Five for Friday - Student Skype

Once again I am late to the party, but still wanted to join in. It's always so fun to see what everyone has been up  to during the past week.  Thanks to Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting.
1. My class had the rare opportunity to Skype with a group of researchers at ExxonMobil on Wednesday.  I attended the Mickelson/ExxonMobil Teacher's Academy last summer, and was able to reconnect with people who work in the STEM field.  It was a great experience for my students!

I will blog more about this on Technology Tuesday!
2. My students used newspapers to review various skills through this small group station activity. They had to look for pronouns, compound words, numbers over 1,000 and lots more. 
3.  We worked on our realistic fiction stories in the computer lab.  I was so proud of how hard my third graders worked at typing their work, and inserting free clipart to enhance their stories.
4.  I made a yummy broccoli cheese soup.  It was so easy to make, and you can find the recipe here.
5. I volunteer at our local Performing Arts Center, and had to take tickets on Friday night for a traveling Broadway troupe's performance of The Addams Family.
I have to give a shout out to a couple of bloggers who are hosting special events.  First, you'll want to head over to Fifth in the Middle to check out all the work Diane's done on setting up bloggers by state. Also, she is organizing a March Madness give-away that looks really fun!
 Also, I've joined in on the 300 Followers celebration hosted by the girls at Collaboration Cuties -- lots of great prizes to be won over there, and they could be yours!
