Five For Friday - Fun Graph App and More

I've done every Five for Friday in 2016!  I'm on a roll!
Thanks Kacey at Doodle Bugs for the fun weekly linky!
I've been asked to buy Girl Scout cookies every day this week.
Yep, my freezer will be full of boxes come March.
On Wednesday a girl asked if I wanted to buy some, and of course I said yes.
I was surprised when she went to her backpack and got her phone.
She told me she's doing all her orders on the app.
She walked me through the app order like a pro.
Time they are a changin.....

We got a surprise 2-hour delay on Tuesday.
I was already up and showered, and saw the announcement on a friend's Facebook post.
The trees in my backyard looked beautiful covered in the heavy snow.

It was a perfect day to pull this out.
These snowmen turn out so cute!
It's in my TpT store for only $2.00.
If you've followed my other posts, you know that we've been working on a unit on Simple Machines.
To complete the unit, we took a field trip to our local history museum which had an exhibit on bikes.
Did you know that Trek bikes are made here in WI?
We were lucky to get a local celebrity, Professor Gizmo, as our guide.
He pulled in lots of connections to Simple Machines as he told about the history of biking in our state.
The kids were able to ride stationary bikes on virtual bike paths!
We've been working on graphs in math.
I found an iPad app that was a perfect match for the unit.
It's called "Teaching Graphs", and the cost is $2.99.
It's worth the money, IMHO.
There are games, and students can also create their own graphs.

Have you heard about Fabletics?
It's a company that sells c-u-u-u-t-e workout clothes, and you get your first outfit for $25!
I got an outfit last week, and I paid $30 because I chose a long-sleeve shirt over a tank.
There is no charge for shipping!
The yoga pants are so comfy I ended up wearing them the night I got the package.
You can sign up for a monthly outfit suggestion emailed to you, however 
nothing gets delivered to you unless you order it. 
I think this is better than Stitch Fix because you don't have to hassle with 
sending items back that you don't like.
You can decline the online outfit suggestion each month.
Quite honestly I signed up just to get the $25 outfit, and will see what the monthly offers are like.
If you want to get your own $25 outfit, check out the site here.

Thanks for stopping by this week!


  1. Your field trip sounds perfect. Thanks for the info about the graphing app. That looks really useful. Have a great week.
    Laughter and Consistency

  2. I really like your graph app. What grades do you think it would be appropriate for? I teach Kindergarten and I'm always looking for great new apps!

    1. Hi!
      I think the app would be best for second grade and up if you are having them using it independently. If you have Apple TV and are able to project the app on a screen, you could use it with Kindergartners and First Graders as a whole group activity.
      Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I have heard about Fabletics but I haven't checked it out yet! Kate Hudson is so cute and if she designed the clothes, they must be Fab, right??? Love your snow pic!!
