My First Five for Friday!

Since this is my first time linking up with Five for Friday, I am going to "cheat" a little and include things from the last couple of weeks!

My sweet daughter decided she wanted to make cupcakes on her own last night. Since she is now almost 12 years old, I figured it was time to let her try! It certainly started out with a "Bang!"
Thankfully, she wasn't hurt. It just scared the wits out of her!!!! However, she quickly recovered and made some beautiful cupcakes for us:

(I am an Oregon Duck, and Dad is a Washington Husky, can you tell???)

I just joined the ranks of Jamberry Independent Consultants, and am loving it. I have not had any official parties yet, but already have had enough sales to earn LOTS of free product. If you haven't tried them yet, you really should. I love that they are easy to apply, inexpensive, and don't chip!
Here are my first two "Jamicures"!

I would be happy to send you a sample, if you would like give them a try. Just click here.
If you would like to browse the over 300 different wraps that are available, visit my website here. And if you would like to keep up with special offers on Jamberry (or my TpT store), please visit my Facebook page, The Inspired Soul with Shannon Murdock, and click the "Like" button!

Costco pomegranates are here!!!! I've already been through 2 boxes. Need I say more? 

I have Parent Teacher conferences next week and always like my Fourth Graders to do a self-reflection to talk about with their parents. The format I use is this one, by Second Grade Survivor, and just tailor it to my class needs.

We have Student-Led conferences, so I make a checklist of the things they are to share with their parents for the first 15 minutes. Then they come talk to me for the second 15 minutes and we go over report cards.

What do you do for conferences? I am always interested in hearing other ideas!!!

My last blog post chronicles our time investigating turbines. We had a blast!!! You can read about it here.

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area, contact the BPA to have someone come out to your school and do this great activity with your class!
