Five for Frunday

I stayed home with a sick boy this week which gave me some time to get a file finished and another one started.

I finished up this 2D shape packet, click on the pic to check it out.

I am really looking forward to finishing this one, it is a maths investigation centred around a pirate looking for treasure.  Kiddos have to solve problems that involve not only number but a range of other skills.  

No pic for this one but our reports went out on Friday and I am so glad to see the back of them.  Now just Parent Teacher Interviews to get through next week and then holiday time!

I went out on Friday night with my husband and some friends to see a band called The Baby Animals, they were around in the 90's so it was a little blast from the past.  I had such a great time, singing, dancing and just cuttin' loose!

I like to do a cook up on Sunday afternoons so that I am ready for the week.  It makes my dinners so much more organised and healthy, it also means we have less take away.  This week I started in the morning and cooked up a batch of 'muffin quiches', I call them this because I bake them in muffin tins.  They are so delicious and means I start the day healthy and happy, they are also great to put in lunch boxes.  They are easy to freeze and just zap in the morning, the only problem I have is my daughter eating them all before I get any.  
Oh do you notice the plain ones?  They are for the food critic of the family, food that is mixed is no good apparently.
I have been thinking about posting some of the meals I prepare in advance so others can see how I organise healthy family dinners for the whole week.  I'd love to hear if there is any interest in this.

It doesn't matter who has the most cupcakes because if you have lots of them it will make you sick.

Finally, a little humour to end the post.  We have been working on solving word problems across Year 2 and this was one of my teaching buddies kids.  I love how he thinks outside the box!  You do notice how many cupcakes I eat :)

Make sure you head over to Doodlebugs to check out some more Five for Friday 


  1. Yes PLEASE post the recipes! I need motivation to get food-organised! :)

  2. Would love to see your recipes and see how you put it all together. I love the logic on the math word problem. Now that is critical thinking!

    1. I love the answer to the word problem! As much as I love cupcakes, I agree with him that that many would probably make you sick. ;)
