Five for Friday!

Whew! I made it! It's been a long week, and I'm SO glad the weekend is finally here! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky party.

This app is Epic! But seriously, it is pretty great. It's s free app that you or students can download for access to thousands of free books! You could use it in the classroom in a variety of ways. I'm going to use it for our upcoming informational reading and writing unit. Epic! Books for Kids

We've been working on making inferences about character traits, and we just started using this resource. I love it because it challenges students to use text evidence to support their thinking, while building vocabulary at the same time. You can check out this resource in my TpT store HERE.

This panna cotta is one of the easiest desserts I've ever made. And it's delicious. And it reminds me of living in Rome, which makes me both happy and sad. I'll be taking it to a dinner party tomorrow night. I think I'll top it with blueberry puree this time. Mmmmm.

I didn't know this was a 775-page novel when I downloaded it to my Kindle, but it's a great read. I love Donna Tartt's writing style, and I'm a sucker for Pulitzer Prize winners. I feel compelled to read them since I focus so much on reading instruction in the classroom.

I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I just discovered Grey's Anatomy, and I'm completely addicted. I hear that it loses its appeal after about 5 seasons, so I'll be looking for a new fix after that. ;)

Happy weekend!

  1. Well, Erica, you sent me off on a bent after Panna Cotta. That recipe looks good, though I also cruised around for one with less fat. Found one with buttermilk. Might give it a try. Also will check out The Goldfinch. I got several bookstore gift cards for Christmas. Thanks for new suggestions! See you around. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom
