Five for Friday!

Happy Friday Friends!!

Here's a random thing for you...
notice the phone in that cartoon above.
Do they even make phones with cords anymore??
Second random thing is that this post has been updated to help you if you are searching for this:
So, keep reading and I will tell you the story behind that "window frame"!

First, you need to know that this post in its original format was a link-up with other teachers. And I always begin by recognizing the host of the link up.
So, thank you, Doodle Bugs....let's get going with my five three random Friday things!

 I love Pinterest!
Here's my crafty item of the week:
Now, here's the TRUE story behind that photo.
Y'all when I published this post I had no idea how Pinterest worked. I just would find pins I liked and then put them on this blog to share. I had NO IDEA that the photos would get repinned by other people and then repinned about 48,000 times!
So, that fabulous crafty frame has been around for almost two years and it gets repinned constantly and sends people to this blog post to find out about it. 
Only, now here's the stupid thing, I have no idea what it should link to in order to help you find the original source. 
I feel terrible about this- because you saw it on Pinterest and clicked on, expecting to find it to purchase or at least directions for how to make it and instead you find a teaching blog.
I am so sorry.
So, I recently poured through Google and Pinterest and Etsy and found some similar items for you! All of these are linked to their sources and not back to my blog so you can go and check them out!!holiday-craft-ideas/c1t6i
Click {HERE} or on the photo to get to this one!
Click {HERE} or on the photo to go to the source.
Click {HERE} or on the photo to go to the source.
Click {HERE} for this one and I feel like this is the source for the original photo because they are so similar!
This last one is found in a terrific little Etsy shop that has tons more windows- check it out!
(And I am not affiliated in any way with any of the shops you may find linked to those fabulous frames!)

If you are here because you know this is a teaching blog, continue reading!

STEM Challenge: All about building a car that rolls using some basic and simple materials.
Yes, my friends, that is a car built from a bunch of junk.
My third graders were challenged with this and after two class sessions they built some really creative cars.
The only rule of the task was that the car had to roll.
This was quite hard, but we had an amazing number of cars that worked. The one in the photo, sadly, did not roll. When I pointed out to the group that it resembled an airplane, I was told, "Yes ma'am, it transforms into an airplane!"

If you are a TpTer you will totally get a kick out of this.
 Here is the evolution of a product cover.

You have to admit, this is funny.

And that is all...... this should have been five random things, but it's only three.
Some weeks my brain is just dead.....

Have a great Easter Weekend!
