Five for Friday! January 30, 2015

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching Five for Friday linky party for the first time!

This week wasn't typical as far as weather goes. We don't usually get three feet of snow in a week! Thankfully we didn't lose power, but we did spend a lot of time shoveling, snowblowing, and sledding. I also tried out my new snow shoes!
 The next two photos were actually *before* the blizzard, on Sunday. We had snow before the blizzard! After the blizzard, well, we had a LOT more!

Perler beads have been a big hit at our house in the past month. They lend themselves perfectly to Minecraft creations since each bead can be a pixel. This week, the creations took a slight turn for the artistic. This is an abandoned mineshaft...obviously.

I have been trying intermittent fasting for a few weeks. I'm not sure how long I will continue, but two days a week I don't really eat all day until dinner. Needless to say, after a whole day of not eating, this looks and tastes especially delicious!

Tax season is here! I printed out a 1040-EZ and showed my 8 year old the basics of filing an income tax return. We used an imaginary W-2 and situation, and he has now expressed interest in filing a more complicated form! After I snapped this photo, we figured out the different in tax amounts based on various salaries. It was right up his alley!

I had purchased the most ADORABLE zombie clip art ever from Edu-Clips (oh my, do I love Sarah's work!), and I just had to make some fun printables with these lovely zombies. My kids just love logic puzzles and graphing activities, so there are a bunch of logic puzzles, along with two graphing pages, and then some other fun stuff. The crazy word alphabetizing activity turned out to be the most popular one. I know it's hard to read, but Mr. Big 3rd Grader insists on writing in cursive, even though it's not the neatest. These are a temporary dollar deal!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
