Five for Friday June 14


I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.  I missed Five for Friday last week so here are five random things from the last 2 weeks.

1. Today I found out that I will be teaching first grade next year! I am sad to be leaving second grade but I am very excited for a new adventure in first grade. (Thanks for the cute number graphic)

2. I posted several new products to my TPT store this week.  I posted a fun Birthday Book writing activity (you can read more about it in my post here).  I also posted a fun Bingo Game for practicing sight words with little first graders!  I am so glad I got this game put together so I can use it in my classroom next year.  I plan to post Bingo games for the second and third grade sight words over the next few weeks.

3. I tried out a new recipe this week!  These pretzels were so easy to make and they only took 30 min start to finish!  (Mine are nowhere near as pretty as the ones in the original blog post)

4. Congrats to the class of 2013!  I loved getting the chance to see my pretty younger sister graduate last Friday (which is why I missed posting my Five for Friday). (Graduation hat from

5. I crossed another book off of my summer reading list!  I really like The Dead and Buried by Kim Harrington. I love YA fiction, especially ghost stories like this one! I  recommend this book if you are looking for something that's a little on the scary side.

  1. I love how you have already started making things for your first grade classroom! First grade is a blast. I taught it for 12 years! I am so glad I found your blog through this week's linky. I am thrilled to be your newest follower. I look forward to reading more.
