5 For Friday

I am beyond excited to link up with  Doodle Bug Teaching for my first ever 5 for Friday! Here are 5 random things from my week!

This week I got to spend time with my 2 favorite boys! My very best friend had a BEAUTIFUL little girl last Wednesday and I kept her boys while they took sweet Isabella for her one week checkup. These boys love robots and Chick-fil-a so we got the best of both worlds! I love these fellas so much!

I recently found this quote on pinterest and I love it. Through my TPT, instagram, and facebook journey with my little store I have made some GREAT connections! I am continually inspired and encouraged by all the fabulous teachers out there. 

You all need to go check out this site!! is giving away teacher blogger shirts! All you have to do is go to the site and then go to the teacher blogger page. On that page there is a link for a teacher blogger promotion. It ends 9/30/15 so hurry over!!!!  I hope to receive my shirt soon:)

I am soooooooo excited to jump into project based learning next school year (in 8 weeks!) I am anxiously  waiting on my copy of this book to arrive! I have been doing lots of internet research already. I know my kinders are going to love this! As a school we have been focusing on student discourse and the SIOP model and PBL should be a perfect fit! 

I reached a personal milestone yesterday. 500 followers on TPT! WHAT?????? I still remember having 10 followers and I was one of them! I am so incredibly blessed and so thankful! Teaching is my passion and I love creating activities for my kinders and being able to sell them with other teachers!

Hop over to to Doodle Bug Teaching to link up!
