Five for Friday 7-31-15

I couldn't resist this haha!! Why do they do this to us the first few days of school when we need that time in our rooms?!?!?!?

This is my last Friday of summer vaca!!  I am both sad and excited at the same time. Monday is my official first day back and meet the teacher will be Tuesday and then the kiddos will come to school on Thursday! AHHHHHHHHH! Ready or not!!!!
It is time for my favorite Friday link up with the amazing Doodle Bug Teaching! Here is a quick peek at my crazy week:)

I feel that I might just break even after all the trips to the Target Dollar spot, Dollar trees and teacher stores I've made over the last few weeks. I am so incredibly  happy that today was pay day!! I was running on fumes ha!

I finished up my Super Improvers Wall this week! I am happy with the way it turned out. I am looking forward to starting the year off as super improvers!!

I have been running around like crazy this week! Trying to put the finishing touches on my classroom, getting meet the teacher stuff done and wrapping up a few TPT projects! I finally finished these 2 babies and am almost done with #3! Woop Woop!
I love Nursery rhymes! I have noticed over the last few years that fewer and fewer of my kinders know the traditional nursery rhymes! So to help with that I am doing a Nursery Rhyme unit this year and created these center packs for some extra fun:)
Thankfully I got them finished just in time for the Back to School TPT sale!! I have several things in my cart and on my wish list I can't wait to grab next week!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE college football! I am also a die hard Alabama fan:) I can't wait for football season to kick off!!!! They released our schedule and I am really looking forward to Saturdays with friends and family watching football and grilling out! Of course I am hoping to make it to Tuscaloosa for a few home games too!! Do I have any fellow football lovers out there???

Last week Mexican food made it to the Five for Friday and it makes a second appearance this week! I spent all day in my classroom on Thursday and couldn't even think about cooking so we headed to our local Munoz and it was FAB! I could eat there several times a week. It is also conveniently located about 2 miles from my school!

For all my teacher friends who are going back to school or getting ready to head back here's a little eye candy for you!! Ryan appreciates you and so do I! I love the friends I have made on this journey and appreciate you more than you could ever know! 
Thanks for stopping by to read about my week!! 
Head over to Doodle Bug Teaching to link up and join in on the fun!


  1. Ah, I am heading back to school too!!! I can't believe it is already time! I am about to head to my classroom to do a few things as well. I am a football fan too! GO VOLS! I can't wait to friends to come into town for football games! I hope you enjoy your last weekend before kiddos! :)

  2. Hi Jill!
    It's so funny that every teacher seems to experience and feel the same way about back to school meetings! No, we don't have anything better to do :) Your food looks delicious! Even at 7:30 in the morning.

  3. Jill,
    So frustrating when they do that and I just want to decorate/be in my room. :-( Always a struggle. I will be thinking of you on Thursday....I still have until August 31st.

  4. Love all your meme's. They are so true. I'm sick of meetings and pds. . . and they haven't even started. It's bad.

    I told my husband YESTERDAY that I was glad it was Friday. He just looked at me like, What??? because you know, it was Thursday.

  5. That mexican dinner looks absolutely delish! And it looks like you earned it with all your hard work this week. :)

  6. I can't agree with you more about everything they want us to sit through when we have so much else to do! Especially those schools who aren't allowed in the building until the official first day back for teachers....
    I LOVE your Super Improver wall, I'm trying to think of one to go with my theme too!! Your nursery rhyme sets are great, you did a wonderful job on them!! I'm a football fan too, but not so much college ball. Go RAVENS!!!!
    I hope you are able to truly able to enjoy your last few days before school! I can't wait for our classes to team up this year!!

  7. Found you through Five for Friday (I don't have any though HA!) Ditto on all the meetings/PD sentiment! It's officially my last Friday of vacay IN MY BRAIN. After today, summer break is over and the hardcore "get down to business" business begins. I LOVE Mexican food so thank you for making me hungry with that photo :P

  8. My two oldest will be at Mississippi State this year, and are taking my die hard Alabama loving nephew to the Nov 14 game. It'll be interesting, especially since they'll be in MSU's student section!
