Five for Friday...Yep, on a Sunday!

I always have such good intentions to join linkies on the days they are posted, but it's so very rare that I accomplish that goal! But, hey, better late than never, right! Must.Be.Better.At.Joining.Linkies.On.Time. HA!

So, this is the first time I have joined Doodlebugs Teaching's Five for Friday Linky! I have checked it out many, many times and I decided this time, I had to join the fun!

Here are my 5 random things from the week!

ONE:
We read the books David Goes to School and No, David, both by David Shannon, this week. I knew I had to add this cute craftivity by Julie Lee to our lesson. My students absolutely adored this! I will say that a craftivity with 33 firsties is VERY different than a craft with 26 Kinders and a partner teacher! We are learning and I know it will only get better! 

TWO:

I shared this picture on Instagram and it was such a wonderful reminder to so many, that I thought I would share here, too. This is up in my staff lounge right now. I work at a school that definitely has many students that this is so fitting. I love the reminder and read this daily, often every time I walk in the lounge. And, definitely more days than others! 
 
THREE:
 

 
Um, yeah...This was my kitchen table earlier this week! Aaaaahhhhhh! So many of my projects and crafts have been taking over. I have to keep reminding myself this is why I got a bigger desk for my upstairs office. For some reason, I still keep using the kitchen table! 
 

Luckily, this is what my table looks like, tonight!!! Still a few projects on it, but at least now they aren't taking over!!!

FOUR:
 

I am sharing this from Instagram! Are you following me on Instagram? I share soooooooo much on there! Check it out when you get a chance! I am going to link up with Miss Kindergarten , A Cupcake for the Teacher, and A Modern Teacher sharing what I created from products from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store! I can't wait to share with you...later this week! 

FIVE:


I am in a Biggest Loser competition at my school! The buy in was $20. Our initial weigh-in was on 9/13. We weigh-in every Friday and the final weign-in will be on 11/22. Winner takes ALL! We have a total of 17 people participating, so that's a nice PRIZE! Just in time for Christmas shopping!!! 

I don't know about you, but I am a yo-yo when it comes to gaining and losing weight! Right now, I am on track. I officially started my weight loss on 8/6, so I lost quite a bit before this competition started. But, I knew it would still be good for me to join to make sure I stay on track!!! I got 2nd place for our first weigh-in, so I am pretty excited! I am super motivated right now, especially for the extra shopping money! Wish me luck!!! :)
