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!

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! 


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! 

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!!!


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! 


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!!! :)
