Five For Friday!

Happy Friday! 
I love when Friday morning starts off with smiles! I traded morning duty with another teacher, today. So, I was able to greet a lot of our students as they came through the gate. They kept hearing, " Good morning!" And, I loved saying, "Happy Friday!" Loved the smiles when they heard me say that! I normally have the same duty on Thursday mornings! I decided this morning that I like Fridays better!!!
Happy Friday! 

I spent last Summer being crafty and creating so much for my classroom. 
 I posted about these clips here.  At first, I LOVED these clips!!! But, I probably should have used more Mod Podge on the tape OR I should have sprayed them with adhesive...because with a class that moves their clips A LOT, they get used. The tape was coming off, and the clips looked worn down!!!
So, when I found these beauties at Michaels, I was hooked!
  I posted here on how I added a decorative touch to the clips, 
and used these clips for Goodie Bags! So many options!!!



I discovered this salad this week at Costco! It is really good! I add spinach to it and I also added raspberries!! I really like fruit in my salads..kinda odd, I know! But, it's an easy way to get your fruit in! I have a BAD habit of working through my lunch and skipping eating, which turns into bad night time eating! So, I am back on track, and I feel so much better already!


Oh, and the best part? It was $5 for two!

This next activity was inspired by these mittens
from Kinder-Craze!
I planned on making them! They were prepped and everything!!! BUT, the weather did not cooperate! How can we make a mitten craft, when it's hot out?! So, I am saving the mittens (prepped and ready to go) for next year! I knew I still wanted to make a window activity using contact paper and tissue paper, so we made these fun rainbows!



These were so easy! I put out a sheet of contact paper, cut into a square, for each student. Then, I set out the tissue paper. Once they made their rainbow, I put another square of contact paper on top of the rainbow. Then, I cut out the rainbow shape! So easy! So much easier than wax paper and glue, which is how I used to do this! 
Thank you Kinder-Craze for this GENIUS idea and inspiration!!!
