Five for Friday

Happy Friday! 
I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another Five for Friday.

This week I met up with some teacher friends for a morning at the farmer's market followed by a delicious lunch (pear & fig pizza - amazing!) I just love days like that. Good friends, adventures around our city & delicious eats - now, that's what summer is all about.

I have been doing some organizing around my house lately, getting it ready for the chaos of back to school time. In doing so, I tossed my little collection of washi tape in a vase and stuck it on a shelf in my office.  I'm kind of in love! 

Speaking of washi tape, I covered a bunch of clothes pins with it this week.  I'm ridiculously excited about these!  The plan is to hot glue them to my chalkboard (that I'm planning to paint bright green!) and use them to display student work. I'm getting really excited to get in my room and start seeing all these ideas come together.

But, before I head into my classroom to start getting it ready, I'm going to soak up these quiet mornings, sipping iced coffee,  & devouring the new IKEA catalog. 

I also spent some time this week adding a few new poster sets to my TpT shop. Each set has eleven posters, including six punctuation posters & five parts of speech posters. You can choose from chevron, polka dot or chalkboard backgrounds to best fit your classroom. Go here to check them out for yourself. 


  1. Love your posters! I'm new to 2nd grade this year (always been a firstie), so I've got lots to learn! Following your blog now so I can borrow all your tips! :)
