My First Five For Friday and a Freebie!

I'm finally linking up with the very awesome Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching to share 5 random things from this week and I'm also linking up with Teaching Blog Addict to share a cute freebie! Every Saturday and Sunday I check out everyone's posts from Friday and I always say to myself... I'm going to link up next week! By Friday I'm usually completely spent and can barley even lift my phone up to check facebook {shocker!}. This week, I'm feeling strangely awake and ready to rock and roll with my first Five For Friday and freebie Friday!

Here are my five randoms from the week... 

Freebie Fridays1. I finally finished all of my Second Grade Number of the Week Display Packs and my very last one {primary polka dots} needed a different sparkly bubble frame than all of the rest. My very terrific husband, Mr. Photoshop, whipped up this very cute and sparkly blue one! It's yours for free, just click on the frame! Please see terms of use.

2. On Tuesday I was on facebook when I came across this very AMAZING Technology Tuesday post from Ahsley Hughes of The School Supply Addict. I must have been living under a rock because I never knew the awesome things you could create with Word Art! OMG! Check out her post to see more! I've been slightly obsessed with word art since then...
3. Today many teachers in my school took part in Accelerated Reader's Read The Most From Coast To Coast. I succumb to peer pressure, so we spent the second half of our morning and the whole afternoon "reading to self" and taking A.R. tests. My class took and passed 113 quizzes. I wasn't completely thrilled about it since I am a believer in reading for the love of reading, not reading to take quizzes. My kids had fun though, so I guess that's what matters too... 

4. How cute is this little munchkin? She celebrated this "FUN" day today in pre-k! I love the hats and little bow-ties that they made. SUPER CUTE!  I had to take a picture of her in front of the props that were made for our school's game night tonight. You can guess what the theme is! 

5. This hasn't happened yet, but I'm so excited about it! 
We're going to see WICKED on Sunday!! This will be my third time seeing it, but it will be Makenzie's first musical EVER! She's been listening to Wicked since the day she was born, in fact she was listening in utero and she didn't even know it! When she was a baby she would dance in her car seat to it, and now she sings it with me in the car. Her favorite song is popular! I can't wait to see her face light up as soon as the orchestra plays the first note. =) 

I'm so thrilled that I was able to stay up late enough on a Friday to talk about my Five or Friday! I hope I keep it up next week too!! 



  1. I have been pinning from your post! Love it all! I need that background filling tutorial!
