Five For Friday

It's about that time again... time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the Five for Friday Linky Party.

I got this puppy up on TpT... can you say FINALLY?

I had a little student teacher for the day.... well sort of. As part of a school fundraiser we have a Teacher of the Day for students. Parents can bid in a silent auction for their child to be the teacher of the day. It is a lot of fun...and a great way to earn money for our school. This year I had a darling 3rd grade girl who was in my class a few years ago.

The kids start at a staff meeting in the morning.... funny how different their perspective is on attending one of these :) They LOVE it... being in staff room.... pretty special!

Then here is a clip of her writing some of the ideas the students were sharing with her. Honestly the clip board is key.
Let me list the things students need to LOVE this day:
-a staff meeting... with a donut
-a lanyard that has a whistle
-a clipboard
-the ability to add 5 minutes to recess
 And I would like to say this little teacher made me smile because almost all the things that came out of her mouth you know she has heard a teacher say to her! It was perfect.

Paint-o-rama! With Mother's Day and Open House approaching we painted like crazy this week. And while I had a little teacher to help me out.... we went for it! These are finger painted spring flowers that will be part of our Mother's Day celebration.

My Erin Condren phone case arrived! 'nuff said....

I "launched" (such a fancy word) my Facebook page for this blog! Woo Hoo! Now I'm just working on getting a social media button on here. For now I'll just link the image below.

Have a fabulous weekend!!


  1. OH! I am so jealous...your Facebook page looks amazing! I need to get my act together and finish mine up. I guess that would be a good summer project.

    1. That's funny! I read on Hadar's post that she had just put a picture on her instagram and that inspired me to start one at that moment.... so yes, it's me. :) I hope to see you soon!

  3. I love that phone case, it is now on my list. I love the idea of having a teacher for the day. Might have to bring up that idea at my school. Found your blog through the linky and I love it! I am now your newest follower! Hope you can come check out my blog when you get a chance.

  4. Your "Teacher for the Day" sounds great. I always ask for some of my old students to help me when we're doing big projects (like painting). It's amazing how helpful they are!
