Tidbits From This Week: 05/31/13

Happy Friday! I have been super busy this week with post planning. Records, Cleaning, Meetings...Oh My! All done now.

It wasn't all work this week. A few fun things did happen this week that I have to share. I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. Time to share a few favorite things from this week.


1. Faculty Wide Water Gun Fight
I work at the best school ever. When someone said water gun fight on Monday I was so excited. However, I had to go shopping for a water gun. Thankfully, my boyfriend was a help in that department (So Sweet). Here is a picture of me and my teacher BFF Morgan. I believe we were ready! :)

Water Balloons! Water Guns! Buckets! Let's just say we were all drenched by the end of it all. We had a blast!

2. Gifted Certified took a year but I'm done with classes. Yes! I'm officially a gifted certified teacher. I've learned so much and truly enjoyed it. Advocate for Gifted Learners.:)

3. Writing Journals for Next Year
I'm excited to be team teaching next year. I will be teaching Reading, ELA, and Writing. Therefore, I got a jumpstart on journals this week for next year. (Such a planner!) I made these weekly journals one night this week at home as a supplement for Writing to Win. Yes...I love to make worksheets during my free time! (Thanks Mom! She's awesome at layout and design!) I'm already excited about next year. I plan on working on Grab and Go Language Centers next week.

4. Etsy Shopping
I adore Therefore, I did a little Etsy shopping and window shopping this week. One thing that really caught my eye that I will be ordering tonight is the Lock Smock for my classroom door. I heard about it through Amy Lemon's Blog "Step into Second Grade. It gives teachers peace of mind during a lock down situation and it's cute. Check it out! :)

5. Study Stack
Who doesn't like a website that enhances of the learning of students? I was introduced this week to the website Study Stack. (Thanks Nicholson!! She always has great Tech ideas.). On Study Stack, you can create your own flashcards and students can practice vocabulary, sight words, weekly story questions, language skills, and so much more online. I am very excited about using this next year.

Well that really sums up my week. I plan on relaxing this weekend, continue looking for great ideas for next year's class, and enjoying friends. :)
