Five for Friday!

Linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday Link Up (This is one of my favorite link ups!) again this week!
This week has been super busy and also super fun, I can't wait to share some of it with you!

The past two weeks I have been getting my room ready for a whole new school year and a whole new group of kiddos! I am really excited with how it turned out.  I wish I would have taken pictures last year, so you could all see the old room compared to the new room! I have two favorite parts of my classroom ( ok, I actually love the entire thing but I am only going to share two!)  which are my new classroom lockers and my teacher/small group corner.  Just today I found these sweet little stools (not pictured!)  to go around the kids side of my table! They were only $7.99 (originally $19.99 by the way!)!!!

I have quite a bit of white walls to cover up... it is a work in progress! I'll share photos of my lockers on Monday!

And on Thursday night this happened: Parent Orientation! I was lucky enough that all of my parents were able to make it and I think we had a good time! I can't wait to meet all the kids at Open House next week! EEK!! :)

As part of the back to school link up over at Blog Hoppin', I am sharing just  a little sneak at my daily/weekly schedule for "When Thursday". This is the new lesson plan format I am using this year and I am digging it. It's so organized and I  looooooove when  things are organized! I also love the cute Cara Carroll fonts I used to make it! :)

As part of the same back to school link up, for "What Friday", I am going to talk about my favorite things to teach! My favorite things to teach are letters, letter sounds, and sight words. Well, basically anything to do with reading because reading is one of my most favorite things to do EVER! Over the summer I worked hard to create new games, center activities, and flash cards to make my word work time even more fun for the kids (ok, and myself!)! I can't wait to use them! 

I think I learn this more and more as I get further into my career. I am blessed to have the job that I do and blessed that I find going to work to be so much fun! I am looking forward to another great year starting Monday! 

To all my fellow teachers out there, have a super duper year!!!
