Five for Friday!

Lately, it seems like I've only had time for Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday.  I've got a ton of ideas I want to blog about: sight words, St. Patty's Day, new behavior visuals, etc.  I just can't figure out the time.  :/

I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am that it's Friday!  Anyone else have a countdown till spring break?  15 teaching days to go!!!!

So let's recap the past week.  I'm going back till last Friday for this one.

1.  We had our Fun Fair at my school.  It was a great turn out.  Can anyone guess what booth I worked???

I got to spray hair color on the kids for 4 hours!  It was a lot of fun but that was a lot of fumes to breathe in!  Yes, I know I could have worn gloves, but I'm allergic to the powder that is sometimes in gloves.  Not the latex but the powder.  Weird allergy to have, huh?  I try to avoid all balloons, rubber bands, or gloves if possible.  Otherwise I'll feel like my face is on fire!

2.  One of the perks of being part of the military is shopping at the commissary.  Sometimes they have some great sales.
Sometimes.......not so much.  Seriously, I have tons of pictures like this.  My favorite are the ones where the sale price is actually MORE than the regular price.  :/

3.  Thank goodness for Katie at Teacher to the Core!  The other resource teacher had to call out sick unexpectedly.  I told him no worries!  I'll cover his kids and mine.  Katie has this awesome President's Day book for FREE!  It totally saved me.

If you didn't use her book this year, you should go download it {here} for next year.

4.  I finally decided that my classroom needed a super cute welcome sign and one that listed me as the teacher, too.  ;)

I've made welcome signs before back at my old school for my friends.  I've been wondering if other people would be interested in something like this for their classroom???  Maybe I could do some sort of custom order thing?  Would anyone be interested?

5.  I downloaded some great number freebies this week that I'm sure you don't want to miss out on.  Click on the pics to download these freebies!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
