Classroom Library, Presidents, and Shopping Finds!

Happy Friday! Linking up with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday!

1. How often do you organize your library? I try to have the kids clean it out every couple of weeks.  It was looking like a complete mess so I knew it was time to put the kids to work :-D

2. Don't you love it when you think you are done with grading and then find new stacks of papers to grade? This mug says it all.

3. We have been learning about presidents and used Babbling Abby's anchor chart resource to create this one! This was my first attempt at lettering an anchor chart.

4. I felt like I hit the jackpot this week when I found all these books at Goodwill. Most were hardcovers and in perfect condition! $37 for all these beautiful books!

5. Do you love Rae Dunn? I've been shopping for RD for months and can't ever find anything in stores. So when I walked into one of my favorite local shops and found this, I kind of freaked!
The shop owner said she was cleaned out by the time we got there, so now I'm awaiting the next shipment!

That's it for me! What have you been up to lately? Please link up for Five for Friday to share your week!

Newsletters, Flexible Seating, and Smart Water

Hello! Time for some Five for Friday

1. I swear the second half of the year FLIES by! It didn't hit me that it was March until I was filling out our newsletters and calendars! 
Newsletters that are easy to edit and read! Great for parent communication!

2. I saw these stability chairs on Amazon and I just had to get one to try it out. The kids loved it! I'm a little jealous that I can't use it :-D
I love these stability chairs for flexible seating! The colors are perfect!

3. One of my favorite times of the day is Read-to-Self time. Its such a joy to see my kids reading and loving it.
Read to self time in action!

4. These little books are too cute for words! I saw them at Lakeshore.
These little notebooks are perfect for Read Across America!

 5. We had two full days of testing this week and I wanted to give my kids a little encouragement before the test! These water bottle labels quickly transform all water into "smart" water :-)
These Smart Waters are so fun! Great way to motivate and hydrate our little learners before testing!

Timer, Flipbooks, and Clean Desks

It's Friday again and that means, it's time for Five for Friday!

1. I try to tidy up my desk every day, but sometimes if it gets extra cluttered, I stay a little extra late on Fridays. I love walking in on Monday morning to a spotless desk! It's a great way to start the week.
Love the look of a nice clean desk!

2. Do you admire beautiful hand lettered projects? I definitely do! I decided to give it a try with THIS book.

Well, Chalkfull of Love released a set of her favorite lettering tools that I had to have! She releases these here and there on limited quantities via her website. If you want one, keep an eye on her IG because that's where she announces when they are available. 
The perfect lettering kit!

3. It's no secret that I'm a fan of flipbooks!  We have been learning about presidents and I made a few fun ones for us to use.
Time saving and paper saving mini-flipbooks.
I love February but there is so much to teach! We need a few extra February days :-) 

Love these little social studies mini flipbooks!

4. I picked up this timer this week and we started using it. I am in LOVE! I've used timers before but having the kids actually see the red that actually shows how much time we have left,  has been SO helpful! There are different sizes. I went with the largest size that can be seen from anywhere in the classroom. Game changer!
The perfect timer to use in the classroom!

5. Our curriculum night was on Wednesday. We prepped these books to hand out to parents. I love having all these tips in one handout. I like to copy extras so I have them on hand for parent conferences.
The perfect editable flipbooks for curriculum night!

6. An extra one :-D We were to a different school in the district for some PD and I saw these from my friend A Cupcake for the Teacher! They are so cute!
Adorable 100th Day of School project

We ran out of time and didn't get to make them. I'll have to make sure there's time for them next year!
