Five for Friday September 25, 2015

It's time for some Five for Friday fun! 

 1. I was strolling along at Barnes and Nobel and found a new Pete book and... it was SIGNED!  Only one of them was signed and it was buried at the bottom of a pile.  This is one time I'm happy to be a type A person that checks every book cover to find the most perfect one LOL!

2. Sheet protectors are like magic!  I gave my kids some math facts in a sheet protector and they suddenly wanted to practice their math facts! They said that they loved erasing the facts at the end.  Only children would get joy out of erasing their hard work ;-)

 3. I'm obsessed with my new Origami Owl key chain!  My friend Cassandra @Mrs. 3rd Grade made this happen!  I wanted to have something in it that represented different aspects of my life.  I didn't know how to incorporate my Blog/TpT life and the super creative Jennifer @Blessed Teacher had the brilliant idea to engrave my name onto a back plate! I LOVE it!

4. I was putting together this substitute handbook flip book and found this little nugget in my crafting stash!  It's called a bone folder and it helps you make the most perfect creases.  If you are a nut about this kind of stuff, you will love having one!  You can find them at craft stores :-)  This one in particular is made by Martha Stewart and I picked it up at Michael's.

5. The other day I felt like having a smoothie and I remembered I had this little card right here:
McDonald's was giving them out on Teacher Appreciation Day, unfortunately I don't think they are being given out across the country. I sure hope they do so one day!

Make sure to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching!


  1. love the idea with the page projectors!! that's definitely on my to do list now :)

  2. Don't I know that children love erasing their work - I have to be super quick to stop them doing so before I've had time to check their work!! Sounds like you've had a lovely creative week and your key chain is wonderful and so unique :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

  3. I'd never heard of Pete the Cat until I got more into TpT and blogging - it sounds like everyone goes crazy for those books - well done you though on finding a signed one - that's a great bit of luck! I love flip books, I pretty much either have them for everything or they are on my to do list waiting to be made!

    Have a great weekend,

  4. I love that little paper folding tool. Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas!

  5. Isn't it funny how a sheet protector can be a game changer? It always amazes me what kids will find entertaining!

  6. Those bone folder tools are so great - I love how they help define the crease, and then make the crease so nice and sharp!
    And love your Origami Owl keychain! That is too cute!
