Five for Friday!

Phew!  The warm weather hits and my calendar sure fills up!  Yesterday was our last Friday of the school year since this Thursday is our last day.  I will definitely miss my kiddos, but I am looking forward to spending more time with my family and friends.

Since it's {obviously not} Friday, it's time to link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share my 5 random  photos of the week!

1. We did a simple Father's Day craft yesterday that I got from Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.  The kids decorated the shirt and glued the pocket on.  Then they wrote a note to their dad (grandpa, uncle) and placed it in the pocket.  How cute is that?!

2.  I got to order teacher supplies this week!  We were given a dollar amount and a list to choose from.  I was so excited!  I have never done this before.  I'm not sure if we weren't given the option or if I just missed the memo every year.  Probably the latter.

3. I have been organizing and packing up my classroom for the end of the year.  My construction paper was in neat piles in my closet (take a peek here) but the colors were all mixed up.  Yeah, my OCD didn't like that.  With some help from my kiddos, we got it to color coordinate a little bit better!  I started packing it into plastic file bins.  The construction paper fits perfectly!

4.  We went on our field trip to the Mystic Aquarium!  You can read more about that here.

5.  Summer is {almost} here!  We headed down to our beach house this weekend and broke our the beach chairs.  They needed a little cleaning, so this is what the yard looked like:

Happy Weekend!


  1. Hi Sara,

    Thanks for stopping by and being my 200th follower! Love the idea for the construction paper. I always have it in the closet and it is a disaster by the end of the year. This year, I just gave it away lol. So do you teach in Connecticut? I used to teach in Willimantic before moving to Texas a few years ago.

  2. Enjoy this last week with your kiddos. Y'all's field trip looks like it was a blast. And YAY for school supplies!! :-)

  3. I love all of your colorful beach chairs!

  4. I confess... my construction paper is in order by color. It looks like a rainbow when I open my cabinet, but I always can tell immediately if a color is getting low!
