Five for Friday!

Happy Friday Friends!

 Today, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!


This week I finally completed Chalk Dust Decor: A Chevron and Chalkboard Classroom Decor Set! This is the first of seven different color sets I plan to release throughout the summer. Click the link above or the picture below to check it out!


Hooray! My package is on its way! I placed an order for my very first Erin Condren Lesson Planner a few weeks ago and I'm anxiously patiently awaiting its arrival.


I came across these fun colored book bins in the Target dollar spot a few days ago. I'm sure they won't last long so don't say I didn't warn you!

This week I hit the jackpot of all yard sales! This lady taught for 18 years and this is only about a third of what she had to sell!


I hate to admit it, but my house is officially bursting at the seams with all the stuff that I am collecting for my future classroom (especially books). I have books stored under beds, couches, and in multiple storage containers. Since I will begin student teaching this fall, I will need quick and easy access to all of my books to supplement my lessons.

After many hours on Pinterest and a lot of consideration I came up with the perfect solution. These ice cube bins make great book bins! They are just the right size for browsing and storing an entire series of books without being too bulky.

In addition, this summer I will be making a trip to Ikea to pick up two of these

and one of these

I ultimately plan to create a bench like the one below to serve a dual purpose of seating and storage.

What do you think? Do you have any storage tips you would like to share?

Have a Great Weekend!

Five for Friday!

Happy Friday Saturday!

Today, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

1. This week I introduced my first educational resource! Contractions with a Cherry on Top is a Common Core aligned center that allows your students to "get the scoop" on contractions. This center includes over 75 different contractions and is designed to allow each student to master contractions at various levels of learning. If you are looking for a great way to introduce or review contractions with your students click on the picture below to check it out!


2. I ordered my first Erin Condren Lesson Planner last night! I was torn between 3 different designs and I believe I chose the perfect one! What do you think?

3. This week I received my official acceptance letter to the College of Education!


4. Who loves Old Navy? I know I do! This week I found the perfect bathing suit at oldnavy.com and placed my order. I cannot wait until it arrives!

5. Finally, I have spent the majority of my week working on my latest product. I am in the process of creating a Chalkboard and Chevron Decor Set. I have really enjoyed working on this product and I think it will be perfect for the upper elementary school teacher who doesn't want a "cutesy" classroom theme.


What would you like to see included in this decor set? Please leave me a comment below and let me know!

Have a Great Weekend!
