Five for Friday!

This week I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching again for Five for Friday!

I bought Valentine's Day socks at the dollar store to wear next week! I am so excited to wear them :)

I was so excited to have a snow day on Monday I couldn't even contain myself. We got so much snow, we actually ended up with about 15 inches when everything was all said and done. It was up to my knees halfway through the day!


I posted my FIRST bundle ever to TPT earlier this week. I was so excited to post these and hope that they will do well. I have shared in a recent blog post about my new obsession with task cards and I am actually thinking about using them for morning work soon!

I finally got my new camera! I actually got a Samsung camera for Christmas but it didn't work out of the box... Yes, I know, you didn't think that could happen... me neither. So long story short Samsung wouldn't do anything about the camera, but the store I ordered from, Crutchfield was wonderful and replaced it with this beauty! I absolutely love it and am so excited to learn all about it. You can look forward to better quality photos!

I love these sentence strips. I did a sight word lesson just practicing sight words on these sentence strips and it worked wonderfully. I love that they have these at the dollar store because it doesn't make me feel bad about using them up.

 After we went over the words and came up with sentences for them and spelled some of them we made sight word collages. I wish I had taken a picture of the student work but, they turned out really nice. The students were allowed to write the words every which way, and write in all different types of letters (bubbles, swirly, wavy, etc.) I put a few of the sight words at each table and the students moved around to get all of the sight words. When they had all of them or an appropriate amount they were allowed to decorate the words by coloring them with colored pencil or crayon. They LOVED it. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. I guess I'm heading to the Dollar Store for sentence strips! I haven't been in there in months...

    1. You're much better than me! I go there way too often. Happy hunting!


  2. Those sentence strips are so cute! I'm going to buy some this weekend!

    I'm so jealous of your snow! I doubt we'll get any in NC this year.

    1. They always have them at my Dollar Tree and are the best! I know a lot of teachers that just laminate a whole pack and use them as dry erase sentence strips. I am wishing some of our snow your way... we're supposed to get another 15 inches Sunday night! - It's a little bit too much for me :)
