I also haven't gotten to give any of it away! So, today there is a giveaway going on, and I'm giving away EVERYTHING I've created so far!! It's at the bottom on #5! :-)
Anywho, let's get on a roll with this Five for Friday!
This week, I got glasses!! AHH! I went to the Dr. two weeks ago. She asked me if I had any concerns with my sight. I said nope, each time I've gotten a check-up I've had 20/20 vision. I hadn't noticed any changes. She then asked me to read the bottom row of letters and I say, "MNIEOD." The Dr. looked at me, giggle and went, "NOPE!" Ha! So, needless to say, my eyesight has changed since my last check up. I'm secretly excited to have glasses. They really enhance that 'teacher look!"
I've been growing very slowly in the belly area and Mr. Hursh caught a cute photo on Saturday of my little tiny bump. It's more like a bloated belly at this point! lol Anyway, we went on a date night to one of our favorite restaurants called Marcella's Italian Kitchen!
Then, yesterday. I decided to go to the teacher store for a little shopping trip. I am being really, really good this summer. I am not spending money on teacher stuff! But wait, I just said I went shopping?! That's right! I had a gift card!!!! :-) Here is what I got!
I also stocked up on some other things a few weeks ago with another gift card to the teacher store! <3 p="">3>
I am really trying to stock up on things that I can see myself using throughout the year and not just once. If you have any must haves for first grade, let me know!
I've also already been planning for the year ahead. So far, I have the first week planned- and almost the second week planned too! My district does not have a curriculum that we have to follow, so planning does take a while... that's why I'm getting a head start. I love that I don't have a curriculum to follow!!! I do a lot of reading to gather ideas! For math this year (because one person can't do it all), I am using EngageNY. I found this website at the end of 3rd grade and wished I could have used it all year. I'm going to use it as a guideline for my lessons... and of course still use my interactive math journals and math stations!
Most of what I've been doing this week is CREATING STUFF!!! :-)
Here is what I've created this summer...so far! There are many more things to come!
Back to School Math Stations - Not out Yet!! ;-)
That is a total of 6 free products!!!
I also haven't done a giveaway yet this summer... so if you are in need of the stuff below.. enter the giveaway at the bottom and you can win it all!
