Regardless, Friday is Friday and I'm happy to be linking up again with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
I also found a pair of foam dice, some "read between the lines" glasses and the sweet little finger spy eyes I saw on a blog early this week (sorry I can't remember who blogged about them).
2. Last Saturday I went to a wonderful test prep inservice that was put on by Smekens Education Solutions (check them out here, you'll be glad you did). It was the best $10 I've spent in a while. The inservice lasted an hour and a half and was full of great ideas for reading and writing test strategies for students. Our state test (ISTEP) is in less than two weeks and I learned some great ideas for helping students! Here are some anchor charts that I made for my classroom this week.
3. This week I had a break through! You may be thinking DUH! but I was thinking A-HA!! I learned how to bundle products into a zip file! I've been wanting to bundle some of my items for TpT but had no idea how to do it. I found out how on a TpT forum. (If you are a TpT seller and have never gone on their forums, go now! There is a wealth of information!) I now have my four Gumball Math Workstations bundle in my stores. Buyers can save $6.00 by purchasing the bundle instead of each individual packet. Yippee!
4. On Tuesday evening something happened that I never thought I would happen. My oldest daughter had her first orientation for high school in the fall. I can't believe my baby is going to be a freshman in high school! How is it possible that she can go from this
to this overnight??
5. This weekend I get to have my nails done and dress up! Each February my husband and I go with a group of friends to a Red Dress Ball. It's always a great time because we love spending time with friends and I love dressing up!! Here is the dress I'll be wearing.
(If I don't look too hideous, I'll post pics later this weekend)
Have a great weekend!!
