Five for Friday + a GIVEAWAY :)

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday {which I haven't done in FOREVER}! Be sure to link up and join in on the fun!

I have been spending a lot of time poolside lately, which is one of my favorite parts of summer! I love just floating around, reading some magazines and indulging in some yummy mocktails {this virgin mojito was amazing!}

I cannot wait to get Mia's nursery completely done! Here is a peek at just a few of the items we have... They are not in their permanent places yet. We need to buy a few more things for shelves and walls, so my goal is to have that done either this weekend or next weekend. And yes, she has her very own pink record player. I got it for her daddy for Father's Day {he loves buying and listening to records}. He already got a record for her, Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack :) Also, is that giraffe not the cutest?! A local artist, Kelsey Davis, makes these adorable plush taxidermy wall mounts! Check out her Etsy shop!

Like just about everyone else, I finally finished The Fault in Our Stars. Such a good book! And it's a really fast read. Now I want to see the movie! 

I posted some new classroom labels, and you have a chance to win them! This Busy Bee themed pack comes with word wall letters, student numbers, table and group numbers, days and months, supply labels, and a classroom banner! Click here or on the first picture to check it out! 

I had some requests for some more math puzzles {similar to my Common Core Number Puzzles}, so I just posted these Telling Time Puzzles! They let students practice time to the quarter hour, and can be used in many ways... for math centers, in math tubs, in small group, whole group, for RTI or enrichment. I think you could even shrink them down and use them in interactive math journals! Click here or on the first picture to check them out {you also have a chance to win this pack!}

I will randomly choose one person to receive their choice of either one of these items! Just leave a comment with your choice, along with your email, and I will select someone randomly in the next couple of days! Happy Friday!


  1. I am in the middle of The Fault in Our Stars and it's so good so far! I think BOTH packs are adorable, but I would love to win the time puzzles! I'm starting math workshop this year so they would be perfect to throw in a center :)

  2. I would love to win the telling time puzzles. Telling time is one of those skills my kiddos always seem to struggle with.

  3. Would love your telling time puzzles!

  4. I would love to win your telling time pack.

  5. Love the bee decor!

  6. Mmmm mojitos are my favorite! Your nursery inspiration looks so cute and I love the name Mia! Those telling time puzzles look really fun!

  7. Both look great but I can see how using the telling time puzzles in class will really help them with this tricky skill!
