5 for Friday: Whew!

The first week back from Spring Break is always a kicker isn't it?! Yikes! I'm happy to say that we are almost done with the week. Only a few more hours!

I loved every minute of Spring Break :) I took my kiddos to go see Home the movie.. SOOOO cute! You should definitely go see it!

Target Dollar Spot Finds! {Forever Freebie Included}


We were in Target earlier...dangerous dangerous place... for my wallet! I went in looking for a baby gift but I had my two sweet kiddos with me. They started with the 'Can I haves' which led us to the dollar spot. It's perfect for when the 'Can I Haves' hit!

My son found this gem which would be perfect for those tactile children who need to actually stretch out their words with a little bit of help. It's a cute little Doxen!




I found this great set of knock-off Jenga set that is perfect for alphabet and sight words next year. I made up this great freebie to go along with it. Just print, cut, and tape or glue to the blocks!

Student Teacher Gift

My student teacher has been AMAZING!!! She has had many fabulous lessons, engaging activities, and fabulous projects. The kids have loved having her teach them for the past several weeks. I will be very sad to see her end her student teaching in 3 weeks!!

To show her our thanks for an awesome job, I put together a bag of treats for her. Several of the kids brought in items to add to it as well!

This is THE bag as a teacher. I added her monogram to it to personalize and then began filling it up:
Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote

This is an amazing book for new teachers. It's about the specific classroom routines that you should introduce, ways to teach it, lesson plans to do the teaching, PLUS pitfalls to avoid with each one! They have different sections for different grade levels too.

THE Classroom Management Book

Colored card stock... you can never have too much as a teacher! I got her loads of packs at Michael's when they had a sale 3 weeks ago for $2 a pack. These from Amazon are an amazing deal as well! You get way more sheets in a pack :)



Oh how I love colored Sharpies... they make everything prettier!

My heart flutters at the thought of sticky notes :)



Which is why I bought her TONS of them... we share the same heart-fluttering thought!

We all know we have stress now and then (ha!) so one of my students sent in this wonderful lotion for Stress Relief. It smells SO good!



If I had to pick a favorite pen.. these are it. I have purchased at least 4 packs this year just because I use them so much! I have them in my purse, at my desk, at home, and in my school bag.



What is your favorite treat for your student teacher? Mine loved all of her goodies today!
