FIve for Friday {02-15-13}

Like everybody else, what a busy week!!  I'm jumping right into my Five for Friday and am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching tonight.

1. I have some amazingly creative parents.  Here are a couple of the goodies I received yesterday.
Hershey kiss mouse!
"Valentine we go together like milk and cookies."  Included in the bag was a crazy straw and cookies!
2. One of my little firsties was so excited about her valentines, but could not read the names on the cards in her bag.  She ran up to me to ask who it was from and then ran to the child and with a huge hug to each child in our class, she said "Thank you SO much!  I love you and Happy Valentine's Day!"  She melted my heart!

3. My friend, a second grade teacher in my building, is new to TpT!  Brittany is an amazing teacher and I would love to help her store get some fabulous traffic!  She recently finished a word problem activity.  Here are a couple of pictures.  Click on one of the images below or here!

4. I have just finished another word work packet - this one has ing/ink word families.  I'm giving it to my followers as a freebie!  A 15 page packet with activities for a week, including word cards, I have ... who has game cards, Write the Room cards with word boxes, and a recording page (with a couple extra pages included!). I hope you enjoy!  :)

5. I spent a couple of hours with my grandma tonight; my grandfather died unexpectedly in May 2012 and not having him here for our birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving and Christmas have been difficult.  They were amazing together and a godly example for Josh and I, as well as my cousins and their spouses.  I have been blessed!

Have a fabulous weekend! 


  1. Love that story of the firstie who hugged everyone and said "I love you!" They really are so sweet!
