Five for Friday: Summer Break and a Freebie


I'm so excited to post this from my new blog website.  Check out this week's Five for Friday linky!


School's Out - Today is my first real day of summer vacation!  I am finished with summer school and pd's!


Michael's Grab Bags - If you have never experienced Michael's Grab Bags, you are missing out. Grab Bags are bags or boxes filled with random stuff.  They are only $2.  This time my mom was able to find 3 boxes (and share her loot with me)!

These huge boxes were filled with tons of goodies.

There were a lot of graduation related items.  These Chalkboard Surfaces were my favorite!  I know I will use them in my classroom.  I am not sure how quite yet but I love them.  


Sneak Peek - I am looking forward to an email today.  It will contain a preview of the next story written by my former student, Reilly Jackson!  He has only told me it's another children's book.  I can't wait to see what it's about. 

Please use my affiliate link to check out one of his books below.


nErD Camp - Now that I am on summer break, I am looking forward to vacations.  My first one will be to nErD Camp next week.  I can't wait to go and will write all about it!



Freebie - This week, the freebie is When Charlie McButton Lost Power Bundle.  It contains the entire Reading Skills Packet, Differentiated Spelling Packet, and Weekly Take Home Letters.  It's aligned to Scott Foresman Reading Street.  It's the first story, ready to go when you get back to school.  Click the pic below to take you to it. 

Hurray!  This freebie is only good until Sunday, July 10th at midnight!
