Five For Friday- 11/22



I am so excited for our classroom elf to make an appearance! Only three more school days until we have a new addition to our classroom!



I received good news this week- I am going be awarded a grant to add a Hot Dots literacy station to my classroom!


Seven years ago this time of year, John and I were getting ready to take our honeymoon to Disney World. The castle is beautiful at Christmastime! I love all things Disney and all things Christmas! We can't wait to take our girls there for the first time someday!

Not to brag, but I have my December lesson plans done! I am excited to use my Christmas literacy stations during my small group reading lesson. Visit my TPT store to get your copy. I have a wonderful aide who laminates for me and some awesome mom volunteers who cut apart the materials.  I am so thankful for them!

I am so excited for Thanksgiving!  I love this time of year, eating, and spending time with family. We are going from my in-laws' house to my parents' house on Thursday. Lots of good food and good company packed into a busy day!  I am so thankful for my silly little girls!
 Isabella could hardly walk in my tall black boots!

 Olivia decided that sitting in this bin would be a good place to read a book! 

Thank you, Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting this fun linky!


  1. Funny to see your little elf friend as I am debating and debating whether to dive into that whole experience this year. I just don't know!! Enjoy Disney World.... I have been there only once, but been to Disneyland many a time!

  2. LOVE your blog! I'm so excited to share the elf with my sweet babies too. I can't wait to see how everyone sets up their elves.

  3. I'm thinking about doing the whole elf thing. Just not sure. I'm sure they would love it. Your little one in the boots and the other in the bin reading pulled at my heart strings. Missing those days with my boys who are now in their twenties. Be sure to treasure this time in your lives! :)
