Friday Linkys

Happy Friday!  Thank you to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting the Five for Friday linky party!

We had the day off on Monday, so Tuesday my class celebrated President's Day by making these cute Abe Lincolns.

The kids wrote about what they would do if they were president. I LOVE their responses!

 I would go in the pool and order Chinese.

"I would play plants vs zombies."

                                                         I would stand up for my country.

This craftivity is available in my TPT store.

My sister and I went shopping after school today.  It was relaxing shopping without a preschooler and toddler!  (And it has been a while since that has happened!) I am excited about this necklace I bought at J Crew Factory. Did you know that you can get a discount by showing your teacher ID there?!

I am pretty excited to be a part of the Facebook Free For All again this month. Thank you to Primary Gal for putting together this awesome opportunity to score lots of freebies!
