Five for Friday! {October 25, 2014}

Woohoo! I'm FINALLY linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday! I am in complete awe of teachers who are diligent enough to do this every week.

Since I've had the week off, I've been able to enjoy plenty of leisurely breakfasts... some of which consisted of tasty little treats like this red fruit tart. Since school began, I rarely finish my coffee before rushing off to pick up my students.

Since I've been introducing plenty of new word sorts to my kiddos, I decided to make something I could post and use in the classroom throughout the year. I'm really happy with how engaged this group is during Word Study. And now that I've taught several different word sorts, they've become (almost) independent as I work with small groups. This is what I've created for my classroom... It will be on sale in my TpT store through the weekend. :)

I hate to say it, but I think I've enjoyed my last day at the beach until next year. The weather has been glorious: all sunshine, no fog... but it looks like it will start cooling off this weekend.

In other news, I've decided to buy myself flowers every week. I just love the way flowers and plants spruce up the apartment, and Trader Joe's had a dozen roses for $7.99, so how could I resist? (I'm pretending they're from a secret admirer.)

And finally, I'm making my first-ever trip to Yosemite this weekend! So, I borrowed this photo from Wikipedia until I can post pics of my own. Unfortunately, since we've been suffering through a drought in this part of the country, I won't see any waterfalls. BUT I'm really looking forward to getting out into nature and away from my computer.

Happy weekend, everyone!

  1. That fruit tart looks delicious! I want one - I love fresh berries! The flowers are beautiful. I love the look of flowers, but I kill them just by looking at them I swear. They just wilt in my presence as if they know I can't care for them :( So I have given up on that end! But they are definitely pretty!
    Five for Fridays are fun link ups - glad you could join!
