Five for Friday!!!

 It's Five for Friday time on this beautiful Saturday afternoon!! Yesterday, I was enjoying a much needed family fun day on my first day of summer!!! Yeah, that's right....IT'S SUMMER!!! Excited about having time off....ahhhh, I can't wait to sleep in late with my little boy, play, play, play, travel to the beach, create things on my majorly neglected "create to do list", get back into blogging again on my majorly neglected blog, and simply just not making many plans & being spontaneous!! 
Oh, how I love summertime!!! 

And my random highlights of this week are....

How do you get your students' desks clean during the last week of school?!? 
 My kiddos had ohhhh so much fun and their desks were sparkling, baby!!!
We had a yummy ice cream sundae fiesta to celebrate the end of the school year!!
Thursday was my last day of post-planning. After hours of cleaning, organizing & moving stuff around, I was finally all packed up and ready for summer!! See you in July, sweet classroom {we go back July 31st}!!!
My son has been wanting to go to the zoo for a long time. We are going through a bit of an animal phase right now. He just can't get enough of them...borderline obsessed to be exact!! Soooooo on the first day of summer, we knew where we were headed... straight to Zoo Atlanta! The weather was perfect, animals were beautiful, & Parker was able to feed a giraffe out of his hands!!! If you're in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend it!!

Make sure to check out the Teachers Love Oklahoma fundraiser!! Today is the last day to make a $25 donation and receive over $250 of teacher created products!!  All proceeds go directly to the Oklahoma City Red Cross! For more info, click <here>!

Hope you have a blessed Memorial Day weekend!!!

Five for Friday {with a freebie for you}!

 I'm back for another awesome round of Five for Friday & I get bonus points this time because it's actually FRIDAY!!! HA!!

I hope y'all had a great week! My kiddos and I enjoyed our last full week together...exciting and bittersweet all at the same time. I swear every year just seems to fly by faster and faster!

Okay, here we go....

 It's *almost* o-fish-ally summer!!
To celebrate, I made these little treat bags for the last day of school!! All you need to make your own are Swedish Fish {buy an extra bag if your like me and can't stop eating them}, ribbon, clear treat bags, and the "It's o-fish-ally summer!" tags.  
Super cute, easy, & cheap! Click {here} to download your own copy of the treat tags! They are editable, so you can personalize them with your own name.

 Today was Field Day!!! 
It was so much fun, but this teacher is T.I.R.E.D!!!


On Wednesday, we had a grade level "Read In" party to reward our kids for working so hard this year. They brought their sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, and most importantly, their favorite books! Such a special literacy treat!!! 

Star Labs ROCK!! 
Talk about inflatable planetarium paradise....The kids LOVED learning more about stars and constellations!
It's a must do for every classroom!
For more StarLab info, check out the following video...

 My class also had a blast working on their End of the Year Memory Book by my sweet friend, Erica Bohrer! Reading precious first grade memories melted my teacher heart! Thanks, Erica, for creating such an amazing keepsake for my kiddos!!

2 more days with my students + 2 post planning days= 4 days left until SUMMER!!!! Woot!! Woot!!
 Happy Friday!!!
