Five for Friday- the P Post

Anyone else ecstatic that the weekend is finally here? Week 2 has officially ended... and it was a rough one. R-O-U-G-H rough. Not because of my kids though thankfully. But in honor of being able to semi breathe for a couple days, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday... with lots of P words!

1. Payton and popcorn...
A couple weeks ago we decided to watch Dumbo with Payton and bring out the air mattress. We lounged, watched the movie, and had popcorn. She had a BLAST. So this past Sat we had another movie night. This time it was Curious George (this child is obsessed with monkeys). She had her monkey all ready and was the cutest little girl ever. She MAY be a tad emotional because at one point it looked like George and the elephant were going to get hurt and, I kid you not, she cried! Cried friends! She was that upset about the monkey being hurt. At two!

2. Pirates
Our first bulletin board of the year is hopes and dreams. And since I have a pirate theme, I wanted a pirate board and activity. And so the kids made cute little pirates (admittedly I didn't measure my shape pieces the best and the clothes MAY have been the wrong size) and wrote their hopes for the year and their dreams for the future inside the treasure chest. They turned out so cute. And...teacher fail, I have yet to take a picture of the completed board.

3. Puzzles
For vocabulary this week, students got to work with their groups and match the vocab word to the definition. I was working with small groups at the time so I told the kids in order to prove to me that they did it and I could "grade" it, they had to take a pic on my ipad. They did really well and for the most part all knew all the words this week on their test! Call me excited!

4. Preview
I am working on a raving review about a product that I am not sure how I could live without now. But I am not ready to share it yet bc I want to do it justice.. but here is a preview of the file. We learned about character traits this week and my kids ROCKED their activities. They used this page that you see above (from THIS amazing set from Nicole all know I adore everything she makes right?! I have this one too but we haven't started on that one yet) to LEARN about character traits and then used a page from Amanda at One Extra Degree's foldables to analyze the main character in our story this week (I didn't take a pic of that...and I left them at school). I was so proud at how they were responding!

5. Purchase? I had a really hard time with a P word for this last one...
It is finally time for the big back to school sale at TpT. I will have my entire store on sale for 20% off and by using the codeBTS13 you will get an additional 10% off (which turns out to be 28% because the 10% is off the marked down price..if you aren't a math person, just don't worry yourself over it because 28% is still a great sale!). I am so READY to Purchase. Are you?

P.S. (bc what good would a P post be without a PS??) Don't forget to leave feedback on ALL of your previous purchases. Leaving feedback gets you TpT credit which you can use towards more purchases!!


  1. Thanks for sharing this! I just wishlisted the foldables! I'm psyched for the sale! :O)
