Five for Friday

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! Yay!

Here's what's been going on in my neck of the woods...

#1-The UGLY foot stool....

My sweet momma gave me this foot stool. I want to paint it and cover the tattered leather with some bright funky fabric. Maybe I can get this done on Monday...
My student of the week will sit here all week instead of sitting criss-cross on the carpet :) 

#2-Notes, Notes, Notes 

These are some notes I took at CAMT. I have to present some fun Math strategies to the WHOLE school-instead of just k-1 teachers like I was told before...YIKES! 
Wish me luck y'all! 

#3-Photo of my NOT setup classroom

I've been checking out other teacher's blogs and Instagram and all I can think about is this... 

I can't get in to set up my classroom until the 12th! 
I'm seeing so much creativity and I want to join in! 

#4-My teacher toolbox

I figured I could get my teacher toolbox done instead, but. . .

so I headed out to Lowe's for an exchange, but wound up at Wal-Mart 
instead and this happened! 

#5-Retail therapy!

I really couldn't help myself! The black poly folders are going to be my firsties take home folders. I'm going to use Lori's (from Teaching with Love and Laughter) Take Home Clip Chart Calendars to help parents keep track of their child's behavior and other important dates. They're perfect and they're FREE! She also has an editable version if you want to modify it. For yours click here!

So what's your 5 for Friday? 
Head over to Doodlebug's Teaching and link up!
