Sunday 6 June 17

Hi and welcome to this week's edition of "Sunday 6."  This is a post where I share 6 random happenings from my week.  It's also a linky party, meaning you can write your own "Sunday 6" post and link up at the bottom of my post!  I'd love to have you join!

Last week Mr. Wheeler and I went to Florida.  Before we left, I got a pedicure!  It was much needed.  I hadn't had one since fall.  I have a love/hate relationship with them...I love how they look at the end but hate the process.  I am always worried the worker is going to cut me or hurt me.  LOL!

Our trip to Florida was a working vacation.  My parents bought a new house down there and needed help getting moved in.  We painted, mulched, cleaned gutters/the roof, landscaped, shopped for furniture, organized, hung pictures, tore light fixtures down, was an exhausting week!

I was nervous about seeing their new house, because they had their other house for over 15 years and I loved it so much.  However, the new house did not disappoint!  I especially love the aloe plant and PINEAPPLES GROWING IN THE BACK YARD/GARDEN!!!!!!!  Obsessed.

I only got "cleaned up" once while we were down there.  I brought so many cute clothes and accessories, but didn't end up wearing them.  BOO!

We made it to the pool for a total of 3 hours the entire week.  It killed me not to go every day and lay out for hours on end, as that's what we usually do, but we had to get work done!

We were going to go to the beach one day, but there was red tide so.........However, we went in the evening to a different beach and collected shells.  Does anyone else love doing this? 

Looking forward to our next trip down to my parents' that doesn't involve so much work!  Have a great week, friends!

Sunday 6 June 3

Hi and welcome to another "Sunday 6!"  I'm a day late and a dollar short!  At least I made it!  Please feel free to link up a blog post about 6 random events from your week.  They can be school related or personal!  Just use my provided images and link back to my blog with your post.  Have a great day!  *NOTE:  THERE WILL NOT BE A SUNDAY 6 NEXT SUNDAY, JUNE 10, AS I WILL BE TRAVELING.

Last weekend for Memorial Day, Mr. Wheeler and I had a little cookout in our backyard.  It was just the two of us.  We mulched our front and back yards and did some housework, too.  

My last day with students was Tuesday after Memorial Day.  One tradition that I have is to have my kids leave me notes on the whiteboard.  I don't read them until after they've gone.  I always love seeing what the write.  Loved this little girl's sweet message:

Any "Fundations" users out there?  This summer, I'll be working on many supplemental resources to go with the first grade/level 1 program.  The first two things I made (Trick Words Book and Trick Words Word Wall) are already in my shop and are linked below.  Just click the cover to grab either of them.

Every May, I feel like I let my house go to sh** because of the chaos that is the end of the year.  I spent my first day off cleaning like a maniac!  I love our 90 year old original wood floors, but I don't love cleaning them!

Mr. Wheeler and I took our first big bike ride of the season together yesterday!  We went 21 miles.  The wind was brutal, but the heat wasn't too awful, thanks to said wind!  We love riding in the summer!  I see many more rides in our future!

Did you snag this freebie yet?  For those of you still in school, I'm sorry.  But maybe this freebie will cheer you up!  Click the cover below to grab it and hang in there!

Sunday 6 May 27

Happy Sunday and welcome to another edition of "Sunday 6!"  If you'd like to link up with me, please do so at the end of this post.  Just use my included "Sunday 6" images.  Have a great week!
 This past week I taught my kids how to put words into ABC order.  I used Lori's ABC Order Bundle (spring pack) for this.  The kids really caught on quickly!

 I was surprised by a super fun teacher appreciation gift from two of my best friends (whom I met through blogging and TPT)!  Look at this adorable string art sign that Monica (Lil Bits of Mona) made for me!  I loved the hand written notes from her and Squirrels!  So thoughtful.  If you're a parent and have kids in school, a teacher sign would be an amazing end of the year present!

Speaking of end of the year gifts, look what one of my students surprised me with!  The sweet mom follows me on Instagram and knew I loved pineapples.  Such a thoughtful gift bag!  I will miss this little guy for sure!

 I've been slowly preparing my end-of-the-year bags for my kids over the past few weeks.  On Friday, I stayed late at school to fully assemble them.  Many people have asked what I include in the bags, so here's a rundown:

1.  My "Summer to Second Grade" review pack-pages printed off and mini skill books printed off.
2.  A fun pencil from Michael's-These were $5.00 for 24 of them.
3.  A Junie B. Jones book
4.  My "End of Year Bookmarks" customized with each child's name
5.  A __'s a 2nd grader stickers from Creative Teaching Press

Everyone will also get an "I'm on Summer Break" sticker to wear home Tuesday!  These are from A Teachable Teacher.

I shared these certificates on Instagram and many people said they'd like them!  There are 3 options plus color versions for you in the download.  These will be fun to leave on your students' desks on the last day!  Click HERE to get them for FREE.

I'm sharing this again because I thought you might need something for Tuesday about Memorial Day.  Click HERE to grab the mini-book and a few other goodies to use with it in class.


PS: Let's add a #7 this week:
