5 for Friday 8.21.15

Hi, friends!  I'm back for another 5 for Friday.  Thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting!  This week was my first full week back to work {with kids}.  It hasn't been too terribly exhausting, but I have been going to bed at 9pm every night!

We may or may not have put Ticonderoga pencils on our supply list this year....I can not describe how happy I am about this!!!  It was a great debate and I am glad we did it!  The smooth writing. The easy-to-erase lead.  Those other pencils just aren't the same; they don't sharpen and the erasers suck. 'Nuff said.  Let's take a moment to enjoy ALL THAT IS TICONDEROGA, shall we?

We had our annual bus safety practice.  After, we made a little bus craft from Mrs. Cupcake {love her crafts!} and did some writing from my 'Back to School Printables' pack.

We have done a little Math each day...very simple activities like watching song videos {Jack Hartman, Harry Kindergarten, etc...} and playing some basic games.  We played some games from my 'Math Games on the Fly' pack and the kids had a blast!  I love that I can easily differentiate to help my strugglers if I need to.

I made a run to Ulta.  Dang that place is dangerous!  Gets me every time.  I do always have a coupon and this time, I had $3.00 in rewards to spend so it made the damage a little easier to swallow!  I am LOVING the coconut balm.  It is so moisturizing.  I put it on my legs and feet before bed.  It smells amazing, too!  I am NOT loving the Sun Bum chap stick.  I am obsessed with the sunscreen but the chap stick tastes like sunscreen and goes on really thick and greasy.   

I recently cashed in more of my Ibotta money for gift cards!  I love Ibotta.  If you follow me on Facebook, you've prob. seen me post about it.  It's a free app that gives you rebates on groceries.  It's very easy to use.  Once you get $10 in rebates redeemed, you can cash the money out for gift cards.  I get all of my Starbucks coffee/tea from Ibotta gift cards.  To sign up, click the image below!!  We work together to earn rebates.  You won't regret it!!

Happy Weekend!!

Ulta is a dangerous, dangerous place! Never seem to leave with just the item I intended to buy.
