Five for Friday 9.23.16

We made it!  Another week down!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another Five for Friday!  *{I swear I had the best of intentions with blogging this week, just didn't happen.  I am hoping to force myself to sit down and write a few posts this weekend.  I have lots of pictures but have had no energy!}

I got a diffuser for my classroom...I thought it would help keep the room smelling fresh!  I just tried it at home last night {or so I thought--apparently I just had the nite-lite portion on!  No wonder I couldn't smell anything!}.  I'll try it again this weekend and then take it to school next week.  This one is from Amazon and you can get it by clicking the third picture below.


When I was at Target the other day, I spotted these and had to do a double-take.  Right back to 1990. When I wore these.  The 90's trend is coming back and I am NOT A FAN!  Been there, done that! Who's with me?!

Centers were fun this week!  *The kids esp. loved the stamping and fishing centers!

I always make one center a review of the previous week's Phonics skill...we've been working on short vowels so I threw in this simple game.

The Desk Fairy visits us once a week and leaves a treat for tidy desks!  This is something I do weekly the first few months of school to ensure that kids learn to keep their desks organized!  These cards were a freebie in my monthly newsletter this month.  Did you get them?  If you aren't signed up, be sure to sign up via email at the top of my blog!  

I love Dr. Jean.  Still.  After 13 years!  A few years ago, I bought her Lap Book & CD Set.  I use them just about every morning during Morning Meeting!  We sing a song/read a book together with the CD.  It's so much fun!  Our favorites are "5 Little Monkeys" and "Birdies."  Get your own set by clicking below.  You and your kids will LOVE IT!  


Have a fabulous weekend!

I'm sure I had a pair of those shoes! I love the theory that says 'If you were old enough to wear it the first time it was fashionable you are too old for the second time!" :)

I despise 90s fashion! I need to a cubby fairy to come visit my classroom. :)

I hate the 90s trend! It's way too soon! Have you seen the black chokers people are wearing? Yuck! :P
