Five for Friday is going on Vaca

I was debating whether or not I wanted to link up with Kacey for Five for Friday this week.

I don't seem to really do anything lately worth sharing because I am busy working all the time! For all you truly on vacation and relaxing this summer I am jealous!

However, when I read that after today, Five for Friday would be taking a month long hiatus and returning in August, I knew I just had to link up one last time. I promise come August I will have much more teacher related things to share each week!

Here's my completely random Five for Friday this week. 


I hit a whopping 600 followers on my blog this week! I was hoping to hit this milestone before July 1st in case GFC goes away and we did it! 

My friend Kelly from First Grade Fairytales also hit 600 followers this week too so we are planning a joint giveaway! Stay tuned for more fun to come!

Have you all read the book Teach Like a Champion? I am obsessed with it even though I am only on Chapter 4! This book is really making me think about how I can be the most effective teacher! The techniques talked about are such little things that might be overlooked but make a world of difference in the classroom! 

If you haven't read this book, you need to ASAP!

Nothing says Summer like the premiere of Big Brother! Are you all hooked on this guilty pleasure show with me? The cast this Summer is crazy and I can tell there is going to be so much drama! Can't wait for Sunday! 


Seeing as I have been so busy with work, I clearly have not had time to organize my teaching resources. 

I now have 443 things I have downloaded from all your blogs and TPT that needs to get organized! I need more time in the day to get it all done! Help!

Now don't go getting too disappointed that Five for Friday won't be back next week! Cara has got you covered with Favorite Pins Friday. It's going to be a blast! See you there!


  1. I'm dying here cuz I missed the premiere of Big did that happen?!?! LOL Love that show. I will have to catch up when it's on again. Enjoy your summer my friend.

  2. I agree that there is going to be some crazy drama on Big Brother this season!

  3. I have a downloads folder that looks like yours. I'm new to the mac and this is one thing I have not been good about. I used to save everything to the right place and now I just dump it all in that folder instead! Congrats on reaching 600 followers!

  4. Yeah, organizing stuff after it downloads is something I have to do within the week otherwise it gets crazy!

  5. Ditto on the downloads! Mine were so bad that my computer started 'yelling' at me. I ended up putting it all on a thumb drive to sort through later. Love Teach Like a Champion! My principal bought a copy for each member of the staff last year. I've got mine all 'tabbed' out with favorite parts to go back to.
