Five For Friday

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

I just posted, in my TPT store, the first two parts of my Wild About... games, featuring these precious zoo animals.

I am *SO* excited to use these next year. I love the QR code for checking answers!
This contains two digit by one digit multiplication task cards. 

Right now I'm working on Wild About...Greater than/Less than games. 
Here's what I have so far!

I love listing products as free for the first 12-24 hours, so if you want a chance to grab this for free, follow my TPT store! 

I got an Instagram! I mean, I've had one for forever, but I made one for my blog and TPT store. It has been really depressing exciting to see everyone's Vegas pictures! I love how quickly I can share ideas on Instagram. No offense blogger, it's just so easy!

Oh get me every time. I went for toilet paper and soap and walked about with $50 of classroom "essentials." I'm sure I'm preachin' to the choir! (How could I say no to $3 outdoor pillows?! Obviously I couldn't!)  

Hello beach balls! I've already started making these fun inflatables into valuable classroom tools! Come back for Monday Made It to see how I'm going to use them in my classroom!

(My Five for Friday is really a Four for Friday, but it's summer, so who's counting?!) 


  1. I can't wait to see how you're transforming beach balls... As a beach lover, I'll have to check back in on Monday! As for the Target problem, I have it too... I impulse bought a $4 clearance gnome for my front garden. I think they are marketing geniuses! Between my Cartwheel App and all the totally cute things they have... I can never get out of there completely on budget! I feel ya!

    {BTW, love those pillows!}
    Happy Friday,

  2. $3.00 pillows?!?! Awesome! Yes, Target is dangerous! :)

  3. Just found your blog! I'm excited to follow you as I am going to teach 3rd grade for the first time this year!


    1. Thank you! That makes me feel great! I absolutely LOVE third grade!

  4. Target got me this week too - oops! I need to buy some beach balls. There are so many great ways to use them! Love your blog.
