Five for Friday!!

I am excited to do my FIRST Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Another year down:)  I can't believe I am finishing my 13th year of teaching!  Where did time go?  Before too long I will be the mother of a 13 year old.  How did that happen?

Books!  Books! and more Books!
At school this week we had a buy one get one free book sale.  I have a major love for books and I am a total sucker for a sale!  I got some great deals and added to my nonfiction collection.  I also got Pete the Cat goes to the Beach in the mail from Amazon.  I {heart} Pete the Cat!

I was excited to donate to the Oklahoma Relief fund on Teacher's Notebook and I also plan on donating on Teacher Pay Teachers.  My heart breaks for the community am so thankful to have an opportunity to do my little part to help.

 I posted my first PHONICS FRIDAY.  My goal when I started my blog was to share my phonics knowledge and creations with other teachers.  I have been running on the treadmill of life and haven't gotten around to it.  I hope to post every Friday and also do phonics posts to meet specific teacher requests.

I am excited to announce that I have joined the collaborative blog Teaching Blog Round Up!  I am so thankful for the opportunity to join other teachers in sharing ideas with the blogging community.  I am pumped to do my first post next week!

I love reading Five for Fridays!  I am happy to finally have gotten the courage to finally post one:)  I can't wait to read your five highlights of the week!!
