Five for Friday & a SALE

Friday already??  Where did my spring break go?  I keep procrastinating and have decided I am going to do lesson plans tonight.  A bit ahead of schedule as it is not even Sunday night yet!

I am linking up with Kasey at Doodle Bugs Teaching with Five for Friday tonight with a little of this and a little of that:)

One- On Tuesday, I had a girls day out with my cousins and aunt visiting from Rhode Island.  We had lunch at the Tea Room in town which was fabulous.  It was such a nice treat for me being that I have 2 boys, it is not a restaurant we frequent!

Two- On Wednesday, we took a road trip to St. Augustine for the day.  At lunch, the boys were being sweet with each other, so I had to snap a QUICK picture as the moment wasn't sure to last too long!  I also found an adorable sign:)

Three-I FINALLY pulled out Easter decorations. This move has really thrown me for a loop!

4- I made a little game to for the word work center called Aren't We Cute? Long u Silent e.  You can check it out HERE.  I will be giving 3 away to the first 3 to leave a comment with their email address!

5. I am having a little sale in my TpT store  including my new unit, Aren't We Cute? A big thanks to  The Creative Chalkboard  for the adorable graphic.  Now its time to help everyone do some spring cleaning to clear out our carts:) 


So glad the weather man is calling for 80's tomorrow.  Hope to FINALLY get some sun at the pool on my last day of spring break.

  5. I am so jealous that it's going to be in the 80's there. I would be happy for the 50's! :)

  6. I want a flip flop day!!! I really would settle for a no-coat day at this point.

    I love your little piggy center. Long u is tricky for my firsties every year.

    I found you through the linky.

    You Might Be a First Grader...

  7. St. Augustine is one of my favorite places. The sign is SO funny. In Oregon, it made it to 70 degrees today and everyone is out in swimsuits and shorts!
