Five for Friday: June 14th

What a week! Linking up with Doodle Bugs! Here's a freebie and a run down of how busy my week has been. 

1. I worked for FSU writing common core lesson plans for C-Palms. You can link to C-Palms at the right. That job required serious brain sweat! But, boy oh boy, did I learn a lot. I'll be busy working all weekend changing a few of my units. 

2. Took the carpets out of our living room. No pics yet! I'm sure nobody wants to see this! I think I'll just post a pic of the finished product. 

3. Because I'm going to third grade this year our first story is First Day Jitters. Which my second graders will already be familiar with because I read it to them at the beginning of second grade. So could you call it Close Reading if you revisit a text over years/grade levels? Hmmmmm! 

Well just for today, Friday the 14th, I'd like to give it away for free. All I ask is that you Pin It on Pinterest from TPT or Facebook It from TPT. If you're really happy it would be great to get some Blog Bragging Love! That would mean the world to me! 

*** In the comment section be the first to say "I want the First Day Jitters Pack." You can either put your email in with your comment so I can get it to you or you can email me at if you're uncomfortable posting your email on the internet. 

4. Talked with an old friend! It's so comforting to know that you can go ages without talking to someone and then pick up right where you left off. 

5. Chilled at the beach! I loveeeee SUMMER!!! My little jitterbugs gave Mr. Sandman a crack in the back. :) 


  1. Found your blog through Kacey's linky, and I want your first day jitters pack! It is so cute, and I love your sandman! Good luck moving up to third!

  2. I want the First Day Jitters Pack! I have the book! Here is my pin:

  3. I would like a copy of your First Day Jitters packet. Thanks ...

    I'm going to try to pin it but I will admit that even though I have a Pinterest account, I still haven't figured out how to pin.

  4. We are just starting with Common core this next year. I have a lot to learn. I feel like I might be a little ahead because of reading teacher blogs. I know I'm going to have to re-vamp a lot of my activities. I take it you are moving up with your class. I did that a couple of years ago and it was a wonderful experience!

    I'm Not Your Grandpa, I'm Your Teacher
