Five for Friday: Flash Freebie Frenzy

My link up today is to give away 3 of my latest creations. That's right! An ultimate FLASH FREEBIE FRENZY. All because I didn't do much this week but get ready for next year. Visit the Doodle Bugs Teaching site to see what other teachers are linking up. 
There are countless FANTABULOUS ideas there. 
1. I worked crazy hard this week adding finishing touches here and there to things for next year

I've been super motivated! You see Wednesday was my last day of school and I found out that I'll be writing lesson plans to populate the State of Florida Website called C-Palms. I start next week so I couldn't miss a beat trying to crunch all this in. I'm still teaching next year but in Third. I'm excited about my summer opportunity!

2. My daughter started a little business selling cheer bows because she made the JV Cheer Squad at the high school she will be going to. News spread about it being an official little thing because she put it up on Etsy with her dad. Needless to say she's been selling one here, one there, and yesterday we got word that she has her first BIG order for a squad at a local high school. She first started selling bows as a way of paying her Cheer Fee because it's over $1000 and that's kind of a lot of money when your parents are both teachers whose pay has been reduced year after year. I did my best to raise funds through donations. A LOT of friends and family really stepped up. We still owe some and it's due by Monday. So it looks like she'll be paying me back. :) 

A family photo taken at the last magic home game. From the left you see my hubby, myself, my senior boy behind me, my freshman girl, and my 4th grader. There's also the arm of our hilarious teenage neighbor. 

3. On Monday I finished up my 2nd Grade Common Core summer packet just in time to print for summer. Want it???

4. I finished up my 3rd Grade Close Reading Toolkit. It's over 100 Pages and completely aligned to 3rd Grade Common Core ELA Literature and Informational Text Standards. In includes 3 Graphic Organizer/ Reading Response Sheets for each standard, small group lesson plans, anchor charts, text dependent question cards and so much more!

5. Today I pulled activities from my 2nd grade summer pack and MEGA ADDED to it. I ended up creating a very extensive 2nd Grade Math Assessment Unit that addresses EVERY 2nd Grade Standard. This unit is a real gem because I used it to prep for my new opportunity next week with the C-Palms people. Needless to say--- EVERYTHING is covered! I truly don't think I left out anything.
