First Five for Friday of the School Year

I have linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday. I love doing this and reading what all of you have chosen for your Five for Friday!

#1 A little reflecting...
The first week of school is over! I still forget how exhausting it can be. I have to explain everything to the little kiddos and usually multiple times. It is a lot of routine building and classroom management but if you put in the time at the beginning of the year it is worth it. Overall we are off to a very good start!

#2 Tired, so Tired!

#3 Friends
 When things are stressing me  out or I just need something low key, I put on an episode of Friends. Right now I am watching the episode when Chandler and Ross go to Vermont and Ross gets crazy with maple candy. This show just cracks me up! I also love the blooper reels. This one is great, especiallly around 1:37 when Lisa Kudrow and Matt Leblanc can't stop laughing!

#4 Clutter Free Classroom
Have you seen her blog? She has some terrific ideas! One of the most popular posts and products she has is a great guide to getting super organized in your classroom! I also like and bought her product to help your class clean up and have fun at the end of the day which you can check out here:

#5 Someone (and not me) did not want to get up on the first day of school. Here he is after I have gotten all dressed and ready to take him outside:

Have a restful weekend everyone!


  1. I can definitely relate to how tired you are at the beginning of the school year! I'm certainly enjoying my leisurely Saturday of Blog Hopping! I suspect a little Friends would be perfect for a lazy afternoon like this!

    1. Oh Sally ! I am so glad you commented! I was looking around on Tpt and found out that you and I live in the same state! I do teach in MA though, but I was psyched to see you, Ladybug Designs and a few others!
