Five For Friday {Linky Party...May 31st}


I cannot believe it....It's my first Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching and I am super excited to link up and share some of my Friday Favorites!
Here are my five:
Working on plans for our beach vacation in Late July/Early August...searching for the perfect condo has been consuming TOO much of my time! 
The weather outside is looking stormy!!!  I do LOVE me some storms but not when they are coupled with the threat of tornadoes, yet again.  Praying for a safe night across the Ozarks!
So my bestie, Erica McKimmey, and I are walking it up almost everyday.  We are so {OBSESSED} with our new theme: {TRANSFORMATION}... and we are determined to make strides to get SKINNY over summer break!  Here's a cheer for getting into shape...and a BIG BOO for having to diet over the summer!  Yuck! 
My obsession, right now, is new clipart...I am keeping Scrappin' Doodles in business, to say the least.  I am loading up on beach themed clip art, probably because I am dreaming about my above vacation and because the ideas are flowing for my new Beach Themed Pack full of Summer Resources!  Now I need to kick it into high gear and get to work!!!
My newest Teacher's Pay Teachers/Teacher's Notebook addition:
Father's Day {A Mini Craft Unit}
I directly relates to my Mother's Day Unit and after many requests to make a Father's Day Unit...I finally finished it off last night!  I am thrilled to share it with you all.
You can get it on Teacher's Pay Teacher's {HERE} and Teacher's Notebook {HERE}!!
That sheds a little bit of life on my Friday and now I am off for a little family game time!!!

A Little Science Learning {Molecule Stamping}

I hope everyone is having a great Teacher Appreciation Week!  My kids seem to get wilder as the days grow closer to summer vacation!  I am trying my best to keep the natives from getting restless but I find myself counting the days, too (ONLY 8 1/2 to go!!!) 
This week my buddy teacher, Erica McKimmey and I are teamed up again for the completion of our 6 week science unit!  She was doing this awesome lesson on molecules this week and I just had to share her great picture! 
Don't forget to stop by and visit me on Instagram later as will be posting some new pictures for our PBIS Reading Award Beach Day!

Have a great rest of the week and I will see you all on Instagram!
