Five for Friday!

This is my first time linking up for Five for Friday and I wish I had more interesting things to share for the week, but here goes...

On Sunday, my fiancé and I went to the Garden States Outdoor Sports Show. I love spending time with my future hubby although all the fishing gadgets and hunting stuff aren't quite my thing. My favorite part was seeing these beautiful animals {don't be alarmed, there were signs saying these animals are not often caged}! 

My class has been working with ten frames for the past couple of weeks. Here is the "display" I started with this cute and effective Name in a Ten Frame activity. Thank you Sam from Fun with Firsties! Although I teach pre-k, I was able to complete the activity with my class by reading them the words and writing letters, words, or numbers in yellow marker for my students who were not able to form them. They were able to independently count how many letters in their name and how many more (how many are empty) they needed to make ten.

This week we covered the letter Rr. Although there are many Rr recognition, formation, and phonics activities we complete, my students absolutely loved making these "R is for rocket" watches that I recently created. 

I was born and raised a Steelers fan and one of my students got me this thermos for Christmas! I use it everyday because it's not only cute but it actually keeps my coffee hot unlike many others I have purchased in the past! It's helped me get through the's the little things that matter in life ;)

As a new seller on TpT, My MLK Mini Pack has sold the most... hold your britches by most I mean 6... but yes, it is my top seller thus far! But I am proud that within a month I have been able to see the benefits of selling work that I have always created, but never had the resource to share with others... until I discovered TpT. This week my students will be completing many of these activities from this pack and other activities that I have had in my filing cabinet. 

I'd love to hear about your week... link up with Doodle Bugs to share with others!


  1. Hey Jacqueline!
    Thanks for your sweet comment on our blog!! I can't wait to see what Megan comes up for you! It's soooooo exciting, isn't it?!?
    PS- did you know you are a no-reply blogger? That means I can't reply to you by email when you comment. It just helps getting a relationship going when you can email back and forth. Here's a post to tell you how to fix it in case you don't know.

  2. Hi Amanda,
    Thank you! I can't wait for it either! :) I had no clue that I was a no-reply blogger! I followed Lori's tutorial from Teaching with Love and Laughter, although the tutorial is somewhat different from my blogger account format... I believe because I updated to google+ recently. Would there be any way for you to tell me if I am still a no-reply blogger?! You are the best for even pointing this out to me! I would have never known!!
