Five For Friday!

Linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching this week for the ever so fun Five for Friday!!! It is crazy that we are already back to Friday. I don't even want to look at the calendar because next thing you know, school starts!!!

This week has been full of fun and productivity (which I am NOT always good at doing!!!) It must be the CONSTANT cloudy/rainy weather that has kept me away from the outdoors and has forced me to work. Maybe it is a blessing in disguise?? Yeah...we will go with that!!

Love me a holiday weekend!! I spent my Fourth of July laying out by the pool and finally catching some rays after what seems like a year of clouds and rain! It was such a relaxing day. I ended the holiday watching the fireworks on our riverfront with some of my college friends. I can't remember the last time I just went and watched them. You can count on me being there next year because boy oh boy, they were beautiful!!!

I got all of my centers and units planned out, printed, and laminated!! All that is left for me to do is organize them in tubs according to month! It feels like such a relief to be heading into this year already feeling on top of things. I know that there will be things I am unprepared for (as always!) but I can at least say I feel very confident about this year!!

I got some GREAT bargains at Michaels on my favorite storage pieces! I love when I see that pretty 40% off sign next to the recollections storage ;) I also picked up a few fun things for my classroom that I will be able to use in centers!

I started back on my 21 Day Fix. I have gotten out of my healthy eating habits and decided it was time to get a handle on my nutrition before school starts. It also helps that the workouts are short and sweet! The best part of 21 Day Fix is that I get all the veggies and proteins that I usually miss because I eat whatever is around. Time to get back on track!!

I joined the TECHY world of teaching!!! This week I have joined Periscope, twitter, and have been all over Instagram making connections, learning new things, and pretending I am in Vegas!!!! (shoutout to Angie from Lucky Little Learners and Ashley from Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd for doing periscope throughout their time!!) I absolutely love that all of these social media platforms allow SO much interaction between amazing teachers. If you haven't gotten into Periscope, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!! It is live feed from the people you follow that introduces you to new topics, can serve as a Q & A, and allows you to experience things you are not present for! Plus you get to comment. IT. IS. AMAZING!!! 

Follow me on instagram and Periscope to connect and share awesome ideas!!

  1. Hi Molly, I'm so glad you had a great holiday weekend! Wow, you have been productive, you go girl! You are inspiring me to start to think about my classroom and my decorations for the year. I am loving Periscope! Such a fun way to feel connected with all the fun. Ashley and Angie are the best! Have a great weekend! :)

  2. Molly I am so proud of you for organizing all your units and centers! Your school year will run so smoothly!! I am also loving all the connections we are making through social media! It is a wonderful feeling to connect with other teachers who share your passion for teaching! Periscope is so much fun!!!! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Go, you!! Having all your centers and units laminated and printed. Wow. I switched grade levels so I'm hoping to reuse some of the ones I have organized from last year. :)

  4. Would it be wrong to ask you to organize all my centers since you're on a roll?!? Haha Total Superwoman status! Your productive week has inspired me to work on binding all of my worksheets in binders and organizing them. :) I need to jump in this Periscope train- I have so many friends using it and I just need to take the jump. I'll have to find you on there when I join!
