Five for Friday: Getting Closer By The Minute!

Happy Friday ya'll! It has been an interesting week over here in Houston! I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching again for yet another Five for Friday! Let's get started!

This past week I did my first ever giveaway! I reached a mini milestone on my instagram account and I did a giveaway for my sight word sticker book! I am happy to announce the winner is Jennifer Kelly! I will e-mail you:) This was so much fun, I look forward to doing my next giveaway on my next mini milestone! 

I started reading The Positive Dog this week by Jon Gordon. I must say that it was quite inspiring just to read the phycological effects of negativity on your brain and body. I think this was just the thing I needed to remind myself to stay positive no matter what. Especially right before the kiddies come back!

This year will definitely be different because as of yesterday we received word that not only are we receiving a new assistant principal, but our principal is leaving as well. I'm reassured because I know a few people who have worked with our incoming principal and they loved her. That's good news for us! I am looking forward to this year, but for now, I am just wanting to get into my room and start the process! 
I made a trip to the Post Office this past week to grab a few boxes! I'm making something with them for the classroom that is turning out quite cute!I am very excited about it and it will be ready just in time for Monday Made it! Stay tuned to see what it is:)
I'm also working on a writing center that should be ready later today. I will post more about it when it is finished! This will be my biggest TpT Bundle ever! Very exciting! 

Question: What types of folders and journals do you implement into your classrooms? Ex: poetry journal, writing journal, spelling folder, do/done folder, portfolio, etc. I am interested to hear your thoughts, ideas, and implementations! Please share:)

Now back to the linky! Have a great weekend!
