End of the Year Book

The end is near!  Can you believe it?!
I made this End of the Year booklet that's a perfect keepsake for your students to complete during the last week of school.
 
I included a version for Kindergarten, as well as two separate versions for 1st and 2nd grade.  (One very similar to the Kindergarten version, and one with more space to allow your students to do more writing.)

Summer Activity Calendar {FREEBIE}

The school year is almost over.  This is the time of year when I start to panic.  Did I teach them everything I needed to teach?  Are they ready for 2nd grade?  What if they forget everything over the summer?  Add in all of the regular end of the year chaos, and it leads to a lot of sleepless nights ;)
A couple of years ago, I made this summer activity calendar to send home with my students.  It has a very quick activity for each day of summer break.  I wanted to keep those brains engaged, but still let them be able to enjoy the pure freedom of a childhood summer!

These calendars are perfect for parents to hang on the refrigerator or keep in the car. (Car rides always seem to be the perfect place to sneak in some academic skills.  Maybe it's because the kids are buckled in, and can't go anywhere.  Whatever works right?)

A Stitch Fix Treat for Teachers

I hope all of you had a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Week.  Just know that you are ALL appreciated!
As one last treat for Teachers Appreciation Week, I'm joining some of my blogging friends to bring you a HUGE Stitch Fix Giveaway!
 
I just received my 3rd fix this week, and I still love it!  It's just so much fun to get a package in the mail and be able to try on clothes at home.  With a baby and two super busy daughters, it is almost impossible to get out and shop.
It was a hot-mess kind of a week (crying, cranky baby, plus a husband with a broken arm and a concussion), so I have misplaced my slip with the "official" names of these items.  I don't have the names and brands of the items, but I do have pictures.
 
1. High Waisted Black Pants
 
The fit on these wasn't too bad.  They were maybe a little bit long, and kind of bunched at the bottom.  I really didn't mind these, but they were more expensive than I was willing to pay, plus it's almost summer.  I do not need any more black pants right now.
 
2.  Teal Hi-Lo Shirt
I LOVE this shirt.  It is so comfortable!  The material is super soft!  I am definitely one that dresses for comfort the majority of the time, so I liked that I could dress this up or make it more casual.
 
3. Spoon Necklace 
This necklace was cute.  It did look like little spoons hanging from the chain ;)
 
4. Blue Cross Front Dress
 This is my favorite Stitch Fix item so far!  I LOVE that it is SO comfortable, yet still flattering.  Plus, I'm a sucker for blue!
 
5.  Coral Bomber Jacket
Ummmm.....just no!
 
So...final decision time.
Black Pants- Return
Teal Hi-Low Shirt - Keep
Spoon Necklace- Return
Blue Dress - Keep
 Coral Bomber Jacket - Return

Head on over to Stitch Fix and fill out your Style Profile.  Each fix will cost you a $20 styling fee, but if you choose to purchase an item from your fix, your styling fee is deducted from the cost of your clothes.  If you purchase all 5 items, you get them all at 25% off.  Just click HERE to use my referral code.

Five for Friday

I'm so hit and miss with linking up for Five for Friday.  Probably because my days and weeks just kind of run together being on maternity leave.  Definitely not a bad thing!  If it wasn't for my girls and their daily activities that keep us running all over town, I would probably have no idea what day it even was most of the time.
So here are 5 things about my week.
 
1.  My little guy is 5 months old...and SO.MUCH.FUN!  I took this video of him the other day laughing at his sister.  She was making monster sounds at him.  I think I have watched it a hundred times, and it always makes me smile!

2.  I saw this on Instagram the other night, and reposted it on my account.  How true is this!
 

 
3. I received some paper products from Blair Turner Paper last week and I AM IN LOVE!
I can't pick a favorite product, but how gorgeous is this weekly desk calendar!  If this doesn't help me get organized, nothing will!
 
4.  I found this sign at Hobby Lobby last week.
 
This is THE BEST reminder for not only my house, but my classroom.  I wanted to buy it to put it in the hall outside of my kid's rooms, but the gray didn't match the color scheme of the other things in the hall.  So, I made my own printable that I will just frame instead.
 
 
5. I shared this on my Instagram, but I found these lanyards at Walmart that I thought would be perfect for Teachers Appreciation Week.
They had a ton to choose from, but these were the ones that I ended up buying.
 
Head on over to check out everyone else's Five for Friday.
