Five For Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs to share my Five for Friday.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who stopped by my TpT store for the back to school sale! I  hope that you love all of your goodies and consider following my store! :) 

 One of the goodies I scooped up during the sale was Doodle Bugs Back to School Clip Cards. I can't wait to have my students use these for Daily 5. 

 Last Friday I shared that I was at the Ohio State Fair.
It was an absolute blast!!!!
I rode THIS... my kiddos and I and happened to ride with a dad and his son. All 4 of them had a hoot laughing {even to the point of tears!} at me literally clinging to the center bar the entire time! Scott and Madilynn are total thrill seekers {like their dad} and ride anything and everything with a smile. 

Seriously, they are nuts!

Go make someone smile. :)

I am SUPER EXCITED about our weekend plans. 
I am taking my Brownie troop on a fun Girl Scout camping weekend. Not in love with bugs, snakes, or spiders, but.... I do LOVE spending time singing, dancing, crafting, swimming, and laughing with this girl! 

WISH ME {and my 6 brownie scouts} LUCK!!!!

Doodles and Drawings

I absolutely love starting off the year in writer's workshop by teaching drawing. 

Last year I created a Doodles and Drawings book to help capture student learning and growth.

 While it accomplished things that I wanted - to ensure each student attempted a skill that was modeled in the mini-lesson and to have an organized collection of drawings from our first unit. BUT... it also accomplished a lot more...
students were SUPER proud and excited about their drawings - eagerly asking what they'd learn about next to add to their Doodles and Drawing book. Several students also made extra doodle and drawing books to use during free choice! 

Parents {absolutely adored} these collections of doodles and said they'd would treasure them for years to come! :)
