Five For Friday Linky Part

Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her last Linky until August :(

New shoes always make you feel spiffy

Labeling all my computer cables before the custodial staff takes EVERYTHING out of my classroom.  It saves so much time when I have to put everything back together before school starts.  

Wow, the Beautiful Mess App has changed my life!  So much fun and the pictures look 10 time better!

AAAHH decisions about color combos and what position I will be holding next year.  I have taught 4th grade for the last 2 years but I recently submitted an application to be a Literacy Coach...I guess its wait and see time :(  I'm such a planner I hate the unknown.

During the summer I take time to clean up all my files and review fabulous activities that the kids loved during the year.
The Pile It On activity by Farley was a HUGE hit when my little rock stars needed practice with multiplication.  Let me tell you as cute as this activity it is RIGEROUS. Head on over and check it out.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Cute shoes!
    I love the idea of labeling the computer wires - I can imagine it takes a while, but it must make things SO much easier in the fall. Definitely going to *steal* that idea for next year :)

    Happy weekend!

    1. Jessica, the labeling took me five minutes max to label :) Walked next door and did it for my teaching partner as well!

  2. Hi Amanda,
    Thank you for the tip on the insta app, I have been wondering what it was called. Also LOVE your idea for matching up the cords, brilliant. May need to pin it. I just take a pic with my phone and put sticky notes on them but your idea is much better. <3

  3. PS did someone make you that cute bloglovin button and if so can you tell me so I can ask permission to use it as well...adorable!

  4. Pin away :) It was super easy to cut the stickers in half and then stick them on as I dismantled everything. Here is the link to the source of the bloglovin button http://www.commoncoreandsomuchmore.com

  5. You are one smart lady with the computer wires labeling. I'm just about the pack up my class this afternoon and I will use that idea. You just saved me lots of time - thank you!
