Five for Friday!

Another Friday is here and that means it's time to link up with Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching.  Be sure to check her blog for more fun Five-for Friday posts!

Well, this week was jam packed with creating, updating, and fixing!

 I started the week off finishing up some editable sight word activities and I'm in love!  I included student direction pages for each of the 10 activities so that they could easily be placed in center tubs.  For the activities, I basically created templates so that it'd be easy to edit and change up the sight words, or any words really, whenever you wanted.  The reason I did this is because sometimes I find great sight word activities but I haven't yet taught those exact sight words, or maybe I'm using the Fry word list and the activity is for Dolch, or the activity might be themed but my class is working past these words or... the list goes on.  Anyway these activities can easily be edited over and over again and can even be used to help differentiate activities for students!  Change the words to meet individual student or group needs.

This week we had a little power dilemma!  A handyman came to replace a broken light switch in our kitchen on Tuesday and he did, but then a few hours after he left all our sockets stopped working.  Yes, all of them!  It turns out he ran some type of electrical test that may have tripped a fuse and long story short our power was out for about 18 hours.  This was no fun because our fridge got pretty warm and I no longer trusted the milk, eggs, and meat so I had to throw them out.  Thankfully it's fixed now but we did have to do an additional shop this week.  Blah!  I'm not the biggest fan of grocery shopping.

Look what my mom sent me in the post!  Aren't they adorable?  They make me smile.  They remind me of scarecrows and I love scarecrows.

Speaking of scarecrows, I started to put together my scarecrow unit and I am already thinking that it might just be my favorite unit yet!  Do you have any favorite units?  This unit will include crafts, no prep printables, centers, story follow up activities,anchor chart pieces, and more!
 Here's a a small peek at what it's looking like:

Halloween is just around the corner.  I mean literally it's next Friday.  Do you give your kiddos any special halloween treats?  I'm not a huge fan of adding to the sugar on this particular day so I like to give out something "non candy."  Here's a quick idea I whipped up!  Pick up some inexpensive glow bracelets or necklaces and attach a cute tag that reads"Stay bright this Halloween Night."  Simple, cute, and fun.  Click on the picture to download my tags for FREE.  Happy almost Halloween!

And lastly I just have to post this again in case you didn't know.  I am having a sale!  Yes, right now.  I was so excited that I finally set up my Lattes and Lunchrooms FB page that I decided to have a 15% off sale for the next 2 days.  Be sure to check it out and save :) 

Have a Fantastic Weekend.


  1. Thank you! Glad you are enjoying it. Just found you on bloglovin' as well! Have a great weekend!

  2. Congrats on getting your fb page started, I headed over and liked your page. Your scarecrow unit looks like it is going to be great. I have had your Halloween activities on my wish list and meant to get it earlier this week to prep but the week got away from me. My busy week turned into a win for me with your sale. Thanks!

    Luv My Kinders

    1. Thanks! And if you do buy the Halloween product I'd love to know what ya think of it. I just added a template for the pumpkin as well to give teachers a choice on how they'd like to make it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. :)
