Five for Friday!

I don't know if I've told you all, but I really love this linky!  It's such a fun way to recap the week and I love that even if I miss a week, I can easily pop back in the next.  Plus, I really enjoy taking a peek inside all your classrooms and seeing what you've been up to!  You ALL are so creative!  So here is a shout out to Kacey of Doodle Bugs Teaching.  Thank you for continuing to host this linky each week.  You rock!

And to get on with it...

The hubs and just got back from what I think,we'd both agree, was one of our MOST favorite trips.  Iceland!  Seriously it is so beautiful.  Waterfalls, ponies, the blue lagoon... what more could you ask for?

Mother's Day is next weekend.  NEXT WEEKEND!!!!  Are your kiddos gifts for mom all planned, prepped, and ready to go?  Here's a Mother's Day Gift/Book that I finished just in time and it could easily be completed in a day or two.

You know how I know it's spring?  The BUGS!  Yep, this week I've seen tons of little critters crawling and flying about.  And although I don't find them particularly attracting, kindergartners generally do.  I love to put out fun spring write the room activities and I know this is one I'd definitely be using around this time of year.  Do you have kids who collect bugs and bring them in to share? 

Look at that!  That's my product in the sponsored spot.  I was so excited when I received the newsletter e-mail and saw my Oviparous Animals product listed.  Literally I was jumping for joy.  

And finally, during my Pinterest browsing this week I came across this activity and I just had to share.  So Simple.  So Fun. Directions for this end of year keepsake can be found here: The Educators' Spin on It

  4. Hey Marie,
