Daily 5

Hi, friends! I just finished reading the Daily 5. I am on the fence with this one. Before I start reading CAFE, I want to pose the question out there. Is it possible to combine Daily 5 with Treasures? Also, what if I don't have the technology to do one of the main components of the program, Listening to Reading. What are your experiences with Daily 5? Pros and Cons? With still learning the Common Core, and implementing a few other things this year, would it be too much to try out Daily 5, also?

I am becoming obsessed, y'all! I love creating my own products, posting them, and hearing that little *cha-ching* sound come through my TeachersPayTeachers App! SO FUN! I am so thankful for all the support I have been receiving as well. Thanks guys!

Yesterday and today I worked on these cute little buggers. I made bee themed calendar headings for the fall. I am getting pretty excited about doing bees this year. It's going to be so so cute! You can find them in my TPT store.

Michael's for the Classroom!

Alright, everyone! Look at what I found today! I was trying to go to Joann's Crafts to pick up some fabric, but somehow ended up at Michael's Arts and Crafts. It was pretty funny because I walked in circles looking for the fabric, and then suddenly I realized I was not in the store I thought I was in. Pretty bad, I know! I hadn't had my cup of Joe yet, okay? Anyway, I obviously did not get any fabric, but what I did find were these pretty babies! Chevron everything! They were screaming "buy me, buy me!" And so I listened, of course! I think Chevron, bees, and flowers will look great together for my theme next year, don't you? That's the first reason why I didn't feel so bad splurging, but the second reason I didn't feel bad was because they had a large, bright orange sign hanging above them that said 60% off. WHAT!? Go get you some chevron, people!

It's summer, and that makes me happy. It does! I was so sad when the year was coming to an end, and might I mention bawling on the last day. With out a doubt, I had the best class this year. The parents were amazing, too! (They were the ones that turned on the tears when we all said goodbye) Anyway, I am beginning to really enjoy waking up later than 4:30 AM and spending time with some of my hobbies. Thanks to @meetmissparker, I have learned so much about blogging and selling my own products on TPT, which has been a goal of mine since 2011!! Poor Kayla has been staying up past midnight these last few days because she has been getting late night texts with all my questions. Thank you, doll! Speaking of TPT, someone bought one of my products this AM!! WOOOHOO! On the way to paying off my new JEEP!
