Five For Friday!! TGIF Edition

TGIF Baby! I was soooo ready for the weekend! And here it is. I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching again for her Five For Friday linky. Be sure to check out her blog to read some other amazing blogs!

So let's see, what DID I do this week???? Right. Report Cards. Lots of late nights writing and editing reports, BUT now they are done and I can enjoy my weekend.

I've also spent way too much time on  Pinterest planning out my classroom decor for next year.  I pinned a bunch of classrooms that have covered their shelves with fabric and this is something I really want to do next year. Like this popular pin from School Girl Style:

Here are three fabrics I'm considering, leave a comment and let me know which one you like the best:

And I'm still continuing the fitness challenge that Ms. BBZ started on Instagram.  If you want to participate just search for #PADfitness!

Finally, I will be spending the weekend trying to come up with ideas for the end of the year. I think I'm going to do the balloon idea (you know, the one that's all over pinterest where you hang balloons, then when you pop it a fun idea pops out and that is the reward for the day).

What are you doing for the end of the year? Anything PINspiring?


  1. I found your blog on Five for Friday. I enjoyed reading your post and you are doing the samething that I am doing with Pinterest. I am moving building but staying in the same grade level so I have a new room to figure out and decorate. For your fabric's, I really like the first print but I could see all three fitting into your room decor somehow. Maybe the third fabric could be pillow cases or padding for those seat crates that everyone is using. Just throwing ideas out there. I am a new follower. I hope you will come over and visit my second grade blog also. Take Care.

  3. I vote for the third pattern! :0) Just found your blog through the Five for Friday and am a new follower! Best of luck with your classroom decorating project, and enjoy the summer!

  4. I like the second pattern. I could see incorporating birds into your theme because of the pattern. My next choice is the first one. It is a hard decision. lol! I am a second grade teacher also. I am now a follower. Come check my blog out!

    1. Susan, I thought the same thing about the bird pattern. I could totally incorporate birds in with my theme!
