Five for Friday

{A little Five for Friday catch up}

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs to share five random things from my week... ok... two weeks because I was too dang exhausted to link up last week. Ha! 

1. My prayers and thoughts are with those in Oklahoma. May He bring you the strength that you need to overcome this terrible tragedy.

2. It's SUMMER!! 

Can I get an amen!

3. We spent the last week and a half enjoying some theme day celebrations. We had a Lazy Day at the Beach Day, Cool Camp Out Day, Friendship Day, Game Day, and Movie Day. What.a.blast. Theme days were the perfect way to end the school year! Here are some pictures...

4. For each of our theme days, we had to have theme snacks too of course! Thank goodness I had some amazing parents willing to donate food for our class! To coordinate everything I used Signup Genius. It is super easy and makes planning for ANYTHING a breeze! My school also used this website for parent/teacher conference signups. I simply created an account at the beginning of the year and inputted  parent email addresses. Signup Genius notified parents to signup and done! Each time I added a new event, Signup Genius sent an email to my parents notifying them. You can create one time events or reoccurring events. This site is perfect for coordinating classroom volunteers also! My teammate, who introduced my school to Signup Genius, used it to coordinate everything when she was the head wrestling mom. 

Seriously this site made planning for our theme days a piece.of.cake.

5. The activities you see above from our Lazy Day at the Beach theme day are from my Lazy Day at the Beach packet. If you're still looking for end of the year ideas... head on over to my little TPT shop and check it out!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend sweet friends! Thank you to all who have served our great country! God bless America and our troops!


  1. Love the fruit loop graphing! :)


  2. We also love SignUp Genius for donations and have had great luck! Great idea to use it for P/T Conferences!
