Five for Friday Linky!!!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday linky party!!!
1. Workshops Galore
I have been doing a lot of professional development so far this summer.  I had a leadership team meeting at my school.  I went to a workshop on word study.  This week I went to a workshop on Common Core Math.  It was a great workshop.  I cannot wait to try out some of the things I learned.  The picture below is of an exit ticket we did that I would love to try in my class.
2. My Craigslist Find
So I get on Craigslist occasionally to find some good deals.  I am always searching for teacher garage sales.  I saw a post that sparked my interest for a bundle of teaching items for a Hollywood/movie themed classroom.   HHHHEEEEEYYYYYY!!! That was exactly what I was looking for! I drove for 40 minutes to meet her to pick it up.  I really think I hit the jackpot because I couldn't have found all of this stuff or made my own cute stuff.  I have included some pictures below.

3.  Brandy Concert
I enjoyed the Brandy concert with my friend.  She was really good and sang a lot of her older songs.

4.  H&M
Just opened this week here!  I can't wait to check it out!!

  3. I absolutely love the movie theme!! I always to the same theme every year, "Moving Right Along Together" (Muppets), and I think I will incorporate some of the movie things with it--that would be perfect. Enjoyed reading about your week!
