Five for Friday: June 7, 2013

How time flies when you are having fun you are on summer break.  I've been on summer break for two weeks already.  Last Friday I was out of town for vacation, so I missed Doodlebugs Teaching's Five for Friday.  I thought I'd make it up this Friday and cover two weeks.
I hope you won't mind.  Here goes . . .

Number 1
Last night was our last of Vacation Bible School.  I had the kindergarten class.  We had an outstandingly sweet little group of kids.  They were so into it.  I feel tired and very blessed.

Number 2
I've been working on some Daily Five posts.  I think the summer is a great time to plan how to implement this literacy structure, so I'm trying to get some helpful tips up.  I know I really like looking at how others are making it work in their classes.
Below is a set of I chart posters that I created.

Number 3
Check the cute clutch I snagged on ebay.  I found these beaded clutches a few years ago at J. Crew.  There was a white, brown, and coral.  I loved them, but they all sold out before I could get one.  Every once in a while I stalk ebay for these clutches.  I have eventually gotten the white and the brown.  I finally found the coral one listed and grabbed it.  So happy.

Number 4
Like I said we were on vacation last Friday.  We were at Atlantis in the Bahamas.  I really enjoyed spending lots of time with my little family.   A   and I did the dolphin experience.  It was awesome.  I really don't know who was more excited about doing it.

Number 5
While we were on vacation  D  and I celebrated out 13th anniversary.  We've know each other since I was in sixth grade and he was in seventh.  We used to ride the bus together and I thought he was  s o o o  cute and I still do.  Happy anniversary  D !

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend.
