Five For Friday!

I think this post should probably be called Fried by Friday, because this week has totally exhausted me. I feel like the end of April hits and my calendar gets OUT OF CONTROL! So hopefully this post makes sense and doesn't read as if my three year old wrote it.  

Here are my 5 Randoms for this Wacky Week:

{ONE}
Mother's Day is quickly approaching.  Are you all ready?  I'm super excited about it this year as I'm hosting my first ever Mother's Day Tea.  I can't say too terribly much about it, just in case some of my school mommies are following. 

a. Here is the invitation I sent home. 

I also sent home the page below. 
b. My kiddos will be singing a few songs while their moms visit.  I found some adorable, simple songs here.

c. We'll also be making a special book for our mommies.  You can click here to download it. 

d. My kids will also do some of the adorable activities out of Cara's newest packet.  Everything my sweet friend Cara makes is OUT OF THIS WORLD ADORABLE! And this unit is no different.  

e. I have some free centers in my TpT Store that are Mother's Day Themed.  You can click here and here to download.

It was my student teacher's last day today.  We had a little going away party for her.  We got her a gift, cake and my sweet little people wrote her letters.  They each read their letter.  I promised Kate I would post the pictures of her crying. So here are a few happy pictures. 


{THREE}
I have had quite a few emails about this packet. 
This is my packet I send home with my firsties for the summer, to prevent the summer slide.  It's also a great review pack, if you just want to make sure your kiddos are ready for 2nd.  Anyway... I've been asked if I have a kindergarten to first grade version. And the answer is...YES & NO.  Yes, I'm working on it this weekend, but no it's not in my store quite yet.  My sweet friend Abby helped me name it, because she is genius.  
So here it is...COMING SOON.

{FOUR}
My Joy Cowley Big Book giveaway ends in a couple of hours.  So make sure you enter ASAP! 



{FIVE}
Here are some of my favorite pins from this week:

I think this outfit is pretty darn cute.

And finally...As a thank you for being such supportive friends, I am going to giveaway 3 of my Dollar Store Superlatives.  The first three comments to this post will receive my end of the year awards.

  3. Hi Michelle!
    I having been reading your blog forever. I use quite a few of your things in my class. I'm going to sound like a major dork here saying how much I'd like to be friends with you, Cara and Abby. I use so many of all your things in my class. I now sound like a crazy stalker. Thanks for all your great creations!

  20. So excited you are making a Kinder to First Summer pack... I spent weeks making one last year and pooooof.... Can not find it this year :( Boo, what in the world? I realized way too late to take the time to create one at this point. Everything I am seeing online is not at all what I am looking for (too weak). Excited to see your beautiful packet, I know it will be amazing. Do you know when you will have it up and ready? Thanks again!
