Five For Friday June 14th

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!

1. More Cute Cuddly Creatures
We started our week with a visit to another Australian wildlife park. Yep, I think I have had my fill of our beautiful creatures for a little while. Tip for the future - if you want to see some active Aussie creatures, go mid to late afternoon. We saw this cray one jumping from branch to branch!

2. I am a Health Nut
I started another I-am-not-on-a-diet-but-am-changing-my-lifestyle. It lasted till about 11am on Monday this week. Then these happened. 

I have eaten just 2 of these delicious chic-chip cookies, instead of 8, so that counts for something. And I had to stand up to cook, that is exercise my friends. Got the blood moving. See - lifestyle change. 

3. I have spent some more time this week adding some more pages to some of my files. And when I add pages, I can't help but change things around. 

This set includes cvc write and wipe cards and worksheets. Students have to fix the mixed-up letters to create a cvc word that makes sense. 

The cards set still features the big funny-shaped eye spiders that were in the original

but I have added some bugs too! If you purchased the original version, you can grab the new one for free from your "My Purchases" tab!

4. I have been laminating. I know. Amazing! I am still working at getting all my resources sorted and I can't wait to finish to show you. I have downloaded a ton of stuff from TpT over the years and it feels great to get them all printed, laminated and sorted, so that I can grab them easily and be ready-to-go! Here is another one I just found. It is PERFECT for Kinder and First Grade (review, beginning of the year). Students need to match upper and lower case letters. I love it because it is fun, yet uncomplicated. My students always love activities like that!

Best yet, it is FREE! You can find it at TpT HERE


I have had several requests for some writing paper that matches the resources in my alphabet pack. 

It will help your students learn to write their letters in consistent size and proportions. 

You can grab it for FREE in my Fan Freebie tab on Facebook!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Head over to Doodle Bugs for more random posts!

OMG! Sometimes it us unbelievable how in sync we are. I am starting a SERIOUS HEALTH KICK this week, see how serious it is because it is in capital letters. Not sure how long it will last but hoping it lasts long enough to get rid of some kg's
Good luck to us both my friend!

Awwww Tania, we are, and we NEED to have a catch up soon! I totally use CAPS all the time, cause I want to emphasise certain words and I am too lazy to hit shift and italicise them. Maybe when I am fit and healthy, I will have more energy! :)

You make me giggle. I have also started a health kick. I have some serious weight to shift so need to do more then standing...

Thanks for sharing the link to the freebie! I too have a ton of things I'd like to laminate. :) I have bought a lot from TPT but it's nice to find free products as well ;)
