Five for Friday

Hello Friday! I am back with five random happenings from my week. I have a confession to make - some of these photos are throwback photos. It has been one of 'those' weeks. We have discussed them before. 

1. It is Friday. 

I think I covered that earlier. I am sure you are as excited as me. 
I am 'especially' excited, because it is the Friday BEFORE school goes back for a brand new year. 

I mean, isn't that just kick-you-in-the-crotch, spit-on-your-neck-fantastic?!

2. Prepping Games

Does any week in my life not contain printing and laminating? My girl is loving being allowed to assist with the laminator while she is off school. Here is a 'Make 10' game from my recent listed bundle of addition games

3. The Hundred House
I made some printable worksheets that have been stuck inside my mind, and on my to-do list for a few years. These cuties will help your students became familiar with the number order and patterns on a 100 chart. 

4. Chocolates

We finished the chocolate stash from Christmas. It has taken 6 weeks. I am now back on the detox. 

5. Back to School

I have just a few days left of summer break and I am getting excited about a fresh new school year. I am working an additional day in the classroom this year, so I have lots to look forward to! I started going through my bookshelves today to gather all my 'school' themed books. I love reading these in the first few weeks of term. Do you have a favourite BTS read aloud? I would love to add some more to my collection. 

Don't forget you still have time to enter and win a BTS Bounty. Click HERE to read all about it!

I am linking up this post with Doodle Bugs, please head over and check out the other posts!

OMG - The Kinder Hat! I had that book when I first started school (and my mum still has it!). Fabulous book! I also love to read Wombat Goes to School at the start of the year.

I always liked to read Monsters of Class 7 by Michael Ratnett and another called The Summer My Father was Ten by Pat Brisson. Both were great community builders! Hope you have afabulous class!

I read First Day Jitters and The Kissing Hand.
A couple of years ago, you did a post about Who's Behind the Door at My School? As I teach a composite 1/2, I have to use the books on a two year cycle. So I am looking forward to doing reading Who's Behind the Door again this year.
