Five for Friday and a Giveaway!

Hello! I'm back from vacation and trying to sort through emails, laundry, to do lists, and mail. One thing I just had to do was link up with Doodle Bugs for FFF!

 I just got back from a Caribbean cruise and I am tan and tired. Why is it that it feels like you need a vacation after your vacation? Well, I won't make you too jealous with all my pictures, so I'll just post one! Don't worry, no pictures of ME in a bathing suit--that's my daughter. This was my favorite island, St. Maarten. The water was crystal clear and the sand was like sugar. I didn't want to leave.

 I've been doing a book study with Sarah and Courtney from Adventures in Guided Math. I just finished Chapter 7 of Guided Math in Action by Dr. Nicki Newton and it is a great book. You can read about it here.
 I also did a Back to School Product Swap with Cara from Creative Playground. She paired me up with Jennifer Drake and I just had so much fun doing her Back to School Lapbook and I am looking forward to making this with my new bunch of 2nd graders. Guess what else? Jennifer is letting me do a giveaway of her Back to School Lapbook that is perfect for 1st & 2nd graders. Click here to read all about it and enter the giveaway.

You've probably heard that TpT is having a storewide back to school sale August 4-5. My store will also be on sale for a combined savings of 28% off. Now is the time to clear off your wish list! You may want to divide your purchases up and leave feedback so you can earn TpT credits to apply to your next purchase.

I just finished my very own Back to School Memory Book and First Week Activities pack. 

It is F-U-L-L of things to keep those kiddos busy meaningfully engaged during that crazy first week back to school. 

The good news is that it will be on sale for only $3 until I go back to work (waaaahhhhh) on August 6 and then it will be an additional 28% off August 4-5! The other good news is that you can WIN it!
