Anywho, today I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share five random things about my week for another Five for Friday!
1. Probably the biggest thing that has happened this week for me is that I moved! I tried to time the move so that I could be settled in the new house before school starts so I can focus all my energy on one big thing at a time (I have a bad habit of overloading myself). The house is really starting to come together, and I just love it! This is my first time living without any roommates and I've been loving the fact that I can decorate the entire house exactly how I want it. It's been helping me get out a little of the decorating bug while I wait to go decorate my classroom (which is happening next week!!).
I'm pretty good at this moving thing, if I do say so myself! ;)
(On second thought, maybe I ought to just stick with teaching.)
2. On another non-school related note, I discovered the On-Demand feature on my TV this week. That may not seem like a cool thing to most people, but for this girl who is easily amused and never watches shows in real time, it made me pretty excited! I decided to see what all the hype is about and watch the first couple episodes of Game of Thrones. I haven't quite decided how I feel about it yet, I think I need to watch a little more. Are there any other shows I should check out?
3. This Sunday is my birthday! I started off my birthday weekend a little early last night to see Aaron Watson and Chase Rice at the free concert in Kansas City. It was such a great show!
4. Now to something slightly more school-related. This week at work we decided to get all the bulletin boards ready for the new school year! It must be the teacher-nerd in me, but I do love a good bulletin board! Last year, we made this masterpiece:
This year's back-to-school board was not quite as involved, but I still think it's equally as cute! How awesome are those life-like popcorn pieces?
5. I started working on a couple of projects for back-to-school, including my Meet the Teacher letter and an All About Me page for my students to fill out of the first day of school while I am doing some housekeeping things. I scoured Teachers Pay Teachers for an All About Me page to use, but just couldn't find any that I really loved, so I decided to just make my own! Can you guess what my classroom theme is? ; )
The blank space on the right ear is where they will draw a self-portrait! I'm planning on displaying these either around the classroom or out in the hallway on my big bulletin board. If you're interested in a copy of this for yourself, comment with your email address and I'd love to send it to you!
I hope all of you have a fabulous Friday and enjoy your weekend!
