5 for Friday-September 5th

Completing my second week of school and I am so stinking exhausted. 

It's not just school, it's LIFE! 

My plate is so full, it overfloweth. 

I thrive in these times though. I need schedules to keep me on my toes. 
But, I will admit, I stretched myself THIN this week. 

Thankful for Doodlebugs to share this week with you. 

Here's my 5 
I had my second Donor's Choose grant funded this summer. This one was fast. I posted it on one of their "match" campaigns. This is where every donation is matched by another. It was quick and easy. 

I decided I want to use more literature in my middle school classroom, so I hopped on Amazon one day and just started perusing. I found GREAT STUFF!!! 

Look at all the goodies I got!!!! 

 Most of you are not old enough to know this girl's face.
She starred in The Wonder Years in the late 80's and early 90's. 

Well, she is all grown up and writing
books about MATH!!! 
I want to show girls that Math is not just for boys!!! 

 Love, love, love this series!!! 
My students love them too!

I can't wait to use all of them!

My passion for notebooking has led me to be a part of this great blog hop.

Be sure to click on over and see some GREAT writing about how to use interactive notebooks in your class. (ALL SUBJECTS INCLUDED)

I left Facebook over a year ago. 
Long story.
But, I am back on for my blog and business. 
Take a look when you are clicking around

I filled in my calendar this week when I received soccer AND baseball schedules for TWO children. 
I am exhausted just looking at it. 
I am still trying to figure out how to divide myself to be at Open House and baseball games on September 25th. 
And lastly, I am part of a HUGE bundle sale at Educents. This is my first one and it was a monster for me. 
I am not as technically savvy as I like to think. I will tell you, I have learned A LOT this week. 
Plus, I truly believe in these products and the ladies who have created them. 
Are you a middle school teacher? Do you know one? 
Do not let them miss this awesome deal

Happy Friday!
