Five for Friday!

So I am just unwinding from my day...and I can take a deep is Friday! Yay! It has been one of those weeks! My little darlings showed new colors this week, and well- this afternoon we had to have  a mini "pep talk" about coming back a new person on Monday! NO FUN! :( Can anyone say "Spring Fever"?!?!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs to share 5 random things from my week...

That is the number of days till I see my mom! :) Love her...and can't wait! It is also the number of Friday's left in this school year! Can I get a whoop whoop!?! :)

2. This week we made our Earth Day Pledges. I love all the kid's ideas and how they are taking care of the Earth so seriously. What I am not loving is how they are picking up trash on the way to lunch right after we got our hands clean to eat! Oh geez! 

3. We learned all about trees this week. We went for a tree walk and did a leaf rubbing. The kids thought the leaf rubbing was crazy magic and LOVED it! We also did an super easy, super fast tree painting and writing activity!

4. I treated myself to something special this week...a laminator! And folks, I don't know why it took me sooooo long! Seriously, I wish I had made this purchase long ago!

5. This morning I woke up to an email from my student loan holder informing me that my Teacher Loan Forgiveness Application has been finally processed and a portion of my loan has been forgiven! Yes, you read that correctly! Happy DaNCinG!!!!! I applied 9 months ago and have been waiting patiently. If you have a loan, check out the link so that you can read about Teacher Loan Forgiveness, the requirements and how to apply! 

So I know I am WAY behind...last week I said that I was going to be posting fairy tale craftivities and I have had a few people ask about them. I am sorry I have not been so productive the past week. I promise I will have them posted tomorrow! Have a great night folks...thanks for taking time to read about my 5 random things----go link up too!!

Don't forget about Kinder Krazy's Giveaway!

  1. Oh my goodness that's so awesome about your loan! I've never heard of that- and I'm certain that they don't have anything like it in New Zealand unfortunately!

    Is your laminator for your classroom or at home? I've been thinking it would be good to have one at home for all the fun TpT resources I'm finding.

    I just found you through the linky and am your latest follower
