Five for Friday and a Flash Freebie

1. Summer PD! Yesterday, today, and Monday, I've been at PD. Yesterday was OUTSTANDING!!! I need to get all my notes sorted, but I loved the phonics continuum that was shared. There were so many little things I realized that I didn't know, that could make a big difference when students struggle. One idea that I loved was when students get confused between short i and short e (or even mixing up letters), don't try and teach both a the same time during intervention. Focus only on one. I also got tons of ideas for phonemic awareness and phonics! I love when I go to a PD and I come away with LOTS of ideas. Once I get my ideas organized, it will eventually be an entire blog posting!!!
2. Date Night. Tonight, dear husband and I are going to see "42"! I cannot wait! We have a $1 theater in town...the movies are never the newest releases, but it is a cheap, fun date!
3. Biopsy...I had a biopsy on my back done over lunch :( I have so many scars. The dr. is pretty sure this one is basal cell carcinoma, which is much better than melanoma (I've had both). My doctor is amazing, and thankfully, I can get in pretty much same week, if I need to see him. My public service announcement: Don't forget to wear sunscreen!
4. I love this quote. This describes me perfectly! I love adventure! My goal is to one day be on the Amazing Race.
5. I got the email that Old Navy has $8 dresses tomorrow! I love wearing dresses!
My flash freebie is my newest product. It is great for back to school- and the PowerPoint can be edited! PS I'm addicted to Mealonheadz clipart!!! This is free until 4pm today!
