Five for Friday #getnaked

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs on this nice and sunny Friday!

1)  #getnaked
If that doesn't get your attention, I don't know what will :)  May is Melanoma Awareness month.  I had melanoma on my back when I was 35. Thankfully all that remains is a giant scar on my back.  I'm spreading awareness about skin checks!  Click here for more information!!!  Feel free to share the link :)

2)  These books just arrived, and I'm using them with fifth graders.  They are going to write persuasive essays about why the book they read is the coolest job on the planet!

3)  I'm still on my inspirational quote kick!  Here's my latest favorite.

4)  One of my New Year's resolution was to run 500 miles!  I'm such a nerd.  I keep a spreadsheet to keep track of my miles.  I am still on target to meet my goal!!! In fact, since the weather is nice, I'm doing better running outside :) 

5) Here is a Mother's Day Freebie!!!!It is ink friendly :)  Here are some examples of it put together.


  1. What a fun project to learn and write about the coolest jobs! They will have so much fun with this!

  2. Thanks, Lori! I think they will love it. They were excited to see the new books :)

  3. I just found your blog because BigTime Literacy featured you in her May Currently. I love the design of that inspirational quote poster. And it's such a true message! Glad I found you and looking forward to reading more of your posts.
