Five For Friday!

Happy Friday!

Only 4 more days of testing!!!  I keep reading about parents that can opt their children out of testing.  We can’t do that where I live.  However, this year they are up to 11-12 tests!  That is crazy.  It used to be 2 math tests and 2 reading tests.   To get everyone scheduled, we have to start so early!  Obviously teacher’s aren’t in charge of this madness!!!

On a happy note….Easter clearance candy!

Sums of 10 butterflies!

Fun new bins at our Everything $1 store!!!  I love these baskets for work stations!

The weather has been great here…shopping for outdoor stuff J

I love this quote!


  1. Only a teacher understands finding great bargain bins! I love the quote at the end. I wear a charm often that is engraved with the words, "Never Quit". Have a great weekend!
    Teachers Are Terrific!

  2. LOVE Starburst Jelly Beans. They're the best.

  3. We are just entering "testing season" - this year it begins Monday and lasts until May 22 with make-ups. I SO need that quote at the end of your post.

  4. We have a few more weeks until testing begins, but I am absolutely dreading it. Such a stressful time for everyone!

  5. Bridget- This was the perfect post for me: I love those bins at Dollar Tree; I redid my whole classroom last year in green and purple. They make it so much neater. I so want to plant my flowers and lettuce, but it is supposed to get cold here in Michigan next week, so I won't I am looking for a cute table and chair set for our deck, which hubby will hopefully get repaired and repainted this next week if the weather holds. AND our blogs have the exact same quarterfoil background.
