Five for Friday with Freebies!

I think it has taken me 3 weeks to get this post together.  That's what going back to school will do to you!!!
This was my Saturday project :)  I got this idea from Queen of the First Grade Jungle and I loved it.  She had letters that spelled out the word DREAM...since I didn't have big letters, I made words.

I love these FREE posters by Khrys Bosland!
You'll see the words written on the polka dot paper.  That was from an idea we are doing school wide from Jon Gordon.  Here is the video that explains it!

Here is another freebie to hand out at the beginning of the year!  The students loved getting these tags with the glow bracelets you can get from the Dollar Store!  Click her to get these for free (PreK-6th grade)!

I always use table mats and this year I made new ones!!  This first one had to be done over, because it got bent in the laminator!!!  Isn't that the way things seem to work when you are trying to do 500 things!!!!  Table mats are a great way for all students to know which table they are sitting at and they are assigned a number.  Spots 1/2 and 3/4 are should partners while spots 1/4 and 2/3 are face partners.  You can say things like, "Twos, you need to get the team box."  or "I want partner A to go first."  

My friend recommended this book and I just started!! I'm not sure when I'll ever finish it, considering I'm falling asleep by 9pm!!  Gone are the summer days of staying up until midnight and sleeping in!!!


  1. I am so with you on falling asleep before 9! Back to school is such an adjustment-I feel like I could sleep for days!!!

  2. Love the idea of words on the fans! And it has been an adjustment for me too not to be staying up late too. Have a wonderful school year!

    1. Thank you, Lori!! I forgot to say that I found the fans at Hobby Lobby in their party section. I used a coupon, so they were about $3.00 for a pack of 6.
