Tell All Tuesday 2.0 -Summer Recharge

It's Tuesday in the blogging world so that means it time for Tell All Tuesday with the amazing My Day in K and Teach, Talk Inspire!
It is hard to believe that this is my last full week of summer vacation. We report back on August 4th and the kiddos return on August 11th. Summer time is a great way for teachers to relax and recharge. This weeks link up is all about recharging!
Who doesn't love shopping?!? Especially those Target Dollar Spots! I have done a lot of shopping this summer. Yes there have been several trips to Target..but I have also been to T.J Maxx, Ross, IKEA, and Home Goods to name a few!
Oh PJ days how I love you! PJ days are pretty high on my favorite things about summer list! I enjoy hanging around the house with nowhere to be except on the couch binge watching something on Netflix or Hulu. During the school year there is no time for binge watching or I would be one grouchy teacher ha!
I enjoy creating things for my classroom! Summertime is perfect for creating because there is so much more TIME! I am also a planner so I also spend some of that precious summer time planner out my school year. Now if I could only plan out my blog and TPT calendar!!!!!
How do you recharge in the summer? Link up and let us know!

This summer I also got to go to IKEA with some of the BEST teachers I know! We had so much fun and I spent way to much money!!! If you haven't been you are missing out! I got several things for my classroom this trip but they had tons of other stuff I want to go back for!

Five For Friday- 5-27-16

I can't believe it's the last Friday of the 2015-2016 school year!!!! I just finished my 16th year of teaching! I can honestly say I love teaching more today than when I started. This week has been filled with last minute craziness, mounds of paperwork, report cards, cumulative records and lots of kiddos to keep up with. I am ready for summer but I will miss my sweet, sweet kinders so very much.
On Monday we celebrated the retirement of one of our kinder teachers. She has taught for 29 years! We had so much fun getting together and celebrating a wonderful teaching career! She will be greatly missed:)

On Tuesday night my daughter and I attended the high school graduation of my beautiful cousins..more like my nieces! There were 364 graduates in there class!
My kinders made a list of things that my new kinders next year need to know about kindergarten. I love the things they shared and can't wait to read it with my new group at meet the teacher in August. My teacher heart is full knowing that my kiddos know they are loved and that they had fun in kindergarten!

I had the wonderful privilege of watching my 5th class graduate high school Thursday night! I love seeing them reach this milestone. I know each and every one of them will do great things with their lives. I love that I got to be a small part of their educational experience!! Congrats to the class of 2016!!
How do you know it's the last Friday of the school year...this teacher was up before her alarm clock went off, clocked in early and has been singing all morning. Don't get me wrong I love, love, love my job and these kinders have been amazing... BUT who isn't ready for summer?!?!?!?!?!
 A few more little things to complete before this day is over then is rest and relaxation for the next 9 weeks!! Look out summer teachers are coming!!!
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Friday!

Five for Friday 5-13-16

It's Fri-YAY!!! It's time for Friday's link up with Doodle Bugs Teaching.
I spent a beautiful Mother's Day with my fabulous mother and my beautiful daughter. I am so very thankful for my mom! She is my biggest cheerleader and my closest friend!!!
I have started watching ok binge watching this show on Hulu! I love it!!! I think when I grow up I am going to be a detective:)

Yesterday while at recess on a DATA day...second one this week!! It started raining on us! The kids were running around like wild people so we gathered everyone all four classes under the tree to wait out the rain. The kids thought it was great and called it our umbrella tree ha. We stayed under the tree for about 10 minutes till the rain let up and the kids could go play. I have to admit that it was pretty fun!

Friday is my favorite day of the week with my kiddos! Yes they get incredibly loud and drive my slightly crazy...BUT they have the most fun just playing! They always look forward to fun Friday and their teacher does too!
Can you believe we have a FULL MOON and Friday the 13th at the same time! Not to mention that the kiddos are already going CrAzY since summer break is just around the corner! We have 10 days left.... it's the final countdown!!!
