Five for Friday

I signed up for my first TpT conference! I am soooo excited!! I love Las Vegas and I have been dieing to stay at the Venetian for the past few years.CAN'T WAIT!! Are you planning on going to this years conference?

Since I have been on spring break I have had time to work on a few house hold chores like cleaning out the fridge :

There were a few containers that got pushed to the back of the fridge and magically found their way into the garbage can. Gladwear is my friend!

Another plus of spring break is being able to catch up on some prime time tv watching ....or netflix binge watching would be a more accurate way to put it :) Don't least until I tell you that I have been marathon watching Desperate Housewives all week. Ok now you can judge ...

Before we went on break I told you guys about our Read Across America Week theme days! It was fantastic! The kids loved DEAR day! They asked why we can't drop everything and read every to my ears! Another activity we accomplished that week was decorating our hallway in the theme of one of Dr. Seuss' books. We chose "Oh the Places You'll Go" and the kids decorated the entire hallway..I didn't have to do anything, yet another reason why I love teaching 8th graders!!

Every 7th and 8th grader decorated a hot air balloon and added in some of the places(aspirations) they hope to accomplish once they leave middle school. Loved this!!

And lastly I went shopping today and bought a new bed spread that I LOVE LOVE LOVE! As much as I love having time off I think I will be ready to head back on Monday. 3 Weeks till Testing!! More on that next week!

Have an amazing weekend!
