Five for FRIDAY

It's Friday! Hallelujah. Waking up on Fridays is always just a bit easier... Oh what a week. This is my first time linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and I could not be more excited about this blog. I am going to share 5 random things from this week. This was a picture of our circulation counter this morning in the library. We had a half day and were busy every second! I love that we have so many amazing readers at our school. They sure keep me busy! :)

I like to treat myself to a little Starbucks on Friday and we have a 7:45 staff meeting this morning, so I think that extra shot of espresso will help do the trick!

We celebrated International Dot Day in the library this week and all the Kindergarteners loved making their own dot bookmarks. I use this story to remind all kids that we each can make a mark and a difference. What a great message and reminder!

Pumpkin spice is in the air. I could not resist buying half of the pumpkin flavored finds at Trader Joe's and make these adorable mini muffins to share with staff this week. Delish!
I finally finished my library prize box. I love how it turned out! I will be posting a blog all about how I use this in our library. It is a colorful addition that I am absolutely loving! :)

I am LOVING all my Erin Condren goodies this year. This package just arrived with my snap in post-it notes and little encouragement cards. I can't wait to use these this year. So worth every penny!

Make sure you check out some other happenings this Friday! TGIF...:)


  1. You just inspired me to remake my Teacher Toolbox... It's pretty outdated with some old colors and your bright and fun labels look AMAZING! I'd totally buy this from you -- LOVE!

    So glad I found your blog!
    Have a great weekend,
    My Shoestring Life

  2. I have an Erin Condren and I love it!!! I picked up my this Pumpkin Spice Latte this morning at Starbucks and it made my day so much better!

  3. So bummed that I missed International Dot Day!! Such a great book with so many teaching points.

    I'm currently awaiting my Erin Condren planner and having planner envy whenever I see someone else's!!

  4. I love the labels on your library prize box! So cute. I don't love pumpkin very much, but I do love Starbucks. I like to reward myself with a frappuccino every payday. :)

  5. Thanks for the reminder to hit up Trader Joes for pumpkin goodies! Love that place!
