Five for Friday: Fourth of July Weekend!

· · · · ·
Happy Friday, and Happy Fourth of July!!
It may be a holiday, but there is ALWAYS time for a little 5 for Friday action!

After we finished both season of Orange is the New Black, we moved onto House of Cards.  LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it!!! Could most certainly be my new favorite show!  Unfortunately, we have finished both season of House of Cards, and now we need a new show to occupy our time.  Please give me some suggestions!!

On Wednesday I took my car in for a routine oil change.  I left in a rental car…
Well, there were a couple of big recalls on my baby (aka Keisha).  Sad day….  Thankfully the dealership paid for a rental car and had my girl ready to pick up the next day.  They even gave her a bath and vacuumed.  I was SO excited to get Keisha back.  I really dislike driving strange cars!
Doesn’t she look pretty??

I took a trip to Michael’s this week and picked up a few a basket of things!  I’m currently working on a project that I hope to reveal on Monday for a Monday Made-It post.  You’ll have to check back then to see what I’m going to make with this cool wooden anchor that I picked up!

I am so excited about this next project!  I have been working on it for quite some time.  It’s my first big packet (over 140 pages), and I am thrilled that it is finally FINISHED!
Last year I could never find a sight word packet that had everything that I was looking for, and I often found myself searching around for certain activities.  No longer!  Because I decided to create my own!
This [MEGA Sight Word Pack] has over 135 pages of sight word practice pages!  The activities included are: Read It, Trace It, Rainbow Write It, Use It, Build It; Fluency Passages; Flash Cards; and Sight Word Graphing.  I’m so excited to have this resource because it’s going to give my kiddos tons and tons of sight word practice without doing the same old practice every day!
I also built in a little math with the sight word graphing pages.  Students will create a bar graph AND picture graph showing how many words in the box were the focus sight word and how were not.  Love it!
You can grab a copy of this packet [HERE].
We are headed off to Brenham (outside of College Station) today for the fireworks at Washington on the Brazos.  I’m excited to get away again, AND Saturday one of Dustin’s best friends is having a birthday party for her daughter who is turning ONE!
I was in charge of getting the gift, so I went to [Baby Bliss].  I believe they are only in the DFW area, but you can check out their online store.  One of my new favorite things is to shop for babies!
Check out this adorable dress that I picked up for her!  I got some coral leggings to go under, and of course because I am a teacher I had to get her a book as well.
Well, I hope that you all have a fantastic 4th of July full of laughter with the ones you love!


  1. I'm still in the middle of watching Orange is the New Black. I'm already sad I'm going to be done with it soon. I love your sight word pack, it's perfect for my reading intervention groups!!!

  2. Your blog is just the cutest! I love that I got to stop by and look around. The wreath that you made is adorable. Love it:)
    Take care, Amy
