SUMMER STEALS & Five for Friday!

Hi Friendily Friends (that's what I call my class and a little boy this week told me how much he loves it!- so sweet)

It's a Five for Friday kind day. Thanks Doodle Bugs!

1. I am super excited to share with you this little bit of summer fun! Every weekend this June- August I will be putting one item in my TPT store on sale for $1.00!!!! You read that correct ONE DOLLAR! I have some pretty fun stuff planned to upload to that little 'ole store of mine too.

Check out this weeks product "Behavior Charts" HERE.
It will be $1.00 through Sunday night.
That's 20 behavior charts for $1.00!
Did I mention it's one dollar?

2. The weather today was AMAZING!! I so need to live in a warm climate. We still have 14.5 days left of school. But we have about a million field trips and fun stuff to squish in those days. Next week we will be rockin' out our camping unit. It is my FAVORITE thing to do all year. I picked up these fun little treasures from amazon to add to my camping collection.
worst photography ever!!
I am using these awesome products
A Camping We Will Go by Ashley Sanderson at Flying in First
Camping Capers by Cara Carroll at The First Grade Parade
Think I'll need to squeeze in a trip to the local library this weekend too for some more books! If I can fit it in with the beach trip I have planning since I saw the 10 day forecast. I will be back next week with lots of camping fun fotos! Promise!

3. We had the sweetest field trip today which I have no pictures of! We have penpals at another school in our district. We write back and forth all year and then they visit us and we visit them. I didn't take pics because I am not sure of their media policy and I am an extreme rule follower. The kids love it though!! We did interviews, made bracelets, drew pictures of each other, had lunch, recess and popsicles. It was perfect. Both classes were so super well behaved.

4. I am so sad all my shows are over. That makes me sound like a bit of a dork, huh? But  I am! I feel a bit lost at night. So I am catching up on a few movies. Did you see this Lifetime movie? I {heart} me some Lifetime!!

It's called "Ring of Fire" starring Jewel (looking nothing like herself) and the creepy guy from Big Love. On my movie watching list- Side Effects, Safe Haven, Silver Linings Playbook and Identity Thief. If you have any suggestions of shows to watch I love watching a whole season in one she-bang!

5. I ordered my Erin Condren planner this week. Eeek!! I am so so so excited. I can't wait for it to arrive. Probably mid June-ish is will be here. It was a major decision which one to choose! I will keep you in suspense as to what I chose...hehehe (that's my evil laugh).

Have a beautiful weekend. Don't forget to check back each weekend for my Summer Steals!

  3. Hi Deirdre!
    What a great idea! My hope is to stock up my TPT store with new products this summer. I have ideas scribbled all over my "work space" at home!
    My kiddos LOVE Scaredy Squirrel! I have to say, he's got a special place in my heart, too!
    I need to catch up on some shows & stuff, too! Silver Linings Playbook is DEFINITELY on my list.
    I'm SO glad you ordered your EC planner! Mine is "in production" and should be shipping soon! I have the Life Planner and LOVE it! I think I'm an EC customer for LIFE now!
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Deidre,

    I heart camping in the classroom- such a fun way to learn! I haven't done a pen pal field trip in quite a few years. You made me think of the good times I had with my kids and fellow teacher friends! I am having a giveaway- hope you can join!

  5. Deirdre,
    Your blog is stinkin adorable! I don't know how I didn't know about it before but NOW I'm officially your newest follower. I love your idea of putting something in your store for $1 each week...I may need to copy that. So smart! Enjoy your summer- I have 4 more days. :o)

  6. Hi Deirdre!
    I ordered my EC planner too...after hours of looking at them...then I called and switched to a different one. I only have a small decision making problem :)! Love the pen pal meet up idea!
