I am hoping the awesome job Broden and I did fundraising gives me some parent effort credits..haha Actually, I would have to give most of the credit to all of you - so THANK you for helping me a more involved parent. For a work-a-holic, I need constant reminders. It is just very scary that both my husband and I are self-employed now. The pressure and stress is definitely a lingering whisper in my ear. My kids are growing up so fast and yet, I know that if I don't force myself into my office, then I am hurting everyone. There is a lot more pressure when the financial responsibility relies solely on my own motivation and work ethics (which are supreme by the way..haha), but I am only one woman and one woman cannot possibly be everywhere at once...or can I? Lately, the kids will hang out in the office with me, which is nice. They like to see what I do and I enjoy having the extra time with them.
Well, I hope you all had a wonderfully productive week!! I have a lot in store for this Friday Five and I am excited to share some freebies!! Remember, you can grab the button at the beginning of this post, as well as the other title images, and link up with me every Friday. The Friday Five can be ANY five things you are interested in as long at it includes a FREEBIE to share.
Here is a cute funny I found floating around Facebook. I am not sure where it came from, but I thought you might all get a little silly giggle!!
I wanted to share something I found that all of you teacherpreneurs out there might fall in love with!! I found a very useful "App" that can be downloaded on your computer or your mobile device.
This app syncs sales information from your Paypal and Etsy accounts and automatically generates statistical information for tax purposes.
The app is free; however, you can upgrade to gain access to other helpful services they offer. I am currently using only the free service, and so far, I am really liking this app!! You can check it out by clicking the image below.
As I get more familiar with this app, I will update you on what I find.
I am sorry - I got nothin' hahaha So I guess this nothin' would be considered my frazzle. Sitting here at 1:15am, trying to think of something clever or amazing to write... LOL!!
This Friday, I hope you don't mind, but I decided to feature one of my own products that I have recently updated & improved.
Last year, I created an Iditarod Bulletin Board Unit filled with bulletin board words, accents, printables and activities. When I finished it, I was very happy with the result, but after looking at it again recently, I knew that I could do WAY Better!!
I have always loved tracking and watching the Iditarod Race with my students as well as on my own. It was not a popular resource on TPT - in fact, when I looked up the category last year, there was absolutely nothing! I was completely excited!! hahaha
I included bulletin board words, graphics (all created by me), printables, a giant printable outline of Alaska, checkpoint words and resources, as well as many other activities to go along with ANY book or resources you choose to do with your classroom.
I recently designed new bulletin board letters and words, improved the quality of the current graphics, added current graphics to the student book pages &&&&&
Added a zipped file filled with all of the PNG images of the words, letters and some of the accents for the unit. This will give you far more freedom to print a specific size or create extra materials to go along with what you are doing in your classroom.
The zipped file includes a PDF product file filled with all of the printables and suggestions for use, and a zipped file with over 50 graphics!! I would love for you to check it out. The Alaskan Iditarod Race begins in March and it is a perfect time to begin planning. You can click the image below to check it out.
I created individual letters as well as whole words for the reading bulletin board display. The letters turned out super cute and I love the colors. You are more than welcome to use the "READ" words I created below!
One of my favorite Iditarod themed books to read is Balto. You can get an eBook version for a few dollars on Amazon! This is for the younger kiddos, but there are a few good books for upper elementary as well.
You can click HERE to get a complete list of the TOP rated books! The Kindle versions are great to use in your classroom, because you can use them on an overhead or set up mobile devices for reading groups. Technology is slowly taking over...you better get with the times or be completely lost!
I hope you enjoyed my Friday Five!! Be on the look out for my Valentine's Card Pack that I will upload sometime later today! I won't leave without giving you one more FREEBIE you can grab right here from my blog!! Enjoy!
Please read my Term of Use before using any of my graphics. Thank you so much for your support & I LOVE reading your comments!!
