Five for Friday! (Plus a little giveaway)

So I'm still in school and SUPER jealous of all you peeps on summer vacation. Sigh. Here's my five for Friday!

  1. Let the packing begin!

My room is now half packed and ready to move schools and grades. I'm sad to leave my kids and my friends from work. 

Meet my new pals!
My guppies and snails...

...and my millipedes and pill bugs- ick.

We're studying these woodland critters in science. Watching me try to scoop out millipedes wearing two ziplock bags on my hands and using a plastic spoon was comical, I'm sure.

Not the best pic, but our classroom mascot, Skippyjon Jones, went to Disney with a student this week. SO cute! She even had a picture of him on Splash Mountain. Click here to grab my Skippyjon mascot pack :)

4. I have been slowly getting back to creating things for TpT after a little lull. I finished up my mystery reader packet tonight and I am SO excited about it! I didn't do as good of a job this year with mystery reader as I have in years past, so next year, I wanted to be ready! 
I'd love to give one of these away tonight! Leave a comment below with your e-mail and I'll pick someone randomly :) Click here to check it out on TpT!

5. Have you entered my 100 follower giveaway?! It's full of these awesome prizes!

  1. Don't feel too envious about those of us who are out. My first full day back in the fall is August 5th! (Not counting my summer in-services....)

  2. Best wishes in your new school! Would love to win your newest packet!

  3. What a cute pack. My first day of summer is tomorrow with 2 weeks at the beach. I'm so stoked! I'm moving schools and grades next year too. Good luck to you!


  4. I can handle (well, not literally) isopods, but the mealworms nearly did me in. Never so happy to leave sixth grade and those critters behind!

    I love your Mystery REader packet...would love to win a copy!

  5. Your Mystery Reader kit looks fantastic. I like the idea of having them guess who it is to help them start making predictions. I'm sorry to hear you have to pack everything up I often feel like I need a Uhaul when I have to pack up my classroom. I hope your move to a new school is everything that you want it to be, I would love to win a Mystery Reader packet it looks "wicked" cool. :-)

  6. I have moved classrooms four times so I feel your pain on packing its definitely no fun. :(

    Your new reader pack looks awesome
