Five for Friday with a Fantastic Giveaway!


 It's that time again!  I missed last week because we've been crazy busy.  Who hasn't, right??  I know.  But I'm back this week!  Stick with me until the end for a chance to enter my HUGE birthday bonanza giveaway!


I've been working hard on getting my Guided Reading binder all together.  I bought this fabulous kit from Caitlin over at Kindergarten Smiles.  You can find Part 1 and 2  HERE in her TpT Store.  It's so fabulous!  I have it pretty much ready to go.  It's helped me organize my small groups SO much!

We did the fabulous picture sort this week.  My intervention specialist is a TpT/blogging nerd like me.  She made this N/M picture sort for me to use.  As soon as she gets the link up, I will be sure to let you know because she's doing a great job with the picture sorts.  Check her out over at The Phonics Phenomenon!

Tuesday was my birthday.  I've been wanting red Toms forever.  When my mom said, "Buy something you want for your birthday," I knew right where to go!  I wore them for the first time today and I'm in love!

It's fall in Ohio!  Nowhere I'd rather be.  It's beautiful where we live in the fall.  We are actually one of the largest tourist areas in the state because of our fall foliage.  This is just down the road from my house.  The trees probably have another week or two of fall beauty and then they will be bare.

As I mentioned, Tuesday was my birthday.  I put together a HUGE giveaway to celebrate.  You won't want to miss it!  Some of my blogging IDOLS were kind enough to donate!  Run, don't walk!  Click the image to take you over to the blog post with the Rafflecopter.  Hurry--it ends tomorrow!!
Have a great weekend, everyone!!
