Another Friday has arrived!! Only one more Friday in July is left!! Can you believe there are stores with Christmas stuff out already???
Today I am linking up with the fabulous Doodle Bugs Teaching for her super-fun 5 for Friday linky party!
This linky is where we get to share five random things from our week.
My sweet furbaby Isis had her fourth birthday on Tuesday!! It kinda snuck up on me, I can't believe she's four!! Not being able to get around on my own yet, I wasn't able to get her a gift yet. I know she's not going to care one bit that I'm late with her birthday gift, though it makes me a bit sad!!
It says three years, but the bottom pic was taken a week before her fourth birthday. I didn't realize her birthday was so close when I took this!!
She's changed so much since she was a puppy! However, she just seems to love me more and more every day!! Love her to pieces!!
On Monday I had another doctor's appointment with my Foot and Ankle Specialist. I received laser treatment #7, and talked with the doctor about how my recovery is going. I've been able to use my leg brace and walker and put weight on my foot to walk. I have even been practicing going up and down the stairs using just the brace and the hand rails! The doctor said as long as I didn't overdo it, I could start to take short trips out into the wide wide world!! Huge deal for me, since I've been stuck on the couch since January, only leaving for a doctor's appointment!!
After my appointment, my dad and I went to a local Red Robin. I have a tavern bacon double-cheeseburger with bottomless fries, and a grown up drink or two. This was so yummy!! A prickly pear margarita with sugar on the rim!! So good!!!
It was so incredibly wonderful to get out of the house! Tomorrow I get to go to Target and zip around the aisles in the little electric cart! The Dollar Spot is calling my name!!!
If you've been paying attention to social media lately, especially Periscope, you have learned about the movement created by Lucky Little Learners and Schroeder's Shenanigans in 2nd called 'Find Your Tribe'. This is a way for teachers to get together and help each other out by giving support, encouragement, collaboration, and so much more!
There are many different tribes you can become a part of, and often more than one tribe will apply to you! Just go search Facebook and you're going to find at least one tribe for you to join up with!!
I was lucky enough to become a part of #teachertribe, #primarytribe, and #kindertribe. I find myself spending the most time with #kindertribe, since this is a group full of kindergarten teachers. There are so many in this group that the experience level ranges from brand new to veteran teachers. There is so much wonderful information and ideas to share! The #kindertribe Facebook group I belong to have gone a step further and created a blog. This blog was designed with the intent for kindergarten teachers from all over the world to come together and help build each other up!
In order to get to know the many, many kindergarten teachers who are part of our tribe, there is an awesome linky party going on right now.
This linky party is where we get to share a bit more about ourselves and learn more about each other. You can read about the many members of our tribe by clicking on the image above!
I've been working hard on adding some new products to my TPT store! I have been creating different activities that can be used during the beginning of the year. I think my kinders are really going to enjoy these!
They will get to use various colors of BINGO daubers during each of these activities! You can read all about these three activities by clicking here!!
Finally, I wanted to share with you how my Freebie Feedback Challenge is going! For any of you who don't know, I am challenging myself to leave feedback on all of the freebies I have downloaded from TPT. Here's what I've accomplished so far!
Since I started, I have been trying to leave feedback on at least ten freebies every day. This doesn't always work, and some days I leave more and other days I leave less. However, I think I'm going pretty well so far!! I have left feedback on almost 300 freebies, and that's pretty awesome!!
Thanks so much for reading about my 5!! Swing back over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to see who else has linked up. You can link up too!!
Don't forget that tomorrow is Spotlight Saturday! It's a Teacher's Show and Tell link up to share your favorite products, activities, resources, activities, ideas, tips, tricks, and whatever else you use in your classroom life that you just have to share!
