I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching this week to participate in Five for Friday!  This is my first time and I am super excited to read the other posts for Five for Friday as well.

This week I was really excited because I got a new design for my blog!  I haven't really been a blogger in the past but I am really looking forward to blogging and connecting with other teachers.  I have to send a huge thanks to Designs by Kassie for creating my vision.  I love my design!

 I have also been trying to gain some followers!  I launched a small giveaway that includes some small teacher items, a $5 Starbucks gift card, and a $10 TpT gift certificate!  I am excited about this.  Please make sure you enter to win!
Ahhh!! Finally started in my classroom too.  I have sooooo much work to do.  I am hoping to complete it by next Wednesday.  We have inservice beginning Thursday.  Summer is almost gone!

I've been hearing a lot about close reading so I made little bookmarks and small charts for my classroom.  I am going to print on cardstock and laminate the bookmarks for my kiddies.  I hope they help them to become better at comprehension and understanding texts.

Today I am going to work on this blogging thing some more!  I am really excited so today I will be doing some research on how to create and maintain a successful blog.  I can't wait to see what I find!
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
