Five for Friday!

YAY! It's Friday! I survived my first week as a 3rd grade teacher! It was a great week!

Today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teach for Five for Friday! Head on over to link up, too!
1.  I posted this picture that I wanted to recreate the first week of school...

And here is mine with my co-teacher! Who just so happens to be a good friend of mine...we've known each other since elementary school, now we are teaching together!

2. Pencil sharpening is driving me CRAZY! AHHH! I've been asking the vets in my building for tips, but all are in the same boat as me. I just ordered my new sharpener at Classroom Friendly Supplies. Fingers crossed! Anyone have this sharpener?

Go get yours now!

3. The kiddos need to know what time lunch and such is...but not all can tell time. So, I made my own clock labels to put up at school this weekend!

4. Does anyone else have teacher nightmares? I started having them when I started my full time position in January. I have a reoccurring dream that I let the students fall asleep and we all just sleep in class! YIKES! :(

5. I came across this little gem and just had to share. I hope you haven't see it yet!

I usually say until tomorrow...but who really knows when I will blog next! :)



  1. I love your class picture! I need to do that!! That is awesome you get to teach with someone you've known for years! I have teacher nightmares all the time. I love that video too! Makes me laugh every time I watch it. Looks like you're off to a great start!

  2. Congratulations on becoming a 3rd grade teacher. I taught third a while back and really enjoyed that grade. I found your blog through the linky and am happy to report that I am your newest follower. I also am new to blogging. I can't wait to read more post. If you get a chance I would love for you to stop by my blog and check it out. Us newbies need to stick together {ha}! Thanks for sharing.


  3. I love your back to school picture! It's so adorable. And I'm a first year teacher as well, and I have teacher nightmares alllll the stinking time. It's absurd! I'm your newest follower!


  4. Surviving the first week is a huge accomplishment!! The rest will be downhill from here. You'll have to report back about your new pencil sharpener. I have an electric one that came with my room that is awesome. Its an x-acto and it takes 4 seconds a pencil. Haven't tried the "fancy" pencils so time will tell with those. Anyways, enjoy your weekend!!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower of yours. I love that sharpener. I have a blue one. There is a bit of a learning curve, show your class the video that is one the website before you let them use it. Then it is easy, quiet, and makes your life a lot easier!

  6. Thanks for sharing the video! I totally agree!!!

  7. Your nightmare makes me laugh. I regularly joke about napping in class, but usually I'm not really joking, and I actually lay down to nap... but the kids are laughing too hard so I can never actually sleep. HAHAH!

    Also, here in Taiwan, we have school wide nap time. There's actually a room with 80+ bunk beds that the Grade 1s & 2s go to for like an hour or something every day. The older kids get 30 minutes to nap. The kids are at school from like 7:30-5:30 (or later) sooooo they kind of REALLY need it!
