My First Five for Friday!

Okay, it's not my first Five for Friday.  It's actually my favorite linky.  It IS, however, the first time I am participating as The Colorful Apple - yay!



1. This is how Wednesday started.  Coffee. All. Over. The. Floor.  And not in my cup.  I was walking out the door and dropped it - not cool!  Luckily I did not get any on me.  Seriously, don't know how that happened.

2.  I went to a state testing training this week.  As a second grade teacher, I didn't have to administer state tests.  Now as a fifth grade teacher, I do.  I got to sit at the training between my principal and my dad!  How cool is that?

3. After a super busy back to school season, I finally have time to create again!  Made some posters for my classroom last weekend.  I'll explain more soon!

4. One of my fifth graders gave me an apple!  They won't tell me who though!  Either that or they just left it on my desk and forgot about it...

5. It's fall!  Ok, it's not.  But it's September and that's close enough.  I've broken out my fall-scents and I am super excited about it!


And here's just one more....

I was at school until 8:00 last night for Open House last night (which went wonderfully!!) and I think someone missed me.

Speaking of Open House, I missed Day 4 of my Brand New Blog Giveaway yesterday, so I am making up for it today!


You can win $50 to Really Good Stuff!!  I asked you what your favorite teacher store was and this was a popular response {and easily accessible to everyone}!

Don't forget to enter these giveaways as well {they end tonight!}

Good luck!

  1. What a cute blog! And your little fur baby looks like mine! I have a Yorkie named Oliver who misses me desperately when I'm at school! Aren't they the best to come home to?

  2. Welcome to upper elementary! I taught fifth grade for three years. Now, I teach fourth and love it just as much.

    Thank you for the giveaway! I would have to buy some more of their bright colored baskets or bins if I win the gift card. I just love them!

  9. Lucky! (Said no one ever but I'm kinda serious!) They train you on the state testing? I just moved from Kindergarten to 3/4 and I'm really worried about the state test, already! I don't think I get any training on it. :/

  12. I love seeing pics of your furbaby! I am such a yorkie lover! If I won a GC to RGS, I would probably buy book bins for my students. I say probably because I love everything from RGS! They are always discovering new and intriguing ways to hold stuff! LOL!

  27. There are so many good things, that's it's hard to decide. I'd either go for matching book bins (so I can get rid of the non-matching ones) or one of the many things I have circled in their catalog on my desk right now (things I want that I don't have the money for).
