Five for Friday: Recap Edition


Happy Friday! If you're already back on the school grind, I hope you had a great week...and if these are your last few days of freedom, I hope you're cherishing them as much as I am!

Me, this week.

This is a lazy quick post because it's time for me to transport everything I acquired over the summer (seriously, how did the entire contents of Target end up in my spare room??) to my classroom. Then, the fun really begins!

Here's a wrap up of what I've had going on in the blogging/TpT world lately:


I wrote a post on how to make this the best school year EVER.




I also participated in the Pinterest Pick 3 linky party, where I shared pins I'm going to use to help me in my new role as mentor coordinator:




We also covered a great chapter in our Explore Like a Pirate book study this week. Even if you have no interest in gamification at all, this chapter had a lot of great tips on getting students engaged in your lesson, as well as fun ways to review content!





This week, I also posted my Presidential Fun Fact Writing Prompt Task Cards (say that 10 times fast)!



You can read about how I'll be using these for my morning work in this post.


Finally, I put together my first growing bundle! My Choice Board Growing Bundle is currently available for only $5. The price will go up by a dollar for every new choice board I add.


Personally, I think this is a great bargain! Make sure to check it out!

Have a great weekend! Make sure to head over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to share your Five for Friday.

  1. Hi Marianna, Nice to find your multiple intelligences helper pages. They would help make the concepts more concrete. I haven't heard MI mentioned in a long while and I love it because it helps everyone recognize everyone is smart. On my wish list. See you around. Kathleen Kidpeople Classroom

    1. The sad thing is once I got everything in the room I had to go back to Target to pick up some more things! I might be banned from Target soon. Thank you for stopping by!

  7. Your best year ever list is fabulous! It reminded me of just how hard a regular classroom can be (I did have a regular classroom for a really long time)!. It also made me think about an old homework assignment I tried one year- I had kids invent their own homework. It could be anything they needed to practice and counted as a grade in the subject it applied to. Quite interesting! Thanks for sharing all your posts!

    1. Thanks, Carol! That's a great idea to have them invent their own homework. Something to think about! I love anything that makes them take ownership of what they are doing :)
