Five for Friday 12/7/16: Holly Jolly Edition

 Kacey may be taking a (well-deserved) break from Five for Friday but I'm going to go ahead and share this post anyway! Keep reading to hear about my new blog design, holiday countdowns, and some tips about transitions.

First of all, I'm loving my new look courtesy of Kristen at Chalk and Apples Design! Kristen was super easy to work with, and I'm incredibly happy with the results. If you're looking for a new blog design, I would highly recommend contacting her!

I live with the most bah humbug human on the planet, so my holiday house decorating is kept to a minimum. However, I did manage to annoy him convince him to get the tree up. It's not Christmas without a few Snoopys on the tree!

Speaking of winter break, how much time do you have left? Here's my countdown:

It's going to be a long two weeks, but at least we don't return until January 9th!

I wrote a blog post about taming your classroom transitions:

One of my Insta posts was picked up by We Are Teachers this week: 

I'm a big fan of that account, so that was pretty cool to see!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I wrote a Five for Friday post too before I realized there wasn't going to be one!! Oh well! I'll save it for next week! BTW you've inspired me to make an Instagram account for Chevron and Crayons! I never knew there were so many teacher's on Instagram!
