It's Friday!

It's Friday so I'm linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching with for

 I was so excited to find a beach we could take the dog to this week!

Yes, I know....he's spoiled rotten.  

I also spent some time with my little man this week doing various craft projects.  Here we are painting rocks!  I suggested we make pet rocks, but he thought that was too babyish....'cause you know....when you're 8 you're all grown up!  Geez!

Aren't we artists?  Now the question is...what do we do with them?  Maybe we'll add them to our garden or use them as door stops.

Hey, did you hear?  Michael's Craft Store is having a contest and the winner gets a $50 Michael's gift card. It started today!

My name is Julie and I have become addicted to crafting.  Luckily, you can use your school ID to get 15% off at Michael's any time just for being a teacher!

I did manage to get some work done this week too!  I am busy reading 

Lucy Caulkin's books as I learn how to implement a writer's workshop in my classroom.  Since this is only my third year teaching first grade, teaching writing is still fairly new to me so I'm still "learning the ropes."

My goal this summer was to get at least 20 products in my Teacher's Pay Teacher's store.  Tonight I added my 21st

How was your week?  Have you done any crafting?  Have you gone on a vacation? Have you done something you wanted to accomplish this summer?  I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment and say "hello"  :)


  1. WOW! 21! That's a lot. :) I haven't kept track of mine... Also, cute rocks. I like the garden idea.
    Good luck on your first day back! Enjoy those little writers!

    Creativity to the Core

  2. I actually was lucky enough to have training using the Lucy Caulkins series for writer's workshop. It's a lot of information but I love how the books have detailed lesson plans that are easy to follow and implement in your classroom. Good luck!

  3. Oh my gosh!! Congrats on meeting your goal. That's awesome!! 21 products is huge! Hope your B2S sale is awesome :)
