Happy Friday: Flash Freebie, Salon Party, Superheroes & more!


Happy Friday everyone. I don't know about you, but I am exhausted. It is about 44* right now and we have 18 days of school left. It just doesn't seem right. This week it hit 80* and now we are back to wearing sweatshirts. The joy of living in New England. Anyways, I am linking up with a few friends today: 

So my five random things from this week and my freebie are #1. Flash Freebie: Check out our awesome Teacher Organizational Binder. If you feel motivated, download it this weekend and it will be free. I haven't finished it yet, so here are the first seven pages to check out. Please, please, please leave me some TPT feedback to let me know what you think. I am super excited to use it next year and we will be putting it together next week. (I'll share pictures of the final product!)

Do you want the perfect teacher binder to organize all of your information at once? Look no further! Not only is this binder functional, fun, and pretty, but it is super useful. Organize all of your information with these lovely teacher binder covers! You may have a binder for each category, or a few major binders with these placed in sheet protectors inside. Either way, an organized teacher is a happy teacher! :-)

Included are SEVEN fun page:
a cover sheet
student data
parent contacts
meeting notes
to do list
student info 

#2: We finished our Superhero themed classroom set, which I am in love with. The file was actually too big to upload to TPT, so we had to split it up into two files. Has that ever happened to any of you? Am I doing something wrong?

#3. We are officially on Instagam!  I finally made a teacher account, so you won't see pictures of our kids constantly. Follow us @PinkadotsElementary   (creative, huh!?) ;)

I will so be taking this Instagram challenge by the Clutter Free Classroom! :)

#4. My class had a hair styling party at indoor recess this week. With the flood warnings booming outside, we've been stuck indoors. I practiced my braiding on my girls. I think I did ten different hair styles and then we emailed the pics to their parents. The girls were so excited. 

#5. We took our annual visit to the State Capitol, Hartford, Connecticut this week. The kids were so well behaved. We were lucky enough to eat lunch outside in a park when the sun was shining. Besides one of my students getting the stomach bug during lunch... the trip was great. Even better was that my class was paired up with Robyn's class for the trip so we all got to go together! :) Unfortunately, because I was busy with the sick kiddo, I skipped out on pictures. 

Have a great Memorial Day weekend. Remember to keep all the true heroes in your thoughts and prayers while you spend time with your family.


  1. So happy to have found your super cute blog!! I can't believe it's 44*! Today was our coolest day in GA in a long time and we were just at 76. Earlier this week? 90!! Ugh. Have a happy Memorial Day! :)
