FIve for Friday! August already!

Well August brings us to Sunday...We always say the last day of school is a HUGE FRIDAY, July is our Saturday and August is our Sunday. Although we still have four weeks before we go back, summer just FLEW by! I have a huge bucket list of things to accomplish that I haven't even started yet. 

We are happy to be linking up with Doodle Bugs for their always wonderful Five for Friday post! They even have an adorable new sign:

So I am going to cheat a little bit and take the pictures from our Instagram account. 

This one is pretty self explanatory! Chopped a TON of hair of last night. It's the shortest it has ever been and it will take some getting used to, but I think I like it. I got a reversed bob. I dyed the bottom chocolate and had high and low highlights put on top. Pretty fun! My hairdresser has been one of my great friends since college, so I trusted her to do whatever she wanted! 

 #2. Robyn and I are both trying out the Homework Club this year. If a student doesn't bring in his/her homework (after a warning) they take their number down. At the end of the month the students who still have their numbers up will stay in the room at lunch time, for a special treat. I am going to keep changing the treats so it will always be new. I have two classes, that's why there are two sets. I think this will be a great homework motivator. There are little buckets hung on the wall, but aren't visible in this picture. That's where the students will keep his/her numbers once they come down. 

 #3. LOVE my new clipboard. I have a few more to do now! I have a class set, but picked up a few extra at the Dollar Tree! Great deal!

#4. I am IN LOVE with my new cursive alphabet from Ladybug's Teacher Files!

#5. We just updated some Character Education posters and added new posters. There are now 13 character traits. Great posters with realistic student expectations! :)

Well that was our week in a nutshell! :)


  1. I love your hair cut Theresa! It's so cute! My best friend just donated a 12 in. ponytail to Locks For Love this must have been the week for it! :o)


  2. AHH! Your hair looks AWESOME! :) Way to take the plunge - You're brave! I think you're going to be really happy with it!

    I *LOVE* your Homework Club magnet board - I think I am definitely going to *steal* that one! I have been on the hunt for an easy-to-manage homework-turn-in reward system (woah that's a lot of hyphens!). Off to the store now to buy my supplies :)

    Joy in the Journey

  3. Your hair looks so cute! The Homework Club is a great idea and the kids will love it! Cute blog. I'm a new follower!

  4. Love the homework club display! I'll keep that idea tucked away in case my class needs to switch things up after the first couple months!
