Here are my 5 randoms from this week:
I had my first sale on Tpt this week. Wahoo!!! I've had some of my free products downloaded, but I actually sold something this week. My addition and subtraction flashcards. I'm so excited that someone was able to use something that I made.

I'm going to Coach Bingo tonight. I'm super excited, 2 of my favorite things. Purses & playing Bingo. I really do love to play Bingo, but with my little guy I don't get to go as often as I'd like. Okay, I actually haven't gone since he was born (2 years ago).
I had my interview yesterday & it was like something I've never experienced. It was like speed dating. I meet with the Supervisor of Special Services & she asked me a questions, then to the Assistant Principal and she asked me a question, then finally to the Principal & she asked me a question. And these were Teaching Interview 101 kinds of questions. Questions that I know how to answer, but I'm really beginning to think I don't interview well. I also had to respond in writing to how I would plan & conduct a guided reading lesson. I feel like the first question was fine, the second question was okay, but of course I thought of things to add after I left. By the time I talked to the Principal I feel like I was tripping over my words, making no sense. I was in tears before I even made it out of the town (I live in the next town over). I cried the whole way home & then cried again later in front of my husband. I'm just frustrated with myself, because if I could make it to the 2nd round, which is teaching a reading lesson to a group of 1st graders, I know I could do a great job. This is what I do everyday. Teaching reading to a small group of 1st graders. Then after that they choose some candidates to interview with elementary administration, then from their some people move on to meet with the Superintendent who makes his recommendation to the board. I've never experiences this type of process, I know it exist, but this is serious, whoever is offered this position completely deserves it after all of this. So now it's just a waiting game, they are suppose to let the candidates know the beginning of next week. Part of me is still hoping that I have a chance. I have amazing letters of recommendation from my Curriculum Supervisor, Principal, Mentor, & the classroom teacher that I do in-class support with. Sorry this part was so long. Moving along now.
12 more days of school & 5 are 1/2 days. Though I think all of next week I will be completing DRA's for 2nd graders. That's okay though, we're almost there. The end is near!!!
And finally, I'm loving these chevron numbers by Blair Turner over at One Lesson at a Time. These cute numbers are actually a freebie on her Facebook page. I found them when I went to download her cute chevron & striped borders from her Tpt store. If you haven't checked her out before, stop by her blog & check her out. Some great ideas happening over there!
I hope everyone has a good weekend!
