Five for Friday {9/20}

When I started this blog at the end of the school year, I was only part-time, now this year I'm full time (yay!!!) but I never thought I would become such a bad blogger. Like so bad that I should probably have to sit in bloggy time out, so here's a quick Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching.

1.) I'm still super overwhelmed with everything. I'm trying to get ahead yet I'm still behind. Right now I feel like I'm in survival mode & not teaching the way I want to because I'm trying to stay afloat with all this curriculum & trying to make it work for my kids, who are classified & very below level, like 3rd & 4th graders reading at 1st & 2nd grade reading levels. Plus I'm in a constant state of worriedness because I know my first eval is coming soon since I'm non-tenured.

2.) Here are some pics of my kiddos, on different days, doing some centers.
Reading, with their "special" reading glasses, sorry they're hard to see since I had to cover their eyes.

Making Silly Sentences with Morgan from First Grade Fresh's  Silly Sentences for Work Stations pack

They're having fun making silly sentences & practicing picking out the subject & the predicate.

Having fun practicing recognizing sight words with my Sight Swat game.
3.) Took our little guy down the shore to see the firetrucks (which were already gone by the time we got there) during the Fireman's convention, but we still had a lot of fun walking the boardwalk & taking out little guy on the rides.

This was Labor Day at the annual carnival we go to, he just loves the rides.

4.) My room is finally just about complete & I will have a reveal soon & I'm going to try & blog at least once a week. I've got to get better again, so I can come out of time-out. :)

5.) Ok, it's movie time with the hubby, we're watching World War-Z. Yay! You know I love Zombie (like) movies!!!

Have a great weekend, we all deserve a little R&R!!1


  1. I have been in the same boat as you. I want to blog so much more but have been overwhelmed this beginning of the school year. I'm sure you will settle into a routine once we get through September and into October!

    Happy Weekend!

  2. I feel your pain sister! The only reason I blog each week is to put up my visual lesson plans (which is only because they really help me haha!). Good job trying! We all are :)
