Five for Friday {9/6}

How about a little Five for Friday? 
School started this week. Need I say more, I'm pooped, & I didn't even have any kids this week. I'm a resource teacher & I won't begin picking my kids up for Language Arts until Monday. Am I ready? Absolutely not! But I've been up at 5:30 every day this week, this is so not normal for me. My body & eyelids are screaming at me for getting up so early. 

My building is having a MAJOR technology FAIL! The computer lab is pretty much the only place that can print, but the internet is shaky, so make sure you have your flash drive. I still can't log onto my computer using my login info. I'm getting in on a temporary sign in right now. I don't have a phone or printer & my Smartboard needs to be hooked up. So all in all it makes lesson planning a little tough because I can't print in my room, but I'm making it work & it looks like we'll be kickin' it old school next technology. 
I think I'm going to change my job title from "Teacher" to "Gumby." Is there any other profession that has to be as flexible as us?

Yesterday my supervisor handed me a summer reading project that one of my students completed during extended school year & that's when it clicked that I should probably read those books, so I can grade their projects.
So this weekend I'll be reading the following:
4th grade summer reading
 I've actually never read "Because of Winn-Dixie" or saw the movie.

And I already read this book, it took me about 20 minutes. My poor, low third graders, I'm sure struggled through this.
3rd grade summer reading 
Here are a few pics of my room. I've added some things since I took these last week, but I'll do an official room reveal after I get paid next week. I'm making a trip to Ikea, hopefully they still have those wonderful looking stools that I've seen all over blog land this summer. They will be perfect for my small table & I really want the polka dot rug. Fingers crossed they still have those things.

This past weekend was my cousin's bachelorette party. It was the whole weekend & I'll let the picture below show you what kind of time we had.

First, me with the bride-to-be on the way to Atlantic City.

Now here is her before & after shots. I love this pic so much. Best picture ever!!!!

Amazing...I know! It was a lot fun & felt good to get away for the weekend!
