Five for Friday

Yay for Friday!
 It's a field trip Friday for me (y'all know, the best kind of Friday! *said in a sarcastic voice*
9 days left people! 9 days! How many more days do you have? I'd love to hear!

Here's my 5 for Friday!

{1}
Last weekend I finished Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson. I LOVED this book, y'all! I was so excited to find out that the movie was on Netflix, so I quickly watched it after finishing the book and oh my goodness I was disappointed! The book was SO MUCH BETTER than the movie! So much better! If you haven't read this book, definitely put it on the summer must read list!

I just love my back porch right now :) It needs painting, but it's coming together! Reese is enjoying it, too! :)

I'm getting tables next year and I am so excited! 4 of them arrived this week and I'm still missing one. Now if I can just get the chairs I'll be in business!

I was out sick Monday and came back to school to find these pretty flowers and a stack of finished books. I could not be prouder of my kids and how well they have done with independent reading, especially right now when summer mode has kicked in! We are reading some great books and I can't wait to share with y'all some of our favorites. Be sure and check back next week! :)

I'm starting to prepare for our Readers' Choice Awards next week. Click here to read more about that! :) 

Be sure and link up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday!

  1. I really enjoyed that book, too...maybe I'll skip the movie! Your porch looks great! We still have 17.5 to go, so I'm very jealous of all you single-digit people! ;)

  3. So envious of your porch! I have such memories of our family's front porch as a kid. I wish I could get mine in order so I could sit out there and read all summer! Maybe someday! Speaking of reading, that book looks goooooooood! I must check it out.

    1. Yes! I always loved sitting on the front porch at my grandparents, so I knew I wanted a cozy space at my house. And yes! You must read Before I Go to Sleep! Sooo good!

    2. I like the ideas of the tables too! Do the fifth graders have trouble reaching the table?

  4. May I ask where you got your tables and how much they were? Looking into different types of seating next year, but sadly the funds are pretty low. Your classroom always looks so inviting!

    1. I bought them at Sam's Club. They were $50 each. Another teacher at my school bought them last summer and she said it worked out really well for her class, so I'm excited! :)
