This is my second time linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday! It is very exciting, indeed!
I have had a busy and fun last few weeks. Here are five of my recent events...
This is a picture of our family recently going to a small local zoo and amusement park. This kids had fun seeing the animals, riding the train, and playing in a water park. It was nice family day!
I did something completely unexpected the following Friday after school, and surprised the kids with a short getaway to Santa Cruz! I have never surprised the kids like this before, so it was fun to do. If you haven't been to Santa Cruz, there is a boardwalk, ocean, and amusement ride park. These pictures were taken on the boardwalk and playing on the beach.
A few days later, I submitted a page for The New Faces of TpT, and I was selected! I am in the Specialists version, since I my materials focus on Character Education, and my background is in Psychology and Education. I'm learning so much and loving being a TpT newbie! You can download the free e-book Sampler here.
A few days ago, my extraordinarily talented and adorable teenage niece played with her high school marching band. Our family went to the homecoming game and got to see her play. The kids LOVED seeing their niece play and hanging out when it was dark outside!
This event is super exciting and currently taking place. My Teachers Pay Teachers Story Video was chosen as one of the top 15 videos and is featured on TpT's Facebook video page tab! I wrote a blog post about my experience which can be read here. Now, I am in need of daily votes, (since this is a competition), until September 20, 2015. There are only a few days left, and I am behind in votes, so I could really use your help! You can watch my video below, but you have to go to my Facebook page and see the pinned post to vote. Thank you!
