2.  Have you all heard of "Scentos".  Stephanie asked me to pick some up for her in at Michael's  craft store because right now they are 49 cents there (usually a dollar).  They are super cute and are all scented.  Kids love to sniff their papers after you write a little note or put a smiley face on their paper.  The little things that make kids happy in Primary :) True to teacher style, I totally cleaned that Michael's out.  
By the way... you can follow me on Instagram. Instagram   That's actually starting to be a great way to find out about deals like this when bloggers share them as they find them!  

3.  Don't forget to enter our Play-dough activity giveaway...It ends tonight!  You can win all of our play-doh activities packs (6 in all!!).  Super easy to enter!  Click HERE!  

4.  Whose already working in their classroom for next year?  I tell myself to stay away but I have already arranged my room, put up fabric for bulletin boards and bought my border for boards.  Not to mention taking on a major classroom library overhaul.  It's like a second home... I can't stay away!  And it just keeps getting messier each time I go in evidenced in the photo below!   By the way have you ever looked at a bulletin board at the end of the year and thought..."Why did i think that looked good?'  That red bulletin board is U-G-L-Y and it came down super fast!

5.  You know you are desperate with an overload of lamination to cut when you bribe your friends 5 and 6 year old to help you!  And it all actually got cut out!  Their mom was super happy about the bottle of Sunkist they earned! ;)

Head on over to Doodle Bugs Teaching to link up with "Five for Friday!"


Have a great weekend!
