Five for Friday~October 17

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to give you a quick rundown of my past week...OK maybe it's a compilation of the past two weeks!!  
Last week we had the entire week off for fall break, so the mister and I headed off to Mexico for some much needed R & R.

It's back to reality this week and I'm hosting my first linky party.  I'm looking for IDEAS and FREE products for those early finishers.  Of course we want them to do meaningful activities and not just busy work.  So please, please, please link up and share all your secrets!

I mentioned here that I was working on an interactive Sudoku bulletin board set.  I finally finished it and you can grab it in my TPT store.

My 2nd graders started a new mini-study this week on Presidential Pets.  This is one of my favorites.  I put this study together last year and it's so fun and full of fascinating facts about some REALLY unique pets former presidents had in the White House.  Here's a pic of some word clouds we packed full of facts about some of these pets using Tagxedo. The word clouds are in the shape of animals!  If you haven't tried it...go there NOW.  So easy to use and you can create super impressive products.  The kids love it!!!

If you're curious about some of the most unusual presidential pets, you can find a list here.

I'm so glad it's Friday and love Halloween, so I'm putting my Halloween Creative Writing Station on sale for 20% off all weekend!!

That means you get everything you see here for only $1.20!!!
