Today I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday (I know I'm a day late). Here are my 5 random things from the week:
#1 I got a new purse (mentioned & pictured in a previous post) and I LOVE it!
#2 Got a HUGE laugh from my mom today. She recently lost her cell phone. We bought her a new one and I added her to my Family Plan to save her some cash. She emailed me today and the subject said "Found phone in a bag of potatoes". I laughed so hard!!! HOW does your phone get in a bag of potatoes?? She said she put the phone in the bag when she was getting out of the car and forgot about it! My mom is 82, but you would never know it if you met her. Aside from some forgetfulness, she's amazing. Full of life. Meets new people where ever she goes. Cooks. Bakes. Everything! I just love her and she makes me laugh.
#3 Visited with my sister this week. She lives about an hour north of me and she is a teacher, too. Her daughter just had a baby and I can't get enough of him!! I mean look at that face!!
#4 Ordered some books today for my classroom for our Chinese New Year celebration. The books will be coming from a wonderful site called Better World Books. I love ordering from them for several reasons: for every book you order they donate a book, free shipping, lots of used inexpensive books, and they have hard to find books. Here are some of the titles I ordered:
These titles link to Amazon because I don't know how to link to Better World yet! LOL!!
#5 I ordered those books (and a few more) because I just finished my product, Celebrating the Symbols of the Chinese New Year. This pack includes 5 activities about the symbols of the celebration. I included a writing page and a reference page for the Chinese zodiac. Your students will learn about the symbols and traditions of this festive holiday!
Link up even though it isn't Friday! :-)
