Five For Friday

Are Fridays rolling around as fast for you as they are for me?  I want, need, hope for the days to go a little slower!  Link up and join the Friday fun with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

cold treat for a hot day

It has been hot, hot, hot here!  A trip to Orange Leaf this past week hit the spot.  A cool treat on a hot day!  I don't like a lot of toppings:  just blackberries and almonds on my coffee and peanut butter.  So good!
I have been very productive since summer school got out.  In case you missed it here is an easy sight word I Have Who Has FREEBIE!  Kids just love those kind of games.

I also just uploaded my Learning My ABCs pack.  Fun matching puzzle activities, My ABC book, Tracing Cards, & Matching Capitals to Lower Case I Have Who Has are included in this pack.  Click either picture to be take to my blog post to read about it and see more pictures if you are a teacher of ABCs.

I finally took some time to shopping!  The dress is one of those maxi dresses.  I haven't had one before.  I am not very tall, so I always worried that it would be too much on me, but I think I am going to like it.  And everyone says Yellow Box has the best flip flops.  So I bought a pair to try them out.  Have you tried the Body Shop body butter?  Great stuff!  

Have you gotten started on the Instagram craze yet?  It is a fun way to visually see what all your friends and followers are up too.  It is quick, easy and fun!  I would love for you to follow me and I can follow you too!  

It has been a quesadilla kind of week for me.  I love quesadillas!  I ate at Ruby Tuesdays this week and had their Santa Fe Chicken Quesadilla.  It was soo good with a chili lime sauce.

I made quesadillas this week too.  Mexican Chicken Wraps. It had chicken, rice, and black beans.  It too was good.

Neither of these food pictures are mine.  It seems that when the food gets there, I forget all about taking a picture and just start eating!  It seems that a lot of my Five for Fridays involve food too!  Not sure what is up with that...Go link up and tell us about your week!

  4. We're expecting a week of 100 degrees and frozen yogurt sounds perfect. I went yesterday and had to leave after digging for change in my car. I didn't think it would help my reputation ( I live in a small town) to give them 200 pennies! So sad!

  5. That yogurt looks delish!! And I loooove quesadillas too!

  6. Lori, I think you could get a bit more yogurt into that dish! Fill it up! :-)
    Thanks for the freebie - I appreciate the font and layout because I like the actual sight words to really stand out (helps the kids who are too overwhelmed with even a few words together). Thought put into the layout on a page makes such a difference!

  11. Janaye, I am having a very good summer so far! Enjoy your's too!

  12. That is too funny, Sandy! You will just have to go back and get that treat!

  13. Thanks for coming by, Jivey! Both the yogurt and the quesadillas were great!

  14. That made me laugh, Susanna! Yes, I could have gotten a bit more yogurt in my cup. But we had just had lunch, so I thought I would be good. I really appreciate your specific feedback on my freebie. That helps me know what is needed. And I agree, the words need to be easily read for a lot of beginning readers. Thank You!!

  15. Thank you Sara!! I hope your students this fall love the game! Thank you so much for leaving me such nice feedback. I really appreciate that!

  16. I love Ruby Tuesdays and always ate there when I lived in Ohio. There isn't around me now. :( It looks like you had a fabulous week!

  17. Erica, I am sorry that you don't have a Ruby Tuesdays close anymore! Thanks for coming by to visit!
