Five for Friday!

I'm very excited to be linking up for the very first time with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday (even though it's Saturday already here). :)

1. I finally found some cute bugs to use in the 'Gone Buggy' game I pinned from Kindergarten Kindergarten.  The kidlets played it in Maths groups and L-O-V-E-D it!

2. This little man decided to wear my playground duty hat back from lunch.  It looked so cute on him.  It's the moments when my kidlets make me giggle that make teaching Prep so fun!

3. Notice something missing?  My last job on Friday afternoon was to pop these number posters on the wall... and the laminator ate number 9!  :(

4. I had to drive down the highway to get back to Brisbane for the weekend, and this little mishap made the normally 55 minute journey take over an hour and a half.  Sigh.  Luckily there was no one injured - just a lot of cars all over the road.  I can't tell you how exhausted I was when I finally got home!

(Please ignore the fuel consumption sticker still on my car... I keep forgetting to peel it off!)

 5. Is there anything better than Pinterest and 'Say Yes to the Dress' on a Friday night? :)

Happy Weekend everyone!



  1. I didn't realize you were not from the US, until I read 'fuel-consumption' sticker. Haha - My first thought "Definitely not a US blogger...:)" I found you through 5 for Friday and am glad I did.

  2. Hi Catherine! I'm in Australia so will definitely use a few terms that are different from the US/Canada bloggers. :)

  3. I love your 'Gone Buggy' game - I have those exact same bugs sitting in my bits and pieces box. I've been playing a similar game but with little laminated lolly images and the kids love it! I have a feeling they will go nuts for the bugs though! Thanks for the awesome idea =)

    1. Let me know if you want me to email you the instructions, jars and pocket dice inserts that I use. Nothing fancy but will save you a few minutes making them yourself. :)

      I can see my kids loving the lolly version too!!

  4. Hi, love your blog. I am also an Aussie blogger and grew up in Queensland but now live in Victoria. I am teaching prep too.


    1. Hi Paula,
      I follow your blog and love to read your ideas. It's great to see what goes on in other Aussie Prep classes!
