1. I've had and itch to SHOP lately! It seems like every time I go out I end up with something new for my classroom. This week it was this treasure from Aldi:
Luckily (unluckily?) I've also had the urge to buy some new clothes! Have you ever bought from Mod Cloth? It's my new favourite online store... and the boxes are super cute which makes it all the more fun when the postman drops the package off!
2. Speaking of itches... the travel bug has been bothering me lately, too. I haven't been on a plane in 6 months (I know, I know... poor me!) so I am planning a trip for Chris and I when he gets here in January. I'd love to go to Spain... but I think somewhere closer to home might be more in our price range since he will be a student. Maybe New Zealand? This print has me planning a holiday every time I see it on my bookshelf:
3. We've been all about Christmas in my classroom over the past few weeks! Our History unit centres around the Christmas theme, but it doesn't help that I am a Christmas nut. :) We have done some cute crafts and activities, but none better than this freebie from Doodle Bugs:
Grab your freebie here!
4. Speaking of Christmas freebies, I just posted a letter matching pack in my TpT store!
Go grab Letters for Santa if it will be helpful for you. :)
5. I've only got 6 and a half more days left with this year's kidlets. I say this every year... but I am really going to miss them. What a privilege to spend every day at work with precious children!
Happiest of weekends to you all! I'm off to enjoy the sounds of a thunderstorm as I read everyone's Five for Friday posts. :)
