Five for "Teacher Appreciation" Friday!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week my peeps!! 

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her fabulous Five for Friday Weekly Linky Party.  Yay! What a fun week to share 5 random things!

Teacher Appreciation Week was amazing!  I have the best PTA!  They are thoughtful throughout the year, but they ALWAYS out do themselves during this special week. 

Not only do I have the best PTA, I have the best room mom.  She's amazing!  This is what I came to work to on Monday morning.  My class knows me so well.  Two of my most favorite things .... sports and tech stuff!  Perfection!

 I had to include a picture of my coworker's "Sweet as Can Be" door as well.  Adorable!

 Flowers! Supplies! Treats! Food!  I was completely spoiled this week.  Yummy cupcakes, new gel pens, post-its, colored paper, wipes, my favorite Mr. Sketch Smelly markers, and a fresh flower lei!!! So sweet!

Favorite Day!  Today was favorite day where my students brought in all my favorites.  They gave me this beautiful basket filled with gift cards to my favorite stores and goodies.  Beautiful!!

 Mother's Day is right around the corner!  My students have been busy, busy, busy these past few weeks.

First, they made a Mother's Day card.  This can be found in my TPT store ... Sweet as Lemonade: Mother's Day Crafty Card. 

 After the cards were made, I recorded my students' voices reading their cards aloud.  Vocaroo is an amazing website that lets you create a QR code linked to an audio recording.  My students' voices sound so sweet sharing special thoughts and memories about their moms.  Adorable!!!

Then, my students created a watercolor drawing of a lemonade stand.  These came out super cute!  I took pictures of my students holding a mason jar filled with lemonade.  I cut and glued their picture on their artwork.  I also glued their audio recording QR code in their cards and on the back of their artwork.

Finally, I updated one of my first products this week ... Parts of Speech Mini Posters & Sorting Game.  To celebrate the end of Teacher Appreciation Week, this newly revised product will be FREE in my TPT store ALL day today (Friday, May 9).  Enjoy my teacher friends!!!

Even though we have the hardest job in the world, we have the best job.  I appreciate all of you.  You inspire and challenge me.  I love our blogging world.  It keeps me current and passionate about what I do.  Happy Happy Happy Teacher Appreciation! I hope your week was as GREAT as mine!
