Five for Friday Linkup and Freebie!


I started this week off on Monday with a half-day training on our new math program, "Go Math" by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. I'm excited that we have individual booklets for each student PER CHAPTER!!! Last year we didn't have a math program and we spent a ton of time finding resources online. Have you used the "Go Math" program? If so, how did you like it?

On Wednesday I spent all day at a Dibels training. It was interesting and I was glad for the refresher. Better yet, the district paid us to go since it was on our summer break!! 

After working on this baby for three weeks, taking breaks for days at a time, I FINALLY got this puppy finished! I love word dictionaries! Each week I post five word wall words and have my students either find it and circle it in their word dictionary or write it in on one of the blank lines provided. I also love having it for their writing time. Word dictionaries help reinforce the concept of ABC order and of course, dictionary skills, too!

I made this little Friday Freebie this week, too!

I ended the week with a little fun! The hubs and I went to watch BYU FOOTBALL!!! 
It was a free open-to-the-public scrimmage, but it was FOOTBALL none the less!! 
I cannot get over how TALL these boys look!! They were huge!! And fast!! 
And I got sunburned!
{P.S. I am so excited NFL pre-season started this week!!! Go Steelers!!!}

Happy weekend!!

And remember,
There is Only Love! 


  1. I haven't done Go Math, but I will be interested to see what people say about it! Your products are super cute. :-) And the Steelers?? I don't know about that, but I am excited for football...Go Broncos! ;-)
