Five for Friday and a FREEBIE 10.25

I made it! I finally made it on Friday for Five for Friday! That hasn't happened for... geez, I can't remember! Linking up once again with Doodlebugs for this fun linky!

1. We were treated to a wonderful assembly this week. Joel Penton is a former Ohio State football player who travels to schools and visits youth groups throughout the country giving motivational talks about making good decisions and sticking with your commitments. His message is Stand your Ground! My kiddos LOVED him and the young singer he brought with him- Ryan Holliday. They have been talking about these two all week.

2. My sixers finally finished their book trailers. Boy are they good!!!!!! Here are two that I thought I'd share with you.

3. Poor Miss Daisy lost a tooth this week. She is nearly 15 years old, and other than having poor teeth, is in great health. I tried to get her to smile for the camera to show her missing canine, but alas, she was playing Grumpy Cat (as usual).

4. It is my birthday tomorrow (I love my birthday, though I'm getting to where I do not like acknowledging another year passing). My sixers threw a little surprise party for me today; the girls made cupcakes. The best part: they frosted them to match our room colors! LOVE IT and THEM!

Speaking of birthdays... I'm giving away a packet of six Halloween Language Arts SCOOT activities. Tomorrow is the last day to enter the Pin It to Win It giveaway. Stop by this blog post for more details and a chance to win!

5. Finally... a FREEBIE for Friday! I use brag tags, punch cards, and coupons as a reward system for great behavior and academic progress. It works great and costs VERY little... just the price of paper, ink, and laminating supplies (which I get with Amazon gift certificates from my students). This week I made Halloween themed no homework coupons as treats for my students. I'm sharing them here with you. Download them, print them off, and treat your kiddos to an evening free of homework also!
Happy Friday,

    1. You're welcome! Thanks for the birthday wish... I did have a nice weekend... quiet and peaceful. My sixers go wild for no homework coupons. I've got them ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, too! I'll be sharing them on MM soon!

    2. Whoa you are so good at posting all the time! I have become SLACK! I have been reading your posts from the top down and when I saw the photo of Daisy I had to stop and comment :) I hope she's doing ok. I like her grumpy face ;)
