Five for Friday on Saturday!

Happy Saturday, friends! I am so happy it's Saturday! I'm in my pajamas on the couch with my little man beside me watching a cartoon while he eats breakfast. Life is good! 
 
I have been a bit absent since school started. Without going into much detail, it's been a tough month and will be a challenging year, but I am trying to focus on the positives and not spread any negativity I may be feeling.
 
I work with a great group of ladies who are super sweet. My birthday was this past Thursday and they had cake and fruit for me during our meeting before school started. They also made sure my husband would be home so that I wouldn't be by myself on my birthday. They are sweet teammates! 
Without further ado, here are some of my positives for the week! 
 
{one} I am in the process of grading about 75 narrative essay's (eeekkk!) and I have several GREAT writer's! I love the great vocabulary they are using, the way they capture their readers attention from the introduction, and their descriptive details. I have several very talented writers!
One thing my school uses in a "Grow and Glow" notepad. Glow is where you write a positive about their writing and grow is where you give feedback about how they could grow as a writer.
{two} I am loving my Erin Condren and have been on the lookout for decorative tape and calendar stickers from the Dollar Tree. I finally found them! Every Dollar Tree is sold out of the tape and they have some CUTE designs.
{three} We worked on Grandparent's Day crafts this week and everyone should be receiving theirs in the mail today! I LOVE this cute, simple, and useful gift. I found the original idea HERE.
{four} Although I don't teach Science, my students had a Science project due this week and I thought this one was SO cute so I had to snap and share a picture of it! 
{five} I saved the BEST for last! Yesterday I officially booked our Spring Break trip! Come on April!! 
Have a fabulous weekend!
