Five for Friday: 8-21-15

August is the time to get back in the swing of things (ready or not), which means super busy days. Check out what I've been up to this week with Five for Friday...

Virginia is for Teachers! I'm so excited to be a part of a new Virginia collaborative blog. Virginia is for Teachers launched this week. Be sure to check us out and grab some freebies. We'll be hosting giveaways all month. All teachers are welcome to join in the Virginia fun!

New Adventures!
 I'm super excited to be starting a new job in a new district this year. I'll be a Title 1 Reading Specialist. I'm sure I'll find many perks of the new job, but right now I'm pretty excited that my commute will be less than 10 minutes!!!

 New Learning!
Part of my new job will be Reading Recovery. I started my year long training this week. Even though I had to start back a week early and the week was intense, I've learned so much already. My cohort of training colleagues is wonderful and I can't wait to learn and grow with them this year!

New Pens!
I have a Sharpie/Flair obsession. Since I have such a huge stockpile, I SWORE I would not buy any new pens this year. But then I found these limited edition colors that I just had to have...

New Fonts!
We've been gone most of the summer and I haven't really kept up with the TpT/blogging world. Somehow I missed the June Hello Font release!!!! Needless to say, I was super excited when I discovered this today!

My first week back has been busy, but fun. I'm excited for all the new adventures the year will bring. Head to Doodle Bugs Teaching to check out other teacher adventures for the week or link up with your own fun!

Virginia is for Teachers

I'm so excited to be a part of a new collaborative Virginia blog for teachers! Virginia is for Teachers kicked off yesterday. Each day in August we'll be introducing a few blog authors, sharing some freebies, and giving away some gift cards. What a great way to start the Virginia school year off right!
