Five for Friday Linky Party

I’m very happy to join my friends from doodlebugsteaching again for the Five for Friday Linky Party. This is a weekly teacher linky party where we post five random things from the past week.

Let’s start in chronological order…

On Monday I came back from an amazing holiday in Stockholm. It was unbelievable! That city is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen and I totally recommend visiting it.

I spent my Wednesday working on TPT products in my hammock. I love getting some quiet time surrounded by trees, rocks, and cute squirrels, don’t you?

 I finally had the time to create some bathroom posters. You can download them for free by clicking here. They might prove useful, especially for those of you who are kindergarten teachers. We all know how kids “forget” to wash their hands, use soap, or flush.

I went to work today so I can finish creating the charts and our new morning circle board. Here’s a photo. :) I will post more throughout the year, when we start using the flashcards and resources.

Our yard used to be very boring – with just a couple of sandboxes, benches, a toy box, and a small play house. But today my colleagues (R. and T., thanks for a fun day!) and I painted the sandbox and the steps. The steps can now be used in so many ways: we can play colour and shape recognition games, learn about patterns, or just sit down and sing songs on our own shape. We also plan to paint a caterpillar with numbers on it on the wall.

That’s all for now. I’ll start work next Monday, so next week will be an exciting one. Have a nice weekend!


  1. Love your paint job - how clever! (I can't decide if I want to balance walk on the edge of the sandbox or drive tiny cars around it.)

  2. The kids used to balance on the edge, but let's see if they'll prefer using cars now that they have a road. We will also paint zigzag and curved lines on the pavement for the kids to balance on. :)
