I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.

What a week! Personally and at work this week has been an up and down roller coaster. On Monday, I headed back to work. I volunteer along with a couple of the other ECSE teachers, speech paths and social workers to screen the 3 and 4 year olds in the area. We initially do a brigance screener and if we hear speech issues or if the kids are at the cut off score then we ask the parents if we can give them further speech and language testing which can qualify them for ECSE or itinerant speech. The week started off calm, but towards the end of the week we had lots of kids going for further testing, which means lots more paperwork to fill out. So today and Monday we tackle writing up all the IEPs and METs. There are probably about 75 kids or so that we need to write up IEPs for. On Monday, I also found out that my husband got laid off. Let me say I am VERY type A so I initially panicked, but I have now calmed down and realize I need to take one day at a time. I don't want to cause him or myself any extra stress. Fortunately, having screeners this week has helped to keep my mind off of all of this. Now on to five random things from this week.

1. I got my class list. I have 15 students returning this year and the new students on my list look like they are going to be sweet kids from what I have heard so that is exciting.

2. Last weekend we went away for a long weekend to Cincinnati and Dayton, OH. It was a lot of fun. We saw lots of planes, trains, and animals.

3. I finally joined our local library. I use to go to the library all the time and then I don't really know why, but it just stopped. I think it is just because of work and school the last few years and of course Ethan. So Ethan and I went to our local library and got a library card.

4. Tonight I am going to be writing the names on all of my nameplates, locker magnets, etc of my students...a super exciting Friday I know.

5. I finished a BBQ themed unit that you can check out on tpt


or Teacher's Notebook.

Have a great weekend!

Have a great Monday!

Where did the summer go?! I am heading back into work tomorrow. Yikes! Fortunately, I get to kind of ease into it. We have preschool screeners this week and then we have to write up IEPs and METs for the kiddos that qualify or are tested for ECSE. It is optional, but I like meeting with the kids and getting an idea of who may be in my class this coming school year.

We went on vacation this past week and it was definitely needed. We did a lot of day trips or mini vacations this summer, but not any with my husband because of work so this was definitely needed for us as a family. We went to Cincinnati and Dayton. It was a planes, trains, and animals vacation!  We went to the Cincinnati Zoo (definitely recommend!), National Air Force Museum, Cincinnati's Natural and Science Museum, Newport Aquarium, and a few other things. It was very relaxing and technology free for the most part.

Well, since getting home and getting some errands done before the work week starts I have been adding some items to my tpt wishlist that I will be purchasing very shortly here. I am having tpt sale as well. Make sure to check out my store here.

Happy Shopping and if you are heading back to work tomorrow good luck!! :)
