Five for Friday Linky Party

I'm so excited to be linking up for my very first Five for Friday with the wonderful Doodle Bugs Teaching.  I've been wanting to join in for some time!

Here's what's been going on in The Owl Teach world this week!

I've been linking up with some of the teach bloggers I so admire this summer for Tell All Tuesdays and the TPT Seller Challenge.  Both assignments this week really had me thinking about my hopes, dreams, and plans for the future as a teacher, TPTer, and blogger.  It was great to really focus in on why I do what I do and my motivation for continuing to do it.  You can read both of my blog posts about my Teacher Bucket List and Dare to Dream challenge!

My little guy and I spent the last week both getting over some sinus and ear infections, so yesterday we finally got to hit the neighborhood pool again.  My little water bug just loves to SWIM, and we both loved being out in the beautiful sunshine.

I read on another teacher blog (so sorry I can't remember who to give them credit) that the summer is the perfect time for teachers to really work on their TPT stores---she said Create and Wait!  I've been working super hard on getting products that I'll use in the upcoming year created and posted.  I finished a Matter SCOOT, Force SCOOT, Energy SCOOT, and I created a BUNDLE!  I'm super proud of these Second Grade Science Scoots!  My kids simply LOVE SCOOT activities, because it gets them up and moving and talking about their learning!

My friend Amber from First Grade Diva Creations spotted me on the front page as the featured teacher author earlier this week!  I was so thankful she spotted me and posted to my Facebook, or I would never have even known!  It was an exciting little Tuesday night discovery!

So I am by nature pretty OCD about a lot of thing.  I like to be organized...but that doesn't always translate to my classroom.  So, I have made a New School Year's Resolution to really get organized and ready for a productive school year.  I started creating these adorable math game labels for my rainbow storage carts.  They turned out just how I wanted them to...but they were a bit of a pill to cut out!  Cute labels were worth it though!

Thanks for reading!  

Hootfully Yours,
