Five for Friday SHOUT OUTS and a BTS Sale!

I can't believe it.
This is my LAST Friday of summer vacation!
Staff in-services next week and my new little bundles of joy arrive bright and early on Wednesday!
I worked in my classroom until 11:15 tonight and totally forgot to take pictures... but not to worry.  I am going to do a little video of my new and improved classroom and I promise to share it very, very soon!
To celebrate this Five for Friday, I have some fabulous finds on Teacher Pay Teachers just in time for the big sale this weekend. I am so excited to be joining some FABULOUS Firstie Friends for the big 2 day shopping extravaganza!  
Thank you Haley O'Connor over at My Silly Firsties for the awesome sale poster!
