Five for Friday on Saturday afternoon

All summer-long I've had a really hard time remembering what day it is...
It only makes sense I'm linking to Doodlebugs Five for Friday on Saturday afternoon! 

First of all, I blogged a recap of the I Teach K conference here
What a wonderful week and I'm happy to share my experiences with you.
I still need to finish my post about the Tues/Wed/Thur sessions. 
Please, stay tuned.  As they say in Vegas...The best is yet to come!
I bought this old Frank Schaffer poster for a quarter at a yard sale before I went to the conference.   
The copyright says 1989...the first year I taught was fall of '89!

The only way I could see utilizing this poster was to cut each section apart
and then use it for direction icons.  I love these big, bold graphics! 
I really miss those simple Frank Schaffer teacher products.
I worked a little in my yard this week...pulling weeds, trimming bushes, deadheading roses. 
For some reason, I didn't wear my gardening gloves and now I have a nice blister on my thumb.
It just happens to interfere when I'm holding my scissors so I 
guess that huge pile of laminating will have to wait another day or two.
At least the garden produced this for the kitchen counter...

and a few peppers for salsa!
 I shared my Thrifty Spool & Spell over at
Smedley's Kindergarten Smorgasboard for Thrifty Thursday. 
Many of the fine motor preschool activities you find at Goodwill & yard sales
 can be taken to another level of learning.  Just takes a little effort. 
Easily done with some Avery labels or sticker letters and a dab or two of  Modge Podge! 
I have a box full of things like those lacing spools I want to modify 
in order to teach a different skill that what it was originally intended for. 
Maybe I can get a few done this weekend!
Thanks for visiting with me!
