Five for Friday (on Saturday)
Hello!  I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching's Five for Friday!  Here's a recap of my first official week of summer break!

 Last weekend, I decided to try my hand at making clipart.  I played around on PowerPoint and created a few different frames and borders.  I've put them into my TpT store for free.  If you're interested, click on the images below and you'll be redirected to the download page!

I started my summer job yesterday.  For the past couple summers, I have subbed at a local daycare.  It's great to have this job for summer!  I'm only working part time, and it's a lot of fun to see younger kids learning about the world for the first time.  The centre I work for only has children up to 5 years old, so every day is definitely challenging, but I learn a lot about myself and about kids while I'm there.  My nephew, Caleb, is also a student at the centre, and I love spending as much time as I can with him!  ("Auntie, are you going to be my teacher today?")

If you are in the Victoria/Langford, BC area and are looking for daycare for your child, visit or follow them on Facebook here!

I saw a Pinterest post about making mini-books, and my creative side took over!  I made a template for my new Grade 4/5 class for September to introduce themselves!  I'm planning to have each of them make a "Me Book" and post them up on a "Meet Our Class" bulletin board! 

You can get the instructions for this book here!

I have been spending so much time this week with my nephew, Caleb!  Tuesday was Canada Day, and we went to Fort Rodd Hill to celebrate.  On Wednesdays, I always have dinner with my parents, sister, and Caleb, and this week was no different!  On Thursday, my sister and I took him out of daycare early and we went swimming at Matheson Lake (the water was deliciously warm, but the wind and the beach were freezing!  We had to hide under the water to keep warm!) Yesterday, I got to spend the whole day with him at the daycare!  I'm a happy Auntie - 4 days in a row!

I have also been spending some much needed time alone, relaxing!  I started reading "Someday Someday, Maybe" by Lauren Graham yesterday and found some time to indulge at the beach!

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. I think it's great that you made your own clipart. I've often wondered how easy it is. Your nephew is very adorable.
