Five for Friday

Five for Friday along the Outer Banks

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! I’m joining Doodlebugs once again to share my top five of the week!
We’re spending our last few days of vacation along the beautiful North Carolina shore. Here’s a picture from the ferry as we were approaching Ocracoke Island and the lighthouse.
Doesn’t every vacation need some teacher shopping? I think so! Before we left the family beach house in South Carolina and headed north, I took a little trip to the local teacher store.
Here’s what I bought. More polka dot border to continue my theme from last year. Another package of popcorn border. I’m sure I have enough for my Word Wall but I have an idea to make a popcorn sight word game with it, too.  Some black & white dotted library pockets. Cute alphabet stickers for the kid’s journals. Game pawns to use with some game boards I’m making.
And, last but not least, the most adorable Pete the Cat puppet you’ve ever seen!
During our trip we’ve found oodles of gorgeous seashells. My favorites are the rolled up ones! I know these will find their way into the sensory tub during my Ocean unit.
Do you like to read at the beach? I hardly ever read just for fun during the school year so I think that’s why I get so absorbed in my books on vacation. I’m not one for keeping up with the latest Top 10 books as you can see. Most of these were popular years ago which is probably why I found them at yard sales and Goodwill! But good reads nonetheless. 
I’ll be home late Sunday.  There will be lots to unpack and laundry to be done but I’m also looking forward to sharing a post with you next week about the Question of the Day!

    I love those shells too! I collected a handful at the beach last time I was there, but I never did anything with them. I must get on that. Enjoy your last days of vacation!
