For the first time this summer, I'm able to join Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

First up, are you looking for the BEST MARKERS EVER?
Well, these beauties could earn that description.
I used them this summer at a workshop I led for teachers, and I loved the bold, vivid colors.

 They are a bit pricey - I found this pack at Office Max for just under $10.
But, Office Max/Office Depot is running a 25% off sale this weekend (July 30 - August 2), 
so hurry on over and pick up a pack.

Does your district use Words Their Way?
We do, and I've found these pouches to be perfect for storing weekly word sorts.
These are also from Office Max, and these happen to be our school colors - blue and gray!
In the light, the polka dots reflect rainbow colors.
I am looking forward to attending this technology workshop next Tuesday.
More on that in next week's Five for Friday.

Last week our Book Club took a 2-day trip to beautiful Door County, WI.
One of our book club members has a condo in Egg Harbor.
This is what summer mornings are made for - having a cup of coffee or tea while enjoying that view.

This was our view of the sunset later that day outside a favorite restaurant called The Waterfront.
Are you getting pumped for the Olympics??
I created a product for the Winter Olympics 2 years ago and it become one of my best sellers.
So, I revised it and created a similar project for the Summer Olympics in Rio.
Students do independent research on current athletes.
This product includes links to projected medal winners from the U.S.A.
