Five for Friday!

Happy Friday, ya'll! Linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for this weeks highlights. Check out her post to read from more teachers!

I sold my first ever TPT product! Woo!! I started adding my resources a week ago and can't believe I made my first sale!

Joining the Big Heartland Bloggers for our first meet up tomorrow! I can't wait to meet new people and talk about our adventures with TPT and blogging. I'm a newbie, so I'm hoping to learn a lot!
We are finishing up our research on butterflies! They are learning so much and working so hard. Their artwork is turning out beautifully. Each group had a different butterfly. They had to do a report and color one that I traced onto butcher paper.
On Tuesday we wrapped up state testing for the year! I was thrilled! Surprisingly, my students were sad. They actually ENJOYED it! What!?!?! We did a lot of GoNoodle to celebrate!
Everything in our greenhouse is growing beautifully! My kids planted strawberry baskets! I'm thrilled that they are actually growing. These kiddos are better at gardening than their teacher ;)

Hi friends! Welcome to my blog, Literature and Laughter! I'm so excited to dive into this whole blogging world with all the other teacher bloggers out there. :) I'm constantly scouring blogs for ideas to use in my own classroom, so I thought I would share what I do in hopes to inspire some of you. 

I'm currently in my second year of teaching 3rd grade and it's wonderful! Throughout college all I wanted to do was teach kindergarten, but after being with the older ones for a couple years my heart has changed. I love what I do so much that it doesn't feel like work. I enjoy going into my classroom each day and growing with my students as we learn together. 

Thank you so much for visiting! Stop by and say hello, I would love to meet you!
