Five for Friday and a Giveaway

HAPPY FRIDAY!!  Today I'm linking up again with the super talented Kacey from Doodle Bugs Teaching for one of my favorite parties, Five for Friday.
Here is a sneak peek at what I have been up to this week.
Shhhh don't tell anyone but I just remembered to switch out the manipulatives in one of my math tubs.  I finally put away the winter counters and put out these fun hearts I found a month ago at the Dollar Tree.  Better late than never right???
I finished up a mini author study with my Kindergarteners on one of my favorite authors Kevin Henkes.  Time to start getting my big author study ready for the Dr. who's name shall not be spoken.
We had five minutes before dismissal so I had my Firsties pair up with a shoulder partner to go over some review words.  
Another one of my FAVORITE bloggers the one and only Reagan from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits is having a linky party called Hall Pass.  Bloggers share a Product, Area, Signal and Sanity idea.  I'm linking up my post on Saturday so I spent some time this week putting together a new TPT Product.  This is my Shake-It and Make-It packet.  I just started doing this with my kids this year and they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it.
Here's another look at how this works in my class.  You can click here to download a preview of this fun packet in my TPT store.  If you check back on Saturday you will see a more detailed description of this product when I post to Reagan's Linky.  If you would like to win a copy of this packet, you can enter the rafflecopter below.

Well I'm off to procrastinate,  
SHINE on everyone
