Five for Friday!

Five for Friday is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week and on your blog. Check out the linky party at Doodle Bugs Teaching.

Get to Know Your Class SCOOT

I was creating a game for my upcoming class to get to know them a little better & from their own perspective.  I wanted to know what they liked about their class, what they'd like to change, and so on.  Then I realised that this would be a good "Back to School" activity for any class!  It's up on my TPT Store!

FOMO TPT Vegas '15 & Periscope App

The ONLY downside to moving to Australia is trying to go to the TPT Vegas 2015 Conference would cost the ticket times 1,000! $$$ Not enough time off to justify spending that money to go back to the USA, especially since I would have time to visit my family in Florida.  I WISH I could go, BUT this Periscope App has been SO AWESOME! I'm slightly obsessed!  I'm loving all the videos and chance to chat with the teachers via messages.  If you're on Persicope, find me: @FishingForEd 

Australian Teachers Facebook Page Reaches 1,000+ Likes!

I'm so excited!  Australian Teachers Facebook Page reached 1,000+ Likes and we're hosting a giveaway to celebrate this milestone!  (We're each offering a product from our TPT Store, to find out more information: http://australianteachers.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/1000-facebook-likes-giveaway.html and it'll direct you to the post on Facebook.)

Nespresso Machine

We just got back from the city and bought this little baby!  I'm not a big coffee connoisseur, but my bf is picky about his coffee (a bit) and I'm all about something quick and simple.  This machine is AMAZING! I love how it "steams" the milk!  Yummy too!  

Organising Materials for My New Class

I've been collecting our Pringles cans because #1 we don't get them often because they're ridiculously expensive here in Australia, but they were 1/2 off and #2 they're perfect for the "I CAN..." activities from One Stop Teacher Shop!  Love this activity for my maths block!


  1. Stephanie,

    I have really loved watching TPT stuff via Periscope too. I am not on periscope, but maybe I should be :). I am new to the blogging world and been having fun joining in on all the link ups!

  2. Yay for IG! I found your blog & Facebook page. :) I am glad you got some Australian bloggers in your #teachertribe. I would TOTALLY love if TPT offered some sort of online conference ticket for those of us who could not make it.

    Lovely Literacy and More

  3. I love your Pringles can idea! So smart and cute! I must find a way to incorporate that into my room this year. And I am loving your blog design! It's so cheerful!

    Live, Laugh, Love Second

  4. I am so glad I found Periscope, it's been such a great way to get a glimpse into what's going on in Vegas!! I even accepted the #periscopeteacherchallenge, aack!! I love your request for online tickets to watch what's happening for those that can't be there! I can't imagine the pretty penny it would be to come all the way from Australia!! Kudos for your Facebook page milestone, I can't wait to learn more about your celebration!!
    Thank you so much for sharing your 5 with us, I had a great time getting to read more about you! I hope you have an amazing weekend!!
