Five for Friday!


It's Friday! :) What a busy week this week!! Here's my 5!

Started my FB page this week for my blog. You can check it out here---Mrs. Thigpen's Kindergarten FB page. Be sure to LIKE the page while you are there. It's a work in progress but I hope to offer up Freebies for Fans and whatnot. Maybe even do some FB Fan Freebie hops with some other bloggers who might be interest!? Any takers?

And don't forget to follow me on Blog Lovin' since all this other stuff with Google Reader is going down. Click on the button to the right -------> to follow me!!

Relived my youth at the New Kids on the Block concert with my two friends! LOL. It was really good but it kinda makes me feel a little old, especially when they kept saying we've been doing this for 25 years and we just thank you for following us this long! Oh wow...I would've been 6! And I remember singing on the back porch with my sister and neighborhood friends all of their songs, like we were at a concert. Those were the days.....
 I'm in the middle. Blurry.

I finished up two packs--Number Puzzles and Circus Literacy & Math Pack. They are now up for grabs at my TN shop and TPT store. 

Numbers Puzzle Pack goes up to the number 20. Click on the top picture to check it out.

This pack has 75 pages of activities. Here are just a few examples.


 Jessica over at Literacy Spark is having a 200 follower giveaway that I'm lucky to be a part of! Lots of awesome things that she and over 20 bloggers are offering up. Be sure to check it out!!

I have already finished 3 books this week that I check out from the library. It's been so nice to just lay around and read. Now if only I can finish those journal reflections for grad school.....

 Not too much going on this week. Hope to finish up some more goodies for Manic Monday freebies and possibly some other stuff!

The first two people to leave a comment with their email will win the Number Puzzles Pack.


  1. I don't know if I've told you yet, but your blog is so super cute. I just love it! And your FIVE is perfect. I love NKOTB, but haven't been to see them yet. I watch Donnie on Blue Bloods,and all I can see is "The Right Stuff". lol :)

    1. Hahah that song does get stuck doesn't it?!
      Thanks for liking the blog layout, I did it all and have no idea how I figured it out! LOL It's a learning game! :)

  2. I love the "Keep Calm" poster! Thanks!

  3. Everything is so cute! How did you do the text over the picture? I keep trying but I can't figure it out.

    1. I use my google photos to edit my pics just because that's where my pics are. Once your picture is uploaded, just edit, add text and there it is.
      You can also insert a picture into ppt, add a text box and do the same.
      If you still can't figure it out let me know and I can send you some screen shots in an email. Hope this helps!

  4. Oh I'm so jealous! I thought NKTB were so hot! I even got to see them in concert when they were in their "prime!" Ha, Ha, Ha! Journal reviews, sounds fun!

  5. I remember going to a slumber party when I was little and one of the girls had a NKOTB sleeping bag, we were all sooooooooo jealous! LOL So glad I found your blog, I'm your newest follower.
