Five For Friday Is Back...Plus A GIVEAWAY/Freebie!!

Happy Friday Friends!!,
I am sooooo excited!! Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching is back!! I love being able to share with you the happenings of my week and I have some exciting pictures to share with you this week!
I just adore this awesome NEW button!!
1. My 3D/4D Ultrasound!
I was so excited today, because I got a 3D/4D ultrasound done today!!! I got to meet my little girl up close and she is a beauty. I can't wait to officially meet her!!! 10 more weeks to go...
2. Getting Ready to Go Back to School
Well Monday is officially back to school time for me. I am heading in to get my classroom set up. Good thing though, because check out this back to school pile up on my dining room table...
I think the hubs is about to have a heart attack, but I assured him it will be going with me on Monday morning!! LOL...oh did I mention that my trunk is already full too?!?
3. Back to School Blogger Exchange
I am participating in a back to school blogger exchange that was organized by Covered in Glitter and Glue! I am sending off my package tomorrow to the blogger I was paired up with. It's so exciting to be able to spread some cheer to each other this time of year when we are all stressed out & gearing up to go back to school. Who will be getting this mystery package?!?! :-)
4. Pen Pal Exchange!
I am participating in the Pen Pal Exchange that was organized by sweet Kelley over at Teacher Idea Factory!
I was paired up with Nicole, a teacher from Missouri and we've already corresponded & I can't wait!! I feel like I can talk to her for hours. We are both very excited to get started a few weeks into the school year & we both teach at schools that are very similar. This is a great opportunity for both of us!
5. The Keys to Our Success
I finally finished up my most recent TPT product, The Keys to Our Success! This pack includes 75 award/celebration tags for your students to collect all throughout the year. I am having my students collect them on a keyring to proudly display in the classroom or even on their backpacks. You can even have students collect them on a necklace throughout the year. What I really like about it is that it can be used for ALL students, not just your top shining stars. I like to differentiate to make everyone feel special in our classroom.

Here are some other pictures on how you can display them...
 This pack includes all of the following tags...
Okay it's GIVEAWAY TIME!! I am giving away 2 packs to my wonderful followers. Just enter in Rafflecopter below!! I will pick 2 winners on Monday, the day I return to work (I've got to have some happiness that day & giving this to 2 of you will definitely do the trick!)
