Five for Friday: July 25th

It’s finally Friday (although this doesn't have the same excitement as it does during the school year).  I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday to share what I’ve been up to this week.
First, I am participating in Thriving in 3rd’s First Blogiversary Giveaway. If you haven’t entered yet, you should head over to Lindsey’s blog today to get in on the fun. 
You can win items from many bloggers’ stores along with a TPT gift card, Target gift card, and even a blog design by Lindsey herself. 

I was able to meet with my entire grade level (5 of us) this past Wednesday to discuss our plans for the new school year.  This was our first time meeting the new teacher who will be joining us along with a teacher moving up from 1st grade.  We had a great time, and I am feeling great about how our team will work together this year. 
If you are interested in starting Guided Math in the new school year, you should join in on our book study.  You can catch up with Chapters 1-5 on my blog or any of the participating bloggers.  Then join us on Sunday to discuss Chapter 6.  This is where we will discuss what those Guided Math lessons actually look like.  There will be a lot of useful information.
There will also be a giveaway going on at Adventures in Guided Math starting on Sunday.  You can win a copy of Dr. Nicki’s Problem Solving with Models book for your grade level. These books look awesome!

Finally, Go A’s….our home team, The Oakland Athletics, are at the top of the American League West.  This is my husband and I at last Saturday’s game.
