Five For Friday on a Saturday! {Seuss and Book Fair Style!}

Happy Saturday! I'm linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs for a little Five for Friday action... on a Saturday! 

This week we celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America with a week long reading celebration. I had planned to do a post each day with a recap of each day... but then our celebration was cut short though due to snow and cold temps that had our schools closed on Thursday and Friday. You can read about day one of our celebration here and see what we did on Tuesday and Wednesday in this post! :)

Tuesday was all about Fox in Socks! We wore crazy socks, read the book, made a class graph, read the room for rhyming words, found a buddy with a word that rhymes with their word, and made a fox and socks themed snack-- three cheese trees with pink lemonade! :)

It was all kinds of wacky in room 4 for Wacky Wednesday! We wore wacky, mixed up clothes, read the book, did some wacky writing {not pictured}, played wacky spin a word, found a buddy who did all sorts of wacky things, and enjoyed a wacky snack... banana dogs with PB&J! SOOO much fun!

Thursday was a snow day... so I worked on things from home for the Book Fair.

Here is a mini teacher wish list board. The pic was taken before I wrote on it. I made three in all! The teacher comes to the fair and fills out slips for books that they would like to have for their classroom. Parents who come to the fair that would like to donate can pick out a wish list slip and purchase a book for their child's teacher. :)  For this project, I used mini trifold boards from Wal-Mart,  CTP Poppin' Patterns library pockets, Carson Dellosa seaside splash scalloped border, and Carson Dellosa Bubbly Blues cut-outs.

Yesterday I spent the snow day setting up the book fair. I'm so excited for the kids to shop next week! It was my most favorite thing when I was in elementary school. :)

I used Fancy Fish 6" Designer Cut-Outs from CTP and Seaside Splash Cut-Outs from Carson Dellosa throughout the whole library to decorate tables, walls, windows, etc.

I LOVE the border from CTP that I used to decorate the windows! It's the new Painted Palette Ombre Turquoise Scallops Border! I want it in EVERY color!! It's sooo pretty! I'm actually in LOVE with their whole new line and want every single little thing! #teacherproblems!!

For the windows, I also used Seaside Splash Cut-Outs from Carson Dellosa.

Some of the great items we have available!

The spring theme for the Scholastic Book Fair is Under the Sea. As soon as I knew the theme I immediately went to my go to place--CTP-- to check out what I thought I could use to decorate. I also had saw Carson Dellosa's super cute Seaside Splash line and knew it would be perfect! If you're doing an ocean themed book fair too, be sure to check out the things I mentioned! :)

I'm currently working on update to this little oldie, but goodie pack... Here is the new cover. I hope to have it finished by the end of the weekend so we can use it this week before spring break!

Well, that's my Five for Friday... on a Saturday! :) Be sure to link up with Kacey to share your 5 random things! Have a wonderful weekend!!
