Work Days, Open House

I think we need to change the term work day to meeting day.  This week I went back and the first day was optional with no meetings.  It was great catching up with others and chatting, having lunch, and doing a few things in my room.  Then Tuesday came, meetings all day.  And next Wednesday...just repeat Tuesday... meetings all day.  The meetings are due to various changes.  Meetings about the school year, trainings for new programs, PLCs, etc.  You understand.  Meetings are a most, I just want to be able to accomplish all the other stuff I need to do in my room.  I want to get ready for 21 smiling faces!  Hopefully, I am closer to that now.  I cant wait to meet my kiddos and their families tonight at Open House.  Here is a quick look at some things in my room.

Happy New Year!

Take a Kiss & Grant a Wish Freebie

I am trying to get everything ready for back to school.  I go back next week, and we have Open House/Meet the Teacher Thursday night.  I made some cuties to help stock up our supplies.  I am printing the sign and putting it in a fun frame.  Then, I am going to add a Hershey's Kiss to each circle.  I will display this on a table in my room. I just hope our class has some of our wishes come true.  I thought I would share it all with you.  Don't forget to give me some feedback and follow me on tpt. Thanks!

Enjoy the Freebie!

Happy B2S 2013!

Finally Finished Giveaway

I have procrastinated long enough!  I may have been thinking if I don't finish it, I don't have to go back.  So not true!  Anyways, my Back to School Literacy & Math Activities is finally finished.  I was almost finished last week with it, but my computer froze and I lost all the math activities.  Needless to say, frustration took place!  I finished the activities last night, and worked on adding it to tpt this morning. Giveaway Time!!!  The first person to guess the day I have to go back to work wins.  I hope everybody has a wonderful B2S 2013! 


Happy 2013!

Carolina Bloggers


What a fun, fabulous, and busy weekend!  This weekend I was able to join a group of fabulous bloggers and stalkers in Greenville, South Carolina for some excitement.  The festivities began in beautiful downtown G' Vegas.  We stayed at the Westin on Main Street. Beautiful! After arriving, we took a stroll down Main Street and did a little shopping.  Friday night we meet-up at the Lazy Goat for a delicious supper.  After a couple hours of munching and trying new things, we walked over to Jack and Diane's, a piano bar.  What fun we had there!  On Saturday morning, after packing the car we headed out to Main Street again.  The area was turned into a Farmer's Market.  Once again, we strolled and did a little shopping.  We meet the rest of the bloggers for lunch at Chicora Alley.  Yummy!  We talked, laughed, and talked some more.  Amanda made adorable name tags and goodie bags for each of us, and Natalie baked scrumptious cupcakes.  After lunch, the group headed out for a scavenger hunt by Ginger.  We all had a great time at the Carolina Bloggers Meet-up.  A special thank you to both Amanda and Ginger for hosting!  Check out all the bloggers that attended.
