February 10, 2013


I stayed off the Internet.  I forgot that I had a husband.  I ignored my PT's warnings that sitting too long at the computer is not good for me.  I didn't take the mound of dry cleaning in (AGAIN . . . sigh).  And, I don't remember if I ate breakfast or lunch yesterday.  However, I DID manage to get all of my ideas into my latest pack and get it posted - just in time for President's Day.  Now that's what I call a weekend!

This is what I sat around doing Friday night and most of Saturday . . . 

Other than finding some cute kids to model this cheese-ball stuff for me . . . oh and that I really do need to get a life . . . I had a stellar time with this collection. Dunno why I did?? But, I did!!  It may have something to do with me being out for surgery 2 of the last 3 Februarys.  I am all jacked up about perfecting some oldies and trying my hand at some new stuff this year.  And the best part is that I WILL BE in the classroom this round.  Hooray :)

Here's a little look-see at some of the goodies inside this pack . . . 

CLICK HERE to learn more about this packet!

This file has much more than just writing crafts.  It also has reading and math centers, a whole class game, bulletin board ideas/signs, and worksheets - all of which align to that all-mighty common core.  I specifically designed this one for first and second graders.  However, I have included multiple templates and game options that allow for use in K and/or maybe even 3rd.  Check out the preview to learn more.  With this said, please note that not everything is pictured in the preview this go around.  It got all messy when I was playing with Picasa and my controlling side had to have some sense of order :)

I am gonna veer off track now and tidy up some biznass that is still unfinished. On Friday/Saturday, I hosted a sweet little contest with some of my dear bloggy buddies and now it's time to select a winner.  So, congrats to . . . drum roll please . . . 

Bravo Cathy (watch your email today)!! A HUGE thanks to everyone who played along with us and one more shout out to the ladies who jumped on board with me . . . I heart ya.


Alright, I am out of here.  The coffee just beeped and my mouth started watering.  Pavlov's Dogs ain't got nuffin' on me when it comes to that first cup of joe!  Oh and I wanted to tell ya that I posted a new freebie in my shop yesterday too (just incase you missed yesterday's post).  It's a sweet little game that your kids will surely love . . .
