What a looooooooooooooooong week this has been!
I'm exhausted and felt like a Zombie all day today. I have sooo much work and work and grad school I'm ready to collapse. The only thing keeping me sane these days is reading. I try to read a little every night just clear my mind. Books have always been my best friends and my way of escapism.
I working my way through a series of YA Dystopian novels and read The Hunger Games trilogy, Matched & Crossed, Shatter Me, Divergent, and today I'm starting The Declaration.
These books really get my kids motivated to read and I'm trying to keep current on the "HOT" trends :)
 I saw these 2 pics floating on Facebook today and just HAD to share them with all of you.
It brought a smile to my face and I hope you like them too.

I won a GIVEAWAY!!!

Hip Hip Horray!

My sweet friend Katie over at Adventure of A 6th Grade Teacher

Adventures of a 6th Grade Teacher

hosted a giveaway of her favorite foldable book and I WON IT!!!!!

I am so excited and can't wait to get it!
Make sure to stop by her blog! She is an amazing teacher and has some really great ideas.

For Valentine's Day I gave all of my kids {all 6 classes} chocolate, a HW pass, and taught them how to make these cute origami/foldable corner heart bookmark.
{I found them on Pinterest}
They came out super cute and the kids use them for their DEAR time books, agendas, and workbooks.

There are two variations for this bookmark

We have Monday off for Presidents Day and I cannot express how excited I am for the day off and the chance to catch up a little. 
My poor dog hasn't been to the park in weeks... hopefully he gets to enjoy some outdoors time with me this weekend.

I also hope to get a moment to blog a little too and catch up on my favorite blogs :)

Have a great weekend!!!!

  2. I absolutely love the interactive notebook idea you have under another post. I looked on TpT but I can't find everything. Do you have it all in one file to purchase? If not, what parts do I look for so I can get them all?

  3. Hi there,
    I'm your newest follower! I love your idea of hooking up with other teachers and having the virtual conference. What a great idea! Come visit me - I'm new to blogging and would love your input.
