Five for Friday




If you missed it, check out yesterday's post about this amazing planner by A Modern Teacher and you could win one for you AND a friend!



I felt like my list this week was never ending! But for the most part I am done, just thanking God this week is finally over! LONGEST WEEK EVER!


 

We've been thinking about and brainstorming ideas for Mother's Day. This is an oldy, but goody. I'm thinking we will be pulling these out this year! Have I ever mentioned how much paint FREAKS ME OUT!?!?

 

And these were printed today and examples are ready for Monday! Can't wait to see how they turn out this year for our mommies, aunties, and grandmas!





 Sidenote, but totally awesome at the same time.... TPT mentioned me on twitter today! I love this teaching social media community and thank all of you for everything I learn from y'all!

A Modern Teacher Planner GIVEAWAY!


Y'all I'm so excited! One of my besties, April from A Modern Teacher, has the CUTEST teacher planners! I've already printed mine and I'm slowly getting it put together for next year.

A Modern Teacher

Check out her Happy Day Planner! It's so bright and cheerful, something everyone will be asking you about at the next staff meeting!


The possibilities are endless! I love that it can be as simple as print and go, or you can format everything on the computer and bind it! I chose to use a binder with sheet protectors this year. 


Chosing to print out my planner and put each of my calendars in sheet protectors allows me to write with vis-à-vis. This makes a easy and editable that is as flexible as my schedule that changes day to day. 


Y'all this planner is amazing and includes so many amazing ideas! I have used her sticky notes sheet for a while now and it's pretty much my best friend! I have one in my planner and one beside my computer at school! It helps me organize my obsession (post-its)!



I encourage you to check out her huge variety of planners! (26 in her store!!)

The best part about all of this?? 
April has given me the chance to give 1 2 of them away! (you and your bestie!)                                                    
a Rafflecopter giveaway
You have one week to enter!
Good luck!!

A-Z Animal Craftivities and Writing Prompts {Hump Day Highlight}

Here we are again. It's Wednesday and another Hump Day Highlight! I hope you'll not only check out what we are up to in my classroom, but you'll link up to show us what you are up to in yours!
Tomorrow for Dr. Seuss Week we are celebrating "Oh, the Places You'll Go" and "Put Me in the Zoo"! Students are dressing as what they want to be when they grow up, so why not pull out our Zoo Keeper Applications and Animal Craftivities??

Is it already MARCH!?



I'm joining Farley for her March currently!!

So how loud must the tv be for a man to hear it?!?!

Although I love the snow... enough is enough already! The snow and cold have had  their days, now I would like spring to come. Thank you very much mother nature!

I can't believe it's March already!! But part of that may be partially due to....

Having so much fun watching this girl grow up! But can't time slow down? I mean she's already trying to be independent. I know everyone tells you how fast it really goes, but I mean REALLY!?!

I'm totally needing an extra day in my weeks lately. Or maybe a clone would be acceptable. I need one person just to get all the odds and ends jobs done, and the other to enjoy life lol

-Spring Break-
Ours is at the end of the month and I'm a planner, but with that being said... I HAVE NO PLAN! It kinda feels great! 

The only plan I have is to plan out some blogs... mainly my weekly posts for hump day highlight! Anyone interested in joining me on Wednesdays to highlight what they are up to in their classroom or in their office creating?!
