Saturday Sale!!!

For the rest of the day, all items in my TPT store are 20% off!!!  I've also marked my Hoppy Easter Math Stations down to $3.00 which will make it $2.40 during the sale!!!

I'm literally $5 away from reaching my TPT goal for this quarter.  Now granted, it's small potatoes compared to some, but its a goal that I was hoping to reach!!

I'm officially on Spring Break!!!!  Thank goodness.  We had our spring field trip yesterday, and it was fun.  We had to take backroads to the bowling alley since there was a wreck on the interstate, so by the time we got there I was carsick!!  The kids had lots of fun bowling, then we headed to eat pizza before returning to school to watch a movie.  A huge thanks to our PE teacher for planning a fun trip for our kiddos.  It felt strange to leave on a field trip and not be super stressed over the details--when I said she planned it---she did it all!!!!  When we got back to school, the kids wanted to watch Chestnut again.  If you have never seen this movie, it is a MUST SEE!!!  I've shown it for several years, but this year (the first time I showed it) I had probably 1/3 of them crying during a sad part, then cheering at the end.  They were so cute!!!


This movie is a great one to show at school, but I'm pretty sure you would love it too!!  I've watched it several times, and I still laugh out loud hysterically with my kids, almost cry, and feel joy at the end.  If you've seen this movie, leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts.  As I searched for a picture of the cover, I found that they have rereleased it with the above cute cover--AND--it is only $5 at Walmart.  That was the cheapest price I found online.

Teachers Taking Care of Teachers!


If we don't take care of each other....who will??

Crystal at Kreative in Kinder is organizing a way for teachers to help out the teachers who were affected by the tornados on March 2nd.  Please consider linking up and emailing Crystal to offer your assistance.  There are so many ways to help!  No matter the bureaucracy we are facing, the cutbacks, furloughs...we are blessed to have a classroom to enter, students to teach, and a house to come home to!

Skip Counting Safari Update!

I'm in the process of updating some of my older TpT files.  Today I gave Skip Counting Safari a makeover!!! 



If you have purchased that file in the past, please go redownload--It's much cuter and has two different recording sheets.

I printed it out today, and the strips fit nicely in a Pringles can! :)
