In Loving Memory......

Hey guys, how's it going?

I hope everything is going well with you.

This week, my school family was dealt a

shocking blow, when one of our own

died in a car accident on the way to work.

She was definitely an early bird, driving at 5:20

to work in her classroom before students came.

There was a group of us who went to Louisiana,

to attend the Leader in Me Symposium.

Let me tell you, it was an awful feeling for us,

to be so far away from everyone, in trying to deal with this news.

She was so sweet, so funny......and it's so surreal at this point.

Seeing it on the news was even worse.

Hug your friends and family a little tighter today, 

never forget to let them know what they mean to you.

Her funeral is today, and it's so hard to have to face that, but I know that we will band together

and do what we must, in honor of her. 

Rest in Peace Elaine.....and know that we all love and miss you terribly!!

Oodles of Tech Tips Tuesday: Report Card Comments

Hey guys, how's it going?

This week is seriously something crazy, let me tell ya!

I have a meeting everyday this week, yup, you heard me.

Did I also mention that it seems like February is jam-packed with things to teach,

and it also happens to be the shortest month of the entire year!!!

Anywho, when I moved to Kindergarten from 1st, one thing that I definitely had to 

get used to was writing report card comments. (Yes, K report cards are written)

For older grades, I just went into the system, and selected the one of the comments it already had.

I searched high and low, because after that first round of report cards last year, I decided that I needed

some major help!!!

And wouldn't you know it, ta-da!!

I found it!!

Now I keep this link here on my Symbaloo page (if you want to know more about Symbaloo, 

check out my previous post here). 

This person has comments for all types of scenarios.

I definitely keep a printed copy in my report card binder,

because sometimes I need a little help!!!

Pink Hearts All Around......

Hey guys, how's it going?

We are full swing into Valentine's centers, finally!!!

We didn't get to start until later in the week, because of all of that yucky 

unit benchmark testing we had to do. Eck!!

Here's a little peek at some of our reading centers that we are doing. 

All of these centers can be found in my Cupid is in the Air! pack on TPT.

One of my favorite parts of Valentine's Day is graphing conversation hearts!!

I updated my conversation heart graphing pack, you can get yours for free by clicking on the picture.

Hey guys, how's it going? 

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin'

to show y'all what I got for the Super Sale on TPT this past Sunday!!!

Alright, here we go!

Sorry my pictures are kinda funny, my computer wasn't cooperating, or either I'm just tired!!!

Come on over and link up!


Groundhog Day!!

Hey guys, how's it going?

Since Groundhog Day happens on a Saturday this year (bummer!),

we learned all about shadows for our science unit (even though it was cloudy and rainy all week),

and completed the unit by learning about Groundhog's Day!

We read these lovely books!

Oh, and Reading Rainbow also has a great shadows episode!!

We did some awesome activities as well. 

These wonderful freebies are by Erin Eberhart!!

Hey guys, how's it going?

Oh, and get ready to fill up your shopping carts, I know I am!!


February Currently

Hey guys, how's it going?

I'm linking up with Farley again for this month's Currently.

I tend to watch the same movies over and over's comforting somehow!

All of these premium channels, and I watch the same thing all the time!!

I can't wait until my new washing machine arrives tomorrow!  My old one, and I mean old,

just stopped spinning. Now, it's been slowly going out for a while,

and I've just been holding on, and drying 1 load 2-3 times. 

No more! Ever since I bought it last Sunday, I've been waiting anxiously!

I even refused to wash clothes week (I've got a million in reserve!)

and I'm waiting until I can wash it all in my new baby!! Yeah!!

I really need to just relax and enjoy a day, because I can multi-task like nobody's business!!

And then I find that I'm tired!! I just need to chill!!!

I need for spring to be right around the corner! Alabama has had some crazy weather! 

We've had some type of school delay related to weather for the past 3 weeks now!! Enough!!

I just need a hug. We all need one sometimes!!!

I really don't like people who always have their hand out, but bring nothing to the table.

I mean, like all the time!! I mean, they should really try doing their job and 

bringing something to the table!!

Come on, I know some co-worker's face just popped into your head!!! Umhmmmm!!!

Come on over and link up!!!!!
