This week was only... and I say only with a HUGE hint of sarcasm...a 4 day week. I swear it might possibly have been the longest week of my life. I am so happy for Friday, and so happy to link up this week! :)
I've had this recent obsession with pallets, barn wood, and all that goodness, so I made some pallet signs.
Since our Valentine's Day celebration was canceled due to snow days (ice days for us!), we celebrated on Tuesday when we got back to school. I know a lot of people hate the holiday, and think it's all too commercialized, but I absolutely love it. I'm sure it has everything to do with teaching first graders all day, but V-Day is so much fun!!! The kids are always so excited to pass out and go through all their fancy cards.
I made these "You're one in a 'minion' Valentine" treats with twinkies. Thank you Pinterest and the brilliant person who came up with this!
Each blue "tag" is the same weight, so the kids just hang them on the numbers to create an equation on the left side, and then they have to balance it with either a whole number or another equation on the right.
Did I say LOVE? And, less that $20!
I ordered mine on Amazon, but I think you can also get it at school supply stores.
Okay, so this happened, and I just had to share....
I left for work yesterday morning at 7:15. I got home last night at 7:30 after Technology Night at school.
When I walked in the door, this awful smell about knocked me over. Instant headache.
What in the ???
Yeah, I accidentally bumped the gas on my stove "on" when I was making my lunch that morning, and it had been ON ALL DAY! Naturally, I start freaking out, call the gas company, who proceeds to tell me that since I've already located the problem and turned the gas off, there was nothing that could be done but open all the doors and windows (thank goodness it was 74 degrees in GA yesterday) and let it air out.
So, I spent 3 hours on my deck in the semi-dark waiting and praying it would be safe to sleep.
The gas lady said "Oh, honey, natural gas isn't harmful. You'll be fine".
Yeah, uh, ok.
I may be a big ole baby but it really freaked me out.
Talk about a Thank God it's Friday moment this morning.. and a note to self to work on reducing that
big ole' belly that turned on the stove! :)
Lastly, we've been gearing up to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday, so I made some math & literacy centers to go along with our unit...
There are 3 math & 3 literacy centers in the pack.
Here are some pics of it in action...
Thanks to my sweet, amazing friend Angie at Monahan's Monkey Madness for taking these pictures. We are using these next week, so she was kind enough to take some "action shots" for ya! :)
You can check it out at my TpT store by clicking the big picture above! :)
So, that's it for me, friends. Time for this chickadee to put her feet up, plug in to some Netflix, and do a whole lot of nothing! Hope you all enjoy your weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
