What a Week and a Giveaway Soon!

My week was off to a great start when Monday morning a little sweetie showed up to school with these goodies. How thoughtful!!

And then we had a fabulous field trip on Thursday to the zoo. Have you ever seen 60 children sleep for an hour? I have, on the ride back! They were pooped I tell you. And it was precious how they were falling over on each other and doing the head bob.

Then today we had emergency early dismissal due to the crazy weather. It's always mass choas when that happens. Luckily, all my kids got home the right way and I didn't have to sit in the office and call parents. So my weekend got off to an early start! (And I love storms, so it's been nice sitting here listening to the mess outside.)

I've been working on a vocabulary packet for TpT and I'm about ready to post it. I wrote about how I do vocabulary a few weeks ago and I got some sweet comments so I thought I'd try to it out on TpT. I've gone back and included a free download on that post that will go along with the vocabulary packet. Click here to go to that post. (Send me an email if you made one of those sweet comments, I'd love to send you the packet since you inspired me to put it all together).

I also realized that I totally missed hitting 100 followers (how could I?!) and now I'm close to 150. Thanks so so much for following this little blog. I'm not a great writer and I often feel like my ideas are nothing special (but hey, they work for me) so I get really excited every time I have a new follower. I appreciate you for reading, commenting, and sharing all your wonderful blogs too!  I'd like to give away the new vocabulary pack when I get to 150. Click below to get the preview.
Ok- I got it posted on TpT now, by clicking the picture you'll go to TpT but you can still download the free preview there. Let me know what you think, I hope it's helpful!

Thanks again for being such sweet followers and have a great weekend!

  4. I saw your comment about early dismissal- I hope this message finds that you are ok. I have a friend in Alabama whose school was leveled. She is still in the process of finding out how her school families are. My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected!

  5. Beth, thanks for your concern. That was actually about 2 weeks ago when we had some other tornadoes. Thankfully, the area where I live and work was spared from damage the other day. But it's a day I won't soon forget.
