Conferences that is:)
Today was our 2nd Trimester conferences.
We had school until 12.
Then we had conferences from 3-8.
This makes for a loooooong day.
I was lucky all mine were over a little before 7
and I'm off tomorrow.
I plan on working on a few TpT projects I
have going and scheduling a few posts

Spring Time Writing and Labeling Packet Giveaway

Oh my, did this weekend fly by or what!?!
I am not ready to go back to school tomorrow.
I think it has to do with the fact that I have
report cards due tomorrow that will be
given out on Thursday during conferences.
Boy is that going to be a long day.
We will have school until 12 then come
back for conferences from 3-7. 
The good thing is that I have Friday off
so I have a 3 day weekend to look forward too:)
Anyway, I have been working on a new Spring Time!
Writing and Labeling Packet. 
This one is a combination of St. Patrick's Day and
Easter activities.
It's discounted  at my TpT store through this week for only $3. 
It will be going up to $5 next Monday.
Here's a look at all the goodies that are included {63 pages}.
{No religious items in this packet}
Want to win a copy?
Look for the raffelcoper at the end of this post.

Chinese New Year

I know most of you are finished with Chinese New Year.
I'm trying to finish up this next week and then hopefully moving on.
I wanted to show off some of the great little
projects my kiddos have been doing to celebrate.
We made dragon bag puppets!!  This was our favorite so far.


Next we wrote our names in Chinese. 
I used a Chinese name finder to search each of my student's names.
The kiddos did a great job of trying out their Chinese writing.
Nathan's name
Reese's name
On Valentine's Day we made heart giant pandas.
They went perfectly for Valentine's day and our Chinese study.
We also made paper lanterns that are hanging in our classroom. 
I must not of taken a picture of them:(
They turned out really cute too!
We still have a few more things to make and learn
before we move on to Ireland and leprechauns.
I really can't wait to start this because we
always make leprechaun traps.
Have a great relaxing weekend:)

Shoe Tying Tables, What!?!

Have you ever come across something that
another teacher has done and you think,
why couldn't I have thought of that?
Well I do that ALL the time.
The other day I was reading Dr. Jean's blog
{if you're not following her, boy oh boy you should be}
and she shared what another teacher (Ashley Swedell) does to help
her kiddos learn to tie shoes.
That wonderful teacher puts shoes on her tables for her
kiddos to practice on.
How creative it that I tell you.
This was such a great idea I had to try it out.
So I used a pair of old shoes my son can't wear anymore.
And ta-da, instant shoe tying tables.

All my kiddos were so excited. 
They all raced over and had to try them out. 
Don't you love it when something
simple, easy and free works in yourclassroom? 
I sure do!!

Most of my kiddos can tie their shoes but I do still have a
couple that this will be fun and help them too.
Do you think you could use this in you classroom?

Did someone say FREE glasses?

Yep that's right Free eyeglasses or sunglasses. 
Who wouldn't want that!?!
Learn how to get a pair free at the end of my post.
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a company named Firmoo.    They are an online eyeglasses store
that offers customers glasses that start at 8 dollars. They wanted me to try out a pair and then write a review, so here I am. 

I do wear glasses but only once I'm at home.  I wear contacts while I'm at work and out in public but I LOVE sunglasses.  ALL kinds of sunglasses.  So when I was looking for my pair to try I looked at their sunglasses.  Only to bad for me they had already hit their quota for those.  No problem, I headed over to look through their other glasses and boy do they have a lot to choose from.  I found several that I really liked and most had several different color choices too.  
I was really impressed when my glasses came.  They came with the frames, hard case, pouch, key chain screw driver, 2 extra screws, and a cleaning cloth.  It was really nice. 

Ok please keep in mind that I was looking for a pair of frames to make great sunglasses.  That is why  chose big round tortoise frames.  They are going to be amazing sunglasses. 
{Click on my pic to see a close up of my frames.}
The frames are very pretty and sturdy.  They are not some flimsy, easy to break pair that I usually get at the local discount store.  These are great quality frames not cheapo ones. 
Even though I chose to go with the non-prescription frames, Firmoo will make your glasses with your prescription.  I am totally looking into getting another pair with my prescription once I have my eye exam again.
One great thing about Firmoo is that they have a virtual try on feature on their website.  You are able to upload your picture to their site and then virtually try on all their glasses on your own picture.  This is really helpful.  I can remember looking for hours {no kidding} for a pair of glasses that I liked in the store.  With this feature I was able to instantly know if I liked the way the glasses looked on me or not. 
So are you ready for your free pair. 
Click on the yellow link to start your journey with Firmoo.
Another great thing about Firmoo is their first pair free for new customers. 
All you pay is shipping. 
How great is that!?! 

The old opinion that glasses are only necessities for people with vision problems has already gone. Glasses are increasingly becoming a fad and must-have accessories for celebs and fashionistas. Everyday we can spot millions of non prescription glasses wearers and we are constantly fascinated by many noted film stars’ signature non prescription glasses.They instantly upgrade your look of modern,sexy, vintage or geek by wearing different styles of frames.
Any hot glasses/sunglasses /goggles frames you want can be found on Firmoo, and all are available for both prescription lenses and non-prescription lenses. Are you desperate to have a new look? Now here is the chance, Firmoo has launched a First Pair Free Program to people worldwide. You will absolutely fall in love with the excellent quality, affordable prices, fashionable designs, fast delivery and the good service after trying them with paying shipping only! You even can get a refund/exchange if you are not satisfied with them. It's totally Risk free, so why not have a try?

Snow Day!! and Sales

Wow! I can't believe it.  We have a snow day today!
We really didn't get much snow.
It's mostly icy and very cold.
Hey, I'm not complaining this makes this
a 4 day weekend for us now:)
Yep we are off on Monday so everyone that
works the Super Bowl Party can recuperate.
So I plan on cleaning my house :(
Creating some more simple centers :)
Bundling some centers on TpT and TN for the upcoming sales :)
And enjoying my time off :)
I'm pretty happy about all of it except the cleaning house.
I hate that but the Hubs insisted. 
So I might actually do it.
It's still pretty much an optional item for now.
On another note I am super excited about the upcoming sales
at TpT and TN.
I have my wish list ready and will probably
add more.
Both of my stores will be on sale too!!
I really want to bundle my simple centers into units so
I'll be teaching myself how to do that today
and I really want to add that amazing pinterest
button to my pics that everyone has.
I looked it over and couldn't figure out how to do it:(
I don't give up that easily so I'll be working on that too.

TpT will be offering a coupon code for 10% off which will be in addition to the 20% I will take off my products. That means you get 28% off. The reason it is 28% off and not 30% is because TpT takes 10% off the already discounted prices.
The Promo Code will be SUPER.
While your shopping I'd love for you to become a follower
if you aren't already so you will
know when I add new or update my items.

Have a great day!!
