I'm Still Alive & Freebie

Hi Bloggyland Friends!
WOW! It has been a long few weeks and I have been really busy relaxing with the family.
I'm sure you all have been doing the same things.
I had to clean house for 2 days straight to get it back in order after Christmas.
The sad thing is that if you came to my house right now you would never know that I actually cleaned it.
My kitchen table has stuff all over it and has been that way for so long I can't remember.
Anyway I hope to fix that sometime in the future.

I was a little inspired the other day and I made up some digital papers.
I am completely in love with the first 2 sets.
They are perfect for those Valentine centers I have in mind.
Now if I will just get them done;)

Teachers Inspire Teachers {Dec 8}

WOW what a week or 2 actually.
I was so not with it and realized that I hadn't wrote my Teachers Inspire Teachers post last week.
So I went with the flow and linked up with Farley for her Currently linky party.
But now I'm back with a new teacher to inspire you.
I know she inspires me!
Who is this amazing teacher............................................................................ Rachelle Smith from What the Teacher Wants.
This wonderful teacher is saving my biscuits for the next 2 weeks with her amazing Holidays Around the World.  I am using her pack along with Sarah Cooley's pack for our scrapbook.  This makes such a great keepsake for the kids and parents once we are finished and the kids never forget this adventure.
There is still time to grab that awesome pack!!
Here are a few pictures of our scrapbook.

This book with be our Religion, Reading {along with special stories}and Social Studies for the next 2 weeks.
I know my kiddos are going to be amazed by all the wonderful adventures they will get out of
this unit.  Gingerbread houses and a nativity are just a few activities we will make during our travels.  
Check back to see all our fun-filled adventures!!

Five for Friday {Dec 6}

My random week;)

We wrote letters to Santa telling him why we would be a good host class for an elf.
Most of my kids have an elf on the shelf at home and I know they would love one at school too.
I got this idea from Stephanie Stewart @ Falling Into First.
I finished prepping our Christmas Around the World Scrapbook.
I used a combination of my two most favorite packs.
I used Sarah Cooley's and Rachelle Smith's.
My Kiddos are going to love the next 2 weeks of school.

We had a snow day today!!
This weekend is looking like more snow too.
I just hope we don't get ice:(
After a hard day of playing in the snow we came in and watched some Christmas movies.
{We could only stand being outside for about 15 min.  OK I could only stand being out there that long.  It was COLD!!}

The Phonics page we had earlier this week had us make the word fig.
The kids kept debating on if it was a real or fake word.
I tried telling them about fig newton cookies and they hadn't heard of them so I brought some in and we had an impromptu lesson on figs and combined a little math too;)

Currently December Style

This should be a Teachers Inspire Teachers post but I let time get away from me and didn't have it ready.
But that's OK it will be back next Sunday.
I was a little bit bummed until I realized that it was time for Farley's December Currently.
So without further adieu here is my currently.

Right now my 2 littlest kiddos are playing in the living room.  One is on a tablet and the other is playing with all the Christmas decorations we just put up.

I am loving our real Christmas tree.  We haven't had one in a very long time.  Our fake tree has seen better days and we were going to get another one.  But we decided to give a real tree a try again this year.  I'm really glad we did so far.

I am thinking we must be crazy to have brought another puppy into our house.  Our next door neighbor brought over a puppy yesterday and we ended up keeping it.  This brings our total of dogs to 6!!!!!!!
Walker has a sad story.  He was left in a box along with his mother and 5 other brothers and sisters behind a Save-a-lot store.  We just couldn't pass up that adorable face.  He is about 8 weeks old and is very healthy.  The other dogs don't really care for him but they aren't being mean, just marking their territory:/

I really want and need a new printer for home.  Mine kicked the bucket this week.  It wasn't even a year old!!  I really liked it too when it was working.  It was a Kodak.  Anyone else have trouble with that brand?  I have a hp at school and I love it.  It just didn't do everything that the other one did.

So now that my printer at home doesn't work I really need ink for my school printer.  I'm out and I haven't even printed out centers for this week.  I guess I'll have to improvise tomorrow.

One of my favorite traditions is going to the mall and having a new family ornament made each year.  I have to confess that there are a few years that we didn't make it to the mall to get it and I made the promise last year that I would make sure we got them from now on.  We still need to get this year's ornament.
This is last year's ornament.

On a final note I'm sure you all know by now that TpT is having a Cyber sale Monday and Tuesday.  I just want to remind you that my little store will joining in on that sale too.  Happy shopping!!

Five for Friday {Nov 29}

Here is a little bit of randomness from my week.

We had school on Monday and Tuesday so we rocked these reading centers.

We rocked these math centers too!

We always have our faculty and staff potluck Thanksgiving lunch on Tuesday.
Our principal has room mothers cover our classes so we can all eat together.
It's so nice to spend that time together with out it being a meeting.

My 2 littlest kiddos decided to help me paint their room.
Actually it's Natalee's room but Brilee refuses to sleep in his room.
It's going to be 1 purple wall and 3 pink walls.

I am not an impulsive buyer.  
I will carry something around the store all day and then talk myself out of buying it.
I just couldn't pass this sweatshirt up from Target.
I am so glad I go it.  Super comfy and cut to boot!

My TpT store is on sale today 20% off.
Happy Black Friday!!

And of course don't forget the Big Cyber TpT sale coming up.
I will be participating in that sale also;)

Happy Friday!!
