Happy New Year SALE!

Happy last day of 2015!  In some ways this year has dragged on for me but in other ways, I can't believe it's already New Year's Eve!  I am definitely looking forward to a fresh start and a new year provides that.  I saw this quote today and I couldn't love this any more.  Last year I felt my focus was off.  I was distracted by a lot of things that, truthfully, brought me down and put me in a negative place.  This upcoming year, I'm making some changes.  I want my story to be a good one.  

To celebrate the new year and a fresh start I am throwing a SALE!  This TPT community has been a big and positive part of the past year and I want to give back!  My entire store is going to be 20% off until Sunday!  Click the picture below to check out my store!  

I also have a FREEBIE!  My kiddos are still loving my handwriting practice pages so I keep making them!  I simply print these pages off on card stock and stick them in dry erase pockets.  I add these to our handwriting center with dry erase markers and the kiddos get fun, needed practice!  Click on the picture below to download this freebie!  


Right now, my girls are getting their own fine motor practice by playing with homemade play dough!  We just love this stuff and it's a staple at both school and home!  You can use it for so many things - spelling sight words, CVC words, first and last name, and addition and subtraction.  Click HERE for a link to my favorite recipe to make your own homemade play dough!  

Enjoy New Year's everyone!  Be safe and happy!

Five for Friday - December 5th

Linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for a little Five for Friday!

Our week started a little rocky with an emergency room visit with my Madilynn. She tripped and fell after bath time, hitting her head on the edge of the bed.  Three hours and two stitches later we got home and I think we've been exhausted ever since! 

Our elf Sparkles arrived this week and we got to visit with Santa!!! We are fully in the Christmas spirit! 

Friday was Grinch Day in Kindergarten! Aren't the ladies I work with fabulous?! We loved dressing up and sharing the Grinch with our students!

Our building is having a door decorating contest this year and let me tell you, the amount of talent we have in our building is amazing!!!! This is not necessarily my strongest area, but I had the help of my fabulous co-worker next door and together we made a Santa and Mrs. Claus minion! Love them!

It's Saturday and I am so grateful...I can feel the crazy in the air.... Looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

December Currently

Linking up tonight for a quick Currently post with Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade!  

Here's what is going on...
Listening - Friday Nights Lights.  This is my current Netflix obsession.  I know...I know...I'm only about nine years behind schedule, but there's something about the south, Kyle Chandler and football I can't get enough of!
Loving - Christmas is my all time favorite season.  It's magic every year!
Thinking - two meetings today and two meetings tomorrow means A LOT on my to do list...
Wanting - remember that to do list?  yea that meant no time for dinner this evening so I grabbed a quick bowl of cereal...a big, juicy burger sounds AMAZING...
Needing - sleep, sleep, and more sleep.  Last night was quite eventful at our house.  My oldest tripped over her towel after bath and hit her head on the bed rail.  We spent three hours in the emergency room and ended up with two stitches.  My poor baby!  She was so brave!  But needless to say...we are all a little tired today...
Real or Faux - faux.  I would LOVE to have a real tree but for now we are happy with our fake one!
