An Amazing Little Giveaway

Have you seen these great new markers?

They are so pretty and glittery in real life! My daughter had to do a 100 things poster for the 100th day in pre-k. Her poster turned out SO well!

She used the markers to add some 'pizzazz' to her picture with sparkly grass and an especially shiny sun.

Since she enjoyed the markers SO much, I thought someone out there might enjoy a pack of them too! Enter below to win your own pack of Glitter Markers!
Tell me which one you follow me on.

What I Want to Wear Wednesday

This really is my favorite day of the week! #1- It's HUMP day! #2- I get to go back and look through all the pretty outfits I've seen on PinterEst and share them with YOU!

I love the preppy feel to this outfit while it's still very casual. I'm totally not sure if I could pull off white jeans AND keep them clean!

Grey long sweater, black blouse, jeans bracelet, hand bag and wrist watch for ladies

This looks so, so,so cozy and comfy for late spring or fall nights. I really want this for later on this spring.
This girl is my inspiration.

Blazers are classy.. if they are not done in an 80's-I-want-shoulder-pads kind of way. I love this one and others like it because it has a slimming effect (I need that) and looks stylish.

Open Face Side Zip North Face Hoodie

Comfort. Cozy. Off centered zipper. Totally want this for recess duty!
Navy pants and green print sweater. Casual everyday or work attire.
Something about geometrical designs on a sweater... it grabs me!

outfit layout \ ootd \ red jeans \ polka dots \ tory burch reva flats \ classic \ preppy \ teacher clothes
Be still my heart! I am actually wearing a similar outfit today. I have on my flats and then the layered sweater/button up/statement necklace... Totally fab!

So, what do you want to wear?

Life Science Freebie

I'm linking up with Teach Junkie for Teaching Idea Tuesday:

Day 1 back with the kids is a go... and I made it an easy one on them and on me :) I started off our science with an easy brain storm session to answer the question: What is an organism?

Not too bad so far right?

Adding in our vocabulary for this unit was a good way to finish out this class period. My students are so tired right now that just working on finding vocab and getting familiar with the new terminology is perfect.

Need your own vocab sheet really quickly? Grab mine as a download!

Work Day Tomorrow... But Today?

Tomorrow. Tomorrow we return. Oh... that dreaded statement. Honestly, my own personal kids could do with a break from me to be exact. So, how am I spending my last day of freedom before heading back?

Total lounge mode at the moment! We are having friends over tonight as my husband has been smoking a boston butt in the electric smoker since yesterday... ooohhhhh yeah!

This was yesterday at about 2:00 before it went in. I am so excited to veg out with our friends.. and put off lesson planning for a liiitttlllee bit longer. That's what tomorrow morning before meetings is for :)

What are you doing on your last day?

Getting Organized for the New Year

We are all after the same thing at New Year's- out with the old and in with the new. It comes from receiving things at Christmas and making room for them, the idea of a fresh start, and setting resolutions.  With all that going on, we teachers tend to think about how we can transfer that from ourselves and our homes to our classrooms. With that in mind, I have been looking at Pinterest all week for awesome new ideas on how to organize in my classroom! Like everyone else, I have several small problem areas that are making me want to reorganize and fix them.

These are a few of my favorites that you might want to check out before heading back to school next week:

What are you going to be improving when you head back?

5 for Friday with Doodle Bugs

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday.. The top 5 things from my week!

I'm super excited to share a quick catch up of my week (just in case you missed out!). Lots of fun things happened this week... with the exception of getting the flu and being stuck on the couch. At least the blog happenings were fun!

Reflecting on my year has been fun but looking forward to the new year is a blast too! I linked up with Farley for January's Currently.

I brought What I Want to Wear Wednesday back. I'm so excited about looking at Pinterest and finding new ideas. Loving the new gingham that is popping up everywhere!

It was my birthday! I celebrated with a sale.. and opening my first pair of Teiks from my amazing husband!!

I'm beginning my Slim Down Saturdays with Teaching with a Touch of Pixie.
