Showing Some Love for My Birthday!

I am a planner. I say that to tell you I promise I'm NOT pushing through holidays with this. But I am a planner. Plus I really wanted to show some love to my readers for my birthday today! I might just have hit a new decade .

So... looking forward to a holiday that needs some planning at school I thought we could have a little giveaway to enjoy. I will send 1 lucky winner these goodies below. All you have to do is enter (share if you want an extra entry)!

Plus my store is set on sale for today and tomorrow. Go ahead and start shopping for back to school next week. It'll help you gain that goal of being prepared and ready in the new year!!

I love being on Christmas vacation. I also love my teaching job. But by December we are ALL worn out and need to have a relaxing week or two at home. My kids and I have loved this past week of baking and relaxing. My husband joins us this next week since his company has a shut-down week. It'll be great to have fun all together!

We had an awesome Christmas with family and am completely  blessed. I do have to share that I am super excited about what my husband got me for Christmas:

I am so with this fabulous machine! I liked the Cricut that I have but I hated having to buy more cartridges for it.. which is why I only have 2 and 1 I borrowed from my sister-in-law. I'm much more of a computer girl!

My first project was to label the box I'm going to put my vinyl and supplies in. It was practice, simple, and taught me a lot :)

I'm thinking this will be a new pencil jar when I get back to school next week. If you have gotten a Cameo for Christmas- jump in! It is SO much fun!!

Need an adorable and easy gift?

My coworkers are fantastic!! I love them dearly... *no pun intended* so I wanted them to know how much!! They each L-O-V-E Coke as their daily pick-me-up.. which made these extra cute :)

Rudolph? Is that you?

It has been such a fun week so far!! I am really looking forward to the break but man am I loving the fun activities this week. My students have learned SO much so far!

Monday and Tuesday I spent at the Conference for Georgia Kindergarten teachers. There were a ton of fabulous presenters there including Deedee Wills, Deanna Jump, Mary Amoson, and Jayne Gammons.

Then I came back to school and... WOW. 2 days of subs.. in December.. in Kindergarten. Let's just say our elf Elsa delivered a message to us on Thursday:

The lesson was learned and the whole class was so much better today! We had a great time reviewing what they learned about with the sub. I had left parts of this great Reindeer pack by Amanda Richardson:

I found this great book to go with it to help with facts as well:

They created the interactive book with the sub and we used it as a jumping point for today's writing:

The facts sorting made their writing SO much easier! Many of my students are great writer's and used it just as a reminder of what they had learned about. I put up several special words for them to help out their writing.

Their pieces turned out fantastically!

Add in an adorable reindeer creativity....

It makes for a great wall outside of our door!!

Tomorrow will be all about creating more adorable activities to practice motor skills *wink* *wink* *nudge*nudge*
