Well hello there blog! I know, I know, it’s been awhile…
Back to school has been kicking my behind! I’m hoping we get into a routine soon so I can get back to my regularly scheduled activities of watching TV, creating products, and blogging!
I’m so thankful for the currently because it made me give my blog some lovin’ today! Thanks Farley for hosting, as always!!
Listening: I love all the X-Men movies! My husband and I actually had a marathon over the summer. I feel like I’ve seen First Class once a week this summer, but I’m not complaining!
Loving: Please do not laugh, but I was seriously using versions of PowerPoint and Word from when I was still in high school! Did you know that there’s a teacher deal to get the whole Microsoft package for $9.95?! Well, I didn’t…but once I found out I was all over that! I’m also working on upgrading to Adobe Pro – right now I’m doing the trial and I’ll buy it when that’s over. Makes my creating sooo much easier!
Thinking: This happens every time we have a long weekend, and it will continue to happen because I have thoughts of grandeur!! But that’s ok because I really didn’t have that much to do this weekend for school and I did get a lot done – but there’s just always more to do!
Wanting: My husband was out of town (out of the country is more like it!) the whole first week of school. He came back for 4 days and now he’s out of town again until tomorrow. I’m ready for him to be home!!
Needing: I told myself I’d put in the laundry before I started this post (didn’t happen). My grocery list is halfway done and once it’s finished I’ll procrastinate going to the store for another hour or two (least favorite chores!!!)
3 trips: I’m not a “big city” kind of girl but I’ve never been to Boston or Chicago so I’d just like to go once to see what it’s all about!
I’d love to be vacationing in Hawaii right about now! The pictures always look so beautiful!
Australia and New Zealand are on both my list and my husband’s so hopefully we’ll get over there one day!
What's your favorite cereal?? It's hard for me to choose between Lucky Charms and Froot Loops! I totally forgot I made these fun "lucky marshmallow" number cards last year! You can grab them for FREE at the link below.I'll be printing these out to use at home with my kiddo. "Yucky Charms" is one of her favorite cereals 😂 We'll work on one-to-one correspondence to match the marshmallows to the pictures. We'll also work on not eating all the marshmallows until after we finish the activity!➡️ bit.ly/luckynumbercards ... See MoreSee Less

⭐ NEW MONTH ⭐ NEW READING LOG 📚I absolutely loved the start of a new month when teaching because it always meant a fresh reading log in take-home folders. My students always looked forward to their new logs so they could see the new picture they would be coloring for each book they read.I used their monthly reading logs for the Pizza Hut @bookitprogram and also with my classroom reward system. I also let students borrow books who may not have had too many at home. These were always a huge hit with students and families!🔗 bit.ly/readinglogsallyear ... See MoreSee Less
