Spell It Out! Spelling Homework Menu

Hi Friends! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I know I am!! I had "one of those weeks" and Hubs is off the whole weekend so it has been so nice to just sit home and relax with him! We even went on a dinner and movie date tonight! It was wonderful!!

Anyhoo I have been spending all some of my spare time working on getting more products on my TpT store and have finally posted my next product!


My Spelling Homework Menu packet is up! I cannot tell you how much my firsties LOVE this packet! They love being able to choose their own homework each night, and it makes them more excited about actually doing homework! :) Here are a few samples of what you will find in this packet:

I hope you all have a FABULOUS finish to your weekend, and stay tuned this week for more products! :)
Much love,

Superbowl, Sales, and Currently February

Happy Super Bowl, Friends! I'm up bright and early on a Sunday morning, and I actually feel GREAT! The hubby and I are having our first  little "party" as a married couple at our apartment today, and I couldn't be more excited! It's just a small get together with parents, siblings, and a few friends, but I love attending these sorts of things so I am very excited to finally be hosting one!
That being said, this is going to be a short post, so that I can finish getting things ready!

I'm sure you're all getting geared up for all the big TpT sales today, I know I am! I may be entertaining, but I have already warned everyone that once the food is out and the game is on, I will be disappearing for a while to do some serious shopping! There are so many great sales going on from some EXTREMELY talented ladies, so we are all guaranteed to snag some GREAT products for excellent prices! :)

Speaking of TpT, I still have TWO more copies of my Groundhog's Day unit to give away! I am working on a few other products at the moment, and hope to have them posted by the end of the week! Once I get more of my products up {that you can actually use this year!}, I will have an ACTUAL legit giveaway, I promise! :)

Ok, last but not least, I am linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade for her Currently February Linky party! I tried to keep up with these in the past, but failed miserably, but now that I actually get how to do it, I am going to reeeally try to do all of them...we'll see!

Ok, there it is! I just LOVE these monthly linkies and really enjoy reading what everyone has to go link up!!
Now, I REALLY need to get up out of this famous  
"hideous-but-ridiculously-comfy-chair-and-a-half", and get to the store! Enjoy the sales, and keep checking back for more TpT products!
Much Love,

The End to a Hectic Week, A Blast of Unexpected Snow, and a GIVEAWAY!

Wow! Where did all this snow come from?? I have to say, I was quite disappointed this morning when I heard the news of a SNOW DAY! Now normally, I am all about the snow days. I am usually that girl checking the news every morning in hopes of a snow storm somebody forgot to tell me about. However, today was going to be such a fun day! It is the end of Catholic Schools Week, so we were going to have a little "Sock-Hop" dance for the kiddos, AND we were supposed to have a teacher swap! The best part? The kids didnt know! It would have been so fun and my firsties are probably so disappointed to miss the sock-hop!
For the teacher swap, each teacher was placed in a grade level they were not quite familiar with. I was supposed to go to the 5th grade and the 3rd grade teacher was supposed to come to my room. I am DEFINITELY not familiar with 5th. Let me just tell you I have an ENORMOUS appreciation for all our 4th-9th grade teachers out there because I promise you I could NEVER do it! I think because I am not mature enough to handle the age group. All the attitudes and dirty looks, I'd just give it right back to them! {Which explains why I am in first, and not the upper grades!} So, the 5th grade teacher asked me to do something really kiddish with them to just have fun with and be little again. I decided to do a Groundhog Day mini-unit on making predictions {Even though now I will not get the chance to do it :(}. It also has a cute little craftivity in there. Which brings me to my next topic: A new item in my TpT store!

Now, this is my first item that will be for sale in my TpT store, so it might be a little rusty. I realize now it will be too late to use it, but you can always keep it for next year! Here is a little preview of what to expect in this mini-unit:

A fun Groundhog Craftivity!
"Do You Think The Groundhog Will See His Shadow?"

Some fun little worksheets to help them make predictions using their own words and pictures!
This will be up in my TpT store by the end of the day! AND since it's my very first product for sale, I will give THREE copies of this mini-unit to the first three comments before I post this in my store! Like I said, I know it's too late to use it now, but there's always next year! Just include your email address under your comment, and the first three will get this mini-unit for FREE! I know my blog is not very popular yet, so if you could spread the word, that would be FABULOUS! Thank you all so much, I truly couldn't do any of this without you! :)
Hope you are either enjoying your Friday at school or, if you're like me, in your PJs at home! Happy Weekend, Friends!
Much Love,
