winners and a read-in

Happy Friday!!!! I've had a pretty good week and am just starting to really get back in the swing of things.
We just finished our 4th week of school (wow...that went by fast) and we earned a Read-In by filling up our marble jar.  So, while you're reading this, I'm in my footie pjs (btw, footie pjs are not flattering AT. ALL. so you have to get over yourself and just wear them if you want to be like the cool kids) showing my kids how it's done!
I saw an idea like this somewhere recently and can't remember where (if you know,  tell me so I can post a link!), but I think it's going to make a huge difference! I made each item that my students have in their desks. They are laminated with velcro on the back so I can rearrange if necessary. I think the Desk Fairy will be visiting a lot more this year!
Bear. In the classroom.  This wasn't at my school and I'm not sure who's classroom it was in (I grabbed the photo from another teacher's Facebook), but check out how cute this lil cub is! Apparently, he snuck in during the night and they had to shoo him out in the morning! Poor baby!
I finally get to announce the winners of my 250 Followers Giveaway!  If you see your name, please check your email later today for more info about receiving your prize! Congratulations! 



  1. Hey! I just found your blog through lovin lit. I missed your giveaway but found you! I love Alaska. My family have traveled there so many times I can't count. I've gone one time with my husband but Juneau was socked in with fog. I was bummed because I wanted to take him up the tramway and go on hiking up the mountain but we couldn't, I told him we have to go back and I know we will because my family loves Alaska. Good to find your blog! I'm now following by email, on blog lovin, and your TpT store. :)

  2. A BEAR!!! In the classroom!!! Oh my stars! At least it was a cub! Those ghosties are precious! Heading over to snag them now. :) Thank you!

  3. Hello! I found you on the Five for Friday Linky party. I'm so happy that you were the blog before me because I've been hearing your name recently on IG or something. Can't remember but I've been wanting to get on your blog. :) Here I am! LOL. I would love to visit Alaska one day! Have a great year!!
