The Countdown Continues...

I think she's it's scared....It seems like she's it's hiding now... I don't know where she got the glasses, she really needs to stay out of  my  stuff!!!
She knows her days are numbered!!!! 3 days to be specific!

Tonight was an early celebration~ I am not sure how well I will be able to eat on the 7th- with all the work- so the MR and the Littles took me to Red Lobster...I ate soooo much! Onion Rings, Cheddar Biscuits, Salad, Cajun Chicken in Creamy Alfredo (the full size) and I think I had 4 drinks- {non- alcoholic}

So the bill comes and EVERYONE- except for me- whips out a gift card and says , "I GOT IT!"
They all had $25 gift cards! My mother in law sent a letter with all the gift cards to Chick-a-dee, and told her to plan it  all out! It was very sweet...and yummy!

We got home and I got started on a blanket for our neighbor's daughter. I totally let the date get away ...
probably my pre-occupation with THE BOX...
but we have a shower to go to this Friday night!
The nursery is jungle themed with pretty greens and browns- I love making this pattern! In the years between graduation and teaching I made like a gazillion baby blankets, big afghans, and hats....I have to get crackin' on this one though-

We formally start Money tomorrow-
I have no worries because it is in our daily calendar- so we have worked with money everyday for 125 days! Touch money is awesome!!!!!
My biggest worry is we do not have workbooks and do not have access to color copies- so the copies of coins are really crappy! It is because of this that I do a lot of performance based assessment and have them count and record {with and without me present}...I will have to nab some good B&W clipart and make a few more rubrics....I will be sure to share when I do:)

I  am also planning on another 6+1 full piece for the showcase portfolio...and I want lots of focus on the publishing and presentation so we are going to use our Unit time in addition to the writing block.

I have 2 friends from each grade level 2-5 coming to present a piece (their fav from the showcase that follows them) so they can see how their writing grows each year. My hope is that it motivates and inspires some of myr friends....

I will have to look up how to make a linky party....I think it would be neat for us to post one or two pieces and talk about it-
would you be up for that?

I hope everyone has  MAH-VA-LOUS Monday!!!


  1. I love writing linky parties, so YES, have one, have one!

  2. OMG, you crack me up with that box!! I have some b&w coin clip art somewhere on one of my memory sticks ( 1 of 8) that I can email you. Email me if you want me to look for it.

  3. Hi Staci:
    I've never been so obsessed about what was in a box for someone else (at someone else's house!)... EVER!
    I know it's for you, but I can hardly wait!

    Love the blanket--the stitchwork is so delicate. Whether I am knitting or crocheting, I can only create triangles... starts wide, ends up narrow!

    Happy Monday (tomorrow)...

  4. That dinner sounds delicious! And I'm glad I'm not the only one who orders chicken at Red Lobster! A writing linky sounds like lots of fun!

  5. wait... your Mother-in-law sent the gift cards?? Didn't she also send you THE BOX??? Man- she goes all out for your birthday! or maybe it is just socks?? Either way- I can't wait to see what it ISSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

    Let's Teach Something 

  6. I feel your no workbook pain. I didn't have any workbooks for the longest time at the start of this year. I have a money unit that I created in my TPT store called Cha-Ching. I just hated the two pages that were in our math book. Maybe that would help?

  7. Hey Chickster,
    Thanks bunches for the email - I'm still alive, but BURIED. Lots of school/home stuff getting in my way of blogging. I'm DETERMINED to watch The Bachelor and do some blog stalking...

    But wanted to let you know I'm still in the land of the living...

    What's with the box? I think I missed that...and since time is scarce, I can't go back and look. Do tell!!!!

    Hugs to you!!!!!
