Too Much Tuesday!

This post has a little to do with music-
so I thought I would share a pic of that band I was in
back in 2000
(That's me on the drums. I know, I was hot, right?)
{source: http://www.effinguitars.com/About.html}


So much to share-
Where do I start?
First....my BIG news...



I opened my Tpt store........(apparently ya'll knew that because Stuck on A Word has been downloaded 145 times and I don't even have it listed on anything)

I'm feeling a little like Oprah!~
What??! Oprah doesn't have a store...why would you feel like her?

BECAUSE EVERYTHING IS FREEEEEEEEE!


"A free freebie for you and a free freebie for you..."
(sorry, it's just not in the Squirrel budget to give away cars!)

I just thought instead of/ in addition to having a freebies page on my blog- I would put them in the Tpt store...that way if you are searching there for something in particular, you might be able to find it more easliy...and let's face it, adding stuff to the wishlist is so easy- and then you can download lots at once...love uncomplicated!

Second-
We have our Arts and Authors night this Thursday and First Grade's theme is Country Music.
We listened to it.
Looked at the history of it.
 We listened to it.
Read some articles about it.
We listened to it...

(Me no likey the C&W music- doesn't mean I don't appreciate the art of it- I just choose to listen to other genres-
for instance- ANYTHING THAT ISN'T COUNTRY MUSIC)

So after we listened to several instruments- I gave them this organizer (that is available in MY TPT fo free- just click it)!



An Example of the Drums
Drums (in center circle)
I feel like I have to dance when I hear the drums.
I like the beat.
I think I want to learn how to play them.
I want my mom to get them for me for my birthday.

It was just easy to get our feelings out- We revised sentence fluency and made some corrections- but this organizer served as a nice springboard!
Hope you like it:)

Third
We are decorating the entrance to our hall. We have C&W music.
BFF Neighbor Teacher and I worked on part of the decorations after school today. The instruments are almost as tall as a kindergartener! Grand Ole Opry =Grand Ole First Grade...of course I will take pics when we are done!

Fourth
We are working on Reagan's Mothers Day Unit.
Today we made the lemon sugar scrub- (some of us- still have some to do)

They loved it!

Of course it they were going to give it as a gift- they had to see what it did:
They were committed to exfoiliating!

All around the cuticles!



No one likes a flaky m & m!


 


The boys liked it too!
This sweetie tried to do her feet:)


I had the softest class today:)




And then I showed this product I googled to show them how much they were saving this mother's day!

Looks like they are saving...oh....around $49!!!!!
 I have to go get more ribbon tomorrow after school and then we will be done with that part! We have to get it all out of the room before the mom and dad's show up Thursday night!!

And I leave you with my fifth and final item

 My oldest son got this be-lated Bday card in the mail today....it "was his day to go nuts!"

I have a very important, thoughtful question to ask you tomorrow night-
really- I can't ask tonight because
my opinion on it makes me see
red
BIG RED
BIG RED FLAMES
BIG RED FLAMES THAT CONSUME ALL OF MY THOUGHTS
and those thoughts live "rent free" in my brain- and I
don't have space to lease right now, let alone GIVE AWAY~!

Have a great night and an wonderful Wednesday

  3. Yeah for you and opening your store:) Wish I was in your class...my hands are a mess!!!

    Ok, now I'm dying to know what's making you see red. I won't be able to focus today (ok, everyday....that's nothing new!!) because I will be thinking about you seeing red and what's causing it.......do I need to come there and give someone my teacher evil eye???? Tell me and I'm there!

      I am not confident enough to sell anything yet- plus the clipart police scare me!!!
