Giveaway and a "Teacher Crush"

Happy Monday!
I will admit that it is "happy' for me right now because it is almost over
{sad face}

What a day! What a day!
I was out both Thursday AND Friday- so I had to "mop up " all those messes before I could begin the new week.
After all those were taken care of, we moved on to our day.

I introduced some AH-mazing Math centers from my friend Jen @ The Teacher's Cauldron- you are going to fall in love with these-
I will post some pictures of those centers in action tomorrow!

In Lit Block last week, our spelling words were all compound words. When I saw Miss Kindergarten's Compound Words Craft this weekend- I knew that it would be something that they would instantly LOVE today. I was right!

{My class kinda has a "teacher crush" on Miss Kindergarten}

They absolutely loved working on this!!
Here are some pictures of the final product, the work in progress, and my favorite- THE DISPLAY:)

Isn't that the best? I printed the pages with the strips where the compound words were and then they chose a strip- with their eyes closed.
And then I told them it was



And it was the quietest, most relaxed, craft we have done in a long while.
"Secrets" are the new "secret" in my room!

Thank you Hadar for making compound words so fun!

Here's something that is NOT a secret
{great segway}
I am a Squirrel in L.O.V.E. with coffee.
I drink it in the morning, I drink it in the afternoon, I drink it at night.
This could be insight as to why I am so high strung sometimes...... I may have to look into that!

Sometimes late at night, when I am perusing the blogs, and replying to all the great "nutty chatter" you leave for me- I wish that I had someone to share a nice hot cup o' joe with ....but everyone here is asleep (thank goodness)

How great would it be to share?

How cool would it be to enjoy a little latte together?

Well, now we can. At least one of you can. Check out this mug. It could be the best coffee mug ever!

Is that not hilarious???
It's SQUIRREL APPROVED, FOLKS! It's right there on the package!!!
When I saw it at our bookstore I bought two-  because this is just too funny to keep to myself!!

So what crazy thing does Squirrels want us to do?
Easy Peasy.

For now though, I am going to take a little hint from Barkley:)
