For The Future Generation of Social Media Users

There-their-they're ecard

This week we are working on those difficult homophones you’re/your and there/their/they’re.  I told my kiddos that one of my biggest pet peeves is how often adults still misuse those homophones on social media.  It. Bugs. Me.  So, I am on a quest to change that for the future generation! I told them that if they ever plan on “friending,” me when they are older they had better learn the difference! If you would like to join my quest, I created and posted these little packs and they are FREE at my TpT store.  Just click the picture to go download them!

You're vs. Your (notebook)

there their they're

As always, I just ask that if you download them you please leave feedback and consider following my little store/blog/Instagram account.  It will help you keep up to date on flash freebies, free downloads, new products/ideas and sales!  Thanks so much!  You guys are the best!

Sunday Blues

They just hit….how about you?  It’s Sunday evening and I am still tired!  Last week was a CRAZY busy week and this week is shaping up to be too!  I did manage to find time to FINALLY upload some new products I’ve been working on! 
My new Valentine themed math centers are finally ready and they will be on sale 50% off until the big day!  Click on the pic below to go grab them from my store!


There are centers for reviewing multiplication facts, working with fractions, and story problems.  All things we need extra practice with right now!
I also FINALLY finished my giant James and the Giant Peach novel study!  We actually finished the book as a class before winter break but there were a few activities and things that I needed to tweak before I uploaded them.  Nothin’ like using my kiddos as guinea pigs right!  They absolutely LOVED the book and couldn’t wait to dive into Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!  We finished that one about 2 weeks ago and celebrated with a “Wonka,” Party!  It was a huge hit!

Anyways, this pack is giant and it includes loads of activities and power point presentations for teaching vocabulary!  You can click on the pics below to check it out!




It will be on sale in my little store through Thursday!  You can grab it for 20% off! 
I’m off to finish up around the house and get ready for my busy week of Parent-Teacher conferences and my first trip with my husband minus children EVER! 
Happy Sunday evening everyone!

Currently February

It has been sooooo long since I have linked up for a Currently, or even blogged for that matter.  Life is busy (sigh).

Feb Currently

Laundry… is never ending.  I have a system that is helping it go faster for me though.  In my closet I have 4 baskets and we sort the clothes as we go during the week.  Then, on Friday nights before I go to bed, I grab my daughters’ baskets and sort those into the baskets in my closet so that I can start laundry first thing Saturday morning.  I am always up at least 2 hours before everyone else in my house on the weekends, it’s my quiet time!  I can usually have a few loads done before the rest of the family is even up!

We discovered a new hiking trail a few weeks ago and we have gone every Sunday since.  My girls love it and we get to spend quality time together and get exercise!



I have a lot of work to get done this weekend.  We have our Famous American Wax Museum coming up this week.  120 third graders will be set up on display in the hallways of our school.  This year’s event will be even bigger and better!  We are doing it in the evening so that we can put them on display along the hallways and make it more like a “real,” museum!  I will be sure to blog about it next week!  It is by far one of our favorite days as teachers!


My husband and I have NEVER left our children to go on a trip just the two of us.  Can you believe that?!  It’s not that we haven’t ever wanted to, life just gets busy.  Finances are always tight.  I could go on and on.  Anyways, we are finally going somewhere!  He has a former basketball player who is playing D1 college basketball in Texas.  A few weeks ago he texted and said that his Senior Night was coming up and that if my husband could make it he wants him to walk out on the court with him for his introduction!  No way am I letting him miss that!  And of course someone needs to be there to take lots of pics!!!  So, I found a cute blue and white chevron shirt…….


Now I want to find a cute orange necklace to wear with it.  Not my first choice in color combinations but it’s the school colors! 


I NEED to go for a run this morning and do some weights.  I have a few weeks and I NEED to fit into my jeans comfortably.  I really can’t afford to buy a new pair right now!

2 Truths and A Fib…….

1.  True….I did meet Johnny Depp when I was in junior high.  At a car show in Hartford, Connecticut.  It was back during his 21 Jump Street days and I had just a teeny tiny crush on him!
2.  True….When I was 3, my dad played on his company softball team.  I was at his game with my cute little NY Yankees ball cap on and my softball glove on my hand.  My dad was rolling the ball to me to “catch,” and a photographer snapped a picture.  It ran in papers all over the country as filler.  My mom got clippings and letters from people in Ohio and California.  It was my brief 15 minutes of fame and I was too young to enjoy it Winking smile!

3.  Fib…..I really don’t like cooking.  I do it because they ask to eat every night!  We are a hard family to feed, lots of food allergies and dietary restrictions.  Coming up with ideas for meals is a chore that I do not enjoy.  If we could eat Chipotle every night we would, but that would get expensive.

  Okay, I’m off to switch out a load of laundry and  put on my running shoes……talk to you all soon!
