Freebie Friday and a {{GIVEAWAY!!}}

Hi everyone!  I hope your Friday the 13th was better than mine!  I'm normally not one to even think about Friday the 13th, but after today...I might have to give it some credit!!  My kiddos were H*L* on wheels today, I almost backed into a bus in our school parking lot, and not one, but TWO cars almost hit me on the way home!!  What?!  I got home and haven't left!!

Anyway, I've got some kiddos that do not know their sight words so for that small group of kids, I am printing out this little FREEBIE for them and highlighting the words that they know.  As I periodically check them, I will just continue to highlight the words.  The students keep them in their book bags so that their parents can work with them each night.  I'm linking up with Teaching Blog Addict for Freebie Friday!

Birthday {{GIVEAWAY}} and Monday Made-It!

Happy Monday y'all!! 

      I'm stopping by quickly tonight to link up with Tara over at Fourth Grade Frolics.  The two things I want to show you tonight is how I'm going to manage WHO is in my small, flexible groups.  Now, the pics only show 4 students, but that's all the clothes pins I had at home.  It's be a dream to have only 4 students though!!  ;) But, when a student needs to move to a different group, all you need to do is move their clip!  How simple is that?!  Instead of putting student names on the clips, I am putting their Magic Number, which is just their classroom number that I use to help me stay organized!  That way, I won't have to remake them year after year!  Yay!!
       I have them for both reading and math groups.  Each set has up to five groups.  Click the pics to take you to my TpT store.                                      



      Now, for the exciting part!  My birthday is September 11----this Wednesday!!  And, in honor of my birthday, I am having a little giveaway!  Nothing too extravagant, but one that is a sure crowd pleaser!!  

      The awesome Troy over at Classroom Friendly Supplies contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I'd be willing to do another pencil sharpener giveaway for their BRAND NEW precious pink sharpener!  Of course, I said, "YES!!!!"  

      So...since it's my birthday week, the time has come to post about this awesome little giveaway!  Enter and tell your friends to enter!  This is an amazing sharpener!!  You can read my original review HERE!
Just look at those points!! 
Precious Pink
My favorite pencil in my favorite color!!

Labor Day Currently

Happy Labor Day y'all! I hope you have had a fabulous day of rest and relaxation! We have had a very lazy day...and it's been wonderful!!

I'm linking up with the fabulous Farley for her monthly Currently linky so here goes...

      It is football season at our house!  And, it will be on from now till there are no more games... My hubby played football for Clemson, and he has watched the Clemson/Georgia game twice now...

      I'm loving having this extra day.  Why can't we have Mondays off all the time.  It's make things simple, don't ya think?

      I'm thinking I really need to get my lesson plans done.  In fact, I just finished and now printing!  Yay me!!

      I'm wanting my laundry to magically get done.  I don't think it's going to happen, but a girl can wish right?

      I'm needing a pedicure.  Not much to say about that.  : /

     And, to show myself some love, I want to try to take more time for myself.  Sometimes as moms and wives, we forget about ourselves.  Instead of a shower, maybe a bubble bath instead?  Sounds good!!  I also want to try to leave more stuff at school.  We as teachers work too much!!  And lastly, I want to reconnect with my friends, not just on the weekend, but during the week as well.

      Well, that's it for now.  I hope you all have a great week.  

Till next time...
