Surprised and Honored...

A couple of days ago I was contacted by Becky  from UCreate .    Becky does a weekly Teacher Feature on her blog and this week she chose to feature 3rd Grade's a Hoot. Are you kidding me?   I was very surprised and honored that she found me and decided to include me on her blog.  She let me know last night that my "Teacher Feature" would post this morning at 5am and to be honest I was so busy I didn't even get a chance to look at it until after school today.  I had a chance to look around her blog for a little while. Um...more like an hour to be exact.  She had me at the cute little owl on her header. Anyway it is an amazing blog.  I will definitely be pinning a ton of ideas for new crafts and must haves.  I especially loved these cute Jack o' Lantern Jars.   
Oh my cuteness! and guess who just got her first Cricut!  Yep, this girl right here.  So now, making these faces should be a snap. They will definitely be posted up on my "Mystery Reader" table in October.  I can't wait! This is just one of the many adorable ideas I spotted on UCreate.  You guys simply have to head over and show her some teacher love!  Toodles!

Manic Mondays

It was just another Manic Monday (whoa, whoa)!  Sorry I had to.  Anyway I always feel like Mondays are crazy.  New word wall words, new spelling words, new vocabulary words, a new story to picture walk and make predictions about, a new skill for grammar, and racing to finish so I can start a new math topic at 10:00 sharp.  I am exhausted and I'm sure my little thirdsters are all off in dreamland by now, but I wanted to share my Boggle bulletin board with you lovelies.  I saw Mrs. Rojas' board and just had to have one in my little room.  She is so sweet to share such amazing ideas and has them posted on her blog, "Create Teach Share".  I really thought the Boggle idea was fab and would be a great Work on Words activity.  I can't wait for my kiddoes to see it tomorrow!
I have really limited wall space left so I used the bottom of my classroom door.  You can get the letters and a recording sheet to go with the activity right HERE and check out her board.  It is super cute! 
Toodles ya'll!

My Top 10 Blogs

OMGoodness!  I am sooooo thrilled that someone gave me an award.  I can't even tell you how surprised I was when Janis over at Caffeinated Conclusions included me in her Top 10 list.  Now it's my turn and it is going to be a daunting task to narrow it down to 10 but here I go...

1.  First Grade Glitter and Giggles-

Marisa is my bestie.  We were first grade teammates for 5 years before I moved up to 3rd and now we are on opposite sides of the building (boo).  We are making it though and having fun chatting about blogging and pinning constantly.  So much fun having a BFF at work!




There you have it.  My Top 10 and thanks again to Janis for nominating me.  You made me smile!  Toodles!
