Something Good and Love, Love, Love My Readers - A Freebie!

First, I'm linking up with my sweet bloggy peep Jennifer over at Rowdy in First Grade. It's been a hard week, but I'm going to focus on the happy with...

Something Good at Home:

We've been attending the sweetest church for the last year or so, but haven't really "plugged in" to make it our church "home" yet. I am really looking forward to going to our community group gathering tonight and becoming a bigger part of our church.

Also, my favorite Snor-a-saurus Rex went for a SLEEP STUDY on Friday night. Hall-e-u-yer! We'll get the results back sometime this week, but it is a BIG step for the hubs to even admit he is a little, um, noisy at night. :)

Something Good at School:

We just finished reading Because of Winn-Dixie and I just about died when I read the last page and all 42 of my kiddos gave it a standing ovation. How sweet is that??? I am seriously in love with anything Kate DiCamillo writes. Our timing was perfect because we can't have a Valentine's Day party, but we can have a Movie Party on Thursday to celebrate the end of our read-aloud!

On a side note, I had such big plans for February.
Valentine's Day packet, Heroes and Villains unit, St. Patrick's Day update...

HA! :)

The St. Patrick's Day update will happen. I think. The Heroes and Villains unit will come along as well, but not nearly as quickly as I imagined in my head. I also have bits and pieces of a Valentine unit but that will just have to wait until next year. 
In the meantime, I hope you'll be able to use this fun freebie in your classes this week.

I am continually amazed by the love you all have shown this blog and my TpT store over the last year. Thank you - from the bottom of this busy heart! 


  1. I sympathize for with you on your snor-a-saurus. It took a LONG time for my hubby to concede there was a problem (he never really did "admit" it). After his sleep study, he was put on a CPAP....it was a GODSEND! Good luck to you!

  2. I totally get the snoring thing! My husband still thinks he doesn't store. It's not usually too bad, but there have been a few times that I get up to sleep on the couch where it's peaceful! I love that your kids gave the book a standing ovation! Two years ago when our class read "The Dot" one kid said, "That might be the best book we've read all year." Loved it! Thanks for linking up!
