President's Day Washington

1. In my quest to get healthy, I've lost 25 pounds since December :)

2. My Donors Choose grant was funded for close to $800 worth of picture books.  Can't wait for them to arrive!

3. I finished my 4th class in my master's program.  Five left to go! It's so hard going back to school while having a full time demanding job.

4. My lanyard came in from Thirty-One. It was time to replace my 4 year old broken lanyard!
5. Classroom happenings:
We began learning about presidents this week.  I started using this incredible file by Katie Knight aka Teacher to the Core.
We read this passage multiple times for fluency and added it to our social studies journal.  They summarized their learning and we completed this adorable craftivity. The kids had so much fun with it!
Here are some of my favorites.

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching and Teaching Maddeness.  Make sure to visit and link up your week's happenings.


  1. Found your blog through Doodle Bug's linky and am now a follower. That lanyard is adorable! I could use something new for my classroom keys and school id. Now I know where to look.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Congrats on the weight loss! What are you doing to get healthy? I have lost 20 since July but have been stuck this month. Super cute George Washingtons!


  3. I love that lanyard! I need a new one also. And the master's...I hear ya! Five years and two kids later...I just recently finished mine. Good luck!

  6. 25 pounds?!? That is amazing! Congratulations :) Also, way to go on the Donor's Choose project. Picture books are the best, and I could go broke collecting them!
