And these fun "Design Your Own Mug!" mugs...
Part of me is thinking to purchase them to let the kiddos design and use throughout the year...water for warm days, Abby's "Jitter Juice"from her "Fun with Firsties" unit, hot cocoa in winter...but then there's keeping them clean and storing them too. What do you think? Should I do it??
Are you stalking Jessica Stanford over at Mrs. Standford's Class? She has some really cute ideas and I always love reading her posts...plus she's from Ohio just like me! Anyway, she's trying to earn enough votes to win a laptop for her classroom. Click on the link below the picture to take you to her blog post!
I just posted three sets of my chapter books on Teachers Pay Teachers. Thanks again for all of your advice.
I priced them @ $15.00 for a set of 5 and added $5.00 for shipping and handling. We'll see how it goes. Spread the word to those who you think might be interested.
So...a funny story....
My sister, her two daughters and I live at Soak City during the summer. Soak City is a water park connected to Cedar Point which is practically in our backyard. We're there a lot! Anyway, the other day I was just minding my own business and reading The Book Whisperer (Awesome book...I'm going to email the teachers at my school and tell them that it's a great summer read...they're going to think I'm crazy). One niece was sleeping and the other was laying in the sun with us and all of a sudden I feel a presence. A lurking shadow...a giggling lurking shadow. As I turn around to see what's standing near me, there they were...all smiles. 5 kiddos from my school. Now...on a side note, God has not blessed me with a beach body and one would think that he could at least bless me with beach hair...but noooo...I'm all wavy and curly, sunglasses trying to maintain at least a part of it...their mothers looking on admiringly from a distance...all put together mind you! And there I am...catching up on summer with the kids. They were too cute! Before I knew it, they were sitting in a semi-circle around my beach chair and we were all sharing our summer adventures. Made me start to really think about my plans for this year!Okay...well, I'm off to start laminating all of my word cards I found at The Dollar Tree (I wonder if that company knows how much teachers adore them)!
