TPT..I think I can...I think I can...

If you are in the path of the hurricane, I am keeping you in my prayers. Be safe!!

I love Teacher Pay Teacher! A couple of months ago, I decided I wanted to make a few things to put on there.  I used Microsoft Works to create a noun game. Oh.My.Goodness. That was such a bad idea! It was SO hard!!  Recently, a blogger posted that she uses power point when she makes her TPT items. OK that sounds better! So I sit down tonight and begin playing around on my husband's MacBook. It's official, technology is apparently NOT my thing! Failure is not an option, so I WILL figure it out...Any suggestions???



We all will probably have a very interesting week! On the bright side, at least Halloween isn't on Monday!!!

Thought my mimio was a goner....First Year Linky Party

Let me start off saying that my mimio is a very special part of my life. I mean really, how did we ever make it without a smart board! Last Wednesday, the projector started flickering. Each day it has gotten worse...and WoRsE...and WORSE!! Today that thing was blinking something furious! So I call the tech guy. Mr. man said he had never seen a projector flicker like mine and thought the bulb might be going out...Sorry, but I can't live without it! I told a couple of co-workers what was going on. A friend blew the projector out and it MaGiCaLlY works correctly again!!...I am going to take that girl some chocolate tomorrow...


I am linking up with Michelle at The 3AM Teacher in her First Year Bliss Linky party! She is celebrating her one year bloggy birthday and is hosting this fun linky party! 

One of my fav moments of this first year of blogging is when Michelle from Apples and ABC's and Greg from Smedley's Smorgasboard commented on my blog. LOVE them!!

Each new follower and comment make me smile! In this blogging world, I have enjoyed getting to know all of you. Your ideas and things you share make me be a better teacher!!

Today's work...Gotta love pinterest!

I found the CuTeSt Frankenstein on Pinterest. Life in First Grade had pinned him. You can see it here.  Here's our version of him.
The kids had so much fun making this! As they made these guys, the kiddos made up stories of him. Their stories were very cute!
We have been studying nocturnal animals this week. After discussing skunks, we talked about bats.  Here is another pinterest steal. You can view it here. This is our version of these too.
At the end of the day, our hallway is looking a little like Halloween!
Looks like one bat is flying away!

Busy..Busy....

I have not been blog hopping in a while.  As I look around, I have noticed that several of you have changed your blog styles, had your babies, or even gotten married.  As I hop around, it feels as if I'm catching up with old friends. :) I hope each of you are having a GREAT year!
