Some nights I struggle to think of what I should write about, but tonight is not that night. I found a linky party that looks like a blast. Even though it isn't quite February it is coming up fast! This linky party is a little different. I have to post about something I've created or found, post a freebie, and something funny. Make sure you click below and go join in the fun! I never thought the word "linky" would be in my vocabulary since it's a little 'fru-fru', but I have to say linky parties are a blast!
Fabulous February Feature:
I'm going to go in a different direction this time - clip art!!!! There is a ton of great clip art out there, but one of my blogging friends I started following towards the beginning of my blog just started creating clip art. The first thing she created was Valentine cupcakes. The minute I saw them I had a million ideas run through my head. I can't wait to use them! So, I'm sharing them with you. Below is a picture of them. If you like them, then you need to go visit Erica at Blooming in First.
A Fantastic February Freebie:
This is my newest freebie and I have to tell you, I created it just for you and this linky party. I've been wanting to make a few Valentine items, so I ran with it tonight. By the way, one of the sheets I had to make twice. I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing (I'm blaming Abby on Dance Moms) and I accidentally deleted the entire page. However, I already had it in my mind, so I just couldn't pretend like it didn't exist. Oh, and I decided to go with Valentine monsters. I thought our sweet boys would enjoy these. If you like them, click on the pictures to get them and definitely let me know what you think and if there's anything else you've been wanting. I'm always looking for some good freebie ideas.
A Funny:Today was one of the funniest days I've experienced this year. Do you ever have days where you can't punish your students (Even when they deserve it) because they are so funny you can't help but laugh - today was that day! Honestly, it wasn't even the whole class. It was the red table. First, you have to understand, we are still in the middle of table battles. Yes, believe it or not, table battles are still working. Who knew? I would've started this months ago if I had known how competitive they were. Well, the red table was a little chatty today, so we commented that they needed to calm down since they were Chatty Cathy's. One of my students, with a grin, said, "We're special!" By the way, this is where I wish I could insert tone because it was hilarious. Later today, our speech teacher came by to pick up a few friends. One of them hopped up without asking, so she commented that maybe she was taking my T.A. and me. Without missing a beat, a friend at the red table said, "It's time to get down and party!" Where do they get these things? You'd think they had a silly first grade teacher or something. Last of all, I made a comment this afternoon and apparently my voice went from normal to a high pitched chipmunk voice. My T.A. couldn't resist pointing it out. Well, the next thing I knew the red table was "mocking" me by saying things with high pitched chipmunk voices. I realize that mocking probably isn't a good thing to promote, but I was laughing so hard, I ended up rolling with it. Not sure what was up with my red table today, but love that teaching is so full of laughter.
Well, that covers everything for the linky party. Now, if I can figure out how to lengthen a day, I will be in great shape! Have a great hump day tomorrow!
