Merry Go Rounds and Freebies

Do you remember Merry-Go-Rounds?  I used to love getting on them and just spinning around and around.  I think we always chanted, "Faster!  Faster!  We need another master!"  We would run as fast as we could and lean back with our heads inches from the ground holding on for dear life.  Yet, we were fearless.  It never occurred to me that I was on a piece of metal more dangerous than a bike, car, or tank.  So where am I going with this?  That's how I feel lately in this excited world of blogging, Pinterest, TPT, Facebook, etc.  It is fun and I love every second of it, but even when I'm sleeping I'm dreaming of hitting refresh buttons.  I feel like I'm yelling "Faster!  Faster!" and I'm leaning back loving every second so much that it never occurs to me that I need to probably slow down a little.  I can't tell you how many times I have thought if God had made 36 hour days instead of 24 hour days, I could come much closer to accomplishing everything running through my mind.

Anyway, if you are on this crazy Merry-Go-Round with me - welcome!!!  It's definitely more fun with some friends, especially my first grade team and my blogging friends.  I think you guys understand this crazy combination of teaching, blogging, and creating better than anyone.

So, since you took a few minutes to read my "I probably should go to bed early" paragraph, I'm going to give you two freebies.  Two of my teammates requested these, so I whipped them up tonight.  I hope you like them :) If you do CLICK HERE to get them.


Don't forget to check out my other freebies on my blog and my TPT freebies and new packets on TPT.  You can  CLICK HERE to go to my TPT site.  As a head's up, if you need fairy tales, you may want to get my bundle instead of the individual sets.  The bundle will save you $4.  No pressure!  Just wanted you to know where you could save a little :)

Also, I know this is a Wednesday post, but I'm linking this item up to Manic Monday at Classroom Freebies on January 28.  You may want to go check it out.  This site is loaded with some awesome stuff for every grade level.

  12. Hi Faith! Thank you for these adorable pages! That is so sweet of you to share! I finally started a blog and opened a TPT store, so I know what you mean about the Merry Go Round. I have used that example before to describe how my thoughts come and are gone so quickly because the next one has come around. Not just teacher thoughts...all of the aspects of our lives! However, reading awesome teacher blogs such as yours and being able to tap into the multitude of talented teachers on TPT has truly enriched my life and has brought back the spark of creativity in me as far as teaching goes. Sometimes it is so easy to get bogged down with all of the extra paperwork that we need to complete for our students. Thank you for all of your hard work!
