Movie, Alarm Clocks, & Freebies Galore!!!


After several days in pajamas, lots of hot chocolate (with extra marshmallows), and tons of Hallmark movies, I returned to school today.  It's really a miracle that I made it on time.  I didn't fall asleep until 12:30 because I was printing all of the amazing finds I had over the break.  Usually I print them at school on colored card stock, but I've decided to start investing in ink and print more in color. I was also watching the most amazing movie.  It was called Beyond the Blackboard.  If you are a teacher it is a MUST see.  You can CLICK HERE if you would like to purchase it.  It reminds you why you teach.   After the movie I fell asleep and dreamed my alarm was going off, so obviously I threw it across the room hit it. Come to find out, I turned off my alarm in real life, so it's a miracle I made it on time.
Anyway, things went pretty well today and I knocked out at least 3 or 4 things on my list.   Plus, I finally got two new lamps for my classroom.  They are the ones from Target that you bend and twist different ways.  I love lamps and I'm determined I'm going to get enough in my classroom that I won't have to turn my classroom lights on during the day.  Oh, and in case you haven't gotten my New Year's Activities freebie,  CLICK HERE to get it.  You can also CLICK HERE to get my S'mores Addition freebie.  All that I ask is to please leave a comment if you like either of them :)  When you go to get it, you may want to check out my store.  I have a sale running through tomorrow.

Now, my favorite part of blogging.  I have a new freebie to share.  Here are pictures of the three new freebie sheets.  These are three things that we have needed to work on, so I threw them together to do tomorrow and Thursday. If you like them, CLICK HERE to download them.  


 Hope you guys have a great rest of the week.  I will do my best to blog tomorrow, but I have a pretty big list to knock out.  Not to mention, I really want to get my grateful journal done.  I haven't started it yet, but I decided yesterday I was grateful for my encouragers because they keep me going.  Today, I was grateful for hot water.  I'm not sure why, but some days you just realize that even the little things matter :)

See you later :)

  5. I agree with Lisa - your freebies are the best! I really like the reference material one. Hope you didn't hit your alarm in your sleep again! I do that with my clock alarm and finally had to start using my phone for an alarm. :)

    1. Okay... love waking up to comments like yours :) I didn't accidentally turn it off this time. I had to think for a second though :) I use my phone, too... specifically, the rooster has a way of getting me up and moving. Have a great day!

    1. You are more than welcome :) I hope your kids enjoy them :) I noticed when I started giving my kids sheets with a little bit more clip art, they seem to not realize they are working... funny, but that's why I'm creating non-stop :) Have a great weekend!

  10. You have made some amazing freebies to share! Thank you so much. I am starting a gratitude journal this year also. So many things to be thankful for - the little things especially. I saw that movie last year. It really does help us to remember why we do what we do! Enjoy your new year!

  16. Can you be followed by e-mail? I didn't see it. I think Beyond the Blackboard is also a book. (not sure) I've seen the movie several times, and it seems like I have the book.

    1. I've had several people ask that. I can see a subscribe by email button, but I will definitely check into it for you. If I can't figure it out, I can manually add you :) I'll have to check into the book. I loved the movie which means the book is probably even better.
