Winners and Shop til You Drop!

Happy Sunday! This morning I want to announce our five winners from our Teach Like a Pirate book study. These five fabulous bloggers will get to choose either  t-shirt or signed copy of TLAP! CONGRATULATIONS! I'll be sending you an email later tonight!

Who needs a little shopping therapy? ME! ME!  Everything in my store is 20% off. Be sure to use the sale code BTS13 for an additional 8% off. THINK HOW MUCH YOU SAVE! (That's how I'm going to justify my massive purchase today!)

Here are a couple of items to get your year off on the right foot!
First, my latest creation All the Write Moves. Lots of posters for your classroom, writing goals, and quick activities.

This next product is a must for your literacy stations. Fix Up the Mix Up has mixed up sentences for your students to read, unscramble, rewrite, and illustrate. I included an easy rubric for grading. My class loved these last year!

I'm off to finish my shopping and work on my classroom! Happy shopping!

It's My Birthday!

Yep, it's my birthday! Holla! I had plans to be super productive and work in my classroom. Instead I slept in, got my nails done, bought new running shoes, and....finished my writing pack. SHUT UP! Yep, it only took me all summer. (If you follow me regularly you know I had to recharge after last school year.) You can see the full description here!

I wanted to create something that was an easy go-to for a quick resource when I saw something coming up in our plans. I think most of what is in this pack I'll be using or introducing during the first nine weeks of school when I'm completely overwhelmed and exhausted and can't possibly think anymore. It's 59 pages of easy items for your classroom. I'm sure I'll be adding to it and tweaking it all year too!

I finished it just in time for the TPT sale. I'm telling you, I have a wish list that won't quit! 

Tonight is the last night for you to link up your posts for the Teach Like a Pirate book study! We announce our five winners tomorrow!!

I'm off to NOT MAKE DINNER and NOT DO DISHES and definitely have a margarita! 

Let's Talk About Me Monday

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to tell y'all a little about myself! I've already spent loads of time reading about my bloggy friends!

We are supposed to share a few things about ourselves that you may not already know.

1.) I'm married to a super duper patient and hilarious husband. Dave and I have been married for two years!

2. It takes a special kind of person to be married to a teacher. My husband totally "gets" my addiction to office supplies and gets a kick out of me getting giddy over erasable gel pens and a giant pack of Post-Its.

3. We have a kitty named Rowdy. She is a rescue cat and she is high maintenance. We don't have any kids yet so she is our spoiled rotten baby. Can you tell she has a hard life?

4. I have taught 3rd and 4th grade, but first grade is where I'm meant to be. This will be my fifth year teaching first grade!

5. I love TV. LOVE TV. After spending all day with children I want to hear grown-ups talk. Especially if they are super fine vampires like Eric on True Blood. Vampire Diaries is my favorite show and no matter what my husband tells you he really likes it too. We also like The Big Bang Theory and reruns of Scrubs. Both of those shows make us laugh out loud.

6. I loathe spiders. They are all out to get me. Seriously.

7. Seattle is my happy place! At some point we will move to Seattle permanently. We just got back from our two week vacation in Seattle. I miss the smell of the trees and I miss being on the water. My husband has a sailboat and we get out on the water whenever we have good weather while we are in Seattle.

8. I have started running. I'm not especially good at it, but I'm working on it. I saw a shirt that said "Run like there is bacon at the finish line" and I think I may need it....And some bacon.

9. I love big purses- they hold everything I need and then a little bit more. 

10. A few random facts: I never ever leave the house without mascara, I love to buy jeans, if I'm not wearing earrings then I feel naked, and every Monday I buy a hazelnut latte on my way to school just to get the week started off on the right foot!

I can't wait to keep reading what all you bloggers have written about yourselves!
