Ok, so I usually try to stick to one topic within a blog post, since my tendency is to wander to eleven different points, even when blogging about a particular topic. BUT, since I am about an eon behind in blogging and catching up with my beloved fellow bloggers, I thought I would share a couple of things at once. I hope you don't mind!
I still haven't officially taken photos of my whole classroom yet. I tried--I swear I did! But it was early in the morning on Thursday and the sun was coming in through the windows like crazy and the pictures just looked all funny. So I have a couple of older pics from the beginning, more to come soon!
(They are mostly showing off my pretty plants, a trick I learned from the incredible Melanie from Schoolgirl Style!).
I managed to keep all but one alive so far (a new record for me!)...
(I have 17 students right now, in case you were wondering...this mailbox just holds the first 15 students' work).
Ok, to the giveaway! First of all, thank you for the sweetest comments in the world! They brought me such happiness this week! :) The three winning names drawn were...
And, finally, I am joining up with Casey, from Second Grade Math Maniac for her wonderful idea for a fall sale (I adore the fall in New England...the leaves are just starting to change right now!). Thank you for the chance to link up Casey!! :)TpT store are 20% for this sale (the green link will take you over to see the items).
Thank you for stopping by!! I will be back soon with a file to share and a very focused (well, mostly focused!) blog post :) :)
