Leprechaun Traps

On Friday, our second graders brought in their Leprechaun Traps to set on their desks in hopes of catching a leprechaun tomorrow morning.  Every year I am impressed with the creative of some of our second graders.  My favorite (not in the video)  was a large green laundry basket.  Inside this laundry basket was a female leprechaun.  This one came from another class I wish I had the picture of it.  

This is my first attempt at posting a video to my blog.  It was also my first slideshow video I made on my computer.  So I hope this works out.  I really wanted to share this with my parents.

Well I do hope it worked.  I tried to preview the video before posting but it said no preview available.  If not I will have to post actual pictures tomorrow.  

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Congratulations to TpT

Congratulations to Teachers Pay Teachers!  TpT's Facebook page has reached 100,000 Likes!  This is a huge milestone. To celebrate TpT is offering 10% off your purchase, just enter FB100K at the checkout.

I am also throwing a sale thru Oct. 14th.  My entire store is 20% off.  What a great time to purchase things that you have on your wish list.  If it is like mine it's a huge list.  So it's a great time to buy.  I know many other sellers on TpT have sales going on too.

Now it's time for me to shop and enjoy the rest of my 3 day weekend.

Target Finds!

I don't even want to think about Back to School yet.  So of course I don't want to see this in my mailbox or in my Sunday paper.   



However I did go to my favorite store today Target.  Of course I had to stop at the $1 spot.  You can't pass that up.  It's right in front when you first walk in!  How can one resist!  So I have to check it out.  

This is what I found.


I thought these would be great to use with any bulletin boards.  You can write on them with chalk or I was thinking silver glitter pen maybe.


Pouches- they have a place for a badge.  I was thinking for field trips.  Just making a badge and putting it in the photo id slot.  This way I don't have to make name badge for each field trip.  I got purple for the girls and black for the boys.  I might have to visit another Target to pick up a few extras since I don't know yet how many boys/girls I have.  Lucky for me I have two Targets within 10 min.  or less from my house.  I took all that they had.  We don't let me bring money on field trips so they won't get to use the the zipper pouch (I know were mean- we are not there to shop, but to learn about something.)  Another use might be when we have book fairs to the library and they bring money without any envelopes/baggies.  They can just use this.  I just couldn't pass this up.  



Scotch Duct Tape- $1.50 - found this in the school supply area.  I'm always losing supplies to the students so I thought of using a little decorative duct tape might do the trick.  

My Target didn't have a lot of Back to School stuff out so I'm sure I will be back looking.

Woke up this morning to a gloomy, cool, and damp morning.  So when I checked my email this morning and saw that Rachel Lamb had sent me a graphic for a 4th of July Sale.  I thought why not.  It's been awhile since I've had a sale.  So Thank you Rachel Lamb for the idea and the graphic.  

Just click on the graphic below to go directly to my TpT store.




So everything in my TpT store is 20% today July 3rd and July 4th.     It's a great time to stock up anything that you were looking to buy for Back to School.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday!

Finally got my Bloglovin button on my blog.  It's on the left side.  Nothing fancy, but it's there.  I wouldn't be surprised if I was the last blogger to get mine up and going.  Better late than never.  I has happy to see that I already had 303 followers.  :)    Definitely put a smile on my face.
