Featured Freebie

The warmth and kindness and support that occurs amongst TpTer's never ceases to amaze me. Tammy at Teacher Tam featured my End of Year Candy Awards Freebie on her blog. Isn't she a peach?!!!

A Few of My Favorite Things May


Old cartoons. Who doesn't love sitting down with the family or friends and watching great, old cartoons. Here are our top 3 favorite old animated cartoons.

The groovy colors and vocabulary, the hip songs, and the scary villains - you gotta' love Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! (pre-scrappy episodes, of course) Our family loves to find the animation mistakes. Velma talking in Daphne's voice, Shaggy with blonde hair, villains' legs missing. We LOVE Scooby-Doo!

A close second is Bugs Bunny.
One question for you – from where does Bugs pull those items? He must have really deep pockets. Our family loves Bugs. He is so suave, isn't he?

I know Spongebob is not old exactly, but it is still a classic. The creative characters, the townspeople rioting, the songs - everything comes together to form a fun cartoon that appeals to both young and old alike.

Of course, my favorite thing is saving time and money. Yours too? Then check out my End of the Year Awards. I hope it helps you out in this busy end-of-year madness.

This bird project reuses toilet paper rolls which is always a plus. And gluing the feathers onto the roll is so simple; the kids can do the project independently which helps boost their confidence level.

Spring on the farm is a fabulous time. Seedlings started to sprout up and baby animals are being born. Aren't these animal sticks adorable?

Mother's Day is coming up. I like this card idea. I have lots of smiley face stickers, so some can use stickers in the middle instead of drawing a face.

I know thoughts are wandering toward end of school ideas, so I wanted to share my End of Year Awards FREEBIE that I just completed. I hope this will ease the burden for some of you. Just remember to buy the candy! :) 

Check out other Pick 3s and have a great May!

Currently May

What better way to celebrate the new month of May than a party with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade?!
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Interactive-Teaching-Tykes-Catalog-1684567

Listening:
We had a cold snap last week, so it is super nice sitting here with the window open listening to lawn mowers, children playing, and the breeze gently blowing. Springtime in NC is truly lovely!

Loving:
We have one daughter entering grad school, one daughter graduating from college, and one daughter graduating high school. So many excellent opportunities are opening up for them and for our son still at home. I am so thankful to have truly terrific children!

Thinking:
My trunk is full of clothes and items that we no longer need or use. It is a simple process to drop them off at the Outreach in town. I just need to DO it.

Wanting:
So, I am trying to eat well and exercise more. It is such a struggle for me. I am SO hungry and to be honest a bit grumpy. Should be better soon. I hope.

Needing:
I use to have such strong willpower. I need more now though. I cannot fall back to eating junk and being lethargic. I shall overcome!

Summer:
I have soooo many unfinished TpT projects, so finishing those projects are my yes, hope, AND dream!
