Teacher Read Alouds Linky

I'm joining in on the linky party over at Teaching Happily Ever After.    I'm a first grader so I like all of the Mercy Watson stories.  That little pig is awesome!  If you haven't read any Mercy stories you HAVE to right now!  And the illustrations are amazing!  I used to read Junie B. Jones a lot but got a little tired of having to explain her behavior:-)  She is a riot though.  What's your favorite read aloud?  I would love to get some new ideas for this year.

Thanks, Staples!

I headed over to Staples today to get some colored ink (wonder why I'm running out?) and got this little goody bag for Teacher Appreciation Day:-)  Not worth a trip just for that but a great bonus since I was there already!  Inside the bag was a notebook, highlighter, index cards, binder clips, and a pad of Post Its:-)  I love free stuff:-)  And, the notebooks were 50 cents so I got two, pink and turquoise.  Hubby asks "What are those for?"  Fair question...but a dumb reply "They're pink and turquoise.  No other reason needed!"  Hubby rolls eyes and laughs:-)  He's catching on!

Cutesify:  To take something plain and make it cute!!  
So, here is a picture of what we usually are given to use to collect Box Tops.  It's functional and practical,  doesn't take up much space, and is cost effective.  

Of course after seeing all of the cuteness on the wonderful teacher blogs I visit, I had to cutesify my Box Top collection container a bit.  Here's the result........

Will I get more Box Tops this year?  I don't know.  But I do know that I luuuuvvv this can:-)  Hubby thinks I'm a little nuts because I bugged him every morning to see if the can was empty yet.  Haha!  I soaked the can all day in dishwasher it smells like dishsoap and coffee!

A New Linky by Farley!

So I just found Farley yesterday and she is hilarious!  I love her profile picture!  She has two linkys going but I am not a mustache fan (didn't know there was such a thing), so I am joining in on the "Currently" linky.  Here's my currentlys (ies??)...

1.  I love Pandora!  I play it while I'm working on the puter and the puter and I do a little dancing!  It's a pick me up fooooor sure!
2. My baby girl is in Ecuador working with little kiddos in the markets.  I am living vicariously through her texts!  Thank goodness for texting!
3.& 4.  No explanation needed.  I hate going to the store!
5. I really need a computer upgrade!  I hate waiting....and waiting...and waiting...for internet to catch up with me!
6. B2s must haves-Wow!  So many things needed before school starts.  Gotta get in the classroom this week and take a peek around and make a plan for a new layout.

Head over to Farley's site and join in on the linky!  See you around!  Oh'Boy 4th Grade
