I did it! I did it! I did it!

After a day of sitting on the couch hard work, I finished my Winter Olympics: Sochi 2014 Pack.  Oh man! I think this is my best work yet! I really hope I get to use this somewhere in some class come February.  CHECK IT OUT!!!

Lots of good stuff here!!

Whew! Now that that is done, what will I do? Well finish up Prefix: Mis and maybe actually be a human and go out and be social? Well it’s not like I am a loner, I do hang out with my lovey! He is just on a different couch playing Madden (not as productive as me, in my opinion) haha! 

Oh before I forget, I got to use my Stocking Sleuth Logic Activity while I was subbing for a friend one day (I knew he wouldn’t mind).  While this product didn’t sell once : ( I personally found it successful with those advanced 2nd grade kiddos.  SO it would be perfectly for 3rd and possibly 4th grade.  Well there is always next year, people!
Some groups needed some extra help but then they go it!.
Well I am off to go hang out with some teacher friends which requires leaving my couch and getting a shower.  Have a great night!

Happy Holidays! Hope you are enjoying time with your family, friends and with yourself! Isn’t alone time so nice?  Don’t get me wrong, I love my hubby but I am more productive when he is not around because when he is I just love to relax with him!  He is just so fun and cute! I mean look at that tan!!

So far, we have spent A LOT of time with family and friends.  One of my best friends, and bridesmaids, got engaged the Saturday right before Christmas at her parent’s annual Holiday party.  It was such a happy occasion! Then we spent Christmas Eve day with her, her family, and her new fiancee’s family! They are from Croatia and they made a TON of food.  I’m talking a whole pig, cheeses, meats, side dishes, and dessertsOMG the desserts! 

Okay well I could go on and on about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but I won’t bore you.  Now I am hanging out at home, cleaning, doing laundry and all that fun stuff.  In between, I have been finishing up a packet of resources on Silent Consonants.  Check it out!!


This is my first attempt at a “preview”! It includes 2 posters, word lists for g-,k-,w-,.b, and igh- words. There are 3 worksheets and a game called “Go Gnome or Go Home!” (I am pretty proud of that one : )) Oh and 2 assessmentsa quiz and a ticket out the door! Pretty much all you need for a mini-unit on silent consonants!


Can I just stay home for the months of January and February? I will come back out in March when it is time for my b-day ; )  Here’s a peek at two other products I am working on and hoping to have done by the end of break!  I already have the first two days after New Year’s day scheduled so I can’t slack off!

The first is a group of activities to learn about the Winter Olympicsspecifically this year’s in Sochi!


The second is a mini-lesson on the prefix mis-.  It will probably be short and sweet and priced accordingly! 


Since I won’t be in any one classroom consistently, I am excited to share these with friends who can use them! Hopefully I will get the opportunity to use my new products at some point during the rest of the school year!

We shall see what 2014 holds!


Happy New Year!!

Back to life, back to reality...

Last night we returned from Mexico after a 7 day escape from the cold, winter {not officially but yes} and LOTs of snow! We missed two big snow storms and lounged, drank and ate in 80+ degree weather.

While it was great to spend time in the sunshine, by day 6 we were both mentally ready to come home.  Kind of weird to be ready to leave the beauty of palm trees, blue skies and even bluer ocean but we were!  We missed our house, cat, family and friends.  And I kept thinking amidst the heat and humidity that in 10 short days it will be CHRISTMAS! I feel like I haven't had time to get into the spirit--we didn't decorate because of vacation and I hadn't done any shopping before we left. 

So now, I am resting at home ordering lots and lots of prints of Wedding pics, New Years cards, and Shutterfly books.  Yes, ALL of our family will be getting pictures for Christmas.  I think the year of your wedding is the only time you can really get away with that.  Or when you have a baby?  Not sure of the rules but it definitely makes shopping a little easier this year.

Moving on from personal life, and back into teaching.  Well, since my position ended right before Thanksgiving, I went back to day to day subbing before vacation.  Other than that, I haven't had many any job prospects.  While usually this makes me panic, I am truly relaxed and calm and okay with whatever will happen.  Maybe its the vacation mode, or the approaching holidays but I am at ease with whatever 2014 will bring.  I have been so fortunate this past year, so many amazing things have happened both personally and professionally.  It's really time to just reflect on the year and not stress about what is to come.

With that said, I don't have much to share as far as teaching stuff.  So I will leave you with one more honeymoon picture.

Hello December!! A mish mosh of things...

Well this Thanksgiving break has been both enjoyable and productive! Let me start by recapping last weekWednesday was my LAST day in 2nd grade for the class I have been with since the second week of school.  I will miss them dearly but I am also looking forward to what’s next!  The teacher I was in for came back on Wednesday for a transition day and she had planned a little ice cream party for my send off so that was sweet!

Thanksgiving was spent with my parents AND Mr. Stahl’s side of the family.  It was really awesome to all be together especially considering the alternative.  See, I’ve spent the last 25 Thanksgivings with both sets of grandparents and now that my grandmas are both gone, it would have been pretty lonely.  My grandpas aren’t doing so well themselves and it would have been difficult for them to come to my parents.  All in all it was a wonderful day : )


So I still need to go back to the school I was at just to tie up a few loose ends.  AKA the laptop I had been using for 2 months died and I didn’t get any of my saved work from it.  No worries though, it will be returned tomorrow so I can go get my precious documents off of it.  Once that happens, I will have a lot more pictures to share!
Speaking of Pictures: We received our wedding photos about 3 weeks ago but then life got in the way and I didn't have time to do much with them.  SO I have been putting together books and cards for the holidays.  Here are a few of my favs:

Last but certainly not least, I am dreaming of our vacation (in 5 days!!) to Riveria Maya, Mexico!!!!  But while I wait, I suppose I will keep working on TPT things...Oh and I did manage to make 2 new products.  Here ya go!!
