Election, Thanksgiving Break, and Giveaways, Oh My!

Wow! What a DAY! I have thought about what the day after the election would look like for a while, and it was just that. Hurt feelings. Name calling. Lucky for me, I got to spend the day with 5 year olds. They are not oblivious though to what they hear at home. We had a little sit down and watched the Kid President: How to Disagree first thing this morning. When I recapped and asked students what they can do if they disagree with another friend, the first answer out of their mouth was DANCE! Wouldn't it be nice if it could be that simple and we could have a huge dance party right now?



One of my girls wore this sweet shirt today, and it brought tears to my eyes. So many people are hurting right now. Regardless of the outcome, there were people on both sides who were feeling forgotten, unloved, or invisible, and that breaks my heart. Praying for unification and a nation that truly is indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


Soooooo on another note, it is NOVEMBER! How is that even happening? Only one more week and one day of school until I am off for Thanksgiving Break! I am taking an extra Friday off to head down to Florida for a wedding with my boyfriend, and then off to the Bahamas! I have never been to the Bahamas OR on a cruise, so I am beside myself with anticipation....so if anyone has any cruise tips, I am ready to hear them! I will try to post some pictures upon my return!


And....THANK YOU to all of you who sponsored and entered my 1,000 Followers Giveaways during the month of October! I had such a blast! All winders were chosen and contacted and I am so happy that they are enjoying the goodies! Speaking of goodies, I have teamed up with some amazing teachers who are giving away a $75.00 Teachers Pay Teachers Gift Card this week!! Just in time for the holidays! Woot!

1,000 Followers Giveaway Week 4: Tieks Giveaway

This week has been CRAZY! My first night of Parent-Teacher Conferences was on Tuesday night. To add to the craziness, when I left school on Tuesday night at 7:45, I had a flat tire. I work out in the country and I was 35 minutes from home. Lucky for me one of my sweet student's parents came out and changed my flat tire for me.

Our fall class parties were today which is such a fun event for the students. But I am exhausted. I was definitely dreaming of some unwinding time this evening. I got just that by going to my friends', Valerie and Molly's, Flannel and Fall Party. It is just what you would imagine. We wore flannel. We drank wine. We ate chili. We played games. We laughed. All is right in the world. P.S. We played the game Speak Out which was hilarious. You can clearly see by this picture that we were having a grand old time.


So this week is the LAST giveaway to celebrate 1,000 Followers for my TPT Store. So excited! First off, I have marked down my Kindergarten RTI: Phonemic Awareness Essentials, pack to just $3.00 for the week. AND I will be adding some new activities to the pack over the next few weeks, so get it now before the price goes up!


Some of my fabulous teacher friends are helping me celebrate in a BIG way this week! We are giving away a pair of Tieks! Teachers love Tieks for their beauty, versatility, and comfort! You can enter 21 times! That's right! I'm serious! You can enter once for every person that you follow! Enter now in the Rafflecopter below. Best of luck!


Prize: $200.00 Tieks Gift Card
