Meet Ethan~ a super hero and miracle.  7-year-old Ethan has been recently listed for a heart transplant at Shand’s Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. He was born with Hypoplastic Left heart syndrome – in Ethan’s words “half my heart works”.  Ethan has already endured 3 open heart surgeries and many other smaller procedures.  A very special #iheartethan bundle fundraiser is available for those who make a $20 (or more) donation to COTA in honor of Team Ethan H.  Funds are being raised to assist with transplant-related expenses.

I am so happy to be a part of this very special fundraiser for such a brave little boy and his family.  This amazing packet is only $20 and is filled with so many wonderful activities for your classroom.  The money will go a long way in helping Ethan and his family. 

My Best Seller on TPT, All About Me Informational Text Features Book (feedback) is included in the packet.  This entire bundle is a $100 value.  Please head over to Pencils, Glue & Tying Shoes to purchase or click on picture below.  Thank you for your help for this brave family.

The Winner Is and More Fun Finds!

Hey friends, thank you to everyone who participated in the Bloglovin giveaway.  I am so excited about all of my new followers.  I promised to reveal the winner yesterday but I was busy working on giving myself a raise.  Ha! Not really, we actually have been working on refinancing our house.  After changing from 6.9% to 3.5% it truly feels like we gave ourselves a pay raise.  Hallelujah! 

Okay, now for the big winner..... The winner of 2 items from my TPT store is Charleen S.   I will be contacting you today.  Congratulations. 

Now for a few fun items I found today at Hobby Lobby. 

Chalkboard/Dry Erase Easels.  They range in size from 3X5 to 8X10.
These would be great for center directions or for the kiddos to write on.

Chevron and Polka Dot Burlap Ribbon....Sooo cute.

Duck Tape from JoAnns.  Fun colors for the 4th of July and Summer.

And Finally, these sweet little fingers belong to my daughter.
This is our latest project, these are at Walmart.  They are little
paper squares "tattoos" that you cut, dip in water then place
on top of the nail, then do a clear top coat. 
These are little maps on her nails.  She loves them.

Have a great evening.

Fun Summer Finds and Bloglovin

Hey friends.  I have been out doing some window shopping at a few of my favorite stores.  I haven't purchased anything yet...I usually wait until July.  In our county we usually get a little bit of money to use on our classroom called Florida Lead Money.  We have to keep receipts to verify what we have bought but are allowed to use any purchases we make over the summer (after July 1st).  I hate the wait because I am so afraid the items I want will be gone but I am getting better at self control, HA!
These are a few of the cute items, I want to go back for:

Beach Chairs from Walmart $4.97  How cute are these for a reading center?

Solar Lights from the Dollar Tree.  I would love to have
one on every table.  They have an on/off switch.  They
recharge in fluorescent, incandescent or sun light.
The overhead lights need to be off for them to light
up.  I know the little ones will want them on all day
so maybe a small piece of paper could cover the solar
panel when classroom lights are on.

Display at the Dollar Tree....they were going fast.

Target Summer Buckets Display (middle shelf).  Great to use for Big Books.

Plastic Beach Basket...Another Big Book Holder from Target. $5.99

 This sweet little girl isn't for sale.  Meet CoCo...she got a new
red harness and I just had to show her off.  LOVE this dog.
I'll have to do a post about her one day, such a doll.

Last but not least, I have to talk about Bloglovin.  This has me a little worried.  I hope I have everything in place that needs to be done.  I have "claimed" my blog by using the tutorial I found on I Teach What's Your Superpower.  I also transferred over all of the blogs I follow from Google Connect.  Megan has another tutorial on that as well.  Ellizabeth at Kickin It in Kindergarten also has a nice little tutorial about claiming your blog.  Good Luck with the change.

Don't forget, please follow me on bloglovin.

Monday Made It...Christmas in June?

With temperatures like this, sometimes staying inside in the air conditioning is a blessing.  Since I don't have a pool and baking on the beach just isn't my thing, Monday Made it is perfect for me.   

I'm linking up with  Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It!  Okay don't judge but I am catching up on a lot of things this summer.  That includes Christmas projects that went undone!  In December we went to this sweet little Christmas store Santa's Claus-et in Gatlinburg.  They had lots of wreaths half price on their little porch  (rocking chairs and swings on the adorable).  

This German twig wreath caught my eye...I love anything primitive. 

I added the mini battery powered LED lights I found at CVS.   The rest of the "filler" items came from a primitive shop we found in Pigeon Forge.  My sweet husband agreed to leave late on our last day just so I could do a little shopping.  I was in heaven finding things for my wreath. Felt poinsettias, rusted jingle bells garland, old mini snowman hat (They actually cost more than the wreath).  Then I came home and found the burlap poinsettia at Kirklands for 75 cents, Score. 
Finished Project
I'm still deciding on a burlap bow at the top.  My daughter thinks it would be too much.  I can't wait to hang it up at Christmas.  It is a very large wreath, spans almost all the way across my door.  I didn't realize that when I grabbed it up at the store.  What do you think?
I'll be sharing some fun finds tomorrow from the Dollar Store and Walmart. Already spending money for the classroom.
