I'm loving that I have nothing planned too! I need to check out your book selection, Teach Like Your Hair is on Fire! Sounds great.
It is an awesome book..Rafe Esquith is a master teacher...there is another book Lighting Their Fires...I have it but have not read it yet!
You and I have the same "thinking!!" :) Enjoy your 2 days with no plans!~LauraFirst Grade FUNdamentals
Thanks for stopping by...I am going to try and enjoy every moment of it!
I just found your blog from Farley's Currently Linky party. I am your newest follower! I just recently opened my TpT store too. Just set a few minutes aside and follow the store set up directions (It may take a couple day to complete). You will be happy you did. It is so incredible to be able to share resources with other teachers. Good Luck!JaimeBright Concepts 4 Teachers
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the advice about a TpT store...I know I will take that plunge soon!!
I'm wanting to to start a TpT store too but I just don't seem to have the time. The only time would be when my daughter sleeps but I like sleep too.
Thanks for stopping by Melissa....I am with you..there is never enough time. How old is your daughter? I have an 11 year old son and he keeps me hopping!!
I think this is the melissa I know and her daughter is 1 but will be 2 next month and she needs to start a store because we work together and she has awesome ideas!!!
I also love the "Sunday night, but nothing to wake up to tomorrow" feeling :) ~StephanieTeaching in Room 6
It is awesome, isn't it! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday evening Stephanie. Thanks for dropping by!
It sure does feel good on a Sunday night, and not having to plan anything! Actually, I am going to go work in my room some tomorrow. We start back in 24 days. Yikes!Waving from The Teacher's Chatterbox,Rebecca
Wow...24 days! I still have 46...but they are dwindling away rapidly. Do you teach in a year round school?
I love Winn Dixie, too. We don't have any of those stores here, so I made my sis in Alabama get me some paper sacks from her store to give as prizes. The kids loved them!Krazy Town
What a cute idea! We don't have them here either..wonder who I know who could get me some for the next time we do this read a loud!
I love Because of Winn Dixie, too! Kate DiCamillo is the best. I'm a new follower!ClaireLive, Laugh, Love, Teach
Hey Claire.. thanks for stopping by. I popped over to your blog and left you a message there too!!
Because of Winn Dixie is on my top 10 list for sure... thanks for linking up :)
You are welcome. It was so fun and I picked up some new followers. Thanks for hosting..it is such a cute idea!
The author from Teach Like Your Hair is On Fire will be at my magnet school conference in August. I plan on reading this book before I go! I'm your newest follower - very cute blog!Courtney3rd Grade Sprinkles
Rafe Esquith is awesome..I love his stuff. Wish I could hear him speak. What conference is this/where? Thanks for following me...I am headed over to follow you now!
Open a TpT!! It'll be the best choice you ever make :)Blessings,Jessica StanfordMrs. Stanford's ClassI hope that you'll join me for my giveaway ♥
Thanks for stopping by Jessica! I think I am going to take the plunge this month!
Hi! We seem to have lots in common. I teach 5th grade, and I also love to use technology in my class. I just started a new blog, check it out when you get a chance. www.classroomcraft.com, maybe we can learn a thing or two from each other. I am now following you! (ohh that sounds stalkerish, lol) Maybe our classrooms can collaborate on a project or something. Does your class blog? Here is my class blog. It's not up to date, but I plan on being more diligent about that next school year. www.oliviavila.edublogs.org.
Olivia- I am going to add you to my classroom blogroll so we don't lose touch! I will leave a comment on your classroom blog so you can see mine as well. Thanks,Patti
I heard Rafe speak a year ago and lOVED him! What a speaker. He sure charged up the teachers there. I loved this book!I always read Because of Winn Dixie at the start of the year. The kids always love it and then we watch the movie and compare the book and movie.
Beverley I am so jealous! I would love to hear him speak in person. He has another book but I started reading it, loaned it to someone and now can;t remember who borrowed it. Gotta grab another copy!Thanks for stopping by my blog...heading to yours now!
