Thank you and Something Fun For You!


Bad Blogger here!  I have been so busy spending time with my baby before she went back to College I've neglected you!  Sorry! 
But I hope I can make it up....

First, I want to thank these really sweet ladies for nominating me for the Versatile blogger award.  Yeahhhhh!  It is so nice to know others think you are doing a great job. 

Love this little turtle...... Teachers Can't Live By Apples Alone!
(I give an amen to that!)





Thank all of you ladies so much!  Please click on their buttons above to visit their blogs. You will love their many great ideas!

Now I am suppose to tell you some things about me...
Hmmmm... this is tough to think of something new but here goes:

1.  I grew up very poor... no phones.. air conditioning .... in a rural community. My parents are wonderful because they made sure we were first in their lives. They made sure we had all of our needs met before their own.  I adore my parents!  They placed a lot of emphasis on education so all 5 of us went to either a technical college or a University.
2. Which comes to my second thing you may not know..... I have 4 brothers and I am the only girl in my family.... Yes they spoiled me.:)  I didn't go on a date until College by myself because I always double dated with one of my brothers and their dates... My brothers and I are very close!   Love you guys!
3.  I love to watch Criminal Minds.... Law and Order  type programs on TV.  I don't know why.... maybe I like trying to analyze the bad guys!

Enough about me.... Now this is where I break the rules... I am suppose to nominate other blogs but I love so many..... I wish I had time to list all the blogs I love to stalk.. but it would take forever.... There are just toooooo many bloggers that I admire and I don't want to hurt any body's feelings...
I would nominate all who take the time to blog and share goodies with us!

So, what do I have fun for you?   Well, my Kinders have had a blast with the activity above, Scoop and Count.  I bought small scoops from the Dollar Store.  I put out a bowl of marshmallows.  Each child takes a scoop of marshmallows and counts them by using the tens frames. Then, they record the amount on the recording sheet.  Easy, fun and covers a math common core standard!  Can't get any better than that! and... they get to sneak and eat a couple of marshmallows  while having fun!
If you like, click on the picture of the activity and download your copy!

It was really nice to read about your brothers and parents - and so inspiring that all of you went on to college or tech schools.
Congratulations on the awards!

Pam...This is adorable, as usual! My baby started student teaching this week. She went back "early" to begin 2nd semester with them. (High School Language Arts tho...wayyyyyy out of my league.) Thanks "snow" very much for the freebie. Perfect for our snow centers next week! Hugs from your one of your "oldie goldie"!
