Check out this new Common Core State Standards book. I have checked out the sample and it seems to be a nice mix of worksheets that you could use for assessments and headers, question cards, etc. for hands on learning. If you are interested, you can check them out here:
Just wanted to send my apologies...it was a SUPER busy day yesterday and so there wasn't a Saturday 7. I will post a freebie later today though. I did want to let you know that in conjunction with ThistleGirl's customer appreciation week, I am having a 20% off sale in my TPT store. (including newly posted Halloween items...more coming!)
So I think the hardest part of going back to school is not getting up early or deciding what to wear or even dealing with the idea that you're no longer your own boss. It has got to be FOOD! You know, eating dinner at the nearest drive thru in a hurry. And what about lunches????
I'll admit it, trying new recipes was tops on my list this summer, but in Vegas, it's too stinkin' hot to turn on the oven. I did try a few new ones (desserts count, right?). I LOVED this one from
Well, what's been going on this week? Is everyone back to school? We just finished week 2. 171 school days until summer vacation! LOL! I am not complaining. I have a pretty sweet class. I'd like to stick most of them in my pocket and bring them home with me.
So, here's what I'm thinking about, listening to, dreaming of...be sure to tell me what's on your mind. I'd love to hear it!
I do not know about you, but I am ready for some cooler weather! It's been so hot and humid here. (Think about 100 degrees!) UGH! Bring on the cooler weather...PLEASE! (Of course, they always say to be careful what you wish for...if it snows here, I'm sorry!) LOL!
And speaking of fall...ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL????
GO PACK GO! I have a die-hard Colts fan in my class this year. Over the years I've created/converted many a Packers fan. Gotta say this one is not happening. He's even been taunting me by wearing his Colts attire for the past two days. Packers and Colts play THE DAY BEFORE my birthday. Think it would be too much to ask for a win?
How many of you watched the telethon last night? This is a near and dear cause in my family. My grandma, my aunt and I have all had breast cancer. It's never too late to donate. You can do that here:
So...what song have you been spinning on your mental turntable this week? I'll tell you what, my kids have been learning this song, because it's our class theme song for this year (maybe forever). I cannot get it out of my mind!
Well, along with fall, comes the new fall lineup. Any new shows look good to you? I can't wait to watch Vegas! Growing up and living here, I have met Ralph Lamb on a few occasions when I was little. I will be interested to see how good this show is. And also, have to catch up with my guys from Big Bang, of course!
See this cute headphone graphic from Just So Scrappy, well, I'm going to need a real set. Just found out that Punkerdoodle has been assigned the violin in orchestra this year. His teacher assures us that at the winter concert they will not sound so screechy. Here's to hoping!
And finally, here's this week's freebie. It's never to early for Halloween, right?
So here is a little something new: The Saturday 7. Things I'm thinking about, listening to, reading, wanting to do, etc. I hope that you'll add your own posts here, too. Oh, and did I mention that the 7th think will always be a FREEBIE???!?!?! Be sure to tell your friends, because it's free for EVERYONE! So, without further delay, here is today's Saturday 7!!
See this adorably happy, chunky thighed baby?? It is so hard to believe that he is going to be ELEVEN on Wednesday. AND he started middle school this week! (all advanced classes - Proud Mom Moment for sure!!) Where does the time, go??!?! Happy Birthday, Punkerdoodle!
Speaking of birthdays, tomorrow would have been my sweet Uncle Bob's birthday. He recently passed away. To say he was one of a kind, would be an understatement. Happy Birthday, Uncle Mun! I know you're up there walking on the beaches of Heaven.
Do you have any fast and easy weeknight meals that are you "go to" meals? I promised all summer long that I would increase this section of my recipe book, but didn't get to it. I would LOVE to read all of your wonderful recipe ideas! I personally swear by this recipe site.
