Seriously, HOW can it be Friday again? {Not that I EVER complain about the weekend!} But, these weeks are flying by so fast I can not catch my breath!

What I thought was going to be a calm week started out with severe weather and an unexpected early release from school. We dismissed kids at 12:30 on Monday due to possible bad weather. Luckily we escaped with no damage but the alerts were pretty crazy. I am so thankful for a school that will dismiss us rather than having to take cover with a room full of kids!


Then on Tuesday.. we woke up with this glorious fall weather!

There is nothing I love more than a sweatshirt!

Makes me happy, happy, happy!

I am also thankful for a school that lets me wear sweatshirts and jeans!

This picture is for Janice who told me I need a picture of myself on my blog!

How long do you think I can leave these pom-poms on my hall bulletin board? I put them up for back to school and I keep thinking they will come down the next time I change the board. But, I somehow keep making them fit in with the new decorations! I am not sure I can make them blend in with Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’ll let you know….

I finished a product this week that we are enjoying in my class. It’s a set of 20 cut and paste Halloween printables. They have been great for morning work or early finisher work during our center rotations.

Here are a few we’ve done this week…


Have a great weekend!

  1. I absolutely love your Halloween printables! They are adorable and I know that my students would love them!

  5. Love your post and that I can put a face to a blog =) Have a great weekend!

  6. I love sweatshirts, too! It's the best part of fall and winter, in my opinion! Your bulletin board is adorable! I love the printables, too!

  7. I love your pom poms too. They look super cute on the bulletin board. We had a wind storm alert this week too. When it came across my phone the sound made me jump off my couch!

  8. I love your cut and paste activities! You always have the best centers! Thank you for the link up!

  9. Sweatshirts...ahhh! Those cut and paste centers look great!

  10. I am so thankful for you that your school lets you dismiss early if there is a possibility of bad weather! I don't know what I would do if we had to stay in school with that possibly coming our way!! I love your monsters and I for sure think you can find a way to have your Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff go with it!! I can't wait to see how you do it!

  11. I love how you use different colored paper for the answers on the papers. I bet that would help little ones not loose their answers so easily. Looks pretty too! Thanks for hosting a great linky party!
