It’s Friday and I have a unexpected DAY OFF! Which is always a treat. But unfortunately, the reason we are having a long weekend is because our kiddos are so, so, so SICK! Our little school has been hit so hard this week. Lysol, Hand Sanitizer and Clorox Wipes have definitely been my daily friends. Luckily, I have escaped it so far and pray it doesn’t find me! And, hoping that Monday morning brings kids on the mend back to school. NO more fever, coughing, sore throats and runny noses. It is NOT the kind of sharing we need anymore!

Our school’s auction is coming up in a few weeks. We started working on our class project. But, we didn’t get too far. I am waiting on three of my sick babies to come back so we can finish the first step. This year’s project is a little different from the ones I have done in the past and I am looking forward to finishing it. Stay tuned!

When 1/2 your class is out sick you can all use the white board at one time. I only had 8 at school on Thursday and we had a few minutes to kill so we had a practice spelling test on the big board all at once! Why Not?!?

I’m not sure HOW but I managed to finish and list two Valentine resources this week. Lots of computer time early in the mornings and late at night! My kids {and me too!} loved the Winter Dry Erase sheets I made a few weeks ago. But, I am over the winter stuff and ready for some LOVE and HEARTS! So, these Valentine sheets will be slipped into my dry erase reusable pockets for early finisher work for the next two weeks!

This pack includes 44 sheets in colored and black and white.

And, I am super excited to have my next set of Cut and Paste printables prepped for the next two weeks. We use these each morning for morning work. They have been a huge life saver for me each day!

  6. I cannot wait to see what your project for the auction is going to be. I hope all your sick darlings come back healthy soon....it hit our school BAD before winter break. One day I only had a class of 12 out of 27. Loving the cute Valentine's cut and paste!

    Have a great weekend!
