Back to School items in December?

So remember back in August when I refused to give in and buy "back to school" items from the dollar bins at Target? Well, today I was at Target and I was looking at all the half off Christmas items and I found a section that was the “back to school” items reincarnated. I ended up buying the mini magnetic erasers and dry erase pens. I actually think they are neat items to give out to the kids. I admit, I’m still a sucker for the back to school dollar bins in December!

I have been enjoying my time off. I finally had enough time to transfer my 400 digital pictures from my camera to my computer and I backed up all my school files. I can finally cross that off of my “things to do” list. Enjoy the rest of your winter break!

I have a blog?

Wow, it's been a long time since I last posted! Yes, I do remember I have a blog!  How fast time goes by when you're super busy! Today was officially my first day off for the holiday break. I feel kind of cheated this year getting out so late but I'm sure come January 3rd I'll be loving my second week off.

Thank you Tara from http://4thgradefrolics.blogspot.com/  for the inspiration for The Grinch activities. Here are some examples of the Grinch from my class.

The kids did a great job making these and they came out so cute and unique! Some other things I have been up to besides teaching is making gifts for all my co-workers. I decided to make altered binder clip photo holders.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Just a quick post! I hope to do a better job of posting in the upcoming months.Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!
