Money and Pizza Roll Ups!

Sorry, I'm breaking the rules...hope you don't mind :)

But I wanted to share my new project for the day.
(P.S...Hubs and I had some great down time rocking in the rocking chairs on the front porch.... just so you know, I DID relax

This is my Differentiated Money Pot unit!
I can you do St. Patty's Day without doing money? ha!

These math centers are broken into 3 tiers and are organized by pictures.

T1: Up to 50 cents, T2: up to a dollar, and T3: using dollars AND coins.

First grade can use them...and if you have high ones that are ready for more!

Perfect for 2nd grade,

and I taught 3rd for so long, that I KNOW they still need the help in money! lol

Click the pick to check them out - it's only $1 :)

Ok, now for my first recipe of the few that I want to share...

The picture is not pretty, but I promise these are YUMMY!

It's Pizza roll-ups!

I asked A what she wanted for lunch one day and she said pizza...well, we didn't have any, so I made these up! lol

All you need is a can of crescent rolls (yes, I, some sauce, cheese, and I added pepperoni! 
Although I will say, it was harder to roll with the pepperoni, but the yumminess from them was worth it - ha!

I am so sorry, I don't have pix for the during to show you how, but my camera was on the wrong setting the entire time!! I blame the

Unroll the package of rolls and "roll" them with a rolling pin, making sure all the creases are sealed closed. So you will have a big rectangle in front of you, facing longways.
Put a thin coat of sauce, the cheese, and if you want, pepperoni.
Roll them up, so you have a LONG log.

Then, cut in the middle, then cut each of those halves in half and those in half, so you will end up with 8 same-sized roll-ups.

Put them on a pan and bake as directed on the can.

P.S...the next day, I took the leftovers out of the fridge and ate them cold - still YUMMY! lol

I've decided to share the Reader's Theater with you...not ALL of them right now, I'll keep giving them to you throughout the have quite a few. :) But I have some Seuss ones...I just need to change the font/size and get them out of Word..ugh, HATE word. So maybe tomorrow I'll have them for you.

AND because I LOVE Mardi Gras, (seriously, I used to go every year when my old BF lived right outside's just so much history and traditions! Loved the parades, and the King cake with the baby!), tomorrow I'm hosting a Mardi Gras dinner with some I'll share those yummy recipes too. And I still have my sneaky cookies I wanna share with you too. Yeesh!

The option of Loans for the unemployed people is primarily meant to serve the tenants or non-homeowners without any collateral when they require funds ranging from 1000 to 25000. Repayment of the borrowed amount of loan can be made in one year to 15 years as per your circumstances. Interest rate will be bit higher for lack of collateral for the borrowed funds. Prepare your interview clothing As an example here's how it would unfold. The manager/employer says, "So do you have any questions for us?" In response you say, "What reservations do you have, or reasons why you might not give me this job?" The employer, after pausing and hesitating for several seconds might say something like, "Well we were looking for someone with past experience in labor relations." And of course this would be the point where you turn around and relate to the hiring manager that you didn't realize it was such a critical part of the job, and you go on to list your experience in this area (hopefully you have some). Problem solved. You have addressed any concerns the potential hiring manager/company may have had about you before walking out the door. If you don't address their concerns before you leave, then it's too late for you.
