St. Patty's unit finished!

I did it!!!  I went for my first real run back into the game!

It's AMAZING how much better (of a person) I feel! The hardest part is that first step...well, actually, putting on the clothes and shoes THEN the first

BUT, "Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't kill people!!"  (movie quote anyone???)

My 2-year old and husband should take comfort in this!

I ran 2.5 miles in 24 minutes...which is like an 11:30/mile run....while I KNOW this is a GREAT accomplishment for my first time back, I can't wait to get back to my 9:30/mile!

In other news....

It's finished!!! I uploaded my latest to TpT last night!!

This 59 page St. Patty's Day unit has 4 Literacy and 4 Math centers

Literacy Centers include:
~ABC order to the 3rd letter using digraphs and blends, with a writing & illustrating extension
~Parts of Speech Sort (noun,verb, adjective)
~Fact and Opinion
~Sentence Stretcher with a book extension

Math Centers include:
~2-Digit addition with and without regrouping
~Graphing with addition AND/OR multiplication extension and write about the data extension
~Missing addend
~3-digit number order

The whole 59-page bundle is $3 and each separate unit is $2...

I could have added SOOO many more activities...the ideas just kept coming to me. But I wanted to keep it small-ish so I could keep the prices small-ish for y'all. 

So I'll just add those ideas to my Dr. Seuss unit...once I get me some clip art :-) Maybe hubby wants to try his hand at Dr. Seuss art??? hehe...

Let me know what you think!!

Hi there,
I am a runner too and broke my tibia bone last year training for a 1/2 marathon...ugh! It was hard trying to teach 1st grade with crutches. But at least I got to rock a hot pink cast. LOL Love your stuff. I am new to the bloggers world. Please check out my blog of teaching ideas/mommyhood, etc. Thanks and I will stop in often. :o)
