There's a Storm a Brewin'

When did this happen?????

I'm over 300 followers now!!!

Wowwy.

I never thought this would happen....ESPECIALLY since I've been off from work for 2 months, so I haven't really had anything insightful to share - just my thoughts. I feel like I'm Rambling Jennifer (I was going to make a comparison of myself to Babbling Abby, because of the play on words...but I didn't want to insult her....because let's face it, there's no comparison...ha!)

Seriously.

Thank you to all of my followers. You guys are awesome and I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting your comments. They really brighten my day. :)

And thank you to all of you who have started following me at my TpT store! I go and check my stats over there all the time...lol. I'm lame. I know. (please, if any of you do that, let me know so I don't feels so lame! ha!)

I wanted to show you one of my crafts I did. It's a mouse pad makeover!



It was super easy and I had everything on hand already.

I found the idea from Jazmine....Click her blog pic to go check out how to do it!

Keep it Krafty

 And even though we haven't had rain in FOR.EV.ER, there are storms, somewhere, right??

(Wait...it just rained for like 15 minutes. I guess that counts..lol)

Well, it's raining in my new packet I made! Yay!

This one is a supplemental Literacy packet to your weather and storms unit.


There is 36 pages and 5 different activities




~Compare and contrast (in both Venn Diagram and Double-Bubble) for rain/snow and hurricane/tornado with a writing extension
~Compound concentration game
~Sentence Scramble - these are written in a way that they are writing facts down as well.
~Picture and caption - after brainstorming ideas, they create a "poster" and write about it
~What I Learned - using a divided circle map, they jot down what they know and learned, with a writing extension

These are very Thinking Maps oriented....it's how I "think" now when I create things...lol.

It's on sale for $2

Did you see?! I used some of hubby's doodle frames throughout the packet!!!

Those are on sale in my TpT store too, for only $1 and there are 20 different colors and shades.

And I just got a new idea to add to it.....
But I'll try probably use different graphics so I can give that as a freebie...I don't have a Scrappin' Doodles license to give out freebies....boo. I can only sell them since I don't need a license to do that.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Of course you have insightful things to say! It's not like you moved to Africa during the past two months. You're still a teacher! =)
