So, I just need a little therapy session here, girls, so bear with me...
On Friday, I found out some news that made me REALLY question a process that I used to have ALOT of respect for, and when I found out this news, it made me realize that, for at least this year, that process is a TOTAL SHAM. That sometimes it's more about WHO you know, than WHAT you really deserve. (Sounds political, right?? Yes, you are CORRECT.) And, it made me really disheartened by the whole process.
BUT....then, I came home and looked at these 2 beautiful faces...
And, I woke up Saturday morning to this wonderful husband and father...
And, I realized how incredibly blessed I am, and that I know in MY HEART what is true. So, I am OVER IT. Moving on, and keeping faith that in the future, the process will be what it once was, NOT what it became this year. Nuff said!!
Many of you asked me for the words to the Chinese New Years Dragon poem, so here you go:
"Gung, Hay, Fat, Choy!"
In China, every girl and boy
Celebrate the New Year
In a very special way.
With fireworks and dragons,
Colored red and gold,
They welcome in the New Year,
And chase away the old!
Hope you can use it in your classroom!!

And, now on to your FREEBIE!! I got many kind words about the Super Sentence post I wrote at the beginning of January, so I decided to use my Arctic Friends clip art and make some "Super Sentence Frames" for you to use in your classroom, whole group, small group, or even individually. These are different because they are blank, and...
Use these sentence frames with your class to brainstorm ideas for writing “Arctic” themed super sentences. Place frame under document camera, or project onto white board to use whole group. These frames can also be passed out as individual worksheets, to allow students to think of and write down as many words for each column as possible!
6 different frames are included in this packet, AND it is F.R.E.E....because I love you guys, like ALOT!

I leave you with this little bit of cuteness...our bearded dragon Beaker watching the rain on homemade lego steps!
Thanks for listening, friends. I feel like I got some closure today. Hope you have a blessed week!
