First of all, a BIG OLD GINORMOUS THANK YOU to all of you who purchased items from Lindsay and I during the fabulous TPT sale! We are truly overwhelmed and so so blessed by all of your support! :)
In other news, I am feeling quite domesticated tonight! I made homemade strawberry jam today and homemade vanilla pudding (currently chilling in the fridge!) tonight! YUMMY! My husband is on a wheat free kick (AGAIN-the guy lost 20 pounds last time and he wasn't even overweight AT ALL-what a turd!) so I am trying to be creative with my sweet treats, while silently kicking and screaming "NOOOO! Bread is my only reason for living!!"
I have been going into my classroom a little here and there, and I am so excited about my new classroom purchases/updates! Check them out...
|revamped crate seats with vinyl covers! ME LOVES!!|
|Cutesy cute hanging file folders from Mardel!|
|Pinterest inspired eraser cap dispenser and chimes to quiet my chitlins!|
|New carpet squares, ala IKEA. $3 each!|
|Super shaggy carpet, also IKEA! Only $5, folks!!|
Here's a little FREEBIE for ya that goes along with my newest unit...
I have been graphing apples for years with my kidlets-We learn about good ole Johnny, my kids all bring in an apple to class, and then we sort them, graph them, and make applesauce in the crockpot using this AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL tool-TADA!!
Have you heard of this apple peeler/slicer/corer?? I got mine at ACE hardware but they also sell them on AMAZON. This thing will rock your faces off, seriously! I can peel/slice/core all 24 apples my kiddos bring in in like 10 minutes-no joke! It is also AWESOME to have at home when you want a quick apple but you hate the peel (like me!)
I usually peel them at home and then peel just one in class as a demonstration, just for the entertainment value of seeing my kids faces. The kids are AMAZED, and of course, I give them all a little taste because this contraption cuts the apple really thin and spirally so you can break off pieces really easy. (Dude, I feel like this is an informercial-sorry!)
Anyway, back to your FREEBIE. I was using the old apple graph from AIMS FOR-EV-AH and it is just so old and ratty that I had to make a new one, which you can download for free on TPT! Click the apple to head on over and download!
Last thing, I promise...
My baby brother, whom I love and adore, was visiting from Seattle. He is 11 years younger than me, which make him just 10! (Just joshing-he's 27, which is so weird, since I'm only 29!)
Anyway, my mom is always bugging us for a picture together, so we obliged her...
And then, he busts out the shakey face. What is that, you ask??
SERIOUSLY!!! What the heck is wrong with that guy?? Is that not the most HIDEOUS thing you have ever seen?? I think it JUST may have to become a tradition, because he also did it when we visited him in Seattle! That kid kills me, and I just LOVE him to bits!!
Alright, I'm out, Peeps! Gonna walk my pooch with the fam!
P.S. My husband changed my nickname to "Bagel Bowels", which is TOTALLY true. I have SERIOUS issues, if you know what I mean? Anyone else with me??
