Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!

Just a quick hello as I am off to grade papers and start my lesson plans for tomorrow.  Another four day week as the first quarter ends Thursday and we have a teacher work day on Friday for report cards:)

Thursday night is Fall Festival at school where teachers and PTO sponsor booths to raise money for the school.  The best part is teachers are able to use the money earned for classroom supplies!  I am joining with another first grade teacher to make "Witches Brew" found in Mrs VanMeter's packet .  She can be found over at Primary Possibilities..  Super fun and yummy! I will post pictured later this week. Its a fabulous packet filled with academics and fun! Head on over and check it out!

Congratulations to Michelle over at Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera! This is a blog that is a must have on my follow list.  I am so excited to be able to give her a little something for all the fabulous ideas she has shared on her blog:)
