Earth Day

I had an awesome day with the family today.  We went to the Rappahannock Earth Day Fair.  I came away with lots of new ideas for the classroom.  The most exciting one was the newspaper seed pots.  I found a blog that has fantastic directions.

I also connected with a composting worm man.  He is going to set our classroom up with composting worms.  How cool is that?  I've had worms before, but I drowned them.  He has assured me that this won't happen under his guidance.  The kiddos are going to love watching our trash become compost. 

I also found out that last year's "frog eggs" were actually salamander eggs.  I spoke to some ladies who showed me the two different kinds of eggs.  No wonder my "frog eggs" didn't work out last year.  I think we had salamader eggs.

And we found a place to get rain barrels and composting tubs.  All in all a fabulous family day.

Blog Updates

Look, I have a widget, a few comments, buttons to Pinterest and TPT.  I've made a whole .58 on TPT. 
I have favorite blogs, books and links.  It has been a successful Spring break.  I still have a lot to learn, and I am having tons of fun.

My first TPT sale!

I am soooo excited.  Someone actually liked my TPT activity and purchased it.  Yahoo.  I know it isn't the awesome sales that lots of ladies have, but I have made a whole .29.  I think I am more impressed that someone liked it enough to spend .99. 
The most important thing is that I can't wait to use this cute activity in my classroom.  I think my kiddos are going to LOVE it. 
We are halfway through Spring break and I still have so much to do.

I'm jumping in...

I jumping in with both feet.  I'm blogging and I created my very first originial TPT product.  I don't know how the TPT ladies create all those super cute products that I happily purchase.  It took me ALL day to create this one.

You can purchase the whole product at TPT for .99, but here is a freebie sample just for you.
