The Virginia Meet-Up and a GIVEAWAY!

What a day! 
I met some great new Virginia blogging friends on Thursday during the Virginia Blogger Meet-UP
hosted by the wonderful
Karen at Mrs. Stamp's Kindergarten and Kelly at From Kindergarten With Love.

 I had a fabulous time and came home with a bag full of goodies!  The amazing Heidi at Heidi Songs sent gifts for everyone.  I came home with Jumpin Numbers 11-30. I am very excited to use this DVD to help my kinders with their tricky teens! 
Thanks Heidi! 

Lucky for you... Heidi also sent enough for us to give YOU a chance to win a CD too!!  LOVE ya, Heidi! Just follow my new friends and VA bloggers from the meet-up for additional chances to win the Singable Songs for Letters and Sounds CD!

To need to visit Mrs. Stamp's Kindergarten Blog for all the details.

Two for Tuesday...

I always have lots of good intentions to post more often, but I don't know what to post and I have lots of trouble committing to a subject.    So, I am going to put myself on a schedule.  Every Tuesday I am going to post two new picture book titles that I LOVE.  Here are the first two titles. 

I found these two new books that I am adding to my Science class library!  Click on the captions to go to Barnes and Noble and order your own copy!

Dirty Gert
                                                                        Dirty Gert
Little Gert loves to play in the dirt so much that she turns into a tree. Gert loves dirt. She plays in it and even tastes it. One day Gert is delighted to discover that she is becoming a tree. I'm  going to use this book while teaching the needs of a plant.  Dirty Gert by Tedd Arnold

999 Frogs Wake up
                                                                  999 Frogs Wake Up
Wake up—it’s springtime in the swamp! As 999 young frogs awaken, they panic to find that all of the other animals are still asleep. First they wake the biggest frog… then the tortoise, the lizard, and the ladybugs. But when they hop down a hole and all pull together, they find someone they don’t want to wake—a big, long snake. Don’t wake him up!  I am going to use this book while teaching about hibernation..  999 Frogs Wake Up by Ken Kimura

The summaries are from Bibliocommons and Barnes and Noble.

Virginia is for Bloggers!

I don't know about you, but my school year seemed very stressful.  We got new reading curriculum this year, new math curriculum last year and the whole standard 7/ data collection thing started for us this past year too.  Change is a good thing, but that much change all at once made for a stressful year. 

I felt like I just kept my head above water.  Something had to give and it was the blog.  But I'm BACK baby!  I resolve to post more this year.  I love my little blog and it and all of you make me happy!  
Now for the FUN!  I am linking with up Fifth in the Middle with her blogs by state. Virginia is for blog lovers baby! 

AND I am happy to share that Karen and Kelly are celebrating Christmas in July with a Virginia Blogger Meet-up.  Woo Who!
