Owl You Need is Love

It feels like Sunday, even though it is Monday. I love 3 day weekends. Tomorrow is the 100th day of school and where will I be? I won't be at school if that's what you were thinking. I have jury duty!! Seriously?! Why do they call teachers in during the school year? I know that many people have excuses, but I really wouldn't mind going during summer break. Just getting out of the house is a relief in the summer. Oh well. I left some fun 100th day activities for my students to do while I'm gone. I figured I would recap last week before I get too far into this week.

Last week started with duty. I had duty all week, morning and afternoon. It was the coldest week of the year. No I take that back, it was the coldest week in 30 years. It was in the mid 20's last week. This week it is in the high 40s in the morning. I wish this week was duty week. :-)
 This is cheating a little. I didn't do this last week, I did it the week before. I didn't get pictures until last week so does that count? I have two HUGE windows in my room and I love using it as an extra display. I'm in an outdoor school so it's like I have my own little display cases. This activity is from A Cupcake for the Teacher.

 We have been working on fractions for a while. I do Saxon Math so we are always spiraling. We have done a ton of fraction activities, but Amy Lemons' pizza was by far their favorite.

 I bought myself a new camera. It's the Canon Rebel T4i. I love it so much. I've seen a ton of people on YouTube using it as well as other bloggers.I've always heard great things about Rebels, but I never wanted to spend the money. After my friend got one though and I was able to use it myself, I knew I had to have one. Here is a picture of my adorable little wiener dog (Dachshund) Pippin!

You guys want to hear something crazy? My husband and I were getting food from our local Mexican restaurant (my favorite food ever!) My husband saw something and he thought it was a bat or something very strange looking. We pulled up closer and it was an owl! I was so excited. Owls are one of my favorite animals and I was freaking out! It looked at us and I scrambled to get my camera out. I was lucky to get this shot because some guy scared it away. I will never forget those sweet little eyes.

 Speaking of owls...I have been working on a new file for the past couple weeks. I am so excited to be finished with it and be able to share it with you.

 I love owls and I love Valentine's Day. It's probably one of my favorite holidays. There is so much pink, purple, candy, and love all around. I can't help but be happy on Valentine's Day. Also, The Beatles are my favorite band of all time. No joke! I can't express how much I love them, especially George Harrison. :-) They were a major inspiration for the name of this file.

This file comes with so much. There are four crafts included as well as letter and writing templates. I will be showcasing a new craft each day this week including a how to video on each one. You will not want to miss out! For the early birds I am having a sale. You can pick this file up for 20% until the end of tomorrow.  I hope you enjoy!!!

I'm linking up over at...


  1. I was selected for jury duty the FIRST WEEK of school this year. I wrote a letter and was excused. Yikes... that would be a real treat! Also, it has been FRIGID here over the last couple weeks. Lots of snow and ice on the playground- always a joy on recess duty. Cute pizza lesson!

    1. Oh man, that's happened to more teachers than you would know. I'm glad they make exceptions for teachers. One of the many perks. :-)
