Another Thursday, another Thumbs up Thumbs down post. Read here for the back story of why I started this.
This week I have a couple of exciting posts to share.
Brittany from The SuperHERO Teacher's Adventures and Advice has a Thumbs up post called Today's Topic: Organization. Brittany shares a genius DIY calendar using a cheap picture frame and paint chips...so cute!
Thumbs up to Crystal at Kreative in Kinder for her super cute post called Q &U Wedding. She shares some great pictures of all the activities her kids did during this fun day. I wish I could have been a part of all the festivities!
Kathy Griffin from Kathy Griffin's Teaching Strategies shared a great post called Dr. Seuss Fun Picture App. She has found and shared this super fun app that will have your students all excited for Read Across America Day. This is a must read post and app, a definite Thumbs up!
Thumbs up to my friend Kathie Wainwright from Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher, and the launch of her new book. She is having a 10 day virtual book tour for her book Summer in The City. She is having a fantastic giveaway - 10 lucky winners will win her book. She has also enlisted other teacher bloggers to do a Q&A, book reviews and create products to go with the book. Head on over and check out her amazing book!
The amazing Charity Preston from The Organized Classroom Blog has just launched a new online magazine called The Organized Classroom Magazine. The magazine is jam packed with ideas, tips and tricks on how to keep your classroom running smoothly and looking great! This is a HUGE Thumbs up!
Thumbs up to my daughter for being picked to be the front and center ballerina in their upcoming recital. She has worked so hard and that hard work is finally paying off. We are so proud and she is SOOO excited!
Thumbs down to Downton Abbey season 3 being over and season 4 not starting till January of 2014...ugh!
Thumbs down to 2nd graders not knowing how to tie their shoes because mommy always does it for them.
Thumbs down to the auto correct on phones. The story behind the picture. We were going to the desert over the 3 day weekend to go camping and dirt bike riding. My oldest daughter and husband left Friday and Madison and I were leaving Saturday morning. I told them to text me to bring anything they forgot. This text message came from my 18 year old daughter. Needless to say, I cracked up!
