Love to Joplin Linky Party and a *Freebie*

I'm so happy to be participating in this linky party.  Deedee over at Mrs Wills Kindergarten received an email from a teacher in Joplin, MO, whose town was cut in 1/2 by the F5 tornado that ripped through last May.  Many of the elementary schools were either detroyed or damaged.

Think about everything that was lost, most importantly, think about what it would take to rebuild emotionally as well as their personal classroom materials/files.  I can only imagine what kind of school year this has been for them.

I just went into my files and started clicking away - giving anything and everything I've created over the years.  You don't need a blog to do the same.  Here is the email address of Erica, the teacher that contacted Deedee.  She would like to go to her grade level meeting {Kindergarten} on Monday with a whole slew of goodies for her colleagues to help sparkle up their day.

 If you would rather send a gift card to TpT where teachers are selling so many classroom goodies you can go {HERE} and have it sent to the above email address. 

Thanks so much!

Here's a freebie for a game I usually play at the beginning of the year, but have since modified to use throughout the school year.  The original idea came from my dear friend from way back when, {4th grade!?!?} Christy, who also teaches first grade all the way on the other side of the state...waaaaa, I miss her!!!!!!

Hope you have a nice long weekend to enjoy like I do...

  4. Love the game! I can't even imagin lossing everything, your house, your classroom, and some family members! So many people were stranded! It is so devastating! I am glad we can all pitch in and help out!!!

  5. Holly, thanks for your comment at the best endings! Our mall lost its last bookstore about five or six years ago!! It is depressing. I have an iPad I read on sometimes but I still would rather have a real book. They smell good! Thanks!
