You Have Homework, Yes YOU! And a Giveaway!

Alrighty,

This is going to be all business.  First, you've all officially been assigned homework.  You need to dust off those cameras, put aside your pride, and snap some pictures of your classrooms. I want to see it all. I want to see those pop cans you have stacked around your classroom sink {Who me?!}, I need to see those anchor charts that aren't a work of art...{Because I know I'm not the only one that will quickly write up an anchor chart on a whim and the letters are all crooked-y and cockeyed but it just has to do and then you'll RE-write them if you want them to be blog-worthy}.

Honestly, I started the linky party for all of us.  Sometimes I take a look around at what's out there in blogland, and I'll be honest, I feel like maybe I'm not doing everything that I can...maybe I can do it better, do it bigger.  That's not all bad.  As teachers we're lifelong learners - that's part of why we teach - it's in our DNA to be in a constant state of betterment.  I'm cool with that.  Buy I'm also okay with me not being perfect...I'm okay with a bulletin board that started off straight and ended up...well, not so much.  It's all good...my kiddos are happy, I'm happy and I'll just be sure that I aim my camera juuuuuust so when taking a picture for all of you...so you'll be none-the-wiser.  Or maybe I won't.

So link up... bring on your good, your bad and your ugly...we'll love you even more for just being YOU!
One of my best bloggy friends, Staci, over at Going Nutty is having a 250 follower giveaway! 

http://goingnuttyinmisssquirrelsfirstgrade.blogspot.com/


It's a good one!  You could win two items from the other Staci's TpT store or three items from Reagan's TpT store, OR you might just win a 10 dollar gift certificate from me to TpT.  That's not all.  Do you remember my cute little coffee cozy that Staci {Nutty Staci, not the other Staci} sent me just because?  She'd like to giveaway one to each of her three winners.  They are more than adorable...


I've got my eye on the 'stache one...but now that I'm looking, I really like the one with the browns and blue flower...hmmm....

To sum it all up...

1. Do your homework, take pictures, link up!
2. Enter Staci's giveaway

That's not too bad, right?

  2. Holly,

    OUCH! That really hurt! Posting pictures of my room was more painful than I thought. . . well, maybe it wasn't the posting of them, but the urge to clean everything up before I took the pictures was! I am not completely anal, but I do have a lot of those tendancies! So take a look if you'd like. . . but ssssshhhh!!! don't tell anyone how messy they are!

  4. So I meant to take pictures yesterday of my mess that is my room. But I was really focused on getting out of school at the end of the day. I had been at school until almost 6 several times last week. So Monday, I'll do it. My room is a mess and my anchor charts when they exist are not so pretty. I do a lot of my anchor charts on my promethean board. So maybe they aren't really anchor charts.
