Did You Win? *Freebie*

So, I found the mean, median and mode of my comments then divided it by pi and found my three winners....

Naw, I actually just had my boys choose three numbers - that's as mathematically complex as this girl can get today {or any day}. I'm off this week.  I'm so excited about that.  I'm sorry if you're not - but spring break is right around the corner right?

We spent a lovely weekend up north with some great friends.  The kids had a blast and I claimed my spot in front of the fire and loved chatting the time away with one of my dearest friends. 

On our way up, we stopped by McDonald's...the whole crew.  A nice man held the door for all of us.  I actually said something to him about being a bell-hop or something like that {you gotta love a teacher's sense of humor - at least I didn't call him a door holder and tell him he could get his spot back in line} and he said he accepted tips...

Anyhoo...my friend turned to me and said "I think he's somebody famous"...come to find out it was...

Kris Draper - Detroit Red Wings
So, if you're a hockey fan and you were wondering..he's a funny guy with manners to boot! 

Okay, so the three winners of my All You Need is Love giveaway are....

I don't want to toot my own horn, but I do love my Common Core Nonfiction Writing Unit!  I used to dread doing this with my first graders because the process was so crazy and I felt torn in a million directions and I felt like my kids didn't really get out of it what I wanted or needed them to.  I finally found a nice, organized system and actually LOOK FORWARD to teaching this unit!

My kids are already talking about that pesky leprechaun that came to their classrooms last year and left them in disarray!  I can hardly believe March is almost here.  I guess I know what I'll be doing during my time off this week...

It's not done yet - hopefully this week my boys will let me work on it!

Here's a freebie from that pack!

  1. How cool is that that Draper was your bell hop? Slightly jealous! Enjoy your week off! It is starting to feel like we have the week of in northern michigan thanks to all this crazy winter weather.

    Apples and Papers

  2. And I'm sure he went home and told that same story to his family and they more than likely googled you and found a picture of you and your blog and told everyone how excited they were to meet you in public! And how polite you were too. Being famous is pretty cool! I'm glad to call you one of my more famous friend!

    1. You're a funny one, Patty! My boys were bummed that none of us were brave enough to ask for his autograph...or tickets! HA! It just made my day to see him with his family at Mickey D's...holding the door like a regular guy!

  3. WOOHOO!!! I just did a little celebration dance, no kidding. Thank you, Holly!

  4. Aww...I was jealous with the "Up North" reference and then I kept reading and read about Draper. I miss Michigan so much!!! At least I can watch my Red Wings on my Center Ice package (thanks hubby!!). Who would guess he would be eating at McDonald's!!
