This and That

09 June 2011
Hello, blog buddies.  I am so sorry that I have not posted as much lately.   I have been so busy.
First, I want to thank you for all your kind words and support for my post on becoming a published author.  A couple people asked me if I would do ebooks.  I think I will stick with TpT for now.  I also don't plan on proposing another Scholastic book for a while.  If there are any requests for materials you would like me to make for TpT please let me know in a comment.  I plan on tweaking my older items on TpT and creating new ones this summer.

School is still going full speed.  We have two full weeks of school left.  Today was over 90 degrees in my classroom!  I feel spent. This week my first graders are taking the TerraNova Exam.  I have embedded some punctuation test prep that we did.
Yesterday, was Paige's award dinner.  Click here for my link on Paige's award.

We had Molly's retirement party today.  Molly is our class pet, a guinea pig.  She is over nine years old.  That is ancient for a guinea pig.  She has not been looking well (this is an old picture of her) and I thought it best that she spend her final days at my house.

I hope you are keeping cool!  Happy Summer!!!!


  1. I have enjoyed the posts featuring Molly.

  2. Adorable punctuation activity! Poor Molly. :( I'm glad you're bringing her home. And that temp in your classroom is ridiculous! Good luck on your last few days of school.

  5. You are so kind and caring! What a wonderful way for Molly to leave the room, a retirement party! I will have to keep that trick up my sleeve for the future! The picture of you and Paige is beautiful!
    Enjoy the last few days!
