 Thank you for joining my blog, TPT, and TN.  I really appreciate you joining me so much.

Hop on over to TPT, I'm having a sale! Today and tomorrow are the final days of September 2012.  Haven't gotten a paper check yet, but I am going to stay positive.  I know I must create more products and I am working on math now.  If you think of something first grade needs and you haven't seen it in all the other wonderful products out there on TPT, please feel free to leave me a message or email me.  Have a good weekend and buy, buy, buy or sale, sale, sale.

 I am going to extend this freebie give away until next Sunday, October 30, 2012.

I don't know if you are aware that the list of followers on TPT are not listed for the store owner to see.  They are not listed and I think it is only fair to extend the time and allow people the opportunity to follow on Teachers Notebook where I will be able to see your name and be able to get in touch with the winners...please, please.

 Yes, I would love for you to follow my blog, but to have a chance at the freebie of your choice, you must follow me on both TPT and Teachers Notebook. I would love to have lots of WINNERS!

Thanks so much for your understanding and just click on both stores.

  WOW!  I finally managed to do a blog hop! I know to most of you it's no big deal, but I have tried so many time and failed ---it was becoming depressing.  Sometimes it the little accomplishments that make us feel the greatest rewards.  Like out little people who just can't seem to 'get it' and then they do and their smile brightens their face like the sum.  It's a good thing.  Happy me!

Good Saturday morning to everyone!  Hope your week was a good one. We are off to a good start in my classroom--all my little people are beginning to understand that they are 'big' first graders.

Please read the information below, if you have joined my blog----

You may already know this, but I didn't---TPT doesn't list your followers.  When I tried to find out who was following me, I was given a message that told me they were considering making a list of a store's followers available to the store owner.

Teachers Notebook does make a list of your followers and it is easily accessible to the shop owner.

If you are following me on TPT, please also join me on TN and I will be able to contact you and let you know if you won a freebie.  Being on TN would make it easy for me and faster for me to get you freebie to you.

If you have already joined me, thank you so very much.  I think I have joined your blog or store/shop, but if I haven't ---please let me know and I will be most happy to do so, it was certainly just a slip up on my part.  I would love to follow you!

Have a wonderful day, buy, buy and sell, sell!  Some of you are really close to you goal and will be getting a check...I know you have put in a lot of extra long hours and hard work to accomplish this. I'm wishing you all the success and a fast last minute click, clicks for you to reach your goal and more.

Oh, I forgot to tell you -----This give away will last until next Sunday, then the winners will be chosen.  Hope you guys show the love and knock me off my feet!

Okay, all of my Top Teacher friends, I'm really counting on you to come to my rescue and show everyone how it's done.  We are teachers and we know how to get the job done! (Tell that to the politicians!)

I would really, really love for you to ** follow me ** on my Blog and on Teachers Pay Teachers as well as Teachers Notebook.  Look it's really easy, just click on my buttons for TPT and TN.....please,please.

I am going to have a drawing for FREEBIES (games) from my Back to school Reading and Phonics and from my math (game) Geometry.  If you win and your grade level is higher, I can give you (games) from my science - It's a Jungle Out There!

I am going to give away 5 yes, FIVE - in each subject area.  All you need to do is just use your little pointer finger and CLICK---see it's just so easy.  I will follow everyone that follows me---winner or not, see it's a win win for everyone.

I will not be picking---totally fair----a friend of mine at another school will be ask to pick based on numbers and I will let you know as soon as the winners are picked.  I'll post the lucky winners on my blog, on face book and top teachers.

Good luck to you, just point and click, it's so easy.
Now for some pictures of the reading games you could win.

OK, now for the outside of my room.  The Overall Me posters the kids took home and were suppose to have their parents help them with.  I sent a note telling them to help them with the project, but not to actually do the work for them. I was hoping for a little bit more over the top, but I guess the beginning of school is a little bit busy for them. Anyway I still like them and the kids are very proud of their Overall Me, so I'm happy!

We have just finished the third week of school and we have been very busy.  I have 20 students this year and we are off to a good start. These are pictures of the inside of my classroom.

Tomorrow is open house for parents and students.  We will be there from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.  I drive for 30 minutes to get home, so it will be even later for me.  I have taken some pictures of my new room decorations and will get with posting on my blog as soon as this week settles down.
This is the 3rd week of school for us and next week will be progress reports to send out.  We have almost finished the first 3 weeks of school.  I can't believe it is going so fast for me.  We are off to a quick start.  Happy teaching!
