Listening - Yes, football is always the background noise at my house on Sundays this time of year!
Loving - My staff gifts and Christmas card! I wanted to do something different and unique this year for my Christmas card and Pinterest came to the rescue.....or should I say Andrea Dekker and Tilly Claire's Designs! I fell in love with the design of Andrea's card and when I tried to order them, I found that she had it custom made at Tilly Claires. So I decided to try and make my own and here it is......
And if you're looking for gift ideas for your colleagues, here are my staff gifts I finished up last night........
I purchased these match-box style nail files from Current for $3 each. They are so cute and each box has 12 files.I cut the green tags from my cameo, but you can grab the pink tag here if you'd like! I just love the pink and green together!
Thinking - Since I teach self-contained for grades 1 -5 and have the same students for 5 years, I have to reinvent the wheel each year when it comes to holiday crafts and gifts! Here are a few Pinterest ideas you may like.
My wanting and needing.....let's just say are not happening right now!
Tradition - Monkey bread! If you haven't had it, here's the recipe! The tradition goes all the way back to my husband's childhood. Yummy stuff, and even better.....quick and easy on Christmas morning!
Before I go, I have a Santa treat you may like! I just added a Santa letter and list writing frame to my "Let's Write!" Writing Frames Set. These premade writing frames are the perfect solution for those struggling writers! Students fill in the missing parts and then they can copy their paragraph onto a sheet of paper for a perfect paragraph. Two levels are included; level one provides a lined handwriting format for students still working on spacing and letter formation and level two provides regular lined paper for more advanced writers.
So if you've already purchased this set from my store, you can go and upload the revised copy to get the Santa letter and list.....or you snag them below.
If you want the whole writing frame set, they will be 28% off, along with everything else in my store tomorrow and Tuesday for TpT's CYBER MONDAY SALE!!
Have a great week!!
