My blog is having a birthday!

This week is the 1 year mark for my teaching blog! (My classroom blog will be 5 years old this summer!) I am terrible when it comes to holding back my love for celebrations...I can never wait until the actual day and love to start the gift giving early. ;-)
True to that statement I am offering a FREEBIE  now as a Blog Birthday Gift to you. I am thrilled to have met so many talented and wonderful teachers through my blog and appreciate that you take time to visit and see what's happening "In The Teachers' Lounge".
In my classroom we are beginning our SEA LIFE unit and my freebie goes along with the unit. It's called FISH STICKS! (not the edible kind though....boy, they were a favorite of mine as a kid...but I digress...LOL!) Anyway, the freebie helps students as they learn to make tally marks to match numbers. Please visit my Teachers Notebook Shop to get a copy. I hope your students will enjoy playing with the Fish Sticks! ;-)

(Look for more freebies later this week)

HAPPY BLOG BIRTHDAY to one of the sweetest bloggers ever! I can't wait to meet you in person someday. I still and always will remember all your words that kept me motivated through times I have wanted to quit and run the other direction. THANK YOU for being a friend. And what a great week to have a birthday. You should announce your birthday on TBA. It is the perfect week for parties! (And remember our other blogs started the same time too. That is so weird. We are certainly meant to be friends. :)

Cindy said...

I look forward to meeting you too someday. Thanks for stopping in and sharing your sweet thoughts. I am glad to have been of support to you, the task of pulling teachers together for TBA is momentous, and wonderful all mixed together. Thanks for all you do and for bringing so many fabulous teachers together! I too think there was a bit of fate at work ;) (Happy Blog Birthday to you too.
