Blabbing alone! Tonight's Make & Take Project

So, let me be honest.... I do NOT like to speak in public. Put me in front of 18 kindergartners, and I am GOLDEN. Put me in front of 5-500 Adults: panic central!!! BUT, this week, I tried something new! I thought it might be fun to create a project as a make and take through blab. SO, I put it out there! :) If you want to follow along and make this project with me, here is your supply list:
Here's what you'll need....
*1- 9x12 piece of red construction paper
*1- 1-inch square orange construction paper
*1-lunch sized paper bag--Sponge painted brown for more fun

Five For Friday, November 13

Hello, again! I am teaming up again with Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for another edition of Five for Friday!

Did anyone else have time to celebrate veterans in their classroom? I really do think it is important to appreciate those in the armed forces, so I made this freebie, and then my students ALSO used it on Tuesday.

And then, I used my day off for a little pampering. I got my hair done, and went a little darker. 

We made Molly Lynch's Pilgrim graph freebies this week. You can find them here

Speaking of freebies, we completed this one this week. I made it in celebration of meeting some of my TPT goals. Just a small way to say "thanks" to those who support Very Perry Classroom! 
Click here to find it.

Finally, we are proud to announce a location for our Pacific Coast Region Teacher Meetup. If you missed the post, you can find the original here.
We have had many people helping from behind the scenes as well, Andrea, from Always Kindergarten; Shyra from Junior High Core Values; and Sheila, from Sheila Jane Teaching; just to name a few! The amount of giveaways and swag already donated is astounding!!! JOIN US!!!

Five for Friday: November 6

Hello, friend!! I am teaming up with Doodlebugs Teaching for another edition of Five for Friday!

I had a chance recently to hang out at my favorite place... during my favorite time of year. Heart: full....

Three of you can get a month of Rocks Box free. I got another box this week... And it was wonderful!! :) You should definitely try it!!

We LOVE Jack Hartmann.....And since SO many of my students are already meeting standards ahead of time,  so I need to expand on what they know, and Jack is helping us do that in fun ways!! He turns most concepts into a rap or song, and my students LOVE how he "gets down!!" 
Find his YouTube Channel here

Today was the last day of the first trimester. Let me just say: these babies have worked HARD on mastering much!! As a reward, I FINALLY introduced the listening centers, and my kids were in LOVE!! 
Have you read Owl Moon? It's such a good one!!
GAH! Is your classroom a disaster of piles of paper? Please say "yes!" (at least a little bit).... I tackled this drawer today...

And, don't worry, I totally tackled this area as well. My eye still twitches when I look at this picture.....
Happy Friday, friends! Hope you have a relaxing weekend!! 

Currently November

It's that time of the month again, friend! "Currently" happens to be one of my favorite linkys every month! I love seeing who all links up on Farley's blog and what fun they share!! 
I don't know about you, but October can be ROUGH without any breaks! Thank God we have an "extra" hour of sleep during Halloween weekend. I don't know what I'd do without it!! 
Let's get to it!
Listening: How have I NOT found this show before now?! It's right up my food-loving alley. It has the important components that I desire: reality tv, cheesy, food, and travel!! It's available on Netflix, if you're looking for something new!!

Loving: Ok, now that some of my friends have put away the spooky stuff (mine is still out, give me time), we are all starting to pull out our Thanksgiving decorations.  I LOVE any and all holidays. I have a few new ideas to use this year, and am planning a fun new product. :) YAY for the holidays, am I right?!? P.S. I got my first holiday red cup at Starbucks today, and was WAY more excited than a grown adult should be. 

Thinking: Ok, I'll say it: I am SO excited that TPT conference is in Orlando this year. This is coming from a girl who lives on the West Coast. Yes, I know travel will be expensive. Yes, I know that I may have to fly alone. But, MAN! It's going to be fun! This Disney lover has been looking for the perfect reason to travel to WDW for 31 years, and this will be a GREAT opportunity! Plus, I am excited to meet up with some of my ladies from The Primary Punchbowl in "real life!" 

Wanting: I don't know about you, but I am OBSESSED with Nickel and Suede earrings, and I am pretty sure it's Amy Lemons' fault. I spotted them in an Instagram picture, asked where they were from, and have been hooked ever since. The SOFTEST, LIGHTEST earrings ever! Every month, they feature a "Color of the Month," which is on sale. I have to tell you, I have started building QUITE a collection... 
Speaking of jewelry collections: I got my newest Rocks Box, and was sent another beautiful Kendra Scott piece. If you'd like to try Rocks Box out, make sure to use the code ERINBFF522  to try it out and get your first month FREE! The first 3 people who sign up get to try it FREE!!

Needing: Who doesn't need down time?! Friend, pat yourself on the back. You made it through one of the two longest months of the school year. October can be exhausting. But, you MADE it! I am hoping to get some more time to relax this month... I know it seems far-fetched, since the holidays are approaching, but to stay healthy, all parts of our beings need attending to. 

Yummy: This past month, I joined Weight Watchers. I have been really happy with the results, minus a small slip-up this weekend... I don't know what I was afraid of. I can still drink a Dr. Pepper a day! I think I have my mom convinced to sign up with me. I am pretty sure she will like it, because we don't deprive ourselves. One of my FANTASTIC colleagues is a lifetime member, so she has been SO helpful with tips and tricks of the trade. There are some WONDERFUL snacks and desserts that are very few WW+ points! I hope to post some recipes soon!

How about you, friend? What are you "currently" up to? Happy November!!
