We Love Books Linky with Deanna Jump. Picture Day Editable Note Freebies and More

I am super excited to be linking up with the amazing Deanna Jump 
for her Book Linky. 

I've wanted to do a blog post on

so Deanna’s linky just helped me get my patootie in gear.  This book tells a story every teacher can relate to in that the main character Josephina Caroleena Wattasheena has a slight problem staying focused.  SAY WHAT???

(click on the pictures if you're like me and can't read the small format)

She is always wondering about how things work rather than what she should be doing. 
 Sound Familiar???

I bet you have a few students’ names on the tip of your tongue right now.  Don’t you??? I know I do!

Joshephina is always fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling with something; she’s pretty much a tornado in action tearing up everything in her path. I love the way this story ends, it's a great reminder for us that every child has a talent and sometimes our weaknesses are our strengths.  I hope you love this book as much as I do, you can pick it up on Amazon.  

I have also put together a 3 free activities to go along with the story as well as some picture day reminders that are EDITABLE in PowerPoint. You can pick up your copies here. ( with all the fidgeting, fiddling, fuddling, and foopling in this story you could also do a great lesson on alliteration .)

No, I haven't been teaching 99 years but I did get to celebrate my Aunts 99th birthday with her last Sunday and Tuesday.   Well when you are 99 years old you celebrate as often as possible.  We had Aunt Opal's BIG party on Sunday when everyone was available and cupcakes on Tuesday for her actual birthday.  100th Day Party Guest????

In honor of my sweet aunts 99th birthday I am having a 99 cent sale on many of the items in my store, including most of my monthly printables.  You can check out the sale  at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Alison-Funk

I will pop back in later tonight or tomorrow to link up with Deanna Jump for her book linky and as always there will be some freebies to go with it.

Bye Bye Firsties and a Giveaway!

Hey all!  I’m a little embarrassed by how long it has been since I posted.  Hi! :::waves:::  It’s Caroline!  I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth.  I had a super busy year with a class of kiddos and my boys at home that kept me moving until I passed out at 9 PM!  Haha!  Now I’m on summer break and ready to share some stuff with you.  Alison’s been great at sharing all year.  Thanks girl!

So, since I’ve been away SO long, I’m going to give away my new product, “Good-bye First Grade!  I will give this product away to the first 2 people who comment (make sure you put your email!).  Comment away and I will send it your way!  I’m really excited to share this.  It turned out so cute!

Here are some pictures of the project during and after.  It always cracks me up to see how the kids draw their faces!

Can't wait to see your comment!  I also put it on TPT for $1.00 for a FLASH sale so if you miss the giveaway, it's still 50% off!
