Valentine's Day!

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics  for my Valentine Monday made it... on Wednesday :-) with some pictures of what I have been crafting for my sweeties for Valentine's Day. Our class will be celebrating the holiday tomorrow because we have Friday off for *mid winter break*. I have been thinking about what to make for my kiddos for quite some time, and I really wanted to make sure I made/gave them something that was meaningful, but also something that they would really enjoy and be excited about. So instead of making them a little craft, I put together cute bags full of different things. Here are the different components of my Valentine's gift bags.

1. Pencils! 

My kids have an obsession with bright, striped, sparkly colorful, fuzzy, anything pencils. They love picking pencils from the our treasure jar.... so now they have some cute Valentine's themed pencils to get their writing on! I found these adorable Valentine tags from teacher pay teachers for free!

2. Candy!! 
They'll of course be receiving bubble gum because they always want a piece of my gum! They also will be receiving some delicious chocolate and of course a candy heart bracelet:-) 

3. Free Homework Coupon 
And wa la, after cutting and taping for over two hours....

And you can find these adorable love tags from 4th Grade Frolics

Happy Valentine's Day Friends!!

Currently February

I am linking up with Oh' Boy Fourth Grade to share my currently! 

Listening..... You'll always catch me listening to some good ol country. I am a sucker for love songs, and Hunter Hayes is a cutie:-) 

Loving.... As always, this week has been hectic filled with unexpected happenings. It is always reassuring to know that the Lord is watching over me and has a plan for everything. I try to remember this so I don't freak out!! 

Thinking.....that my classroom is probably trashed because I was out today for a training, and I will also be out tomorrow. I'm not sure if I have shared this yet, but I am a fanatic with my room.... and I know when I go into school on Friday, my eyes aren't going to be pleased.

Wanting.... oh doesn't that sound good!!! I love Cinnabon!!

Needing..... to stop worrying about things out of my control like student home life, the future, the future, ...I could go on and on.

And finally....
Truth: I do have two older brothers. Jeff is 25 attending medical school in Chicago. Jacob is 23, and he works in HR for Chryseler:-) 
Truth: I also love to scrapbook in my free time, but it is very expensive! But, I sure do love it! 
Did ya guess it right? 
Fib: My favorite color is not yellow..... I adore the color purple! 

And, that's my currently for now! 

Have a great February and Happy Wednesday!
