Too many things for one title to hold BUT I do need some suggestions!!

OK I have SO Many things to blog about today that I just couldn't fit it all in to just one title. I hope I can fit it all into one post LOL!

First off I was so surprised and so touched that Lisa, over at Teaching Kindergarten Kiddos gave me an award!!! She gave me the One Lovely Blog Award! Isn't it pretty????

I was super honored to get this and now I get to pass it along!
Once you get your award there are 3 rules to follow:
1. Follow the person you get your award from
2. Link back to the person who gave you the award
3 Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers (I am not sure how "new" they are so I hope its OK)
So here are my 15 Bloggers that I want to share this award with (I had to be really careful because I want to give it to EVERYONE!!)

OK that's ONE of many things I want to share today!! OH and don't forget to head on over to join in on your chance to win my giveaway! I started that giveaway on Friday to celebrate 25 followers and BAM! I am now at 52 followers!!! I son't know yet why it gets me so excited when I get more followers but it does! LOL I guess because if you have no followers then you're basically just talking to yourself on here huh?? Anyway!! Click on the picture to go straight to the post about the giveaway so you can join in before its too late!

Next up on the agenda, I am SUPER excited that I finished my calendar patterning packet and it is now up and available at my TPT and my TN stores!! Check out some sneak peeks - I posted a sneak peek of August through March yesterday so here is a sneak peek at April, May, and June!

Finally, this novel post is almost finished! I just need some suggestions. At my old school - every time I say that, I feel like I sound like Phoebe from the Magic School Bus videos LOL - anyway, at my old school we had organizational binders and since our mascot was a dragon we called them DRAGON books. I am sure DRAGON was an acronym for something but I long ago forgot what, anyway at my new school they also use an organizational binder but they don't call it anything but "your binder" B-O-R-I-N-G!!!!!! The one teacher on my team that I have been directed to for questions told me that some of the teachers make a cute cover and maybe put their name on it. She said last year she had Ms. {name}'s Shining Stars and had a picture of a star on it. So I thought I could get creative and come up with my own little thing that could go with my theme - who am I kidding, I have no theme,  its just primary colors so really I could use anything! I want something cute for their binder "name" and I am just drawing a blank. My new mascot is an Eagle but I am not sure I want to call it an Eagle Book, besides I can't find any cute graphics/clip art of eagles. I thought, since they are the "babies" of the school I could do something like Mrs. Foreman's ????? Eaglets but I don't know what!! And again - can't find any cute clip art/graphics of eaglets either. I have also thought about the old standby The BEE (Bring Everything Everyday) Book but I'm not sure I want to go that route either! SO I am coming to all my bloggy buddies on my knees begging for ideas! Please help me to end this creative drought I seem to have going on in my head right now!!!  (Can't wait to read all your great ideas!) Now I am off to eat some caramel popcorn and watch The Bachelorette (Don't as me why I have no clue what draws me into this show)

    1. Thank you Jen! I just love your blog!

  3. Thank you for the award! I am following your blog now. As for your organizational binders, I have called mine many different things. This past year, I had "GO Binders". GO stood for "Get Organized". I think this was my favorite name for my binders. It was simple and my kindergartners could understand the name.

    1. Sue I like that! It is definitely going on the list of possibilities! I could use pictures of cars or airplanes or other things that "go" hmmmm definitely going on the list! Thanks!

  4. Awwww thank you so much for the award!!! You are truly amazing and I love watching your blog grow :)
