It's been a long week for me... and I wasn't even teaching!  Recovering from this tonsillectomy has been rough and painful.  It's not quite the ice cream and naps that people talk about, that's for sure.  A few complications had me down and out, but hopefully the worst is over and this coming week I will be able to get some more rest and build up my food stamina (Jell-O, Ensure, and mashed potatoes are getting pretty tiresome).

This week when I had a few hours of pain relief, I updated some of my TPT products.  I've been mostly making cosmetic changes, and taking a few older items out.  It feels good to clean it all up.

Though I won't be spending this Valentines Day with my firsties, I wanted to share a literacy center I made with you.  This will be a FLASH FREEBIE until midnight (EST) tonight!  I hope you can use it this week with your little ones.  Click HERE to download Sweetheart Synonyms.



  Enjoy your week!

I scored some great loot from the Super Sunday Sale at TPT!  And, of course, I just love that the money I spend on TPT goes to actual teachers.  There were so many items I wanted to buy, but I tried really hard to prioritize what I will need over the next few months.  Here are a few of the great deals I found...

In Science, our next unit will focus on Astronomy.  My resources at school are pretty limited, so I'm excited to have found a great space pack.  After Astronomy, we will move on to our Living Things unit.  We will briefly study plants, but the bulk of the unit will focus on animals.  I can't wait for this one, because we will be following along in writing with our All About Animals Books.  AWESOME!

Then I moved on to a little clipart binge.  I have some projects that I want to work on this month, and this clipart will be PERFECT!

February already?!  Time to link up with Farley at Oh Boy 4th Grade!


Are you sensing a trend here with this month's Currently?!

Yesterday was my dreaded tonsillectomy.  Everything went very well, today I came home from the hospital, and now I'm just trying to manage the pain and keep up with my water consumption.  I'm lucky enough to be staying with my parents, and there is nothing better than a lot of TLC from Mom and Dad!  So for the next two weeks I'll be in my cozy sweatpants, taking frequent naps, catching up on my blogging, and enjoying a lot of Jell-O!  (I'm really, really going to be missing all the good Superbowl snacking this year, GRR.)
