My September SLANT Box!

I came home last night to this envelope of goodness. Ignore the water bottle in the background. It is just a water bottle. Focus on the envelope. It says Air Mail in French. For real.
 I was matched up with Dawn from Apples, Owls, and Peppermint Mochas. She is a super sweet teacher from Manitoba, Canada. She sent me the BEST gifts! 
 Hilarious sticky notes and coasters, fun erasers, a grape (my first!) Scentos Marker, a really cool sustainable ink pen, a fab owl bag, and an AH-maizing journal. Hey Girl indeed. 

Such a CUTE notepad! 

I HEART this adorable owl bag. 

 There are no words. 

Dawn nailed it. She really surprised me with these fantastic gifts. Totally made my week. 
If you want to have this same wonderful experience you should check out the SLANT Box on Jameson blog, Lesson with Coffee.
You won't be disappointed.

Finally a post! October Currently...

Wow! October 3rd ALREADY! I have been a total blog slacker lately. To redeem myself, I am linking up (albeit a few days late) with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade... for the October Currently.

I am listening to the FAB The Big Bang Theory. I have seen most of these episodes multiple times and still crack up at each one. I heart Sheldon.

I am loving my sweet group of kiddos this year. I have been out sick all week and they have been so well behaved for their substitutes.

I really have WAY to much to do to be sick right now. Ugh. Fingers crossed I am better in the morning.

I so want to feel totally better! Being sick is tough, but when you have 23 little friends waiting for you to get better, you can never get better soon enough. Whoa, really didn't mean for that to rhyme.

My district has started using Power Teacher for EVERYTHING this year. Unfortunately, it rarely works. Makes it pretty difficult to get grades done.

Time for a fun treat! There is a wonderful giveaway going on over at  The Primary Chalkboard. You should really check it out!
