Didja Miss Me? A Giveaway. And BUTTER!

I've been away for about a week and felt so loved today when Patty e-mailed me, blog commented at me, and sent me a text to check up on me!  :)  I had a bummer of a week last week and didn't do much of anything "extra" when I got home each night.  But I'm feeling more like me again... so I'm back to blogging!

So... first... a GIVEAWAY!  I'm teaming up with Lori at Teaching with Love and Laughter and Sandy at Ms. Fiorini's Stadium to give away some goodies for you for the end of the year!  So... it's the end of the year as we know it giveaway!

All you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS BLOG POST letting us know that you follow each of our blogs and TpT stores!  If you share this on FB and/or blog about it, you can leave an extra comment!  I'll announce the winner here on Sunday morning at the first sip of coffee!

Here is what you can win... from me you can win my set of fillable End of the Year awards!  There are awards for almost anything you can think of and they are fillable so you can use Adobe Reader to type in who they are for, from, and the date!  If you check them out on TpT, you can download the attendance awards for free there!  They are $6.50 on TpT until the giveaway ends too!

From Lori, you can win this adorable Parts of Speech review game... summer edition!  I L-O-V-E this!  What a fun way to show off parts of speech knowledge!

And, last, Sandy is giving away one of her End of the Year memory books in whatever theme you need!  This pic is of the dog book, but she's got them for just about any theme you might have in your classroom.  And if you don't have a theme, just pick your favorite!  Here is the list of themes Sandy has available... bee, camping, circus, construction, cooking, detective, dog, firefighter, frog, furry friends, luau, hollywood, sports, ice cream, jungle/safari, monkey, nauticial, ocean/beach, owl, penguins, picnic, pirate, polka dot, rock star, school, sports, star, super kids, train, travel, western, and zebra... WOWZA!

And, last but not least, BUTTER!

We just finished reading Little House in the Big Woods and we loved it- even my boys!  We laughed so hard at parts and marveled at how life has changed (hello social studies standards!).

We were especially fascinated about churning butter so on Friday, we made our own!

I bought little jars and we poured some heavy whipping cream and a pinch of salt in each one.  My kiddos worked with a partner or two (because they have to shake it for about 25 minutes)... but as soon as they saw the butter starting to form, they were hooked and didn't even mind the shaking!


We ate it slathered on crusty bread... it was a total winner!  I bought way too much heavy cream, so my students begged to do it again this week!  When I asked what they learned, the responses were, "life a long time ago was really hard... but they had awesome butter!".
