It's Been a Computer Filled Day... Updates, Linky, and Giveaway!

I have literally been on the computer since 9:30 this morning.

I have done my 50some ELA report cards and the 26 for my homeroom.

I have e-mailed, lesson planned (we use and I LOOOVE it!), and worked on files.

The files are all updates... so if you have bought any of these, please re-download!

I am in the process of adding a little more to all of my $3 classroom/hallway hunts.  Today I updated 10 of them.  I added "I can" statement cards to all of them and also added a 2nd activity to each one.

I updated:

A Feast of Fractions
Be a Base 10 Star
Find the Force- Contractions from Pronouns and Verbs
Hunting for Adverbs
Tick Tock... Time hunt to the hour and half hour
Tick Tock... Time hunt to five minutes
Totally Awesome Adjectives
What's Missing?- ch, sh, 
Word on the Move syllable hunt
You're Going Camping- a your/you're homophone hun


A linky!!!

Mrs. Reed at Flying into First Grade is having another "Let's Get Acquainted" Linky party.  Last week I joined her "Two truths and a lie" linky and admitted that I, the lover of all musicals, has never seen "The Sound of Music".

Today she's having a NOUN linky and we have to share our favorite person, place, thing, and animal!


My favorite person...

My hubby!  We've been together since 1997 when we were in high school!  We were married in 2004 and the rest is history.  I love this guy!  He's supportive, fun, handsome, and loves me at my worst...
My favorite place...

NEW YORK CITY!!!!  We went in the summer of 2011 and I would do just about anything to be able to return.  I was born for the hustle and bustle of city life.  I love that place!  I WANT TO GO TO THERE!

My favorite thing...

LIONS football!  Though I do often wish I could go back to that time in my life when I didn't care a snit about football, I do love it with all of my heart.  Sundays during football season are a hyped up day in my house.  We're wearing our Lions gear, shouting at the TV, and singing the "Gridiron Heroes" song whenever there's a touchdown!  I'm trying to talk hubby into getting season tickets this year... I feel like I have him really close to breaking!  Here we are at the game last year!

My favorite animal...

I feel like it's cheating if I choose my own two dogs.  Though they are my favorites.  I mean, look at this picture of my Sam and try not to go, "Awwww!".  I know you're doing it right now!  Click on it and check it out when it's nice and big... he's so stinkin' cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My love though, is otters!  They are so dang cute!  We recently read about them in class and I gushed over how much I love them and one of my sweeties brought me a little stuffed otter the next day!  Too cute!  I think I love them so much because they remind me of Sam!  Look at this pic... see the resemblance?

And... last... a GIVEAWAY!  I'm helping Rachel celebrate her bloggy birthday by giving away the winner's choice of any of my classroom or hallway hunts!  You can click that last link to check them out and start thinking about which one you want if you win!


I hope you'll head over and shoe Rachel some bloggy b-day love!
