Hooray for Donor's Choose & TpT News!

Well, their donation doubling has officially begun!

I sent a note home with my kiddos to put a bug in parents' ears and one of my two projects is already funded only 3 hours after dismissal!  So, now we're getting some new computer games from Lakeshore for our student computers and for us to use together with the LCD/Mimio Pad combo (which is AMAZING!).

I am SO hoping my Nooks project gets funded this week too!  If anyone has gift cards laying around and are looking for a project to put them on... I'm your girl!  :)  If you are donating to anyone this week, be sure to do it via their "Giving Page" and enter the code BLOOM when you check out.

I have also just finished adding a bunch of files to my new Teachers Pay Teacher's shop... and *as soon as I can learn how!* I'll be having a "Grand Opening" sale!  Figured it out!  20% off until Friday!  I have about 50 items up...
1st, 2nd - English Language Arts, Reading Strategies, Math -

We just started our weather/water cycle unit today so I'll be posting some pics later!  Tomorrow Steven Courtney is coming to give a concert at my school at 1:00pm.  If you don't know who he is... you must find out!  He's a super fun, energetic kids' musician who just plain ol' ROCKS!

We're currently under a tornado watch, so I'm a bit creeped out!  Time for me to camp out in front of the TV to make sure I can be kept abreast of new and sinister weather... happy Monday!


  1. I am so excited about the donors choose matching too, I hope my project gets funded! Congrats on yours. We have already been in the basement because of a tornado warning - seems to have passed over us for now! Hope your staying safe as well!

  3. That super that you got so much support. Bravo!
    These storms were rough tonight! I was home alone during them and even though I love storms, these were nasty. . . even some hail hitting the windows. I know you will love Steven Courtney. . . He is the best, and we get to see him on Thursday. He always makes you feel so a part of his family. If anyone wants to listen to some of his goofy songs, go to his website. He is from Michigan, but currently lives in Pennsylvania.

    Hello Mrs Sykes

  8. I love everything you have! I bought several things from TPT today but I am unable to download one of them. I cannot get the fillable themed stationary. HELP! My email is if you would please email me. Thanks!

  9. Best of luck to you! Take care of yourself with that tornado coming. I hope you will be okay! Hunker down low...that's what I've heard. (I live in California, so I only have to deal with earthquakes. But I grew up in Chicago until I was 10, and I remember those tornado drills. ;) Stay safe!

  10. I hope you didn't get any severe weather! I'm excited to check out your new store!
