Christmas in July~ Day 2 and Saturday Snapshots

Hello again Friends! It's Day 2 of the big Christmas in July sale! I hope that you were able to get some goodies at a great price yesterday!Today's special is a Back to School theme! I know some of you are thinking about heading back very soon. It's always great to get a jump start on planning even if you don't go back for a while. The time flies by way too fast!

A favorite story I always like to read to the class during the first week back to school is If You Take a Mouse to School. This colorful set of sequencing cards can be used in a pocket chart, in a small group or as a whole group cut and paste activity. I found the cutest graphics to use to represent the events in the story! After enjoying the story and sequencing activities, I have my students write their first classbook page about other silly things that might happen if you take a mouse to school.

 It's 50% off today!

A few years ago, I attended  professional development to become a trainer and pioneer of the first of the SMARTBoards in our district. It was at that time that my calendar set immediately came off of the wall! If you are fortunate enough to have this great technology in your classroom, consider doing your morning calendar/morning meeting the interactive way! This item is great to welcome the kiddos back to school and it can be used all year. This is a fun file for the littles because I have animated it with sounds. You can even upload your favorite calendar songs! It is decorated with darling ThistleGirl graphics to really catch your student's attention. The SMART Notebook file is going to be updated soon with some new pages and the new school year. If you get it now, you will receive the update free of charge!

What a fun week I had! I'm linking up with Miss Nelson to share some really random photos with you.

It's been a hot one for sure! At one point yesterday, the car temp was at 98 degrees!

We went to the water park and wave pool three times this week! Ahhh! 

 I live very close to two beautiful beaches. This is the splash park at our Lake St. Clair beach. We like to get ice cream there!

It was really nice to come home to the house all nice and cool. I am thankful for my brand new air conditioning unit! My old unit decided to quit over the 4th of July weekend.

 This hair product is my new best friend to beat the frizz! It smells really good too!

And then there was the trip to the oral surgeon. Yes, we have impacted wisdom teeth and they need to come out at age 14! Poor kid. The surgery is scheduled for Christmas break. Can't take the chance of messing up the beautiful result from our orthodontist.

Yesterday, I met up with my teaching partners for lunch at Panera Bread and then headed over to Michaels to fill our cart with supplies we need for our classrooms and projects. We were able to get a cart full at 25% off! Yay!

I saw this at Michaels and just had to have it! I don't think I'll ever outgrow Hello Kitty cuteness. :)

 The coupon is good through today! Sale items are included too!

  1. Wisdom teeth are NO fun! I got mine taken out almost 10 years ago and literally still remember the experience. Everyone handles it differently though! Best of luck! :)

  2. It's been hot here in the midwest too, but I'm not complaining I prefer hot over cold. i wish I lived near a beach; I'm jealous:)

  3. Well, you have been busy this week! We are "shopping" for a new air conditioning unit right now too. It is one purchase that I am not looking forward to-but it is a necessity not a luxury where I live. I completely forgot about the Michael's sale. I have to go today. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. What a week!! That Hello Kitty cup is sooo cute! I am a huge huge? I have her bow tattooed on my wrist. I must have that cup! Don't you just wish that Michael's offered that discount all the time? I hope you had a nice time at Panera this week; I love that place. Have you had the cinnamon crunch bagel? My fave!

  5. Our swamp cooler died on us too - luckily we just had to replace the motor! I might need to head out to Michael's today as well!

  6. Looks like you had a great week. That waterpark looks fabulous. 25% off your whole cart. I wish I had that coupon.
    THanks for linking up.

  7. Yikes! Wisdom teeth coming out at 14? I held onto mine until my 40's. I wanted to make sure I got all the wisdom I could out of them. I used the 25% off at Michael's too! Of course I didn't get a WHOLE cart full of goodies. Good job on putting that discount to good use!
