Did you download this incredible FREE RESOURCE???? 

Rachel Lynette from Minds in Bloom & the #2 TPT seller for grades 3-5 put this together. Take the time to look at each page. This fabulous resource is a gift from 50 different TPT sellers to all of our followers. We linked each picture to something FREE! 
Here are the items I posted on page 39...check it out! 
 Grinch Dust labels. Each one of our little firsties gets Grinch Dust before we set them free before break.
These are mini grinchy candy bar wrappers. These are perfect to hand out to your students & staff. I even make extra for holiday parties. Cut each wrapper out & tape or glue it around the candy bar. Simple. 


 Finally, our grinchy class book. I have a Grinch shirt to wear just about every day until break. As I type I am wearing fleece Grinch pj's from Walmart....love them! Merry Grinchmas to me!

2. Answer the following questions below.
3. And pass the award to 10-12 fabulous bloggers, link their blogs and let them know you awarded them.
These are my answers:
Favorite color? Pink
Favorite animal? My furry babies, Bentley, Java, & Olive. 
 Here is Java & Mr.Poop-a-lot Bentley
This is the latest addition to our home, THE MONSTER, OLIVE. We share custody of her. She has at least 10-15 outfits including pj's, reindeer ears & a Christmas dress. She is currently sporting a tie dye. Our little hippies all have tie dyes. Big B doesn't fit in clothes so he has to wear bandanas BUT he has them for all occasions. ALL. NOT KIDDING. Did I ever tell you that I sent out the following photo cards for Bentley. I am not embarrassed, I would do it again.
1. Birth Announcement (birth date, weight & inches)
2. Puppy Kindergarten graduation (wearing a cap, gown & chewing on a diploma)
3. Petco Fashion Show (wearing a blue & yellow Old Navy rugby with matching hat)
4. Christmas (I forgot :o( )
5. Birthday (birthday hat that I had to rig because it looked like it was for a toy poodle)
6. Valentine's Day (red shirt)
7. St. Patrick's Day (green shirt, duh)
8. Easter (pink rugby & bunny ears...he's in touch with his feminine side)
9. Halloween (king costume)...well this photo was taken in August because his costume was too tight & would have never fit by the time Halloween rolled around. 
I will prove it by posting them over winter break. I have to scan them in....if I can figure out how to do that. Can you imagine how I will be when we have kids?!?

Favorite number? 39 because that is how old I am staying after 12/20.
Favorite drink? Diet Dr. Pepper....can't live without it! See for yourself.


Your passion?During  the day it's teaching...um hellloooooo! In the evening it's blog stalking.
Giving or getting presents? Getting. LOVE IT. I do like giving too, I'm not that self-centered BUT I prefer getting...lol.
Favorite day? Saturday
Now I have to pass this Sunshine award to other blogs. There are many amazing blogs out there. Here are my daily stalks.
