Monday Made-It (8.25.14)

It's almost the end of August.  Many of you are back to school and I feel like the least productive person on the planet.  I'm keeping two small humans happy every day which is enough work for me right now.  Fortunately, I was able to carve out a little time to put together this blog post and link up with 4th Grade Frolics for the Monday Made-It linky.

This one was made for my friend and #1 blog stalker.  Her birthday was coming up and she is getting ready to head back to school after having baby #2.  She says she's going to miss me this year, so I thought I would give her something to remember me by.  I got her a box of her favorite flavor of Spark and labeled each packet inside with either an inspirational teaching quote or teacher humor.  Here's how the gift turned out:

(each packet had it's own little quote on it)

Inspiration, New Products, and More!

I saw this today and it spoke to my heart.  Teaching is one of the hardest jobs, but one of the most rewarding at the same time.  I will certainly miss it this year!

I'm home with my two kiddos full time this year.  When I have a spare moment I have been busy creating some new products and updating others.  As you can imagine, spare time is hard to come by with a newborn, toddler, and husband who is busy helping to build our new house!  

A new product I created was for Gooney Bird Greene.  This book is perfect for 2nd graders.  I use it when we are building stamina for writing.  Gooney Bird Greene tells absolutely true stories and the kids can't help but want to write just like her. 

I just completed the remaining books in The Magic School Bus chapter book series.  This wasn't an easy task because there are 20 different books all on a wide-range of science topics.  I love the books because they really draw students in with a combination of fiction and nonfiction.  Since the series is finally complete, I was able to put all of the book packs into a bundle.  Here are some pictures to see what's included:

Finally, if you're following my Facebook page you already know that I recently updated my Chocolate Touch pack.

Up next I'll be updating my book tub labels, dice game packs, & working to finish the Horrible Harry series.  Whew!  Just reading that goal makes me tired!

3 Months

I just looked and noticed that almost three months has passed by since I last posted here. I could go on and on with excuses, but here's the real reason:
This little man joined our family in June.  We are so fortunate because his big sister loves him to pieces!  I have decided to take a year off to stay home with my babies.  I still plan to keep creating and sharing along the way.

One of the first things I'm going to do today is shop the big TpT sale.  I have a lot of clipart calling my name!  My store will be 20% off.  If you use the promo code BTS14, you can save an additional 10% (total savings of 28%).

The only product I'm going to highlight right now is my new Magic School Bus Bundle.  I managed to finish up the series this summer and have now bundled all of the books into one pack.  The books are written at a 3rd grade level, but the books work great for read alouds, too.  Look at the pictures below to find out more about this pack.
