What I was up to today...

Besides working on my favorite craft project so far, I had a pretty full and crafty day!

I started my day off seeing The Dark Knight Rises with my hubby and our good friends at 12:01am, so we didn't make it home until around 3:45 am! It was one of the best movies I have ever seen, but I won't post any spoilers, I promise!

I absolutely could not believe what I saw when I got home and turned on the news, and my heart goes out to the people affected in Aurora, CO. What an incredible tragedy...

Then at the incredibly early hour of 10:00 am (which is pretty early when you go to bed at 4:30 in the morning!) I met up with two of my amazing colleagues to catch up and talk about the upcoming school year. Afterwards, we headed to Michael's, where I picked up some great deals!

So cute! I'm going to put it with my school keys :)

I also picked up some frames that were on sale, 50 cents a piece!! I made this poster after seeing the phrase on Pinterest and cracking up!


Then I finished my teacher supply box by using mod podge on the top and sides and added my name with some leftover stickers I found in a drawer...


Here's a sneak peek at what I'm working on for Monday Made It #2!

(Can anyone guess what I'm doing?) :)

When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy.

Before the School Year Begins...

I decided that before I can start posting about what I'm doing this year, I needed to share some of my favorite strategies from last year that went really well with the students. I was completely inspired by Kelly Gallagher after reading devouring all of his books at the beginning of the school year! I had the opportunity to go to a Kelly Gallagher workshop at Judson this spring, and it was absolutely amazing! He was so nice when I went up to him (I was terrified and starstruck), and even wrote "You're Welcome" on this piece of paper, because my students actually asked me to THANK HIM for changing the way we read novels in class.  Students + asked me + to say thank you to an author + about school stuff = UTOPIA! Here are some of my abbreviated notes from the day: His TOP Points: Kids should write 4X more than you can physically grade  Students suffer from word poverty. Must get students reading more in order to be exposed to vocabulary. We ne

Another Pinterest crafting project!

Look what I got!!! :) I will be creating this in the next few days  hours, and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the other ones I've seen online! Inspiration: Down the Learning Road It's not exactly the same, but I wanted one that was wider rather than tall. I got the organizer at Home Depot for $16.97! I'm thinking I'll mod podge it instead of paint it, but we'll see! What projects are you working on today?
