Proud Mama and Multiplication Division Product plus Choice from my Store Giveaway

 Wohooo!!!  Lots of reasons to be proud and thankful this week.  
Thank you to McKell, the superteacher, for giving a concrete example of my happiness.

#1 Lily is still alive!
There was a small mishap last week including a velcro harness that I didn't attach tightly enough.  After realizing I was dragging a harness minus a dog, I ran screaming (in my hoarse teacher voice of course) down the busy road in my fluffy boots in the dark.  Thank heavens my little gal was smart enough to sit in a pile of leaves in the gutter until I came to get her.  I don't know what I'd do without sweet Lil' especially if I was the cause of her demise.  This was my unproud mama moment.
 
#2 I just finished another product for TpT - Finally!
I have stockpiles of stuff I've made for my classroom, but turning these into something other people can use takes me forever.  Here is my newest product.  I'll be giving away 3 of these.  All 3 winners can also choose another product from my store too!  Just fill out the Rafflecopter below and I'll choose 3 winners and announce the winner this weekend.

a Rafflecopter giveaway #3 Look at these amazing Super Teachers!  
Thank you to the sweet and amazing teachers who sent me pictures of their Super Teacher Halloween costumes.  It truly did make my day to receive these.  You guys look hot and quite super-teachery in my humble opinion!  I like to consider myself the proud mama of these darling super teachers.
 
#4 I received an e-mail from one of my first students (now 21 years old!) last week.  What fun to hear from him.  He thanked me for helping him work on his reading.  What a sweetie!  Look out ladies!  He's 21 and lives in Utah.  That's marrying age around there!  :)

#5 I have the whole week off and so does my hubby!
I am so excited to see some great movies, hang out with friends, and celebrate Thanksgiving with a 5K, dinner out, and pie (ordered from the yummiest cafe in Boulder) with friends (who are providing ice cream from the yummiest place in Louisville).

#6 New giveaways
I find that my favorite new "downtime" activity consists of entering blog contests.  I love all the new bloggers I find as I enter.  Here are the giveaways I've entered recently and so should you.  Click, click, clicking is relaxing and the chance of winning something is exciting!

  9. I think reviewing multiplication and division by moving around the room is a terrific idea.
    I know my students will love it as well. Thanks for sharing!

  13. OMG, I'm so sorry you had a little incident with your doggy. I'm glad it worked out well because now I don't feel so bad about smiling when I read about you running down the street in the dark with your fluffy boots. Hopefully there are no further mishaps. Good luck with the TpT sale this week!
