I won't tell you how many have gone by, but I'll tell you how I celebrated my birthday.
I went to Las Vegas!
I actually went by myself to spend a few days with several people I've never met. Sounds crazy, doesn't it? But I've been communicating with so many of these wonderful people for quite a while now, and never hesitated to go out there by myself to get together with my teacher-blogger friends!
I can honestly say that everyone I met was absolutely genuine, interesting, intelligent, and just plain fun! After much communication with these people online, it was fantastic to have conversations face to face!
More about Vegas will be coming in another post, but I wanted to share a little birthday fun with my readers.
I'm having a dollar sale with some of my popular items! These items will be priced at only $1.00 until Sunday night July 21, 2013 at midnight EDT. (I guess that's early Monday morning, isn't it?)
Touchdown R Controlled Vowels is one of my best selling items, and a fun game to practice during reading group or independent practice. It will be $1.00 until Sunday midnight!
Baseball Antonyms is another best seller. Grab it while you can at $1.00 until Sunday midnight!
Figurative Language for Illustration is one of my favorite "illustrating" items. The stuff the kids come up with for these are absolutely amazing! Catch it while it's only $1.00!
Suffixes to Illustrate has been expanded to 65 pages. Until Sunday night, it's only a dollar!
Area or Perimeter? is another one of my most popular products. These are practical applications of when to measure the area or when to measure the perimeter, and it's only a dollar until Sunday night!
Science Review Scoot is one of my favorite scoot games! It's all practical science information that most second or third graders should know, but it's in the fun "scoot" format. These can also be used as task cards.
2013 - 2014 Calendar for Teachers is filled with loads of silly ideas for teachers to bring fun into the classroom. For example, did you realize that July 21st is National Ice Cream Day? I'll bet you could think of some fun ways to celebrate that one in the classroom! Of course, I'll find a way to celebrate this one without the kids!
That's seven items priced at $1.00! I love celebrating my birthday with my readers!
But here's my very favorite birthday gift. My beautiful daughter posted this in facebook today:
I am truly blessed!
