Happy Happy 100th Day

The 100th day of school is finally here!  It will be here tomorrow, anyways. :)  I honestly can't believe how fast 100 days went.  The kiddos were totally excited for the 50th day...the 100th day is going to be even better!  

I created a few FREEBIES for my sweet teacher friends to use.  At this time of the year, I'm a little shell-shocked at how much I spend on TPT items.  I mean, I buy what I really really need and my mouth still drops at the tax deductible total.  Wowza!  

Enjoy these 100th day freebies my friends!  And check out my doorway decorations and baggie toppers for the big day. :)

                        Happy 100th Day!!

Five For Friday! Galaxy Bottle Experiment FREEBIE!

Meet Otis, our newest fur baby at the Baker house!  What a sweet little chocolate lab pup he is!  He's quite a snuggler.  I have a feeling he'll be getting plenty of love.

Just a pic of our Arctic Volcano that erupted students were harmed in this icy experiment. ;)

I am so happy to see my unit flying off the presses at TPT.  Makes me excited that other teachers like my work. ;)  You can check it out here.


I came across the coolest website called Imagine Childhood.  They have awesome kids activities, from gardening to engineering kits.  We ordered a brick construction kit and a basket weaving kit.  Just a few 4H projects. :)  The products are so cool, check it out here!

And finally, a FREEBIE for my science experiment GALAXY IN A BOTTLE!

This experiment is so quick and easy and best of all, the kiddos get to take it home!  
All you need is: an empty water bottle, water, food coloring, baby oil, and glitter if you'd like some stars. :)  Check out the freebie below!

Happy Weekend!!

Five For Friday + one day???  Post- holiday blogging comes a little slow, folks.  :)  But it's either this or clean my house some more...

So countdown to back to school has officially begun with TWO days left of winter break.  I have barely started lesson plans! Yikes!  But I have created two lovely products that will get me through the back to school winter blues.

I would love to give these beauties away!  At the end of the blogpost, enter the Rafflecopter to win!!

New Years was spent snuggled at home as usual.  Even if we did have a babysitter, do I really want to put on makeup and wear something that requires buttons?  :)  It was lovely and calm.

We spent a few days in Springfield, MO with friends.  The girls were in heaven getting to swim while its freezing outside.  We also tried ice skating and I'm happy to say it was a success!!  Only a bit of crying at the end :)  from one blister, but no broken bones.  I call it good.

Before Christmas break, our school decided to try other math programs.  We are currently in the middle of a module in Engage NY.  I've found this to be worlds different from Everyday Math (what we had before), but I think I like it.  We needed more of a focus.  Have any opinions on Engage NY?  I'd love to hear it below!!

My wonderful mother created super cute baskets for each daughter/daughter-in-law for Christmas.  Here's mine!!

Love it!!!

Don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter below.  I'd love for you to follow my TPT store for sales and freebies!  Help me reach 100 followers and start my 2016 off with a bang! :) 

Happy New Year!
