Let's Get Acquainted!!!+ Due Date Winners!

Happy Sunday Friends,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend off! We're back to another Monday again. I saw this picture on Facebook last week and it so describes how any of us feel throughout the week!

Photo: This was too cute not to share (maybe a tad true too!) ;)

Take note on Sunday night's picture above...SO TRUE! :-)

Now that I'm back in the blogging world, I am stumbling across all of these new ideas and linkies. Today I'm linking up with Latoya from Flying Into First Grade for her Let's Get Acquainted linky.

Every Sunday she puts up a new topic for bloggers to link up about. This week's topic is the 3 most favorite places in your classroom. 

1. My Palm Tree (inspired by none other than the amazing Deanna Jump!)

I don't know what I would do without this palm tree! I've used it as a photo backdrop and it is just a landmark of my classroom. I love it!

2. My student showcase bulletin board: Our Work is a Treasure

My classroom is all pirate themed. I made this pennant to go with my pirate theme. I love displaying student work on there. I overlapped the black and red polka dotted borders to create a look to stand out.

3. My student motivation door

I love the message on this door for my students. They read it frequently when in the classroom. I found the idea on pinterest and a fellow teacher's blog. I want them to know how loved and wanted they are in my classroom. It is something I am going to continue next year, as well.

Go and link up with Latoya at Flying Into First Grade and share your 3 favorite classroom spots!

Thank you to all who commented on my post a few days ago when I announced that I am pregnant!!! We had a lot of good and close guesses, but nobody guessed my actual due date lol. So I am giving away any item from my TPT store to the 2 closest guesses. So when am I due?????

OCTOBER 9th!!!!

Congratulations to Linda Nelson who guessed October 8th and Graciela who guessed October 10th (which is my birthday!) I will be in touch shortly so you can pick an item from my TPT store.

Thoughts please...I have been toying with the idea of starting a facebook page for my blog. What's your thoughts on that? Do you update yourself more through facebook or by reading in blogger? I know lately I've been looking more at facebook than blogger, so I was wondering if it is the same for you.

Have a Super Sunday!,


  1. I love the palm tree. I have been wanting to make one, but haven't yet. I need to do that this summer!

    You Might Be a First Grader….

  3. Love the door! I've seen that on Pinterest too and really liked the idea behind the saying.

  4. I've been wondering lately about the Facebook vs. blogger thing too. I'll be back to see what other people say. LOVE your tree!

  6. Lisa, I LOVE that you are using my door cards! I love that that is the first thing my kiddos and I see each morning!

  7. So glad I found your blog after you won First Grade Fairy Tales' giveaway! Super cute!

  8. Found your blog through Val :) It's super cute and congrats on baby number two! Last time we saw each other I had just had my first son, Xavier, I now have THREE boys!

    Very cute classroom!


  9. Cute pirate theme, Lisa! I did that theme a few years ago and it was fun! Congrats on your newest addition to your family! How exciting! As for a FB page-- I created one to go along with the blog and it seems like double the work but if you are on FB anyway then go for it. I post there too, when I remember to do so and I find I tend to post more as myself than as my blog personality (does that make sense??). One of my friends loves posting questions and gives status updates via her blog page on FB as a way to network more. Hope that helps!
