I say that a lot (see poster above)
A LOt A LOT in my class.
Not MEAN or anything
but when they ask
how do you spell that
or I don't know or
I don't get it...
I usually say
USE your brain!!!
With that said... I found this awesomeness at the soon to be gone Borders
ON SALE of course (5 buckaroos I think)

yeah -- it is sideways BUT I am being lazy and don't want to reload
can't BLOGGER let us turn them ...WHAAAA

I had to have it!!!  It is a silicone BRAIN ice-cube tray!!!
I wanted it to make those really cute recycled crayon creations
I have seen all over Pinterest!!!
I explained to my Hubby what I was going to do and in his
dorkiness
(I {PUFFY} HEART dorks)
he took the tray into the garage and
filled it with some type of plastic concoction!!!



AND WHAAAA LAAAA

I am thinking of spraying them
gold or pink and handing them out as awards!!!


Like a BRAIN-iac award or something
Brainy like that!!!


I loved this SOOOO much I sent hubs back to Borders
and he got me these...

this one has 2 radios 2 microphones and 2 dollar signs
I am thinking
Great Listener
Wonderful Presentation for Author Share
and
NO CLUE for the $$$$


Happy face will be for a GREAT day!!!
I figured when they reach the top of
my clip chart they will get one of these!!!
Hubby is going to be busy!!!
I don't have too many kids reach the VERY top of my chart so
maybe he will have to make 2 or 3 sets!!!

ANYWAYS...
 I am thinking I could still do the crayon thing
 and hubs said plaster of paris might work for others without a hubby that knows how to make plastic
but for now he has a little side job...
making stuff for me!!!!

I have made something for you too...if you want it!!!
I had these made as wallet size prints at Costco and will hand them out with the BRAIN!!!

Use Your Brain


SOMETHING ELSE you might like....
I have a lot of questions about how I make my signs and WHERE I  get my FANTABULOUS graphics from...
WELL
tune back in tomorrow because I have teamed up with the
AHHH SOME girls over at
for an OUT of this WORLD give-away!!!
details will come tomorrow!!!

and they LOVE LOVE LOVE teachers!!

ps the give-away is valued at over $800
YEP you read that right
OVER $800!!!!


and can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tell me how to # my comments!!!
I have a feeling that I might need a comment counter!!!

where in the world is....


I just saw
a really neat post on

The First Grade Parade

She was asking if Dallas area teachers were interested in meeting up...
I live in Universal City, Texas (right outside San Antonio) and would LOVE
to meet up BUT it is kinda far away and
we just got back from there
so I am crossing my fingers hubby might want to take another road trip!!!

ANYWHO... I started thinking I have NO CLUE
where everyone is from...
I know some but not most!!!
I thought
I could set up a guestbook and let's see what happens.
After it has been up for awhile
I think I can share the HTML code and others can post it too.
That way there are not a swarm of guestbooks...does that make sense.
We could all share the same book!!! YAY

so sign up today and spread the word
let's see how many teachers we can get :)




you can use this poster / sign
to spread the word...
THANKS

you asked for it... LOL


I had a couple of requests for a blank "we do" poster....
soooo.....
i added it to the SCRIBD download
on the post below :)
I also had questions about how big I was going to make this poster...
I found out yesterday that since I make these in PowerPoint and save them as Jpegs
that the bigger I make it the lower the res gets....
BUT if you print from your printer...
on a normal 8x11
they turn out fine.



MY goal is to get on my PS and get this in high res along with my
"famous farley quotes" and get them on scribd for you too.

BUT not until my girls win the WORLD CUP!!!

thanks boston.com for the pic

GO USA!!!

thanks & a freebie

As a quick thank you for being
at ALMOST
300 followers!!!
Here is a FREEBIE
for ya!!!
THANKS so much...
never in a bajillion years would
I think I would have 300
well almost 300 followers!!!
THANKS!!!

we do

Farley needs a filter...

I found a
FaBuLouS LiNkY PaRtY







and I couldn't wait to join...
I am known to say some CraZy FuNNy things!!!
the kids think it is a riot and thank goodness
4 out of 5 dentists recommend me
or I would be in trouble!!!
JUS SAY-N

I have been working on some posters
of MY
"FAMOUS" sayings
and this Linky kicked
my keester into gear to finish them...
(i was about to say made me get off my
butt to finsh them...but I don't stand while on the computer)

So here are my finished posters with some explaining :)


1. I HATE dislike when a student hits another student
 or scratches or pushes or you fill in the blank...
and when asked why they say...
SHE MADE ME or
HE DID IT FIRST
(if you did not say the above bold print in
an annoying kid voice please go back and repeat...
THANK YOU)
and so I tell them this...

2. If they do not get the above statement
I then ask them...
Well if he kissed you would you KISS him back?
that is usually followed by a YUCK!!! or some other
~ I just found a bug in my lunch~ face
AND to tell you the HONEST truth
most don't get it...
some do
It might just be my sarcastic DIVA-licious
personality spewing out!!!
BUT WHATEVER...here's your sign (HA HA HA)
 3. During Writer's Workshop
some of my sweet babies
just cannot stay QUIET...
so to gently remind them
and to save my SHHHHH for later use...
I say in my sweetest teacher voice...
 4. After I check for understanding
and know for sure they are ready to be let loose on independent work I say...
 5. I am all about ReALiTy TV but just not in my classroom...

 6. If they ask silly questions or I want them to think a little harder...
 7.  I LOVE this quote and
have NEVER used it in my class BUT
with a poster this CUTE
I will be saying this a lot next year!!!
 8.  I tease my kids that if they leave early
they have to bring me back a Sonic drink...
some do & I act like the Prize Patrol
walked into my class with a BaJiLLioN $$$
when they do.
My former FaVe was an apple JUICE slush
BUT I am saddened to say
that due to Sonic wanting to fill up our landfills with apple juice
juice boxes they NO LONGER
have apple juice on TAP *tear*
so my new fave is
cranberry-grape
9. I am all about sharing
BUT the PiGGy fLu put me over the edge so
I bring you this...
10.  I am NOT claiming this as my own...
I am simply sharing this FICTIONAL NEVER happened in my
classroom saying...
After the fabulous, fantastic, fantasy teacher finished telling
her NOT REAL class that they need glue and scissors for the
next activity and she SWEETLY and KINDLY explained
how cutting NEATLY and gluing straight will be crucial in
completing the task perfectly...a made up student asked...
do I need my scissors and glue???
and so the prim and proper probably made up teacher 
lost her teacher filter and  replied.....(see below)
and lived the rest of the school year in a class where fictional kids
purposely asked if they had to use scissors or glue so some-one could reply...

 11. and my last one
I have VERY expensive pencil sharpeners
and I explain that pencils smaller than your pinky
should NOT go into the sharpener...
If I break I cry...If you break you BUY!!!
(not really but it works)

i have more...
but I had to stop to cook dinner...
PRETTY sure hubs and bubs would like dinner tonight :)

I had so much fun reading through the other entries..
my favorite was...
did they have scissors or a knife...
then they didn't cut you...
even in the older grades I get that

oh and if these posters are something you might want
let me know in the comments section.  
I have been debating over possibly putting them up for sale and sharing some others for FREE...

hope you have a beaver licking good Friday

I mean a finger licking good weekend :) *wInK*


*****
update as of June 2013...
this is probably one of my most pinned posts and tons of you have contacted me to see if I sell these...
I do BUT they are slightly altered because some of the graphics I used in the above posters were not for commercial use....
here is a preview of what I have 
it is in my teacher's notebook store and 
sadly the file was lost when my computer ate it... so it will only be on TN!!!
here is the link...
if you are interested :) 
and I will run a summer sale until Sept 1st 2013 on these :)
thanks for all the pins...
