5 for Friday, Carson Dellosa, and 3 chances to win

Oh my gosh what a week...
I am posting my Find Your Joy
and it will be 5 for Friday...
I know my favorite number is 3 BUT
I have 5 things to share :)

NUMBER ONE



NUMBER TWO

Bub found this butterfly struggling in my parent's backyard and asked my mom if he could take care of it... he found her a flower to rest on.... such a big heart :) LOVE HIM
 NUMBER 3
Our Elf is named Gumbo... yep as in the yummy southern specialty... YUM anyways I have a blast setting him up every morning... here he is fishing with a gummy worm and a bath toy fishing pole and a real fish in the cup below... WHAT??? Bub was so excited!!!
 NUMBER 4
the RACK my class is spreading throughout the school... they are LOVING IT and I know the receivers of the RACK are loving it too!!!... some things we did this week were give a class set of pencils to 3 classes, tape quarters to the sticker machine, give a class set of healthy snacks to a firstie class, and set out random cute pencils :) (((SEE BELOW))))
 NUMBER 5
Carson Dellosa contacted me about doing a review for them and
HOW can you turn that down???
carsondellosa.com

they are one of the bestest companies around for getting teacher supplies and necessities...











so of course I said YES YES YES!!!
did you know they were founded by teachers... me neither so now you do...
you are very welcome *wink*
and one of the items they sent me was this...
a cutie patootie  ladybug pencil topper...
we added a pencil and our RACK tag and
WHA LAA
the perfect little surprise for the littles at our school!!!
we tape them in the Kinder and 1st bathrooms and in their cubbies when they are out at lunch or recess
the teachers talk about how the kids LOVE finding the
"BUGS" and the bathroom requests have quadrupled
because they hope to find one of these...
too bad we only do 3 a day...
the toppers come in a pack of 12 so we can do this for
four days :)
the ladybugs are so cute and it looks like they are chomping on the pencil too :)

do you see that smile... it was his turn to hide a pencil... I pick 4 kids a day to perform RACK and they get to pick from the 4 things I have set aside for that day... usually 1 teacher 1 class and 2 hidden ... and if the ladybug pencils are apart of the choice... they go first... so even fourthies love them :)
GUESS what else they sent me...
a POCKET CHART...
holla....
so I think I need to number this ...
NUMBER 6
I am loving this pocket chart...
and do you see the velcro closure pocket...
YES YES you read that right...
it is a POCKET
BUT the best part is it holds a lot
and because it has the velcro closure your contents stay secure :)
it is AH-mazing how much this pocket holds...
 Here is the 411 (info)
on this pocket chart...
straight from CD (Carson Dellosa)

Mini Essential Pocket Chart - the perfect pocket chart for playing games, tracking behavior,
teaching sight words, and more!
•6 horizontal clear pockets
•1 storage pocket with hook and loop tape closure
•19” x 25”

what teacher doesn't love velcro closures...
 OK and then to top it off they also sent me some
Braggin Badges....
 STICKERS...
which were perfect for the assembly we had today...
every 6 weeks we pick 2 STAR STUDENTS
from every class
and they are recognized in front of the whole school for being AWESOME!!!
and we had some really jealous peeps in the crowd because
my cool Star Students sported
STAR STUDENT stickers :)
we were BRAGGIN fo sho

So not only did they send me goodies....
BUT they are going to send these goodies to one of my readers too!!!!
WHAT!!!!























and all you have to do is this

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  25. I NEED to win this for my classroom!
    PS- we are making RACK ornaments to give to each class in our school, plus the support staff. I had these from Oriental traders, five strips of paper, attach the top and bottom of each strip to form the sphere. They took them home this weekend to design them. I picked up mini candy canes. So excited! thanks for the idea!!
