I am thrilled to team up with some great teachers to bring you this BIG giveaway today. You can enter to win a FREE pair of Tieks! (A $200 gift card that will get you a pair) This event runs through February 16th.
I just ordered my first pair of Tieks. My mom gave them to me for Christmas and I am so happy to finally have a pair. I have really tried to change my buying habits lately. Less is more. You get what you pay for. I would rather have fewer choices in my closet so that everything can be high quality classics that I wear for years. Tieks are definitely quality.
Ok, so here is the boring part. I got black ones. I know... so incredibly boring and predictable. True. But I actually DID NOT have a pair of black flats in my current wardrobe. Plus, I figure black ones will be easy to polish and keep looking nice for years to come.
So, here is your chance to try a pair for yourself. Which color will you choose?

I am so happy to be blogging with my #kinderfriends this week. We are sharing the love by donating 10% of our TpT sales from February 10-14th to a favorite charity. Yay! Our world NEEDS more love and kindness right now. So, this makes my heart very happy. Some of us are giving you a FREEBIE too! Keep reading so you can grab one from me.
This is a fun idea for your classroom that can also help spread the LOVE. I did this a few years ago with a class that really needed some support to be kind and helpful with each other. It is an acts of kindness project that I connected with our 100th day of school. The challenge was for kids in the class to do 100 acts of kindness before we reached the 100th day of school. We punched out 100 heart die cuts on our Ellison machine at school. Then we wrote down the name of each child and the kind act as they reported to us. You can also have the kids do the writing, especially for firsties. They were so proud of these accomplishments through the process of filling the board.
Water.org is the charity to which I will donate for this event. You can make a donation yourself by clicking on the link above or you can buy something from my TpT store and I will donate 10% of the sale price. This event lasts from Feb. 10th -14th 2017. I first heard about this charity about five years ago when I saw a bit on TV about it. Matt Damon was lending his celebrity to shed light on this important issue. I was shocked to hear the stories about how many people do not have running water and the impact it has in daily life. I honestly feel that running water and sanitation should be rights of all people. I also know how much this impacts public health for communities. One thing I really love about Water.org is that they work with folks in each community to find unique and sustainable solutions that help them solve the water problems they face. I will donate to this charity annually until this problem no longer exists.
Are you doing your measurement unit right now? I want to share the love by showing you something I made for MY classroom. I think it will be very helpful now and for the rest of your school year. I made this pack of common core aligned measurement activities to help our little students with this important topic. My kids are loving measurement! And I am am loving that I have this EASY PREP pack to pull from anytime we need a little hands-on review. I have a bag of classroom objects for measurement in my cupboard ready to go anytime we need them. Then I just print and go for measurement math fun. Here is a little peek:
OK, lets get back to love and kindness and you can grab that FREEBIE!
This is a chart I made with my class earlier this year. We were learning about friendship and being kind in the classroom at the beginning of the year. After we did this, the kids got to draw a picture with their own idea of how to be a good friend. This was early in the year, so I took dictations for students. Here are a couple of adorable examples:
I just LOVE the drawings on both of these pages. I love these sweet little students too. This is a good time of year to review these norms with our kiddos. You can grab this FREEBIE in my TpT store right here: Friendship Writing prompt paper.
Keep hopping along for more LOVE from the #kinderfriends
