I have reached over 60 followers! I thought it might be time for a giveaway! And since so many of us have a hard time turning off our "teacher" brains for the summer, I am giving away a gift certificate to Teachers Pay Teachers.

Who better to spend money on than all you wonderful and talented teachers who create and share with us!

Continue to read down the blog to enter my giveaway.

I have been busy already this summer - shopping, swimming, sleeping {all my fav. "s" words!!}

I have also been continuing my daily schedule as seen here. I try to keep up with my creative side {lol} by completing some of my favorite pinterest ideas. So far, this is what I have worked on:

What am I making? This...

I will be typing our third grade tier 3 vocabulary words for each story in our basil and add the words and rice to each bottle. This will become an activity that students can work on during the Daily 5.

Today each of my three children used their hand to create a monster. My daughter wanted a "rainbow" monster - how could I resist!! Once dry, I will add the finishing touches for a final product like this...

Finally, I completed this project yesterday...

This was so much fun and super easy! It was awesome watching the wax melt and ooze! All you need is a canvas board {mine is 9x12}, crayons, glue gun, and a hair dryer. Hot glue the crayons in the order of a rainbow {ROY G BIV} then use the hair dryer to melt. Place newspaper around the canvas to prevent splattering and dripping messes.
Easy Peasy!!

Now on to the GIVEAWAY! I will be using RaffleCopter. So go ahead enter..Good Luck!! And don't forget to pick up a copy of my "I Can Statements" in my TpT store!
