linky party {and I'm it!}

I'd like to thank Jessica at The Polka Dotted Teacher and and Sandy from Soaring Through Second Grade for choosing to highlight my blog in their tag!  :)  {See my previous post where I tagged 10 others then go show both of these awesome ladies some love by following their blogs!}
{Jessica's questions}

What is your favorite children's book to share with your class?  I love them all!  But I do love seeing the looks on my students' faces when Junie B. makes a joke and they actually get it.

If you were not teaching, what career would you have instead?  personal stylist.  OR {even better} something famous enough to have my own personal stylist.  ;)

Besides blogging, what is your spare time hobby? after school "meetings" with my favorite teacher friend.  you know, at the porch of On The Border or something like that...

If you won the MegaMillions jackpot, what's the first thing you would do?  give 10% to my awesome church {Mosaic}.  then buy some louboutins...and maybe some outfits.

What do you eat for breakfast on school days?  we always keep hard-boiled eggs in the fridge so I just cut one up, throw it in a tortilla with a kraft single and some turkey and have a microwave wrap I can eat in the car on my drive!

Are you a dog or a cat person?  dog.  have you seen my precious huxtable?!  no choosing cats over him.

What is your biggest classroom pet peeve?  defiance.  as in, sitting down just because i said stand up.  ooooh that burns my britches.

If you taught one subject all day long what would you choose?  literacy!  Is that broad enough?!  ;)  I love reading a book about a topic, creating some type of organizer, writing about it and making a craft for display.  themes themes favorite days.

What made you decide to start blogging?  honestly, I stumbled upon them somehow and became a freaky hoarder that couldn't get enough of the freebies people were sharing.  {it was scary!!}  then I calmed myself down and thought, these are awesome, but I do awesome stuff all the time!  I wondered if anyone would be interested in my creations, started a blog and luckily you are!  {yay!}

What was the moment that made you laugh out loud in your classroom?  I had to bite my tongue and not laugh until later but one day a little girl in my class got picked up early.  She said she was going to the hospital to see her mom.  Surprised, I immediately said, "What happened?!  Is she ok?!"  Her response..."Oh yeah, she's fine.  She's just getting her boobies made big."  {bah ha ha!}

{Sandy's list of favorites}

color:  glitter.  ok, pink.

TV show: currently loving New Girl.  but I will always be The Cosby's Show's biggest fan.

sports team:  Michigan State Spartans.  {go green!}

ice cream:  Chubby Hubby by Ben & Jerry.  peanut butter.  pretzels.  fudge.  it's a good investment.

food: anything!  I'll eat anything covered in Buffalo Sauce and would eat pizza daily if it was healthier.

memory: has to be something with my family.  involving laughing.  and mostly likely a board game.

thing to do outside of school: relax in the sun, actually reading the magazines I subscribe to.

book: My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccoult.  Water for Elephants.  The Hunger Games.

beauty product: CoverGirl LashBlast mascara.

movie: Willy Wonka.  Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium.  In Her Shoes.

Don't forget to join in the Linky Party...share your classroom must-haves and get some new great ideas!  :)


  1. Hi Kristin! It is up to you if you want to give them away or charge them :) You can create projects to give away and sell, the only thing I don't allow is giving away/sharing my graphics with others. Hope this helps! Thanks for following my blog, I'm following you to :)

    1. Thanks Jaime. I'll probably do some of both then. But mostly I like to give my things's all about sharing and helping the kids! :) I'll be sure to give you credit and let you know the first time I "publish" one of your designs!!


Thanks for the comments! {like virtual hugs}
