Pencil Sharpener Love, a Giveaway and More!

Holey Cow!  Where did this weekend go?

I have been so busy, I have neglected my little piece of bloggy heaven, 
so I'll try my best to bring you up to speed.

First off, over the summer I had the opportunity to try out this fabulous pencil sharpener.
**SOLD OUT** Firehouse Red
I was truly in pencil sharpener heaven!
Pencils seem to be the bane of my teaching existence!
I absolutely HATE having kids sharpening pencils down to nubs 
and having pencil shavings littering my floor.  

I ♥ ♥ ♥ it!  
I loved it so much that I bought 8 of those bad boys for my classroom!
Now each table has their own sharpener.  Sharpened pencils abound and no more mess.
Head on over and get your very own (or 8!)  You will not be disappointed!

Giveaway time!

I have teamed up with Leah at Learning 4 Keeps to celebrate 100 followers for her blog.

Hop on over and check it out!

Anchor Charts and More

We have been doing a lot of reading and writing!  
Here are some of the anchor charts we have created in the last couple of weeks.  
I can't believe I waited so long to discover the awesomeness of anchor charts. 
 How did I ever teach without them?

Here are some pics of the kids coaching each other on their writing.
They did an awesome job of helping each other to revise and improve their writing.

I will leave you with my ADORABLE new mini me!
I won this from Nikki at Melonheadz Illustrating.
I just love it!

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I like your anchor chart about the 4 kinds of sentences. We are in the middle of doing that. I may throw that into my lesson tomorrow!

  2. Your holy cow illustration made me laugh out loud! Great anchor charts. We are doing naming and telling parts of sentences. Thinking I need to whip up some illustrations for a first grade anchow chart on that:)

  3. Your idea about putting pencil sharpener to each table will enhance the learning capability of the students because they will feel easy whenever they need to sharp their pencils because they do not need to go any where. best electric pencil sharpener reviews
