Winners, Birds and Freebies!

Here are the winners of the giveaway. I'll be emailing you this week to give you more info. Congratulations! (If you can't read the print, I'm sorry it's small. Winners are Mrs. Smyth, Amy, Jen R., Kelly B., and meadowt!)

Tomorrow we have PD and right now I have a toothache. I'm really hoping it goes away ASAP!!

If you are learning about birds like we are for the next 2 weeks, check out this bird unit from Jaime (What's the Buzz). It's just what you need to support a fun unit on birds!

And finally for a freebie! I gave my first graders DRA tests this week and will send home notes to let parents know their current level. Here is a copy of the notes I send home:

I hope you're having a wonderful week! I just love this weather and wish it would stay this way. I'm getting so excited for The Hunger Games this weekend...I really want to go at midnight, but I will probably wait, unless the hubster would actually go for it. :) Probably not!!!


  1. ooh - we don't use DRA, but that's a great idea for the tests that we DO do :)
    And YAY for the winning!! :)

  2. Hi! I just discovered your blog and I can't wait to check it out!

  3. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I am so excited I won! I love the DRA note to send with parents. I think as a parent, I would love being informed about how my child is doing-before report cards roll around!
