This year I participated in the Holly Bloggy Christmas gift exchange. I had so much fun creating and shopping for a gift for my partner. I want to thank Caitlin from Ms. Preppy and Sarah from Kindergarten Korner for putting this all together.
My partner was Randee from How About Them Apples? and I had so much fun creating her gift. I made her a personalize picture frame, ornament and journal. I hope she liked them.
I was so excited when my gift arrived. I will admit that it was very hard to resist opening it as soon as I got it. However, I did leave it under my tree . . . . until Christmas Eve and then I had to take a peek. I don't think I could wait any longer. My partner was Alicia from Keeping It True in K-1-2. She gave me a fantastic gift. I got scrapbook paper, stickers and glue dots. I love to scrapbook!! I also got a bag of Hershey's chocolate kisses. I love chocolate, too!! Thanks Alicia, I loved my gift!!
Thanks again Caitlin and Sarah for putting all this together!! I had so much fun!

Welcome to my blog!! I am a first grade teacher and this is my third year teaching. I have been checking out teacher blogs since this past summer. I found lots of wonderful ideas that I bookmarked and knew I had to try in my classroom. This fall, I decided to finally make it offical and start following. What took me so long? Well . . . . I hate to admit it, but it took me a while to finally figure out how to follow. However, I didn't know at the time that it would become so addicting. I also never thought that I would be starting my own blog. As I begin this new adventure of blogging, I am somewhat nervous and excited. I hope to be able to share what I am doing in my classroom with the fantastic teachers in the blogging community.
