Valentine's mania and Oh, the Giveaways!

Wow!  Made it through a crazy but fun Valentine's Day with my 2nd graders!!!  We unexpectedly had my teaching assistant out {sick child - poor thing!!} and my parent volunteer wasn't able to come it {family commitment - don't we all understand!?!}, but we were rolling on through the day...
10 minutes before lunch, one of my students is called to the office for a sec, and comes back *beaming* holding a cookie cake.  She's so excited - apparently she's been planning this with dad as a surprise for the class!  Hard to be upset, except it *DID* break my stride for a while as I had to check ingredients {possible food allergies} and find a knife {um... note to self; keep a butter knife at school for this stuff!}, and keep my class calm-ish, since we are supposed to get a bit more done in our day...  All's well.  I located a knife and shared the cookie cake, popped on a video about the origins of Valentine's Day, and rolled with it.  Whew!!

Came home to find several giveaways from favorite bloggers, and had to share...  :)

2nd Grade Rocks is hosting her 200+ Follower Giveaway.  Enter before midnight on Friday to win $10 at TPT... Who wouldn't love this?

Farley from Oh Boy 4th Grade is hosting her Bang-N Giveaway.  The prize is a super-cool personalized stamp from  MyRubberStamp.etsy.com.
Whew!  Off to relax... or work on magic e word work games... whatevs.  Have a great rest of the week!

  1. That cookie cake sounds like something I could entirely eat up all by myself.
