Linking Up, Giving Away, & Scooting into Grammar

I went in to my classroom today to check things out and tackle a bit of the mess!  Well, first things first...let's just be honest...I had NO CLUE where to start!  Secondly, my floors still need a couple coats of wax so I can't set things up just yet.  So I went about the business of running my errands - Lowe's to get my teacher toolbox {yay! =)} and Wal-mart for groceries (yuck...).  Does anybody else hate grocery shopping as much as I do??  Then I went to my mom and dad's house to paint her new home office for her!  That should be a nice surprise when she gets home from her training this week!

Tomorrow we are off to buy some goodies for our classroom (if we can track down the principal for a p.o.)!  Another third grade teacher and I are going.  We still don't know who we'll be working with this year since one of us retired {we hated to see her go, but we're trying to come to terms =)}, but we'll have some goodies for whoever joins us!  Hopefully I can share what we find with you guys tomorrow or Friday!

Now, on to some blogging business!

Whooo Loves Fonts?

Michele from Run! Miss Nelson's Got The Camera is having a favorite font linky party!  Here are my favorite fonts (from Kevin & Amanda - find their button in my sidebar).  Jen from Hello Literacy has a lot of great fonts too!  I really like Hello Firstie, and she has some new fonts since I last looked!  Check them all out in her sidebar!

More ELA Scoot Games

Now...I need your help!  Again...I've finished up a few more parts of speech scoot games, and I need some proofreaders!  I have games covering pronouns, adjectives, and adverbs.  If you're willing to proofread a game, look over it carefully for any mistakes, and email me your thoughts, suggestions, and corrections that should be made, I'll give you the finished version for free!  I'll need you to please look over it tomorrow, and email me your thoughts by tomorrow night!  {These games will be part of a giveaway soon!  Keep an eye out for which blog you should be following if you aren't already!}

The first three people to comment and leave their email address will get one of my scoot games.  Remember to tell me which game you want to proofread.  I'll give away one of each!  

And go enter those giveaways!


  1. I'd love the Scoot adverbs

  2. You all were quick! The games you offered to proofread are on their way!


  3. I can help with the pronouns, if you still need someone.

    1. Thanks Suzy! The pronoun game is on its way!

  4. I despise the grocery store too. I will put it off as long as possible. Can't wait to see what you found on your shopping adventure and you are too sweet to paint a room for your mom. My, you had a busy day!!

  5. Thanks for linking up. I found some great new fonts. Love your choices.

  6. I would love any of them but my fav is the mega pack.

  7. Love the site..especially all the links! I do a weekly 10 finds roundup of products from TPT or blogs, so it's just another way to see all the great iems there. I am a new follower! Check out my pages if you'd like :)
