My Week AND Two Questions

Thursday, January 19, 2012
I always love Thursdays because that means Friday is super close. =) Yay weekend!

We have had a great week in my sweet little 3rd grade classroom for many reasons... 

1) My kids have had a great week. I am not sure what has happened to them but they have been working incredibly hard AND they have been quiet. We have a talking problem in my class and they have done a great job this week keeping the chatting to a minimum.

2) We got a NEW student. I love new faces. The kiddos were also extremely excited and did a great job making our new addition feel welcomed. My favorite was at the end of the new student's first day another child came up to me and informed me that they were now best friends. =)

3) We got a NEW pencil sharpener. We haven't had a decent working one since I took the job and I finally purchased a new one. It makes my life SO much easier. (It's the small things in life...hahah)

On another note, I have TWO questions for you! 

1) Do you guys post free documents with any type of clip art? Or do you only post stuff with the clip art you have purchased? For example, do you use the Word/Powerpoint clipart in your documents? I am super scared to post anything that is not all mine. I am new to this and don't want to get in trouble!

2) Where/How can I get a button for my blog. All of you have such CUTE ones & now I need one too. 

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday. Thanks for reading AND for (hopefully)
answering my questions. =)


  1. Sounds like you had a pretty good day!

    As far as the button, there is a code out there in internetland where you can attach a piece of clipart to it (like one on your blog) and it will show up. I will have to search for I will come back whenever I get it :)

  2. A good pencil sharpener does make all the difference! Love your cute blog design! I'm your newest follower!

  3. I use the Microsoft clipart on free items since I'm not using them to make money - as long as it's non-commercial use it's okay to use Microsoft clipart on things and share it on your blog :)
    I know there are some tutorials out there for making a blog button or you can buy one - my blog was designed by and she charges $10 for a blog button :)

  4. The pencil sharpener in our lounge makes me want to scream and cry every single day. I love new pencil sharpeners that work and actually sharpen pencils!!! My blog was done by Alicia at Dreamlike Magic. You can also type in "blog" in Etsy and get lots of great results and people who can do it for you...because I have no idea how! :) Have a great Friday!!!

  5. I can make you a blog button if you are interested. Let me know.
