Valentine freebie AND an award! =)

Monday, January 30, 2012
I haven't blogged in a while, but I was SO excited to check my email last week to see that I received the "Favorite Follower Award" from Sandy over at:

Being a new blogger I did not think I would be receiving this award, so when Sandy handed this to me I was completely shocked and excited. I know it's probably not allowed, but if I could I would give this award back to Sandy because she is one of my favorite followers. She always leaves me sweet comments even though my posts barely ever say anything important. =) 

I want to give this award to one of my favorite 3rd grade blogging friends:

Amber has left me several sweet comments and I love that she is a third grade teacher. 
I am constantly stalking her blog for new ideas in my classroom.
If you haven't checked out her blog, you should! =)

Finally, since it is ALMOST February, I wanted to share one of the activities I have created for Valentine's Day. We don't have enough time to spend the whole day doing Valentine activities, so I try to incorporate things that the kids need to work on into Valentine centers, etc. My kids are still having trouble with ABC order, so I made a Valentine's Day ABC order worksheet. If you can use it, feel free to download it. If you download it, I would love if you would comment AND follow me on TPT. =)

Hope you all had a WONDERFUL Monday and check back later
this week for details on the rock unit we are finishing up! 
& As always, I would love it if you would leave some love! =) 

Oh, and I am LOVING this "tagging" game. I have been tagged three times! 
Whew. I will try to do that post later this week!
