Monday Made It and a Blog Award

I started a blog because I wanted to get in on the blog giveaways that I was seeing. Call it beginners luck, because I won the first that I entered! This tells about it. Jill from Marvelous Multiagers! sent me The Teacher Tipsters' The Musical Morning Routine DVD. I have watched it several times, taken notes, and decided that I needed to make some "Brain Chains."

So excited to make 4 of my own (with stray shoelaces). The round laces worked best. Those will be the kind I try to find at Goodwill.

I also created some more sun canvases (idea from Farley).

Joy is for my mom, play is for my BFF, and peace is for my sister. I definitely need to get more canvases to paint more before my summer vacation is over.

I am linking up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics to show what I've made.


A while ago I received a Blog award from Sarah at 

and now Patti at On the Road to Success has given me the same award. I am finally going to accept it.

There are some rules:

Once you receive the award, you have to pass it on to others! Here are the 3 rules to follow:
1. Follow the person who gave you the award.
2. Link back to the person who gave you the award.
3. Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.

Now it is my turn to pass on this recognition. Don't forgot to visit these blogs and explore their posts!

I will have to do some looking around to find 2 more blogs to nominate. 

And I have 3 chapters to read (one each in Daily Five, Guided Math, and Conscious Discipline) and write about.

And both boys are home.

And it's going to be hot again this week. What that means for me is I will have loads of time and opportunities to practice CD. Wish me well.
Pin It!
