Apples of Fun! {Giveaway included}

Hello, there!  
I hope the new school year is going fantastic.
Trying to get back into the swing of things.
I fall off the dang thing every August.
One day, I may just be able to hold on like a pro.

I'm skippin' right over my room and back to school pictures.
They need some prep before I post.
I'll get there, one day.  I promise:)

Tonight, I want to bring you a little apple fun!
You can see what I did with apples last year
Last year I shared this last minute idea that was a hit!
Sadly, the link has been broken.

But the good news is that it is ready to go!
You can grab it here.
I hope it is not too late for some of you.
Since I am teaching the exact same story as
I was last year at this time in Journeys,
of course we are on nouns during apple time again!
Reading rotations are not going amazing yet in with my new class,
so I was in need of a pretty basic noun sort for this coming week.
We will also be getting ready to use my
"A Little Unit About Johnny Appleseed."

And of course, a little "Partyin' Apples" creativity!
{It's free!}
For more apple fun, head on over to Erica's post!
It is full of great resource!

Erica and I are joining up for a giveaway.
One lucky winner will when both products!
This is a QUICK giveaway!
It will end Monday evening.

Teacher Week: Who

Happy, Monday!
One day closer to Friday, my friends!
Today, I am linking up with Blog Hoppin' for Teacher Week.
A week full of fun!
Up first is the WHO.
Since my very last post was a link up to "Meet the Teacher,"
I'm going to keep this short and sweet with a few pictures!
You may see these faces on my blog, Facebook, and instagram!
They are beyond important to me.
I am leaving out some other very important people 
who are pretty anti-photos, like my parents!
And to be honest, if I made a slide for every 
family member I am close with, 
we would have about 50 slides!

Meet the Teacher {Linky}

My good friend Stephanie is hosting a little "Meet the Teacher" link party.
I decided to join in tonight so you can get to know me a tad bit more!

Just incase you are new to my blog,
 here is a little info on me before we get to the Q & A.
I will be starting my 7th year of teaching.  
I taught 3rd grade for my very first year & have been in 2nd since.
This year I am moving from the north side of my city to the south side.
Seriously:) Oh, and I live extremely north west.
I'm excited for my new adventure at a new school 
with a brand new team.
I am the middle child of 3 and am extremely close
 with both of my siblings, Ashley & Jordan.
We love to travel to tropical resorts & anywhere to cheer on the Huskers!
I know, bubbly....seriously?  I asked a few people that do not know of my blog and they both said it?! Which is a little funny, considering the main reason I  chose this blog name is because of my mom
 & another friend always explaining me as "bubbly!"
I started off going to college for graphic design.  A few classes in, I decided I didn't want to sit at a computer all day long.  
Ha!  Too bad I still do!
I wouldn't trade my teacher gig for the life of me!
I wouldn't want the power to "change" events, 
because the good & the bad helped create who I am.  
I would just like to be able to spend a little more time 
with people before they passed on.
My Grandpa ALWAYS said this towards waiting  to turn in busy traffic.
It has been my life quote most of my life.
Now it's your turn!  Click on the button below and go link up!

#Create2Educate #michaelsstore #sweepstakes

I've always been a "crafter."  
When I was just a 'lil girl with ribbons & curls,
 I use to drag items out of random drawers 
to create anything & everything.  
My "non crafty" mom didn't like this so much.
But she would add to my addictions by filling up my 
Santa & Easter Bunny gifts full of Crayola items.
{A handful of those gifts are used in my room today!}

So, many of you know I am changing schools this year.
I was beyond-thrilled-and-excited to be asked by Michaels to head to their store with a gift card to shop and create something for 
my brand-spanking-new-classroom.
Say, what?!  Of course I'll shop for free & then create!
My local Michaels store and I have a very loving relationship.
I'm there f.r.e.q.u.e.n.t.l.y.
I headed into to my local Michaels to get a 'lil inspiration.
It took all but 5 minutes for me to find this crate.
It screamed, "Take me!"
Project #1
I plan to keep this new book bin next to my teacher area for basals
 or in the classroom library full of books
based on the unit we are studying.
Project #2
Want to go shop for free at Michaels?
Go get crafty & enter their giveaway!
