I fell off the face of the Earth!

So sorry guys, I have been overwhelmed and under-energized this month!  Does anyone else wish they could just shut their classroom door and not let anyone in or out?  If I could just teach, my kids might learn something!  So far this month we have had:  picture day, early release day, fall break, Red Ribbon Week, report cards, conferences, and special meetings.  My little darlings also gave me bronchitis during all of this.  Then, two weeks ago, my mother in law had a massive stroke, ended up moving in with us and having Hospice help with care, then Friday she was rushed to the hospital and has been there all weekend because they can't figure out why she continues to have strokes.  Hubby has been at the hospital all weekend and will be going out of town the middle of this week.  Needless to say...I am exhausted!  I am sorry this little blog has been neglected, but so have the rest of the parts of my life!

Oh my word!  I can't believe I forgot to share my good the middle of all of the drama last week, I got my first TPT check!  Thank you followers!!!!

I finally found some quiet time to work on a few writing centers.  Our school did not do so well on the writing portion of our state tests last year, so everyone is really pushing writing right now.  I have included vocabulary cards, writing paper, letter templates, how to templates, a word web, several lists, an abc order page, and one of my name it games.  Check them out and let me know what you think!
