Freebie Fridays




Welcome to 2nd Grade Pad


Stranded!


Oh no! I was visiting my boyfriend and trying to get back to New England. I made my flight to Cleveland but before I even got off my plane it was cancelled. I considered driving back to his place (6+ hours) or driving home (14+ hours probably) but the big storm made me too nervous to drive. So here I am at a hotel. Couldn't get a flight until tomorrow evening! Ack. Could not get a flight back to ny boyfriend and could not get a flight to Boston or NH with United or US Air before then. :( It is better to be safe here but I want to get stuff done at home. Are any of you stuck trying to get home from holiday travels?



If you're looking for any post-holiday teacher shopping, I am having a sale at my teachers pay teachers store and my teacher's notebook store, too. Plus, lots of free stuff!

I don't have my netbook, but I can catch up on my teacher blogs on my phone or ipad and come here to the business center too. Good times ! Hope you all had a happy Christmas!

Freebie Fridays




Impressive Vocabulary

We were working on character traits yesterday and brainstormed a list of character traits to describe people. I could NOT believe some of these AMAZING words my second graders came up with. "Squirrely"? "Progressive"?! "Submissive". WOW.I have never heard these words from any 7 or 8 year olds (and they came from different students too. This is why I LOVE my job. Kids amaze me every day! (don't mind my printing, I was really tired, plus I feel so messy compared to the super neat handwriting I see from all of you!)






All I Want for Christmas Linky Party




Over at Learning with mrs. Leedy I found a fun Linky Party - All I want for Christmas. To join up or see what everyone else posted, head to her blog here. So fun!


Here's what I think

would be the perfect gift from. . .
1. Students
2. Kiddies
3. Husband/boyfriend
4. Parents/Family
5. BFF
6. Santa

From my students, I actually don't want any gifts. I talked to them and e-mailed the parents instead with an idea to donate to First Book, whose goal is to get books to the teachers affected by Hurricane Sandy so they can start to build back up a classroom library. They lost so much and only $2.50 will get a book to a classroom. The link for First Book is here.




I don't have any kids of my own, but in the context of yesterday's tragic events I would like peace for them.


From my wonderful boyfriend who I miss so much, I want to be able to see him in person, and let's not beat around the bush:




From my parent and family?

I love a whole bunch of tv shows, in particular HBO, and I love rewatching them and especially the commentaries, so the upcoming DVD season 4 release of this would rock:


My best friend who lives too far away now? I'd love just to be able to have a coffee with her.



Santa please either bring me some new kitchen countertop and maybe cabinet or perhaps you can pay off my credit card? :)





Happy holidays, everyone!






Freebie Friday: Winter Frames and Arrows

Well , it is Friday night. What a long week especially with 13 conferences, and not home until 9pm last night. And what horrible news today. My heart goes out to everyone involved. We could use something cheery so here is my contribution to Friday Freebies. There are lots of holiday/winter themed freebies so check the other ones out.

It's Winter themed Frames and Arrows which goes great with second grade Everyday Math but could also work for first grade or third graders who need review. There are 2 pages of practice. Click here to get it !
