Mia....., giveaways and misc!!

I have been MIA!! Now that school is finished for the summer I took a few days to relax and let me head unwind from the crazy year I have had. We are going camping this weekend and staying for a week! I am excited! We are lucky enough to have WIFI at the campground we are staying at!  I have been cleaning the house, catching up on laundry, getting my son ready for boy scout camp out this weekend at Sleeping Bear Dunes! And I have just been completely WIPED out!

We also had a our pool fixed this week. It needed some new plumbing to work better. Now it is just a disgusting shade of green that I can't get rid of. So we are off to the pool store to have the water tested and get some more chemicals. Hopefully that will fix it!

2. Clip-art! I have been purchasing a ton of clip-art lately so I can use it in the things I make here in my classroom and will be making for my TPT store. 

3. Photography- This has always been important to me but I FINALLY want to learn how to get out of my comfort zone (auto mode) and shoot in manual mode! 

4. Teacher Blogs!! I have been blog-stalking for a long time now and I finally jumped in with 2 feet and started my own!

Linky Parties!!!!

I am trying to catch up on the Linky Parties that I have missed so here it goes.....

I'm hooking up with Teachery Tidbits for her Favorite Font Linky Party!! I absolutely LOVE fonts! I have been collecting fonts for a long time. 

A Yummy Apology
ABC Alegria
ABC Bulletin
ABC Print
Annoying Kettle
House Sitter’s Club
Pea Celestial Creation
Pea SHally
These are just a few of my fav's! I have more at work that I don't have here at home.! I just sent a reminder to copy my whole fonts folder before school ends!. Since they will be re-imagining our computers over the summer so we all have Windows 7!


I'm linking up with Miss Nelson over at Run! Miss Nelson's got the camera for her You Tube Linky! I LOVE You Tube! My Co-worker and I use it quite a bit for math and reading songs!

Here are a few of my favorite videos!

Here are some for 5th grade on up. My son's teacher sent us the links for many of Mr. Parr's songs.
