Cyber Monday (& Tuesday)!

Life has been INSANE...
too insane to update my blog. =(
I keep thinking things will slow down
but I've finally came to the conclusion it's just not going to!

I made the time to stop by quickly tonight to make a quick post about the MASSIVE Teachers Pay Teachers sale that starts at midnight! I decided to join in on the fun and everything in my shop is 10% off. Use the code CMT12 at checkout to get an additional 10% off. Wow!

I can't wait to stock up on some goodies myself!
Good luck to everyone selling... fingers crossed for lots of sales! =)
Have a happy Monday!

All About Landforms! (& Fabulous Mail!)

One thing I love about social studies and science is that my school doesn't have a strict textbook I have to follow (like we do for reading and math). This allows me to really use my own ideas and resources while following along with our state standards. I love teaching both Science and Social Studies so I really enjoy making my own resources for those subjects. So far this year my class has covered matter, and I created my own matter unit which is now available on TPT. It sells very frequently, so I am excited to see that other teachers are able to use my resources as well.

Currently in my classroom we are talking about Landforms. Landforms are a fun topic to talk about because students can relate to each landform and many students have seen or experienced the landforms we talk about. We started our unit by filling out a Landform mini-book and continued with several other activities. We will finish our unit with a short matching quiz and by decorating cookies with different colored icing representing the landforms we learned about. I uploaded my Landform Mini-Unit onto TPT this morning, so if you teach Landforms, check it out!

Landforms Included:
Mountain, Canyon, Desert, Volcano, Valley, River, Hill, Ocean, Lake, and Plain

Items/Activities Included:
-Landforms Posters
-Landforms Mini-book
-Landforms Cut and Paste
-Compare Landforms (Venn Diagram)
-Landforms Drawing Activity
-Landforms Matching Quiz
You will find more details about this product on TPT.

Last but not least, I got a fabulous surprise in the mail on Friday! 
Check out the super cute sign I received from Tammy at Forever in First.
I can't wait to put it up in my classroom when I return to school tomorrow!

Hooray for our FIRST day off all year! 
I am currently still in my PJs and watching the Today show. =)
Thanks to all our Veterans who have served and protected our country!
