BIG Giveaway Teaser & Open House...

Good evening everyone!  Today was parent teacher conference day and I am worn out!  Longggg day with parents and students, while also trying to prepare for my week with the kiddos! How is it that I can never catch up?! (Tell me I'm not alone?!) Two quick things to chat about before I retire to bed...

 1. Tomorrow, I will be having a BIG giveaway from! A FREE pair of Patagonia (YES...Patagonia!!!) shoes will be given to a very LUCKY winner! has pages of choices of Patagonia's - flats, sandals, boots, and more...if you're the lucky winner you may choose ANY pair on their site! $10 from every Patagonia purchase from  10/9-10/22 on will be donated to the Conservation Alliance. Stayed tuned as to how to "enter" my giveaway and learn more about how to help protect natural places for their habitat and recreational values through the Conservation Alliance! :)
{Hint: You will need to be a follower of mine to go ahead and follow me now! ;) AND it has a little something to do with someone from "The Bachelor"...yes, THE Bachelor...YES, I speak the truth.}

2. We had open house a few weeks ago and I just wanted to share a few photos!   Some day I will start blogging about my classroom adventures in real time...but I'm not that good yet. ;)

Parent Survey about his/her child.

I had each student's table spot decorated with his/her photo, science work, and a survey that parents were to complete.  Students "graded" the paper the next day to see how well their parents knew them! (Great idea borrowed from a co-worker!)
Hallway bulletin board- I created birds with a variety of scrap book paper and wrote student's names on the wings. I then hot glued clothes pins to the birds and then to the board. If I do say so myself...they are ADORABLE! I will try to get a closer picture of the birds next time! I plan on simply changing student work throughout the year- NOT re-doing the whole board...once the year starts that board is the least of my worries. ;)

Thanks for reading...come back tomorrow to see how to enter the FREE pair of shoes giveaway! Toodles.
