This is an AMAZING blog post..really! Okay, maybe I am just giving something away.

Thanks to D.J. Inkers for the fun fireworks clip!

So, I am totally at a loss of what to blog about today. 

I really wanted to do an AMAZING blog post to go with my giveaway, but alas... Is that bloggers block?  
I want to do a final "New Name, New Design"  giveaway and end my giveaway with a bang.  
Okay, so maybe just giving away $50 to Teachers Pay Teachers is enough.  I think it might be! Enter below (this is not a gift certificate to just my store.  If you win, you are not obligated to spend it on my store or any of my items.  It is for anything you would like to purchase on TpT!)  Good luck!

The Real Teachers of Blog County: Teachers Read (when they have some free time!) and the next giveaway!

Welcome to another installation of The Real Teachers of Blog County!
I don't know about you, but one thing that I love to do (when I have some free time, wink, wink)
is to sit down with a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) and read a good book!
I want to share some of my faves today!

1. Favorite Children's book:
I am a HUGE fan of the Harry Potter series.
Yes, I have read them all.  I have seen all the movies.  I have been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, and I have a Harry Potter tattoo.  Fangirl much?

2. Favorite "Grown Up" book:
I love John Irving.  My favorite grown up book is A Prayer for Owen Meany.
I still haven't found a book I love as much as this one.
My youngest son is even named after this book!

3. Favorite "Teacher" book:
I use the strategies that are described in Debbie Miller's book everyday during my reading instruction in my classroom!  I am also lucky enough to have met Debbie Miller and I have a signed copy of the first edition of this book.  The one pictured is the second edition and it is even better than the first!  I couldn't live without this one!

4. Favorite "Guilty Pleasure" book:
Yup, read them all.  Didn't like the first movie (not a fan of the actors that they chose to play the parts of Bella and Edward) so I didn't see the others.  Yes, I have a preference:  Team Edward all the way!

I would love to read about the books that you love!  I am working on making my summer reading list and am always looking for suggestions!

New name giveaways!

I am sooooooooo excited about my new blog design, new name (I am LOVING Primary Planet!), and new domain name :!  Hurrah!  All this week I will be hosting giveaways to celebrate!  The first one is for something that you can use in your classroom on Monday!  These are perfect for the end of the school year as most of us aren't starting any new writing units but we still want our kiddos writing!

Oooooooo! Primary Planet!

Oooooo!  Isn't it neat?  Stayed tuned as my new blog is updated!  I also changed my name!  Welcome to Primary Planet!

A funny and a thank you!

Tee- Hee!
So, we were working on writing the other day and we are in one of those: most of my kiddos are done with their animal research report, but a few aren't so I don't want to move on to anything new.
So, what to do?  Writing Prompts!
My kiddos really love these, but today one of my little girls was affected by the lack of female characters.  

I think that she did an excellent job recreating these characters to better fit her style!  You can hardly tell where she drew on top of the clipart!

Plus a Thank You!  Teachers Rock!  That's all!  :)

Stay tuned! Big changes and big giveaway coming soon...

I am so excited! My blog is getting a makeover and I am changing my name!  Stay tuned!
I am planning a fun giveaway as soon as all of the changes are in place!  I promise, it will be a good one!
