What is Love & a Linky Party!

Happy Valentines Week!  How are you celebrating in your class?  Last year, we made this video.  I am planning to do another one this year.  Hearing 4th graders talk about love is pretty fun.  "Love is pizza."  You gotta love that.  Enjoy!  

I'm pretty excited to be linking up with Farley from Oh Boy, 4th Grade for my very first linky party.  I've been a fan of hers for a long time, even before I started blogging.  She is hilarious and has wonderful resources for teachers!  

Listening - I'm not completely watching the Grammys, but it's on in the background.  Not bad lesson-planning background noise.  I could listen to Kelly Clarkson sing "Natural Woman" on repeat forever.  And Mumford & Sons was awesome, too!

Loving - I've become a blogstalker.  After perusing many blogs today, can I just say that teachers rock?!  I already knew that, but as I read some of your blogs and see such good ideas, I am so thankful to be a part of a community that shares.  I am learning SO much!

Thinking - Being in NC, the snow we get is laughable, at best.  But I love snow so much!  So, I'm hoping for at least one more chance of snow this year!  But, nothing like Nemo.  That was just cray.  I hope everyone up north stayed warm this weekend.

Wanting - Asking for a laundry fairy to come fold and put away my laundry isn't too much to ask, is it?

Needing - I just want to sit around all day and make fonts, clip art, backgrounds, etc.  The only one I actually know how to do is fonts, but maybe soon I'll be able to play around more with graphics!

Pet Peeves - I. Need. Structure.  Especially at work.  I can relax like a champ on the weekends, but I really like to have clear structure & expectations at school.  


  1. What?! You already did a linky party? You are amazing!

    1. Come on can do one too:) hehe!

  2. First, your video is adorable. I love that idea!

    Also, I can completely relate to your wish for snow. I grew up in Michigan, but I live and teach in Atlanta now, and I really miss the surprise days off! I have little hope left for a snow day this year, but with the weather as crazy and sporadic as it has been, you can't ever rule it out.

    If you find a laundry fairy, please send her my way, too. I'm your newest follower, and I look forward to reading your future posts!

  4. I LOVE the name of your blog! I usually just have a small snack for lunch because I hate to eat in a rush!

    A laundry fairy would be great especially if she could do some mopping!

    I am happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit when you get the chance. :)
