In other news, during my daily blog stalking this morning, I stumbled upon this AMAZING GIVEAWAY from Lisa over at Growing Firsties!!!
I don't know about you, but my kiddos cannot get enough of Pete the Cat. They love Pete the Cat so much, they took it upon themselves to make a list of who gets to borrow the book from the classroom library each week. I know this because I had to consult the list to borrow the book from a student to teach a lesson on verbs, and I thought she was going to cry when I asked for it. "But Miss Watters, I'm still reading it," she said, lip quivering and all! Then she kept glancing at it while she was working, like someone might run up and take it from table. I have never seen a child as relieved as she was when I gave it back!
But, as fantastic as Pete the Cat is, that is not the best part of this giveaway! Lisa is going to donate money for Hurricane Sandy Relief! As a New Jersey native, I am so thankful for Lisa and everyone else out there donating their hard earned money to support such a worthy cause. I live almost 1000 miles away from my home state now, but the pictures of the devastation are unbelievable. So many people in the northeast were affected by the storm, and every little bit helps! Be sure to visit Lisa's blog and enter for your chance to win - and thank her for her help!
Happy Teaching! J Lindsay
