SLANT Box and Miscellaneous Stuff :)

It has been a very busy couple of days but I have checked some things off of my To Do List!  Yay!!

1. I am happy to say that my SLANT Box has been sent - off to Winnipeg, Manitoba!  (Click here to learn more about the SLANT Box from Jameson at Lessons with Coffee.)

2. I am halfway through "The Book Whisperer" by Donalyn Miller.  If you haven't read this already, it is a great read!  We Read, We Blog, We Teach led a book study on it.  You can find links to lots of helpful information on each chapter here.
3. I went to Staples Teacher Appreciation Week(s), got 40 of the ten cent duo tangs plus some really fun looking glass writers - Expo Neon Window Markers!  Guess who I ran into at Staples?  Erin at

Mrs. Beattie's Classroom
We had a lovely little visit!

4. Finally, I have sorted all of my school files on my computer.  Here's a picture...  Do you notice a pattern?  A bit crazy?

Have a great day!


  1. How in the world did you add color to your computer files? That is the neatest thing I've seen all day!
