Pizzza, Donuts, & a Valentine's day freebie!

Hi, All!
Where have the last couple of weeks gone?
I can’t believe that January seems to be passing me by! Even though I can’t really tell yet, it just FEELS good to know that the days are getting a bit longer and that each day we are creeeeeeeping ever so slowly towards springtime. It’s out therefar awaybut getting closer.
It’s the little stuff.

I’m happy to report that I survived (haha) a bout with some strep-throat yuckiness a couple of weeks ago!  I HATE getting ready for a subespecially when I’m sick. My kiddos were good, thank goodness, and other than taking a couple of days to catch up when I returned, things are back to normal.

Our class celebrated a fun award- we were the winners of a holiday change drive & got our choice of a donut or pizza party.

Of course, we voted on it!

Donuts were the clear winners! 
What would your students or kids choose? I think that since they have pizza once a week at school, and at home, too, they chose the donut route. It was a perfect mid-week treat!  

I kind of forgot that I made this class Valentine's day book a couple of weeks ago. I found a couple of old class books and have been showing them to my students...they're so excited to make one of their own. 
I'm glad I did find it though, because it's perfect for today's FREEBIE FRIDAY event at Teaching Blog Addict.

I am in LOVE with the glittery backgrounds I found on Etsy! Check them out here!
They come in a rainbow of colors & I can't wait to make some more fun stuff with them!

I hope to catch up on some blog posts this long weekend- at least that's the plan!

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Cute book! I don't know what my class would choose! I think I'll go with your class and pick donuts because that is something we NEVER have!

    1. Thanks, Catherine! My kiddos are STILL talking about the donut party and have asked when we can have another. Of course, I gave them the donuts at 3:00 (we dismiss at 3:15) and sent them on their sugary way! :)

  3. Mine, without a doubt, would be pizza, lol. TY so much for the V-Day freebie!

  4. Alisha,
    My kids would have asked if they could have BOTH pizza and donuts! :) Thanks for the Valentine book freebie!
