It has been a long week! I can't believe that Easter was just.last.weekend. As in five days ago! CRAZY!
I'm linking up with Teaching Maddeness and Doodle Bugs Teachings for a look back at my week.
This is my happy place. I decided to spend some time with Annie (my sewing machine). I had to take a trip to the fabric store before I started. I like to think of it like I was buying a new dress for a date....it's not like I don't have fabric I could use at home, but I really want to impress my date :)
Shhhh....don't tell my friend, but I made this for her birthday that is tomorrow! She is turning 21 (*WHAT!*). It's a cute little travel/make-up bag.
Yes, it has a zipper, which makes me a pretty legit seamstress.
I made my first quilt on Saturday!
It was way easier than I thought
probably because I cheated and bought the precut fabric.
I have BIG plans this summer to make a quilt for our QUEEN size bed. BIG PLANS I tell you.....
I had a training on Thursday over how to engage students in Science.
I learned how to make this pocket in a journal....
and. that's. it.
That's all I learned after five hours of training.
But it was all good (as Pete the Cat would say) because I got to spend the day with my team teacher from my old school!
This week we have been learning about the Maya, Aztecs, and Incas in Social Studies. For art, we made an Aztec Sculpture out of play dough I was SO impressed with the creativity my students had when creating their sculpture!
When I whipped out the play dough, I heard so many gasps! Sometimes I forget that my students are still little kids :)
I am putting the finishing touches onto my 100+ follower giveaway!
Expect it shortly!
So far, I have 12 fabulous bloggers who have offered some pretty amazing TPT products! I've had so much fun learning the ins and outs of a giveaway.
