Leap Day is tomorrow!!!

Better late than never lol.

I just posted my TPT mini-unit on Leap Day.
Here is a small look inside:




 My computer issues have made everything so slow...yikes. Hoping to buy something new soon.

Happy Sunday!

I saw this infographic on words people mix up and wanted to share. I am going to have my son read it and I think it would be great to show your students. I hope you had a radical weekend! Most of mine was spent Netflixing and we visited our new favorite ice cream shop Raspados Hawaii like twice. See the yummies I ate?

This huge one is called a Hawaiiana Pina. It is made with yummy pineapple, shaved ice, Chamoy sauce (like a sweet sauce), tamarind, chile powder and those bean looking things are gummy candies. The straw also had a fruit roll up type candy.



The second one was a Chamango. It is made of mango, sweetened condensed milk, shaved ice, Chamoy sauce, tamarind, chile powder and the candy straw. So dangerous that this place is down the street from me.
Raspados Hawaiian Shaved Ice - Warr Acres, OK, United States. Chamango


Now on to the infographic...

Fearless Monday

Today is Monday and I want you to start the day with a smile (even if its a fake smile). We will attack this Monday with a positive attitude. If you need an extra cup of coffee to make it so, no ones judging.

Check back with me at 10am when I am hauling my child to the pediatrician. The smile may be gone, my eye may be twitching, and I may or may not have something stronger than coffee!

I started thinking about some things we could do for St. Patricks Day this weekend and I wanted to share some of the cool things I found with you.
