Celebrate Summer Sale and a FREEBIE!

Thank you to everyone for your well wishes for my knee.  I had my follow up appointment today and unfortunately had to be referred to an orthopedic surgeon to see about surgery.  The good news is that if I do have to have surgery, it won't be until after my wedding.  That was my main concern!

Even though I have been trapped inside for the past few days, the weather has been gorgeous and it has been a huge stress relief to be done with report cards and out of school for the summer!  To celebrate, I am having a 20% off sale on everything at my TpT store!

Also, I am working on a Character Ed/Community Building Pack for the beginning of the year right now!  Here is a freebie "All About Me" activity to hand out at back to school/open house night or to use in a student of the week format.  There is a pre-k/kindergarten version for the students to draw pictures and a 1st-3rd grade as well as a teacher letter explaining the activity.   Look for the full pack at my TpT store by the end of the week.

The Good, The Bad, and The Froggy!?!

Well, I'll start with the bad news...
It's a beautiful weekend and I am stuck inside.  Why, you ask?  Being the major klutz that I am, I slipped on a puddle of water and fell by the kindergarten bathrooms at my school on Thursday and I dislocated my kneecap!  I had to go to the hospital by ambulance because it wouldn't pop back in like usual (this has happened to me before). How embarrasing!!!  Now my leg is in a giant brace and I will have to wait 5-7 days to see if I tore any ligaments.  It was a major bummer to me because I am supposed to be running a marathon next weekend that I have been training for since February.  So, I guess that dream will wait about a year!  But, I will still go to cheer on my sister and two other bridesmaids that are still able to race:)

The good news...
Friday was the last day of school, which meant only one day of hobbling around on crutches!  Hello, sweet summer!  Hopefully I will be able to venture outside and enjoy soon, whenever I can walk again:)

And the froggy news...:)
While I have been stuck in a recliner elevating and icing my knee that is the size of a melon, I have created a ribbit-licious Frog Themed Classroom Pack for all of you amphibian lovers out there!  The frog theme matches with our school mascot so I will be using this personally in my classroom next year.  This is the biggest unit for Teachers Pay Teachers that I've made so far so I hope you'll HOP over and check it out (hardy har har).  Click the pic collage to get to my store. It's $2.00 off for the rest of the weekend so hurry to go get it:)
