Marshmallow Bites Freebie and Misc!

Many thanks for all of the kind words, and yes, you were correct, I am expecting baby #5! I am only partially outed at work, so you are even ahead of some of my coworkers! I did have to tell my cafeteria manager when she did a double take after seeing my tray today - before Christmas my lunch was usually a salad, bottle of water and maybe a few pieces of broccoli or carrots. Today I was starving so I got the sweet & sour chicken with brown rice, the macaroni and cheese and the pasta salad, along with cut up bell pepper strips and carrot sticks and a carton of milk. I didn't end up eating it all in our allotted 15 minutes, but I made a healthy dent in it lol! I have found that with this pregnancy I only get nauseous when my stomach is empty, so I am going to have to figure out some snack ideas that will be easy to eat and not too obvious so I can snack during the day without my poor kiddos feeling deprived!

Anyways, I promised I'd award some commenters with their choice of item from my store, so I picked 3 random winners and they are:

Thank you so much ladies! I will be contacting you shortly to see which goody you'd like!

We are on day 3 of inside recess. I think I can safely say that I am a wee bit cranky at this point and my students are a wee bit crazy. I am praying for snow or warmer weather. At this point I don't care which - this in-between stuff is killing me - either it has to be warm enough to go outside or too snowy to come to school! However, we did have a ton of fun during recess today:

 Puppet Center is always the first to fill up - love how these kiddos are using both sides of the stage to interact!

To entice a few kiddos to drawing center I got out the markers and the colored pencils - gasp!

 My block center kiddos made a helicopter pad - love how they put the helicopter on top of the H block!

The Marble Run is actually my very favorite - I could play with these things for hours and so can my students! They are getting to be good little architects!

I am sad to say that our copy machine is down due to lack of toner. Apparently we are shipping in replacement toner from Timbuktu and it won't be here until next week sometime. I was sincerely relieved that we had library and computers today, at least a little bit of time was eaten up that way! I am not sad that I don't have worksheets, as we don't usually use them much anyways, but I can't even send home a sight word list or print any recording sheets for units! Today during library time our librarian read Snowmen at Night and I can't even use the super cute Snowman at Night Craftivity/Writing activity I found that goes with it! 

Yep, the January blahs are in full force, I think it's time to cut this pity party short! In order to cheer myself up tonight I created a fun little graphing freebie that goes along with some cute marshmallows I found at the grocery store! They come in banana, strawberry, orange and raspberry shapes, and as soon as I saw them I knew they'd be a perfect Friday treat! Hopefully you can find them at a grocery store near you and use this freebie too!Just click the picute to download it in Google Docs!

Congratulations Jennifer! Boy oh boy are you going to have your hands full! (even more fuller than they are already!) I am sure you will have lots of support from your family. My anti nausea tip is to either eat crystallised ginger or have a small container of cereal in your desk.

Best wishes to you and your family

Congrats on your pregnancy! I envy you! I only have one and I'm not sure I could handle another! How do you do it all? :)

Congratulations!! I'm due any day, and the only solution I've ever had for nausea is eating constantly! Of course, with five you have way more experience than me...this is my third! Anyways, good luck, and have a great day!!

Ugh! Our January blahs are also in full force. It's freezing and we're all antsy! Thanks for the freebie- I needed it!

I'm sure you've already heard of Adventure to Fitness, but it's my savior on inside recess days. And thank goodness for tear art! We had three days of inside recess and I thought my head would explode! Thanks for the freebie!
