Saturday Snapshots

Woke up this morning to a drizzle... not even the dogs wanted to get out of bed! Here is a picture of my fur-baby Iggy sleeping the morning away! I think he eventually woke up around noon...

Then while the house was still quiet, I decided to start working on my Read Box that I saw on Pinterest. This morning I made the QR codes for all the books I wanted to feature first and then found the cutest labels from Miss Math Dork's TPT store! They have a math background but when I printed them out it wasn't noticeable at all! The finished labels looked something like this...

You can get your free labels from Miss Math Dork's Store here. Aren't they adorable? I was going to try and cover my presentation board with red paper but then I saw that Office Depot & Staples both sell red boards. So that's where I'm going tomorrow! So it's not quite finished yet... check back on Monday ;) It'll be perfect for my Monday Made It installment!

While I was working though, I did find this amazing video of how to make an emergency Origami Yoda by the author of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. My fifth graders will love this video!

Then, I decided to tackle one more project. Since my erasers arrived from Quill on Friday, I've been waiting to set up my gumball eraser machine! With a little help from the boyfriend the erasers went from this....

To this....Tah-dah! 

The rest of my Saturday was spent lazily around the house. School is approaching fast and I wanted to spend my rainy day wisely knowing that soon there will be papers to grade and things to do around the classroom. It finally stopped raining long enough for me to check out my garden and I discovered two ripe heirloom tomatoes! The first "biggins" of the season!

Hope everyone had a great Saturday! Don't forget to link up to Run! Mrs. Nelson's Got the Camera to share your Saturday Snapshots! Don't forget to follow me on instagram! I'm finally on board!


  1. What fun pictures Thanks for linking up. I'm impressed with your garden.

  2. I should link up with this linky! I did not even know about it! I will have to do it!

    I love your gumball machine. You should use pennies in your classroom as rewards, then they can cash them in for what ever amount the machine takes! You would really only need a roll of pennies and a roll of nickels as you could re-use them!

    Good Stuff Here!

  3. I love the gumball machine...I was super-stoked to get my hands on one this year, too! Can't wait for the kiddos to see it. My erasers are not as cool as yours though, LOL.

    Love your blog!
