So a couple of my pet peeves are ignorance and excuses. I don't mean uneducated when I say ignorance, I mean plain ol' stupid! I really can't stand when grown adults are ignorant and hateful. For example not liking someone because of culture or the color of their skin. Just typing that sentence chaps my hide! How about excuses? Well, I hate when people including students have excuse after excuse. Anything from, "I abuse my child because I was abused" to "I didn't do my homework because it was my sister's birthday". Pulease!
Last Sunday I blogged about our new class pet named Hines.... Well, there has been a bit of a change. When I took my new hamster to class on Monday morning, my kids were absolutely ecstatic about the cute little ball of fur.
My little froggies loved everything about her except her name. "Hines? She doesn't even look like a Hines! She looks like a Lola", I heard. Guess what? I agree! She looks just like a Lola so Lola it is!!!!

Have you ever shopped at MPM school supplies? I received an email saying that "I can shop on their dime". They gave me a $25 credit to purchase whatever I wanted in exchange for a review of my experience. $25 for free to shop on school supplies......."no, thanks" said NO teacher ever. Of course I accepted! I assumed it would be like any other teacher online store but it I was wrong (in a good way).
I bought the two products pictured above, reading comprehension cubes to use during guided reading and teacher stamps to use for stamping. I am super thrilled with my goodies. The MPM School Supplies website was easy to navigate, the prices are wonderful, and the shipping was F.A.S.T.!!!!! I definitely recommend them and MPM School Supplies.com will be where I go first when shopping for my teacher/classroom resources.
