March 2013 SLP Link Up!

Thursday, March 21, 2013

I decided to participate in my first SLP link up ever. Would you like to participate? All the instructions can be found here: Oh, How Pintearesting!

  
State of Mind: 
  • Currently is hopeful! I have been so busy the last few months! Crazy busy at work, planning a wedding and started my Teachers pay Teachers Store! I am hopeful that with 2 weeks off for spring break and a less busy work life will help me relax a bit. 

Loving:  
  • All the support and love from the Teachers Pay Teachers world! I have already met some great people, networking, supporting and sharing. Seriously, it has re inspired me and keep creating because it is what I love to do!

Prepping: 
  • If you haven't yet enter our SLP Blog Hop (running through March 23). You will have a chance to win 12 awesome activities. One of which is from Word to the Wise Don't Let Grammar Bug You: Plurals, Past Tense Verbs and Conjunctions. Available for $5.00 and I am telling you it is worth every penny! I laminated it and I am currently cutting out all the adorable little cards and there are TONS of them! The content and graphics really couldn't be any better. Excited to begin using this when I get back after spring break.
  • Also prepping my WH Whale Questions 144 cards, Whale Die, worksheet, open ended game board, 6 posters and more! I love these whale graphics and they inspired me to make this project! I finally got around to printing it, and it's going to be a great extra support for working on WH questions.

PS I did my first guest post ever today over on The Dabbling Speechie! Thank you again for letting me post! I feel like it is such an honor to  do something like that from a more established blogger (especially one who was featured in TpT's newsletter this week! Congrats!) You can find my guest post here: Beanbag Brigade

  1. Rachel, thanks for participating! You are brave to take on a wedding and TpT. You must be super organized or never sleep.

    I'm jealous of your 2 weeks off. I'm at the end of my one-week Spring Break.

    The Whale Questions look adorable, and I have entered the Blog Hop! Crossing my fingers!

  2. Two weeks off? I guess I can't complain, since I have a week and a half off, since I am part time at the moment. You are right, great minds! I laughed when I saw you post right after me! Love your blog and your creativity. Happy that we had a chance to connect and get to know each other. And thanks for participating in the blog hop! I think we all learned a lot, and had fun! Congrats on your guest post! I have one coming up next week!

  3. Two weeks off-that is fantastic! Although with wedding planning it may not seem like as much of a vacation I guess. The Whale question activity looks so great! I LOVE the bunny and carrot bean bags! I may have to get to the craft store today (again...)

  4. I read your guest post on the Dabbling Speechie- ohhh I fell in love with your cute little beanbags- you definitely inspired me to try to make some!! Then as I'm reading... WHAT!? you mention my little bee game!! The thought of you and your kids using it and tossing beanbags and having so much fun and learning all the way across the country really made my day. That's the coolest thing about sharing products! I hope you have a great break!! TWO WEEKS ! WHoa that's awesome!

  10. I'm quite enjoying participating in this link up and reading what everyone else has going on! First off, 2 weeks off...AWESOME! Planning a wedding...I was crazy enough to do that too while working full time my first year in the schools and really it was so much fun! If I wasn't an SLP I think I would have been a wedding planner. Anyway, I hope your 2 weeks are very productive and you get to spend time planning tons of wedding fun!!!! I also hope your wedding goes off without a hitch! August if quickly approaching but you'll get it all done I'm sure! Good luck and congratulations!!! Oh...also I enjoyed your guest blog very much as well!!! I'm terrible at sewing but I need to work on it so I can be as creative as you :)

  11. I love your WH Whale Questions too and have added them to my cart so I remember to grab them next time I make a purchase. Love meeting other bloggers through this link-up party. Best wishes with your wedding planning! It is so much fun, but a lot of work. I got married in 2011 and moved across the country and started a new job 3 weeks before the wedding - it was a stressful time. I'm sure your day will be beautiful!
