Love, Love, Love

Hey yall! Thursdays are one of my favorite days of the weeks. Partly because it's so close to Friday, and partly because I don't have carpool duty. But the main reason I love Thursdays is our Thursday night TV line up. NBC anyone? 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Up All Night? It's like DVR heaven!!! Not to mention that we get to catch up on our Wednesday night shows, like Whitney and Are You There, Chelsea?

Okay, so I am finally finished printing/cutting/laminating our Valentine's Day center activities. Whew...that was a chore. Here they are in all their glory (well, except for the black & white recording sheets) for your viewing pleasure. If you purchase my Lots of Love unit, all the recording sheets are in color :)

These are NOT in my Lots of Love unit.
We are also during the Even and Odd Love center from Anna over at Crazy for First Grade, but I haven't printed those out yet...darn, thought I was done.

I got my gifts all ready to go for my littles, too!

This is all over pinterest, but it came from Lindsey at the teacher wife. It says "You make my heart GLOW!"
We are going to have a busy day on Tuesday! In the midst of all the fun math centers, we also have a writing craftivity and our card exchange.

Check out my cute door for February.

Isn't it adorable? My February room mom did awesome! And yes, I have a different room mom for each month. More on that later...

Let me leave you with a quick little rant. I had one of my parent volunteers cut out a few of my center cards. Some of them are okay, but some of them look like this.

I mean, really??? Notice the cut across the top. This absolutely almost elicited tears on my part. Is that ridiculous? Would this have bothered any of yall?


  1. I love the "you make my heart glow" idea!


  2. I just found your blog. I'm your newest follower! Last year I would have probably re-printed that place value card and cut it out again. However, after printing, cutting, laminating more reading and math games that I can begin to count, I have to say that now I wouldn't even worry about it. The kids don't seem to care (or notice) when the cards aren't cut out perfectly, and within a week or so you'll have new center actitivies and that one won't make it's appearence until next February. I'm *slowly* learning to let *some* things go :)


I LOVE reading your comments!!!
