Common O'Core and a Review

Hey yall! Happy hump day!
Today was actually our first day back and it was HECTIC!
I'm sure it had NOTHING to do with the 2 club periods that was just added to our schedule and started today with about ohhh....a week of planning? It was chaotic, I tell ya.
Over the long weekend, I was super productive. I finished up a huge paper for my thesis class, cleaned the house top to bottom, and completed my newest pack!

I am loving this bright packet! Our school has really locked down our copies lately, so I'm trying to run the least amount of copies possible. Enter...pocket chart centers!
This 63 page packet is full of fun math centers that can all be completed using a pocket chart (or just any surface really!). I have not included recording sheets; however, if there is a huge demand for them, I will go back and add them. This packet includes:

I have also included every center in black & white for those of you that are trying to save on ink as well :)
*The first 2 to comment will get a free copy!*
Now, on to my review....
A few months ago, I was asked review to some products for Gojo. I'm always down for free stuff, so I quickly agreed. After a few weeks of waiting, I finally got the products....hand sanitizer! An essential in every classroom, yes?
The first thing I opened was this little guy...
So fun, right?? Oh my, do my littles love this little guy! He sits right next to our tissues as a reminder :)
He gets a ton of use, especially before lunch time! One of our classroom jobs is to give everyone hand sanitizer before lunch, and it is now a coveted job because of this guy!
The nice thing about him is that you can change the bottles out really easily. We have already gone through the first bottle, so now I've got to stock up! Notice how he is currently empty???
 I {heart} this little guy!
The next thing that came was this dispenser.
I was pretty excited, because I knew right where I was going to put it. We share a bathroom with the class next door, so I hung this right inside our little bathroom hall. I was excited because I knew we would get a lot of use out of it and that the foam would go a long way.
But.....that's not quite how it worked out. First, the dispenser gave out way too much sanitizer and it wasn't foam like I thought it was. Instead, it was just a liquid. The kiddos kept thinking it was soap, because they had to rub...and rub...and get it all soaked in.
And then they busted it... :(
I mean, its still in one piece in all, but the nozzle is kapoot. Hmmm...poor thing succumbed to 37 little first graders, I guess.
Overall, I'm super happy with our little Purell guy, but not so crazy for the dispenser.
Alright yall, time to catch up on some Dance Moms!
