Summer Blog Hop






Hi everyone!  I'm super excited to be taking part in this summer blog hop.  It's my first one ever.  Thanks to Rachael Parlett from The Classroom Game Nook for starting this! 

I don't know about you but it has been a very long academic year.  I am looking forward to summer this year.  Here's a few things I'd love to share with you:

1)  I plan to create some resources for my classroom.  Last summer I began creating my own clip art.  Earlier this year, I invested in an iPad.  I have learned to create some fun images to add to my new product covers.  Here's one of my favourites:    



2) A huge patch in my garden awaits me.  Last year we had skunks living under our garden shed.  At one point, they were very comfortable coming out during the day.  We had to remove the shed because our problem became progressively worse.  My husband blamed it on my "welcome" sign on the garden gate!  Here are some of my favourite flowers in my garden:





3) I often have a short getaway.  I love NYC.  Although it won't be there this summer, I can't wait to visit again.  I may take a road trip instead.



4) I started taking Barre classes last summer and love them.  I would love to explore some other fitness classes too.  It's on my "to do" list.        



Here's my flash freebie located at my TpT store.  Just click on the image and it will take you there. Get it while you can.  It's only available until May 29th. 






Ends May 29th 

This is a fun way to end your school year.  Students can write some poems that include acrostic, diamante, haiku, cinquain or free verse.  Templates are included.  You can even end the year on a fun note with a poetry cafe.  PLUS One product from my store.  Your choice!!!







Off to the next blog.  Happy summer!
