End of the Year Awards (Button Style).

Happy Sunday friends! I hope you are taking some time to relax today.
Lesson planning is the last thing on my to do list this Sunday. The weather is beautiful around here, and I am planning to enjoy it after I press publish.

Who is ready for the end of the school year?

I am so not raising my hand on this one. But I am certainly thinking about my end of the year gift, party, and the rest of the holidays I have with my sweet bunch.
Please do know that I have at least two that keep me on my toes. All of us need at least one (if not two), right?

Well. I finished them. And I am in love...again :)  Find then HERE.
40 Buttons, Planning Sheet and... they are editable. 
So if you are as Type A picky as I am, you may appreciate the fact that you can type the kids' names. 

We have decided to go out for Mexican tonight because hubby wants one of these. 
       I will probably share one with him...extra salt, please :)

I'd love to send two of you my latest product. All you have to do is guess what I will be eating for dinner (remember, Mexican). Include one dinner item and one dessert item. 
I am hungry now!

Earth Day Freebie Alert! - with a bribe

I made some bookmarks for you and I am also sharing the Earth Day Button found in my latest product.

Find them all HERE.

You can find the original post HERE to get more details.

To get your freebie, all you have to do is pin my Year Long Celebration Buttons, and send me your link when you email me:

Who knew I would bribe my teacher bloggers? :)  I feel a little bit of guilt.

Year Long Celebration Buttons!

I am still celebrating being tracked out :) Cleaning, organizing, creating and cleaning some more.

Celebrating holidays and special occasions in the classroom, comes in different forms. Sometimes, you may celebrate doing a craft, read a book about a particular topic, invite mystery readers, eat some yummy cupcakes, or have your traditional 'festival' or small party.

I enjoy making something for any occasional. I do. I make the kids work hard, but they know a holiday means, we will do something to celebrate. I think it is important to have fun things going on, that break the routine a bit :)

I've had some time to think of something new I'd like to try. It involves buttons, clear buttons, that is.
I went to Michael's and purchased two entire rows of  these buttons. Don't forget to get your teacher discount when you are there...sometimes I do :(

Clear 3" craft buttons. Three for $1.99 minus my teacher discount. Not bad!

I then created 45 different buttons including major holidays and school celebrations.
Find them HERE.

And here is the TPT preview :) 

What do you think? Is this something you'd like to add to your celebrations throughout the year?

I would like to thank my amazing friend Jaime!  This girl is always there for me. She gave me some fabulous ideas :) 

I'd love to send two of you this file. All you have to do is give me two NEW ideas to add. The last preview picture has all the ones I included already. Don't forget to leave your e-mail.
