B is for Book Boxes

Do you have the Mainstays ice bin buckets for your book boxes?

Have your darlings decorate their own labels before you tape them to the front of an ice bin turned book box. (Yes, I'll probably laminate them first.)

Click the pics to get them for free.

T is for Temple Grandin

You know those times you come across something and you're like "where has this been all my life?" Well, that just happened to me with the work of Dr. Temple Grandin. A good friend/coworker sent me a facebook invite to this autism presentation.

I was like "who is this lady?" but it looked like fun. I googled her. I decided it's stuff I should hear about. I mean, any of you who've been following me know I started this blog to share the wacky things Mr. TV said/did.  And I'm sure I'm going to have many more autistic darlings in the years (and years and years) I have left.

So I went. And I'm so very glad I did.

She was great! Her TED talk basically covers the same things she presented to us, but the question and answer session was quite informative and meeting her was beyond cool. We actually passed her in the hallway and my friends had a fangirl moment.

 I had to buy her book The Autistic Brain to go along with my Mindset and neuroscience reading.

 My next step it to watch the movie in which she is portrayed by Clair Danes. Apparently I've been under a rock and missed it!

I'm super exited to learn more about her life and the things she suggests for children with Austism.

(Thanks for taking me Mrs. Kessler and Mrs. John!)

O is for Olaf


You've most likely seen this adorable idea floating around pinterest.

2nd Grade Stuff  Everytime you get a compliment in the hallway, they add a part to Mr. Potato Head.  When he is all put together, have a classroom reward.

And you might have downloaded Mrs. Lirette's awesome sign like I did.

Well, I went to Target today to find myself a Mr. Potato head and they did not have him. But guess what they did have! (On clearance with an additional 20% off with the Cartwheel app this week! Woohoo!)

This guy!

And I couldn't find anything already made for him, so I made one. Just click the pic and you can have it too!

I just love summer!
