First Grade Cooties

I'm so sick! It all started Friday at lunch. I hope this saline wash kicks in soon. I've also loaded up on Silver, Olive Leaf, Oil of Oregano, Echinacea and more! What do you like using?
Football kicked off today so hubby is glued to the couch. He roots for BAMA! I'm really just a fan of the fall weather, pumpkin lattes, and the sound of football.

This made my day this week. I received my SLANT box. I just love the detail Amanda put in to make the BEST SLANT box ever.
If you have not heard of this new project, visit Lessons with Coffee and click on the SLANT tab at the top of her blog. 

My partner to receive a box from this month was sweet Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness. 

 I already LOVED Amanda's blog. She has the best ideas!
I never knew just HOW creative she was...take a look at the goodies in my box! She said she's not crafty but I definitely beg to differ. Her box was BEE-AUTIFUL!
  It was filled with wonderful goodies and of course they all matched my room. Yellow, Black and Polka dots. 

I can't wait to use these little snack ideas in my own classroom. How precious!!!

I'm in LOVE with every single item. I love all of the ribbon and fun tape. How cute is this frame? It's already on my desk. 
It was such a fun experience. I recommend you signing up next time right here.

  1. feel better. Second graders have cooties too. I was a little stuffy Friday morning and it got worse as the day went on. Today it is full force. I have Mucinex, Claritin, two prescription sinus sprays, distilled water for sinus rinse, tea, and ice cream (even though they say dairy is bad with this stuff, it is my one vice when I am sick), and I had soup for lunch. Let's cross our fingers.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear you are not feeling well! I swear by Echinacea, saline, and hot tea. When my mother was in the nursing home they used silver for all infections which I find interesting. I hope you recover QUICKLY!!!! Love the snack ideas... too cute!

  3. I think Airborne is magic for when you feel a cold coming on...
