Back to Normal and a New Workstation Jar!!

After 18 long weeks of training and 4 hours, 42 minutes of running the Chicago Marathon is now history (well, a week ago it was history)!
Pre-race (it was a little chilly!!)
I feel back to normal and now have a little more time on my hands.  Last week was crazy with Fall Parent/Teacher conferences but those are history as well.  
I have 9 TpT projects in the works and was able to finish one last night.  One of the workstation jars that I used during the second half of the year when I taught first grade was my Sentence Jar.  Students choose different colored circles out of the jar to make silly sentences.  Not only do they learn how to make complete sentences, but it also helps with parts of speech.  It can be used in conjunction with my Voice Jar to add some expression to the sentences.  Feel free to check it out at my TpT or TN stores.


  1. Your sentence jar sounds like a fun idea. Congrats on your run!

  4. Your blog is cute! I'm amazed when I hear of people who ran a marathon! I'm hoping to do a half marathon in the next year or two...but I really need to get my butt in gear. I can do a 5k right now if I had to, and I've done a 10k in the past. So....hopefully I get to a half marathon...

    We are ALL Special!
