Sunday Scoop - plus a giveaway!

Good Sunday evening to you all!  I hope you are resting, relaxing, and planning on sleeping in tomorrow (assuming your schools are closed for Martin Luther King, Jr. day:))

I'm linking up with the Teaching Trio for their Sunday Scoop!

I am presenting to the staff about using Animoto in class, so I need to get my examples together!  Has anyone used Animoto in class before?
My laundry is piling up faster than I can wash it.  I'm hoping  I can finish it up tomorrow!!!
I've been working on a problem solving project, and I just need to put the finishing touches on it, but every time I open it up, I find something else to add or tweak just a bit!

Since tomorrow is MLK day, I get to stay home with the kids.  I'm hopeful they will sleep in a bit - then we can go see Paddington Bear.  My 5-year-old asked me to take him, but I'm not sure how his 1-year-old sister will do.  We went to the movies several times when she was younger (and would sleep through the whole movie).  But I'd really like to try and see it- I think it would mean a lot to him.

My sisters (and our families) are planning on taking a much need whole family vacation (I have 3 sisters, two are married with 2 children each and the other is in a relationship, plus my dad - so we are talking about 15 people in one house).  I'm so looking forward to it (all of my family still lives in Kentucky, so being able to see them everyday for a week sounds great!), but need to find the perfect place!

Also, I am participating in a giveaway of Maryland sellers hosted by The Techie Turtle Teacher, OC Beach Teacher and First Grade Spies.

I donated to the Middle and High School Prize pack - its my Graphing Linear Equations Scavenger Hunt.  

Here is the rafflecopter to enter the give-away:

Good Luck!


  1. Hi Stephanie! I used Animoto once for my class' end-of-the-year collage. It was awesome! My sister also used it for her wedding collage. Good luck with the presentation! I bet you'll do great! :)

    Happy Days in First Grade

  2. Your vacation sounds like it will be crowded, crazy, and wonderful! I'm so happy to have a third day off. Coffee and blog-reading instead of rushing out the door! Love it.
    Have a great day.
    Laughter and Consistency
