Laborless Blog Hop

Hello everyone!
ARE YOU REAAADDDY!!!

Main Graphic Laborless

It is Finally here!


Today I am linking with Laura from Where the Magic Happens, Krista from Teaching Momster, and Lisa from PAWsitively Teaching! I have joined forces once again with my bloggy friends to bring you the best, most amazing giveaway on this Labor Day weekend!

All of us have been thinking about how to thank our readers and followers.   We thought hard and decided that we can treat you to our best ideas to work smarter rather than harder… at school and home!

Slide1

One thing I have done that saves me tons of time is to create bulletin boards that can last the entire school year.  When I was first starting out I would spend hours changing my bulletin boards from month to month.  Even though it was something I enjoyed, I just don't have the time to invest in that now.  All of my bulletin boards are in it for the long haul!

This is my bulletin board for our 40 Book Challenge.  The kids get a stamp on their chart each time they finish a book.


All I will have to do for my Social Studies Word Wall bulletin board is put up the new vocabulary at the beginning of each unit.

I have to be honest, I'm not very good about the relaxing part, but there are a few things I will stop working to do...

I have an inherited sweet tooth, and I love to bake!  Thank goodness for all the gluten free products available now.  I don't know what I would do without them!  This is one of my favorites from the Cake Mix Doctor Gluten Free cookbook...the yummy HoneyBun Cake.  


It's not exactly a way to unwind, but I am planted in front of the television for every Michigan football game.  Yelling at the tv might actually be a way to relieve some other stress, don't you think?


Even though we didn't win the other night, it does my heart good to see Jim Harbaugh back on the Michigan sidelines.  My hopes are high!

I have two products that will definitely make your life easier if you teach 4th or 5th grade social studies.  My Social Studies Resource Bundles contain materials that will last you for an entire year!



What will really make your life easier though is the FREE lesson plans and student packets that I will send you that will also last for the entire year!  If you would like more information on how to receive the free plans and packets for 4th grade, click HERE. For information on the 5th grade materials, click HERE.

  1. Your 40 book challenge is adorable! I live the idea of getting students to push themselves to read that many books in a year.
