Show & Tell Tuesday - May


Here's my quick Show and Tells in the middle of a busy week!


Barnaby took his first trip up to the cottage last weekend.  He seemed to enjoy exploring the new space!



And Jake enjoyed trying out his hammock up there for the first time!  What a great place to enjoy your coffee!



We had lunch at the local brewery right after I had picked up a friendly duck to add to the cottage decor.  The waitress didn't miss a beat, and had a beer at the table for him within a minute!  



Our Mother's Day projects turned out very nicely!  The students wrote cinquain poems, and we framed them accented with a tissue paper flower.  




Now here's what you need to know to link up and share your Show & Tells!

Linky Information:

1. This is a monthly linky.  The idea is to “Show” up to four pictures of things from school, home, etc. and “Tell” us all about them.  Created the most amazing bulletin board ever?  Show & Tell us about it!  Have the best seats at a Red Wings game, right next to the bench?  Show & Tell us about it!  Play the best game at a party with your class?  Have a pet that just got the worst haircut ever?  Show & Tell us about it!  Only have one thing to Show & Tell about?  Not a problem! 

2. Product promotion will be limited to one and only if you are introducing a brand new product or sharing pictures of how you just used a product in your classroom.  The focus should be on sharing, not pushing things to sell. 

3. Please choose one of your Show & Tell pictures as your image for the thumbnail and type your blog name to go below the picture. 

4.  Use the main Show & Tell Tuesday button and link back to my post.  Use the numbered Show & Tell buttons in your post to share your pictures.

5. Please leave comments on at least three other posts, including the ones before and after yours.  It's always nice to get feedback from your blogging buddies!

Teacher Appreciation Week

Teacher Appreciation week begins on May 8 this year, so now's the time to plan how to tell the teachers you work with or those having an impact on your own children's lives how much you appreciate the time and effort it takes to do this difficult job.

There are tons of great ideas to be found on Pinterest, and here are just a few of my favorites!


Crazy Little Projects has a bunch of gift tags that you can grab for free and attach to candy bars.  So sweet!


Fun Squared has a bright idea for a fun little gift that could work for lots of occasions!

The Boy and Me shows you where to go to make this adorable graphic which can be used on a thank you or could even be framed for a lasting gift.  


Two Silly Monkeys has a cute poem that you can print out and tie to a jar of M & M's, a great go-to stress reliever!


I thought this ice cream scoop idea and free printable tag from Moments That Take My Breath Away was a cool idea!

My favorite idea was this fingerprint art!  I thought this would make a great retirement gift for a teacher too!


I especially like the dandelion picture but Balancing Home offers a free printable of a fingerprint tree which would make the project a breeze!


Enter the giveaway below and you can win all kinds of goodies that every teacher would appreciate, including a $50 TPT gift card!
