As October is ending and Christmas is approaching, many parents like me are starting to think of gift giving. My husband and I have never been too big on getting the boys a lot for Christmas. Any toys we get them usually end up forgotten in the toy bin. I really like the idea of getting them educational items because they seem to capture my boy's attention better than toys. I'm not sure if it is because both my husband and I are teachers (it's in their blood) or we just hit the jackpot with these two... they really only stick to their building toys.

Teachers Pay Teachers News!

Wow, so I'm really not good at keeping up with my blog. I'm really trying to change up my look and my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Eventually I'd like to change up the look here as well. I need to figure out how to make my own template.

   Anyways, I have uploaded a new profile picture for TPT and I'm quite happy with it. This time EVERYTHING in the image was made by me (clip art and font)! It took me a while to get it right but I *think* it is how I want it now. Here it is:


It is circular for TPT, but I left it like this for my store button. I don't know why but I think sloths are adorable! 
   In other store news: I've been working on more interactive notebooks. I am going through science themes and making activities to go along with each one. So far I only have two uploaded. Here is what I have so far.
