Think Happy Thoughts

I could whine and complain about a bajillion things right now... But I won't! Instead, I'll share some good things about my day!

A super sweetie pie student brought me these beauties this morning- right from his garden! They just brightened up our classroom and our day! 

It was supposed to rain today. You know what that means... the dreaded Rainy Day Schedule. Buuuutttt... it didn't start raining until AFTER school! Yipeeee! Thank thank you thank you!

I found this great stuff in the dollar section at Target!!!

They're mini caddies!!! I'm not sure what I'll do with them, but they were so cute I couldn't NOT buy them...

Super cute mouse pads...

Trays PERFECT for centers/take-it-to-your-seat activities:

I found these babies at the Dollar Tree! They are PERFECT size for  regular sized pieces of paper, you can stack them, and stay organized! I'm going to put all of my math activities and stuff in them!

(Those are the Math is Sweet Valentine's Day Themed Math Centers from Stories from Second. My kiddies are lovin' them!!!)

Isn't it sad how the lamest things can excite us teachers! :-) 

What are few good things about your day?!?


  1. Those are beautiful flowers!

  3. Those flowers are gorgeous! Flowers from a kid are always wonderful.

    And those trays are sooo cute.
    I had some good stuff happen today, too. One of my struggling math students finally put together multiplication and division using arrays! Yay for connections!
