Teacher Appreciation Week and A Hermit Crab

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!! 

I have a freebie all set and ready to go for you, and now I'm just waiting on my license from Scrappin' Doodles to be able to SHARE it with YOU!!!! This week was just so crazy and I couldn't find a spare minute to even think five minutes ahead. Can you, living in the moment!!! I was hoping to have the license by today but that didn't happen. So, I'm sorry and I will make sure to get the freebie posted ASAP!!!  

In other news...

I posted { here } a while back about an opinion writing project we were working on... What class pet should we get? The kids did an amazing job on their writing. I even had them type their writing into Pages on their iPods and they added pictures. Some even took it to the next level and made an iMovie about the class pet we should get. It was very exciting!!! How funny is this...

***Side note... How weird is that picture of the hamster playing golf!?!? ***

Then, to decide which pet we should get, I turned it into a behavior thingy (of course!...especially this time of the year!!!). And thanks to Rachelle at What The Teacher Wants for her super idea!!! Find it { here }. And low and behold, Team Hermit Crab won! (There was no way I was getting a hamster. No way.) So yesterday, I headed off to PetCo with Abby to pick up our class pet. Here she is, waiting in line, eating sniffing all the yummy treats. 

And I'm not sure how I feel about it.... 

It's kind of creepy. And big. And I don't really want to touch it...

I texted my mom last night...

The stinky little thing is still in it's food bowl. I'm not sure if he's stuck...? Or maybe he likes to sleep in on Sundays??? Or maybe he's having brunch. I don't know. 

I'll let you know how this whole hermit crab thing pans out...

I PROMISE I'll be back ASAP with a freebie!!! (Just waiting on that license!!! :) Have a great day blog hopping and shopping!!! I know I will!!!!

  3. You are so brave!! I have avoided a class pet for 11 years!!! I'm scared that I will get stuck caring for it and am WAY to lazy to add that to my plate! :) Congrats on the new hermit crab! Hopefully some of your kiddos will volunteer to care for it over breaks!!!
