Email from Students and 50% off Item

Even though I haven't been out of school a week yet, I've already received a few emails from two of my sweeties.

One wrote:

I did it!  I got my library card!  You were right!  I do feel smarter!  Then she listed the books she checked out. Most were sequels of books we read in class.

How adorable is that!?  She had been using her Dad's card but I explained to the class that they were old enough to get one and "feel the power" themselves.

The second email came today:

"I lost my tooth but the tooth fairy didn't come.  I am mad.  I have nothing to do. I can't find my Tooth Fairy Make-A Word.  I made 1,000 words in school. My mouth hurts so I might get ice cream tonight.  I miss you.

Poor kid!  No cash from the Tooth Fairy and bored with nothing to do!  (At least imagination is working...1000 words? Oh, my!)

I sent three make-a-words to him and then decided to send them to all my other cuties for a little summer fun! (My class LOVED these and got so good at them!)

After I sent them, I thought I should offer my packet to my bloggy friends at half price until midnight tonight.  Check it out if interested!  ($3.50 until tonight)

And if you lost a tooth today, I truly hope the tooth fairy stops by your house! If not, may a few scoops of ice cream be in your future!


  1. So cute! I remember how proud I was when I got my first library card - such a defining moment in a child's life!

  5. Hey Lisa,
    Thanks for posting on my blog. Like I said, I am really really new to this. I lurk on lots of blogs but don't know anything about linking or buttons or anything. Maybe I can take a blogging for dummies class this summer. Any online tutorials you have heard of..hmmmm, maybe I'll check pinterest. My favorite place online.
