Moving, Freebies, and Some Randomness


Check out this week's Five for Friday linky!


Gourmet Cook - I don't want to brag, but I am a bit of a gourmet cook as evidenced by the pic below.

Grilled Cheese with Pickles - Yes Please!

My Newest Creation - Grilled Cheese and Pickle Sandwich -YUMMY!

See, I told you I was a gourmet cook!  If you would like to be a gourmet cook just like me, check out my affiliate link below to get the Orgreen Flip Jack Pan.  This is also great for making gourmet pancakes!  (FYI - I like it better than other products since it completely closes making it less likely for me to make a mess when I flip it over.)

Only about a minute on each side to make the perfect grilled cheese!


Kids Say... - The setting - Summer School Student Breakfast
       Student: "I will divide my bagel into half see you each get a piece."
       Me:  "If you divide into four pieces, that's called fourths.  You each get 1/4 of the bagel."  -                           Proceeds to demonstrate why this is true.
       Student:  "Wait!  That's fractions.  How could you try to teach math right now?  It's breakfast."

I am such a mean teacher trying to sneak learning in whenever possible.

Annual Make and Take - Today is the annual Make and Take of some of my teacher friends.  I have tons of projects I want to make today.  Let's see how many actually get done.



Packing my Bags - I am packing my bags and getting ready to move to a new blog address.  Don't worry!  The layout and everything will still be the same.  I am just changing to an address that matches the name.  Everything here will remain the same so you can come back and reference any of your favorite posts.

Time For A Change, Courage

Please click the picture to check out my new site.  There, you will see a post for a freebie!  Check it out soon, because it won't last long!  I can't wait to see you there!

  4. The grilled cheese looks delicious! I always have known that pickles are good with them but never occurred to me to put them ON the sandwich, genius! your change of name and address caught my attention, I have been wanting to change the name of my blog for awhile, especially since I want to share it with parents, after all, "educating children with disabilities" might insult them and it is so blah. I actually never noticed that your address didn't match your blog name! very observant, the name of your blog is what caught my attention in the first place, it is so perfect for most of us. anyway, thanks for the food for thought.
