Mother's Day Galore on this 5 for Friday!

Five for Friday on Saturday!
Mother's Day Handprint Bouquets

Mother's Day Message in a Bottle

Mother's Day Gift Envelope
I had my parent helper fold 12x18 sheets of construction paper and staple to make these easy folder-envelopes to present to Mom!
First we decorated....

 We took out all our Mother's Day gifts...

And placed them neatly inside the envelope.

I think the Moms are going to be so excited!!
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

Grandma Rose
Do you have a special reader that comes in each week and reads to your class?  I have Grandma Rose.  She has been such a delight to have this year and the kids adore her so much.

Is it really the Quietest Pencil Sharpener???
I had to test this out for myself to see what all the fuss was about....
 Can this be true?  
A sharpener that is quiet as mouse,
that sharpens so magnificently?
 I will admit, it looks pretty, the kids were loving the color and boy did it get attention when my little Miss gave it a run for it's money....

 My mouth was hanging open,
stunned when she was turning the knob...  
Not a peep.
And within seconds, I mean seconds,
look at how sharp her pencil was!!!
After years of loud, obnoxious electric pencil sharpers...
After years of paying a small fortune on replacing those electronic sharpeners....
This hand-cranked modern marvel has my stamp of approval in Room 102!
Troy, your product is AMAZING!
Why did it take me 11 years of teaching to find you???
My kids were the quietest they have been in months,
listening to hear for any noises that the sharpener would make...
It was hilarious, but seriously, you could have heard a pin drop!
Friends, add this to your back-to-school supply list and pass the good word.  MUST HAVE item for any teacher!

And, THANK YOU Troy for saving my sanity!  Your product is amazing!
