From VA Lovers to GA Peaches & Contractions

 I'VE MOVED!  I'm no longer a Virginia blogger....I'm now a Georgia blogger.  The move has been in the works for quite some time, but I was just worried to go public for fear of jinxing myself.  I've moved to the greater ATL area and I'll be teaching 5th grade next year!  (good thing because 5th Grade Rocks, 5th Grade Rules just wouldn't be the same)  My life has been one big ball of stress for the last couple of months, but with the move all has calmed (knock on wood) and hopefully it's smooth sailing from here.

Other news, better late than never, I've been selected as one of the Top 30 Blogs on the site Top Teaching Colleges!  Cool!  This is pressure to get me back on track and blog like I used to!  I'm going to try to catch up (I have a million pictures of all the things I WANTED to blog about and have never gotten to). 

Okay, so now onto why you read this blog to begin with....


You've probably seen my post on an easy, cheap way to practice plurals (Posting Plurals).  Well, this year, some of my kids struggled with contractions, so I did the exact same thing (see picture below--self-explanatory), but with contractions instead.  It was a great review.  Click here for a fun rock song, here for an R&B song, here for the lyrics to a rap.  Check out Carl's Corner to see a bunch of activities on contractions.
My life.

  9. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS.
