My Lucky Day!

I am usually not that lucky.
I have tried (several) times playing the lottery but I don't win (not even a free ticket!).
Once I found a "lucky" penny and later on that day I got a speeding ticket - real lucky, huh!?!?

Well, this past week was one lucky week for me!
I came home from work the other day to find a HUGE package at my doorstep.
Look what was inside!

 My dear friend, Leigh Ann, from Tennessee, sent it to me!
I met Leigh Ann last summer at the I Teach K! Conference in Las Vegas and we just hit it off!
I can't wait to dive into my box of goodies (I think the markers are my favourite - I have searched high and low and cannot find them in Canada!).  The taffy is so tasty too!

Leigh Ann is just getting started in the blogging world.  You can check out her blog here.

Then my luck got even better.
I received an e-mail yesterday telling me I won The Polished Teacher's giveaway.
Again, I NEVER win these things!  
Yippeee!!!  I was thrilled!
I won a whole slew of amazing resources, gift cards and clip art!  I have a very big smile on my face!

I don't know about you but there is something about going back to school in January that I love.  It's as though all of my little kinders are so much more mature!  I'm not pulling my hair out repeating things like I did the first few months of school.  I'm loving this!

Here's a little activity we did this week to welcome the new year.  I got this idea from Julie Lee's blog last year.
Don't you just love kid-writing?  I am really starting to "read" my students work now!
My volunteer, Miss Josie, created the 2 adorable characters around the bulletin board display.

I hope you have a wonderful (and maybe even a *lucky*) weekend!  Enjoy!
