As we all know, the Fourth of July is right around the corner. It is hard to believe that it is July already. Kathi, our blogging partner is a firecracker baby. I also have several people in my family who were born on the 4th of July. My dear grandmother is one of those people. So, I had my boys help me make her a gift to give her on this 4th of July.
I plan on having my 3 and 4 year old boys make cookies to stack inside the stars and stripes Pringles can for my grandma. She is going to love it!!
Now, I can not take all the credit for this. I found a "tutorial" on a super cute "do it yourself" website. It is called "I Gotta Create Blog". If you have not checked it out, you need to. Just click here.
There are several things planned for this week.
* Don't forget to plan your post for Wednesday Wisdom. The topic this Wednesday is "Your Classroom Library". How do you organize your books? Do you use baskets or labels? Do you have a place where you keep "special" books? Remember to link up. We are hoping for several linkups this week.
* Stephany, Kathi and I will be having a Freedom Sale on Thursday to celebrate the Fourth of July. We will have 20% off our TpT stores. Our TpT store buttons are on the sidebar.
* Finally, The First Grade Parade will be hosting "Your Favorite Pins" this Friday. We hope to bring you some of our favorite finds.
