Luck of the Irish: St. Patty's Day Centers for the Common Core!

Whoa.  {Cue the dramatic music.} It's Sunday afternoon, and my head is still spinning from last week.  I seriously did not stop to take a single picture.  Not even once.  I think I managed to eat lunch maybe once, and I managed to go to the bathroom maybe twice.  All week.  I wish I was exaggerating! Ha!   It was, quite possibly, the longest and most frenzied week of my teaching career, but here I am.  Alive.  :)  I have absolutely NOTHING to share with you from last week, but I am alive, and that is a beautiful thing.

I survived, and somehow I am surviving the painting and renovations going on at my house right now too.  We are in the process of finishing our basement, and right now, I am trying to keep up with cleaning.  The neat freak inside of me is crying.  Literally five minutes after I mop or dust, dry wall dust cakes back onto the freshly cleaned surfaces.  It's been great fun at the Nickerson homestead!  ;)  I know that we will be really happy when it's complete, but right now, I'd LOVE to press the fast-forward button.  I'm generally impatient though! Ha!

Anyhow, I did manage to finish my Luck of the Irish enters after pounding away at them for nearly a month.  I LOVE how they turned out!  :)   The bright colors make me happy, and they almost make me forget about the accumulation of dust on my floors right now.  Almost!  I am so excited to pull them out in a few weeks!  If you are interested, you can snag them HERE for 20% off through tomorrow {Monday}!

I also recently added a small 12 page file for informational text features!  There are little anchor charts in color and in black and white, if you're interested!  You can check it out HERE!

Lastly, I'd love to share a giveaway that's going on right now.  Sweet Rachel from The Tattooed Teacher is hosting a BIG one to celebrate hitting 1,000 followers!  You can snag my poetry centers, and several other resources from some of the most fabulous edu-bloggers out there!  :)  Click the image below to check it out and enter to win! :)  Good luck!!!
