The days are getting shorter.  :-(

THE dreams have started (You KNOW the ones I'm talking about).

I've been to my classroom to start arranging and organizing.

I've teamed up with TWENTY of my besties... teacher-bloggers I have met on this amazing journey, to celebrate.  You are going to have SO much fun!!!
So grab a nice cold drink, maybe even a little snack (you'll not be able to tear yourself away), and settle in for awhile as you spend some personal time with your computer and see what we have in store for you.
Along the way, you will collect freebies for grade levels pk-5th grade.
