We have eight days of school left and my brain is fried! Ya'll I am out of energy and the kids are wearing me out! I stumbled upon a totally funny YouTube channel that I thought I would share with you in case your kiddos could use a brief distraction!

These fairy tales and nursery rhymes are HILARIOUS, I tell you! They have even me cracking up! We started watching Three Billy Goats Gruff because we were doing a STEM project and that led me to all the other ones they have. The man telling the stories has an English accent which makes them even funnier, and the modern twist on old tales....they are just so so funny. So if you need a little distraction, here is a good one!    (Please preview before you are with your students, some of the ads before the videos are not always "school" appropriate. I always cue it up before my students are ready to watch)

Three Billy Goats Gruff:


Chicken Little

The Gingerbread Man

The Princess and the Pea


Pinocchio and the Big Bad Wolf


These are just a few of the funniest ones we liked!
Maybe we I can show them again tomorrow?? Probably not, I will have dig into my bag of tricks for something else! How many days do you have left until summer?

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week Eve!


Teachers are some of the hardest working, caring, and passionate people I know. You never hear a teacher say, "I'm in this for the money, fame, and fortune".  Teachers teach because they have a passion for learning, sharing, and changing lives one lesson at a time.

So this week, my fellow teachers, is about you! Let's celebrate those little victories that never find their way onto a standardized test, like that one student who actually grabbed a copy of your favorite read aloud book for some quiet reading at their desk!

This week, in honor of you, I've joined forces with some of your favorite bloggers and teacher companies to bring you the 2nd Annual We {HEART} Teachers Event!


You thought last year was good... wait 'til you see what we've got for you this year!

No for real.. .like $10,000 in prizes more...
