Black Friday, Cyber Monday, a Winner and a Freebie!

As you gobble up your turkey day leftovers and think ahead to the holidays, I'm seriously considering checking into a hotel until December 23, or so. Between all the deep cleaning to get ready for Thanksgiving and the cleaning up after Thanksgiving, I don't want to clean another floor tile, dish, toilet, window or piece of furniture for a looooooong time. I hate to clean in the first place, so all of this cleaning compacted into a small space of time kind of pushed me over the edge. If any family members are reading this, the #1 item on my Christmas list: gift certificates to a cleaning service!! As much as I love a clean house, I really hate to be the one cleaning it.  Who's with me?

To break out of my Grinchy mood, I will now tell you some cool things unrelated to housecleaning. I feel my zen returning (btw, did you know zen is not an acceptable word on Words with Friends? I think they did that on purpose just to be un-zenlike!)

1. TeachersPayTeachers is having an incredible Cyber Monday sale on, you guessed it, Monday! TpT is discounting all purchases 10% and many sellers will be offering additional discounts on top of that. Individual sellers may be discounting different amounts, but the highest you'll see is a total of 30% off. My entire store will be 30% off on Monday only. Just enter the following code for any purchases that day to automatically receive your discount: CMS28

2. I have decided that Cyber-Monday isn't always the most convenient for people who actually have real jobs in the non-cyber world to attend on Monday and can't be tethered to a computer to save precious pennies, so I'm also having a Black Friday sale today! I hope that either way, you can find some helpful teacher created resources. My entire store is 15% off today only, no special code necessary.

3. I have a very special holiday giveaway for you starting December 1. Five days of fun, free, no-strings attached classroom activities for you every single day. There will also be a contest to win a serious bundle of prizes from me to end the giveaway days and all you will have to do to enter is leave a comment  (not now...on December 1)  I even made a cute little graphic to help spread the word about the giveaway days! More info on him coming soon, but feel free to pin him (but please be gentle).

Here's one freebie for you now, just for reading this far! I'm doing this one with my kids Monday to start decorating our room! Just click on the picture to download it from TpT.

And finally, the winner of the Gobble Gobble giveaway hosted by Sassy in Second is Ali! Congrats Ali, Yvonne will be contacting you with details shortly.
Enjoy your weekend my friends. I'm off to see the Muppet Movie today and I am so stinkin excited! Manah Manah, do do do do-do....Manah Manah do do do do...



  1. I am with you on the cleaning all the way! I have all wood floors in my house and have to constantly go over them. I have company on Thanksgiving and Christmas this year so it's clean, clean, clean! Now I have a kitten that tracks kitty litter all over the floors! AGHH!

  2. I love your freebie for the Gingerbread Glyph! I teach 2nd grade too (this is my 2nd year) and I LOVE your blog! I am a new follower! Stacy
