Saturday Favorites

I seem to have missed out on Saturday Favorites last week... ooops!  Sorry!

This week I thought I'd share some of the things I've made and have for download in my Teacher's Pay Teacher's Store.  If you haven't yet checked out this site, you need to!  It's just amazing what you can find on there!  Especially geared toward teachers and homeschoolers, this site packs in the products.  Basically, anyone can create a "store" and sell or give away downloads that could be worksheets, activities, SMART board files, powerpoint presentations, data collection sheets, you name it.  The top seller, who I BELIEVE has been at this for just around TWO years, has recently hit a sales figure of ONE MILLION DOLLARS!  Hello!  And with our country moving toward Common Core, and with school districts not able/willing to shell out big bucks to purchase all new Common Core geared curriculum, this type of site is perfect for adding in items that hit those CC standards!

So here are a couple of what I've listed so far and I have a few larger units in the works currently.  Most of the rest of the items I've uploaded thus far have been Dolch Word Data Sheets, Dolch Word Flash Card, and a few other type of data collection sheets.

Would you consider checking out my "store" and following me???  I'd love to see those follower numbers GROW! :)  I've really enjoyed creating items for my classroom and putting them in the store to allow others to use them as well!  You can click these pictures to take you to those items in my store, or click my store logo at the top right of the sidebar to go there as well!

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
