Hiya Peepers

Shuna here

I am once again linking up with Farley 

for her monthly currently feature

Listening: I am sitting here listening to Etta James and NCIS while trying to finish up my MLK pack.

I must have noise to create. I can't function when it is quiet

I have to have noise when I fall asleep too

I know

I am weird!

Lovin: This break!!!!!!!! nuf said

moving on

Thinking: 5 am next Monday is going to kick me in the rear

My sleep pattern is all kinds of jacked up 

Wanting: MacBook Pro

 I want it 

no real reason

just got this computer less than a year ago

but I want a Mac

So there

Needing: Nothing

I am blessed

I don't have enough room in my house for all the stuff I have now

OLW: Laugh

It really is the best medicine

Many not solve all your problems but it will definitely make you feel better!

Make sure to hop on over to Farley's blog and link yourself up

New Year's Linky

Recycled new years resolutions

Hiya all

Shuna here

Dang is it already 2013? I must be getting old

Seriously this year quickly escaped me

So since it a new year it is that time

You know that time when you are all bubbly and 

sentimental and make all of these plans for the 

new incoming year.

My personal resolution is to lose some major weight AND do better with saving money!

So I promise that I will do better

Here's to a awesome new year

A little Late { Elf Antics}

So this post is very very late but I have had absolutely no freakin energy to do anything

Hiya Peeps 

Long time no blog

Well I am going to try to do better but this year is seriously stressing me out!!!!

This week has been very busy for us

First I read the story The Elf on the Shelf to my kiddos

and I asked them if they wanted a elf to come visit our room and they all shouted yes.

So I told them that if they wanted an elf to come visit our school then they had to write a special 

request to Santa.

Holly Blogger and an Update

Hi all

Shuna here

I hope that you had a great Christmas!

I got to travel here for Christmas

Beautiful isn't it

I spent a week in El Paso, TX

For some reason I was under the impression that it was a small town

Very small

but boy was I in for a surprise!!!! This baby is huge

Most of you know that my brother is in the Army and he is stationed in El Paso.

He is scheduled to deploy in January so my family decided to spent Christmas with him


I participated in the Holly Blogger Exchange 

It was so much fun and I couldn't wait to get my goodie from a blogger friend

I am late posting because I just got back and just now got to open my gift!

Here is my gift that I am in super duper love with!

Thanks Michelle 

So cute

Apparently my small problem with kit kats is getting around!

As you can see I ate some before snapping the picture

Are you in love with the cute paper and frame that Michelle used for my gift? You can scoop it up free here 

If you would like to participate in the next blogger exchange hop on over to and follow

Now I am off to sleep 

The almost 18 hour drive from El Paso has worn me out

Here are a couple more pics from my trip

As you can see I have a small obsession with mountains. I climbed one once while in Chattanooga but that is whole nother story! Lets just say that the trip down was a lot faster than going up......

Peace out Peeps

Teaching Writing and Some Freebies

Hiya peepers

Shuna here

I am in need of a serious mental break

I am counting down the days till I get to the much needed break

I am linking up for the 12 Days of Christmas
Shout out for Tiffany at Time 4 Kindergarten for hosting
So today's topic is how do you teach writing?

I have blogged about how I use the 4 square method to help my kiddos develop their writing skills and

in past years it has been a very useful tool in helping my littles improve their writing skills! But this

year it is going much slower than I would like. My kiddos are just not doing well with it. They are able

to get 1 or 2 good sentences but they are not able to give anymore than that. They are having such a hard

time writing more than a few sentences on a given topic. So I have started sending a Write Away sheet

home with them each week. I was a little skepetical as to how it would go but it has been pretty good

and I am starting to see the results in class!

Here are the first few that I used in my class

I am planning to do a new one each week and uploading it for all of my peepers

I have updated these freebie and have added several more topics.

You can get the updated copy by clicking the pic below

I shared these writing cards a little while ago and I thought that I would post them again in case you missed them

I am linking up with Freebielicous

Enjoy and Peace Out Peeps

Hop on over to Maria's blog to see what goodie she has for you today
