My Weekly Web Finds

Like all proper young adults, I spend much of my free time mindlessly surfing the Internet. But now, thanks to my blog, I can justify this surfing by posting neat finds on my blog for all my lovely readers to come across as they, too, mindlessly surf the Internet… okay, this is getting out of hand.

Here’s some treasures that I have enjoyed the past week:

My Funny Valentine: I think I’ve found the perfect valentine for the B.F.


A bit of Fitspiration: I’ll take one of each, thank you.

Running Tanks

A good reminder:

Mock Lasagna: Tried and tested – this recipe is quick, easy, and delicious!

For my sweet tooth: Puppy Chow Cookies  – I need to make these like, yesterday.

Fashion Favorite: Excuse me while I go attempt to madly recreate this outfit.


And finally, the inspiration behind my DIY Starburst Mirror that I made this summer:

Well, that’s all for now, folks! Stay tuned for more creations.



Syllable Sort: Classroom Freebie!

Hello again!

Today I offer you another free classroom resource, because who doesn’t love free things, right? Anyways, today’s resource is a syllable sort. The package includes five different pages of words, with 1-3 syllables, that students sort out using the headings included. There is also a worksheet for students to keep track of where they are putting each word, thus incorporating some writing practice as well! Teaching syllables is an important part of phonological awareness, and this is a fun and engaging way to do so!

Syllable Sort

I plan on using the sort in conjunction with Jan Brett’s book, “The Mitten.” I have always loved this book, and it’s a good winter-themed book to use during the dreary months here in Iowa. It also lends itself well to a great discussion about the theme of the story.
