June Currently + 1000 Instagram Follower Giveaway!

I've been neglecting this little blog!!

Listening: Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran

This has been my favourite song for the past couple of months.
It may possibly be my favourite song ever!

I'm sure most of you have heard it (it's all over the radio) but if you haven't here is a link to the music video!

Loving: Reaching 1000 followers on Instagram

Instagram is my favourite form of social media so I was super excited to reach 1000 followers last week!

I'm having a little giveaway to celebrate!
Enter below to win a $10 TpT gift card!

Thinking: I need to prep more activities for our human body inquiry.

My students showed interest in the human body after hearing about a boy in Grade 1 who has diabetes.  While explaining what diabetes is to the kids they came up with a lot of other questions about the body.  We have started to explore things and have done some observing of skeletons and watched some youtube videos on the digestive system and the heart.

Here are some great websites that I found with lots of hands-on ideas to try!


I'm for sure going to try the hands-on demonstration of what blood is made of!
I just need to get my hands on some red water beads!

Wanting: To get in our new house and decorate!

We had our final viewing of our house today and we are so anxious to get in our house and start making it our own! We move in this Friday and we are planning to paint our living/dining room and master bedroom this weekend.  Which leads me to the next item...

Needing: To finalize paint colours!

We have decided to paint our living/dining room on the main floor and our master bedroom as soon as we move in.  I brought a whole bunch of paint chips to our viewing today and I think I've narrowed it down to these two colours! I was going back and forth between Revere Pewter and Edgecomb Grey (also by Benjamin Moore) for the bedroom but I think I'm going to go with Revere Pewter! Picking paint colours makes me so nervous!

Summer Lovin: Spending Time in Our New House!

As you can tell from the majority of this post we are so excited to move into our first home!
I can't wait to enjoy our deck and read and maybe create some TpT products on our brand new outdoor sofa!

We are planning to get the ARHOLMA Outdoor Sofa from IKEA :)

We also have a hot tub that we are looking forward to enjoying and I can't wait to start creating an actual home office!

That's it for me!
I promise to be back with some teaching related blog posts after I am settled into our new home!
