Three for Thursday

Today's Teacher Week Topic is "Three for Thursday".

Here goes!!!

1.  Favorite Fonts - I love fonts!  I mainly use DJ Inkers but now that I'm addicted to blogging, I have been checking out new ones.  Here are some of my fave DJ ones . . . click on them to see the source so you can get them, too!  (Only if you want . . . no pressure!)


I use those A LOT.  DJ Bizzy is super fun to use really, really, really big . . . with different colors for each letter.  I used it for my Mom's Happy Birthday sign in July.  :)


2.  Favorite blog . . . where is the "s" to make that plural????  This is almost impossible for me.  I read so many blogs and have so many favorites!  This is just plain mean.  Why, I oughta . . . :)

I have to say that recently I have been stalking Farley over at Oh 'Boy Fourth Grade.  I know, I know - I teach first.  What on earth could I find over there?  UM, just about EVERYTHING that was ever cute in this world!  That girl is so creative and she already knows this, but I am obssesed with her name.  Farley is her last name but everyone just calls her Farley.  I love it!  I don't know why I love it but I just do!  I always have name envy.  :(    My poor husband - it's not his fault he got this last name but OLDHAM?  Not only is it HAM (which I love to eat at Thanksgiving and Easter but that's about it) but it's OLD ham?  Oh no.  No no no no no.  So I often find myself gazing longingly at other last names . . . like my twin's married name.  Rose.  I mean, have you ever?  Mrs. Rose.  I could handle kids saying that all day. Really.  Or my first teaching partner's last name.  Wolfe.  Mrs. Wolfe.  Yes!  She had paw prints leading up to her door and a sign that said "Welcome to the Wolfe's Den."  YES YES YES!  What can I do with  Oldham?  OLD HAM?  Eventually, it's going to stink really, really, really bad.  SIGH.  (okay, okay, it's not that bad.  We pronounce it Old-um.  Which, if you say it really fast, comes out Ol- Dumb.)  Double SIGH.

So . . . FARLEY, FARLEY, FARLEY!  Here's her blog.   Go visit!  Besides being creative and so darn cute, she is FUNNY!  I love the way she writes.  I GET her.  :)







3.  Favorite online resource --- free educational clipart!!!!  I love their clocks and money.  FABULOUS!  Look at this sample of a worksheet I created for a telling time review:

And look at this sample of a worksheet I created for counting money!




  

Click on it to go visit.  Don't worry.  If you aren't from Florida, it doesn't matter.  I'm clear on the other side of the country, and they just let me get whatever I want.  Now, I don't want anyone to be disappointed.  This is not CUTE clipart.  It's educational.  So far, I have only used the Math clipart.  You are not going to find cute DJ stuff or Thistlegirl stuff or anything like that.  But I was so happy when I found the clocks and the money!  :)  I hope someone can use it!

Well, I will see you tomorrow for the last day of Teacher Week!  Don't forget to link up with I'm a Blog Hopper!!!

  4. Even added difficult to ascertain are what is frequently referred to as "frankenwatches." These timepieces,which cover Citizens,are accumulated from apparatus of different watch brands.The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a archetypal watch omega replica that never goes out of style.This is a time section that has been to the acme of Mount Everest,sunk into the Pacific Ocean and broiled to 500 degrees F,and it still looked and performed great.Retail amount for a Rolex is $5,000 to $10,000,so bethink the adage,"You get what you pay for" if your acquaintance tells you he can get you one for louis vuitton replica just $1,000.One of the a lot of affecting realities about online replica handbags is that they are alleged as the affluence artist replica handbags.Replica handbags or actor handbags appeal is ascent these canicule maybe because the abridgement is still down or there are abounding barter that do not wish to gucci replica absorb their money on cher affluence artist brands.Today,these kinds of handbags can be begin just about anywhere there are even accessible in beating off food and arrangement stores.Surely,replica handbags attending like the 18-carat designs of affluence accoutrements that they wish to prada replica archetype or imitate.The decidedly cheaper amount of actor accoutrements is usually one of the affidavit why there are abounding humans abnormally the women buy them.Anyway,some replica handbags are superior backpack and a lot of of them are able-bodied fabricated and actor the attending of the branded ones.
