Purple Pencil Sharpener? Yes Please!!!

Hi!!! I am so so soooo excited to share these pictures with you all! I have fallen in love with the best sharpeners for a classroom, created by the great friends at the Classroom Friendly Supplies! I have a green one, you can check my green sharpener HERE !! I have it green because is my favorite color...but now they have a PURPLE SHARPENER!!!! I now own 2 sharpeners and my kids LOOOOVE them!
First of all, I loved that it came assembled! I didn't have to do anything, just take it out of the box...and that was about it! Don't you love the color?

Here is another snap of it (out of the bag). 

Now the fun part, I grabbed a random amount of pencils (not Ticonderoga), sharpened them and voila! My favorite part about these sharpeners is how SHARP they actually are! The face expressions my friends make every time they have a pencil sharpened is amazing! They have never had a pencil THIS sharp...and to be honest...I never had one either...UNTIL NOW!  I truly recommend these sharpeners, my mom and I work at the same school and use them daily! Thank goodness I got this new purple sharpener! Every teacher at our school loves it!!! Thank you so much Classroom Friendly Supplies for creating this! You are awesome!!! #classroomfriendlysupplies

Five for Saturday! (Oops)!

Is so hard for me to get close to my laptop and blog on Fridays! I just want to curl in my bed and sleep! haha! I had a wonderful week! Here are my five! 

I have 22 friends...on our spelling test on Friday 20! yes 20 friends got 10 out of 10! and my other 2 friends got 8 and 9! NOT BAD AT ALL! Last year this never happened! ALL of my kids were so happy for each other and I was so stoked! I am so glad my friends are becoming great spellers! 

I got a letter and a gift from one of my former students, she comes to my class and gives me good morning hugs <3 She brought me that cute duck that is on my desk. :) 

We took a little hike around the school to collect leaves for a science experiment. Thanks to The Brown Bag Teacher for the science post! We learned why leaves change colors and we saw the pigments of the leaves! The kids had a blast! 

We learned about Jhonny Appleseed! We celebrated by eating some delicious apples and since it was Friday we created apples! I didn't have enough time to snap a picture of their apples! :( I'll get on Monday. 

I scored this magnetic chalkboard at Target for ....$3.00!! Yes! it was on clearance and I couldn't believe it! My kids LOOOVE going there...and lately I have seen them playing teacher! They grab the pointer, copy our spelling words, family words (and sometimes our high frequency words) and start testing each other! Ah these kids are stealing my heart, is such a joy to teach them everyday! 

Well this was my week, of course more things happened but these are my top 5! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Currently October...!

Well is my first time linking up with Oh Boy Fourth Grade! Isn't is crazy how we are ALREADY in OCTOBER??? One of my friends told me last week..."Ms. Parra! We are TWO months away from December!" Yes.. let that settle...Christmas is Just around the corner! Oh MY!

I got a new friend today! She's very sweet but I caught me off guard. I'm really excited yet overwhelmed...BUT we'll have so much fun! 

My boyfriend and I have been apart for a whole year now, why is it so hard to follow our dreams ? He is doing his thing and I am doing mine but Oh Lord #longdistance is no fun. He came home this weekend so I guess that's why I have the love bug all over me still :( haha! 

Hey ! World's Teachers' Day! Thank you teachers! You are changing Lives!
