Spooky Music


Typically on Halloween we'll pull out the tape deck and pipe spooky music out the window. I have to get it together for tomorrow. We have our candy ready and bagged, but no pumpkin, yet. We also have loose pieces of candy incase we run out; however, a big mouse keeps getting into our candy!

Halloween makes me think of 
beautifully spooky songs.

Solve First & Third World Problems By Renting Books

CampusBookRentals.com can solve first world and third world problems all at once. Let me explain.



My daughter is a senior at the University of Central Florida. This semester Erica solved her first world problem (getting school books) by renting from CampusBookRentals.com. It was easy peasy. All she had to do was go online, find her book, and place an order. First world problem was not a problem when her textbook landed in her mailbox.

Here are perks of renting books from CampusBookRentals.com:
  • -save 40-90% off of bookstore prices 
  • -free shipping both ways
  • -can highlight in the textbooks 
  • -flexible renting periods

If you want to know more, check out this video: 


Erica's story didn't end there because her book rental solved a third world problem by providing funds for Operation Smile. That's right! With every book rental, CampusBookRentals.com will donate funds to help fix a cleft palate of a child who otherwise would not have the means for surgery. 

Now, it's better than ever to borrow your books from CampusBookRentals.com because they have a new program called http://www.rentback.com/. This is a program where others will rent your books and you get paid. How cool is that? Check it out:



Now, it's time to save money for next semester!

WeWriWa - Slater to the Rescue

Weekend Writing Warriors


Check this fun hop out at: 


Those who tuned in last week learned about my little guy being blamed for Slater's fart in class. Things weren't as glum as they looked because Slater came to Knob's rescue.


“I confess!” He [Slater] dramatically flung his hands in the air and then slapped his head on both sides. Ignoring Ms. Benson’s squinting eyes, he said, “It was me and those Country Bean’s sausages my mom cooks. Completely nutritious and delicious, but oh, the consequences of eating them.”

Everyone broke out laughing. Even Ms. Benson cracked a slight smile for a moment before returning to her business-like tone. “Slater, class time.”
Sorry, Ms. Benson. I promise not to eat any more sausages before school.”

October on TPT

I've been selling teaching items on Teacher's Pay Teachers for a year and a half and sales are going well. Since it's October, check out my booklet on Halloween Activities. It contains logical thinking puzzles and other activities complete with answer keys.



I've created different logic problems and lessons throughout my teaching career, so it's fun to be able to sell these and earn cash, too.

The best bargain on my site is my Literary Unit for 
Number the Stars, by Lois Lowry. 



I made this 183 page power point for my class when we read the novel. However, Number the Stars is popular and my work became buried among the hundreds of products for the same book. Usually, I sell my literary units for anywhere from $14 - $16. Since there were so many other products, I originally priced it at $10. But alas, it was still buried, so I formed a plan. I practically gave it away at $5 and then decided I would add .50¢ back to the price every time it sells. The unit is now selling at $6 and listed on page two–instead of page 8–of the Number the Stars materials, which is getting there. The more an item sells, the higher up on the listing it becomes, so I had to give it away to make it visible, and technically, I still am providing a great bargain at $6 a copy.

If you are interested in purchasing items for your class or home school, please visit my store at:

I've made 271 items for multiple ages and grade levels and in various subjects. If you purchase something and leave a comment on this blog post with your email address and what you would like, I will send you an additional product of your choice for free, just for shopping at my store and being a blog reader. Not bad!
