Don't keel over from the shock of me posting two times in two days... but I wanted to help Susan at Middle School OCD promote her TPT Sale!

When I started teaching back in the day (heehee) and Susan helped me SO much with everything, so trust me when I tell you that everything in her store is wonderful. Plus, she doesn't post just anything, she makes sure that it's the best of the best.

Go visit her store!!

Also,  since I have you around... I did make a new item for TPT. It's the 5 Stages of Writing Poster to help you keep track of your classroom writing situation.

Go and check it out here!


  1. My husband just got a job promotion causing our family to have to move to a different state. My oldest will be starting middle school and I am so nervous that he won't have any friends. I hope that he will enjoy middle school! Maybe he can make new friends in the summer before school starts.

  2. Dear Blogger,

    I came across your blog and was very impressed with your posts and how you approach education. I work for a business entrepreneur, physician, attorney, and adjunct instructor at ASU named Dr. John Shufeldt, who recently began publishing leadership materials for teens/young adults. He was inspired by local teachers to create Common Core Close Reading curriculum based off of his bookIngredients of Young Outliers: Achieving Your Most Amazing Future, to help students learn qualities like integrity, humility and persistence, while fulfilling education standards. I am writing to ask for your review of the materials in exchange for a free copy of one week’s worth of lesson plans.

    We have our first lesson plan up on and are selling it for only $2.99 (which would be provided at no cost to you for your review). It includes segments from chapter one of the book with space for students to annotate, warm ups, exit tickets, homework, and suggested activities. We are looking to get some reviews on, and also on well-known blogs like yours, to help us spread the word as well as help us gauge the needs of educators in developing more curriculum based on the other chapters. A sample of the lesson plan can be viewed at Please let us know if you are interested in reviewing the materials in exchange for a free copy of the first lesson plan. Your review would also be shared on all of our social media outlets with over 4,450 followers combined.

    Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!

    Best Regards,

    Amanda Pacion
    Director of Operations

  4. Hi Lauren,

    This is Mary from DialMyCalls. I wanted to followup on my last email.
    We, at DialMyCalls, love your site and were wondering if you offer any kind of advertising options. Possibly sponsored posts or banner ads.
    Thousands of teachers are already using our DialMyCalls service. We think DialMyCalls would be the perfect match with your audience. We could even give away our service for free if you wanted to
    run some kind of promotion or giveaway.

    Either way we are up for anything you have available, please let me know.

    I look forward to hearing back from you,

  9. Farhan Akhtar will soon be seen in the upcoming sports drama, Toofaan in the role of a boxer. The film has created quite a storm ever since its teaser came out. The actor was highly praised for his performance in the trailer and has gotten into the skin of his character with extreme ease.Directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Toofaan marks the second collaboration for Akhtar and Mehra, who previously brought Milkha Singh's life story to the big screen in the 2013 biopic Bhaag Milkha Bhaag. Toofaan is produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Farhan Akhtar. The much-awaited movie features a stellar cast with Farhan in the lead alongside Mrunal Thakur, Paresh Rawal, Supriya Pathak Kapur and Hussain Dalal. The Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra directorial will premiere globally on Amazon Prime Video on May 21, 2021.The teaser shows glimpses from the life of Ajju Bhai, played by Farhan. He is the town goon, a thug from Dongri who beats up people at whim, creating chaos wherever he goes. However, he carves a new life for himself when he decides to become a boxer. With support from his girlfriend (Mrunal) and his trainer (Paresh), and a lot of hard work, Ajju Bhai becomes 'Toofaan'.Rakeysh is reuniting with Farhan after seven years and he said the actor-director was the perfect fit for the lead role in Toofaan. "After working with Farhan in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, I was certain he would be the perfect protagonist for Toofaan. The best thing about him is that he does not act the part, but lives it completely.

    "Toofaan is a story that will motivate and inspire all of us to get out of comfort zones and fight towards achieving our dreams. We cannot wait to present our film to viewers across the globe," the filmmaker added.Earlier, speaking about the film, Farhan had said, "The script of a film should move him as an actor, feels Farhan. Putting this level of effort is only possible, if the story motivates you to give your best. At the end of the day, we’re not making a film to showcase a great physique, but to emotionally engage the audience with the journey of the character. To make that experience believable, all efforts are worth it."i think you are excited to watch more movies on my website.there is more can check & watch now here.
