A Dedication to the 20 Beautiful Children of Sandy Hook

This Poem was emailed to me by a Friend.  It is so beautifully written. 
I thought more people should read it.  Thanks for Sharing Cameo.

Silence for Sandy Hook Elementary

I am so saddened by what has happened in Newtown, CT.  My heart goes out to the children, their families, friends, teachers and staff.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

 I am participating in the Teacher Bloggers Day of Silence to honor and remember the victims and their families. Please join me in lifting the families and this community up in prayer.

Romance Novel mini album

   I haven't been posting any of my scrap crafts lately.  This blog's name is Scrap N Teach.  The two things I love to do in life.  Teach and do paper craft.  I can't have one without the other.  I love to go to school everyday and teach what I've spent hours planning for.  Things don't always go the way I want, but everyday I go home and think of more things to do the next day.  I do this everyday until I'm so worn out that I need a break from thinking.  So I turn to crafting.  Crafting is the medicine for my sanity.  It helps me to relief any stress.  It brings joy to my body and soul. 
   When I craft, I'm usually making something for a friend.  Its more fun that way.  Here's a little mini album I made for a friend's birthday.  I used the Prima Romance Novel paper pack.  This paper is sooooo beautiful!  I didn't add a lot of embellishments because it didn't need it.  I used #10 envelopes to make the pages.  Thanks for visiting.





The Polar Express! Free Xmas tags

     I am really excited about next week!  I will be to teaching The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg in the classroom.  I have so many fun activities planned for this unit.  Hoping to have enough time to do it all.  This is a great book for teaching similes.  My students enjoy finding similes in the book and then creating their own on snowflakes.   
     For this year's Polar Express  pajama party.  I've created some fun decoration.  Just one more thing to add to the festivity.  I decided to put it on my TPT store and Teacher's Notebook if anyone else would like to purchase it.  I have two different color sets.  One in red, blue and yellow (gold).  These are the colors from the book.  And the other set is in red, white and light blue.  Have a wonderful PJ party!  Thanks!
