Have you been introduced?

I am thrilled to report that I received a new Kindle and an IPOD touch for my reading classrom. The students are so excited to use these items. I have already added a bunch of educational apps to the ipod, but realized I do not have a lot of money to add books to the Kindle. So, I will be using my Swagbuck points to redeem some Amazon gift cards in order to download some books.
I love Swagbucks because all you have to do is use the website as a search engine and you receive points. Then you can redeem those points for prizes such as Paypal money, gift cards, etc... If you haven't been introduced to Swagbucks, let me introduce you.... here

Look at this!

A couple of days ago I signed up with a brand new company called Bamboo Pink. Right now it is free to join as they are having their new welcome launch. I want these items! And I want to make some money selling these items! To sign up for free -

Cloud Cake, anyone?

I love Little Debbie snacks, don't you? Here are some of my favorites -

Little Debbie has come out with its new snack cakes called Cloud Cakes, which are light, crème-filled golden sponge cakes. There are 10 individually wrapped Little Debbie Cloud Cakes in one carton, and approximately 16 cartons in a case. The suggested retail price is $3.09 a carton. These are available in mass merchandisers, supermarkets, dollar stores, variety stores and some convenience stores and other retailers nationwide.

I was sent some boxes of Little Debbie snacks to review.My students helped me review them today. Here are some things they said - "It is creamy and sweet. It's real good" , "It is nice and fluffy", and "Soft and delicious." They definitely enjoyed it! They asked for another assignment like this one.

I will be giving away a case of these yummy Little Debbie cloud cakes! I will choose a winner on Friday, February 18 at 3pm.

I work at a public middle school and I was walking down the hall today and overheard a girl (12 years old) talking to another student.

She said, "I hate that I am the only one single of all of my best friends. It just sucks."

You are 12. Really?
