Welcome to the July edition of The Lily Pad

My name is Lorraine Vasquez and I am the creator and editor of Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies.  I appreciate you taking the time to open and read my newsletter!  I hope you find some useful tips, ideas, and more!  I have been off for the summer for a whole month now and I haven't stopped thinking about school!  Am I the only crazy one out there?  I've decided my theme for next year, I've shopped for my classroom, and I started planning my next year's schedule.   I will say that it isn't so hard to "work" in the summer when you can laminate in your PJs and stay up to all hours of the night blog stalking!  I am hanging out with the family and chillaxing so that means my summer has been successful so far!  Speaking of crazy, I feel like eating an entire cheesecake with strawberries right now!!!! Yup, not just a slice but the entire thing!  Luckily, there is no cheesecake in the house.  I am however, going to make cheesecake stuffed strawberries tomorrow.  Click on the pick below and you too can make these yummy little treats! 

Have you visited the FABULOUS new blog "Classroom DIY"?  If not, I invite you to do so! I happen to be a writer for them and when I joined I had no idea how fabulous it would actaully be!  It is full of incredible easy to make projects!  I post a new project on the 9th of each Month.  Check out my June post - adorable duct tape pens!

Don't forget to visit my new blog We Read, We Blog, We Teach!  This blog is going to be used for Upper Elementary (grades) book studies.  Our first book study will be The Daily 5 and the first chapter will be posted about and discussed starting today, July 1st at 7:00AM central time.  Please stop by and add your comments and thoughts.  We'd love to hear from you!
