Great News!

I posted this a couple of days ago, and then apparently un-posted it somehow. Sorry if you're reading this again! I did add an update at the end, though!


I posted a little while ago about the idea to do a lemonade stand.

I fully realize that as a new teacher at the end of the year, I have probably bitten off way more than I can chew, but I am so excited about it. The kids are crazy about the idea, my principal LOVES it, and there is so much learning packed into this project!

We are diving right in!

We brainstormed what we would need for the lemonade stand.

We brainstormed places that might help us by sending donations.

We wrote persuasive business letters, learned how to fold them into thirds, and addressed the envelopes.

I added a little note from me with more details.

The school sent them out, and


I am so excited!!!

Updated: We now have THREE places donating to us, including one place that is donating time as well as product, and another place that is offering to donate some cookies, too!

I can't wait to post this weekend about one of the activities we did today. Terrific!

P.S.- Don't forget to join my linky party with your teacher invention! Also you would just plain make me happy!
