Love To Joplin

My New Year's Resolution was to blog more...well, that ended quickly when I crashed my Mac! You realize how much you depend on your computer when you are without it! Needless to say, after a crazy amount of money and several days later...she has returned! I am one HAPPY blogger now...

As I was stalking this morning, I came across Mrs.Wills post.
Mrs. Wills Kindergarten blog received an e-mail from a teacher in Joplin, where they were struck by an F5 tornado.... Here is what her email said:

I teach in Joplin, which made worldwide news last May when our town was cut in half by an F5 tornado. Many of our elementary schools were destroyed or damaged, and as teachers, we have had a roller coaster year. I came from a meeting yesterday where many are struggling with the weight of all we are dealing with. My request is this: would you be willing to donate a created pack of your choosing to give away at a drawing at our upcoming district Kindergarten grade level meeting? The meeting is Monday and I am sorry for the short notice but I did not realize until the meeting how down everyone is feeling.

So I am linking up my penguins math and literacy activities...for EVERYONE...just because teacher bloggers are wonderful and I feel like sharing the love! =) Happy Sunday! Please leave me some comment love...=)
