So, if you noticed this go up on Hewitt Drive...



And wondered, what is that going to be?....well, Taco Bueno's got you covered.  
Found the answer right in their drive through window.

Fixer Upper Teacher Pay Teacher Set

Hey, look what I found on Teachers Pay Teachers....


Just kidding...or at least, the seller Lita Lita was just kidding.  This was an April Fools joke (a brilliant one, I might add).  No, there wasn't actually a resource that had kids learning about shiplap and estimating budgets with cheery Chip and Joanna Gains graphics (but hmmm....should there be?  *grin*).

Actually, I got curious and after searching TPT I did find a REAL math resource with a Fixer Upper theme (for 6th - 8th graders), and I also found several classroom decor resources inspired by the show and a bunch more by searching shiplap.  Ha!

Happy New Year!




Ring Out, Wild Bells
by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out thy mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.



Happy New Year!!
