Under the Sea inspiration for a Freebie!

So today was NOT a beach day, even though I had great plans to got there today....

But that's ok, because we made an impromptu family trip to the zoo!! It was about 1:30 when we made this decision - we were right next door to it...needless to say - yes, it was just a TAD warm (ummm...sarcasm - I live in FL people!)...and we didn't have a stroller in the car for B, so I had to wear the wrap. ha! While it IS her favorite place to be, it can get very hot having that much body heat pressed up against me...lol. That's ok though -it actually makes bringing her places so much easier.

Anyway - I was kind of bummed because I left my wallet in the car.

Hubs had his wallet - so he paid to get in....with his card.

Thought nothing of not having any cash on hand (I ALWAYS carry a few dollars on hand..you never know when you need it - case in point.)

There's a new dinosaur exhibit at our zoo. I really want to see it!!! And so does A...she LOVES dinosaurs! Problem was, you had to buy tickets to get in....

Cash only.

Gosh darn it.

And we weren't about walking all the way out to the car to get cash and walking all the way back.

Boo.

Oh well. Next time we know.

Anyway, we left around 3:30 - hot and sweaty and tired. A napped in the car on the way home. B did not. She decided she wanted to eat...and when she doesn't get what she wants WHEN she wants it - loud screams start to ensue....LOUD!! I've never heard another baby scream as loud as she can. She can literally make your eardrum vibrate. lol. But A napped through it all...so jealous.

So since we were all so tired, we came home and watched some movies...Disney, of course.

Mama's pick.

I picked one of my all-time faves..

The Little Mermaid.

As a little kid, I could sing all those songs and recite the whole movie! I LOVED it!! I guess because it's the beach and ocean??? lol...

And Aladdin - LOVE that one!! Probably because she lives in a foreign country and I love to travel! (look at me getting all Freudian over here!).

Anyway, I was inspired by my little movie watching, so I made a contraction scoot...
(please don't yell at me - it's the Friday before I have to go back to work - time to start planning, and Sunday is a wash because I'm going to be out of town to visit an old friend - at a beach! ha!!)

Anyway, this uses the words not, is, and are - working on teaching the kids that the apostrophe "kicks" out the unneeded letter - just the one. So those are the words we're working on mastering...(that darn 's tricks  them - they think EVERYTHING needs an 's on it!!! argh!! lol)

So, click the pic to download for free! :)

see all the characters from The Little Mermaid?? lol

And thank you to everyone who leaves feedback when they download - I LOVE feedback!! :)

Too bad we didn't get to see the dino exhibit - I might have been inspired to use those cute dinos I have - lol.

Oh, P.S.

I decided to extend my One Day Sale for another day - since it's the last day of the quarter - why not??? :)


I don't feel like redoing the pic though, so we'll just pretend that the one day sale is just for tomorrow..lol.

I better go change the times for the sale on my stores now...before I forget!

Wow - can you tell I'm ready for the sunshine-y weather??? Look at all my pics I'm making - don't they just scream happy sunshine?!? Those colors just put me in such a good mood!

Thank you for posting so much cheerfulness! I LOVE Aladdin and I LOVE Mulan!! Sounds like you had a fun fam. day...good for you & I love that you are always getting inspired...LOL!! You crack me up!!

I am getting much better at correcting my spelling when commenting - I almost wrote carck instead of crack...yikes. I also had an email a few weeks ago...I can't believe I haven't told this yet...

On one of my graphic sets I couldn't fit all of them )Oh, it was soccer), so I put the backgrounds and frames in a separate file and posted it for free. I decided to direct people to the free frames when they bought the soccer set so I wrote:

I had a few that didn't "tit"...

Hahaha...me and my endless spelling goofs when posting....

Have a great weekend!!

Thanks for sharing. My sister's favorite Disney movie was The Little Mermaid. I like it too but my favorite is Beauty and the Beast. I'm new to the scoot game and I'm trying to figure out how I can make it work for some of the kindergarten skills we're working on. Most of the games I've seen are a little advanced. I'm saving this cutie contraction game for first grade next year.

Thanks for the cute game. I just keep thinking how lucky you are having 20 or fewer students in your class!:)

Thanks so much for the share. I love KPM Doodles! I just bought her sneakers and I'm thinking up all kinds of ways to use them.

Hey Jen, I feel like I haven't talked to you in forever! I was hoping to escape through one of your gorgeous beach photos, sorry the weather wasn't great!

Thanks for sharing this game--we are working on contractions right now! :) :)

The Little Mermaid is my all time favorite movie. Aladdin is not far behind. Me and my sister had these Disney Sing Along VHS Tapes for both of those fabulous movies too. Of course we had to fight over who got to be the girl singer. haha!
