This week I wanted to try out loose glitter again. I adore sparkly nails, but, like everyone else I am sure, detest removing glitter polish! It takes way too long.
Last time I tried loose glitter it lasted the whole week and was extremely easy to remove! I decided it was time to give it another try.
For this manicure I used: (Click the name for links!)
Maybelline Color Show - Canary Cool
Loose ultra fine glitter from Michaels
I loved how the glitter came out this time, and I finally found a way to be a lot neater when using it! I put a teeny bit in the cap I store my glitter in and then shook it over each nail. It was much easier to control how much glitter came out and a lot less messy!
What's on your nails this week?

Now that I am teaching 5th grade, I have been getting a lot of use out of my Word of the Day set. We have Intervention prior to Word Study, so they are straggling into class over the course of a five minute period. This activity is a great opening for our Word Study block each day!
My students record the word each day in their Reader's Notebook as soon as they come back from Intervention. This keeps it from getting too chaotic when they all return. First they write down the word and the definition, then they create their own context sentence.
Once everyone has arrived we read over the word together. I choose a different student for each part (one for the word, one for the definition and one for the context) and many students like to share out their context sentences too. This allows almost everyone to have a chance to participate throughout the week. I have found that by creating their own context sentences they are forming a better understanding of what each word means.
I created a free template that can be used to record these words each day, in case you would rather record them on paper than in a journal.
My Word of the Day set is available for a new low price!
Have a great weekend!
