Freebie #2

Dear Bloggy Friends,

      I am sad to report that I cannot give you the activity I had planned to post today.  When I returned home  from a Social Studies Standards workshop, I found that my external hard drive was empty.  This is where I keep all my clip art, items I made, videos I make and find, etc. While trying to figure out how to recover the files myself, the electricity went off because it is storming like crazy here!  I am going to the computer man tomorrow to see if he can help me!
        Anyway, this is one of the only things that I have not shared that was saved on my actual computer.  I had not planned on sharing this in Blogland because I specifically made it for my school, which is a Kids at Hope School.  We believe that all kids are capable of success!  We want to get them to thinking about how they can be successful adults in 4 specific areas of life (Career and Education, Home and Family, Community and Service, & Hobbies and Recreation).  I created this little book so students can write their future.  I can see this being used when discussing meeting needs and relationships too.
        With all that said, there will actually be 5 freebies (hopefully), since I kind of threw this one in here!  Click the pic to download the "My Future" Book.


  1. Sorry you lost your work. I hope you can have it recovered.

  2. OMG!!! I am so sorry!!! I know that sick feeling. I hope that the fix it man can fix it...

  3. I hope you get all your work back!!! I have had 2 flash drives go corrupt on me in a year! Needless to say, I now store things on my external hard drive (why I didn't before was beyond me) and on AND I have a back up thingy (for lack of better word) that I got at Walmart that is a battery back up for when the electricity goes out!

  5. Oh I am so sorry that happened! I have had rough luck with laptops this last year. I am working on a laptop that only partially works and you adjust to the quirks.

    I am so sorry to hear that! I will think positive thoughts that all is not lost!


  7. I'm so sorry to hear that you can't find your files. I think I would cry. I hope you're able to get them back.

  8. No way! I'm so sorry! I'd probably have a meltdown. I hope they are able to recover all your files.

  9. Oh Jena... I'm so sorry about your files. That is super stressful. Wish there was something we could do to help.
