2016-2017 School Year!!

It has been A LONG TIME since I have posted on this blog!!  Our school has added a new spelling component to our curriculum.  It is Spelling Connections by Zaner-Bloser.  Since I am making all new activities to go with it for my daily 5 rotations I figured I would also put them on TPT for any other teachers who are using this and need some extra support for their kiddos also.  It will follow the same printer, kid, wallet, and teacher friendly versions my other activities did since so many of you liked the ease of use.  I hope to have them all up soon.  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and God bless as you get ready for the new school year!

Is it wrong that we just got out of school and I am already getting ready for the new year???   I just can't help it!!  I have seen so many new cute ideas that I can't wait to try for the 2012-2013 school year!!
I have made 2 more activities and posted them on TPT.  One is for Harcourt Storytown- stamp and write focus words, and the other is Insect Comparison -for your insect science unit.  My kiddos loved reading and then coloring and comparing the insects.  I hope you find them useful in your classroom also!
My focus now is for the first 20 days of school.  We follow the Harcourt Storytown series.  I am in the process of finishing up my "First 20 Days" unit.  If your school uses Harcourt Storytown keep checking back!  I hope to have it done soon!!

It has been a long time since my last post--9 months to be exact.  I am happy to say I am back in the game and ready to post new ideas, pictures, worksheets and I even have an item on TPT that goes with our Harcourt Storytown series.  I  must say a HUGE thank you to Melissa McMurray for helping me navagate the TPT site.  
My father passed away in August VERY unexpectantly.  If it was not for my great Family, Faith and wonderful Friends I am not sure how I would have made it through it all.   I am happy to be back on my computer and making different activities that will help my kiddos in daily activities.

Animal Group Books

Here are some of the books that I used with the kids when we made the Animal Group Book.  They loved making the book and learned a lot!  It is always good when they have fun and don't even realize how much they are learning=)

Animal Group Book

Here is a book I made for my kids when study animal groups.  Just click and enjoy!

New School Year!

It is hard to believe I am already getting my room together for another school year!  I always love to change things around and make my room inviting to all my new students.  Here is how I have changed my library.  I have added stuffed animals that the kids can read with also.  To help the kids put books back where they got them, I have painted large craft sticks in different colors so that they can hold the place they got a book from. The kids love the leappads and I get them from the thrift store or parents donate them to my classroom at the end of the year.
