Summer & a Sale!!

Hey Friends!
Sorry for not posting more this summer! I am super busy trying to get some vacation in & preparing for my move to 1st grade!  
I have been updating units & making new stuff for my firsties.
So I wanted to make sure that I threw in a summer sale before I go back to school in 16 days!!
 EEkk!! 
I cannot believe that I will be back in the classroom in the blink of an eye!!
Sooooo- I am linking up with my other Kinderland friends to have a summer blast sale!!

The sale will be on SUNDAY, JUNE 30th ONLY! 
So- act fast so that you can grab all the awesomeness at 20% off!

I LOVE new shirts!

Look, look...
My new shirts came in the mail!! 
Yippie!!
They are from teachershirts.com if you want to grab some of your own! I do not work for or get paid to endorse them, I just like their stuff! :)

Also, I posted this little unit:

I am very excited about my very first FIRST GRADE unit.
It has 8 different literacy activities. Remember that I like to keep activities similar so that I am not reteaching everything every time I change to a new theme. I like to keep consistency in my classroom so that my students know EXACTLY what to expect!  

This pack has syllables, sorting sh/wh/ch blends, picture to word matching, labeling, rhyming...plus others! Click on the pic to check it out on TpT!

I won't hate it if you pin it for me! :)

Have a happy Saturday!

Little Help Please...

I am doing my best to juice up my Facebook page & in doing so I added a couple of new tabs.
I added the FREEBIE tab that so many people already have (I know, I'm always late to the party) & I also added a Pinterest tab.
I THINK that I linked up the freebie the right way. It just links to a little All About Me Page. 
Can someone go & check out the page to see if both of the links take you to where they are supposed to???
Please?

In other news...I am doing this today...



I am taking my crazy teens with me & my 3 year old...should be interesting! Gotta love FREE summer bowling! 
Here's hoping I don't break a hip! Haha..I'm not that old, am I??

Bloglovin Switcheroo



Google reader is going Bye-Bye...sad face
PLEASE follow me with Bloglovin & you will not miss a beat! :)
Click the link above & you will be all set! 
See ya there!!

Hi!!

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the lack of posting lately!

I am trying to get some summer vacation in since I only have a 
4 WEEK SUMMER BREAK...AAAHHHHH! 

AND~ I am trying to wrap my head around teaching first grade next year & I am a little OVERWHELMED!!

Anywho, last year (late in the year) I started having my kinders work with writing journals. I made these little writing journals & wrote about them in this post. I did like to use them with my kinders, but I don't think that I could've used them until later in the year when they are able to read independently. 
Soooo, it dawned on me that they would be perfect for first graders that are able to read simple sentences. 
I made a set for August & will make sets for each month. They are in the same format as my math journals because that really works well for my kiddos! 
Anyway~ Here they are...
Click the pic to see them in my store. I am putting them on sale for $1.50 until Friday or until I remember that they are on sale & I put them back at their regular price! :)



All of the prompts are August themed and, as you can see, are short & pretty easy to read. 
Let me know what you think...
Would these be good for first graders??

I'm gonna give some away today.

Another One Done! & I have TONS of Questions!

Yippie! 
Today was my last workday & my summer has officially begun! 


Woo Hoo!!
I spent the whole day moving all my junk stuff into my new FIRST GRADE classroom! 
I am so excited to be looping with my cuties from this year.

Here is the question that I have for you...can anyone point me to some good back to school for FIRST GRADE packets for my new adventure? I was going to make some stuff, but I have no idea of where to even begin. So, I am just going to by some stuff to get me started. Please leave me a comment if you know of some good units/packets/etc that I can check on on TpT or TN to start my year off. Remember that I am in a year-round school so I will be back in there in 4 weeks!! 

Also- should I change my blog name?
What should I change it to?
How do I change it without losing my blog-world friends?
Should I just leave it alone & quit being psycho?

Clipart Challenge!


Several fabulous clipartists and bloggers have come together for an amazing Clipart Challenge hosted by Primary Possibilities!  Each blogger is featuring a clipartist and a product they made using that artist's images!  This is a great way to discover new clipart creators for your summer creations.   So keep reading and following the linky at the bottom to head on to the next post!  You may even pick up some freebies along the way!

I had the EXTREME pleasure of using the clipart from 

I had a very hard time choosing the packet that I would use. She has soooo many cute things there! Click her logo to check her out...don't do it now! 
Wait until the end of the post...geez!

Here is the freebie that I made using her clipart. I just couldn't resist & made 2 freebies for you! 
You can thank me later..ha! 
(I'm feeling a little snarky today)!
This freebie is a picture to word matching game. It includes a recording sheet & would be great for a pocket chart activity.

I know that a lot of you like the math journals, so I made a little baseball themed mini packet! Yay! 

I hope that you enjoy the freebies & that you will pop over to Kady's TpT store & follow her so that you don't miss out on her fabulous creations!! 

Thank you, Kady for letting me use your fantastic clipart!!
