Sweet Summertime

Hey Y'all.  I don't know where the time goes, but it flies.  It has been soooo long since I have had a chance to write.  I've been so busy trying to restructure my classroom and figure out the best teaching practices!  I have been blog stalking like no other!  There are so many wonderful ideas out there and I can't keep them all straight.  So between blog stalking, writing ideas down, and spending time with my little tot, I have neglected writing an actual post.  I leave you now as I go back to blog stalking and writing down more ideas.  Have a wonderful summer teaching friends!  I know I will spend some time enjoying mine and just relaxing and soaking up the sun!

Literacy Workstations...

So I have been gone for quite some time now.  Time just flies by and I stalk read all of the blogs, but never get a chance to write my own.  In the meantime I have been really working hard to plan for next year!  This year is almost over and I cannot believe in no time at all that my sweet little kiddos will be moving on.  So for now I'm thinking of a ton of ways to rework my curriculum and time.  How do we fit it all in?  I have been reading up on Literacy Work Stations by Debbie Diller. I am hoping that will give me some inspiration.  I am planning on getting Deedee Wills set of I can cards from TpT.  You can find them here: Literacy Stations I Can Task Cards.  If anyone has any suggestions I would love them! Just leave a comment!

Oh my! Where does the time go?! This is so random!

Hello friends! It has been a crazy month! My little tot turned 2 so I was busy planning a birthday party! Time just flies! I cannot believe she is 2! On a side note, things at school have been crazy!  Last week we had Catholic Schools Week.  We had a ton of fun, but most of our days are fun and we don't have much instruction time.  It is finally February and we are going to be learning a TON about the USA! And also the presidents.  We will do a cute little book made up of crafts from TLC.  Those are just the best! Our centers will be Valentine Centers.  I'm sorry I have been MIA.  If you haven't seen Michelle Oakes' Valentine centers or her morning menus, you are missing out!  Friends, this is just the best stuff ever! I have been doing so much blog stalking and hunting for new things that I forgot to blog! Ooops! Sorry so random! I will try to update soon with pictures of our USA book! Have a wonderful month!

The end of PJ days

First of all, sorry I've been MIA from the blogging world.  It looks like some fabulous things went down while I took some time off!  Well this is it.  The last of my pj days.  Me and my little tot have been spending Christmas break with our pjs.  But after today, no more!  Tomorrow will start our regular routine for the weekend.  Get up go shopping, run errands, etc.  The most important thing is that I have to start preparing for the upcoming school week. We were lucky to have some extra time off, but this break still went way to fast.  I spent way to much time relaxing and thinking about school and not enough time preparing.  So when I get back my kiddos will be doing some Kim Adsit inspired center ideas!  We will be moving from choosing our work to the "have to's" and the "can do's".  I will be making some cute signs and reworking my classroom and my lesson plans!  Stay tuned for an update of how it goes! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break! Good luck back at school!

Look Y'all!

Hey y'all! Look at me! I did it! I posted my first game on TpT! I hope you enjoy it and it is FREE! I've been so super nervous about posting things because everything is just so wonderful! Please let me know what you think! I really appreciate it! Click on the link and it will take you right to my store! Have fun at TpT I know I always spend way too much money when I get on that site! Have a great night!

Time flies...

Oh. My. Word. Time has just flown by... one minute I'm eating turkey, shopping like a fool, and the next we are back in school and it is a nonstop whirlwind of business! So as promised earlier I am posting pictures of my little turkies and pilgrims from FOR-EV-ER ago. Also, with the time going so fast I am thankful for this unit we have been doing all week. I absolutely love it. It is challenge and also a good review for my kiddos. Thanks Julie Lee for making and selling on tpt! Have a great week!
