Hello Blog, Long Time No See!

Hello Everyone!
WOW! I can't believe its been nearly 2 months since my last post. The end of the year got really crazy in so many ways that it made it so hard to post. However, this summer it is my goal to make posting more of a routine (along with working out but we'll have to see what happens with that one! LOL) Along with posting more regularly, I have been posting some things to TPT, back to school stuff of course! It is so great to read on all of your blogs that so many teachers leave school for summer break (I emphasize break because we know that we should be resting and relaxing but are definitely not) and can think of very little but getting back into the classroom and preparing for next year. I think that I start to think about how I can make large improvements/changes to my room and routines a few weeks before the school year ends. It's so exciting! 

Here are a few of the items that I have posted in my TPT store. I am definitely full of ideas and will be adding more soon. I hope that you'll take a look. :) 


This is a cute game that I created to help students with identifying uppercase and lowercase letters and letter sounds. We do a lot of fun apple activities at the beginning of the year so I also tried to integrate some science concepts into the activity by using red, yellow and green apples (uppercase letters on red apples, lowercase letters on green apples, and alphabet clip art on yellow apples). While setting up a game or activity I love to use that time to review concepts and get an idea for what students have learned through conversation. 


This is another apple-themed game that I posted to TPT. I  love nursery rhymes and I also love integrating songs, poetry, music etc. into the activities that I do in my classroom. This activity blends together the nursery rhyme a-tisket, a-tasket along with letter name and sound identification. I am really excited to introduce this game to my students! 


The last item that I posted to TPT was a math write the room for the beginning of the year. This activity emphasizes counting and number identification and is a great math write the room for the beginning of the year. My students really enjoyed this activity and I am looking forward to introducing it earlier on this year. 

If you click on any of the items above it will take you straight to my TPT store. :) 

I also updated my number books so if you purchased this item be sure to re-download! 

In addition to posting about new items in my TPT store, I am also going to post some pictures of the work that we completed in the classroom at the end of last year. I did take pictures with the full intention of posting them on my blog but as I mentioned, things got crazy busy and it just didn't happen.   I will be busy posting this summer though so keep checking back! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
