I'm back....and some of my Thanksgiving products.

So, I haven't posted since July. Ooops!

Life got very busy with teaching summer school then 1 week of planning before normal school started back up. I'm actually teaching kindergarten this year, not 1/2. I'm VERY happy with the way things worked out. My students are great!

I just got through completing my first round of report cards and I'll be meeting with parents this Friday for conferences. My students are very bright so there are only minor things that I'll need to discuss with parents. I have one student who won't even be 5 years old till March and is already reading at a beginning first grade reading level! Our school is fortunate to have an awesome pre-kinder teacher who really makes sure the students are continuously learning as much as they can. If you don't know I'll remind you...these students are NOT native English speakers. Amazing!!

Anyways, enough bragging about how fortunate I am :) It is beginning to get into my favorite season for teac…

I *think* I know what I'm teaching this fall

I had been told a while ago that when I came back to teach this fall I'd either be teaching kindergarten, 1/2 or 3/4. I was told last week that it's very likely that I'll be teaching 1/2 again! I'm excited to be able to narrow down my ideas now. I've been pinning all kinds of things on Pinterest lately!

I taught 1/2 for the 2009-2010 school year with a co-teacher but this time it will be MY class. It was great having a co-teacher then since I had horrible morning all day sickness but I'm glad to have my own classroom again.

In other news...we are moving this week into another apartment! I haven't had much time for TPT creations lately (or much of anything for that matter) but I will hopefully get back to creating soon now that I have a pretty good idea of what I'll be teaching next year. I'll be making things for myself and posting it for the rest of you.

Well, gotta run! Hope to have some exciting posts soon with products and pictures :)


*Freebie* Super Student Poster!

I've been working on my hero theme with the cute graphics from ClipArtopia but I haven't updated here about my products. I figured now would be a great time since I'm offering up my first freebie for the hero theme!

I made up a poster (7.75" x 7.75") to use to showcase students of the week/day. Print on card stock paper, cut out the square, and laminate for durability. You can either attach magnets or velcro then you can stick up a picture of the student of the week/day. I plan on taking a picture of my students in capes to use for various things (this being one of them).

To get this freebie go to my TPT store here or my Teachers Notebook store here. Follow my blog for more updates on my products and more freebies! Let me know if there is anything you would like me to make and I'll see what I can do :)

S.U.P.E.R. Binder Cover

I'm getting excited about my theme for next year (that is if I really am going back to work next fall). I've been planning on having this theme since 2011 when I thought I was going to return to teaching. I found really cute clip art at ClipArtopia and just had to use it!

So far I've only made one item. It's taken me almost 2 whole days working on and off to finish it. My youngest got a bad fever 3 days ago and is either dealing with a cold, teething, hand/foot/mouth disease or a mixture of them. He has not been happy lately so I've been doing my best to keep him comfortable which usually results in him in the Ergo carrier and me bouncing him around. He's worth it ;)

Okay, so for my product. I made a binder cover that can be used on student binders to keep them organized. I may make more sheets to go inside to use with dividers later on. Let me know if you are interested and if so what kinds of sections would you like to see. I made one cover for boys and one f…

Superhero Theme to the Rescue!!

I'm really excited....I just bought some adorable clip art on Etsy from ClipArtopia! Once it arrives I'll be making some superhero products for my classroom this fall and for my teacher stores! You can find the images I'll be using here and here. If there is anything specific you would like me to make then let me know and I'll try and make it for you. Keep following because I plan to have a freebie or two ;)
