Back to School TpT Sale!

I am a slug.  I didn't blog the whole summer.  I worked on developing new materials, played with the kids, took a little vacation, and hung out, but never once posted.  I have so much I want to share!  We have been in school 2 weeks now and I have had a chance to try some new management ideas that I will be sharing with you.  It has been my smoothest start to a year yet!  I am so excited for this year.  

For now, join me in shopping for great teaching materials at TpT's Back to School Sale.  I will have my store 20% off as well as hundreds of other sellers.

So, let's go shopping!

Flowers for Mom - Mother's Day Card, Coupons, Poems, and Craft

Mother's Day is just a week away and what better way to help your students celebrate their mom, aunt, or grandma than by giving them flowers and love notes.

My student's moms have been so happy to get this child-made flower bouquet filled with flower shaped coupons and a special card made just for them.  The download includes all patterns, coupons, poems, and cards for Mom, Aunt, or Grandma as well as pictures of completed project.

Your student's will enjoy writing what is special about their Mom, Aunt, or Grandma in the card they personalize and making "flowers" with special coupon or note tokens of love!

Read Every Day Challenge Chart


Are you looking for a way to motivate your students to end the year strong as avid readers?

Last year, I made this chart to track my students daily reading and encourage them to read 100 books.  For my kiddos reading larger books, they could count every 20 minutes they read as a book.  It worked like a charm last year and the kids stay motivated and as a class we earned an ice cream party when we got to 100 books.  I also gave individual prizes for the most books read.  

 One of my teaching buddy wanted to encourage her students to read 1000 pages, so I made that option also.  Her second grade class read over 10,000 pages!  They were on fire!

Click on the picture to download your free chart and tracking sheets.  I hope your class loves it too.

How do you encourage your students to read?

Have fun teaching,

You're One of My Favorite Peeps



I was browsing through Pinterest this week and was overcome with all of the cute, cute "Peeps" ideas.  I never knew Peeps were so versatile.  Here are some of my favorite pics:



I was looking for a nice little Easter gift for my kid's teachers and here is my humble adaptation of a Peeps gift.
























If you would like a copy of the labels I made they are FREE.  Just click below:

Spring Flowers and Poetry Go Together

I just wanted to share our spring flowers bulletin board from last year.  We wrote poems on tulip-shaped paper and I just loved this bulletin board.  This year I made a writing packet that includes the tulip writing paper.  I wrote about it in a post a few days ago.  If you would like to see that post and the packet you can see it HERE.

Are you enjoying Spring?  I start spring break at 1:00 pm today!
