February: Shouting Out & Showing Off

I just love fun linky parties!  Here's the first order of business today...

Time for some shout out love!  :)  There are so many great bloggers to choose from (both with more and less followers than me) that this was a real toughie.  

Sooooo I'm going to start with Sara at Teaching Munchkins, who has less followers than me.  I just love all her great ideas and the cute pictures she posts of all her fun activities!  I love her ideas on arctic animals... doesn't that sensory table look like a blast?

And I really hope she finishes these adorable teddy bear Valentine's activities soon, I love teddy bears!  :)

My next inspiration is from a blogger who has more followers than me.  This month I want to share about the lovely blogger Faith from Kindergarten Faith.  Faith is such an inspiring blogger and you should go check her out now!  :)  She also comes up with the most creative ideas, such as this post on teaching time with shoes!  Who would have thought?

And I absolutely ADORED her Tacky the Penguin ideas, check that one out here!

And now for what I bought on the Super Bowl Sunday!  

Needless to say, it was probably TOO MUCH.  But oh well, I am super excited and can't wait to share with you some of my fabulous and fun purchases!

Yes, that's right, I FINALLY bought it and I'm so glad I did!  Seriously I got this great license for a steal of a deal on Sunday.  What did you get?  (Not that I need to go spending any more money!!!)

And while you're here, don't forget to enter my friend Nicki's giveaway!  I will be contributing one item of your choice from my Teachers Pay Teachers store and there are other great prizes too, hop on over and check it out by clicking on the picture!  

Hope everyone's having a good week!  I'm off to write sub plans because I have jury duty tomorrow!

    1. Thanks so much for coming by and following! I promise you I am having them use scissors and glue a lot so hopefully it won't be an issue when they move onto Kindergarten! :)

  4. Thanks sooooo much Jessica!! I love that we all get to share our wonderful ideas!! It is great because what works with one group of kids may not work the next year's group, and I have learned so many cool and exciting ways to teach the same thing!! :o) Yeah!!

There's No Place Like Space: Outer Space Adventures & Friday Freebie

TGIF!!!  What a week!  I absolutely adored seeing my kiddos learn about space, but this week was a toughie.  Sick and tired kiddos do not make for a happy class.  Everything kept going the wrong way: food spilled on the newly cleaned carpets, bloody noses on the newly cleaned carpets, bathroom accidents during the middle of centers, pink-eye working its' way around the room, forgotten materials at home, the printer at FedEx Office went haywire and messed up my play-doh mats, the copy machine at work broke, I broke the side mirror of my car coming out of the garage... Yikes!  I was seriously scared to leave my house this morning!  :)  So here's hoping the stars re-align this weekend and my class comes back rockin' and rollin' and ready to learn on Monday!

With all that being said, it was still a fun and jam-packed week.  I loved overhearing one of my kiddos tell his parent, "Mom, did you know the sun is ACTUALLY a star?!?!"  And I got to test out another new …

Holiday Customs & Belated Friday Freebies

Saturday is here and Christmas Break has begun!  Well, in my case it's a 4 day weekend, but I'll take it.  I confess I am very jealous of my peers right now that get a two week break.  But I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a good break, and I can't wait to see the exciting stuff you create!  :)

What a busy week it has been!  Between practicing for the Holiday Song Program, doing the Holiday Song Program, recovering from the Holiday Song Program, I'm not sure how we accomplished anything at all!  But accomplish we did, and largely thanks to you, my wonderful fellow blogger teachers!  I am so thankful for the great resources you make and share, they were a lifesaver this week for sure!  Here's a look at our week of Holiday Customs Around the World:

Snowflake Craft Stick Ornaments (Parent Gift)

These turned out so great!  I poured some craft (tacky) glue a bowl and they used Q-tips to place glue onto their gemstones.  Then, they put the gemstones onto t…

Families & Freebies on a Friday... err... Monday!

Happy Friday!  Er, Monday?  Well, originally I was going to post this on Friday but I had no time (big surprise, right?) so here it is on Monday!  Here's a peek at our fun Families unit from last week, with a few freebies for my bloggy family!  :)

George Washington Color by Number
Many thanks to Maria at Kinder-Craze for this great freebie!  On Tuesday we learned a little bit about what a President does and why we celebrate President's Day.  Pick up Maria's great freebie at her blog by clicking here.
Paper Bag Houses
Love how these houses turned out!  
Family Trees
Some of my kiddos were even able to write most of the names on their family tree!
Magazine Family Hunt
Are you ready for your first freebie?  Click on the picture to grab your own copy of this fun family magazine picture hunt!  The kiddos cut out pictures of people in magazines and placed them in the category they thought fit: mommies/daddies, grandmas/grandpas, brothers/sisters, and pets.
