Is it really Friday? These weeks are flying by so fast I cannot keep up! This is my last week of summer vacation. I start back next Thursday and students start back on Monday, August 11th. So, so sad! Summer vacation has gone by waaaaaay too fast!

My blog got a long needed makeover this week. It was so hard for me to let someone else take over the design and do it. But, it looks 10x better than what I could have EVER pulled off. And, Tenille {the designer} was so very patient with my detailed visions. I knew what I wanted and she made everything look great!

I have spent a lot of time in my classroom this week getting ready for next week. I have been cleaning like crazy! I wish I could report that I threw away a bunch of junk… but, I still have way too much stuff to ever use! I did throw away some- and I cleaned and organized everything. It’s amazing how unorganized everything is at the end of each school year.

I also helped rescue this little girl this week. We think she got attacked by two stray dogs so we scooped her up and she has been living the good life at my parent’s house. She is currently at the vet right now getting checked out. Her name is Biscuit.. look at those sweet eyes!

Back to School Clip Cards

I am just tickled to death to share my newest product with you..

Back to School Clip Cards

These are perfect for beginning of the year first graders- but would work great for kindergarten kiddos later in the year.

It features 12 sets of clip cards that are SUPER easy to prepare, store, and implement in your classroom.

They are great for centers, stations and especially early finishers.

There are two sets of alphabet cards.PicMonkey Collage2

There is a set of beginning sounds and also a set of ending sounds cards.

PicMonkey Collage3

Two sets of number cards. What number comes next? and What number comes before? Both sets of cards use the numbers 0-30.

PicMonkey Collage4

There are three sets of number word cards.

And, there are three sets of color word cards.

These fit perfect in a school box. Put the cards and clips in a box- and you are ready to go. Have your students put the cards back in the box when they are finished with their name for you to do a quick and easy check.

On Wednesday, Laura from Peace, Love and First Grade and I met up for lunch. We had a fabulous time.  She is definitely a friend to keep when she shows up for lunch with smelly markers {Mr. Sketch} as a gift!
