Personalized Stickers {Giveaway}




I am having internet problems {again!} .. it’s killing me because I have so much to share but have to work out these little quirky issues first.

In the meantime- let’s have a fun little giveaway.

I own a business called Doodle Bugs Paper and one of my best selling products are stickers. They are great for teachers to put inside of books or on personal property. I know how easily things can be borrowed and never returned.

These are not available on my website because I did not purchase a license to resell this adorable clipart- but why not share the love with some giveaways! These adorable little guys can be bought at Lettering Delights

I am giving away 4 sets of these funky little animal stickers.

Kendra who said

I am now following your blog =] Great blog for a student teacher =]

Contact me Kendra!

I spent most of last night cutting out laminating stuff.. and catching up on Big Brother and America’s Got Talent..  Here are some things I worked on.. I do not have these to share because they were made before I started this blog and I did not save them.. I just thought I would post the pictures and let you see them.



This is an owl math fact match game- I will more than likely use this in a pocket chart but it can easily be done on the floor or at a table.


Matching number words to numbers. These cloud shapes took FOREVER to cut out!


Matching a sentence to a picture. Will probably do these together to model but then they will be put in a pocket chart basket for my students to do independently. Great color word activity!


Superhero Counting- This is a center activity I do pretty frequently. The students count the objects and record their answers. I like it because I can have them count by 1’s, 5’s, 10’s, 2’s.. whatever we need extra practice on at that time.


Math fact center activity. They will record their answers on a recording sheet.

Ice Cream Days of the Week- Free Download



Ever since I posted this post.. I have had lots of email asking if I would share or sell them.

They were a center activity I made last year {or the year before} and I did not have it saved.. and I HATE creating something over .. so I thought it would just be more fun to do a new set.

So now we have ice cream days of the week cards…


I will be using these as a center activity. My students will pick a card and write the answer on a recording sheet.

If you are interested.. you can down load them below:

Baby Steps



I have been working in my classroom this week- just like so many of you! It’s such a BIG job .. but at least I enjoy the time I spend organizing, cleaning and getting it looking nice for a new school year!

One big project that had to be done this summer was cleaning out and organizing this big metal storage cabinet I have. My classroom is so small compared to some of the ones I see on other teacher’s blogs. Storage is a HUGE issue with me. I have way too much STUFF and no where to put it!

So, I took everything out of this cabinet and and started fresh with clear boxes and labels. I didn’t take the time to make cute labels-just plain white handwritten with a sharpie marker!


I have a few fun free downloads to share in the next few days.

Also, my personalized portfolio giveaway ends tomorrow!
