Hodge Podge of Good Stuff


My little ones enjoyed using some of the winter pocket chart activities that I made.. They loved them! And I love that I can hand them a bag and they get excited for a little “pocket chart time” with a friend. A win for both of us!


Here are two girls doing the number word match. I asked how it was.. and they said “It was easy but it took a long time.” They were probably there less than 10 minutes. I hardly think that is a long time!




This is the match the sentence to the picture activity. This was a GREAT activity and I will be making more of these. It made them think, sound out words, and engaged them working with a partner to figure out the matches. It was a success.

You can buy these in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It’s a set of pocket chart/winter centers.

Winter Centers/Pocket Chart Activities

I did not make recording sheets to go with this unit. I didn’t because they are perfect pocket chart activities. Of course, they can be used on a table or on the floor. No need for a pocket chart if you don’t have one.


I want to thank

for awarding me blogging awards.


7 quick things about me:

{1} My birthday is coming up.. January 17th!

{2} The first thing I do when I get home from school each day is put on a pair of pajama pants then pour myself a BIG glass of cold, ice tea!

{3} I love glitter.

{4} I have been married 10 1/2 years. It feels like about 2 years.

{5} I own a stationery business- Doodle Bugs Paper - that I started in 2003. Believe it or not I consider it my first job and teaching is my second job. I spend way more hours processing stationery than working on school work.

{6} I love cold pizza for breakfast.

{7} I love animals.

{8} My office is painted pink.
