It was Pete week this week in our classroom. We did not get 1/2 of the things done I had planned so Pete will be back next week for Pete Week Part II. But, it’s all Cool! We all LOVE this cool, blue cat!

I finished up my newest unit.. a Back to School Pack this is perfect for those crazy first days {or weeks!}


It has two craft projects- the bees above and the super easy pencil below. All the patterns are included.


It also has flash cards for counting and the alphabet. Counting by 1’s to 100, Counting by 5”s and Counting by 10’s. Ink friendly – looks great on colored cardstock.


There are lots of printables and other fun stuff included..

I got questioned last week about Biscuit. It was the first time she had not made an appearance on my Five for Friday since we rescued her. For all of you following Biscuit’s journey she is doing great and adjusting fine. She went from being homeless, hurt by stray dogs to living the good life. She is pretty much healed up fine and back to normal. How could you not love her?

It’s always fun to come home to a surprise in the mailbox. One of my long time stationery customers  sent me this book in the mail with the sweetest back to school note. She is a former kindergarten teacher and she saw my last post that said Pete was coming .. and she mailed me this new book. And, it is one I didn’t have. I was really excited to add it to my collection.

Week Overview

Today is the last day of Blog Hoppin Teacher Week. Sadly.. I could not pull off a post all week. Back to School has kicked my tail again this week along with a few other obligations. But, I have been reading the link up post each night before going to bed. It is definitely worth checking out!

I would absolutely LOVE for you to post your five for friday post and link up below. Remember to grab the button above and link back to this post.

Happy Weekend friends!
