Letters to...

At the beginning of school, I love to have my kids write letters to their former teacher. I display these in the hall and later give them to the teacher they wrote to.

Last year I had so many sweet letters to give. One of them said to write back if they read the letters. (The teacher said she was lucky she stopped to read them! :))

I just posted these units to TPT! I have activities for first-fourth grade. Fifth grade will be added soon!

Stop by my store to check them out!

I will post pics of my new class' letters when we go back to school in August!

Hope you all are having a GREAT summer!

Donors Choose!!

I just had to share that I received my first donation on my Donors Choose project! I am so excited an feel so blessed at this moment!!! Tpt is going well and now this... :)

My project is asking for Scholastic News subscriptions for my classroom. I will be so excited when this (hopefully) is funded! After reading Amy Lemons describe how she uses weekly readers in her classroom, I knew I wanted to incorporate that in my classroom! Here's the link! Check it out!

A little catchup!!

Hey everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA lately! My kiddos have kept me busy!!!!

I just wanted to share my latest classroom work with you!

Last year my grade level had an AWFUL time keeping our kiddos from arguing, tattling, you know...

Well this year we are incorporating character in our lessons! My classroom will revolve around the Golden Rule. I was SO surprised last year when most of my kids didn't know it! :(

So tonight I set to work on my room a little. It's still techie headquarters and a mess, but they aren't around my door so I can cutesy it up! ;)

Well, until next time!

Letters to My Future Teacher! An end of year writing activity.

Hey everyone!

I just posted my end of year writing activity to TPT!

It's a pack that includes a Bulletin Board Header and lots of different writing papers. These papers include areas to draw in (or not) and some of them include the greeting and closing filled in.

I wish I had pictures to show you, but I didn't really get into my blog until school was already out. :(

Next year though, I promise!

Please go check it out and let me know what you think!
