Sign Out Sheet Freebie

I am off to Hawaii for my friend's wedding!  I'm excited and very grateful that not only did she invited us to her wedding, but also has asked us to be part of her bridal party.  I can't wait to be one of her bridesmaids!   
I have posted my sign-out sheet that I use for dismissal, as a thank you for being a follower of my blog!  Please click here to download the file.  Enjoy!;)

Monster Themed Decor

So, I made a new friend in my grade level and she has been extremely helpful, that I had to thank her by making her a few things that she could use in her classroom.  This year, I don't know why, but I seem to have a very tough and I mean tough group of kids....and all I can say is that she has been a true 'lifesaver!'  

Anywhooo, she saw my owl ten frame number posters in my room and wanted a copy so I thought why not make her some that would match her classroom theme 'Monsters.'  So, I got inspired and made the number posters and a few other things that she could use in her classroom.  Here is a sneak peek of what I made.
I gave her the files today as a 'BIG' thank you and it made me very happy that she really liked it all.  I just love making things for my friends.  If you have a monster theme in your classroom, these would make a great addition to your theme.  I have posted both of them in my TpT store and will continue to add more to the 'Monster Themed Classroom Decor.'  Have a great weekend everyone!;)

Snack Calendars

During my time off from school, I've been trying to complete a few things that I use in my classroom.  One of those are my snack calendars!  

Every year my students will ask for an afternoon snack, especially since our morning goes by so fast with having specials and lunch so early in the day.  Our afternoon, tends to be 'suuuppppper' long and my poor kiddos need at least a quick snack to munch on.  So, each month I send out a snack parent letter and attach a snack calendar with it.  
I assign a day for each one of my students, so that they all have a turn to contribute and share a snack with their classmates.  My kiddos enjoy knowing when it is their turn to bring their snack and look forward to hearing the "thank you's" from all of his/her classmates.  They get to eat their snack before they get to play on the playground, during our afternoon recess.
I have finally finished creating my snack calendars!  It is an editable powerpoint file and which will allow you to change the top title where it says 'Our Snack Calendar 2013' and also type inside the boxes.  I also created them in color and black and white.  I personally like to use the black and white and print it off on colored paper to save on ink.  

I have posted it in my  in my TpT store if you are interested in using them.

Name Activities

Wow...time does fly by very quickly.  Well I'm here to show you a few things that we did during the beginning of school.   As it turns out, I'm in track we get to be in school for 3 weeks and then on break for 3 weeks.  So as of now, I am currently on track break.  We did a lot of name activities so that we could get to learn each others names.
