Wow...




Oh my goodness!  I can't believe I haven't posted in a long time!  I was doing so good!  We have been super busy at my house!  Baseball season is over now!  Thank goodness... I love watching my son play but 3 nights a week at the ball field was enough to make me crazy!  The 2 year old thought is was a blast to run around like a maniac.....  It was exhausting!

We had a great Halloween my little princess and rotting zombie got lots of candy!  We had a rotation at school with my great teammates!  Here is a little sample of what we did!  I read the book Spookley the Square Pumpkin and then we drew pictures of Spookley pumpkin patch while listening to Halloween songs! There was bingo, mummy making and goo making!  It was a great day and I didn't have to work on Halloween..... even better!  (Teacher Workday!)

Now we are working on some great Turkey in disguise... Love this project and will share some of the creative ideas so far!  If you are looking for a little book check out my Turkey by the on TpT!
Or my Freebie from my blog a few years ago! (click on picture on top of post)


Turkey by the

I am sitting here trying to breathe but baby #3 is not cooperating!  Yep... that is mostly the reason I haven't been blogging just to exhausted!  This baby was a complete surprise... a good one but a surprise!  She will be arriving on Feb 2nd!  And we have no ideas on names......  The big question is do we use another K name or not?!  We have Kaden and Kinsley.... any suggestions?

Have a wonderful week!

Classroom Sneak Peak!

Hey Everyone!  I survived the first week of school!  If you teach K and have staggered start it is like having a week of first days!  I already love my class because they are getting the routines and procedures quickly!  Yeah!  We will see Monday after a long weekend if they remember!?!  Let's hope so!

I have almost finished the room but plan to put a few more things up!

This is the front of my room!  I have my letterland characters above the bulletin board!  And my screen for my projector!  I did all my boards in black and white... love it!  I have my rules, calendar and have to add the months and days of the week!  The dinosaur chair is for my calendar helper to sit it!




Another view of the front of the room!  I am lucky to have 5 computers and a document camera in one corner! I can't wait to get my new seat sacks in black and plan to add a ribbon to them for the table colors!
I put pom pom onto my bulletin board because I can't hang anything from the ceiling! (so jealous of those who can!)


Here is the door to outside!  It is also the teacher area!  My assistant and I don't have desks just use tables for our work areas!  I have guided reading at the rainbow table and all my supplies behind my table!  The old tv is used for school information and a digital clock displays on it all day!  It keeps the school on the same time!  I painted my window last year and just left it up and will change it later for fall!

Here is another view of my table!  The posters are chalked nursery rhymes that a colleague helped me make when I started teaching!  They are super adorable!  You can also see my clip chart chevron style!  


My writing center is one large table!  The posters are my new black and white color words!   The bookcase has puzzles and games!





I hope you enjoy this little sneak peak of my home away from home!  Keep tuned in for more reveals as it is a work in progress!  Have a wonderful long weekend!  Yeah!

Happy Anniversary to my sweet husband! I love you!






 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS...

I love polka dots!  I love the hang out with my kids and going  to Starbucks! Reading is one of my most favorite things and I read all the time! I love shopping at Target, Chico's and wherever else I can go without children hanging all over me!  Hehe!


 IF YOU WEREN'T A TEACHER, WHAT WOULD YOU WANT TO BE?
I wanted to be a child Psychologist!  I may someday go back to school to do this!


THREE LITTLE WORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOU.
Quiet. Funny. Loyal  

 
FINISH THE SENTENCE, "________,  SAID NO TEACHER EVER!!"

"I'd really love to go to a meeting!...said no teacher EVER!!"

Ha!  My principal now is not into meeting all the time like other principals!  Thank goodness....  it drives me crazy to have meetings all the time!
 

Q: IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY AND YOU CAN INVITE ANYONE {DEAD OR ALIVE} TO THE PARTY. WHO ARE YOU INVITING?

I would invite... Mark Wahlberg, Robin Williams, and Betty White!!

Q: IF SOMEONE WROTE A BOOK ABOUT YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD BE THE TITLE?

 The Tales of Super Barbie!  Just kidding! I have no idea but with my name I might as well use it!   


 Q:YOU GET TO PICK ONE SUPERPOWER. WHAT IS IT?
 
I would have flying power because it would be fun to get there fast!

Q: IF YOU HAD TO SING ONE SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

 "Jesus, Take the Wheel or Before He Cheats!" - Carrie Underwood 

 
 Q: ARE YOU A MORNING PERSON OR A NIGHT OWL?

I was a major night owl until my oldest came along!  He was an early riser when he was young!  Like 6 am every morning!  Yikes.. but I love to stay up late and sleep in but that rarely happens now!
 
Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE RESOURCE THAT YOU'VE CREATED IN YOUR TPT SHOP?

 I really love my Beach Decor... I was going for a beach theme and changed my mind but it is adorable!
Beach Alphabet Line

I also have a Number line and Daily Schedule!
My other favorite is the word wall words!  They have been so useful in my own room at writing center and helps give kids confidence!
Fall Back to School Word Wall Bundle

or you can buy them individually!  

Q: SHARE SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU! 
I have curly hair and I like it!  I never straighten it because it takes to much time!  I would rather sleep a little longer!!
