Preschool Teacher

I am part of a giveaway at Cachey Mama's Classroom!  She has 100 followers and is celebrating!  Life is really crazy here!!!  We are getting new carpet upstairs and had to move all the furniture downstairs!  Ugghhh!!!  It is driving me crazy!  But the good news is that new carpet will be in tomorrow and I can start to put my whole house back together!  We had a half day of school and I am exhausted!    I will be uploading a February Word Wall later this week to TpT!  

I hope everyone really enjoys their Holiday Break!

Christmas Tree numbers 1-10

viewer (3)
I had an email to make the Trees in lower numbers for those kids who need more practice!  I was happy to make something to help those little sweeties!  We all have those kids who need extra help! 
Up next week Christmas theme, Polar Express party and finishing my shopping!!!!! Oh…my! 
The secret elf has been visiting kindergarten classes to hand out small treats for those kids who have been working hard and showing their best behavior!  Click here for my letter I send home!  I got this idea from a colleague… it works wonders and makes me laugh!  I enjoy giving to those who are always good and the kids always take it so seriously!  They imagine the elf running through the room and will swear they have seen him! 
My other addiction PINTEREST!  Oh my goodness I am obsessed!  Anyways here are a few of my favorite pins!
Merry Christmas Banner printable!  Lots of printable at this site!

New websites I just found!

I love it when I can find sites that make my life easier!  What are your favorite sites??
I found a great one for coloring pages and words.  It lets you change the font and leaves a space for you to type your own sentence.  Another plus is the cute pictures to color. 
I just started looking at the site this afternoon. It has some super craft ideas!!  I will be pinning them on pinterest when I get home. 
All Kids Network
Here are a few I pinned when I got home!  Just easy and cute!
paper pumpkin craft
Light up tree with tissue paper!  This would look great in the window and they have a template to print!

Alright... Let's share some of your favorite sites. I always love to get new ideas!!  I only have one more day left for Thanksgiving Break!  We are finishing art projects galore!  I can make it!!!

Duh moment !

5 Little Turkeys

I had a duh moment yesterday at school!! We were singing some Harry Kindergarten songs and I realized the poem I made into a book was what we were singing!  Yep… I had completely forgotten about this!  DUH…. really!  Please tell me I am not the only one who does this?!!  Anyways here are a few other class favorites to sing!

They were the Pilgrims!

Turkey time is super fun but be prepared for them gobbling around the room at some point!  It’s funny to watch the random gobbles!  Ha!

Just a beautiful video to honor all that have served our country!Happy Veteran’s Day!!

Writing and Halloween Pinterest!!

I love these little writing activities for my sweeties!  Easy enough for the lower groups and the higher kids turn them over and write more!  They think they are so cool walking around with a clipboard!  I love it!  This next week we are learning about spiders and owls! 
Pinterest has some great ideas!!  I want to make the balloon spiders and I usually make a hand spider with the kids!  Fun times!halloween spider balloons easy crafts
I like how these look but will just use streamers for the legs… cute for halloween I really like how the black buttons look on this!  Hmmm… I wish I had time to make this little cutie!  I may have to settle for paint and plan for next year!!

Wow…. I feel like I haven’t been on my poor blog in forever!!  It has been busy here with school and baseball games/practices!!  I am getting caught up at school and my life!  Ha!  Well, I hope everyone is doing great! 

A friend sent me this website for math and it has common core games and printables!! (Thanks Rita!!)


I forgot to add this on my last post for fire safety!  Harry Kindergarten does a great job with some fun ways to learn!

fire safety!

This alphabet sounds goes quickly but it is so good for the kids to learn how to say them fast!  You will have to play it a couple of times before they will start singing!

Busy… Busy…. Busy!  I feel like a crazy person juggling getting all my school list complete… some home stuff… and baseball practice and games for my son!  Okay so some things have suffered like my blog and Laundry!  Can someone please invent a closet or machine that does my laundry and put it away!  Wouldn’t that be awesome??  Okay, I made this for fire safety the week of October 9th!  We have the fire trucks come for a safety talk and it is great!

Here are a few sites that we also check out!!
