Kindergarten has changed so much in the years I have taught! It amazes me how much more they learn and grow! I have always done a part of my room where I put their names up for some skills! I made these posters for my skills wall. They include I can tie my shoes, I know 100 sight words, I can count to 100 and Happy Birthday with all the months! I made these with the polka dot labels from Karen Cox. Click here to go to her TpT store for this fab freebie! I hope everyone has a great week! I have all my students tomorrow after our staggered start days! I know I will be exhausted! They wear me out the first week or two of school! Enjoy!

My sweet boy was so huggy today and I loved it!

These are my newly made center signs for my classroom! I have put stars on them so the kiddos can tell how many kids can go in that center! It makes it so easy for them to count the stars and then count the kids! I do not tell them what Free Center to go to but let them choose! It is quite scary some years and have to redirect some sweeties to new center that is quiet! We have only 30 minutes for free play and it is at the end of the day! It is sad that we do not have more time in our day to just relax and play!
Don’t forget to enter Frog in First and Really Roper giveaway!! Three people will win!
I have also uploaded some new things to my TpT store!! I have made several different Daily Schedule cards to match all of your cool themes! I have uploaded these themes so far:
I have several more to upload tonight! I hope you are having a restful weekend!

So, today is my birthday and it was just another boring day until I read this email from Vera Bradley! The 100 handbag is $29 dollars today only!! WOOT WOOT!!!! I LOVE her purses and had about worn out my last one! I called around some local stores and they had the bags… off I go to buy me a birthday gift! AWESOME! I got the last Mocha Rouge! I LOVE IT!! So excited and to save money too! Can’t Beat that! Then I had to buy a wallet and lanyard! Okay I went a little crazy! I have always used the wristlets but my Droid does not fit.. boo hoo….. so I got the turn lock wallet! It also has a zippered part and my phone fit in it for those quick trips!
Check back later this week for my giveaway! Yippee! I am teaming up with Frogs in First! Love her stuff!
Have a wonderful day!

Okay… So I saw a pin about making boxes out of the flat rate boxes from the post office and starting thinking of all the cute ways to cover these! So, I checked out the post office website and discovered they will send these boxes out to you for FREE. You can order 10 or 25 boxes… Click here to go to their site! No shipping or anything! Cutting the boxes and making them cute will be time consuming but when they are done and made exactly the way I want it will be so worth it! How exciting is that!
I also found these at Ikea… My most favorite place in the world! I am so going to make a trip there soon!
I also love these shirts from Mrs. Gilchrist’s class. She has made some already to be printed on transfer paper and onto T-shirts. I love the kindergarten one and the 100th Day! CUTE!!! This would be a great gift too!
