I'm baaack! :)

You may [or may not] have noticed my lengthy absence from my dear old blog. Well, I'm back! Since my last post I have moved, unpacked, taught summer school, visited friends and family in Southern California, and started a new school year with a new assistant and a new vice-principal (and as of late a new superintendent) and embarked on National Board Certification candidacy. I have 22 kiddos this year and based on the BOY DIBELS scores, I've got my work cut out for me. Needless to say, my blog has been neglected to say the least.

I finally feel like I've got it together enough [who really has it all together anyway?] to catch up with all my friends in the blogosphere. I feel like I've missed out on so much so I'll dive right in by linking up with Farley for the November Currently.

I just love anything by Putumayo Kids. I love how culturally diverse the music is...check out the website, I bet you'll them them too! 

And as a ginormous THANK YOU for following my blog even though you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth...You can download my latest product from my Teachers pay Teachers shop for F-R-E-E until 10pm CST tonight (sorry y'all, I can't stay up later than that!).  I use this packet to teach phoneme segmentation and my kiddos just LOVE it! We use a small toy car to segment the sounds and it is great for those tactile-kinesthetic learners. (Really though, what kinder kiddos doesn't like to touch everything things?) While you're at my shop, how about following my shop and leaving some love? :) And if you're not a follower yet....follow my dear blog first then head over to TpT to grab your freebie!

Hope y'all are having a fabulous weekend! :)

  5. Hi! How come I've never seen your blog before?!? It's so cute! I'm glad I found you! You are right before me on the currently list!

    Can you believe that we are out so soon for Thanksgiving? I don't know about you but I need a break---BAD!!! I used to live in GA so we went through Nashville all the time when we traveled north to see family---I don't have an actual spot to tell you about but you will love it there! It's such a cool place!!! Have fun!

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm headed to your blog now :)

      And I know I will love Nashville! I visited briefly on a drive from Cincinnati to Memphis and cannot wait to really explore the city!

  6. So excited I found you today! Your blog is so stinkin' cute and I love that stoplight idea. I will be back to see what else you have up your sleeve sooner rather than later :)
