Summer Time!

I know that sadly there are some of you still sweating it out in the classroom.  But I'm sure when I'm back in school August 15th, you'll be chillin' at the pool.  Just in case you are still plugging away, I created a Summer Fun Pack of centers, games, a memory book and printables to help give you some meaningful things to do and ways to review before the end of the year.  In addition, my friend Terry and I have our House for Hermit Crab unit you can grab. It's such a fun little unit full of fiction and nonfiction.  














In addition we have this little freebie for y'all. A cute mini-reader to share with your little people.  Just click below to grab this book.

Happy Birthday to Deedee and Me!

Tomorrow is a pretty important day if you didn't already know.  I mean, I'm sure it's marked on all of your calendars. Tomorrow, Deedee Wills and I celebrate our birthday.  I mean, could I have asked for a better birthday twin? She's been one my dearest friends for quite a while and I just love her to pieces, so I wouldn't want to share a birthday with anyone else.  In celebration of our special day we are sharing some summer freebies with you and giving y'all a chance to win a big old Amazon gift card. In addition, our stores will be on sale all day! WOOHOO! 

 You can click here for a cute little math center.
And finally, don't forget to enter to win an $87.00 gift card to Amazon.  Why 87? Well, we've combined our ages to give y'all a little shopping spree.  

Enter below! Then head over to Deedee's Blog to grab her birthday gifts. 

The End of Year is Almost Here!

Can you believe how incredibly close we are to the end of the school year? The first hint that it's time to wrap things up, is when your sweet babies stop listening and start acting as if they've completely lost their minds.  Please tell me I'm not alone.  


 First up will be Mother's Day Tea. One of my favorite little traditions of the year.  It's such a sweet day for our mom's and their babies. 






After all the Mother's Day fun is complete, I'll start working on end of the year review items, awards and of course report cards. 
I'll be send home this pack with my Kinder friends.  



 And this with my firsties.
I always wrap it all up for the end of the year.  This includes the book list and review sheets, crayons, glue and an end of the year DVD. 
Not only do my kiddos get this cute little packet at the end of the year, one of my absolute favorite things to do is our awards ceremony.  I created my Dollar Store Awards a few years ago and they are hit every year.  The kids can't wait to see what item will accompany their award, and every one of them is so proud! 
This year I found every last thing I need at the Dollar Spot at Target, but if your bins are looking thin, the Dollar Tree will be your best friend. 






If you need any help ending your year with some fun and making sure your kiddos stay prepared for summer, then you can click the links above.  

Everything is on sale for Teacher Appreciate Day.  

We're ready to celebrate my boy's teachers! 
I hope you all are spoiled this week too! 



Erin Condren does it again!

Adorable planners, pens, cute accessories, fun stickers, pretty much sums up a little piece of teacher heaven if you ask me.  Lucky for us, Erin Condren never disappoints.  I'm so excited for their big launch of all things teacher, on May 3rd. It's just in time for Teacher Appreciation Day.  

So let's check out some of the cutest darn teacher swag ever! 

First, how adorable is this t-shirt? It's super soft and this apple design is so fun. 
 Speaking of the apple design, this is definitely my new favorite cover.  
I don't know what I'd do without my teacher planner. There is nothing Erin Condren hasn't thought about and now there is even more! 




 If you have a planner, some of these pages might look familiar to you.  They have added more pages for notes. In addition, there are these adorable two sided pockets, and a new wet erase list at the back, which I love! 

Also, how stinking cute is the adorable zippered clutch to carry your planner, pens, etc?  This is a genius idea and it's a definite must-have! 
You also have to grab these pens.  I have the primary colored set, and these pens are my absolute favorite. You know those pens that make your handwriting look really great?  
These are those pens.  And of course, these match my new planner, so that's a double bonus!
