The Sweet Stuff

I sometimes need to redirect my frame of mind and focus on the good...I love my job so much and my students need me to be focused and happy. My goal is to be the best teacher for them this year, and that means not stressing out over the uncontrollable circumstances. I loved receiving this little gem today:

Love this! My kiddos are the sweetest little things! I get about 10 of these sweet notes a day : ), but some of them really make me smile- like this one. I am glad to know I am "budfool" in their eyes. Precious. 


Literacy Stations

I am basically in LOVE with literacy stations! : )!!!

We were told by our district we needed to start incorporating small group literacy stations and small group math stations into our curriculum. Many teachers were really stressing out about the change into our everyday schedules, mainly because the demands for us teachers are at times overwhelming, and the thought of adding more into our already crammed schedules is hard to hear! I GET IT.... fortunately for me...I had began literacy & math stations when I started teaching in my own classroom. Small group instruction is one of the most beneficial ways for children to learn, that's why I wanted to make stations a part of my classroom environment. My literacy/math station process took/takes a lot of preparation and planning, but the students LOVE them and they are very beneficial. I just posted some great visual aids for stations in a classroom on my store. Here is one slide-- 
I plan on adding some more station/center ideas in posts to come, but for now I am off to watch ND win this game!



Good evening! I am right in the middle of my parent teacher conferences. I love meeting the families and getting to know the children on more of a personal level! I am exhausted though! Just one more to go for the evening...Diet Mt. Dew has definitely been my best friend tonight! Once tomorrow is over...FALL BREAK! I am very excited to spend time with my baby and work on my products for my TpT store.

Diet MTN. DEW to the rescue!!

We just finished our Non-Fiction Unit. The notebook I created was a big success! The students LOVED taking ownership in their notebook. You can grab it for free in my store!
Non-Fiction Text Feature Notebook

Have a fabulous night!


I am so excited! I just opened my TpT store and I already have 74 people who have downloaded my Non-Fiction Text Feature notebook! It's an awesome freebie, too! Right now, I know I don't have much of a following, (if any) on my blog. I am going to make it my goal to start marketing and advertising as much as possible to get my products out there. Check out my store!
