I cannot believe this is happening but today is my first day back! What in the WHAT!?! I feel like I just packed my room up and was getting ready for summer. However, the one thing that is making me a little more excited about this week is the TpT back to school sale! I […]

In the Classroom

It’s the first week of Kindergarten and whew…I am sleeping like a baby. It is always so shocking to go from May to August and you just forget how much you have to really dig in and get started right out of the gate. Today, I had to teach kiddos how to roll their dice […]

One thing I remember from college that I have always used as a way for my students to learn about each other is Me-Boxes. Each year, I have students put together their Me-Boxes at the beginning of the year and we also use it as their memory boxes at the end of the year. I […]
