Back to School GALORE for Kinders! I'm in LOVE!

Woo-hoo!  We FINALLY finished up our newest unit JUST for KINDERS!

And I have to say I have a little crush!  You know when you have a picture in your head of something you want to create, and well...it turns out all CRAY-CRAY and you are like, "That was NOT what it looked like in my head!"  Yeah...been there, done that!

So this project ACTUALLY turned out like what was in my head...can I get an "AMEN!"

I can't wait to get back to school and start working on these writing, math, and emergent readers with my kiddos!  I think they will love them, but more so I think they will be great for keeping kiddos engaged with meaningful and appropriate activities AND we'll be building our class community all the while!

Here are a couple of my favorite things!

PROJECTS that BUILD COMMUNITY
This project may also be purchased separate from the pack!
This flap book project has kiddos drawing and writing about themselves, their classmates, teachers, and a little about their 1st week in kindergarten.  These make great hall displays and a nice keepsake for families!

EMERGENT READERS
and
GETTING TO KNOW ME

 WRITING, GETTING TO KNOW MY
CLASSMATES, and MORE!

Grab these 2 CUTIES for FREE!


This pack is ON SALE TODAY for only $4.00...that's 50% off...woot! woot!

Million Dollar Tips TPT Tips!

Did I mention how awesome VEGAS was?? Not only did we meet the founder of TPT, but we also met an amazing LADY!! Deanna Jump is Teachers Pay Teachers first Millionaire!

 Was it the the money that stood out about this AMAZING LADY? Did she dress in DIAMONDS and FANCY CLOTHES???  NO!!

 It was her STORY that was from the HEART that made her worth a million dollars in my eyes!! During her story I laughed, cried and reflected on how I was living my life.

 I won't tell her story, but just know, she came from humble beginnings, worked hard, helped her family that was in desperate need by improving the quality of their lives, and earned an awesome payout!! Wow- she deserves to be a millionaire, just from how she lives her life!

Why do I tell you about Deanna Jump??? She did give us some tips for having a successful tpt store.

1. Start a blog if you don't have one!
2. Network with the awesome bloggers who have been blogging already
3. Make great products and get them out in the world (email them to teacher friends or strangers who teach in other schools for FREE)- If you send it to them, they will come!! COME TO YOUR STORE!!
4. Update older products so that your customers feel you are giving them the best customer service ever!!
5. Keep trying!!
5. Be grateful!

Hope everyone is enjoying the rest of their summer!! Cristy is headed to the beach with her pals for girls weekend!! WILD TIMES!! I am headed back to work. Hmmm why is Cristy enjoying more summer, while I am headed back to work?? Hmmmm more to come..... ?

Ahhh Vegas!!

Hubby and I are back from Vegas BABY!!! It was AMAZING!!

Oh my!! We walked and walked and then walked some more! Each hotel was super cool! We saw 2 shows, went to an Ice Room for a yummy treat... hmm... get what I mean :)  Yikes, time to get busy with a diet/exercise plan!

Feeling so inspired and supercharged after the Teachers Pay Teachers, Inaugural, Premium Sellers Conference!! Wow! Met some inspiring people and heard some fabulous stories!

Going do a separate blog post for each of the GREATS I met!!

Let's start with Paul!

Paul Edelman is the founder of TPT! What a brilliant, humble and truly amazing man! Not bad on the eyes either! Paul was at the conference with his adorable wife and precious parents! Loved hearing his amazing journey from traveling around the world to ending up in the classroom and then becoming the founder of TPT! AWESOME!!! Did you know he brought with him to the conference 749 hugs!!! One hug for each of his TPT teachers! What a thoughtful guy!! This company is growing at an amazing rate! Can't wait to see what the future holds!


More to come soon!!!
