My First Freebie!

Wow! I love Summer vacation! I have time to catch up with my two beautiful children, I have time to cook - Really Cook! (and I LOVE to cook!) and I have time to find new ideas for next school year! This Summer has really helped me learn new things to help me be a better teacher! I am so excited about starting next school year (and a little bummed that I won't have as much time with my other loves!)!

I have found some wonderful freebies at The Classic Crafter

She is truly creative! Check out her blog and follow her! :)

I also found some great freebies at Just Add ClipArt

She is having a freebie linking party!  All my school stuff is at my school computer, except for this one thing I created at home. This is my first time to add a file from Scribd - hope it works! I used DJ Inkers artwork and fonts (don't you love DJ Inkers!)  You can leave me a message and I will email you if it doesn't work.

My Easter Bunny Book

Enjoy! Until next time! :)

Pokey Pins (Push Pins)

Ok - I use push pins (aka pokey pins) to hang things on my bulletin board, but would have never thought to let my kindergarteners use them (they might "poke" themself or others!)  But then... Mrs. Miner changed my mind!!! Here is her post: http://kindergartenmonkeybusiness.blogspot.com/

This is an awesome idea!!! I can print out alphabet letters, sight words, numbers, the list is endless, and let them "poke" them. What a great way to build fine motor skills, have fun while learning and create artwork for their windows at home (I only have one small one in my classroom). This is a treasured and creative idea!!! I am learning sooo much this Summer! I love blogs!!! (I think I am an addict and need a Kindergarten Classroom Blog!!!) :)
Until Next time!!!!

Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten!

Well, we are 3 weeks into Summer and I am already planning next year! I have had a few people tell me it is time to relax, it will be there in August. But, the teacher inside of me keeps telling me to plan. As I have been looking at everyone's cute blogs, I can't wait to start a classroom blog! Just trying to decide on a name? and then find someone to help me with all the quirks... how do you insert a document that you create? How do you get your background and header so cute? So many things to learn, before I dive in!!!

Next year I will be starting my 11th year teaching Kindergarten. I have always felt God called me to teach and each year God gives me so many blessings while I am teaching! I love my job and would not trade it for the world (although there are days.... LOL!)

While I have been glancing at all these cute blogs, I came across a super cute blog! Kinder Kraziness. If you have not seen her blog, check it out... she has some super cute ideas! :)
and right now she has her Miss Bindergarten unit as a freebie!
It is super cute! It sure is fun planning next year while I get to relax in my PJ's!!!
Until next time!

Learning Resources Giveaway!

I love Learning Resources! I recently was given a Pretend and Play Doctor's Kit.


My son loves it! I have been the patient at least 200 times so far! And the case is wonderful! He can open it and close it without asking me for help! (Which makes cleaning up wonderfully easy and there has been no whining - well, at least not yet!) I adore it! You have to check out the Learning Resources website - they have such cool products! http://www.learningresources.com/  :)  And while you are at it, Jolly Mom and Learning Resources are giving away a Learning Resources Word Whiz. Check out her blog  at  http://www.jollymom.com/ . Good Luck!!! :)
