I can’t tell you what it is…you need to go and look for yourself.

Educents Back to School Blowout Sale!!

educentsb2s

Hi Everyone.
In case you haven’t heard…Educents is having their Back to School Blowout Sale! Say it ain’t so…please!! I can not believe school is just around the corner for many of us. I have only been off for one month, so I still have one month to go. But, I know many of you are getting ready to go back or already have gone back to school.

I feel your pain and your excitement. Let’s be honest, we don’t want to go back but can’t wait to get into our rooms and set up for the new year. Only another teacher can understand how happy you get when you open up a new set of markers or find that perfect colored basket. My husband thinks I am absolutely crazy!

Since I do not have A Dollar Tree near me… boooo! My mom calls me at least once a week to go over what she sees at the Dollar Tree by her. She is fabulous!!

Even though I am not going back for another month, I am already shopping. I even made my Teacher’s Toolkit. I know, I know…better late than never. I woke up this morning to see Educent’s Back to School Blowout Sale and got giddy. Like I said only another teacher truly understands what I mean.

Here is the hard part. I already have so many things in my cart, I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. 🙂 🙁

In my cart already: The Write Stuff ELA Bundle

Back to school shopping can be very dangerous! I have to limit myself to only two. Any suggestions?

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Hey everyone! It’s been one TOUGH week.
Let’s start with The Ugly!
Thursday, June 26th was my last day of school. The day before, I was in a car accident. Thankfully, I was by myself and I am just very sore.
20140625_162919

The BAD
The last day of school was a blur. Of course I went to school, I couldn’t miss the last day with my kiddos!
Now I am on summer vacation with doctor appointments and physical therapy. I just keep reminding myself that I am lucky that I really wasn’t seriously hurt, my whole body hurts but nothing some PT won’t solve.

And FINALLY… The GOOD!! 🙂
Our Educents Bundle went live. A bunch of amazing people got together and put a science, math, and engineering bundle together.

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 10.59.55 AM

But then…we decided to make it better! How you ask???
We added literacy to the bundle. If I weren’t part of this bundle, I would buy it. The Minion Game Sight word Games for 2nd and 3rd grade are so cute. I might have to go to TpT and just buy it.

The Catch A Wave Literacy Centers are fantastic. What kid wouldn’t love working on synonyms and antonyms with a sunny, beach theme.

Educents STEM Bundle!

Hi everyone! I am really excited to be teaming up with Educents for their STEM bundle.

Thanks for stopping by to see some great work my kids have been working on during the year.  =)

One topic we have been working on in science class is force and motion. The kids always love this topic. There is really some great material to help you teach force and motion to your kiddos!

Here are two books that I use in my class.

Here is a great video that I use with my class. My kids love Bill Nye The Science Guy. This video is 23 minutes long. Sometimes we watch the whole video and sometimes we only watch pieces of the video.
 
is a great website that has different games for the kids to play force and motion games and to learn more about force and motion.

My kids enjoy playing with Cootie Catchers, or as I like to call them, Fortune Tellers.
