paper star

This is so cool!  I don't know if their little scissors could cut through that many layers, tho'.

T is also for Target

Like every other teacher who enjoys their job, I love a good deal for school.  After watching everyone else rake in such good deals and share what they would do with them, I had to join in the fun.
I got the mat that Fran got so inspired by.  I got 6 of the pocket charts for small group activities. I got alphabet stickers for a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree I like to do. I got enough of the wipe off boards for each child to have one.  I know there'll be lots of things to do with them.

The stamp are self explanitory.  I can't believe they were only a dollar.  The star pointers will be teacher gifts. I also got name stickers, labels and of course laminating pouches to save all the GREAT stuff I find on all these great blogs.

classroom birthdays

I always have trouble remembering to do something extra for the birthday child and I found this great giveaway freebie just for this.,  I haven't figured out yet how to add the picture of this.  Thanx Donna

my summer read

This book was such an inspiration the first time I read it, before I ever started teaching.  I wanted to make a difference the way Marva did. I forgot about this book for years, then one summer day I came across it again at the library.  Of course, I checked it out and again it inspired me.  She does so much for these kids and does it her way.  This copy I found at a library sale and had to get it.  So every summer I pull it out and get reinspired.
