Throwing a Sale!

I’m so excited to announce my first sale on TPT!  The prices of all my September products have been slashed significantly, and I’m adding 20% off for the next four days, starting Sunday, September 30.  Come on over to my store and stock up on some great September ideas for next year.  After the sale, all the items will be retired until next year!


Thank you God!

Blessed Saturday mornings, with its bit of sleep-in, time for coffee and newspaper reading, and a slower pace.  I have a niggling cough that I suspect might be bronchitis, so I really need this day to re-energize.  Thank you, God, for Saturday mornings.  To celebrate Saturday mornings, I offer you this freebie, Days of the Week in English and Spanish.  I hope you enjoy it!

Always Thinking Ahead. . .

I swear, as a teacher, we live two weeks in the future!  I know I’m thinking two weeks ahead about Columbus Day — oh, wait, that’s only 10 days away, isn’t it?  Well, I’ve pulled out my October box of goodies, and I’ve got some great activities planned.  Most of my activities come from my Columbus Unit. Click on the blue word to see the unit.  Here is a math worksheet I created as part of my Race to America  game.  I’ve pulled it out as my Columbus Day gift to you!  click on the worksheet to download it.

Happy planning ahead!

A Good Day to Sart

I decided yesterday would be a good day to start my blog adventure since we were having a fun day at school. We celebrated Johnny Appleseed Day with so many fun activities!

First we cut up apples using plastic knives.  Everyone helped!

Next, we put all the apples into the crockpot and let them cook for 27 hours on warm!  We finally got to taste it today after lunch.  Most of the children loved it; a few didn’t like it at all!

We also played an addition math game with the apple seeds. 

It was a lot of fun for the kids, and a nice break from the usual routine for all of us.

In the afternoon, we had parent helpers come in and we did four different stations that revolved around apples!  The favorite was the apple product tasting station.  If you’re looking for a good place to start your Johnny Appleseed day, you can check out my unit here.
