October 2011 - Miss Kindergarten

Shout out Saturday!

 As I was pinning this morning, I came across the cutest blogger, Traci from Dragonflies in First!! I couldn't stop pinning!! I mean look at all these cute ideas!

Where's My Mummy? Activities
Money Chant

 Super adorable iPhones that she shared as a Freebie Friday on TBA!

She's also hosting a Classroom Views linky party. Go check out her classroom, it's so cute!

Thanks for the great ideas Traci!  


Where it all started!

 My long term relationship with Lettering Delights all started with their wondeful dollar days. And guess what! They're back! But for a limited time only!

 Select fonts, alphabets and graphic sets are only $1-$2, but only until October 31st! 
You won't want to miss this!!

P.S. I entered Print Candee's 1000 facebook contest and totally won $100 Amazon giftcard and $50 to Michaels. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world!!! What should I buy?!?!

More Target Eraser Games!

 So I heard that Target had pumpkin erasers and ghost erasers just like the bat erasers I found! Did you find these?
{Erin from Creating and Teaching found them and made these cute activities to go with them!}

I also found erasers at Michaels!
Pumpkins, ghosts and spiders for $2.99 but I used my 40% off coupon so they actually only cost $1.93!

Here is a literacy center game that you can use the pumpkin erasers for:
Lettering matching for Pre-K to 1st grade
If you have the pumpkin erasers, they would be perfect to use as the game pieces to cover the letters. If not, no problem, just use any type of tiny manipulative you have in your classroom.

And a fun math game to practice less & more:

Number practice for K-3rd grade
If you have the ghost erasers, they would be perfect to use as the game pieces to cover the ghosts. If not, no problem, just use any type of tiny manipulative you have in your classroom.

All of these games and more can be found at my TpT store!

Organizing My Pinterest Boards

 For as much as I love organizing, this took me far longer than it should have! I just kept getting sucked into pinning such super cute ideas and never had time to organize them. Now I have several new categories!
*Classroom Activities- Literacy
*Classroom Activities- Math
*Classroom Organization
*Bulletin Boards and Charts
*Fall Ideas/Activities

Click on the image above to see all of my boards and to follow me!
If you would like an invite to start pinning, leave your email in the comments!

{Also, is it just me, or do you think Pinterest needs sub-categories?! I would love to have all my boards pinned under "Classroom Ideas" and then organized within that category. Or does Pinterest already have this and I just haven't realized??}

Gone Batty!

I found these fun Halloween bat erasers in the dollar spot at Target and was inspired to make a bat themed game!

Just print the games you want to use! And in order to conserve colored ink, you can still tell the 4 different games apart without even printing in color! Match the picture icon on the game board with the equation cards.

Graphics by Just So Scrappy Too

And because I've gone batty the first 5 people to comment with their email will get this game for free!
I also have it on sale for $1.50 on both TpT and Teachers Notebook until Monday!

Happy {almost} Halloween!

My Favorite Clip Art!

But that's not going to help anyone, now is it?! But maybe this will! Here are all of my favorite clip art sites and some are even having sales!!!

 One of the Kindergarten classes I am working with made the cutest little drawings of trees through the seasons.

Aren't they adorable!? I still can't believe that a 5 year old made this!

The teacher went through each season step by step, talking about what the grass looks like during the season, as well as the tree leaves.

I made a template that you can download {here} if you'd like to use this with your class.
