Can't believe it's almost May?!?! {freebies}

Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Seriously, is it really almost May?!? Can't believe I only have 15 more days with my first graders this year! Bittersweet times... excited about summer and all the extra family time it brings, but I always get so attached to my kiddos. And let me tell you- being pregnant does not help my emotional state- my poor, poor hubby!!! HAHA!!! 

Anyhow, I know one thing for sure about the end of the school year and that's the importance of keeping the learning & fun going STRONG!!

With that said, I'm so excited to have my May: Ready, Set, Print packet to help keep my smarties engaged over the next few weeks. Not only is it a time saver, but my kids love them!! I've found that they can be used in a variety of ways- morning work, math or literacy stations, homework, sub plans, etc!
I'd love for you to try these freebie printables out in your classroom!!

Stayed tuned for my Ready, Set, Print SUMMER packet!! I should have it posted in a couple of weeks!
Let the summer countdown begin...15 days....I think I can, I think I can...I think I can...P.S...don't be jealous- I report back for preplanning on July 30th...OUCH!! 

How many days do you have left?!?!


MEGA Giveaway: Keep Calm and Give Back

Saturday, April 26, 2014

I am so fortunate to be teaming up with some of my favorite blogging buddies to help an amazing family!!!

Mr. Senior is an amazing husband, a dedicated father, a wrestling coach, a talented athlete, and much, much more. Among these qualities he is also an inspiration to every single individual that he meets. Mr. Senior was injured in 1995 at the age of 23. Each day, he deals with a T12 spinal cord injury that has caused numerous health issues. For many, an injury such as this would have been an injury that they could not overcome. But not for Mr. Senior. He remains active in the community, coaches his sons' wrestling teams, and continues to work on building his strength. You can read more of his story right here! As you can imagine, arriving from place to place can present many challenges for Mr. Senior, and he is in need of a wheelchair accessible vehicle so that he can continue to be involved in the lives of his boys and family. 

So…how can you help this precious family?!? 

Mr. Senior is currently involved in a competition to win a wheelchair accessible vehicle. This vehicle will allow Mr. Senior to spend time with his sons at school, continue coaching their wrestling teams, and spend time volunteering around the community…something he is extremely passionate about. All we need to do is vote…vote…vote! It is super easy to do and only takes a quick second each day.
