Buggy for Bugs Carson-Dellosa Giveaway!!!

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

This past January, I was honored to join some of my favorite bloggers and the fabulous Carson-Dellosa team for the 2014 Creative Blogger Summit. Being given this opportunity will always be one of the most amazing experiences of my teaching career!

The Lookbook featuring all of our designs arrived in the mail last week! It was surreal and exciting to see all of our blood, sweat, and TEARS{Side note: I was 8 weeks pregnant with my sweet Ella during this trip..aka- emotional, nauseous, and exhausted} come together so beautifully! Worth every bit of the hardwork!

Wednesday, May 21, 2014
It's official... I survived the last day of school. Two more days of post-planning to complete several checklists, RTI paperwork, & organize/shutdown my classroom and then bring it on SUMMERTIME!!! 
Oh my goodness, the last day is always so exhausting...so let me warn you that this post will be short & sweet because my bed is calling my name LOUD and CLEAR...I'm sure you all can relate:) I just wanted to quickly share a cute end of the year treat idea with y'all! It's super simple to make, inexpensive, and got many ooohhhs and aaahhs this afternoon from my smart cookies!
All you need are little packs of cookies, the smart cookie tags, and you're ready to go!

Have Fun Teaching Sight Word Videos

Sunday, May 18, 2014
I'm a teacher who loves to turn EVERYTHING into a song!! It is my #1 hook'em strategy! I can't carry a tune at all, but my sweet students don't care, thank goodness. Luckily, there are so many music video resources out there to help me out on a daily basis. One my favorites is Have Fun Teaching and they need our help! They have just launched a BIG IDEA on KickStarter that will help kids all over the world learn how to read! Join The Movement - Click Here.

If this project is funded during the month of MAY, Have Fun Teaching will be creating 220 Sight Word Music Videos that will give teachers and parents a fun and effective way to help children become better readers!

Here is a sample video for the Sight Word, "IS":

Every little bit helps and you can even receive awesome Rewards for backing this project!
