It Is A SALE!

I haven't been as active in posting lately and I am so very sorry for being a bad blogger, but I have been trying to be a good mommy, wife, teacher, and daughter. Let's just say I have had to overcome some obstacles in my personal and professional life this school year so I have done a lot of soul-searching to find some valuable answers. Please bear with me as I try to continue on with my blog.


As a token of my appreciation for those faithful followers on my blog, I am putting my entire TpT store on sale this weekend (Friday through Sunday) for 15% off. If you are like me with a golfer hubby, you will not be able to watch TV since the Masters is on. I am sure I will be spending some money on TpT instead! I hope you can find something you can use within your classroom.

I am currently working to make some supplemental materials to go along with our reading series: Houghton-Mifflin Journeys (2011 edition) for 2nd grade so expect to see more of those popping up in my store if you are a 2nd grade teacher. Thanks for being the great teachers you are!

Five for Friday - Friday the 13th Style!

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! So far this week, we have had a full moon, gone from highs in the low 30's Sunday to the middle 70's today, and have Friday the 13th today....can you say Teacher Tired?!

But I wanted to share with you a few things that have been happening this week so I'm joining up with Doodle Bugs Teaching Five For Friday.

1 - We have been learning about homophones so my class and I created this simple anchor chart to help them remember what homophones are. Nothing fancy just a quick reminder for them I hope!


2 - I found out yesterday that my Donors Choose proposal for the Rooted in Reading books has been fully funded! Now I'm patiently (well maybe NOT so patiently) waiting for them to arrive! This proposal was funded so quickly! :)


3 - This week I've been working hard to level all my students on their current reading levels. We have to complete and turn these leveling sheets into our curriculum coach. Thankfully I finally finished the last kiddo's yesterday! YAH!


4 - Last Saturday, we had a chance of snow here in South Carolina and Miss M has never seen snow so we were hoping for some. We actually got a couple of 2-4 minute flurries, but nothing stuck. It was definitely a #SnowDayBust, but M still enjoyed it even though it was COLD! We are definitely not used to winter weather like some of you have!


5 - And finally this week was the College Football National Championship. We are a house divided by the South Carolina football teams - I am a die-hard Carolina Gamecocks fan while my hubby is a die-hard Clemson Tigers fan. Of course this week Clemson played in and WON the National Championship. My hubby was super excited and he even got to dress Miss M in her Clemson cheerleader outfit. I'm sorry but I just couldn't wear that gawdy shade of orange! LOL! Seriously though, I am proud that a SC team winning the National Championship!


Hope everyone enjoys your long weekend! I know I am planning to enjoy mine!

Happy New Year 2017! Now It's Back To School From Winter Break!

Happy new year 2017! Yes I have been back at school for 2 weeks but boy have they been busy?! And this week having a full moon and Friday the 13th all rolled into one...can you say EXHAUSTED?!!


I hope you all had a wonderfully relaxing winter break. I know mine went by WAY too fast! I did enjoy every minute of being home with my wonderful family! I know I am super late, but I wanted to share a few pictures with you of Christmas 2016 at our house! So here's a sneak peek into my home life:
We had to bake cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve (and she had to wear her chef's hat!). Thank goodness for Pillsbury refrigerated cookie dough! Of course she had to taste the dough, but don't tell!


Christmas morning! Oh the excitement in my horse-loving girl's eyes! She got a big, toy Appaloosa horse, a small Appaloosa horse, and My Little Pony PJs!

Happy New Year 2017!

I hope you have all had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas/Winter break. We go back to school tomorrow. As I was planning for this week, I found this writing sheet I created a few years ago and I am planning to use it with my 2nd graders to publish in the hall. There is a version for a boy and one for a girl. Feel free to use it as you see fit. It is a forever FREEBIE on TpT. I would absolutely LOVE some sweet feedback on this freebie!
