Sneak Peek! 100th Day of School!

I have always loved the 100th day of school. Why? I'm not sure... Maybe because it's a great opportunity to do lots of fun activities that keeps the kiddos engaged while they are learning without realizing it! Can you guess what file I'm working on now? If you guessed "100th  Day of School Color by Code Addition and So Much More" you're right! Here's a peek at one of the activities that will be included in the file.

The picture shows a hat that is adorned with a bow that has 100 dots! The bow is attached to a sentence strip that has been decorated with 100 tally marks. My kiddos have always loved wearing silly hats on the 100th day of school. I'm sure this hat will be a big hit with the girls. 

My latest file is ready and it's for sale on TPT!

Yep, I know...it's been awhile!

Happy New Year!

Did you make a New Year's Resolution? I did...
It's to blog at least once a week. I certainly hope to keep this resolution!
So much has happened in my life since I last blogged. The most important event was:

Henry "Braxton" Bridges was born! I'm a Nonna now!

The next important event was:

After 33 wonderful years teaching K-2, I retired!

I'm really enjoying retirement! I thought I would have more time to spend on TPT files, but being Braxton's Nonna takes up a lot of my time!

Speaking of Teachers Pay Teachers, this is the file I'm working on and hope to get posted ASAP:

Winter themed Color by Code Addition 0-20

That's it for now...
I hope you have a Blessed New Year!

Back to School...

It's back to school with the kiddos tomorrow! It's a happy and sad time for me...I have missed my school kids, but I am really going to miss sleeping late!
Over Christmas break, I was busy working on TPT files. Drawing clip art and frames for my files is a new addiction! I updated my January Morning Work packet. I added 30 pages plus spiffed up a few of the old pages with new boarders. Take a look at a couple of the new pages:


Do you have an iPad? My iPad is my favorite toy! I have an iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini. I love them all! The app that I use to draw my clip art and frames is called ArtStudio. There was a little bit of a learning curve, but I have gotten rather comfortable using it for my creations.

There is one more thing that I would like to share with you before I log off to watch the BCS National Championship football game. I "LOVE" Kid Snippets. This Drivers Ed clip is one of my favorites. Enjoy!

April Showers Bring... Umbrellas!

I'm sure you have heard the old saying "April showers bring May flowers". Well, I think we will get ready for some April showers. Today I created an April Showers glyph that I plan on sharing with you on Monday. I'll give you a little sneak peak of what to expect on Monday below.



My kiddos had so much fun making their umbrellas! We have used up all of our glue sticks... so we had to use the dreaded bottles of Elmer's glue. Why can't students just use a little dab of glue!!! Some of my little angels tried to use a whole bottle of glue to attach just one raindrop! (I'm exaggerating...but really, they do not seem to understand the difference between just a dot of glue and a huge blob of glue!) 
I think the raffia bows add just that extra bit of flair that makes the umbrella craft stand out. My next craftivity will be...did you guess May flowers? If you did, you are probably correct!

Thanks for visiting,
