March Currently & "Featured" on TPT

I just popped over to the "official" Teachers Pay Teachers Pinterest Board 
and guess what I saw? (!!!)

Click the picture to pop over and check out the 10 Featured FREEBIES for March!!

I'm loving LOVE loving my new
Sight Word Snapshots Sentence-Writing Fluency mini-books!!
Have you checked them out yet?
The first one in the series is FREE.  :)

And, here's a brand new FREEBIE to celebrate!!  

Are you still celebrating Dr. Seuss and Read Across America?  
Last week, we had 2 snow days and Kindergarten Round-Up.
So, I postponed our celebration until this week.  
I created this beginning blends game for my literacy stations this week.
It turned out SO cute and I think my kids will go crazy for it!!  
What a fun way to practice a tricky skill!!  :)

Anyhoo -- I love the month of March!!  My mind automatically shifts to thoughts of SPRING (even though we have 2 feet of snow on the ground.)  I'm ready for the sun to start shining around here!!

Listening:  We are trying VERY hard to be a more disciplined family.  So, we now create Family Plans...and stick to them...Every Single Week.  We're hoping to correct some of our bad habits before they are too deeply ingrained in Son-Shine.  However, we give ourselves an hour of "Free Choice Time" on Saturday when we can indulge a little.  This morning, Son-Shine is video-gaming it up during his hour!  So, I'm listening to the "piu-piu-zhoom" sound effects as I work on my Currently!

Loving:  I'm seriously having so much fun blogging and creating things for TPT.  My creative side has been squashed down for so many years and it's good to finally set it free!  :)

Thinking:  I absolutely love teaching and everything about being a teacher.  I'm living my childhood dream and I truly am so grateful for my life!  However, I sure do love Spring Break!!  Just 11 more school days!!

Wanting:  We have been so, so, so busy.  We get home in the evening, cook dinner, do the "Mom & Dad Show", do our own separate 'end of the day' routine, then fall into bed and crash out barely even aware of the other's presence!  So, I'm missing my a lot  We bicker less and are just generally happier people when we get to date each other!  I'm already working on a plan for next weekend.  You've just gotta prioritize your marriage sometimes, peeps.

Needing:  My classroom is a wreck.  It's shameful.  And, I want to start sharing classroom pictures with you all, but I've got to "get the house cleaned before company comes over!"  All those days when I was sick and subs were running my room REALLY took a toll.  I've got to get in there and clean, organize, and purge.  I replaced a teacher who retired and I was SO VERY LUCKY that she left a bunch of stuff for me.  But, now that I've got almost a year of kindy under my belt, I'm feeling better able to decide what to keep and how to organize it.

Like:  I found Honeycrisp Apples (our FAV) at the grocery store and I paid an arm & a leg for them because I just HAD to have them.

Love:  I'm loving Anthropologie right now...I have a wish list a mile long.  Sigh.

Hate:  Assessments.  'nuff said.

I'm linking up with Freebielicious, Sharing Kindergarten, and Oh' Boy, Fourth Grade!

Classroom Freebies Manic Monday


  1. No kidding with the assessments! I have a big pile of writing assessments waiting for me to grade them in my bag right now!

  8. My first year teaching I also moved into a room that the former K teacher had left me SOOOO many things. I was torn between being grateful for the stuff and overwhelmed by all of the stuff and then eventually annoyed by all the stuff and actually began to think that she left it for me just so she wouldn't have to throw it out :) New teachers can't be too choosy but really. I hope you get your room in order.
