New Products & Winners

 Thank you to those who entered my drawing (and thanks, for following my daughter's new blog The 219).  Congratulations to Thursday T. & Roxanne C.  I will email you the Pumpkin Patch Literacy set soon!

I just finished three new products!  I've been working on the Pumpkin Patch Number Sense pack for a while, but I got the idea for the two Halloween sets when I was driving home yesterday.  I grabbed my phone and typed a quick memo to myself when I was stopped at a looong red light.  They are now all available on TpT.  Please, check them out.

Happy Sunday!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was super busy, so that is why my Five for Friday is late (again...  is this going to be a trend?)
The Kinder Diva team:  Patty, Becca, and me.  (Deb wasn't at school Friday)  A parent in Patty's class got these cool shirts from Etsy for us.  It was such an unexpected and wonderful surprise!  (She is a friend of Patty, so she knows all about Kinderdivaliciousness!)

Jolly Phonics!  Oh, how I love Jolly Phonics!  This is one of the "cheat sheets" that came with our set.  I laminated them so the kids could write on them.  I gave them a sound & they circled the letter/letters that make the sound.  This is the first year using this program, and I am amazed at how well they can decode & write words already!
 These are some little booklets from Teacher's Helper - check out the spelling!  They really, truly did spell these all by themselves!  Yay!  We haven't covered every sound/spelling yet, but so far I'm impressed!

Butterfly release.  The county's agriculture vocational building is on our school's campus.  Lucky for us!  The beautiful gardens in our elementary courtyard were planted and maintained by the "AG" students, and they raised a flock (??) of Monarch butterflies.  The Kinders got to help the "big kids" by holding the butterflies as they were tagged.  It was a great educational experience!  The kids were so excited!  Of course, this proved to be wonderful writing prompt!  Check out the great work below!


Red carpet event!  Well, not really a real red carpet, but a fun event anyway!  My daughter (Gabrielle of The 219) works for an advertising agency that was hired to help a local wedding venue to upgrade their image & presence.  To celebrate their new advertising plan a cocktail party was held last Friday.  Because Gabrielle's boyfriend is in the Marines, and is currently in California for training, I got to go!  Check out my dress - it was on clearance at JC Penney for $5.00! 

October Currently.  Check out this fun linky at Oh Boy 4th Grade.
The kale smoothies were pretty tasty!  Gabrielle is really interested in healthy living, and likes to create yummy (although admittedly sometimes unusual) treats.  And, yes this is the same girl who whips up decadent cupcakes!  

One of the things I like about fall is the fact that I can bring out sweaters!  I own a few, er lots, of cardigans and sweaters.  I also am looking forward to wearing my fallish skirts with my cardies.

Speaking of clothing...  I'm thinking of my leopard print ankle pants from J Crew, a cute tee, and one of my cardies.  I think I'll wear my gold flats I got on clearance from Banana Republic Factory.  Ahhh, clothes.  I really love them!  

I have tons of cute fall/Halloween decorations that need to come out of storage.  Soon.

I am getting close to being finished with my math set.  Look for it soon on TpT!

Literacy Stations

One of the reasons I like to blog about my Literacy Stations is that the posts become a sort of pictorial diary of the activities we have done. I do keep a binder with the activities written out, but it's fun to go back and look at the pictures of the real stuff!

This past week my Kinders practiced skills using these materials.

Reading & spelling classmates' names onto magnetic boards. 
 An alphabet game from an old issue of The Mailbox
 Two more alphabet file folder games from Lakeshore Learning plus a worksheet from Teacher's Helper.
 Another cute activity from Kindergarten Smiles.  This is also from the same set we used last week.  We didn't use the cards exactly how she had them in her set, but the kids had fun spelling CVC words with her colorful cards.
These are the same cards that we used last week from Kindergarten Smiles.  This time the kiddos rainbow wrote the words onto this page I made.  Click HERE to grab a copy to use with any word list.
