WOW it's been a busy day! I could get a whole lot more done on my school stuff and blog if I had a housekeeper. Hmmmm, think my husband will go for it? Nah, who am I kidding. If we pay for a housekeeper I can't spend so much money on my kindergarten babies and cute clip art! So, no housekeeper for me! I have been working on getting my new classroom theme completed. I have done rainbow colors in my room for quite a few years now and I decided it was time for something new. I went crazy getting some jungle clip art. Almost too much. It was hard to decide what to use. Due to the size of my jungle theme package, I had to split it up into three items on TPT. If you are interested in the package that has the Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Word Wall stuff, Incentives etc. click here. If you are only interested in getting the alphabet using the jungle theme then click here. Or if you are looking for jungle numbers, click here. Of course I would love it if you checked out all three. Sorry for the inconvenience of 3 items. Hope you all have a great day. Feel free to leave me comments if there is anything you are looking for that I can help with. I'd love to hear from you!

A Year of Writing in Kindergarten
Whew, missing in action is putting it mildly. The last couple of months have been crazy but hopefully I can find time to get back to my blogging life. For the past two years I have only taught math but starting next year I am going back to teaching all the subjects. As much as I love math, I am pretty excited about going back to teaching everything. I have a lot of work to do to prepare for the reading and writing. The writing is my biggest concern. I created this journal that I am going to use. We will be doing writing daily but I am thinking that once a week they will do a writing assignment that they will keep in this journal. At the end of the year they will be able to take it home and look back at the growth they made throughout the entire year in one book. I know the children will enjoy looking back through it and I'm pretty sure the parents will love it too.
