Loving My Saturday!

Hi my bloggy friends!  I am sitting on my back patio soaking up some sun (it is 70 degrees here in Ga.) and LOVING this Spring feeling!  I was just thinking about what all I need to do in the next week or so.  I am blessed to have a FABULOUS student teacher with me until April and I will be helping her get materials ready for setting up her own classroom next year!  I was thinking I would help her out with a "Back to School" checklist for beginning teachers!!!  It would include items such as parent/teacher letters, student material checklists, student supply checklists, lesson plan templates and more!  I will share these with you all as I create them!  If you guys have any suggestions that you have found helpful for your student teachers in the past...I'd love to hear your ideas!  I love mentoring student teachers and want to provide her with as many resources as I can give her!  On another note...I wanted to share some of the comments I have received from some of my followers on TPT!  It is so cool to know that others are enjoying materials I have created for use with my students!  I love making my centers and tiered math tubs!  Please watch for more items coming out soon! Thanks!-Yvonne

Comments:  Sassy Cat Spending Spree Tiered Math Tub
I purchased this a few days ago and put it out for use this week. From the results of the pre-assessment I am VERY thankful this center is tiered :) You are ahead of the curve providing tiered centers based on common core standards! This is great for my second graders- low, med, high! :)

Another great activity pack! I love your products! I have purchased many and been very happy with them all! My kids love playing them and never get bored! The funny thing is they want to play them over and over! Thank you for all your wonderful creativity!

Thank you to those of you who give me feedback!  It makes me feel good to know that students all around the world are enjoying activities that I make for my own kiddos!  Thanks!-Yvonne

  2. Ha! Ha! I will Teri! :) The warm weather is one of the advantages of living in the South! The only thing that could be better is being on the beach somewhere in Florida! :)-Yvonne

  3. How great!! I will have to rummage through all my BOY stuff...eek! lol.
    And if it makes you feel any better, it's been cloudy here on the beaches in FL...ha!! though, I may make it to the beach some time this week!
    and p.s. - I do love your tubs too! :)

  4. jealous Jen! I would think any day in Florida would be great (cloudy or not)! I would move there in a heartbeat if I could talk my husband into it!:) I love Georgia...don't get me wrong (my family would get me because we are all bulldog fans) but there is something about crossing that state line into Florida that does something for my spirit! :)

    1. On another note...I really need to update all of my BOY (beginning of year) goodies so that will be my focus this week to get her set for her first year. Any suggestions or goodies would be much appreciated! Thanks!-Yvonne

  6. Make sure she puts together several ziploc bags with all stuff needed for a new student {name tags, locker tags ect.}


  7. You are so right Jennifer! GREAT idea! We just got a new student this past week and I was trying to get together everything needed for a new student! Thanks for the suggestion! I will make note of that on a BOY checklist! Thanks!!! Keep the ideas coming!!!-Yvonne
