Okay...I am out of here and going to Disney tomorrow!

Okay...this is not teaching related but is anyone else out there going to the Disney Royal Family 5K this Saturday!  I am so excited!  Tomorrow I am hitting the road with five other teachers from my school heading to Orlando for a much needed girl's weekend getaway!   We are SOOO looking forward to some R&R time hanging with Mickey and Minnie!  Would love to know if anyone else out there is signed up for the 5K race at Epcot or possibly the half-marathon!  If any of you guys have participated in this race in the past...what did you think?  We are so excited to get away for a long weekend and take some time for ourselves.  We made t-shirts for our group to wear in the race!  Here is a map of the course we will be running.

Download your March Goodies Early!

Looking for some leprechaun fun???  Get an early start on your St. Patrick's Day activities and download my latest freebie I just posted on TPT!  Look for my..."St. Patty's Day Word Wall ABC Order!"  I plan to use these Word Wall cards not only for an ABC order activity, but for Writing Workshop as well.  I would LOVE for you all to look at my latest center packet..."St. Patty's Day Math and Literacy Centers!"  The skill levels in this packet are perfect for second graders at this point of the school year and third graders who needs extra practice.  Click on the pictures below for what all you get with both teaching packets!!!  Thanks and let me know if you have any questions! :)-Yvonne

I am so excited about Valentine's Day on Tuesday!  We will all have "sweet fun" all day long with candy graphing, cookie fractions, and more!  I hope you all have a happy Valentine's Day with your little sweeties!  Keep watching for my March Math Journal Prompts coming out in the next week or so.  I am working on those along with BOY (Beginning of Year) activities for my student teacher!  Thanks-Yvonne :)

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! :)

                 Valentine's Day Centers and Activities:
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
