Here is my new product I made for TPT. I made it to go with the beginning of the second grade Treasures reading series. It can be used even if you don't have treasures. I was trying to take a picture of the center and the kitten decided to tear my stuff up.

Five For Friday


1. Here is my behavior board for the year.

2. Have you ever had a rainbow cone? It is the best! 

3. Teachers went back to work on Tuesday this week. We had professional development this week. The first day they could not get the technology to work. They let us go back to our room and work. They never let us do that. On Thursday we had a team building activity with our other building. We went bowling in Chicago. They had us bowl and fed us very well. They also bought shirts for each team and gave out awards. 

4. Today was the first day with students. They left early at 1:00.  The copy machine wasn't working. I think it has a gremlin inside it.  I was lucky enough to get our secretary to copy some papers for me. We did some of the papers from my back to school pack on TPT. They did the word search and then played back to school bingo. They really liked the bingo. 

5. Last night I went out to get something from my car. The kitten followed me and got his tail stuck in the door. Plus someone was walking their big dogs and he saw that and freaked out. I felt so bad and was worried his tail was hurt. He was alright and here he is shortly after the incident.

Five For Friday


1. I  made this for my guided reading groups. The clothespins will have the students names on them. I can easily change the groups around. The silver things at the top I found at Michaels for 1.50 on clearance.

2.  This is my word wall. I made the abcs and they are for sale on my TPT page. I am trying to decide if I should section off the letters. What do you think?

3. These are my two new babies!

4. This is the kittens crazy mom. 

5.  Tuesday is the first day of school for teachers. Friday the students come.

My Room

I have been working hard all week on my room. It was a big mess! I am trying to get organized. Here are some pictures of before and after. I was just working on the shelf.

Here is a picture of one of my boards with the colors I am doing.  Nothing on there yet! I am taking my ABCs down. Half of them fell of in the summer.
