Pumpkin "I See" Counting Book

Looking for the perfect little pumpkin counting book? Look no further! 

Choose to have your students trace the number... OR

Have them write in the number by themselves.
The books are easy to print off and don't use too much color ink. I made this book because I not only wanted to incorporate counting but the sight words "I" and "See."

Thanks for stopping by!

The Purple Box

Meet fellow TpT'er Stephanie Higgins of The Purple Box! Stephanie recently opened her store and already has loads of elementary teaching resources in both French and English! Check out her free colour charts! I love how simple and easy to read each chart is. Great for new learners!

How cute are those color shoes?? I'm also a big fan of her Visual Schedule Cards. These would have looked awesome when I was in french class way back when!

Though Stephanie is new to TpT she has plans to add back to school teacher packs, seasonal theme packs, curriculum works, clip art and more within the next couple weeks! Her products will be both in French and in English. Be sure to follow her page so you don't miss out! Stephanie is also participating in the teacherspayteachers one day Back to School Sale happening this Wednesday, August 20!! Don't miss it!

Puzzle Storage

I have a couple puzzles that the kids have a difficult time closing properly. They end up jamming it shut and bending the cardboard flaps. So, I decided to use these Target Sterlite containers instead! Easy to open and easy to see what's inside. I also took a picture of the back of the box and taped it to the top so that kids could use it as a reference in putting the puzzle together. Easy peasy!


 What storage tricks do you have to share?

What's in My Teaching Bag? Winter Edition

I try to keep it minimal. I'm currently working as a SpEd para professional so I don't need to carry around lesson plans or papers to grade. I carry the same stuff around that I would to the mall or errand that I do to work. Once I get back in the classroom as a teacher I will edit and add to my bag as necessary. Until then, here are the details:

Michael Kors Kempton Nylon Bag in Black

I keep my ID badge and Yes To Grapefruit lip butter in the front pocket for easy access. 

Aerial view.

Inside I have a pair of gloves, my wallet, a mini cosmetic bag, trail mix, Clif bar, tinted lip balm, fruit strips, Kleenex and sunglasses. 

My mini cosmetic bag holds a pen, hand sanitizer, Advil, lip butter, cough drops, Nivea hand cream and a Crystal Essence deodorant wipe. Just in case!

What do you carry in your teaching bag?

A Year Ago Today

Last year on this day...

I just figured out how to delete useless apps like NewsStand, Stocks, Game Center, etc.! All those apps that I don't use and thought I had to keep. Check out this link to see how to do it. It's really as simple as going to a website which allows an X to appear on your apps and clicking on it.

Future reference, once you download a Software update all those apps you deleted will return and you will have to go through the process again. Be prepared and save the website to your phone's home screen.

Anyone else feel accomplished after de-cluttering your iPhone apps? :)
