A Little Shopping Linky and Decor Packs

So...we are a little depressed after reading and looking at the pictures of how much fun everyone had in Vegas last week! Let's just say...WE WILL BE THERE NEXT YEAR!!!:) It looks like everyone had such a great time!
So...while everyone has been kicking back having fun Vegas style....we have been working and wondering where the summer is going?? is it already time to think about back to school!! However...with back to school comes...SHOPPING!! We just have to share some steals we  found! Can you say 80% off at Hobby Lobby!! That make us smile!!

Ok...these are not from Hobby Lobby but the Dollar Tree and the baskets are from Big Lots!!! I love these sand buckets and maybe we will use them as little trash cans and as pencil containers.
How cute are these....Hobby Lobby!! I think we will "flip-flop" through a good book in the reading center!! Best part...they were like $2.00 each!! Score!:)

Love the flip-flops....I plan to put them on the wall with the big flip flops and maybe on our door..."Look Who's Flip-Flopping into Kindergarten!! So the fish table...adorable and $3.00 WOOTWOOT!!! The big bucket...not sure what I am doing yet...however for $5 had to have it!! Any ideas...I thought about covering up where it says drinks and using it to hold my read aloud books for the week!!

How cute will the kids look wearing these while reading in the library!! Really...I had to have them! Thanks Dollar Tree!!:)
We are not the only teachers prove it there is a linky that we are taking part in!! Thanks to Owl in a Vowel Tree for hosting the party! Check out all the great finds! between all the shopping we have been working on new products!! Here is a quick peak at a few of the decor packs we have been working on!! They have everything you need to get your room ready for the year!!
Melon Headz...we are maybe a little addicted to these cute little kids!!
Here is our Peace theme pack...GROOVY! Love the bright colors!

And finally...our beach pack! Who doesn't love to at least pretend they are at the beach everyday!:)

We all know that one of the first things you work on in Kindergarten are names. We created this awesome pack that ties literature that we read at the beginning of the year to teaching kids how to spell their names! It is packed with some favorites! We are so excited to start this year with this pack!!:)

We are also teaming up with our blogging buddy from Good Enough Teacher for a Back to School Giveaway! There are some great packs that you could sure to check it out!:)

Throwback Thursday and Happy 4th!!

Happy 4th of July Friends!!

Before we head off to spend the day with our friends and families we wanted to get in on Throwback Thursday from our sweet blogging friend Cara Carroll at First Grade Parade!

We also wanted to share a few new products that we have been busy creating to help get ready for back to school!! We know, we know...who is even ready to think about that??? 

First, we added a few more word wall packs...:) They include all the Dolch Word lists k-3. They include 2 different size word cards and letter header cards perfect for your word wall or to make flashcards for review!!

We also finished up our Alphabet Sing and Read...
we love this!:)
 This pack includes one colored poster of the song for each letter of the alphabet (tune:  Bingo); a reader for each letter of the alphabet (includes dots for tracking, a letter coloring page, a writing page, and a sound sorting page); and pocket chart strips for each letter of the alphabet.  The pocket chart strips are used for each letter with cards to trade out the animal and letter.  Separate strips are included for the sound part of the song.  This packet includes 3 cards for each letter sound that can be used in the pocket chart to change the song or they could be used for sorting by beginning sound.

Now for the Throwback...We have not been blogging very long so it is a bit of a challenge to "throwback." This is from about April. We had the opportunity to participate in a Relay Recess at school. What a wonderful event and very near and dear to us since we had 2 little Kindergarten friends that have been dealing with this horrible disease! 

Original post was April 27th
Relay Recess... Play-day with a PURPOSE!!
This week we had the wonderful, heartwarming and very emotional experience of Relay Recess which is part of the American Cancer Society. It is similar to Relay for Life but it is geared for school age children. For the past 4 months, our school has partnered with the Cancer Society to raise money to help find a cure for Cancer. In the short period we were able to raise $3400!!! How AWESOME is that??? Each grade level had the opportunity to participate in the Relay Recess and learn different ways to prevent cancer. The whole program itself is very emotional, as we all know  someone that has been affected by cancer. But, for us, it was even more because we currently have 2 little sweeties in our grade level that are fighting this horrible disease! Throughout the year we have seen first hand the strength of kids and their families.What a wonderful way to honor them and their courage! It was a day that will not soon be forgotten! If you ever have the opportunity to be part of the wonderful experience, we encourage you to do so! :)
