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! :)
