About Me

I am in my sixth year teaching kindergarten and absolutely LOVE what I do. I am so inspired by all of the wonderful teachers and their great ideas in "Blogland", I am hoping that I can give back :).

Hello there friends!  When I return from track out I am thinking of changing the way I do math.  I have noticed pins on Pinterest that refer to a management system that is similar to the Daily 5 called BUILD. I am having a hard time finding more information about this program.  So far I have not been able to find a book or official web site, if you know of one, please let me know!  In the meantime, I have found several helpful blogs so I think I am going to go ahead and get it started when I return from track out!  I made these posters to label each bin.  I can't figure out how to embed an image of the google doc, BUT if you click the link below you should be able to access the posters :)

You can check out more BUILD information here:
Cassie's blog is full of helpful information :)

Track Out!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I teach at a year round school and I am now "tracked out" for the next week.  I am looking forward to some major R and R as well as a trip to Arizona to visit some friends.  I am also hoping to use my free time to create some more fun things for my classroom!  I use the Daily 5 literacy framework and I NEED new sight word Word Work activities.  What sight word list do you use?  I always say, it would have been GREAT if CCSS created a nation-wide sight word list that we all could use!  Anyways....I spent this weekend working on my first Teachers Pay Teachers Product!

You can click the picture above to check it out!  I have also uploaded a FREE Primary Writer's Checklist :)  Let me know what you think!
