& just like that I fell off the face of the earth....

My title of this post basically sums it up! Life got real crazy and got real crazy fast!!! After the death of my granddad and changes at work I had NO time to spend reading or writing blog posts. Now that things have slowed down a bit I am back to reading blogs and trying to catch up on all that's been going on in blog world! I'm currently enjoying  Bethany Beach, DE with family, my boyfriend and friends and it's been sooo relaxing! I plan on being back sometime this week (maybe) or when I return from vacation to share some pinterest inspirations and some of my own! 

Hope everyone has been enjoying their summer breaks, I'm off to enjoy some more Strawberry Colada's :)

Gone Buggy!

I can't seem to pull myself away from Law & Order SVU, Storage Wars or House Hunters tonight...it's just one of those night where I don't feel like accomplishing much. I did however just post a fun little bug mini unit that I plan on using with my kiddos in the next couple of weeks. Visit my TPT or TN shops to take a peak. First one to comment gets a FREE copy, just be sure to leave your email :)

I've also been given the Lovely blog award from several ladies and I promise I will get on that really soon. :) I also plan on visiting Christmas Tree Shops & the Dollar Tree this weekend so I will post any good finds. 

Happy Almost Hump Day! :)

Got Nothin'

Hello, Sweet Friends! I got nothing special for ya, sorry!
BUT I do have this super cute picture! Some of my sweeties made a rainbow out of lots of things from the classroom. SERIOUSLY! i love these kind of moments.

On another note....I'm still new at this TPT thing but the first 2 people who comment can pick ONE item from my Small TPT shop and I will email it to them. :)

Farm Mini Unit

I just whipped up a fun little farm mini unit! It is not too fancy but my kiddos often love the simplest things :) I hope that you can find something at my TPT shop that you can snag for your classroom. Here's a few sneak peek pictures of my farm mini unit :)

I decided to open up shop on TPT!  I am a newbie so bare with me for a while as I am just learning the basics. I would love it if you popped on over to check out the items I have. I am working on some BIG units that I hope to have posted in the next couple of days.

Hip Hip Hooray! It's the 100th day :)

Hello Ladies (& gentlemen?)

Yesterday was our 100th day of school and since I teach AM & PM Pre-K I got to celebrate it twice! I like to party but...let me just say I was exhausted afterwards! I've been fighting a sinus infection for a while so that makes for a more tiring day. Here are a few pictures from our 100th day! I'm going to go ahead and apologize in advance for the crummy quality of some of these photos.

 We Charted what we would buy with $100! This list makes me smile because my little's don't understand the value of $100. :) If you are noticing the 100 on the post it note...we went on a hunt around the classroom for the number 100 and this was just one of our hiding places! We also read this adorable 100 days of school book. If you have not read this one it's a must!
 We used the 100th day sorting mats from Jenn @ Finally in First to make our fruit loop necklaces. My kiddos did a GREAT job at counting by 10's.
 My afternoon class is a little younger so we didn't do the fruit loop necklaces and decided to count out 100 stickers and put them on a I can Count 100 things mat. :)

 I found these crowns last year from the Virtual Vine website and I decided to do them again! I used bulletin board boarder (that's a mouth full) to attach the crown...they were adorable!! I also had the students bring in a show n' tell that represented the 100th day! We had some really great show n' tells! Some students brought in 100th day shirts, some collected 100 items in a Ziploc bag and some created artwork out of 100 items.

Here's the mail it makes me....

remember that catchy little tune from Blues Clues? HAH. We've been busy talking about mail  and today we ended our mail unit by visiting the Post Office! We are lucky to have a post office literally behind our school playground! We bundled up and were off to send our families their Valentine's. When We got back we read this hilarious book called Mille waits for the Mail.

Here are a few pictures of activities we completed during our mail unit! I of course forgot to take pictures of our centers during this unit so just imagine cute mail centers. :)

 We practiced our sequencing skills with this cute little sheet!
 We made Postal Service Hats! You can find this template at Making Learning Fun :)
We charted things we could send in the mail, delivered mail in our pretend post office and practiced writing and reciting our address's too!

Tomorrow is our 100th day of school so I will be back with a post soon. Happy Tuesday Y'all!
