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!

Love a Pitbull :)

Almost 99% of the people I meet while walking my pup love all over his big ol' ears and love on his cuteness. Then they ask his breed and take big steps back, calm down people just because he is a  Pit Bull does not mean he is going to bite your head off. Meet Jager, the biggest baby and the most loving dog I've ever met. 

Give them a chance! Love a Pit bull :)
Happy Friday!
