My Newest Products

It has been FOREVER since I have blogged. I'm so excited to share some new things.  I have been busy this summer making new products that I have desperately needed for my classroom.  

The first is Venn Diagram Topic Cards.  We were asked at an in-service to focus on the topic of animals and create a lesson plan.  My entire team had just purchased a Venn Diagram pocket chart from Carson Dellosa.  We wanted to be able to give the kids cards related to the topic and have them discuss and place them in the pocket chart.  While I was working on the animal topic cards I just kept going and added 50 more topics.  They can also be easily used on an anchor chart.  You can find the pocket chart and the unit below.

It is super cheap right now.  Marked down to $5.99.  I use magnetic clips to hang mine.  

This is the unit I created with 52 different topics to discuss and share.  It also includes a Venn Diagram printable to use after the lesson for assessment.

The next unit is something I have been using for years in my classroom. Originally we would draw the lines and write the words to make this journal. So primitive right? To think we didn't create with power point and drew our creations.  Ugg!  I added several new options to the original pages we made. You can design the journal yourself based on the needs of your little ones.

Thanks for stopping by.  I promise it won't be this long until my next post.

New Blog Design

Hi Friends, I am so excited to share my new blog name and design.  Courtney from Blogs Fit for a Queen was wonderful to work with. She created this adorable design and redirected my old blog and all of my posts.  Everything that was "pinned" from my old blog goes straight to my new one.  I can't believe how talented this young lady is.  Click on the button below to take you to her blog.  Check out all of her creativity there.

I must give credit to Sarah at Educlips. Love this sweet lady.  The bright and beautiful clip art used for my blog was a special set she made for a group of Florida bloggers.  We met up in the spring.  Isn't it precious.  She also created the adorable Shuttle taking off. The Shuttle was something specific I wanted for my blog because I live on the coast of Florida.  Growing up here I have always had the privilege of walking out into my front yard and watching the Space Shuttle take off.  We watched it take its last flight, which was extra special.  You can see my blog post pictures here.   


It has been a loooong while since I posted, but now that my blog is customized for me I can't wait to start posting regularly.  Customizing your blog to fit your personality really makes a difference when you 
open it up to post.  I love it now.  Thanks again to Courtney and Sarah for their amazing talents.  
Go now and make your blog extra special. 
I will be having a giveaway soon to celebrate my new blog.  Follow me here and on instagram for updates.

Meet Ethan~ a super hero and miracle.  7-year-old Ethan has been recently listed for a heart transplant at Shand’s Hospital in Gainesville, Florida.

The Winner Is and More Fun Finds!

Hey friends, thank you to everyone who participated in the Bloglovin giveaway.  I am so excited about all of my new followers.  I promised to reveal the winner yesterday but I was busy working on giving myself a raise.  Ha! Not really, we actually have been working on refinancing our house.  After changing from 6.9% to 3.5% it truly feels like we gave ourselves a pay raise.  Hallelujah! 

Okay, now for the big winner..... The winner of 2 items from my TPT store is Charleen S.   I will be contacting you today.  Congratulations. 

Now for a few fun items I found today at Hobby Lobby. 

Chalkboard/Dry Erase Easels.  They range in size from 3X5 to 8X10.
These would be great for center directions or for the kiddos to write on.

Chevron and Polka Dot Burlap Ribbon....Sooo cute.

Duck Tape from JoAnns.  Fun colors for the 4th of July and Summer.

And Finally, these sweet little fingers belong to my daughter.
This is our latest project, these are at Walmart.  They are little
paper squares "tattoos" that you cut, dip in water then place
on top of the nail, then do a clear top coat. 
These are little maps on her nails.  She loves them.

Have a great evening.
