OMGoodness! Okay, I hate to admit this...but I JUST realized I had a gmail account. I KNOW! I KNOW! How could I not? Well, I could call it a blonde moment, or a "brain spaz" since I just turned 50...whatever it is I want to apologize for not responding to all those emails! :)
I promise I will respond to you guys much more quickly now that I know I have this email account.
I'm so embarrassed-"laughing" through it though.

NO Snowdays Here!

Since we rarely see even a bit of snow here-I thought I'd add that winter feeling to my students' lives by combining our number work this week with these cute little snowmen . Use this snowy packet to order numbers, recognize and write numbers 1-20 and identify missing numbers 1-20. Great homework, classwork or even as an assessment piece.
Please check it out by clicking the snowmen!

Passing this link and post on from Mrs. Wills Kindergarten Blog. I think it such a worthy cause to help out our fellow teachers and students. Check it out!

It is hard to believe that it has been almost 8 months since the devastating tornado ripped through Joplin, MO.

This week I got an email from a very sweet kindergarten teacher from Joplin. Here is what her email said:

I teach in Joplin, which made worldwide news last May when our town was cut in half by an F5 tornado. Many of our elementary schools were destroyed or damaged, and as teachers, we have had a roller coaster year. I came from a meeting yesterday where many are struggling with the weight of all we are dealing with. My request is this: would you be willing to donate a created pack of your choosing to give away at a drawing at our upcoming district Kindergarten grade level meeting? The meeting is Monday and I am sorry for the short notice but I did not realize until the meeting how down everyone is feeling.

Well, of course, I said "YES!" and filled her email inbox with goodies.

Then I started to think (scary), I bet there are other teachers (besides kindergarten teachers) who could use a little love. Want to help? Here is how:

1. Send your TpT product or Teacher's Notebook to Erica
2. Then link up here

Wouldn't it be awesome if we filled her email with signs of love?
