Leap Day Sale

I have been workings o hard this week getting stuff to put up on Teachers Pay Teachers! I made a “there Was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Clover” book. (Sorry for the blurry Pic!)


Then I made a CVC I have…Who had game!

i have who has cvc

Then I made a 4 pack of St. Pat’s day centers! If you have noticed that all my centers only have 4 centers, it is because I only run four centers at a time.

Well I am off to bed! It is storming here, my FAVORITE time to sleep!

Don’t forget, I am having a 20% sale, and TpT has their 10% code!!

Happy Shopping Tomorrow!!!

I have been on a roll tonight! I made a sight word book. It is only $1, and it has a fill in the blank book for the kiddos and a big book for the teacher :)

see book

I also revamped a set of centers. You can click the picture, and for a short while it is on sale for $4 on TpT.


I also took one of the centers, changed the clipart to meet some TOU and it is now a freebie. I am not technical enough so, if you click the picture it will take you to my TpT store. You can download it for free there Smile


I have GOT to go to bed, I am so tired. But of course, a College Leadership is having a conference here too. I forgot how much I hated living in the dorms!

What a Day!

Holy Cow Batman! What a day I have had! Talk about a whirlwind! Started with Jack Hartmann getting my heart pumping! I know you are going to be super jealous, so…eat your heart out!


Yes that is me and Jack Hartmann!!! *Add Childlike Scream* My kiddos are going to go nuts when they see this picture! I am sure I will hear many a chorus of “Mrs. Hoffer, WHAT are you wearing?!”

Then I listened to some awesome presentations. I can’t wait to get back to my kiddos to implement them!

I am so tired, I think I am going to fall asleep mid post. I will let you know tomorrow how much fun I have Smile

Also, If you are just joining us from Color Me Kinder, WELCOME.

Kindergarten Conference

I am laying in a hotel, and can’t wait for tomorrow. I get to meet some of the leaders in Kindergarten Education! I am at SDE’s Oklahoma Kindergarten Conference! I came last year, and I am patiently waiting for it to start tomorrow. Like Christmas, I am going to bed early in hopes it will be here soon!!

I will try to update, but I will be so overwhelmed! Have a good rest of the week!

Sunday Funday :)

I just did not know what to do with my self today! I have two weeks of center stuff printed laminated and cut out. That NEVER happens. Usually I am still cutting out Monday as center time starts!

These are my centers for next week.


Forgive the random stickers! I couldn’t find anymore stars. They have to match the lion dots to the lamb numbers, then fill in the ten frame.


The kiddos have to segment the word, and put the letters into the correct order.


Read the room. My kids LOVE this center!


The kids have to segment the word and write down the ending sound. This is a concept we are really struggling with, as you can tell by the repetition. This is also a freebie in my TpT store.

I have a ton of things going on this week. I am going to be gone on Thursday and Friday for Oklahoma’s Kindergarten Conference. I AM SOO EXCITED!!!

Is anyone else going? I would love to meet some fellow bloggers while there!

Have a good week!

A look back and a leap forward

We read “One Small Mouse” in our Reading Series. We had previously read “A Bed for Winter” while reading, I had a “Ah Ha” Moment that we could do a Venn Diagram. Soooo, I whipped one! Look at how cute this little guy did!one little mouse

I especially love the green wings on the bee :)  And look at that cute red squirrel. I must have listened when “Officer Hofficer” (as my kiddos call the hubs") was stuffing one!

I am so bad at taking pictures. Here is some of my response sheets from Valentine’s Centers. (I had to catch these as they were going out the door Friday afternoon!)


Welp…Officer Hofficer just got home, so I will be back tomorrow afternoon to post a preview of my “In like a lion…Out like a lamb” centers for next week. Also be on the lookout for a freebie center.

Ending Sounds Center

Happy “Valentimes” Day

Yesterday was a great day! We had such a great day. My little “Love Bugs” had such a fun time doing their centers. I think if I heard “I love you Mrs. Hoffer” once I heard it fifteen million times. I was so tired I forgot to take pictures. My “love bugs” seem to have given me a bug. I had to go home sick today. Yuck!

On a good note, I got one of my weeks of centers done for March.

1st Blog Post

Well we are going to try blogging.  This week is a short week. We have Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday and Friday. So there will be a lot of assessments going on this week. I might throw a couple of these Super Bowl centers in this week.

We started working on if we use c or k in the beginning of words.

We are always working on real or nonsense cvc words. The kids roll the dice and make words. 

I am LOVING these centers! I have so much fun making these for my kiddos. I am going to sign off for tonight!

Good night from my little Okie corner!
