ImageStuff

I am a little late posting this, but I have just GOT to tell you about a fab company. I contacted Imagestuff asking about reviewing a product. I had read one of my friends post about them. I decided I needed them for Valentine’s Day.

This company was AMAZING to work with. I ordered them, and within one day they were shipped. When I got them, they said the wrong name. Sad smile I emailed them, and within TWO days, they were back in my hands with the right name this time. Great Customer Service!!! I wish I could show you how happy these kids were. Their faces were just too cute!

lower-price

They have lowered the prices, so take advantage and put another tool in your tool box for the end of the year!

I did receive a free class set of Bragtags for writing this post, but the opinions are 100% mine!

chicken unit2
We are using this pack I made, it has pieces for the 4 different anchor charts. I will be assembling them here in a little bit and will post pics.


These are the books that I will be using this week.


I was super lazy (as I am sure you have noticed from above) and didn’t make a center pack for this week. So I went to the professionals and am using Marsha and Deedee’s units.

Click on the pictures, it will take you to the links and the freebie!

March Madness

Hi Friends! If you know me, you know that I love all things Oklahoma State. And that includes Basketball. It is that time of the year, Big XII Championship and The Big Dance! So in celebration of Basketball being on TV 24/7 My friends over at Kinderland and I are having a March Madness Sale!

In conjunction with the sale we had a little Mini Swap! I got pared up with the always fabulous Nancy Messenger. Have you been to her store? I love me some Oodles of Doodles!

She not only is a fab teacher, but a super talented clip art designer, and can bang out an amazing blog design!
I got to review her March Homework packet. I use the term “got to” loosely since I have been using her homework packs since September.
There is a monthly schedule page. I keep this in the front of their binder. When they do their homework at night, the color or cross off the picture for the week.
IMG_0490
Then they have a weekly homework page. With directions of what to do each night.  When they do the homework they mark off on the page. I also use the bottom of the page to keep up with their weekly reading. They color in a coin when they read for 15 minutes.
IMG_0491
This is what a homework sheet looks like. There are super clear instructions, and it is in a spiraled order, so it can align to anyone’s curriculum. It also has one small assignment a night.
IMG_0492
Now my friend Nancy has allowed me to give away a copy and I am giving away a copy of my VroomVroom Intervention game! So jump into the rafflecopter and I will give one copy of each away tonight!

We are celebrating all things green this week! All centers are pretty self explanatory.
My writing center will have a little booklet that says “A ____ is green".’ We are going to make a bubble chart with things that are green. They will then use those and put them in a class book.

I have told you before about my “Now What?” centers. This are the games the kids can grab when they are done with their tub center. Make sure you click the pic so you can grab the freebie.
I will try to update this post with my printed and laminated centers for this week!
