Instagram!

Hey ya’ll! I am popping in real quick, to let you know that I switched my Instagram over to mrshofferspot. So go look for me over there!
Teacher Talk Tuesday
I can’t wait for the fabulousness to start on Tuesday. Some of you might know, I am obsessed with Instagram, and just love following people and the conversations over there. But because some of my friend encouraged me to stop posting teachery stuff on my personal insta, I made a new one. And it looks kinda lonely.

Mrs. Wishy Washy

I have loved Mrs. Wishy Washy for a long time!! So when Hameray Publishing contacted me to do a review for they I sent them an email that said yes! so quick that I had to go back and send them another email with all my details!
They sent me these two amazing books, (I have not been compensated for this post, but they did send me the books to give my honest opinion on).
Joy Cowley is an awesome author! The kids enjoyed the books very much, the pictures are just as awesome..  I would love to have 5 of each book to put in our guided reading library. I did put them in our library (even though they are not AR, I bet they will be soon) and the kids fought over them during center time.

(Ignore the pictures on my bed, I forgot to take pictures while I was at school!)
I am sure your kids will love them just as much as my kids did. Head on over to Facebook and nominate a class to win 90 new titles, Finger puppets (How Cute?!) and CDs.

Whats Going on In Kindergarten

I am sorry I have been so absent lately my friends. With Hubby’s grandfather’s passing and State Assessments, you can only imagine what my life has been like the last three weeks!

But I am back and ready to share what is going on in Kindergarten.  Last week I was only at school for 3 days, so I did what any teacher does, and headed to TpT to grab some units. I bought this pack from Miss Kindergarten:
