No Summer Vacation for a Teacher's Mind...

     I was shopping with my sister yesterday when I stumbled upon the cutest thing - Jet-Puffed StarMallows.  I’ve never seen them before but my sister started telling me about a great dessert she's made with them. 

     Well, my sister had to elbow me because I wasn't listening.    I was busy thinking, "We could use these to graph, to sort, to make patterns ..."  (Because even during summer vacation, isn’t that still how we think?)  I was actually sorry for a minute (just for a minute) that school is out and I can't use them for a new math center tomorrow.  Of course, I still rushed home and made a couple of math activities to have ready for next year.  Click below the picture if you’d like to download a copy.  Enjoy!

Yay - I Have a New Blog!

     I've discovered so many great ideas on other teachers' blogs over the past few months - It's so inspiring to see what's happening in kindergarten classrooms all over the world!  After getting my feet wet in the blogging world this year with a classroom blog, I've decided  it's time to try my hand at a teaching blog as well.  I hope to share as many great ideas with other teachers as they've shared with me. Stay tuned for tips, pics and freebies...
