This is a freebie I created some time ago.  I printed it, laminated it and bound it into a book to "read" or "sing" in my class of kindergarteners!  Click on the picture to download!

I created another freebie today!

You can also use this for a formative assessment in your class.  It's four pencils with numbers.  You can print, laminate and place around your classroom for a fun "multiple choice" activity.  Download it for free by clicking on one of the images below!

I created a new freebie today!

This is a product that can be used for formative assessment in your classroom.  Just print them, laminate them and glue them to tongue depressors! Students can hold them up to show their understanding.  Grab yours by clicking on the picture below.

I really would love to get into constructing items for TpT.  Usually I just end up buying.  In my dreams I will eventually have a "real" store.

Until then, here's a freebie I created.

I print these out (with my contact information added) and then I laminate and put a magnet on the back  Then I pace them in a basket for parents to pick up during Open House or Meet the Teacher Day!

Here are a collection of freebies on the web!!

Here's a great freebie from I Teach Kinder to go with the fun book Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons!

Have you seen  This is the coolest website!  It's so easy to use.  I think I will even try it with my kinders!!!!  All you have to do is put the words in!

I can think of so many things I'd like to make with this site.  Here is something I created just fiddling around.

Summer Fun :) :)

Like many of us, I brought home several projects for this summer.  Here's a little one I'm trying today....running all of my scissors through the dishwasher!  I also snuck a couple of baskets in there!  Have any of you tried this?  I'll let you know how it goes!

Update:  I ran one load of in the dishwasher.  The scissors turned out like new!  I was a bit nervous about the crayon baskets as I wasn't sure what was gonna happen when the dishwasher got really hot on any crayon residue.  The baskets are cleaner than they have been since I bought them and my dishwasher is just fine!!!
