My updated smartboard calendar is now available in my TpT store for $5! I have added some activities to correlate with Houghton-Mifflin Harcourt Math Expression daily routines as well as updating the monthly pages and adding song links for weather, days of the week, and counting to 100. If you need an easy calendar to use on your smartboard, check it out!

WOW! The end of the year was a busy one! I am surely going to miss this class...13 sweeties! This is my first full week of summer vacation (since I had ELA curriculum writing training 3 days last week), and I'm already looking towards next school year. Among my to do's for school this summer is to reread The Daily 5...might I actually try it this year?!...and read and follow the book study for The Next Step in Guided Reading that Freebielicious is hosting. See the theme? I'm going to focus on perfecting (or getting as good as I can get) my guided reading and center/workshop/daily 5 (whatever I end up doing & calling it!) block. I will also be piloting Lucy Calkins' writing program which I am very excited about since that's the subject where I feel I am the weakest. AND, I want to try out math and ELA journals with my kinders...which leads me to my freebie! Math and ELA journal covers for composition notebooks, visit my TpT store if you're interested.
