TPT Sale

What I thought would be a nice leisurely week of planning quickly disappeared and instead I've been working my other job and have neglected all of the ideas that have been running through my head. My loss is your gain...

Since my TPT store is lacking many of the materials I was hoping to add this week... I'm offering a 20% off sale for the few things that are there.

Here is a brief look at the adorable pre-primer alphabet trains... set includes all 39 Dolch pre-primer words (a-you) and would be great for a variety of work work activities (alphabetizing, ordering based on number of letters) or for support on a word wall.


So if your students need additional work with tallies (up to 49) or you're working on pre-primer sight words, head over to my TPT store and add something new to your classroom repertoire.

In the meantime, I'll be outfit planning for next week.... any special outfits planned for the first day back (or am I the only one that does that)? I bought an amazing orange/red skirt from LOFT yesterday that just screams 2012. Excuse the terrible quality picture.... how would you style this to wear in the classroom?

Tally Birds on TPT!

My TPT is officially open (granted there is only one item and it is FREE)!

Click to check out my adorable tally birds.

How cute are they?

If you head over and download them please leave me feedback and a comment here so I can check out your blogs as well!

And so it begins...

2011 was the year of stalking teacher blogs....

I came across some amazing teachers, incredible classrooms and invaluable resources and as a result I made a resolution to join the blogosphere. Hopefully this will be my way of mingling with some of the ladies I have been inspired by this past year and will motivate me to make my own materials (rather than relying on TPT and my laminating machine) and give me an outlet to share them.

There are no promises that this blog will be as aesthetically pleasing as the ones I frequent, but my passion for what I do is just the same.

Here is a brief glimpse of the space in which I spend most of my time...

Welcome to my classroom (it is no longer this neat or empty) and more importantly to the chronicle of my adventures Teaching in the City!
