Happy March!

Hello Friends!
Can you believe it's March already?!

I got the best thing for Christmas.
A Cricut machine!!!
Have you used one?
They're amazing!

I wanted to share some of the fun things I've made with it!
I've been vinyling everything!!

I found these little bowling pins at the Dollar Tree. 
I wish they had more than one set because I can think of so many other bowling ideas!

 I made these ones into Sight Word Bowling!  
I did all those tricky w words that my kids always get mixed up. :)
They're going to LOVE practicing them now!!!



I've seen this idea many times on Pinterest.
I don't know who came up with the original idea, but I like it!


I got this little push light at the Dollar Tree too.  
I'll be using it when I'm taking reading groups!
When the light's on, ask a friend for help.
Just a friendly little reminder not to interrupt. :)



My last project is for above my desk at home.  
I added some scrapbook paper in the frame and used the Cricut to cut the vinyl lettering.
Aren't they so pretty?!


I have a lot more project ideas already!!!
Do you have a Cricut?  What have you made with it?!

Valentine Bookmark Freebie!

Hi friends!
Are you snowed in like me?!
Here's a quick and easy little bookmark for Valentine's Day!


I included two colored verions - a girly one and one that's a little more boyish. :)


You could have your kids color and make their own bookmarks for someone they love. 


Oooor  you could save ink and print on colored paper!


So many options! :)
I hope you love them!
Happy early Valentine's Day!!!

Thank You Donors Choose!

If you haven't used DonorsChoose.org before, I totally recommend it!
If you don't know what it is, go check it out!

It's a place teachers can go to submit things they need for their classrooms.
iPads, listening centers, books, supplies...and so much more!
You type up a little explanation about how the item(s) would benefit your class.  
Then people (totally awesome people) can donate towards your project.  

Look what we just got for our classroom!!!


A brand new number grid carpet!
Isn't it beautiful?!?!
If only you could have seen the kids faces when they saw it. <3

Not only is it the perfect size for our class meetings, 
but it makes math a MILLION times more fun!

We've been playing all kinds of games on it.  
Skip counting, adding, place value practice.
It's even become our latest math center.  
Giant Race to 120?
YES PLEASE!


It's the greatest carpet ever!

So thank you DonorsChoose.org for making math waaaaay more fun!
