Currently, Made It

It's the beginning of the month AND it's Labor Day so that means my summer has officially come to an end BOO. One consolation prize. . . I get to link up with two of my favorite parties on the same day. Let's get this party started with Farley from Oh' Boy 4th Grade.  Here is a list of what I am currently doing.
I just posted about my friends last night here.  They have been so awesome these past few weeks as I adjust to teaching a K / 1 combo class.  Thanks for helping me keep my sanity.

Another one of my favorite things really is blogging and TPT.  I love how generous and sharing everyone in blogland is.  I have gotten so many great ideas from you guys ~ stay tuned to check out my new additions.

Speaking of blogland, thank you soooooo much to the ever so sweet Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for keeping me on track all summer.  Without your party I would have slacked on getting things ready for my class.  Here are some of my Monday Made It projects.
These were the welcome bags that I made to give to my kids on the first day of school.  Their little faces lit up when I passed them out.
I also just recently whipped up a new batch of colored glue.  In kindergarten we used this to practice writing our names and for letter formation.  This year I'm going to let my firsties use this to practice their weekly sight words. Click here to see how I made this glue it's so super duper easy.
Well I'm off to enjoy my day off.  If you want to join these parties, just click on the blue links above.
SHINE on everyone!
