Hey Kinder Friends,
Well the first day of school is getting really close! And now is not the time for last minute changes you your plan. But life gets in the way and you remember you have to be...flexible. Don't you just love when the situation calls for good old flexibility? As teachers we are so good at being flexible. We do it all day long in our classrooms so why would anyone expect anything different? But part of being flexible is actually being prepared.

So when I was told that Meet the Teacher had been changed to an Ice Cream Social, I was almost ready to go! In just a little bit of time I was back in the game. All I had to do was add a little bit of text to my printer friendly newsletter template and in a flash, I was prepared and flexible! So now I am off to prepare for the first few weeks of instruction in my class.

Making a few things for the classroom has actually helped me have things out and ready for the first week of school when I will be preoccupied with getting the year started off in the right direction. I am so relieved to have things on hand to be able to print and...go!

Meet The Teacher!

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Editable-Weekly-Newsletter-TemplateEdit-Print-and-Go-1341008


Hey Kinder Friends,
What a good day it was today to be able to spend it with new teachers! Just remembering my own first year and being able to share those feelings with other teachers really made me think about just how grateful I still am to be...a teacher. I am thankful to be able to still say I love my job and still can find the joy in it. But the nerves of the first day of school never seem to go away no matter if it is the first, first day of your teaching career or you are having the first day for the 15th time. I just can't believe it will be the 15th first day of school for me.

The other night I was thinking about Meet the Teacher night, that is fast approaching for me. I have been so preoccupied with trainings and presentations that I had given it little thought. I decided that I wanted to have something simple just in case parents and students drop by. I decided to give one of  my newsletters a try and see if I could make it work for Meet the Teacher. Before I even opened the newsletter to start typing, I was really struggling about what to write. When I opened the newsletter template, it just didn't seem so intimidating anymore. It looked manageable. I knew I wanted to say something about my teaching experience and I knew I wanted to share something personal. When I looked at the spaces provided, it seemed to help me focus because it needed to be short, to the point and sweet. Within about 15 minutes, I was ready to print. I was now feeling a little bit ready for Meet the Teacher, even if my room looks like it did the last day of school! My panic and twitch was starting to ease.  
I couldn't stop thinking that it was just too simple. It was just too easy to make me feel better about this upcoming day. I wondered if I should do something else because this came together way too easy for me. I decided that I wanted to set out a welcoming basket of apples. If the parents and kids sat down and ate the apples...great. And if not? I had some apples on hand for snack...no big deal. And as my mind wandered a little bit more, I came up with the rest of my plan. I am grabbing some framed pictures of me and my family and I am going to skip myself all the way to Kindergarten looking like I had this planned for days.

I even might have time to craft a wreath, write a first day of school letter and get my room ready for the first day of school.

Alphabet Rescue!

Hey Kinder Friends,
Right about now I need an alphabet rescue! I am sure you can relate. Thinking about letters at the beginning of school is what we all do. Can we ever get enough resources to use in class or send home with kids to practice? I seem to always need a little more. And I love things that serve as double duty for my kids. So one day I was thinking about an alphabet rescue and this is what I came up with.

You know in the beginning of Kindergarten every kid just wants to get their hands on the new supplies so Color And Write seemed to fit for the kids. We get that coloring itch out in the very beginning. My kids tell me they have never even once used a crayon until Kindergarten and it is a big deal! And you know one of my smallest goals this year is better handwriting with automaticity. So that when we become independent writers, someone can actually read it! So the Color And Write can serve up some double duty here. And last, I needed yet another go to resource that I could have on hand and print when I needed...in a flash!
Now I have a quick and printable resource that I can put in a center, make books with or send in take home folders or bags. And better yet, I have it saved on my computer and ready for the new kid who comes to school late and needs a little help.
I had to keep this alphabet adventure going because I was on a roll. Just one more! Every teacher knows kids need multiple opportunities to master something.

So there you have it!
From an alphabet rescue to adventure...wishing you the best year yet!
