How to Help Your Child at School 

Once I became a parent my view on education completely changed. Not unlike other teachers who are parents… I started seeing things from both sides and wishing I could tell parents what I know to be true. Communicate. Most of the time teachers are more scared of you than you are of them. Especially new… Continue reading How to Help Your Child at School

Pete the Cat – Personalized!!!! 

Until I worked in an Elementary School Library...I had no idea how popular Pete the Cat really was. I believe it's because at the start of the school year most primary teachers use him in their lessons. The kids get to know his character and they instantly fall in love with him. All books "Pete… Continue reading Pete the Cat – Personalized!!!!

Hucklebaby Book Club – Fred Friday

Hucklebaby is really into "monsters" at the moment. So anything that looks like a monster (friendly kind) he wants to see...talk about...look at... Another weird reason I love this book...is my grandfather's name was Fred. It's such a simple name, but to me it is filled with an amazing amount of love. Fred is able… Continue reading Hucklebaby Book Club – Fred Friday

After Testing Fun – Peeps and Eggs

State testing...who doesn't love it? After the kiddos sit for hours in silence doing their absolute best on state tests (hopefully)...I like doing something fun and a little out if the ordinary with them.

Imaginary Animals Painting Project – Beezus and Ramona

I've started reading chapter books to my kiddos during their snack time. When I first started they weren't crazy about books with no pictures but they have slowly started telling me what they see in their minds as we are reading. Exactly what I wanted. The first chapter book I read was Pippy Longstockings. I… Continue reading Imaginary Animals Painting Project – Beezus and Ramona

My Very Own Teeny Tiny Pumpkin Patch

I already started brainstorming what I could get all of the members of my school's hospitality "club". Since I am in charge this year...I'm always thinking about what I need to do. ALWAYS. Food seems to be the easy go-to, but teachers are always on a diet. ALWAYS. I thought this could be a cute… Continue reading My Very Own Teeny Tiny Pumpkin Patch
