Veteran's Day Freebie

Hi everyone! I'm back in the classroom with all its hectic glory! I was nervous about coming back after maternity leave, but I got into the swing of things quickly! Veteran's day is coming up this week and I wanted my students to have a few writing prompt choices. Have your students color the borders and clip art, too :)

Back to Work and TPT Sale

My maternity leave is coming to an end, which makes for an emotional week for me. I've been dreading this. I've been brainstorming how I can stay at home and quit my job. Downsize? Cut our cable and sell a car? After all of this contemplating I came to the conclusion that I need to go back to work. This isn't just for me, but for my daughter as well. I want her to look up to me and see the difference that I am making in children's lives everyday. As fellow educators, you know that this is one of the most special jobs one can have. We don't make a lot of money, so sure, I could probably survive after quitting. At  this point in time, I don't think it's the right decision for me or my family. I've spoken to many friends and family as well as cried to my husband how I can't leave my baby girl. It's a hard decision, but this teacher has got to get back to work :) Once we get into a routine again I'm sure I'll be okay! All mothers go through this, right? :)

I love my job and am excited to get the new school year started. I'm nervous about coming into my classroom after other rules and routines have been established. I will do another post a few weeks after I go back and give you all an update on how it went and tips for returning after maternity leave.

So because this is my last week on maternity leave, I'm throwing a sale for fun! My entire TPT store is 15% off. Click HERE to get there! I hope you find something that you like :) Check out the freebies, too!

*The sale will run from October 3rd through October 5th
 
Here is my daughter, Bailey Rae. She was born on July 26th, 2015.
 

Have a good weekend :)

Multiplication Freebie!

Hi everyone! I was due with my baby girl on Monday and STILL no baby! So I needed something to do to pass the time. I created a multiplication freebie for all of my teacher friends. It's up on my TpT store now! You can grab it HERE!

My third graders struggle with mastering their multiplication facts so I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to get them engaged in the process. We play lots of multiplication centers so I need to have a good supply of materials so they don't get bored of the same old games. This center can be played a few different ways. I've included a cover page, directions, and 44 facts. Let me know what you think!

Back to School Already???

Happy Summer Break!!! As I'm preparing for my maternity leave, I wanted to get something made up for my substitute to do with the kids for the first week. This packet can be given to almost any elementary grade level, although it might be a tad too easy for 4th and 5th grade.

Check the product out here at my TPT store!

End of the Year Sale!


Happy Friday!

My entire TpT store will be 10 percent off from May 29th to June 1st! I am so excited for summer break so I wanted to share my excitement with you. I will be working hard over the summer to add more products to my store for use next year. I will be on maternity leave until October so that should hopefully give me some more time :)

Check out my store HERE!

Also...I've opened an Etsy shop! Ever since becoming pregnant I've been searching for printables to decorate the nursery, gender announcements, and all other things baby! What I didn't realize is that I can make those things right in my living room...so I opened a shop up to share what I've created :)

Here's a little peak at what my Etsy shop has to offer! Head on over and let me know what you think!
