Today's Password

Hey, guys!  Susan and I are at it again!  We have another wonderful freebie for you!!!  This one is titled Today's Password.  I know some of you know what it is, but for those of you who don't....You post one of the mats outside (or inside) your door where it is highly visible to a sight word, letter, number, vocabulary word, ANYTHING on the mat and students "read" it every time they walk past (The password is.....)!  I make my kinders whisper it into my ear (SHHHHH!!! It's a secret), but you could just have them read it quietly.  We have made a pack that has a variety of the mats in it...there are several chevron themed ones, owls, and seasonal.  You can download them for free RIGHT HERE! We hope you like them. Please leave us some feedback if you like them, or want to make a suggestion or request. 

Thank you,

Forms At Your Fingertips!

Woohoo!! It is finally finished! Susan and I just posted our first paid item on Teachers pay Teachers!  Can you believe it???? I know that most of us are wrapping up our school year, but Susan and I are thinking ahead!!!  We have created a BUNCH of forms that we found useful in our own classrooms and hope that you can use them too!  All in all, there are 24 different forms for the busy teacher!  Some of my favorite forms include the Reading and Writing Conference Forms, the parent survey, the password keeper (cause you know I forget EVERYTHING), and the sub report.  We SURE hope that you can use these and hope that you check them out on TPT and leave us some feedback! Check out these pictures. Click HEREto check them all out! 


Every Form is in both Color and Black and White! AND, there is a fluency scale provided along with the writing process stages/definitions!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! I don't know if there are any professionals who work harder than teachers.  Most of us cry, sweat, and bleed that's why we do it!  Susan and I wanted to give you a little something.  Hope you can use it!  Remember, a child may not remember what you said or did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.  TEACH ON, my friends and know that there are MANY people who value and appreciate you! :)

Counting Collections...

Hey, guys! I have to say that Susan and I are soooo excited about our blogging experience!  We are loving this!  Guess what??? We have a new freebie for you!  How many of you do counting collections?  I love them! They are soooo beneficial in the k-2 classroom!  It helps children develop number sense including number sequence, cardinality, and place value.  It helps develop the foundation for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  I really feel like A LOT of mathematics can come out of these little moments!  :) Some of the Common Core Standards that counting collections covers are: K.CC.1-7, 1.NBT.1, 1.OA.1, 1.OA.5-7, 2.OA.1-2, 2.NBT.1-3, and 2.NBT.6-9.

HERE is the link on TPTs.  :) Let us know what you think!
