Sweet Summer Freebie

Even though it’s beach season, some of my pals are teaching right now. So this little freebie is with them in mind. ABC order is the perfect skill to address vocabulary acquisition.  This little snippet is up in the corner of each page:

“CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.L.6 I can learn new words (general, academic, and domain specific). Knowing these words helps me with my reading, writing, speaking, and listening. This will help me get ready for college or my career.”

That’s why I have a whole pack of these pages to for all the holidays and themes. They are the perfect way to help little learners build vocabulary!

Sweet Summer Freebie to help young students with Vocabulary Acquisition.  Your English Language Learners will especially benefit from the picture of every word ! Of course, I am going to be using this baby my first week back as well !(13 more days until school starts). Until then, I am sleeping in, working out, poolside, beach combing, and sweet tea drinking! Sending love to you my sweet friends!!!

What happens when 800 people hug

You might be sick of Vegas by now, especially if you did not go.  But here is the thing, you can go next year. I did not play a single slot, but I stuck it rich in friendships.  Please join us for all future events! There is room at our table for you!

Vegas Blogger Trip I flew in Wed, and you all know that I don’t adore flying! But the Polka Dot luggage helped me feel happy. I deplaned and praised God for helping it not crash and met up with Natalie Crocket What the Teacher Wants, Lory Evans Lory Evans Page, and Kyrstal Plot The Good Enough Teacher to ride to the hotel. We caught up again at meet-up where 800 people tried to hug and talk all at the same time and I went deaf after 2 hours of screaming with joy!

Bloggers know how to have fun

Then we were off to Senor Frogs for lunch! This was the first time I got to hug some of my Primary Chalkboard girls.  The company was amazing! We all made some #I’mWithPaul heads on a stick and hatched a plan to have some fun! Do you see Paul photobombing?

#ImWithPaul

The friendships that this blogging world has given me have been the greatest gift! Annie Moffat From The Moffat Girls, Traci Clausen From Dragonflies in First, Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard, Frannie From Kindergarten Crayons, and Kristin from Teeny Tiny Teacher are all just darling! Lisa from Growing Firtsies and I were roommates and are just the best of Friends.

Mrs Jumps class and Teacher to the Core take over Vegas

We all know Deanna Jump.  But in her Keynote speech, we all got to know her a little more.  God has given her so much because she trusted him when she had so little. Deanna and I have met a few times, but I always enjoy her so much, I don’t want to be a nerd and take out my camera. This time I was nerd and we took a picture!

The TpT conference was amazing! I mean really! So wonderful!

Then it was time to hit the strip. This was after Lisa and I realized that we had been indoors for 4 days straight! I mean CRAZY! It was too fun!

I am super sad that half of the people I love, I don’t have a picture with! Either it’s on your camera, Lisa’s camera, or we were too busy hugging to take a picture! #IAmTakingAPictureWithYouNextYear

It was major Sadsville to say goodbye to the many many many people I love, but the way I figure, it’s only 11 months until we get to go back!
