WOW time is flying by, I can't believe it is almost Christmas already!! My boyfriend and I are moving to Denver, CO the day after Christmas so this month has been especially busy for me!! I was recently blog hopping and found some great December resources on some other blogs and some great freebies!!

Check out:   This blog has some super cute freebie writing paper that I can't wait to use with my kiddos!! 

Mrs. Jump's Class has some really great stuff also!! I just love everything she sells on TPT. You can check out her blog here-

I haven't had a lot of time to work on TPT products lately but I'm hoping once we move and get settled I'll have some time! I plan to have a sale on my TPT products some time in early January.

I'm having a sale in my TPT store! It runs tomorrow (September 18th) through Saturday! Every product in my store is 10% off so please check it out :)

New pictures

I've been so busy lately I haven't had time to post anything!! We are finally getting the routine down and the kids are really doing great!! A few weeks ago our theme was "All about Me." Check out this super cute art project the kids completed! 
I just love this one because of the hair :)

Last week we talked about health and nutrition and the kids made these awesome apple trees.

This week we are talking about self-help skills. Today I had the kids practice zipping up their jackets, and tomorrow we are going to work on buttons, and then later this week we will try to work on tying our shoes! Monday we talked about helping out at home and how we can set the table. The kids made their own place settings, they turned out better than I expected!

This first picture was done by a child new to our pre-k class this year (he just turned 4.)
This next picture was done by a child who was already in pre-k last year, but didn't make the cut-off for kindergarten this year. (She will turn 5 soon.)

I've taken a few more pictures of my classroom to share. This one is a picture of the alphabet on our wall. I've had it so long I don't remember what website I printed it from, but I love it. The website allowed me to choose the colors for each letter and the pictures as well. All I had to do was print it, laminate it and hang it up! It still looks great several years later.

Here's a picture of the center tags I created for our class this year. Each group has an owl with their number on it that they stick to the tag of whatever center they want to play in. They know that if there is already another owl hanging there, the center is full and they have to choose something else.

This is just a pic of a painting the class did. The kids LOVE to paint :)

Here are some close-up pictures of the family drawings the kids did. We have been talking about our families this week. Some of them are really great artists!! (Much better than me!)

Last week we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and the kids created their own palm trees. How cute are these??

We've also been talking about our favorite things. We made a bar graph of our favorite colors, and as you can see purple was by far the most popular choice! We have a lot of girls in our class this year!

Start of the school year

Well we are now in the middle of our second week of VPK. Everything is going well so far! We have 31 kids this year (crazy, right?!) but they have all been very well behaved so far! We did an owl theme for our class this year because I have recently become obsessed with all the cute owl things available on TPT lately :) 

This is a picture from our class. I got the idea from pinterest of course!! It was so easy. I just laminated some cute paper and attached clothespins so that we could easily hang the kid's artwork. I attached a label to each clothespin with their names on them.  We have gotten so many compliments on this!!

This is our Birthday board! It looks so cute. I got this on Teacherspayteachers!

This is our "owl star behavior" chart which I also got from Teacherspayteachers. I absolutely love that website!!

I hope everyone else is off to a great start in their classroom as well!! I'll post some more pictures tomorrow :)
