This is a well-loved book in my classroom! Typically around 25% of my students are ESL learners. They love to hear those Spanish words and correct my pronunciation!🤣
This is a really cute book to start celebrating those language differences immediately!❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Our go-to super easy 4th of July shirts! 🇺🇸We threw these together last year and I wanted to give you a reminder in case you want to try them with your littles.
I just used acrylic paint and painted each girl’s hand first before they pressed it on the shirt. (Don’t forget to lay cardboard inside.)
Then I let them make fingerprint “stars” using silver glittery paint. I used round sponges to paint the red on. This was easier than trying to make perfectly straight red stripes.
Will you be making these this year? Let me know!❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
I’ll be sending this freebie out to newsletter subscribers this week! 🎉 Make sure to sign up on my blog if you haven’t.
Keep an eye out for these bubbles on clearance. You can usually buy a 6 pack for $3.88 at Walmart but may find them even cheaper if you are watching for them.
I give these out after the first day and we take the last twenty minutes or so to go outside and blow bubbles. They love it! I also think these would be so cute in bags to send home if distance learning continues for you.
I’m going to do my best to be helpful for you guys as we all think about the next school year. What else would you like to see? Tips for distance learning, more hands-on activities to send home, ideas for arranging a classroom with new safety guidelines? Anything else? Let me know! ... See MoreSee Less

Heidi is cheesing 😁 about today’s giveaway! We are giving away this Highlights Hot Dot’s Set which is similar to the Pete the Cat set on Monday.
The 🦉 is so cute!
The pen is self-checking which makes it really engaging and something students complete during small groups. I love the cards included with this one.
