about my adventures this month. I’m still trying to wrap my head around
everything I learned and figure out how to best present that information to
others. J I will be attacking my classroom this
week. I am on a mission to get it done. Next week I will be in training allllll week. I’m pretty sure my head will
explode! Then, I have four more days to pull said head out of rear and get back on
contract. Summer is OVER. Dun dun dunnnn. I remember saying in May, “I don’t think
I will travel this summer!” Bwhahaha! Yeah, totally didn't happen. I loved every minute of my summer though. I didn't create much but I spent a TON of time with my kiddos and that is
priceless! We had some pretty fun adventures. I have posted my Back To School Early Finisher's Tub though and will plost October's EFT tonight so watch my FB for the link. Click the pic for more details.

spend on their students and classroom. Luckily, I have my Kreative in Kinder fund to
use so we don’t have to eat ramen noodles for a month to pay for back to
school. LOL. (Thanks for making that fund possible!)
generously offered to give me $100 to spend in my classroom. That’s not the

book, there is no starting place for success.
was critical for my kids’ success last year. It taught them important things
like sharing, rotating, restoring classroom materials, but it also helped them
prepare their fingers to hold a pencil/scissors and shows me who is going to
need the most help with fine motor. Kids have to be pretty severe to get physical
or occupational therapy but there are things teachers can do in class to help
fix many of the small issues. You can click HERE to see some of my fine motor centers from last year.
I will post more the first week of school too.
wanted a small one), I will put beans, rice, noodles, sand, water, etc. in it.
You can hide letters, words, shapes, objects, etc. in it. Kids will LOVE it.
You could also put strips of paper with fun zigzag scissors and let kids
practice cutting in the tub. Anything you can do to get their little fingers
moving will help in all areas of learning eventually. J
