Handwriting and Letter Practice Pack PLUS Beginning Sounds Phonics Printables

I am getting excited to start another year of teaching Kindergarten.  September 9th is my first official day back at school with students!  To celebrate the start of a new year I added a new Handwriting/Letter Formation Pack to my store and created a BUNDLE pack that includes the Handwriting/Letter Formation Pack with my best selling Phonics Printables (Beginning Sounds Pack).  If you don't already have the Beginning Sounds pack, I highly recommend that you get the BUNDLE for a steal of a price!  Everything shown is included in the bundle.

The best part of these packs is that they are completely differentiated and include different options...  You can use the handwriting/letter formation and beginning sounds printables for homework practice, center practice, or morning work.  Or just snag the BUNDLE of both packs for 50% off the entire cost (in honor of the back to school sale).  

Click on any of the pictures or clickable text to see the actual packs.

Keep reading to get more of a sneak peak of what is in these packs!

I hope those of you that have started your beginning of the year, are off to a great start!  Those that are yet to start, I hope that you are taking advantage of the fabulous back to school deals.  Happy teaching!

Classroom Labels {Neon Brights}

Being a primary school teacher comes with a lot of perks...

You get to see and experience the innocence of young children.. You get to do fun and cute activities with them .. You even get to use tons of adorable clipart (My favorite)!!!  YOU are part of the reason that children are shaped into the young beings that they are.  

Something that I have increasingly grown to believe is super important, is labeling different things that are in your room.  By doing so, YOU are helping the children in your class become familiar with print and associating items with labels!!!  

Enter these beautiful Neon Classroom labels!!  


The best part of these classroom labels are that in one pack you get over 65 cards AND 6 choices of printing options.  Choose between multi-color neon (as shown) OR any of only one of those color choices (pink, yellow, blue, green, orange)

Don't be alarmed by the fact that this packet is 94 pages long!  Just choose a color scheme and only 15 pages of printing are needed.  If you want to include this on a word wall, that can be done too!  Just print a second set!  If you need something special, let me know and I will try my best to add it in for you! 


                   

Okay - One thing is clear here - I enjoy neon brights and I enjoy labeling things!  I already started prepping these for my post Labor Day back to school start!!  


Obviously, I'm using the multi-color labels! 




Engagement Photos and Wedding Bliss ... Oh My!!!!

Wow!!  What a busy busy busy week it has been!!!!   

First of all - Rich and I took our engagement photos this past Wednesday, July 29th.  We had SO much fun taking our picture and I am PRAYING that they come out breathtaking and beautiful!!  Here is a little behind the scenes footage for you... (sorry friends, but that's all you are getting for now!!!)




Then on Thursday I had my brother's rehearsal dinner and Friday was his wedding!!!  SO MUCH excitement has been going on in life this week!!!!  I can't even begin to tell you!  Everything in life seems to have sped up and slowed down all at once (if that even makes sense)!  My entire week has been focused around preparations for all of the beautiful things taking place in life.  Here are a few pictures of the lovely bride and groom and a few pictures from there beautiful wedding day.  (I love my little brother sooo very much and I am so excited to have a new sister)!!
