What a Sunday!

Just being a little reflective tonight . . . it's going to be a busy week with classroom set up, inservice, meet the teacher day--and more.  Tonight I feel grateful for all that this blog has brought me . . . from new friends to a greater sense of reflection and, I really believe, better instruction for my students.

I felt super recognized today when I was chosen as Teachers Pay Teachers "Featured Teacher" in their newsletter and as a result got a bunch new followers and saw lots of some of my favorite resources landing in the hands of more teachers.  It was a very satisfying day!  To celebrate, I am toying with the idea of a blog redesign!  What do you think?  Should I invest in a new "look"--I am approaching my one year blog anniversary.  Maybe it's time!

I do also want to remind you of the great deal I am a part of over at Educents.  The bundle is SUCH a bargain--the product I have included, my demand writing prompt bundle, is worth $9 on its own--and the bundle is a steal at only $30.  Now Educents is offering a $5 credit on a future purchase if you spend $25 or more.  Here is the link one more time if you haven't had time to check it out.  It's only for sale for a few more days.


Also, I finished my first math centers resource this weekend and I am SO excited to get it printed off to use in my first unit on place value.  It is geared for grades 2-4 but my friend is going to enrich her top first graders with a few of the activities.  The five games are differentiated so you can adjust the playing level depending on your students' needs.  Here it is!


Have a wonderful week, everyone!
