What I’ve been up to! ~Freebie~

I always seem to forget how hectic these last couple of weeks are.  For some reason I get this urge to purge…I need to empty shelves, throw away junk, give stuff away… you know the drill!
On top of that, I am trying to finish up memory books, testing, and of course keep my kids contained.
Here are a couple of the things we’ve been doing:
Our Grassheads!
 Cute, right?
Last summer I created a whole pack to go along with step by step picture directions to create and have fun with your own Grassheads! Find it here on TPT or click the picture below!
I also revised an oldie but goodie…a fun way for your students to introduce YOU to next year’s kids…I keep them and usually hang them up in the hallway to greet parents and kids on at 
Open House in August.
 …It has two versions, one for us girl teachers and one for boy teachers =) 
They had the BEST time describing me…apparently I do not like talking…
I yell when I am angry…and of course, I am nice and pretty! lol

 Oh, and in exciting news…look what I got today!!!  
(which only increased my need to cleaning and rearranging!)
Finally….a SmartBoard!!
Now if I just knew what to do with it! lol


  1. YAY for the Smartboard! I got mine 2 weeks ago and love it already! I'm with ya' though – I took my training 3 months ago (um…when we were supposed to be getting them) and I've forgotten half of it!

  2. Love your meet the teacher sheet! I had my students do something VERY similar (with a few additional questions because I have 3rd grade). It was SO cute to see what they said about me. Hah!

    Yay for your Smartboard! =) You will LOVE it.

  3. JEALOUSSSS! I had a promethean board and I swear I don't know what to do without it!! I get so sad when I get to a theme that I created something amazing for and now I can't use it because I don't have a board anymore 🙁

  4. @Jada: There was already paper on the board, so I left it….I haven't gotten up close and personal yet to see what it looks like behind there =)

  5. Hi Jennifer!
    Congrats on your SMARTBoard! So exciting! I've had one for a couple of years now and was terrified of it at first! Now I love, love, love it! While I'm definitely no expert, I may be able to help if you need it. (You can email me if you like kamp.linda@gmail.com) If at all possible, you might ask your tech people to give you the product code for their SMARTNotebook software so you can download it on your home computer and create lessons over the summer! Mine were more than happy to do that and it has been a life saver! Also, you can visit SMART Exchange and find loads of great (free!) resources there. Hope this helps! Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!
    good luck and enjoy!
