Come and Join the fun- The 2011 Ultimate Blog Party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

This is my first year at joining the fun over at 5 minutes for mom and their "Ultimate Blog Party". How fun! I am so excited about checking out some blogs and meeting some great moms (and hopefully making some new friends too).

For those of you that have stopped by from the party, let me introduce myself:

This is me (and my darling hubby)! I'm Michelle and my blog is all about creating fun things for you to do with your little learners. I am an elementary teacher who currently lives and works at a residential school - (although right now I'm not teaching - I'm "house parenting" with my husband. we have 12 middle school boys that live with us and our own two little boys).

I LOVE being creative but HATE the mess that this usually entails so I decided to teach myself some graphic skills and found that I REALLY enjoy sitting at the computer (once my two boys are sleeping) to create some free units of fun! What a huge blessing to be able to create yet have no mess to clean up! My latest unit is a SPRING unit which you can check out here. Also make sure you check out my printables page as it has all the other units I've completed too.

I also began doing a state study with my preschooler (and two other blogging friends) which we call "Trekking across The States". I provide printables and ideas for hands on learning that you can use with your own little ones. You can check out my "Trekking" posts here.

I can't wait to check out your blogs and meet some of you amazing moms! If you haven't joined in the party, click here to join in the fun!

I'm stopping by from the UBP. Wow...14 boys. My son's a handful. And I only have one! He will be in kindergarten so I've been just concentrating only the ABCs and numbers. I like the ideas about learning the states. I'll be sure to visit often.


Lovely to meet you through UBP. This is my first year and I am enjoying finding so many great blogs, like yours.
