Free Father's Day Book

It will be here before we know it! I created this little Father's Day booklet (it's 18 pages) for you to print out and have your kiddos fill in.........not only is cute but what a GREAT memory maker....I"m sure there will be laughs in years to come at some of the things the kids come up with!
You can get your copy in my TPT store.

An Aussie version of this book will be available soon too (even though I know your celebration won't be until September!).

Coming soon.........the "I can" series

Hi everyone,
I know I haven't been blogging too much lately....there are LOTS of reasons for that but I'm excited to say that ONE of the reasons I've been a little MIA is this:

My "I can" series! I have spent a LONG time trying to organize it (and so far have only done the vowels) but this is going to be the K4 curriculum I'm going to use with Channing. I wanted to try and incorporate some science, imagination and fun! The series will also included Bible verses to learn each week.

I haven't started it with him yet but I plan to in the fall - I'm hoping to get all of the letters done before I begin. Once we complete a letter, I'll post about it and offer some FREE downloads for you.

I've also been working on some things to sell in my "Teachers Pay Teachers" store. As you know, we're planning for a BIG international move soon and I'm praying that by selling some things it'll help pay for our shipping costs. Look out VERY soon for my first unit that will be for sale ......... CIRCUS!

Looking for a great teacher gift?

It's Channing's last day of "preschool" on Thursday (he goes on Tuesday/Thursday for 2 hours).......his teachers have been great and I was looking around for a cool gift for them when I stumbled upon this post.

I knew I had to make them (because it's something I would love to receive from someone), so I did! They were super easy to make and the most expensive part was the shadow box!

I hope they love them :-)

If you're looking for some WONDERFUL preschool/tot packs, you should definitely check out Dawns blog called Our Little Monkeys. Dawn has recently started creating some packs for her son and has been kind enough to share them! I have to say that I'm pretty amazed by not only her great packs but the fact that she has two little guys and a gorgeous newborn daughter (and still has time to create!)........way to go Dawn!

Here is a tool pack that I know the little guys in your house will LOVE :-)

And a pizza pack that will make your mouth water............

This is her adorable baker pack!

And this April showers pack is too darling.............If you hurry over there, I saw that Dawn posted an ice cream pack too (just in time for all the nice weather we've been having at our place).
