Peek at My Week & a Gift for You!

May 5, 2013
Happy Teachers Appreciation Week!! I just love this week and I’m planning on celebrating in many little ways…with all of you, my dear readers!
Today I’m linking up with the lovely Deedee over at Mrs. Will’s Kindergarten for her Peek at My Week Linky. Here are some of the major lessons and units my class will be working on this week (you can click on the covers to see more about each). I’m looking forward to starting Jen Runde’s American Lapbook and I know my students will love it!

I also have a little file to share with you all! I was looking back at my older posts from years ago and one of the favorite files was the Consonant Blends Chart (you can click on the green link to see the old one).
I decided to revamp it and make a new one to share, as a little way of showing my thanks and appreciation for you…
I hope it’s something you might be able to use in your class. I also hope that you have a wonderful, well-deserved week of appreciation! I will be back tomorrow with more πŸ™‚

    LOVE…LOVE…LOVE!! Thanks for sharing. We use the F&P Blend Chart (not in color though). I can't wait to try this out with my kiddos. I'm sure by the time I retire (which is in a LOOOOONG time) I'll have all of your charts and posters up in my room!!

    I love your visual plans!! It's fun to see what you are up to! Thank you so much for the blends charts! Your stuff is always so visually appealing! I don't know how you do it! I mean, I DO, but everything always matches so well and is so eye-catching. :O)

    Thanks so much!

    I absolutely love your work. It is so bright and colorful! I just graduated with my bachelors of science in teaching so I am beginning the great job hunt. In the meantime though, I'm really trying to wrap my head around how my future classroom will function! I've found so many of your products helpful! I have a fairly new blog and I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing!
