Groovin' Back to School and a Packet

I still have a solid three weeks until school starts {with kids}.  I'm beginning to get a lil' anxious because in the past my classroom has been set up by the end of July so I can truly enjoy the final days of freedom.  Not his siree bob!  They had to remove asbestos before laying the new floors in the lower level of the school.  So.  I've had to just sit and be patient...something I'm not very good at.  I stopped by my classroom the other day and it currently looks like this...

 Don't get me wrong, I love the new floor!  But I'm not a fan of the box upon box, upon get the picture.  In my 12 years here, I've never had to take everything down or box everything up before leaving school.  Needless to say I have my work cut out.  Nothing like a fresh start and it won't take me long to get my groove back.

 I spent time collaborating with Alessia Albanese to create our first packet for TpT.  It's filled with centers that are just-right for starting off your school year!  The centers cover basic skills such as number counting and identification, alphabet skills, colors, sight words and more! They are perfect for Pre-K, Kindergarten and 1st grade students who need to review these skills.Get yours now by clicking on the picture.

I'm off to the spend the day at the local flea market with Mima and my bestie!
Happy Sunday friends!


  1. My classroom is looking about equally as un-put together right now. I'm planning to spend a lot of time in it this week! Enjoy your school free Sunday!!

    Ps. I hope you got the e-mail I sent you last week. If for any reason you didn't please let me know. Sometimes I wonder if when I use the "reply to comment" via e-mail feature if they all go through :)

  2. Don't worry - you should see my classroom! It's a storage room each summer for the other KG classes who run summer camp out of them. It's a disaster! I plan on going in sometime this week just to see the progress.

  3. Love this packet! Can't wait to buy it!

  4. I saw your guest post over at Mrs. Albanese blog. As for what I do for me, when getting ready for back to school; I buy a couple of new outfits, get a haircut, and a mani/pedi. This makes me feel fresh and ready to take on the wonderful world of kindergarten! :)
