I arrived home today to find a box from amazon and the special key in my mailbox signifying that I have a package.
I heart getting mail and receiving packages, so getting not just one, but two in one day was a fantastic treat.
I feel like I have been buying stuff for my classroom left and right these days, but it's all of the good of the kiddies, so it is what it is.
In box #1 I got these...
Sunny posted about them a few days ago and when I saw that they are geared for grades K-2, I had to have them. I am a little disappointed that the pages are not actually in color like the pictures show, but I will definitely make copies of the pages rather than letting the kiddos use the originals so I guess that really doesn't matter. They can color the pictures in themselves. No biggie.
In box #2 I got these...
I am particularly excited because they both come with DVD's!
Tired of reading PD books? Watch the video!
I have only just browsed through them so far, but both books look like they have a lot to offer! I am excited to read them cover to cover this summer!
I also picked up these for our teen number practice lesson tomorrow...
And, I already divvied them up for table groups with exactly the same number of markers in each bag.
We have been working on drawing teen numbers by making groups of tens and then extras, so I thought using stampy markers would be an oh so fun way to practice that some more. The Teen Number video was a huge hit today and I think that it will really help my kiddos remember that teen numbers can be broken up into a ten group and then additional ones. They were seriously rockin' out and doing some funky moves to the hip hop beat.
Oh, and then there's this recent purchase from TJ Maxx (Can I get an amen for TJ Maxx?!)
Love that place!
If there ever was a perfect mug for a Kindergarten teacher, this would be it.
I just wish it was filled with steaming coffee right now :0)
PS. My lovely teaching partner has started a blog of her very own so please visit and give her some bloggy love! This would be the very same teaching partner that I spend much of my lunch time chatting with if that gives you any clue about how great she is!
