I survived the first full week with my new kindergartners!! I have loads to share about our first week so stay tuned (look for a post about it later this week).

With all of the prep and excitement over the last 2 weeks, I feel like I have become so behind on everything that is happening in blogland!  I'm not sure I'll ever catch up...but....I figured a linky frenzy sounded like a good way to start.

My sweet friend Debbie is a Pinterest Guru.  She has started several Pinterest Party Link Ups.  If you are looking for some great boards to follow, make sure you check out her list.   Here are two that I joined up on.  (You can add your Pinterest address too!)

The lovely Jeannie from Kindergarten Lifestyle is hosting her latest "You Know When" link up.  I could probably think of hundreds of ways to finish this sentence but here are a few of the first ones that popped into my head!

Even though August is now more than halfway gone....I still have to link up with Farley's Currently!

Moving on....I purchased some fabulous things at TpT's Back to School Sale last week.  I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' to share some of my finds.

Love this new craftivity from A Cupcake for the Teacher!  It is super cute and I can't wait to make our little Johnny's next month. 

I know my kids are going to get a lot of use out of DeeDee Will's Sequence Games and Sorts for letters.  What a fabulous idea!  I plan to use this in my guided reading group this month.

I also purchased Babbling Abby's Crazy for Kinders! Back to School Unit.  We made her Jitter Juice this week and had a blast with it! :) I have her 2nd grade unit too (it's another great one!).

Phew!  That's enough link ups for one post.  If you made it this far....thanks for hanging in there! :)  Now that I'm settling into the new school year I think I'll be able to get back into the swing of things and begin posting several times a week again!  I'm finalizing my transition music template this evening so I'll be able to share it with you soon!


  1. Yay! Thank you for the shout-out {and the purchase}!!

  3. Thanks for giving the LinkUPs a shout out!! I'm convinced that the more we *find* each other, the better/easier our teaching and the easier to support one another.



Thank you for your comment!
