ABC...123...Dr. Seuss

When I began teaching kindergarten last year, my wonderful mentors handed me a 
box of alphabet and number books and explained what they had done for years.

Each week, our school sends home one alphabet book and one number 
book with each student.  They can read these books at home with
their parents and practice what they are learning at school.  It's great!

I found these cute Dr. Seuss bags at Target and the cute little tags too!
Perfect for reading bags!

 I numbered the tags with stickers.

Printed out some instructions of what they can do with the books 
and when to return them to school.  Then, I glued it on the back of the tags.

Laminated them and wha-la!, my bucket of books is ready for the new year!

These bags would be great for library books, special journals that get sent home 
for the week or even storage for center/learning activities.

Blog Lovin

So even though I haven't written on my own blog since last February (minus 30 minutes ago), I have actually been keeping up with everyone else's blogs.  And also switched over from Google Reader to Bloglovin.

I've been following blogs on Bloglovin for about a week now and love it!  It's easy to set-up, great format to read and I also love that they have an app so I can easily read blogs on the go.

Anyhow, I apparently need to claim my blog on Bloglovin, so here we go!

How great is this ear bud organizer from Hopelessly Devoted!?
Ear buds are on our school supply list this year, so I had been thinking about 
some way to store them- this will work great!

I found these ABC posters and hopped right over to TPT to download them.
Aren't they adorable?

I actually had pinned this a while ago and forgot about it.
I was looking for number worksheets to start of the year,
and came across it again.  It is by Inspired by Kindergarten.  
I love the simplicity of the layout!

Other Pins:

Yum!  Yum!  I made this mix from Glorious Treats for the 4th yesterday 
and it was so good!
Good and EASY- that's the best part! :)

Isn't this the cutest little art nook that Project Girl posted?
Good thing we just finished our basement up
or I would be asking my husband how he could
build this.  Well, I still might...

I found this picture on Little Daisy May and had to pin it!
We got a wooden monogram for Christmas and I 
still haven't found the right place/thing to do with it.
I love this...add it to the summer project list!

Can't wait to see what everyone else is pinning!
