*FREE* Popsicle Colors - Word Search Bookmarks

I created a popsicles unit for a teacher friend for summer school and thought others might be able to use these bookmarks from the set. They are perfect for Summer School or Popsicles on the Playground with families. If you have never tried doing Popsicles on the Playground with your students and families in the spring, you have to try it! It's so much fun to see families interact with their children and it's incredibly cheap! You can download these bookmarks for free at my TpT store by clicking here or on the picture below. I would love to hear how you use them!

Felt Cute, May Buy Them All Later!

This morning, some of my 6th graders and I had a little fun posing Dog Man for the #feltcutechallenge for our Scholastic Dino-Mite Buy One Get One Free Book Fair. Watching our vertically challenged student trying to get up and down with this ginormous costume was hilarious! We can't even fit it through the door.  ;)

Reading is in Bloom

My Reading is in Bloom! bulletin board picture from a few years ago popped up as I was cleaning up my Google Drive files/folders tonight. It makes me want to make it all over again! Don't mind the 'R' cut off at the beginning of the word Reading. ;) Ha!

I vow to have my school Google Drive and email all cleaned up before school's out, as long as old pictures don't distract me too much. Do you have a favorite bulletin board that you've created over the years that makes you happy to look at over and over again? This was definitely one of my favorites!

{FREEBIE} Five Little Bunnies Subtraction Shared Reading and Finger Puppets

I created this fun Easter/Bunnies shared reading and finger puppets set back when I taught Kindergarten, but it's still great to use in the library, as well! Click on the pictures below to download this freebie. Also, at the end of this post, you can purchase the emergent reader from my TpT store that matches this set.


 
I also created an emergent reader to go with the rhyme. You can purchase it through my TpT store for $1.50.
