SDE Kindergarten Conference Recap

I am so excited to be presenting today at the Franklin SDE conference because these are my stomping grounds! Every time I speak at a conference, I try to recap what was discussed and throw a sale in my TpT store. Critical Thinking I hope that you are able to walk away with some tangible ideas from […]

Inference Lesson *In My Fur Ring”

I LOVE this idea and I take zero credit because it is not mine. A fab 5th grade teacher, Kelli M., that used to teach at my school came up with this fun idea and it is absolutely genius. I put a few of my own twists on it but I think this is such a […]

Button Stem Activity

I saw this fun Button Stem activity while looking for some STEM activities for my kids and knew I had to give it a try! First, we read Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons. I usually teach subtraction with this book but since I’m in TK this year, not sure when subtraction will […]
