Parent/Teacher Conference freebie!

Parent/Teacher Conferences were today.....and I'm worn out! Nineteen conferences later (that's right....19) and I think I'm half brain dead. ha They were great though and I am certainly blessed with wonderful students and parents. I always try to greet my parents with a smile, encourage them to sign in, and have some type of candy waiting. Here was my set up today - simple, but sweet. I thought the fern was fun, too. ha
Here's a little sheet I try to send home with parents. Unfortunately, I didn't get around to it this year but thought you all might find it helpful. Click the link below to snag from google docs and let me know if you do anything special for P/T Conferences. Please share and leave some love. Happy conferencing!

A little late...product swap fun!

Hey ya'll! I've been so busy, I've completely forgotten to feature my product swap. You all know my rule of thumb...better late than never. ha For those of you not familiar with Mrs. Stanford's product swap - you must get involved! So fun!
I was super excited to be paired up with Donna Glynn from Kinderglynn. This woman is all kinds of awesome in my book and was one of the first blogs I discovered way back when I joined the blog world. She shares a lot of great ideas and has wonderful ideas in her TpT store. Go check her out.
Anyways, I searched her store and seriously could not decide what to choose - Donna has a TON of products I want! I decided on her Beginning of the Year Morning Math Packet and was more than happy with all that was included. 
This math packet includes 93 pages of goodies for you to use as morning math work or supplemental material for you to create a math journal. It has everything from missing number, pattern, and graphing pages to ways to make 10, color, and word problem pages. Not to mention, so much more. 
I was more than excited to find items I could use immediately and even stick in a math work station! If you're like me, you are always struggling to find time to do a quickie math journal and sending a journal home at the end of the year with a ton of empty pages. Ok, well maybe it's just me...ha ha...but anyways, I completely feel like with this packet  - that will NOT happen. Her packet is reasonably priced at $6.00 and certainly could be used throughout the year. 

Hop on over to Donna's blog and check her out....leave her some love and become a follower. You'll be happy you did. And a big thank you shout out to Jessica for coordinating the swap - loads of fun. Have a great Saturday, friends!
