BTS Blogger Product Swap!

Cara at Creative Playground is having an incredible BTS (we all know what that means) product swap. 
 I am very lucky to be paired up with the fabulous Kourtney Payton at Mrs. Payton's Precious Kindergarteners. If you have not been to her blog yet, check it out {here}.

I am so excited to share her product with you!!

The first week of school, I always read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and my students always fall in love with it.
All of Kourtney's activities are a perfect match (and I know my students will fall in love with them too)!!  

First, the Play-doh mats are a win-win 
for my class!! My students LOVE play-doh and I 
can implement them right away as an independent
reading station :)
Second, the letter match is another station I can 
use right away! I can pair high/low students for
 this one. The worksheets are my favorite part--I 
can use them for an informal assessment!
Third, Kourtney made a great write the room activity! My students want to write the room every day and they want to work together to complete it:)
Fourth, I can check to see who knows their  numbers from 1-10 with the apple tree match. My students will not even know I am assessing them because they will be having fun.
Ok, I could keep going but I will stop....after this :)
Sequencing, Sight Words, and Bulletin Boards Oh MY!!

 My first two weeks of school are full of fun and learning now because Kourtney has everything I need!!  
If you would like a chance to win a copy of Kourtney's unit and my favorite BTS unit(Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Sight Words Can You Read?) enter the rafflecopter below and good luck.  If you would like to buy Kourtney's now, then click {here} to go right to her store :)
Make sure you check out all the other great BTS stuff from the blogs below!!

Wordless Wednesday!

Sugar and Spice

This is my first Wordless Wednesday linky :)
A picture says it all......so here is mine.........


We had an awesome vacation in North Carolina last week! This picture was taken at Triple Falls in The DuPont State Forest in NC!! I have pictures from our whitewater rafting trip too, but they do not look so relaxing :) Thankfully, I did survive to tell about it!!
