I have the whole R.S. collection my kids love them just as much as I did (do)
Make constellations in a tube. I actually do this a lot when we have a spare tube for my kids and for my former daycare I would take dark construction paper scraps and just put it around roughly flat and use a pin to push in the outline of whatever the kids wanted...Great reward. They love it. Or you can, as I did for the older kids, let them select the constellation and I would punch it in. Great cheap activity to WOW any child.
I Love these. I did these for an activity with the younger girls at church and they had a blast! Definitely want to do them with my own kids someday and nieces and nephews around Thanksgiving.

Duct Tape Flower: I did this for Valentine's day for my kids teachers and they loved them!! So easy to do!!
Missing my mom more lately. She didn't have the things in the world to give me but she gave me all her Love, just hope one day my kids will appreciate me as much as I did my mom.
I am obsessed with cotton fields & this just made my love for them grow to a whole other level.
I love this birthday chart using the kids pictures instead of just bulletin board cutouts. I may have to do this!
I have these in the leopard print and I love them so much I just had to get the hot pink ones too... sometimes you just have to splurge :)
Things I Love
My kids love these holiday action cards! I just print and laminate them- then have a folder for each holiday and put all the activities in their! LOVE it!
I recently told my son this. He just can't understand how or why people He thought were his friend's or cared about him constantly act like he did so wrong and they are so much better than him....I just tell him those that really care do so even in your bad or immature times because they know they have their own issues and you have stuck by them through even when it was you being hurt.
Dr. Seuss "Things" for kindergarten. I have the kids number them from 1- however many kiddos I have in my class. So much fun! Pattern to follow.
I've used this song with my students. It has over 30 similes. I did three activities with it. Allowed them to first just listen to it with the lyrics showing on YouTube. Next, I told them to write as many as they could in their journals while listening to the song. I allowed the kids to pick one of the similes in the song and do an illustration (with help from art teacher). I am going to make a video with their pics using the song! The video is
Everyday I wish my Oma and Opa were here just so I could hear their voices one last time, and so I could tell them how much I love them. I love you guys so much.

Yes...I let my kids pick out costumes two months before Halloween just so they have the complete outfit I have pictured for them in my head.
~~Not furry but I love them just as much as all the furry ones!!~~ :-D Dolphins Dancing---- Aweee love my dolphins
Did I mention how silly they are lol. They love the water so much that they will sneak in the bathroom when the kids are in the bath and hop in the tub with them and then run dripping water down the hallways. Most people would get angry but that's a silly boxer for you and I love them
VALENTINE'S DAY: Too cute - and easy to make - yarn hearts. I just love crafts I can do with my kids!
All of my books mean so much to me as I write them. I fall in love with the couples as they fall in love with each other. But if I did have what some call a "book of my heart", I think it would be this one. Octavia and Ben were with me for nearly a decade before I wrote their love story, and the tale of fear and love that I tell through them drives my heart. Rogues of the Sea ~ Book #3
I did these for the day of the wedding and my girls loved it. I have a great vendor for them too - SM
