My New Look :)

What a great way to start a new school year...with a new blog look!  I am just in LOVE with how it turned out. I worked with the AMAZING Barb over at Ruby Slippers for a little over a week and this is the final product :) I never thought making over a blog could be so fun!

What do you think??

As I have been preparing to meet my students tomorrow, I have been feverishly finishing up two big projects, too!  First, getting the 2nd grade CCSS Math I can ___ Statements finished. I finally finished the pirate themed set! 

This set included a teacher checklist organized by Domain in addition to all standards turned into I can ___ statements (or student friendly language!).  Interested? Like pirates? Head over to my TPT store to check them out!

I am working on the insect themed set next! 

My second big project is my Calendar Math Yearlong Student Workbook + Monthly Templates. I spent almost two weeks creating and editing and changing and perfecting this document...and I think you will love it as much as I do! I am seriously so proud of this workbook. This is going to help me stay organized all year long with my calendar math routine. 

I created this workbook with second graders in mind however it can EASILY be used in a third grade classroom or even a first grade classroom!  There are 10 different monthly templates to pick and choose from. I created put them in the order that I will use them, along with tips and ideas (posters to create and post in the classroom to support your struggling learners and ELL students).

Head to my TPT store and check it out! I hope other teachers can find this helpful and useful!

Tomorrow I am going to make the books for my students and I will share a picture! But my plan is to comb-bind the pages together and to have students work out of the books 2 - 3 times a week. We do calendar math every day, and this is a very important part of the math curriculum and learning in my classroom, but giving students the opportunity to use prove their skills in their workbook, and to keep track of their learning throughout the year in one neat book.... my head is racing! I am just so excited about this!!!!

Tomorrow I will have my before and after pictures for my classroom :) I have loved looking at everyone's blogs these last few weeks for inspiration! Enjoy the rest of this holiday weekend!


  1. Your new blog looks amazing. I can't wait to get mine redone. I have spent a lot of time at Rainier games in Tacoma...Portland is baseball-less. We love that stadium.
