I have been feeling super creative lately and have decided to put my energy to good use. I have been having some fun with creating some fun clip art that are available in my Teachers pay Teachers site. You can access my page by clicking HERE. If you are a teacher you can use them for all kinds of activities and worksheets. There are 28 clip art images, 1 background and 2 frames.
Did you know that I love Photoshop? No...really...I love Photoshop. Whenever I get the chance to play I cannot resist. I love to learn new things. So my friend has this sweet little girl who is starting a little sucker business and needed a logo made. I could not wait to jump at the chance to try some new techniques. Here are the some of the designs I came up with. I am no professional but hey...they are free!
I love to make each student gets special attention when the time is right. There is no other perfect time than on their birthdays. This cute birthday chart is a cute and easy way to display those birthdays each month. If you laminate it you can re-use it over and over again. WIN-WIN! Here is the link to get the chart: Birthday Chart!
One of my goals is to get to know each of the kiddos that I will be working with. I enjoy learning about each of them and what they enjoy. I have created a simple template to get my kids to explore who they are and learn how to share information about themselves. If you would like to use this template go HERE.
I am starting out on a new adventure. I am working on becoming a teacher. Utah has a new certification program for those that already have a four year degree. I have now taken on the role of being a Teacher Assistant to some cute and adorable first graders. I can use this job to get my practical experience underway. The school I am working with has two teachers and two classes that switch. I move between the two of them. One teacher teaches math and science. The other teachers English. Then different teachers come in to teach art, technology and they go to PE. I love that I get to see the different styles of teaching from the two mentors that I have. I have been doing some research on how the math teacher can best use some dominoes in his classroom. We are currently working on number Associative Property of Addition. I made this worksheet to use with dominoes to reinforce this concept to the kids. I have it up on Teachers Pay Teachers as a freebie. You can see it HERE. Here is what it turned out like. Happy Days my friends!
Well it is that time of year again...time for the kids to get back into school and start their various activities. If I am not on my game something will fall through. There have been times in the past that I have simply missed a meeting or activity. Then I feel that horrible. I have found that keep a constant watch on my calendar that I seem to keep things on track. I have scoured various types of daily calendars and cannot find one that fit all my basic needs. I do not need all the fluff just a time breakdown, dinner and to do. If this is something that you need help yourself to this hourly (for the week) template HERE.
Wife, mom, sister, daughter. I am not afraid to try anything at least once. Come with me in all of the fun and sometimes frustrating experiences that I go through in trying out new experiences and overcoming many challenges that many of us have to deal with in life.
