Reunited... and it feels so good!

I've been on hiatus folks.
A long hiatus.
As in, my last post was in December of 2013.

A lot has happened since then...

I had my baby and celebrated her first birthday!


Seriously, how is my Maggie one already?  She is a spunky spitfire who is so sweet.  I love her to bits, and I can't wait to spend my summer with her.

Speaking of summer, how many more days do you have until summer break????

I have two and a half.
Plus, a teacher work day.

I plan on having my kindergarten kiddos help me clean up my room in preparation for closing it down for the summer.  They already started by helping on Friday.  Here's how...

How many of you have the games/puzzle shelf?
Mine was a dis-as-ter!

Last Friday, I assigned a puzzle to each table and had them work to put it together.  If there was a piece missing, they had to go to the land of missing pieces (aka the floor where I dumped all the missing pieces) and find the piece.  If they couldn't find the piece, I raffled off a partially complete puzzle for one of my lovelies to take home.

They were so excited!  Because, seriously, who doesn't love a Toy Story puzzle with three pieces missing?

I also disposed of all beat down, broken game boxes.  How does Candy Land look like it went through the disposal?

I'm going to keep the game boards in one place and baggie up all the pieces to put in a board games basket. Bye bye boxes!  It's so much cleaner and easier to access.  I'll have to take a picture and share it with you when I'm back in the classroom on Tuesday.

So,  I'm reunited with my blog, and I hope to be reunited with TpT soon.

It's good to be back, and  I hope you'll stick around while I edit/share/rediscover kindergarten and my little one year old while I'm at it!

Have a great holiday weekend!
