I'm Back & Ready to Blog it Up - September Currently - & a FREEBIE

I have taken a little blog hiatus for a couple of months as I've had a lot going on.  I'm actually extremely sad because according to my doctor, I'm not well enough to teach yet and am taking a medical leave of absence until January to get my health back in check.  It's taken a lot of doctor appointments and hospital stays, but she thinks if I "lay low" I should be able to go back in January (but being constantly monitored).  I'm sad because I miss the hustle and bustle of the first few weeks of school and that connection you form with your kiddos; however, this is giving me some time to work on some products I've been wanting to make for a while now and since I have to sit on the couch or lay in bed most days.....this is the perfect time to get caught up.  I'm also creating a blogging schedule so that my blogs aren't so random.  I should have the schedule finished for the month of September by the weekend, so I'll share it with you then.
So while I'm "laid up", if you have an requests you would like me to make for you....I'd be glad to make them for you if you would like.  I've taught kindergarten, second, third, and fourth grades so I'm kind of a "jack of all trades" and am familiar with the CCSS at each grade...so feel free to contact me if you need anything in particular, but don't have the time.  

And now, I'm linking up with the amazing Farley at Oh Boy, Fourth Grade for.....

Upcoming Blogging Schedule and New Bloggy Friend you HAVE to Visit

I'm back and ready to blog!  It has been a rough couple of months (I'll spare you details).  My new bloggy friend from Teach. Train. Love blog  and I are collaborating to come up with a blogging schedule for the upcoming summer and school year.  We're going to include some new weekly linkies and some great teaching ideas, tips, and of course freebies.  You HAVE to check out her blog...she is a complete doll!  I just met her, but I think we hit it off as we both have the same teaching philosophy and she stated it so well on her blog.

This quote is directly from her blog....it just describes how I teach to a T.
I hold true to one simple and definitive idea.  That is, children learn best when they feel good about themselves. Dr. James Comer wrote, “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” Those words are a cornerstone of my teaching.

More about our upcoming blogging schedule to come so you know what you can look forward to!  If you have some ideas and want to join in....we'd love the input....just message or email me.  We thought we'd skype a few times to get some ideas rolling.  I've never skyped actually...just face timed.  Can a group of people use skype at the same time?  There has to be some way we can all get together in this land of technology!

Owl Freebie tomorrow!
Have a great day!
