All About Me

Well, where do I begin? My name is Jessie. For those of you that are new to my blog, WELCOME!!!! I have only been blogging since last November and still trying to find my grove in things. I planned on doing a lot of blog reading and writing this summer but my four year old foster son had other plans. LOL I guess that this would be a good segue into what I am all about.

My family means the world to me and that's what I try to stay focused on. We currently have a four year old foster son who will only be with us for just a few more weeks. He has lived here for over a year, and we fell in love with him like a son. I cannot begin to imagine what it is going to do to us when he leaves. Below is one of my favorite pics of us.

This will be my first year in kindergarten. (Gasp) I have taught second grade for six years and loved every minute of it. I changed to kindergarten to gain some experience in other grades and try something new. While I am very excited about the change, I am also starting to freak out a little. I even had a dream the other night and lets just say that the chaos was insane!!! Below is one pic from my classroom. I will leave the rest for the tour I plan on posting later this week.

I have a small store on Teachers Pay Teachers and would love for you to stop by. I have high plans on expanding this year and adding some great new products. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hop on over to blog hopping to check out the other All About Me posts!

Still Putting it Together

Hey everyone! I know that I do not do many posts, but I do want tot hank those of you that continue to read. I have not really been doing that much besides getting my class ready for all those little Kinders. It is crazy to think that in just a short couple of weeks we will be in the full swing of things. 

As I said in my last blog, my room is all thing Alabama. Roll Tide Roll!!!!
Today I spent some time creating my little tides a name badge so they, or the people helping out, can easily put in their lunch numbers. Yes, I am totally freaking about lunchtime. In second grade it wasn't that big of a deal. Well look out kindergarten!!

Their name will obviously replace my own. If anyone would like some of these I can email it out to you very easily. Or if a lot of people want it I can add it to my TPT store for free. 

I also created a cover for the little guys Leadership Binders. Our school is in our third year of The Leader in Me and we are really going to push these binders this year. Given in kindergarten there will not be much data, but it will be something that they can show visitors. There will be some progress stuff in the back. Our principal graciously bought each student a binder, agenda, folder, and page protectors. Yay for Title 1!!!

So now that those things are done I can start to work on getting the first week plans, materials, and such together. Unfortunately I do not have my class list yet, they hold that til the day before. How many of you have gotten your class lists yet? 

Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will get in another ROLL TIDE!!!
