Kinderglynn Named in the Top 5 Blogs Written by KIndergarten Teachers

Click Here to see more

Wow, I am completely humbled that the California Teaching Credential named my blog as one of the top 5 best blogs written by Kindergarten teachers. What an honor! I absolutely love what I do each and everyday. Many days can be challenging, but I can not think of any place else I would rather be in life. I have made so many wonderful friends throughout the United States while traveling to conferences and have built amazing friendships through blogging. I feel like I have known all of you my whole life.

There is something very special about being in education. It is not like any other profession. I think it is incredible to be part of a group that shares the same passion and goals. I love being part of something where everyone is so creative and full of energy. I love that we are able to share our creations and help each other solve problems along the way. I can truly say, it is one big family and I am so happy to be part of it. I know I can always depend on you when I need help, and I hope you know I am always here for anything you may need. I am always in awe of what everyone does in their classrooms.

I want to give BIG shout outs to everyone who teaches and congratulations to all who were in the top 50. So many of you I know and admire! I hope everyone has a fantastic summer. I know if you are like me, it will be making, creating and thinking about the new school year! If anyone is going to conferences this summer, let me know. I will be presenting at the Frog Street Press Conference in Dallas in July. Thanks to all of you for what you do each and every day. When we are all working together as a "team" it makes all of our jobs so much easier! Can't wait to see what next year brings!

Ahoy Matey!

Check out a spin on "Bump." My kiddos love playing bump and they get such a kick out of knocking each other off the board. I thought I would add a spin on it and make it with Pirates and Money! They have a blast! Instead of bump, they say, "Walk the plank!" LOL

We Have a Winner

Happy Cinco De Mayo!! I hope everyone had a wonderful day! I know we sure did. Today was Anthony's birthday. He was so excited. He got up really early and was just smiling the whole morning. When he got home we ate at Hibachi and it was fantastic. Then came the presents. It is a tradition in our house to wrap presents in box after box after box. This year I ran out of boxes, but remembered that I had bought some stockings (of course to put sight words in for the kids to pull out and practice next December haha) so I pulled those out, stuck the presents inside them and wrapped and then did it again and again. Overall, it was exciting and we are looking forward to a relaxing weekend and watching the final episode of Suite Life on Deck. Anyway, I think the highlight of his night was hitting the random number generator to pick the winner. So, without making anyone wait any longer........

Heather email me your choices and I will email them to you!! Congrats!

Word Deletion Farm-O

My students love taking parts of a word away and asking each other what it the answer would be. I love it because they are not only practicing listening skills with each other, but also learning to delete word parts. I made this game and my students have been crazy over it. I did some minor adjustments and just listed it. I hope you enjoy it. Click here:
