Back to School FLASH FREEBIE!

We are kicking off our school year today with a FLASH FREEBIE for you! If you are teaching Pre-Schoolers or Kindergarteners, you are going to LOVE these fun, self-exploration crafts.

We will be using the “This is Me” and “My Name Begins With” on the first two pages of our Kindergarten LA notebooks. Our Kindergarten Math notebook will begin with “My Birthday is On”, “My Hand” and “Is My Foot a Foot.”

If you want to use the pages in your Interactive Notebooks, like we are doing, just scale them to 85% , trim the excess white space and glue ’em in :).

It will be free for the next 6 hours and then half-off the rest of the day!

Have a great first day back!

Favorite Reads of 2017 {Sonlight F}

I remember the first year we did Sonlight’s Core F (back in 2012).

And this core is special–the history and literature provide… Continue Reading
