More pronouns

With a pack of Lisa Frank clearance stickers, index cards, some paper, and a couple markers I made two simple activities for one of my first grade teachers.I typed up the sentences I used for the Pronoun or Noun activity so it could be shared with all. Enjoy!

I'm hoping that I gave credit where it was due (border is from Graphics From the Pond) with this pronoun activity.

I'm back!

So the last few months have been...life changing? yeah,that's a good way to put things. 
I was picked up for contract services at my child's school and I have been working there since October. I love working with kindergarten and first grade and the school is AWESOME! I love what I'm doing and I love my kiddos-love,love,love!
I made it as far as the beginning of September and decided it would be better to put it on the back burner. I'm still saddened at the thought of not going for my degree right now but it's all good. One day-just not today and not tomorrow.
I have entered into the world of divorce and I think I'm headed into the direction of being a true single mother. Eww. It is what it is though and the show must go on! My girls and I are happier and that's what matters.
Things are totally crazy! Busy is an understatement. Whew!! I missed blogging and stalking blogs and reading awesome teachery things and laughing at daily classroom life and well,everything really.

I've been working on a few things for one of the first grade classes I'm in. The teacher is fabulous-she really is. I'm glad I was able to pull from my many resources as well as make some new things that could be of use to her in her room. I'm becoming an -I have,Who has- making champ! I can't wait to see what this month's ventures will be. 
My child's teacher has also taken me in and let's me do a craft each week. Kindergarten is sooooo fun!! Thanks to Pinterest and my handy dandy imagination my crafts have been engaging, yummy, and the kids totally heart me!

I can't wait to share what I've been up to!
