  1. A friend showed me your blog, and I am enjoying so much. I purchased your fall packet with the candy corn (LOVE!) alphabet, and was hoping the "Rhyming Spiders" would be in this packet as well. I cannot find it anywhere, and am MORE than happy to pay for it (this is the one you put on the matching scrapbook paper for added support). Can you please tell me where I can find this? Thanks so much!

  3. I got a great story about Monsters from your website sometime last year that I can't find. You had a story of the monster coming to school and misbehaving, then monster printables to make a bulletin board of "above the line" and "below the line" behavior. Can you please let me know which year/month I can find it?

    1. Just google "the day a monster came to school" and it should pop up. I didn't write the story, it's from an old reading series!

  4. Hi Kathleen...I purchased the Gingerbread Unit back in December, and commented on how I wish the sight words were editable as the ones that came with the unit did not match. I know this is a little late, but I wondered before I pack everything away if there is a way I can fix it?? I printed the words onto labels but it would look so much better if I could print from the computer.

  6. I LOVE the Learning Targets/CCSS boards you made on cookie sheets! Would you please explain to me how you hung them? I use similar CCSS labels in my room, but would love to display like yours.
    Thanks so much,

    1. I don't think I made mine on cookie sheets - I believe they are magnetic dry erase boards :) I use the removable velcro to hang things like this!

    I have been on your blog for a long time and love what you do. I'm sad you are leaving the kindergarten world, but will be great in first grade. Thanks for all your inspiration and enthusiasm to help so many others.

  8. Hello! I am also SO sad you will be off to first grade! You have so many wonderful ideas to share! I do have 2 questions- I can not find a song for September that goes with your calendar time- I have found all the others, but no september- any advice as to where to look to find this? Also, I am going to an all day every day routine and liked the idea of the breakfast baskets for in the morning-have you found activites like the 1st grade ones that you mentioned in your blog for k or just use the first grade level come January? Thanks!! I hope that made sense and that you are gearing up for first grade! :0) drohrbaugh1@neo.rr.com

  11. Kathleen hello! I was at the I teach K and learned so much from you! You said you might be able to put up your Weather sheet where the kids write what the day is like or something...I can't remember what it all entailed. Would you be able to email me it: kaipurvis83@gmail.com PS I LOVE your products! I won something at the conference, (not from your store unfortunately) but a dice shaker thing...so thank you :) can't wait to use it!

  12. Hello! I love your blog. I am a new Kindergarten teacher and really like your calendar time! I am trying to find your monthly songs/poems on here but could only find a few. Are those on TPT? Or can I just not find them? :) Thank you!

    1. The best way to find them is to google them or search for them on pinterest! I do have plans to put them all together, but my life has been turned upside down over the past several months! They are often posted towards the beginning or the end of the month!

  15. I am an upcoming teacher. I am constantly looking for websites and other sources that will help me prepare for my future classroom. Upon initial viewing of the site I very much like what your website has to offer. Would you mind explaining to me a little more about how your site operates? Does it cost money for me to use the material posted throughout your site?
    Thanks for your help,
    Bentley Anderson
