Getting Spooky with Brain Breaks!

I've got a fun post over at A Classy Collaboration for you!

I gathered up some of my students' favorite not-so-spooky brain breaks that are perfect for this time of year! If you already use Symbaloo, you can easily add this webmix to your own collection. If you don't use Symbaloo, this is a great time to learn!


Just click on the picture above to see what I've put together!

If you're interested in more (and mostly free!) spook-tactular resources for the month of October, make sure you're following my October: Classroom Resources board on Pinterest. Click through the picture below to take a peek!


Happy Thursday! :)

Fall Into Proper Nouns {a FREEBIE!}

I have a super quick freebie for you today! 

I teach in a school with a large ESOL population, and one of the skills I always spend time reviewing is recognizing and writing proper nouns correctly. I found several homework pages I made last year and threw them together in a small packet! 

Click on the picture above or on the link below to grab it from Teachers Pay Teachers! Don't forget to leave feedback if you like what you see! :) 

Grab the freebie packet from Teachers Pay Teachers!

I also have a bigger packet with 30 pages of common and proper noun goodies if you're looking for something more substantial for your classroom.

Back in the Groove!


It's been a minute since I checked in with you! :) In case you missed it on my Facebook page, there is a VERY good (and really cute!) reason I've been "out of the office" for the last few weeks. :)

Meet Harrison!

To say I am in love is an understatement. :) He is such a good baby and I am a lucky mama.

When I think about the fact that we only have 5 weeks left together before I have to go back to work, I want to cry. :( I know other people have done it thousands of times before me, so here is my question for you veteran mamas:

What would have made your transition back to work easier? 

How do you reconnect with your love for teaching when a big part of your heart would rather be at home with your baby? :) 

I'd love to hear from you!
