It's Almost August...

Teachers Deals and Dollar Steals is hosting a link up of items you'll need in August. Yes...I said August. *sigh* 

I just have to ask, do you follow Teacher Deals and Dollar Steals? If not you need to, friend. Just so you know, I post a product on the blog the 16th of EVERY month. Yes, I do. The Smart Kids product is always available for three days at the $1 price.

So do I have products you'll need to start the year. Of course!

My favorite product that everyone loves at the beginning of the year is this crayon book. It is $1 all time! A great way to recycle the empty boxes.

Give your little ones the chance to imagine their way through the alphabet with these prompts that you can use all year long.

Teacher Testimonial: "What a great way to introduce and pratice writing basic sentences, sentece conventions and handwriting. This will be a wonderful writing center addition. I really appreciate the two different writing lines you've provided as well."

Use the last days of summer to make these centers you'll use all year long.

Teacher Testimonial: "I used this for whole group lessons and station activities. I love it!"
"I am using this set for RTI students who are not meeting standards. It works perfectly and requires little extra planning and prep."

It Doesn't Stay in Vegas...Video Footage of the FUN

So there's the phrase, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." Um, No. These fabulous folks were given fair warning. Here's what goes down in my SDE sessions.

Sure, I could post slides and pictures of me...but isn't that more fun? Truth is, I didn't even get one picture of myself all day long. I did get a lot of joy, however, out of sharing with teachers and listening to them as well. Remember if you have any questions about our sessions, feel free to email me. 

Then there's these two...
Laurie and Rachelle from Abilene, Texas were the first teachers to walk into my session 8 a.m Monday morning. They stayed with me all day, right there on the front row to encourage and just down right bless me all day long. We started out like this on Monday...
We ended up like this by Thursday!
Another privilege for me is working with the fabulous folks at ESGI. Here I am in their booth talking about the magic of saving hours on your assessments. 

Poof! Who doesn't want assessments that are done in a jiffy? Alakazam! Charts and customized flash cards are made with one click. Shazam! You've shared your data with principals and parents. Seriously. GET YOUR TRIAL LICENSE  before the first week of school. (Use code B6336 to save $40.)

Then there's the fun of meeting up with friends from Georgia...

Kelly: First Grade Fairytales
Bonnie: Bonnie Kathryn Kinders and Beyond
Greg: Mr. Elementary Math California!

Heidi: HeidiSongs
Palma: KFUNdamentals
Yes, there is a whole lot of learning going on at SDE conferences. The fun and friendships are the glue that makes it all stick. Be sure to look for a conference in your state this year. Start saving your pennies for the National Conference next July in Vegas!

Leave a comment if you went to the conference. Even if you weren't in my sessions, share your fun!
