Alphabet Songs

Greatest thing since sliced bread!!  Calling all CrAzY teachers....... you are going to love these Alphabet Songs when teaching letter sounds!!!  Every time you teach a new sound-show a video---- you are going to love what your kids come up with to rock out to the videos.  Depending on what you allow in your class, I even had one attempt break dancing- Fo Shizzle.  You have an opportunity to get the free download of these songs until May 31st..... here is the info on that:

8 more days Peeps!!!!!

Speaking of peeps..... did we tell you that we did chicks this year for our kids?  Chicks peep..... so that lead me to chicks.  Anywho..... out of our 12 eggs.... 3 hatched ALL in my teamie's room.... while she was out having knee surgery.  SO neither of us got to enjoy them... well her kids did, but lets be honest here, it's all about us.  SO when my eggs didn't hatch (probably because I cooked them at 105 over the weekend when I got them- on accident) I had a plan.  I dropped the kids at lunch, high tailed it to the feed store up the street (we are in Texas y'all) got me a chick (that they seriously put in a brown lunch sack and stapled the top closed and handed it to me peeping away) headed back to school, popped it in the incubator, picked the kids up from lunch, and boo-yah! our egg hatched!  So while my other half is at home skipping the CrAzY kids these last 8 days I am babysitting all 4 chicks in my classroom.  And let me tell you.... If I forget to feed them they remind me by getting out of the box and running around like a CrAzY chick looking for food and interrupting my great end of the year lessons.  So you guys be thinking of our other CrAzY Texas Teacher while she is at home creating more fun packets for our kids  resting. We decided our kids really needed to be reviewing these core standards every day this summer .  So while we are at home in our pj's watching Lifetime, The Bachelorette, or whatever you guys watch, our kids can be working on this CrAzY awesome Summer Packet.  It is 31 pages, copy it twice and send it home.  They do one page a day over the summer  AND it tells them if they bring it back at the beginning of the new school year- we will give them a treat!  We are CrAzY excited about all the work their little brains will be doing over the summer and the BEST part is- each page will take LESS than 10 min a day.  Just a quick review of: reading, writing, math and word lists.  You're going to love us after you get your hands on this!

Thanks for the Memories!

Summer's here! Another year of school is at an end.
We've learned a lot and grown a lot and made a lot of friends.
 We'll say goodbye, now summer's here, it's time for us to part.
But we'll remember all our friends and keep them in our hearts.

Now that the end is near, it is time to get those kids writing about their favorite things. It's always fun to see what they remember and what they consider their favs! They can also write about summer plans and things they look forward to next year. We also included a friends autograph page.  We print out the cover sheet in color and put all pieces in a brad folder.  It makes a great end of the year gift for the parents. It's CrAzY cute!
We created a memory book for Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade.
 Make sure you pick up the correct one. 
(As always, all items are also available on Teacher's Notebook.)
Kindergarten - English Language Arts, Math, Science -

13 days - - Almost Graduation time

13 days left guys!!  Thirteen! Lucky number 13. That means only 2 Mondays left! In that 13 days also includes 2 early dismissal days! Woohoo!! No matter how you look at it, it's BEAUTIFUL...and a little CrAzY!!!  That means our little Kindergarten friends will be graduating!  They have worked so hard this year- we are so proud!  Here is our great Graduation packet full of Literacy and Math work, thinking maps and writing papers.

One word --- CrAzY!

 Whew! Are we the only ones a little relieved, and sad, that Sunday is over?!? The Teacher Appreciation Jackpot exceeded all our expectations. We can't wait to start using all the CrAzY freebies we downloaded. The generosity shown Sunday was overwhelming! We are proud to be a part of such a great community of teachers!

We have been talking a while about celebrating 100 followers with a giveaway! The numbers just s-l-o-w-l-y crept up. And then BAM!! we added over 50 followers in 36 CrAzY hours! Needless to say, we haven't figured out a giveaway yet! We've just been staring at our CrAzY blog stats and TpT stats all day! Maybe we should have a 150 followers giveaway?!?

We are wondering if any of our followers out there would want to donate something to our giveaway? We want to make it CrAzY good for all but not sure how to do it!  We were thinking entries could be received by following the blog and TpT store of anyone participating in our giveaway. Any suggestions? Anything work great for you? Anything bomb? We would love to hear it! Also, if you are interested in donating something to our giveaway, please leave a comment and we will email you.

Thanks for joining us, and helping us, on this CrAzY ride we are on! We are lovin' it!
