Chicago, a Sneak Peek, and a SALE!

Ahhh!! I had the BEST weekend in Chicago with these ladies!! I seriously don't know what I would do without them... I love them all!! Check out some of the MOST INSPIRING women I have ever met:

Aren't they all so pretty??!?

{By the end of this vacation, my smile hurt... I have never smiled or laughed so much in my life!!}

I also got to meet sweet, Melissa and Nicole from Lesson Plan SOS & I had so much fun with them!

Amy and I brought our husbands along with us... they are such good sports!! 
And I think they became BFFs by the end!!

It was so hard to say goodbye to all these ladies at the end of the weekend.
 I am so, SO sad that we all live so far away from each other!
 Thank goodness for modern technology, so we can always stay in touch. 

Check out all of their awesome blogs... they are SO worth following! 
You will also find a wealth of resources and ideas from them all:

 Cheryl from Primary Graffiti
Rachelle from What the Teacher Wants
Kim Adsit from The Kinder Gals
Kathleen from Growing Kinders
Michelle from Fabulous in First
Deanna from Mrs. Jump's Class
Amanda from One Extra Degree

On the airplane {to and from Chicago}, I started working on this unit. My kiddos need some serious help with the number line! I hope to have it finished and posted within a few weeks. :)

  2. I think it is such a blessing how TPT and the blogging world have been able to connect such talented teachers together!! Each of you have been such an inspiration to me and have helped me be a better teacher! So fun that you were all able to get together last weekend! Looks like a blast!

    My kiddos need some major help with the number line too! I made up a fun pumpkin hop activity that we used the pumpkin candies with! Oh my goodness-they loved it and were so motivated to use it! It's a part of my Pumpkin Day packet-I posted some pics on my blog

  12. I am so excited for your number line unit! My firsties are working hard to understand how to use it in addition and subtraction. It will be a Huge help since I know your work is accurate and adorable. Thanks for the heads up!

  13. Loved seeing all of the pictures of your trip. Would love to have you stop by my blog. I have posted Subtraction and Addition Strategies Posters for free.

  14. Just purchased your number line set! Very cute!

    I was wondering if you made this in power point or what other program. I am trying to learn how to use landscape and portrait orientation in the same program. Any insight you can give me would be great!
    Thanks Lori
