My First "Back to School" Purchases for My New First Graders!

About Me

My photo
Welcome! I hope to use this blog to share some of the amazing things my class and school does to make learning fun! I have been teaching for 15 years already! I started teaching 3rd grade in a Parochial School, then I was hired to teach 1st grade for three years, was moved to 5th grade for 2 years, and then came back to 1st grade in the district where I attended school. I love that I'm able to give back the the school district that guided me to become the teacher I am today! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, certified 1-8; a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction; and my Administrator License Pre-K-12.

It Lives!!!!!

Thank God!
My dad and I worked on my tree yesterday and we were able to bring it back to life!
I love my tree!  My family, a very good friend and I created it last summer.  We change the leaves to match the seasons we have up here in Northern Ohio so I'll do a better job of taking pictures of it and sharing it with you throughout the year.

Heading to the nearest Lakeshore store with my sister (it's her first time) and my partner in crime today! I have a list this time!

Can't wait to see everyone's "Monday Made It" projects!  I so have to join that linky party next year!  You're all so crafty!

Have a great day!


  1. Yay! I'm glad to see that the tree is fixed! I have one similar to yours & it is a lot of hard work to make one! :)
    Learning Is Something to Treasure

    1. It is! I had visions of making a brand new one for this year which was not on my list of things to do! :)

  2. So glad to hear it survived!!

  3. That's a very cool tree. No wonder you wanted to save it!
