Daily 5, Cafe, & Vegas...OH MY!

We are adopting Daily 5 and Words Their Way into our Kindergarten program...FINALLY!  The last 2 weeks we have had some EXCELLENT TRAINING...yes training...and I am so ready to go back to school and give it a try!  THANK YOU to all the lovely bloggers who participated in the Daily 5 Book Study in the past.  I learned so much reading your posts, too!   

I can't wait to make my CAFE board.  I love creating things with fun fonts, cute clip art, boarders, and colorful backgrounds.  But when I saw this set...I knew I had to have a little of my summer back!  Check out Primary Graffiti's blog and store.

This past week I made ALL the anchor charts for Kim Adsit & Michele Scannell Readers Workshop Units...then they "magically" come out with ANOTHER ADORABLE unit.  I think I will just get through the first 8 with my kiddos and ENJOY more of my summer with my family.

I am ENJOYING reading all the posts about Vegas I Teach K meet-up. 

I can't be there this summer...I am going to Rock Fest with my hubby. 

I will be somewhere in that picture or just looking back stage for Bret  Michaels.  I am not a huge fan of recent "ROCK" music...but I like the old 80's rock and my I am going to spend time with him enjoying something he likes.    

Great news...summer 2014....LuAnn & I will be in Vegas at the I Teach K conference.  How many more sleeps?  HE HE HE

P.S. I am Blog Lovin'....Are you?...Of course you are...everybody else is doing it, right!?!  Please follow us by clicking the button on our blog.  THANKS!

Have a great time and enjoy your summer!  Thanks for reading!!!


  1. One of us is really bummed? Are you telling me that I am missing Bret Michaels? One of us and their husband is also a huge fan of 80's rock music. We also enjoy 70's classic rock. Can I make you a deal? Will you promise to share what you get from Kindergarten Convention with us. In return, we will share what we get from the DIBELS Convention the week prior.

    Let us know; we want some Daily 5/CAFE info!!!
