Manic Monday




Weeeeelcome to MANIC MONDAY. I'll be your host on what was, of course another CRAZY Monday. I have decided to post my weekly plans and preparation for the week on Mondays because it's always crazy getting back to the grind after the weekend. 

Anyway, we are doing an ALPHABET COUNTDOWN to the end of the year. It's hard to believe there are only 28 days left in the school year. WOW! Time seems to fly.

Our team was inspired by none other than GREG SMEDLEY of the Kindergarten Smorgasboard. If you don't follow him then you should because he rocks! He was my first and true #TCT (Teacher Crush Tuesday.) As in, I want to be like him when I grow up. :)

So this is all in addition to our regular curriculum because "FUN" is something we have to schedule ourselves and is not built in to the curriculum. 


Also, I am working on a Farm Animals Unit. Here is a sneak peek. ;)



AND... I have tidied up my Pinterest Boards. I am considering making this collaborative. If anyone is interested then leave me a comment below.
