Five for Friday!

I'm hooking up with the amazing Doodle Bugs Teaching for her weekly Five for Friday!  Geeze, I've missed doing these!!!!

This is my first week back at blogging!  YIPEE!!!  I posted all about my medical issues that have kept me away but I am gone no longer.

I had some time to think about the direction I really want to go with my new products.  It is highly advised by everyone that once you've established a "name" you should never change it.  Here's the problem with that.  I teach Special Education now.  I would love for my name to reflect that.  I'm also making products for both Kindergarten AND higher grade levels.  Not sure yet what to do about that but I'll let you know.

I feel like I've been making products like a crazy lady.  You know when you sit for a long time thinking about something?  Then you finally have the opportunity to get it done.   It's like this.....

So every night when I finish work, I race home to start working....again.  You all know what that is like, I'm sure.  I'm hoping to eventually find that balance again but for now, no rest for the weary.

Here are some of those products I've been working on.  The first is my Sight Word Booklets.  I've made them for all 4 of the FRY lists.  Each product contains booklets for 100 words.  Students will have a word list, a fluency phrase for each word, a visual discrimination page and a spelling list page.

The product shown above is a BUNDLE product which also includes Emergent Reader books to go along with each booklet.  Students will gain exposure to the sight words in context.  Each page of the Reader includes the sight word in a simple sentence made up of other sight words or simple, decodable words.  

I have the original booklets available for each Hundred list.  The bundle is only available for the First Hundred now.  I'm working on the Second Hundred.  I will post when that is up and available.

This product is a GREAT way for students to get that important practice with teen numbers.  They can be so tricky for the little ones and it is my belief that the more practice they get, the better their understanding will be.

My babies!!!!!  Looks like they had a rough night staying up late while mama worked :)

Definitely make sure to check out the other great blogs over at Doodle Bugs.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I recommend changing your name now before you wait too long and it's even harder! Earlier this year I changed mine from aisforapplekindergarten to totallyelementary for some of the same reasons. :) Good luck!! Love your new products!!

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I hope it worked out well for you!
