Burning Fingers....it's a real thing!

I have been the last few days updating and revamping SO many of my products in my TPT store.  I was neglecting them for way too long.  There are still a lot more that I need to update, but there's just no more time!

About these burning fingers....does that ever happen to you?  It's like I've worn away my fingerprint from all of the dragging and clicking on my laptop's little mouse pad thing.  It's even worse when I'm using my phone.  Please tell me I'm not alone.  Bye bye fingerprints!

My latest product is finally finished, too.  Since I'm switching to Kindergarten after 9 years in first grade, I figured I need to create some things I can use in my classroom. Here's what I've been working so hard on...

196 pages of EVERYTHING letters!  You really need to click the pic to check it out.  I'm excited to have this to use in my classroom.  I can't wait to prep it and use it so I can take some pictures!



My school is switching to a new Math curriculum.  We were using My Math...not my favorite.  This year we'll be using Eureka Math.  I've heard really good things about it, but I haven't been trained on it yet, so I don't know much.  I'm just afraid it won't allow me time to fit in my Math rotations.  I LOVED Math rotations last year and I cannot wait to try them out in Kindergarten. 

I realized that in the Eureka Math curriculum, when they ask kids to count on fingers, it's done in a crazy way.  After thinking about it, it makes sense.  But, it's not normal to put your pinky up when you show 1.  It'll take some training, for sure.  So, I made these to use as reference in my classroom. 


I also made these to hang up in the classroom.  It'll be so different beginning the year with students who don't know their numbers!  It'll be a challenge - but I'm up for it!
