I am going to introduce my kids to some new centers this week. We have been doing my version of Daily 5, but I don't like it all that well. Read to someone is my nemesis. So I am going to fix it a little and make it work better for me. That means I need to be more creative, but I need to be. I have been in a rut for a bit, so this will be a good way to get me out of it. And my kids need practice with some other things, so we will throw in some math, too. I know it's not math time, but some of us need all the extra help we can get!
I have made a couple little fun center games for the kids this week. We have 3 days this week of centers/rotations. I am out on Thursday for a meeting, and they will have plenty to do with the substitute to keep them occupied!

I've decided that if I post anything here for use in the classroom, most of the time it will be a freebie. I'm tired of reading blogs that are just a big ad for their TPT store and then the item I like it too expensive for my taste. I guess that makes me cheap, and I am OK with that (so is my hubby). It seems that teachers who are posting on TPT are making things more $$$ and are reaping the benefits, but not from me. There are a few things I have bought that have been worth it, but if it's something I really want/need, I am going to try and make it on my own. It's not as cute as theirs or as creative, but I get the same result. I want to be able to help even just one person who may be frazzled or pressed for time. If I can do that, then I'm good! I will still be putting things on TPT, but those are few and far between.
I have had a busy weekend and I am really tired, thanks to waking up before 3am for no apparent reason! I think it's time for an early bedtime tonight and ready for a busy week!
