Familiar Face, New Place!

Welcome to my new blog.  Previously, you might have found me on 2nd Grade Pad.  I will be changing grades for next year.  I am completely skipping 3rd Grade and moving straight to 4th grade.  I am very excited about the new ideas this will allow me to share with you.  For my 2nd grade friends, never fear, my products will still be geared for 2nd-4th grade.  I have promised my dear, sweet 2nd grade coworkers that I won't dessert them, so there will still be plenty of things you can use.  I'm looking forward to see where this move will take me and decided that it was time for a change in my blog to reflect that change.

I hope my former followers will hang with me. For those of you new to my journey, please join my blog as a follower.

Try out my cute glittery social buttons also to become a follower of my Facebook page (where you'll find another freebie), my Pinterest page (LOTS of real pictures), and my TPT store (lots of products).

As a HUGE thank you for joining my new blog, I have a special little unit.  These posters can be displayed in your classroom to help your students with those confusing words know as homophones.  Just click on the rafflecopter and enter your e-mail.  I will e-mail this unit straight out to you.  This offer is only good until Sunday, May 26th (midnight).  Thanks so much for joining in!


Now, step into my world as I share with you 25 years of experience and show you more of

  34. Consider me your newest follower! I hopped on over from 2nd Grade Pad.

    Also stopping by to say that my students LOVED your "You Can Even Read a Cereal Box" activity pack. I recently blogged about how I used it in my classroom as a special activity leading up to our state testing. I rave about the activity(and link to your blog) on my blog-- thirdgradecupcakes.blogspot.com.

    Hope you have a chance to stop on by!

  35. Cynthia, I have enjoyed your blog ALMOST as much as I enjoyed being in your classroom as your Literacy Coach :-)!! You are such a smartie and I'm excited as you venture into the world of 4th Grade! Maybe I'll have a grand son fortunate enough to experience your love and expertise?!! Have a restful summer (Yeah, RIGHT!!!) and good luck with your blog.... keep it coming! Tamara
