I am going to have a tiny pity party for a moment now.
Being in the position that I am in... Part time Instructional Assistant & Part Time Intervention Specialist in a tiny school, teacher appreciation week usually seems to bypass me. Not to whine or complain but I see all the great things that the classroom teachers have received and it can be frustrating at times. I don't teach for all the glory and the amazing paycheck...NOT... but I teach because I love it and because I love watching kiddos be successful! However... it is nice to be appreciated sometimes. Any of you other pull-out/resource teacher out there feel this way?
We do a volunteers appreciation luncheon on Wednesday and my school asked me to do the cupcakes! For those of you who don't know, I have a very small little side baking business. I do cupcakes, cakes, and cookies and I am doing 72 cupcakes for the luncheon. Yay!! I am hoping that this will spark some more business over the summer to get some more money coming in! So I baked all of those after school today and am just now finished up. I will leave you with an ABC book freebie that I made for my kinders summer work packets. I am sure many of you have your own version of this, but just in case, here is mine!
This is the cover page.
And here is a sample page. Students are instructed to search for pictures of things that begin with the letter at the top of the page. I also encourage them to start thinking of words, writing them on the page, and have their parents help them with spelling them.
To assemble: Fold the over page normally. For the other pages, fold them the opposite way so that the fold crease is out and the 2 pages folded are stapled into the "spine". Let me know if that doesn't make sense... It's late and my brain is about mush haha.
I hope someone finds it cute and useful. Remember, if you download, please leave me a little comment and let me know what you think!
OMGosh... I almost forgot.....This past weekend my husband and I bought a new car... and it's all mine! A new 2013 black Ford Explorer! I just love it!
Anyways, have a great week everyone!
