I found an awesome deal on children's dictionaries! Very useful in the classroom!

Hey y'all!  I did a periscope today about some awesome children's dictionaries that I found on sale for $2.50 and they were regularly $23.95.  I have a label on my sight that says:  Debbie Miller.  I made a blog post summary about her book Reading with Meaning.  I talk about it in this video!  Hope this helps and comment any questions!

Awesome New Sight Word app for teachers and parents!

I want to share with you an AWESOME new app/website that is in its beta stage.  I was messaged by Melissa with Educasic on Twitter about checking out her app/site.  
I absolutely loved it so I scoped about it a few times and then we did a Blab to ask her questions. 
1st, you make a FREE account on
On the upper right hand corner, you will see "Classroom Code"
Enter there and a pdf of instructions for your parents will produce for you!

I gave these out on the 1st day of school.  My parents immediately started using it.
The site is free for teachers and the app is free for parents until September 15 so you have to send the form out ASAP.
Once, they start using the app, you will get realtime results.

If you have any questions or suggestions, email me at:
or Melissa at:
You can view the recording of our Blab interview on and search: emtysmom-Sight word app on Blab broadcasts

Back to school bulletin board

I am not a big creative person, so this is what I came up with for my bulletin board.  The pictures below shows what it looked like from the beginning to now.  I glue 1 1/2 gros grain ribbon around the edges because all of old stuck on glue.  I added a blue bordette and the other border from Carson Dellosa.  I always use fadeless paper(pictured below) or wrapping paper for my bulletin board backgrounds.
I have learned a lot of tips from the awesome Melanie with Schoolgirlstyle.  I bought some Caterpillar cards from Schoolaids.  I used pocka dot plates for the caterpillar but you can use the solid color(I bought them at Party City.) I used pipe cleaners for the legs and constuction paper for the eyes.
