New mini foldable book!

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Saturday, February 25, 2012,

I know it has been a while since posted last... I'll blame it onthis website. I have been trying my best to create my own clutter free classroom. Ugh. It's not easy. I've only been teaching five years and my room was beginning to get a little cramped. The discovery of this site has coincided with my student teacher coming and has definitely worked in her favor! All that old or barely used cra... err, stuff has been parking itself in a nice corner box for student teacher to take with her when ...

Experimental freebie!

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Sunday, February 12, 2012,
Alright, folks. I've been feeling some creative juices today. To prove it, I've uploaded a freebie to my TpT store! I've seen lots of little foldable books to review certain skills and thought, "I can do that!" So, I did. This is my first one and I have already started on some others based on things my kids need to review. One of things they need to review is using quotation marks. I know, "Why the heck does a second grader need to know how to use those!?" I wonder the same thing... and the b...

Student Teacher is in full take over mode. I knew this week would come, and it has been as hard as I thought it would be to just sit back and shut up. How do you watch that kid cutting stuff into shreds inside his desk, the kid passing notes, the one about to eat a paper clip, and the other that already sliced his finger open because he was playing with the scissors and NOT say anything?! Eesh. It's been rough. BUT Student Teacher is doing an awesome job and it has been a blast to watch her g...

Taking the leap!

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Thursday, February 2, 2012,

Mr. has been on evening shift the past two weeks (blugh, gag, sniffle, tear, whine). BUT all this alone time has given me plenty of opportunities to get bored up to my eyeballs and get creative. Which is why I started a teacherspayteachers account! WOOT! I started it last week and already had one purchase! So, I am $2.70 richer than I was a week ago... yeah, doesn't sound like much, but two dollars never sounded so exciting to me before! HAHA! Check out my stuff in my store, please!
Tonight I'...

About Me

Amateur Extraordinaire I was born to a farmer and a farmer's daughter. I, however, was just a tiny little thing when my parents had to move from their farm. All my life I heard stories of "the farm" and the life they had there. From a young age, I knew I would have my own one day. While it is far from the farm my daddy had, my Mister and I bought our first place in August of 2011. Sitting on six acres is a homestead we're making into our own slice of heaven on earth. Follow along as we stake our claim on this piece of earth the LORD has entrusted to us.
