Safe Buddy Website

So, I have been very focused on spreading the word of Safe Buddy to as many people as possible. However, I am sadly the smallest fish ever in the deep abyss of the ocean. I decided to make a website just for this endeavor. I wanted to help people find the perfect Safe Buddy for them and to have a place for everyone share their Safe Buddies. I have been working for a while and am finally done! Check it out for yourself and leave a comment and let me know what you think. If there is something you want but don't see just contact me and I will make it for you. If you like this idea, please spread it with others so that one day every soldier will have their own Safe Buddy (:

Thanks a bunch and have an awesome day!

Slip and Slide

Sweet mother of mercy it is cold! I don't know where you live but here in the not normally frozen state of Maryland it is a hot 13 degrees. Considering our central heat has been broken for the past two years, our little electric heaters have been keeping it a balmy 62 degrees in the house. I've got on two sweaters and two pairs of pants... brrr. Hopefully it is warmer wherever you are. At least now we're getting some snow! While pretending to be in warmer weather this past week, my class had a slip and slide learning experience to learn how easy it is to add to the number 10. Now they understand why it is so important to try make a group of 10 whenever they are adding. Click the link below to check it out:

Valentine's Day Crafty Fun!

I can't believe that Valentine's Day is almost here! Boy did the beginning of 2015 fly by! I was tired of some of the same old word searches and coloring sheets and wanted something more crafty for my students. Of course my students had to be my guinea pigs and they had the best time making these. I came up with party placemats (with a place for your plate and drink of course):

Loomy bracelets:

Picture Hangers - just add a clothespin and some string (:

If I had to guess their favorite, I'd probably say it was the heart-pouch necklace. Each student had a sheet at their desk with their name on it. Everyone walked around and wrote one reason why they liked each person in the class.
Then they went back to their seat, cut out their notes, and heart pouches. Then they glued their heart pouches together with some wet glue and stuck their notes inside (I helped them tie on the necklace string). They loved being able to reach in and grab the little notes inside and read why someone in their class liked them.

My personal favorite is the heart pocket headbands. The students layer the heart onto the headband to make a pocket and then place small "smile" hearts inside. Whenever they see someone who looks unhappy or sad they can give them a smile (: I love helping students to be happy, the way their face lights up when they get these smiles is priceless!

Well I hope your students loved these crafts as much as mine did. You can pick up your own here:
