Christmas is coming

It has been awhile but with two kids there doesn't leave much time for blogging.  I have been busy reading all the terrific blogs and I am truly amazed how everyone has time to teach, run a family and create amazing resources.  Since Pinterest has come out I have been totally addicted and found amazing ideas.  My daughter and I were busy today making some terrific finds.  I do not take credit for any of these ideas they were all found on Pinterest but these are our creations.  My daughter painted the black on the Santas (between painters tape).  Enjoy!  All projects can be found on my pinterest page.http://pinterest.com/kworld/christmas/  Come follow me and if you need an invite add a comment.  Also come join me on my blog I am not teaching right now but will be posting some great finds.

Having a Pinning Good Time


With so much going on at home, baby and preschooler, I don't have too much time to work on school things but I have time to PIN.  I usually get 1/2 hour in the morning to read or quickly read my blogs on google reader.  I usually just pinit and hope to get to it later.  Somethings catch my eye and I download a freebie or just need to continue reading.  Here are a few things I have loved or need to spend some more time with.
Wouldn't this be great to build in your classroom.  The directions are there to follow.  Super easy I already have my husband thinking about making me some for next year.

As always Chalk Talk had great ideas on classroom set up and design.  She attended a Debbie Diller workshop.  Wow what great ideas.

Life in First Grade had a great witch.  The pattern is there to download.  My 3 year old made one and loves it,  I will take a picture of hers and add it.  She also made a hand bat that I make with my class every year.

My favourite new art website made these awesome pumpkin jack-o-lanterns.  I added this through my pinterest site so you can see where you can find more great pumpkin ideas.  Come follow me on Pinterest I am always pinning new ideas.  Find my link at the top right corner.  While your at it start following my blog!  If you need an invite to pinterest send me an email at kellilundie@yahoo.com.  I will get you pinning soon.

I am back..well sort of

Well I have been busy while I have been away from my blog.  I had baby number two in August (a boy!!!!) and all of a sudden have become a stay at home mom for my 3 1/2 year old daughter and a newborn.  Much different life taking my daughter to preschool twice a week and trying to manage all the other things on the go.  I think managing a classroom of 20 Kindergarten students is much easier.  Just means I need to get my life back into a routine. 

This year is going to be very different, I don't go back to work until September 2012.  I am looking forward to exploring and seeing life through the eyes of both my kids.  Now that my son is 2 months I think I can get myself ready and not feel like my heads in the clouds.  I have started to take time for myself each day.  Reading all the great ideas on the blogs, yoga a couple days, and trying to get outside in our little village town Steveston.  It is the place where they are filming the new tv series Once Upon a Time on ABC.  I will post pictures if they start filming again.

I know I kept saying I will post post pictures of my class and some of the things we worked on last year.  I will do that and I am going to also see if I can share some of the great things we did.  I don't know how all the great bloggers juggle work, their blog and all the amazing units and materials they make.  I have envy but so happy people share as it is wonderful.  I am enjoying looking at everything and filling my dropbox of freebies to use next year and have been pinning like crazy.

Please drop me a line, ask me questions, let me know what you would like to see ( I need a little direction to my blog)

Drop Box and thank you to Rowdy in First Grade

After two weeks of being back  I think I am starting to resurface from the depths of my classroom.  I promise I will start posting things for my one and only follower.  Thank you for following.

Once again I have been poking around all the wonderful blogs.  I just found the most amazing program.  Dropbox.  (Thanks Rowdy in First Grade)  It allows you to load 2GB onto their database and share it between as many computers as you would like.  I have 3 home, school and a laptop and files all over the place.  I also lost a ton of files from my lap top when my computer died and I had to buy a new hard drive.  I am still hopeful I can recover the hard drive and all my Jump downloads from teachers pay teachers.

So now that my files are organized off to enjoy the sunshine and cheer on my Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators tonight.  GO CANUCKS GO!

Summer Spectacular Giveaway with First Grade Factory and Crazy for First!! 


Check out the great giveaway on their blogs!!!!!

Rules for Sharing

This is going out to the blogging world.  Does anyone know what I can share on my blog.  I love looking at everyone else's blog but not sure where to go from here.  I have made lots of stuff but I don't have the right to use the images.  Usually they're from google images.  Everyone has such great graphics and I was just wondering if you can share anything as long as you don't sell it.  As soon as I get back to school I will start taking pictures of my classroom.

After a few months off...

Well I am going back to it after the past 3 months off.  I was having some complications with my pregnancy so the doctor had me off work since January 13th.  It wasn't so much fun especially since I missed all the fun themes and units I like to teach over February and March.  At least I get to go back with Spring in the air and Easter just around the corner.  Thanks to all the bloggers out there who have uplifted me and have given me lots of ideas to role with.  Let's hope I can get back to the last 3 months with a smooth and easy transition.
