August Currently & B2S!!

Okay so I'm linkin' up with Farley:

My favorite TpT Unit is from Inspired Apple - Abby's Crazy for Kinders pack.  Jitter Juice is such a hit & my class is loving all the sorting, rating, & friendship finding activities.

Fingers crossed that I can get a haircut & color squeezed in this weekend - I am SUPER excited to get new glasses on 8/23 too.

I needed a stylus BAD - my district purchased mClass & this is a DIBELS app that allows all testing to take place on our iPads.  Using fingers & gestures was HORRIBLE, so I'm off to find a pink stylus so I can be prepared for my upcoming assessment days.

Happy B2S teacher friends,

Miss Kristan King


  1. I soooo want to do Jitter Juice, but my district has a strict policy about food in class. I THINK I might can get away with flavored carbonated water. But not the fun stuff :-( How did your juice turn out?

    1. Mine too...but I keep in on the DL! We couldn't find lemon sherbet, so we used orange & it was WELL LOVED!

      My principal allows us to do the fun stuff, but we run a tight ship when it comes to our wellness policy. Some things just can't be "substituted" & many of those carbonated drinks aren't much better than soda!

  2. I wish I had a personal grocery shopper too!!!! Oh how life would be a little easier with one of those!! Thanks for sharing, I can't wait to read more post.


    1. It is my least favorite activity - grocery shopping. Today was my 1st day back & I needed to run to the store for some things {I just grabbed something fast, instead of going to the store - THAT's how much I dislike grocery shopping!}

      Have a great 2013-14 school year Jamie!

  3. I want to do Jitter Juice this year. Like you, I need a new haircut and clothes. Oh, I also love The Wizard of Oz. I'm going to have to check out that soundtrack. Best of luck with this school year. Glad I found you through the linky!

    The 2nd Grade Surprise

    1. Thanks for the comments - Jitter Juice was such a hit they asked for it on Day 2 {Ha, nice try!!}.

      My room has an Oz theme this year & I'm excited to play the soundtrack as "working music" - hope you have a great B2S. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. It sounds like you are already started back to school? Oh my! I love First Day Jitters and jitter fun. I have been seeing a lot of the OZ theme floating around this year, how cute!

    Have a great school year!

    1. Yes, teacher workdays & B2S trainings were Mon.-Wed. & kids started Thurs. We do start early but I get a 2 week fall & spring break {so no COMPLAINTS here - the extra long breaks are really nice}!

      I saw a bit on TpT & got inspired! Thanks for stopping by Wendy.
