Random #2

My post a few days ago was pretty random.  This one is no different.  At work I'm feeling stressed and that I'm running like a chicken with my head cut off.  I can't get a firm enough grasp on everything to make the plans I want to make.  So, you all get to see the ADD-oh-look-it's-sparkly thought process until I get settled down.

First, I've become OBSESSED with fonts.  Like obsessed.  Today, while I've been waiting for my brakes to finish getting fixed, I went through all of my fonts checking them out and reminding myself why I downloaded them in the first place. If you haven't seen the fonts from Rowdy in Room 300, you seriously should hurry and go download them all.  For free.  Girl has some serious font-making-skills.  Here's a few of my favorites but she has lots more!



She's also a fantastic kindergarten blogger.  I know many of you are kindergarten teachers so if you are, hop on over and check out her blog to follow her.  She has some great freebies on there I know you'd love!
I'm still on my digital paper and clip art kick.  Last weekend I created these striped digital papers.  
There are fifty different papers.  I'm a big fan of anything striped (and painted stripes in my last living room!) and so I'm in love with these.  I like the subtle color difference in many of the papers.  I know I'm going to be using them often!  You can click the picture above to head to my TpT store to check them out.
My first grade teachers asked for some help in creating posters for reality and fantasy.  They liked some of the ones they'd found on Pinterest, but many weren't realistic enough to show the difference between reality and fantasy.  I thought it would be most meaningful if what was used for the reality poster was something they could really relate to.  So, I asked one of our middle school students to be a model for our poster.  I didn't want her picture to be going all over cyberspace, so I thought I'd make the posters editable.  That way, you can insert your own picture of a student.
    


You can download it from my TpT store for free by clicking the images above.  It's saved as a Powerpoint file so you must have that to open it.  All you need to do is open, insert, picture, and select the picture you'd like to use.  It's easy peasy.
I'm hoping to get some pictures taken this week to share with you.  I get so busy with my kiddos that I don't think about it!
