Morning Work and I Was Recognized!

I can't believe what happened to me today.

I went to a Common Core Training.  

No, that's not the big thing.  I've been to one of those before.  And I actually LOVE the trainings because things are a'changing around these here parts.  That's right.  Uh huh.  That whole "fidelity to the core" is about to be a thing of the past.  

Insert gigantic smile here.  And a happy dance.  And let's have a drink, shall we?  

A drink is all I can manage right now.  I'm actually really really really full because the last time we went to a training, a table near us brought snacks.  And my friends and I were jealous.  This time, we trumped them.  We brought FOOD, not just snacks.  One of my girls brought a crock-pot, no joke.  

I ate all day and couldn't even eat my lunch.  Well, I ate some of it.  But I only enjoyed it a little.

Anywho, I'm at the Common Core training and I presented the whole Question lesson that I did a week or two ago.  The one that I blogged about.  Yeah.  That one.

And at the next break, a teacher from another table came over and crouched down next to my chair.

"Does the name Teeny Tiny mean anything to you?" she whispered.  All stealth like.  Incognito, if you will.

I stammered.  Hemmed.  Hawed.  Coughed.  Debated lying.

Tenny Tiny?  Who's that?  Looky here, strange teacher that I do not know, are you picking on my size?

But I copped to it.  I said, "Yes it does, and yes I am, and SHHHHHHHHH!!!!"

She was adorable!  She shall remain nameless in the event that you might put two and two together and figure this all out.  She obviously did.  :)  She asked to hug me and so we hugged and giggled and then I can't remember the rest.  It was actually very sweet and nice.  Thank you, teacher friend!!!  You made my day!  

In other news, I finally got my morning work up on TpT.  

People, it just about killed me dead.

Dead.

When I first created this a few years ago, I had a PC.  And Microsoft Word.  I was not a blogger.  I did not know TpT existed.  Or that you could create wonderful things on Powerpoint.  So I made 34 folders.  And in each of those folders was a week's worth of printables.

Looking back, it wasn't that smart.

Now.  They're all in one place.  It's really nice, actually.

I made two sets.


This pack has lunch number practice
for those of you whose students need it.
Mine need it.  Desperately.
But we're getting there.  We are.
At least that's what I keep telling myself.
It's hard to really know when I keep hitting myself 
in the head about it.


This pack does not have lunch number practice.
That's for those of you who are super lucky.
Where is it that you teach again?

This year-long morning work has a bunch of stuff that I won't bore you with.   Suffice it to say that penmanship, sight words, beginning and ending sounds, short and long vowels, rhyming words, contractions, compound words, grammar, etc., etc., etc., are included.  It's a LANGUAGE ARTS review.  Of SKILLS.  

However, number one on each page is always asking something about their personal information that they should know so that when you ask them when their birthday is, they don't say, "May.  I mean June.  Wait.  I think it's in October."  And when you ask them what their last name is, they don't say, "Idon'tknow."  Because that is not anyone's last name that I've ever heard of, and I've heard of a lot of last names, not to mention that I have last name envy and pay close attention to last names.  So I know.  And that's not it, friend.

(I usually make a label to stick on the back of their nametag with all that info, but I included a homework piece in the packs so that you can make the parents fill it out with their kids.  Then you could laminate it and the kids could keep it in their pencil box.  Or what have you.  Or whatever.  Bottom line:  you can make the parents do it.)

I have to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to Katie over at Teacher to the Core.   She edited all 34 weeks for me.

On a Sunday.

Yep.

I owe her big time.  If you don't know Katie or follow Katie, you really should!  Check her out!  She's having a contest to give away her printing unit.  Click {HERE} to go enter.

Alright.  So there you have it.

I will definitely give away 3 packs of the Daily Language Arts Review (whichever one you need - with or without lunch numbers).  I'll use the random number generator thingamajig.  I'll pick a winner on . . . oh, let's say Friday.  How does that sound?

And, because I seriously thought compiling this would never-ever-ever happen and that I might accidentally-on-purpose throw my computer out the window and then drive over it as I backed up to go to Coldstone or Baskin Robbins or some sort of Cupcake Bakery . . . I am also going to ask you to do two easy things for me.  Just two little things.  Itty bitty.

1.  Leave a comment with your email address.  In case you win.

2.  Follow my store!  If you want to.  Click {HERE}.   

That's all.

I have to go lay down on the couch now and let my food digest.

  6. Oh wow your friend Katie is a saint! Love these packets! They are truly amazing!

    I love the incognito story. I would probably blow the whole shebang because I would be like Ohhhh Myyyy Godddd it's the Teeny Tiny Teacher over there! It's her! Ahhh and then run over and give you a big hug. You probably wouldn't like that much though. I might have to rethink that strategy if we are to be future friends.

    Anyhoo I love your blog and follow religiously as well as your TPT store. I would love to win those goodies! Fingers crossed!

  9. I would love to win. My class needs the lunch number practice. We were 'spoken to' about not knowing our numbers. Apparently we first graders are the reason the lunch line is backed up out the cafeteria doors everyday.

    No lunch numbers here, just credit cards with their names. But I think I already told you about that.

  131. I love your Quincy and poem! So cool to be recognized. Question: after eating all the food didn't you want to take a nap? I would have had trouble concentrating on the content! Most of all, your stream of consciousness blogging style has me entertained and in stitches! Go, you!

  133. Kristin, if I recognized you at a workshop, I would be so excited! I love your blog and your stories make me laugh! I have just started morning work this year. My kiddos used to read in the mornings when they came in, but this year I've started daily five and needed to have something else for them to do first thing. Your pack looks awesome!

  139. I LOVE reading your blog- you always make me laugh! I don't know what I did before I found it a few weeks ago!
    You have seriously changed my classroom! I have a very ummm... Impulsive?? group of first graders this year that's overwhelmingly populated with boys.. Gold Tags have changed my life!! OMG I'm completely in love with you and forever in your debt for that amazing idea!! (I've always hated the charts/ traffic lights on the board- everyone always goes home and tells who was on red and such... But couldn't find any ideas I liked of what to do.. Until gold tags!!!!!

    Thank you thank you thank you!!!
