It’s technically Wednesday.
Except for me, it’s still Tuesday night and I haven’t gone to bed because I have been working like a crazy person because I am a little bit crazy and a lot hungry and slightly thirsty.
I am still prepping for the So Cal Kinder Conference.
I am still getting ready for Open House which is in two weeks.
I am still holding onto my hair which is more than I can say for Murphie who is in the process of shedding me a fur coat for my Christmas present.
First, I have a confession.
I haven’t finished watching The Bachelor – What Happens In The Fantasy Suite And What Is All The Crying About episode.
I know. I’m a failure.
Second, I don’t think I can blog about it because I have a hair appointment after school and then I am meeting the hubby for dinner and we might do a little shopping. This has nothing to do with the fact that I am going to be a presenter at a conference. Nope.
But I feel bad. I just don’t know where or how I am going to fit in a post about it.
Please don’t look at me like that.
Third, I revised my spring plays from last year.
Anita Mraz says
My kiddos love your plays! We present them to our 5th grade reading buddies and would LOVE to have the spring set!!! Love your blog 🙂
No judgment on not watching the 2nd part of The Bachelor (I think they could've shortened the hometown episode and had it on the reg. night)—I tried to watch while the hubs was home. I couldn't take all his whining so I turned it off to watch in peace later.
Your students are adorable! I don't teach 1st but I am entering a new ESL position starting tomorrow and I know these plays would be EXCELLENT for those little learners.
Dusty Drosche says
Awesome! My kids LOVE these and so do I! I am excited about differentiated ones! That rocks! Thanks so much!
Sonja Heronemus says
Love tghier excitement! So cute. I am blogging about my student teaching at this time, hopefully by next fall I will have a teaching blog!
I would love the bundle! It is so hard to find good reader's theater for kinders! Thanks for the opportunity!
I'd love the bundle. It would be perfect for my first grade RtI group.
Brooke Kendall says
I would love to win the bundle!!! My first grade class has a HUGE range of abilities, so this would be very helpful. Thank you! email@example.com
I fell in love with these when I used your free Valentine Reader's Theater. My Littles begged to practice them which made my heart happy! I would love to win the bundle because like you, I have high readers and I have some that are still beginning to put their strategies together. firstname.lastname@example.org

My kiddos use your winter plays all the time during our Daily 5 choices. They love them (and I do too)! I would love to win the bundle so every student can participate and feel successful!
Amy Steed says
I just started following your blog recently. I love your sense of humor! I purposely skipped watching The Bachelor this season. I think I missed out on some good stuff! Anyhoo, love your blog!

Miss Kindergarten says
Omg I seriously love you. Best post everrrrr (and I almost texted you last night at 11pm but figured you were asleep ((should've known better lol)) but The Bachelor Night Two Lets All Have A Crying Party didn't record!!!!!! I had to google what happened because I was too impatient to wait for the episode to go online! Ha!!!)
My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE your plays. I just started doing them this month and they ask me for them like EVERYDAY! I would love to win your spring ones!
BTW…The bachelor is so dramatically stupid now. I was totally into it until this weeks episode…but now I'm so over it! Not sure want to think for Juan!
Such cuties!!! My students heart your plays! I would LOVE to win another set!
We just did the Valentines play and my kids loved it! Would love to win the spring plays too!
Roxanne Sterling says
I am your newest follower 🙂 I would love to win the Bundle, my K-1 class would love these. It's great for choral speaking !!!!
Thanks and take care.
Last year my class could not do this, I did not even try. But THIS year and THIS class…they can do it and I cannot wait to try it. Thank you for your blog, it keeps me laughing.
Our school is doing reading activities all during the month of March. One of the activities is to do readers theater with our classes. This bundle would be awesome!
Nancy Jones says
Love, love, love them. I would love to have them and the bundle.
Susan Allen says
Betting Nancy Jones is from my school in Madisonville, Texas! She teaches first and I teach K. AND I love, love, love them!! I would really like to have them all, but do not want to be greedy! So if you could just send me the K pack I would be more than happy!!! Otherwise, guess I will be happy to buy them! Love your work, love your blog! FYI…..teachers at my school love you, and I introduced them!
Susan Allen says
AND today is my birthday! What a great present this would be!!
These are amazing, as usual! My Reader's Theater box has room for a few more plays, and my firsties sound just like yours this year – wide range of readers. I'd love the bundle to help differentiate. 🙂 Thanks so much! ~Crystal
We love YOUR reader's theater bundles!!! This spring bundle would help me differentiate for my firsties perfectly! Your two girlies are darling! Thanks for sharing their reading.
Lori Raines says
How cute to see your students reading your plays! I would love to have your bundle!
Julie Davis says
This are amazing and I would love to start using these with my Kinders. They would absolutely love them!!!!!
Pat Whiteland says
My students just loved the Valentine play and actually thanked me for writing it. I told them that I didn't write it, that the Teeny Tiny Teacher did…..that blew their minds. They want to know if you are somewhere in the room!!!!! Would love to win the bundle!
Would love these!!:)
Kristi Smith says
Wow…these plays look absolutely AMAZING!!! The bundle would be the greatest gift that you could give to my Grade 2 class =). As a group, they are underachieving WELL below the standards in literacy and 1/3 of the 18 are on IEPS! I am mad crazy about Reader's Theatre, but have been struggling to find resources that are both level-appropriate and interesting. I would be absolutely honoured to be the VERY LUCKY recipient <3 <3 <3. Thank you for considering me =). email@example.com.
Jennifer Cailor says
I would LOVE the bundle!! Your Reader's Theaters are awesome! 🙂
Lori L says
I adore your readers theaters and so do my class. It seems to be the one activity that holds my students interest longer than 2 minutes this year. Thank you for the chance to win 🙂
Sarah Burgess says
I'd love to have the bundle!
LOVE the video! So cute! Thank you for making different levels for your plays- now all my kids can read at their own level! Fantastic!
Stacey Evans says
Love your plays and so do my kiddos! Would LOVE the bundle!
Tami Smith says
I teach TK and my kids would love the Kinder Kids Reader's Theater. We are working on speaking and others listening and this would just be great!
Mrs. W says
I have been eyeing your reader's theater packs….would love to have the bundled version to try them out and hopefully get some more this weekend with the TPT sale! Rebekahpetersen@gmail.com
Mrs. Thomas says
Pick me, pick me! I would absolutely love your bundle.
Too Funny! I taped Bachelor Day 2 and have only gotten past the first fantasy suite date. Waiting for kiddos to go to bed … early tonight!! Would love the bundle!!
Melissa Young says
I did watch Day 2 but I have already vowed to avoid the reunion/recap next week. Just too much. I have your Begiining of the Year plays and would love a spring version!
I tell everyone about your blog. My favorite 🙂 Sound like I am bribing you to pick me, but it is true! Love having appropriate fun for my kinders! Yay! Thank you! And the girls are adorable. Cindy firstname.lastname@example.org
Christine C says
We love your packets! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
Thanks Kristin for another giveaway! My class loves your plays! Those girls are cuties. I pulled up your blog today on my phone in the staff room to share some of your comments about the bachelor. We were having a very lively discussion and I needed to share your thoughts with the group. Haha. Thanks for the continued entertainment (educational and otherwise)!
Mrs. Brown says
I would sooooo love these! I would definitely get the bundled set! I have readers in Kindergarten this year as well and I just know they would love using these!
I just bought the beginning readers ones you have on TpT and we did our first week of it this week. My kids LOVE them! They are so excited to perform on Friday….and I only know because they have told me EVERY SINGLE DAY since Monday :). I would love the Spring Plays for kinder kids….and so would my kids.
I would love to have the Kg. reader theater packet. I teach gifted preschool and all of them are reading. It would be great to have something different to offer.
Love your blog!
Lori Huhne says
I would love to win the bundle! The Kinder Kids plays would be perfect for some of my struggling first graders.
Mrs. Sam says
So excited for your latest plays! Thanks for the chance to win. Also hoping I can figure out how to watch your kiddos perform!
Your plays are terrific!! I would love to win the bundled set for my budding thespians.
Loved your post! But, oh, darn! I was looking forward to your hilarious post about the bachelor.
Heather Edmonds says
Your girlies are ADOrAbLE! I would love to use your bundled set of plays during guided reading. What a great way to work on fluency! 🙂 email@example.com
Your Kinder pack would be great for my kinder friends! It would be perfect for literacy centers!
Hardlyable Farm says
The Bachelor drama was way overrated in my opinion…and I stayed awake just to see it….I was curious:) I love your partner plays. Great Idea. I could use the bundle..it would meet the needs of my wide range of readers. Thanks for the chance to win it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Rebecca Schaubhut Worrel says
We have done Reader's theater plays earlier this year, and they were A HIT with my kids! I would love to own a copy of this set to share with them!
We LOVE your plays! The kinder ones will be perfect for my intervention group.
Amber O. says
You are too talented! Just love the video of those two sweethearts performing!! Thanks for sharing. Can't imagine why your class is so dramatic?:)
I love your plays, so even if I don't win, I'll be buying them! Win win for me! email@example.com
Would love, love, LOVE these! I just found out the hard way that there's no highlight function in PowerPoint myself!
Sherry Rich 🙂
Oh I wish I would have seen this sooner! I would love both sets… I have high and low readers in my class too.
Jane Drummond-Mullarkey says
I loved trying your Valentine freebie with my first grade granddaughter! My kinders loved it too when we tried it at school. I'm excited to see you have a special kinder one! I hope I win but if I don't I'll be visiting your store!
Laura Scheunemann says
Wow… it looks like something even I could be successful with pulling off in my classroom. Good JOB!!! 🙂 I'd love to try the Beginning Readers pack. firstname.lastname@example.org
Fun! Thanks for offering the bundle as a prize option, too! Can't wait to win! 😉 lorepuckett at gmail dot com
I would love a copy of your readers theater packet for my firsties!!! Mdecrane@gmail.com
I would love, love, love them for kinder! My daughter who teaches 1st loves your plays. We are so excited to see you this Friday !
Jenna Teddy says
I'd love both!! Just want we need to change things up a bit for the 4th quarter. Love your blog! Jenna Teddy email@example.com
Diane Daniel says
My cute, adorable actor wanna' bes would love to have the chance to act out your plays! I would totally love to win the bundle, as it would put a great big super plus for differentiation in our classroom! Thanks so much for being so creative!
Love the bundle! Since I have first grade readers and first grade beginning readers it is just perfect!
Always love your blog … Even without Talk About It Tuesday! I'd love to win the Kinder Kids pack. Thanks!
My students loves your plays-can't wait to see the beginning reader set!
I love your blog! Today I presented at a technology workshop at my school and shared your blog with the primary teachers. I told them how you make me laugh out loud when I read your blog. Thank you so much for the plays. My little ones love the. I will have to share that we can use "action" when starting our plays. Maybe this will prevent one friend starting from starting the play while the other friend is under his desk picking up a crayon he just saw!
I always look forward to reading your blog! I would love to win the bundle for both my K's and 1st's.
Thanks for the chance to win! I love your blog!
Mrs. Glick says
The bundle looks great! Thanks for the opportunity!
Katie P. says
Love your plays!! Would love to win this set!
How cute. You are forgiven for not posting about the bachelor. Maybe by the weekend. I really could use a laugh after my week so far. I would love the easy reader. BTW, is it Friday yet.
krissy hutten says
OMG!!! …as I was reading your post and watching the adorable girls perform "I see a Spider"…I heard my 13 year old scream (almost to the top of her lungs) that I had to come "quick as slick" to kill a SPIDER that perched himself on her ceiling!!!! What are the chances??? Oh my Sweet Petunias!!!! I dislike spiders…I dislike spiders…I dislike spiders! 😉 firstname.lastname@example.org
I NEED the bundle pack. I teach first and have highsey-highs and lowsey-lows…and not much in the middle. And it's already on my tpt wish list, but if I win it, then I can buy other stuff and convince my husband that I am MAKING money by buying even more because there was a sale and I got it free and I couldn't not buy it ALL, right?!
Mrs. Turk says
I began my reading (of your blog) to see what you thought of the crazy Bachelor episode…. and wasn't sad too long when I went on to read about one of my favorite products….the plays!! I LOVE them! I've gotten 2 of yours and we can't get enough of them! They are adorable!!
I, too, videotaped my kids– they love to watch themselves perform! I would love to use the kinder kids version for 2 of my little sweeties, what an awesome job, Kristin. Good luck fitting it all in…its all good, right? Just
" keep on swimmin' ! " **looking forward to your review of Juan Pablo, ha! One of the oddest episodes yet! cant wait to see what you think! Ha!
