Happy 3rd Blogiversary GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello there!

PreK Partner is three-years-old!!! During this time I have learned many dos and don'ts (mostly dont's!) about blogging. I have 11 amazing teacher bloggers and TpT sellers joined me in the celebration of this milestone. 


We have a HUGE giveaway for you!!! Starting today until March 26, you can enter our Rafflecopter to win over $150 worth of amazing TpT products.....your pick! 


One question I being asked frequently is: 
what I have learned about the blogging world? 
Well, I also asked these talented ladies the same question and 
here are our answers! 
Grab a cup of coffee or tea and celebrate with us!



I'll start! My name is Janice and I am the owner of PreK Partner. "I have learned many things in this bloggin' world. One of the most important things I have learned is to be transparent and honest with your readers. The readers deserve information from someone who is real, someone who shares some of the same struggles as you, and someone they can relate. Another thing I've learned is to have blogging buddies (or non-bloggers) for support. Someone who teaches your same grade level or maybe someone who shares your same passion would be very helpful to get those creative juices flowing and support you when you're feeling discouraged....yeah, it happens! The most important thing for me are the many relationships we have formed through this platform!"



Next is Kate from Fun in ECSE. "The blogging world has opened up a lot of opportunities for me. I was able to collaborate with and share resources with other teachers in similar fields as myself. I have made some wonderful blogging friendships and learned from these teachers new strategies and ideas to use in my classroom. I was able to start to up a TPT store and help other teachers find resources that are more specific to Pre-K special ed. I have been able to stay up to date on the current research based teaching strategies to use in the classroom and has allowed me to share those with other teachers too."



Ms. Moran from Ms. Moran's Kindergarten  . "I have learned so much, especially from others.  The relationships that I have formed with other bloggers has been amazing.  They are so willing to help you out and give you feedback and advice.  It really is amazing!"



Up next is Michaele from Kidney-Garden. "Blogging has been a great way for me to share what I know and how I feel regarding our youngest learners and the decisions made that affect their perception of school and learning. There's a wide array of education related blogs from which I draw inspiration and much needed affirmation after a stressful day or week. Teachers in BlogLand not only WANT to share, learn and encourage others, they NEED that support, guidance, and occasional commiseration that can sometimes be missing or unavailable within their own grade level, building, or district." 



Here's Elizabeth from Kicking it in Kindergarten. "I have learned so much professionally and personally. The best part had been the relationships I've made and friendships I've formed!" 


Behind Mrs. Price's Kindergators is Mrs. Price. "I have learned how open, honest and trusting it is. They open their world to you and they just let you in! This world is full of passion, enthusiasm, talent, collaboration, cooperation and just a pure love of education! It is a world full of valuable resources and support! It is a world that once you enter, you never want to leave!"


Jackie from Pocket of Preschool. "Everyday I learn something new and grow as an educator and mom as a result! There are so many amazing teachers and mom out there.  I LOVE being a part of the blogging world and am grateful for all the new friends I have made."


Last but not least we have Erin from Kindergarten Dragons. "I've learned that i really enjoy writing about my classroom adventures, while at the same tim realizing how hard it is to get a blog post done once the school year starts. I still have a lot to learn in that area. I'm grateful for all the amazing bloggers I've met along the way and for everything they've taught me, and continue to teach me."


Thank you for your support!!!

Easter eggs and a FREEBIE!

Hello there!

Some of you have already started (or finished) spring break. Well, I am 3 days away from a two-week well-deserved break! 

In my classroom we LOVE Gak! I've decided to make it a tradition and send a Gak-filled egg home right before spring break - and my kiddos love it! I blogged about it a couple of years ago, but this one is even better!


This is the recipe I follow.




One important note: try to find eggs or easter containers without holes in them. If they do have holes, a tiny bit of hot glue will do!.



Once I filled all of the eggs, I put each one inside a sandwich-size baggie. I created this cute tag which I stapled on top of the bag.


This is the final product!

Happy Spring Break!!!

Monthly Calendars

Hi there!

After trying many different ways to keep parents involved and close the school and home gap, we came up with a monthly calendar of activities.



This calendar is created with the purpose of highlighting a daily activity. We include holidays, meetings, featured books, the letter of the week (we use Alpha Friends curriculum), theme activities, special events, and more!

As teachers, this calendar gives us a at-a-glance monthly spread, therefore we must plan a month ahead.

Parents' feedback has been very positive and encouraging. They love to put the calendar on their refrigerator and at dinner time start a conversation about their day.


Grab your FREEBIE template {{{HERE}}}!

Keep learning!
