One Week Down

We just finished our first week.  The kids are very chatty, but a very nice group.  I posted some pictures on my web page if you care to look.  There is a tour of our room, and some pictures of the kids presenting their 5 things I like.  It helped the kids get to know each other a little bit. View the whole website at Mrs. Kestner's Second Graders are Groovy .

Spelling Sale

This is a packet of 40 spelling test forms. Each form contains lines for as many as 20 words. The page also includes a cute graphic from Thistle Girl Designs. A different graphic is on each sheet. I find that by using these cute graphics it makes the spelling test a little less painful. 20% off at TPT.

Reward Punch Cards

Motivate Students To Achieve Specific Goals With These Colorful Punch Cards

These cards feature 10 spaces you can punch out when students accomplish a preset goal. When all 10 have been punched out, students can return the card to you for a reward. Use an unusual punch so they can not punch their own circle. (not that they would) These can be used for behavior, homework, working hard etc. They can be printed on card stock and cut out. There are 8 cards to a page. I have several more themes in my TPT store. If you do not see a theme that works for you, email me and I will create a custom design for your theme at the same price.   My 30% off sale runs until midnight Sunday.
You can download the Punch Cards below at
