I'm in slight disbelief that it is already July 12th.  Seriously?  Almost the middle of July already!  I ventured out to Walmart (my boyfriend's small town only has a tiny grocery and a Dollar General) and back to school stuff is out.  

I'm going back home to civilization (complete with Targets, Walmarts, and other big box stores) next week for a few days and I'm going to get in my classroom and get started on some bulletin boards.  Maybe even take the quick trip to Springfield for some new border.  We'll see.

Anyways.  I've still been on my creating spree for Teachers Pay Teachers.  One of my latest things is an alphabet book for students and also short but silly alphabet poems that I created.

I basically sat down and started thinking with a glass of Kool-Aid...I was trying to access my inner kindergartener.  I wanted short, simple/not too fancy, rhyming, and slightly silly ABC poems.  I used the awesome Creative Clips, by Krista Wallden, to help inspire me and use her ABC graphics for each poem.

I plan on using these little poems when I do a letter a day introduction, handwriting, and songs.  It's quick and easy.  It won't even add too much time to your day.  I also thought I could reuse them when our school starts RTI in September.  The past couple years we've generally started with Letter Name intervention.  My  next thing on the agenda is to make an RTI pack.  :)  I love RTI.  I've said it before and I will certainly say it again.  Some people find it monotonous...but I love that special 30 mins with my kiddos (or 1st grade or the other K class' kids).  I mean the results...the results are fantastic.  It really works!

Anyways, here are some examples of the poems.  Enjoy!  & Don't forget to visit my store if you can't live without these little guys!

Seriously, I love the ring one.  Not true at all for ladies.  ;)

Have a great weekend everyone!  Stay cool, it's supposed to be 95 here in SEK today.
