Everything is Just Peachy! Introducing Our New Collaborative Blog!

Welcome Fellow Peaches!

I am so excited to be part of a new collaborative blog adventure!  I am joining about 30 other Georgia Elementary School bloggers to create an exclusive, collaborative blog FULL of tips and treats JUST for Georgia teachers!!! 

I'd like for you to meet...

For the first blog post we are doing a blog hop FULL of FREEBIES!  Not just any freebie, but a freebie that is tailored for the end of the school year.  The kids are wild, the weather is warm, and we are all hanging in there.  Each blogger has created an exclusive, end of the year freebie, just for you!

But first, let us introduce ourselves...

My name is Deb Thomas!  I am the author of this blog as well as the "Who's Who and Who's Newwebsite.  I have taught special needs preschool on up to third grade.  I have 39 years of teaching experience and I am a strong advocate for hands-on learning and to keep them moving to engage all of their senses.   

Currently, I am teaching first grade, I have raised four sons, have two wonderful daughters and three grandchildren with #4 on the way.  I am a very busy mother, grandmother, and educator!  I also have four fur-babies that I absolutely adore and they are all rescue animals.  I think I need a farm?

Here is a freebie just for you and I know you will enjoy it!  It will make your last ten days of school a ton of FUN!

  We will be giving away 1 GRAND PRIZE $50 TPT Gift Certificate, plus three other lucky winners will each receive a $25 TPT Gift Certificate!

Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching!

Hi Everyone!  It has been a long time since I linked up with Doodlebugs for a "Five for Friday"!

It is the beginning of my spring break and I am so excited to just sleep IN!

I am a grandma with grandchild #3 just a few weeks old.  Welcome to the world Anna Christine!  

Grandchild #4 is on the way and my sweet Alyssa is bringing this one into the world for all of us to love and enjoy!

I enjoyed doing Social Studies this week with Katie's unit on TpT.  It is one awesome unit and if you don't have it you NEED it!  Thank you Katie!

We had a great time doing some of the activities as a game.  Instead of ONE minute to win it, we did FIVE minutes to win it.  The kids put the Pledge of Allegiance together in less then 3 minutes and had a blast being competitive.  

Today was Fun Friday for my classroom and we had iPads all afternoon.  My kids love having the technology in the classroom and having directed activities.

I hope all of you are safe and enjoy your weekend/spring break!
