Back to School Bash


Back to school!! School actually started August 11th.I have had my kiddos for three weeks and we have a great little community/family vibe going on. One of my favorite classroom activities is Foodie Friday. My students look froward to it all week.

Here are the Foodie Friday snacks we have made so far.

I created this to help my students write about and illustrate the snacks we create. This can be made into a cute class book or individual student books.
Just click on the picture to go to my TpT store.

Thirty Minute Thursday-Meals Made in 30 Minutes

Hello everyone I am so excited to share a quick weeknight meal idea with you! Getting a good meal on the table can be hard during the school year!!
Meatloaf is my husbands favorite food. I think he would eat it every night if I made it. This is a quick school night recipe I use often.

I also make "Cheesy Corn" to go with the meatloaf. This is a stick to your ribs kind of meal.

This is one of my favorite things for cooking quickly. Each square is equal to one clove of garlic, just pop and go!!

I serve "baked"potatoes with this meal. I use the microwave to quickly cook the potatoes and Sister  Schubert rolls round out the meal.

Building Blocks - Week 1 - Meet The Teacher

I am so excited to link up with some awesome bloggers for The Building Blocks of B2S hosted by the amazing Mrs. D's Corner.


For this "Meet the Teacher" post I am going to introduce or reintroduce myself a little. This year will be my 7th year teaching and my 7th year in kindergarten. I love the little ones so much. They keep me on my toes and teach me so much.
I was born in Bosnia and immigrated to the US in 1993. I knew that I wanted to teach after my teachers took such an interest in my success in school and life. They truly cared about me.
I have a mini doxie,he is my baby. I'm sure he thinks he is a person.

When I am not teaching or creating TpT products I woke at my parents cafe. This picture is from the grand opening of their second location.

One of the things that I LOVE doing with my students is Foodie Friday. We make a snack based on our weekly theme. 

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better! Anything else you want to know?

BTS Reflect and Refresh pt2

Communication-I would like to make more positive phone calls this year.

Organization-I am labeling more and finding specific places for things. I will make sure to put things away and not create piles.

Content-I am going to have more hands on and authentic learning opportunities for my students. 

My Big Summer- This summer I worked at my parents cafe every day. I didn't work on TpT things because I was so busy and tired. I completed my second round of whole30 and lost a few more pounds. I spend so much time with my family and my younger sister and i took and impromptu trip to North Carolina.
