Preschool Mazes

I had a student last year that was really interested in mazes. 
 I had a hard time finding some that he could be successful at on his own.
  Most of the ones out there are designed for older aged kids.  I created these with him in mind.  
There are 10 different mazes to choose from. 
 Just a fun way to build those "left-to-right" and "fine motor" pre-writing skills
 as well as problem solving skills!

I'm Back!!

I have been out of the loop for the past two weeks!
  Some upstairs plumbing issues made it "rain" in my kitchen! 
 Wouldn't you know it would be right over the table where my laptop is!

I ordered a new computer right away but had to wait almost two weeks for it to arrive!  Grrrr!  
When it did arrive of course it didn't work! 
 But after 6 hours with the Geek Squad at Best Buy they had it all ready to go.
  Get this, the problem was that my BRAND NEW computer needed 55 updates!  
The Geek Squad said that's how fast technology is growing!
Crazy to think!!
Very happy to be back!  Didn't realize how bad I was addicted!!

Preschool Assessment Books (FREEBIE)

I discovered that 18 hours in a car gives you a lot of time to think.
 (Unless you are teenage boys, all they need is their phone: texting, music and You Tube) 
 I started thinking about assessment tools for this year.  I came up with these three books. 

 The first page is for the first week of school to get that first snapshot of each student's personal skill level. There are four pages after that to collect another sample at the end of each quarter.  My thought is to keep all of these pages together in book form to see each student's progress or weakness at a glance.  I can also use them for parent/teacher conferences, IEP meetings, and at the end of the year it can be a keepsake added to their portfolio for their parents to see their growth. 
 You can get them for free at my TpT  store.

 I had an amazing time watching my son graduate from basic training. 
 He will now be calling Arizona home for the next 8 months.  So far away!!!!!!
