1 year Blog-iversary!!!

Well, it has been 1 year since I started this blog-venture.  I have had a good time learning how this whole thing works.  I am so glad I started the blog.  It's been fun and I've gotten to know some pretty cool people through this experience.

As a thank you to the 124 BlogLovin' followers and 68 Blogger followers, I'd like to give a freebie to those who have read my silly little blog about teaching 1st grade- from my perspective.

Click the picture below to get the templates for your classroom.  I thought, with Halloween coming up, these might be fun to make with the kiddos.  The Google Doc shows the template for the wings, body, and nose.  I also added pony bead eyes.  You could draw a cute mouth as well, if wanted.  I did this one with felt, but you could easily use construction paper.  

Well, thank you to all the wonderful folks out there reading my silly thoughts.  Thank you for celebrating the joy of teaching with me!



  1. Congratulations on celebrating one year! I love reading your posts and am so grateful to have met you through this blogging journey. Thanks for sharing this adorable bat. I'll definitely be using it in my classroom! I love the felt...such a great idea. Make sure to check out my Halloween Treat Bag Exchange and text me your address when you get a chance. I have a little something I want to send your way!
