What I Use...

For those of you who have asked how I make my cards....

Here's what I use!

These Prismacolor Colored Pencils are AMAZING! Somewhat expensive, but definitely worth the investment. 

I would recommend Prismacolor to any artist! 

A few features I love about them...

*They draw incredibly smooth! They blend so easily to create the same effect as chalk or paint.
*The color is rich and vibrant even on dark paper
*These pencils last FOREVER! I have been using mine for seven years and I use them.
*Prismacolors come in all different quantities. You could spend a little and get basic colors, or go for the awesome package of every color imaginable!!

I kinda like them...a little ;)

Ready to go!

Tomorrow I start my student teaching at Southside Christian School! I am so thrilled! I love the school, and my cooperating teacher, Missy Gentile is amazing :)

Last week we got everything ready and met the kiddos and parents. 

All the teachers created paper plate representations of themselves  for a "Welcome Back to School" bulletin board...

I'm so excited for this! We made gumball machines as an incentive for fact family memorization. Each student gets to add a colored yard sale circle--GUMBALL--as they memorize their facts!  I cannot wait to see them filled color!

I adore this idea! The Bushel of Blessings was filled with our class wish list. On open house night when the parents came, they each picked an apple with something to bless the class with :)


This class is ready for little learners...

...and I am ready to learn from them and Mrs. Gentile about teaching!

I can't wait for First Grade ;)
