Please Help My Student Fighting Cancer!

{UPDATE: GIO HAS BEEN CANCER FREE FOR OVER 2 YEARS!!!!! HE IS DOING GREAT!! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED PRODUCTS AND WHO GENEROUSLY PURCHASED THESE PRODUCTS DURING THE CAMPAIGN.} 

Plz read then pin or post on blog/facebook/instagram, etc! 
Wouldn't it be devastating to find out that your child has cancer? And then be forced to move in order to save money to pay for his care? That has happened to one of my students. Gio (age 7) was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer in May 2014. After he finished 11 days in the hospital getting his first 2 rounds of chemo, his family of 6 moved in with relatives to save money for medical expenses. I teach a self-contained special ed class, grades K-3, so Gio will be in my class for the next 2 years!! He is a sweet boy who has overcome many obstacles in his life, and the family is so deserving of our help.

I thought I could help Gio’s family by offering a bunch of my items for sale in a bundle at a special rate.
But it ends up that several generous sellers on TpT have donated items from their stores to help so
now there are two bundles that can be purchased!

Bundle #1 has 27 fantastic items ($100 worth of product for only $20), with 830 pages:

Bundle #2 "Back to School Theme" with 13 products and 550 pages, $35 worth of product for only $10:
{LINK DELETED SINCE CAMPAIGN ENDED}

Please consider purchasing, and also I would so love it if lots of people would post this to their blogs,
pinterest boards and linky parties, etc.  and of course facebook, instagram, etc!!! 
Thanks so much!!!!!!!!  Lisa

Abe Lincoln Art


Since I teach a self-contained class of kids grades K-3, I end up teaching some kids for up to 4 years in a row! As a result, often I will come up with alternate art activities for a holiday, etc. so kids don't make the same stuff each year.  This year's Lincoln project was super easy!  Ahead of time I cut each paper plate into a U shape, and then used a glue gun to adhere a small popsicle stick to it. Then kids painted the paper plates black. After they dried, we stapled each plate onto a black stovetop hat.  Kids loved their Lincoln masks!! We did this after reading the book, "Abe Lincoln's Hat."  Super easy and they turned out great!!!  Click here for last year's Abe Lincoln craft.

New Fonts and Products



















I have been working hard over Christmas break on some new products!  I will be putting some new freebies there soon, so please follow my store if you aren't already.


First, I have uploaded some Chinese New Year Vocabulary. This is awesome for special ed or Speech Language therapists because it focuses on 8 simple vocabulary words with simple definitions. Words, definitions and pictures are provided in 7 formats, so there is something for higher functioning students as well as non-readers and nonverbal students.




I've also posteed a fun Christmas Themed CVC Review Game.  It uses a TIC TAC TOE game format. It also comes with blank cards so you can use them for any subject!






Finally, I've been having lots of fun creating some fonts!!  Look for them soon in my my TpT store.. Below is the first freebie I will upload soon...you saw it here first!!!  The freebie version is all caps only, but I'm working on lower case letters to add on, as well as additional fonts with the blank sections filled in with different designs.
Once it has been uploaded to Tpt, please try it out and let me know know what you think in the comments... I will randomly pick a winner who will be emailed the full font (with lower case letters too).  Thanks for reading!!
