Sneaky "e" Sneakers

My students are enjoying their study of the Sneaky "e" through these Sneaky "e" Sneakers activities!

From sorting Sneaky "e" words to spelling Sneaky "e" words out of Play-doh, these sounds have been a hit!

Students have been Sneaky "e" Detectives, writing Sneaky "e" words they find in their stories.  Spelling Sneaky "e" words out of toothpicks and rubber bands has been a fun challenge! Drawing Sneaky "e" words out of Sneakers, then writing them in a special way has been motivating in learning these sounds.  For the entire Sneaky "e" Sneaker pack, check out my TPT store: Tiny Treasures By Teacher Tava

Fall Wreath

I purchased these items for under $10 to create a fall wreath. 

I decided to make a wreath that wasn't round and when I saw this cute broom, the pieces started coming together.  I started by wrapping some orange ribbon around the top of the broom.  Then, I added some of the items that I had purchased. 

This is the final result! It is hard to believe that October is almost over!  At least I can keep this wreath up until Thanksgiving!  Happy Fall!

My Girl Cave-My Scrapbook Room!

My husband suprised me one Christmas with all of the cubes and storage units to start my Scrapbook Room! He even painted it my chosen purple colors and added this beautiful light fixture!  Yes, he is a keeper! 


I have all of my buttons, ribbons, eyelets, small chipboard pieces, fasteners, etc. orgainized by
color(s) in these craft containers on the wall shelf.  I organize my stamps by holidays, phrases, pets, etc. on these corner unit shelves.  This is my relaxing getaway!  Lucky for me that it is right in my house!  Happy Scrapbooking to all!
