Monday made it!

It's Monday that means I need to have made something to share with all of you...only I haven't had half a minute to get creative, I've had a really busy weekend and I started a new job today! I worked in my friends restaurant all week last week, we went to the county fair this weekend, and made a trip home to Michigan for birthday celebrations (2 of my nephews and my daughter all have birthdays this week)! And I accepted the preschool position I talked about, they do summer care and wanted me to start today!! I spend most of Sunday trying to get somethings in order for the classroom!  So I didn't break out the crafts but I did make some digital items to upload to vistaprint I wanted to share with you!!

My where are you board! I ordered it on a lawn sign so it would be really sturdy!!

Wow word collector (used during daily 5/cafe) for expanding vocabulary

And a daily schedule board, I ordered this on a small banner I'm working on schedule cards to match so be on the look out for those sometime this week!

Feel free to use any of these picture files for uploading to vistaprint! I don't have them saved as PDF or I would offer them to you in that format sorry!

I have another interview tomorrow!! I appreciate any and all prayers, thoughts, comments to help me keep my chin up!

  4. Wow.. I feel like you just explained my previous job! When I first graduated college, I got a job at a preschool (that also offered before care & after care.. lunch was served in the classroom, no janitors, rest time right after a messy lunch, etc.). It was great because I had a job, but I totally understand where you are coming from! It definitely starts to feel like daycare & no matter how hard you try to make it not day care & no matter how many times you tell people it's not day care, it's hard to shake that feeling! I hope things work out with that interview! Fingers crossed! =)

  5. I worked at a daycare after college too. Not much got taught between nap times, breakfast, lunch etc. And parents picked and dropped off their kids at all times throughout the day. Good luck with your interview!


  6. Amy, Whew! That made me exhausted just reading it. . . I could hear your voice! And I'm sure you even left out parts of the day that would have made your post even longer!
    I teach 2nd graders and I know in the beginning of the year they are more like first graders and are pretty needy. However I know in time, they will grow more independent and we'll be just fine.
    Dealing with preschoolers is definately different. Those teachers are like middle school teachers. . . you must have a "gift" in order to work with them. Not everyone can do it. .. and I'm glad there are those who can. But it's not me.

    I will add your name to my prayers. I hope the job interview goes well. What grade level is it for? I see that you are in Goshen, is that where the job is? I live in Sturgis, so I'm kind of familiar where Goshen is.
    I hope that your day goes smoothly so that you can be fresh and clear when you interview later on tomorrow!

  8. I totally understand your woes! I worked in a preschool for 2 years, and we had to do all of that to. Definitely made me yearn for a traditional teaching job in an elementary school! I am in the same boat...we just moved and I am looking for a teaching job.

    Good luck on your interview!

  12. Fingers and toes crossed. Good thoughts sent your way. I'm going to be so excited for you when I read your post about getting the teaching position you want. It will happen.

  13. I hate to ask you this but someday when you have the time and the energy would you consider redoing this same charts with the blue and green you used for the some of the previous activities.

  14. Good Luck with your interview! I could feel my stress level rising as I was reading your post. I had flashbacks as I was reading. Ahhhhhh! I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for following me. I love all of your ideas and colors. I am now a follower.

    Good Luck!
