My most asked question:
How do I organize my TpT materials.
I have to be honest with you, it has taken me several attempts to finally get it right.
My storage containers use to be like a Ziploc bag explosion.
I couldn't close the bags because the materials were to big, which meant that I was always missing pieces because they would fall out.
Then I found these. They are the key to how I'm organizing my TpT materials.
They are Pen + Gear Poly Zip document holder. I have been finding them at Walmart for .97 cents.
I taped the direction sheet of each activity to the outside of each ploy zip.
There is plenty of room to hold all of the materials for each activity and the best part, nothing falls out.
They slide nicely into a Sterilite Ultra Latch 30 Qt. Storage Container. I found these at Target.
I'm able to fit in a whole months worth of activities into on storage container.
They also stack nicely for easy access.
We all know that planning is our friend. When we plan in advance it saves us time and most of all the feelings of being…
Having a plan gives us the freedom of being present with the children in our classroom.
It gives us the opportunity to be intentional with our teaching when needed, but also gives us the power of being flexible to meet the needs of our students.

Assessments are a vital component for a high-quality early childhood program. They are an important tool in understanding and supporting young children's development.
Assessment rings are a great way to assess your little ones. You are able to put one ring in your pocket and assess the child where they are at in the classroom. I have found that when it comes to assessing preschool children if you call them up to do an assessment they freeze, but if you approach them while they are at play and ask them a few simple questions they are more successful with the assessment process.
You can track their progress with the pre and post student assessment data sheets.
Looking for a way to get those piles of papers off your desk?
Then the digital assessment tool is for you. You can have everything at the palm of your hand and best of all the students don't even know that they are getting assessed they think they are playing a game. Students need to flip through the slide show and answer questions, you can document the findings on an editable PDF file right from your tablet as they answer each question. Just simply tap the square for each measure they know.
Each learning domain has it's own PowerPoint slide show. This allows you to have the freedom of assesses the domains that you need without having to find the needed assessment in one long packet.
