Gearing up for school with a few new units!!

Well, school is starting soon and you know what that means....
panic mode is setting in!! Yep, it finally hit me!

Oh yes, if you're a teacher you know that feeling!
That feeling that time is closing in and there is just no way you'll be able to get EVERYTHING on your 'to-do' list done in time! 

Please tell me I'm not alone in feeling overwhelmed, nervous and in full panic mode!?!?

I've tried to put my self a step ahead of the game this year by making some units of skills that I know my team covers in the first few weeks of school.  Some of the first things we teach/review with the kids are things like shapes, colors and numbers.  We of course review all of these skills while still teaching school and classroom routines, manners, names and everything else!!  (Insert that overwhelmed feeling again--GEEZ!!!  Breathe, Liz, breathe!) 

Anyhow, here are a few things I've completed in the past few weeks!
I hope you can use a few of them! 

First up, my Apples Galore Unit!! Everything you could need when teaching about apples!

(It's on sale now!)

Next up, my color unit!
This unit is great for teach all about color and their names!!
(It's on sale for a short time!)

Next up, my shapes unit!

And lastly, my 'Welcome to Kindergarten' pack!!
I'm so proud and excited about this pack!  It has 8 different activities that some kindergartners know coming into school and they could use as great review.  For your kiddos coming in who aren't so proficient, they could use these activities as great practice!  All 8 skills are basic, beginning of the year things kids know or need to know!

I hope you you can use some of these units! 
I know they will make my life easier in those first few weeks and I hope they will do the same for you!
