Monday Made It - Cut, Cut, Cut

It was a rainy weekend here in Georgia and I got MUCH more done than expected!  I'm linking with 4th Grade Frolics and ready to see what everyone's doing to get ready for the school year! 



 Cut...Cut...Cut! I spent hours cutting a big stack of lamination and now I have six new centers!  The cards on the left are part of the Kindergarten Smorgasboard's "File A Sound" activity where students "file" the card according to the initial sound.  The "Rhyming Rings" on the right are from fellow Georgia teacher, Karen Cox at PreKinders.


A good chunk of my cutting consisted of all these little circles!  They're part of the "Muffin Tin" alphabet learning games from Julie Lee at Mrs. Lee's Kindergarten.  My class absolutely LOVES any game using a muffin tin so I know these will be an instant hit!

 
It does take some time to cut the circles but I did the whole set while watching Braves baseball this weekend. Somehow they managed to get through three games with only one rain delay.
Oh, see my little scissors?   These Cutter Bee scissors are lightweight and just pointy enough for nice corners & cutting tiny details.  Do you have a pair of Cutter Bees?  I couldn't live without mine!
 
 
Yum...Yum...Yum! I made a Peach & Blueberry Cobbler over the weekend!  So easy & so delicious! 

 
 
The crust is a simple mixture of self-rising flour, sugar, and milk.  You it mix together and then pour over a stick of melted butter.  The "secret" to this cobbler is DON'T STIR after you pour!
 
 
Fresh sliced Georgia peaches and plump blueberries... 
 
 
 stirred with sugar & lemon juice then brought to a boil...


 and poured over the cobber mixture...DON'T STIR!
 
 
Yummy goodness warm from the oven just waiting for a scoop of vanilla ice cream! 
 
Thanks for visiting with me and have a GREAT week!
I'll be posting Part THREE of my I Teach K summary tomorrow!

  1. I have been cutting so much lamination too! I wish I could click my heels three times and have it done.

  2. The cobbler looks amazing! Peaches and blueberries together- yum. I haven't laminated yet, but I'm sure it will be hours of fun :) I'll have to get started on the next rainy day.

  4. I love cobbler, and blueberry and peach are a favorite combo.... they sound better than laminating, which I just haven't thought about yet :)
