It's About Time!

Thank you for all your great ideas on how to make test prep more interesting!  That is another one of my favorite things about blogging.  I can post a dilemma and you guys are right there with so many different solutions!  I am very grateful.

I took a big step this weekend.  I told my family members about my blog and my TpT store.  Up until this point, the only people who knew about it were my husband and a few close co-workers.  I didn't want to say anything because I wasn't sure how they would react.  I come from a family of education professionals.  Like, principals, hs teachers, elementary teachers, school nurses, etc. - my family has 'em all!  I finally told my mom, and boy was she impressed!  She was so excited she showed my dad and both of my grandmothers right away! (if any of you are reading - hi!)

Which leads me to my next point.  My grandmother just retired from being a second grade teacher (like me!) and she is already giving me new ideas to create.  Her first suggestion? Telling time!  Such a challenge in 2nd grade!  I got to it right away with the help of graphics from The 3am Teacher.

And wa-la!

I am going to be using all the games as an end of the year review.  It's fun and educational!
Check it out!



  1. What a great looking review for time! Only my husband and a few other teacher friends know about my blog too. Many of my coworkers know I sell on TpT but not the blog aspect.
    How cool that your grandma is giving you ideas! What a fun bond you must have!

  2. I love your new time unit!! We are learning time next year because of Common Core, so I'm pinning this for the future!

  3. How awesome to be able to get advice and tips from your Grandmother!! I have two sisters that are educators, but other than that no one in my family is in education. Love the time unit! It is a hard concept to teach.

  4. It's tough to show people your blog, but I'm so glad they liked it! :)

  5. How awesome to get advice from your Grandma!! I too had a hard time showing my blog to my family members. My husband was so proud of it, that he was the first one to show our family members. Only a few of my colleagues know...

    Have a fabulous summer! Your new time unit looks fabulous!
