Introducing the Alpha Pals!!

Last week I wrote a guest blog about Creating a Print Rich environment and posted a picture of a Die Cut alphabet I saw while touring my daughter's new school. You can read more about it here. Someone asked me if I sold it in my store & inspired the birth of my Alpha Pals. Its my first attempt at clip art & I'm having so much fun with them. I'd love some feedback. Hopefully I'll have the 2nd half of the alphabet next  Monday.

My Kinder Tribe




I am so excited to be part of The Kinder Tribe!



Hi, I'm Sasha. I a mother to 2 kids, a 4yr old girl & a 7 year old boy. I've been teaching for 15 years, 9 of those in K. I've worked in all kinds of schools: public, private, charter, native american, & Montessori. While each type of school has its own charm, I believe the public school system in my state has the most to offer its students and teachers. I am a proud graduate of the International Baccalaureate Magnet program in a public school. My high school curriculum was harder than my college one. I was better prepared for college than my brother who went to private school.

My principal calls me the Techy Kindergarten teacher. I love anything that has to do with technology. I love my iPhone, iPad & MacBook. My husband knows that my techy toys excite me more than jewelry. My Nikon DSLR camera is my favorite toy. I love taking pictures and editing them. I also love bright colors! the first things on my back to school shopping list is color sentence strips. I use them on bulletin boards, pocket charts & even cut them to make flash cards. My favorite book is the Kissing Hand. I love the message of love in it. Its also a great book for parents to read to their kids before they start kindergarten. It comforts parents too. I made this Kissing Hand Freebie. Click the picture to get it.
 Kissing Hand Freebie
My favorite kinder blogger is Deanna Jump. I have been following her long before I became a TPT seller. Now she is also my inspiration. I love her style & friendly attitude! I love to meet her in person one day.

Fun! Fun! Fun! Summertime Blog Hop




I'm so excited to be part of my first blog hop! Thank you Cheryl from Mrs. Wyatt's Wise Owl Teacher Creations for hosting it.


Summer is a time to reinforce academic skills as well as life skills.  

Every summer I enroll my kids in swimming lessons in my local YMCA. This summer my 4 year old is finally gaining confidence in the water  & my 7 year old is having a blast at 1/2 Day Aquatics Camp. Living in Florida, I believe swimming is an essential life skill all kids need.

I created a Freebie to help parents and teachers engage children in a discussion about water safety. You can create a scrapbook with your kids demonstrating the skills or have them draw pictures.

I am very proud of my little girl, just a week ago she did not have the confidence to swim on her own.



Other than swimming, I have spent the summer practicing Spanish with my kids. Although I am fluent in Spanish, my kids are not. When my daughter came home from school singing the Spanish alphabet, I knew I had to teach her more. She was the inspiration for all the bilingual sets in my store.

Here she is singing the Alphabet Song.



Here is a preview of my Bilingual Alphabet.

Follow the Frenzy


It has been an amazing 3 weeks at the TPT Seller Challenge. So many people have shared invaluable tips & advice with me. There is an amazing sense of community on TPT. In this journey there are three amazing women how I'd like to thank.

1.Vanessa from Longwing Montessorri , reached out to me in Week 1 when she realized we had friends in common. As it turns out, she is my sorority sister from the same chapter I graduated from a decade before her. We have become daily text buddies. She lives relatively close to me so we met at a local McDonald's with our laptops. We talked for 3 hrs while my children played. She is extremely sweet. has amazing ideas & has already taught me so much. She has become my go to person for TPT.

 I was very lucky to win Lattes and Lunchrooms & Design Infusion's Giveaway.

2. Kristen from Design Infusions is my Blog Fairy. I had just started my blog & was staying up late every night trying to figure out how to customize it when I got her email telling me I had won. I was over the moon! Below is the before picture. What an improvement! She did an amazing job & customized it just for me. I am so grateful!
3.  Kelly from Lattes and Lunchrooms is my TPT Fairy. I won a $25 Gift Certificate to her amazing store. What did I pick?

1st Day of School Book


Yesterday, I was home with a sick child. So while he slept & the little one watched tv (yes, I know bad mom) I finished this set for you. It includes: 
  • Custom cover pages for Kindergarten, VPK (for Florida teachers), Pre-K & 1st grade. My little one starts VPK this year so I had to include that as well. 
  • Both color & B/W pages
  • Space for kids to draw pictures
