I got a new toy yesterday, a Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine, and I have absolutely no idea how to make it do all the things my mind can imagine! I have been dying to decorate the walls in our house with some vinyl lettering.  I think it’s cool, but man is it expensive.  So […]

The boys and I decided to stop at Barnes & Noble this morning to see what we could find. As soon as we walked in, we found Mickey Mouse and Dora books with 12 little figures attached to them.  The boys had to have them. Then we headed to the children’s section to read some […]

Language Experience Stories are a teaching strategy that I have used across all of my careers…teacher of the Deaf/HH, Primary teacher, teacher coach and mom to preschoolers. They allow a group to collectively create a story, involve listening, speaking, writing and reading skills all at the same time and develop language, grammar and vocabulary.  But […]

I’ve had a sneaking suspicion since I started this blog that people don’t really understand what I’m trying to do with it.  I haven’t made my thoughts about the blog absolutely clear and therefore people have assumed the worst….that I’m just using this as another platform to sell games. Of course, my SimplyFun business is […]

When I taught First Grade I loved to do Author Studies with the kids. It really helps the students to make text to text connections (In this book the character/author does this, but in this other book the character/author does that.) and it also helps with learning the craft of writing. One of my favorite […]

Most people play by the rules of games…and I must admit that SimplyFun makes it easy to do this by giving you quick rules so that you can get started right away and then figure out the more intricate rules as you go along. But, when you have boys ages 2 and 4, the rules […]

This past weekend I did an event in Waco, about an hour and 15 minutes north of here. I drove back and forth Friday, Saturday and Sunday…it was a very long weekend, but I thought the event would be worth it to move into a different market. The weekend started with me trekking up there […]

So if you don’t know about Pinterest, you must run over there right now! It’s a way to bookmark and organize websites that you find, without cluttering up your bookmarks on your computer. They are organized by Board (whatever category you want) and the best part is that you can see other people’s boards! There […]

While I was looking at Amazon.com today to see what was new in the world of books, I came across this little book. The Author, Evan Moss, is a 7 year old little boy who suffers from seizures. He has them in his sleep and must be constantly monitored so he sleeps in bed with […]
