Back to School surprises!

Yes, tomorrow is the first day of school!!  It's so much fun now that my daughter is school-aged, because we both start school together--she's in first grade this year and I'm teaching kindergarten.

It's About That Time Again!

It's about that time again....
If you've been following me on Instagram, you know that I'm starting to get everything ready for back to school.  A fresh coat of paint. Breaking out the sewing machine. Dusting off the personal laminator.  These are just a few of the ways we get prepared for the new year.

Modern Teacher Planner GIVEAWAY!

Look what was at my doorstep yesterday!
If you've ever taken a look at April's planners...then you know how excited I was!!

It's Summer!

Last week was my first full week of summer-- the time when SCHOOL bags become POOL bags!!

Of course, my kiddos and I kicked it off in a great way--swimming lessons, picnic lunches, reading books in our pajamas (at ANY time of the day!).... you get the idea!!

VA is for BOOK Lovers Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be joining my fellow Virginia bloggers for a blog hop that embraces our love of BOOKS! We are each sharing a book AND a resource that we love to use in our classroom for this very special hop. Not only that, but you'll find a book giveaway on each page of the hop, with a super huge giveaway at the end... to win the whole library (ALL 19 books)!!

Hi there!

I'm Karen Stamp, yes, stamp.... like postage (hence the blog theme!).  :)  

This summer, I celebrated 13 fabulous years of marriage with this handsome guy...
We've been laughing every day since--I mean who else would let me choose personalized kazoos for our wedding send-off!?  THIS guy, and that's just one of the reasons why I love him!

These two are my sweeties!  I feel so blessed to be their Mommy!!

This year will mark my 16th year of teaching, and my 12th in Kindergarten!  I feel so fortunate that I get to introduce my students to all the excitement of learning in school.  I have a passion for creating materials that make learning FUN and offer many resources in my TpT shop. Seriously, how lucky am I to spend each day doing what I love!?

So, that's just a little peek into the person behind this blog!  I enjoy having the opportunity to share some of our classroom happenings on instagramfacebook, and twitter too.  I hope you'll introduce yourself in the comments below... thank you so much for stopping by!!
