Welcome to my blog! This is my very first, of what will hopefully be many posts. Blogging has been something that I have wanted to get into for a while now, and I've finally decided to give it a go. I've always came up with excuses not to start it up... I'm too busy with the kids.... How can I teach and stay dedicated to blogging... My husband will feel ignored if I'm in front of the computer all the time. But I've decided since teaching is something that I'm really passionate about, I should try it out and make connections with other teachers out there.  I've even gone so far as to make a twitter account... To be honest I never thought that I would see the day.  I was so anti twitter for the longest time.

So a little bit about me.  I'm a mother of two wonderful boys.  I just had my second so a few weeks ago, so I'm on mat leave.  I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 6 years, and we've been together for 12. I love to cook, draw and decorate my home. Besides the dollar store for teacher finds, home sense is my favourite!

This would technically be my 8th year of teaching.  I graduated from Brock in 2006 from the CHYS / BA / BeD program. I've taught grade 2/3, kindergarten, literacy coach. For the last few years I've been at the same school and have bounced between grade 3 and a 3/4. When I return to work I will be in the split again.

I have a teachers pay teachers store that you should check out. Search for my name "the Raudy teacher."  It has lots of grade 3 and 4 resources, including items for the new social studies curriculum. I will keep you up to date on my current products on this blog.  Currently, I have many projects on the go.  I'm working on my grade 3 and 4 learning goal packages, a grade 3/4 math inquiry unit, and a grade 4 inquiry unit that combines science and social studies expectations. Keep checking back, I'm hoping to have them all up shortly.

I'm looking forward to this new adventure. Please follow my blog, tpt store, twitter and Pinterest pages. I'd love to hear your thoughts and comments! Bye for now!
