Crysanthemum and Freebie

Hi everyone, Liv here!

I hope your summers are going well!  I'm in Florida, which is currently the "not so sunny" sunshine state!  Being stuck inside is not all bad though, it has given me time to make a few new things for my class next year. 

One thing I made was a Crysanthemum mini-unit ($3.55).  Although after I had the idea for the unit I realized I couldn't find any clipart that worked. I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to try and make one myself.  I used the bamboo tablet I recieved for my birthday and much to my surprise, my little mouse ended up being sort of cute!  :-)   Super exciting!

Another piece of exciting news is that my TPT now has 100 followers!  To celebrate I turned one of my priced items into a freebie.  The item is a SmartBoard Word Sort/Pocket Chart activity.  It has 32 different sounds to practice.  If you have a SmartBoard or know someone who does, feel free to go download it!!!  (And maybe rate the item or follow my store if you like it?! You're the best!)


  1. I am super impressed . . . my art abilities are horrid! I always start out the year with Chrysanthemum as it is the perfect back to school tale. You gotta hit believing in yourself and being different starting on day one :) I am on my way to check out your mini-unit. Glad I found you today :)
