Welcome

About Me

I’m so glad you decided to stop by and take a peek into my world!  It’s awesome having a place of my own in this mega online world where I can share with others what is most dear to my heart.

This is me.

Lavinia Pop In My World

And this is my world.

POP

Not my COMPLETE world, but these people right here make up most of it! My husband, Sam, and I have four children: Alex, David, Camelia and  Filip. I am so blessed to have the support of this team of littlies! They are the reason I get up every morning and do what I do every day!

If you know me, you’ll know that I have an obsession with cute clip art and a passion for creating educational resources. I have been making resources for my kids for the last 5 years and about a year ago, I started selling some of them on Teachers Pay Teachers. I have met many wonderful people there who have encouraged me to blog about my learning journey with my kids, and so, with their encouragement and Sam’s support, I decided to give blogging a go! I never dreamed I would be where I am today and I am blessed to be able to do what I truly love and also be at home for my family.

About My Blog

I have decided to organise my blog into three main categories:

PRESCHOOL I am homeschooling my 3 ½ year old preschooler this year and I’d love to blog about our learning adventure and all-things-preschool that we do together. My little man’s name is Filip and he has the cheekiest little grin in the world! He loves to do “school work” and prefers a hands-on approach to learning.

AFTER SCHOOL I don’t fully home school. I have considered it, but, after much prayer and thought, my husband and I decided to enroll our school aged kids in a Christian school. I do believe it’s the best decision we have made for their learning and spiritual growth; they are surrounded by the most amazing Christian teachers and mentors! Certainly better than being at home with me!! Anyhow, in this section of my blog, I will be focusing on my school-aged kids and the activities, games and extra learning we do at home. My kids each have different learning styles and I love to create resources that I can use at home with them to extend on what they are learning in the classroom!

SUNDAY SCHOOL I also teach our combined preschool and prep (kindergarten) Sunday School class. I love kids, but more than that, I love that I can impact their world positively and help them build a relationship with Jesus. I try to make our classes as fun and creative as I know and I’d love to share ideas and photos about that every now and then too!

Well, that’s all from me for now! I hope you can find some ideas here that will be of use to you in your world!

Thank you for visiting and I’d love for you to leave a comment or two 🙂 Be sure to subscribe if you’d like to receive my blog post via e-mail.

    Just read your follower note on TPT. Wow, this is exciting! I just signed up for your e-mails. Your TPT store is one of my favorite stores so I’m excited to follow your blog as well. I have three boys – oldest just turned 6 and I’m home-schooling so this will be very helpful. Thank You!

    I am so happy you started a blog! I have been following you in TpT for a while and love your resources! I have an almost 3-year old and I plan to use your Letter of the Week resources with him. I look forward to reading more blog posts from you!

    I am an ESL teacher at Petree Elementary in Winston Salem, NC. It’s my first year and I work with about 60 students K-5. The main stress for me has been lesson planning for 6 different grade levels and creating activities that are not only engaging, but also developmentally appropriate. I am no where near learning all the content I am supposed to teach. I share this because I look forward to learning from you how to teach little ones. I previously taught High School Spanish and High School ESL. So now that I am at the K-5 level, you can imagine the learning curve and culture shock. Regardless of the challenges, I love where God has placed me and am thankful for the opportunity to grow and learn. Thanks for your help and please be encouraged to continue what you do 🙂

    • Lavinia Pop says:

      I really do hope you find some useful ideas and/or resources to use with your K-5 students… Going back a few years, I was in a similar position where I taught the children from our church to speak and read Romanian. There were only about 20 or so kids, but ranging from Grade 1 to Grade 6 and I had to make everything – for each level – from scratch! Challenging, but so worth it in the end!! Anyhow, thank you so much for stopping by and offering encouragement 🙂

    Hi Lavinia, you are one of my favorites at TpT, and Pinterest! You inspire me to do my best! I love to create for my first graders, and I strive to be the best person I can be! I don’t know much about blogs, and such, but I’m learning… I’ll get there some day! I have something else in common with you, the love of cute clip art! Talk to you soon, Mercedes Merrell.

  11. Mindy says:

    Nearly everything I find and purchase on TpT is from you. I guess I gravitate toward you cute clip art and fun activities. So glad I found your blog too. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
