Summer Accountability

June 4, 2018

Happy June! I know it’s a cliche but how many times have you heard this… I hate to admit this, but after this particular school year, I fully agree with this statement. So, that being said, I really don’t see myself working on a whole lot of school related things until closer to school starting. […]

Fall Fact and Opinions (Part 2)

November 16, 2015

Hello, friends! Well, in my last post I said I be back “tomorrow” to talk about my scope and sequence of my plans. Well, tomorrow turned into 2 whole weeks. Whoopsie. Man, life just got busy. I had conferences, Veterans Day, progress reports, and two new students that pretty much engulfed the last two weeks […]

Fall Fact and Opinions! (Part 1)

November 1, 2015

Happy Fall! I can’t believe it’s already November. I feel like I say that all the time. I don’t know about anyone else, but I feel like August-December are always so busy with one thing after another, that as soon as school starts in August, I’m virtually MIA until Winter Break. I’m really making an […]

Summer 2015

July 6, 2015

Hey Everyone! I am so happy to be able to blog again this summer. I thought I’d return with one of Tara’s famous Monday Made-It’s to share. In all honesty, I have done NOTHING to prep for next year yet. I have been taking the past few weeks to recouperate, read, relax, and spend time […]

Honoring Veterans Day

November 11, 2012

So, I have to be honest. In the past I haven’t taken much time to really discuss Veterans Day. I always asked students what they know about the holiday and why we celebrate it. I am ashamed to admit that I’d often get Veterans Day and Memorial Day confused. Well, not anymore. This past year […]

Week in Review and a new unit!

October 19, 2011

Hi Everyone! Can you believe Halloween is almost here? I feel like just yesterday was the first day of school. This year is flying by! In some ways, thank GOODNESS. But, in other ways, I wish it would slow down. Anyway, last week was pretty busy as most 4-day weeks are, so I thought I’d […]

Character Traits in a creative way

September 25, 2011

Hey, Everyone! Sooo, this week Treasures had my fourth graders practicing identifying Character Traits. Personally, it’s one of my favorite strategies because it is fairly easy for kids to understand but, more importantly, there are so many fun ways to practice. I don’t know about anyone else who is required to use Treasures in their classroom, […]

Got Vista Print?

August 11, 2011

Last year I was all about Vista Print. I still love it, but I think I overdosed on projects last year. I have so many left over items that I am going to wait for a while before I order some more. But, I have to say, the quality of the items, the sales, and […]

Birthday Balloons

August 7, 2011

Hi again! Sorry I’ve been MIA. I spent the majority of last week setting up my classroom. I’m hoping to finish this week and then I’ll have tons of pictures to share. Let’s just hope the laminator gets replenished at work so I can finish about 5 projects. Does anyone own their own personal laminator? […]

A much needed face-lift

July 3, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I feel as a teacher, we have an unexplainable need for organization. And by organization, I mean bins. I love bins. Colored, plastic, durable bins. I cannot go into The Dollar Store and NOT check out if they have any new designs or sizes to buy. In fact, I have […]
