Brr...Short Sleeves?

Yes, it is nine degrees here in Ohio. No, I don't know what made me think to wear short sleeves :)

Anyway, today's outfit:

Sweaterish Thing - Express
T-Shirt - Gap
Blue Khakis - Target
Boots - Franco Sarto from Macy's

Snowman Looking Up!

The kids loved this project yesterday! I just showed them my example that I made and gave them the needed materials. Since they are older kids, I didn't give them much instruction on how to create it because I wanted it to be their creation. I did start the project by asking why he doesn't have eyes. This helped them realize what makes him look like he's looking up. Enjoy!

Snowman Names

This is a cute project that I did yesterday with my school agers. They loved it & I was thrilled because I wasn't sure how they  would feel about this craft. Having some fourth graders in the mix throws it off sometimes. I hope your class enjoys this as much as mine did!  (The example is mine because I forgot to take pictures of theirs)

Penguin Numbers to 20 (Number Order, Counting, Etc)

Here is a set on penguin numbers to 20! These can be used for number order (my intended use -- we will glue to the front and back of a sentence strip), counting, etc. Enjoy! (obviously it's two pages and the download will take you to a two page file)

Mustard Cardigan & Blue Khakis

Happy Friday!!! I finally get to start subbing soon! Yay! Just one month until all the paperwork goes through and then I am on my way! Not that I don't love all my Phonics & Math kids at the center but, I really can't wait to get back in the public district with the older kids. Even if it's just subbing....I'm so excited! Oh, and as a side note, maybe you will be less upset with my lack of posts lately if I give you an inside look of my week this dog ate my Kindle, I fell down the stairs, AND I dropped my phone in the toilet while cleaning the bathroom. Hooray. Let's just say... I've never been more glad to see Friday!

Great TPT Finds

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a safe and fun New Year's Eve. Believe it or not, this is the first NYE that I have ever spent at a public bar/party/whatnot (aside from once when my family went to a hotel). This year we went to the casino to celebrate! Perfect place to celebrate NYE. It's pretty low-key and isn't a huge "partying/clubbing" atmosphere. Anyway, back to the good stuff... I decided to go on TPT tonight to see if I could find anything fun before I head back to work tomorrow. I work with small groups all day so I pretty much am able to change it up whenever and basically take it one day at a time if I so choose. If you are bored take a look at the freebies on there! This one in particular I really liked:

It's a big pack of story element posters. I also found a number pack, and shape posters which will be great for my office! Below is also a cute poster that I am going to put up about letter shapes. Maybe I am just out of the loop but I have never seen this before!
