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!

I made up for my super slow post this month by giving you two February choices!


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)

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!

YAY Target!! Haha.

Great TPT Finds

Wednesday, January 1, 2014 No comments
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!
