Classroom Sneak Peeks Page!

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
Hello Everyone!
 
It's been a while hasn't it?? Wow I've neglected this little blog and all of yall! I'm trying to get better, but I feel as if I always leave something out while I try to catch up with the rest. Yall know how I feel right??
 
Anyway I've had many people email me and ask me about room setups.... How do I do this or that? What should this look like? Pictures, pictures, and more pictures. Believe me I have no problem answering any questions, but like we all know you only learn from the best and I don't feel like I'm the best lol.
 
So what I have done is opened a linky for every teacher blogger to join...
The best part? You probably already have a post to link up! No extra work. (Great plan right??)
 
Here's what it's all about.... YOUR CLASSROOM!
Anything that gives us a sneak peek into your home away from home. This way it's a one stop shop for teachers to browse around other amazing classrooms. Feel free to link up numerous blog posts and browse other posts!
 
Spread the word :) Don't forget your favorite teacher bloggers! Let them know about linking up!
 
LINK UP HERE
 
Linking will end Oct 31 when the page is revealed, so be sure to link up and spread the word quickly!!

I'm melting... I'm melting...

Wednesday, September 11, 2013
The day is finally over! I woke up exhausted and then entered an oven to teach in. Needless to say, today was not a shining star type of day.

I digress.

There may have been a reason that I was so tired....
I maaaaaaaay have been up a little late last night creating a new blog design :/

and here it is... well for the most part. All of you that have been following me for a while know that I'm Type A and need everything to be precise, so I can't make any promises.

I hope the new format is user friendly, as well as esthetically pleasing. I loved the modern look of the old setup, but it left much to be desired. Contact buttons were hard to find and there was no pin it button on each pic (big pet peeve) So feel free to pin away :)

Back to School Day 2: Ball Chairs, Erasable Pens, and a Better Outlook.

Wednesday, September 4, 2013
Sooooo after a long pep talk, a couple snooze alarms, and a SCALDING hot shower, I headed to work bright and early again to prepare for day two. I don't know about you, but I always forget how tough the first few days really are! My adorable littles arrived right on time this morning and let me tell you they were perfect!!! Little did I know the amazing artists I had in my classroom! Details, details, details. I am already proud. I can't wait to see what the year brings.

Back to School: Day 1

Tuesday, September 3, 2013
Boy am I beat!!! Actually I came home and fell asleep for about 3 hours... Ooooopsies! It definitely was a draining day, but what first day isn't?? My cutie patooties looked absolutely adorable as they walked in the door as big first graders and they are as excited for this year as their teacher is.

Butterfly Life Cycle

Wednesday, April 3, 2013
May I just start off by saying...
AHHHHHHHH what a wonderful feeling spring break brings a teacher! Just the thought of those two words makes you feel like you've received a spa day on a beach with a drink in your hand....
okay okay maybe we aren't that lucky. I mean for goodness sakes we are teachers, not brain surgeons right?!

Anywhooooooo, I'm enjoying my spring break and I hope anyone else that is off is too!

Well if you're a teacher you know that you can NEVER shut teacher mode off, so while I was on the airplane I created this little ditty! 

It contains 51 pages of common core goodness, wrapped in a chrysalis of love :) 

I hope that you will click the pin to share :)

In this Butterfly Life Cycle Unit you will be supplied with:

- 7 Vocabulary Cards 
which I use for my anchor charts, word wall, bulletin boards, pocket charts, and on a ring to review daily

a fun way to bring learning to recess or free choice times

another fun way to bring the theme into recess or free time
- KWL chart and brainstorming clouds
an easy and fun way to collect data on prior knowledge, wanted knowledge, and gained knowledge (individual and group based sheets)

Blogging 101: The Basics

Sunday, March 24, 2013
In honor of my 1 year blogaversary (March 19th) I have decided to go a different route than other bloggers. I will not be having a giveaway, freebies, or sales, but I will be dishing out a weeks worth of blogging tips and tricks to get other newbies started! I thought that this would be more beneficial and seemed the right thing to do in celebration of starting my blog one year ago!

I'm lucky because...

Thursday, March 7, 2013
Today was kind of a crazy day. We started off by joining the school wide math testing with a standards assessment. After racking our brains I realized the perfect therapy would be a craft, but which one?

Being that St. Patty's Day is right around the corner and we are trying to push character development in this long month we voted for the 'I am lucky because...' Headbands! What's better than expressing why you're lucky right on your forehead?!

The kids loved these!!! And did I mention we were silent for at least 5 minutes ;)

WOW! I feel like a 1,034,523,675 pound weight has been lifted off of my shoulders! I've been working day and night on the cutest little dity that you ever did see! I don't know about you, but my little ones are dying to write! They want to tell me EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING and now that they can write that's just what I make them do! As you heard on Friday in my 5forfriday# We went on a field trip on Monday that dummy me ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY FORGOT ABOUT. Yep you read that right! I FORGOT about a field trip! I thought it was going to be a nightmare, but it all worked out and it was probably the best yet! We went to the zoo...
