Teacher Week 2015

Hey friends! Lord have's been a while! I am so sorry. I really, really want to get better about blogging and have it become a part of my daily weekly routine. But, I just can't manage to fit it all in. A lot has happened since I've blogged last, but I'm going to save ALL of that for later! :) For years, I have loved linking up with Blog Hoppin' during Teacher Week and it's that time again! So excited!! Here is what we have planned...
This year, we are making it easier to participate. We've chosen fun topics for each day and given you different ways to connect with us. Here is what you can do...

1. Classroom Blog: Write a blog post and link up at Blog Hoppin,'

2. Instagram: Don't have time to write a blog post? Just share a picture on instagram and tag Blog Hoppin'. Make sure you use the hashtag #teacherweek15.

3. Periscope: Are you on it? Such an easy way to share pics of your classroom or some fun facts about yourself! Let your followers know that you'll be participating so we can watch. 

4. Facebook: Maybe you don't have a blog, but have some great things to share! Make sure you head over to Blog Hoppin's facebook page, on the day you share, and leave a comment.

There you have it! Four easy ways to participate. Connect with us, celebrate with us, and let us get to know you. We are super anxious for Teacher Week and I'm looking forward to learning more about you all. Happy Teaching!

St. Patrick's Day!!

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a restful weekend. Mine was filled with errands, packing, moving, engagement photos, and so on. No rest for the weary...and let's not even talk about the time change. I'm 12 kinds of behind on sleep! :( I am desperately trying to stay ahead of the game and be a week to 2 weeks planned out. For some of you, this may be a part of your weekly routine....but for me - this NEVER happens. I am living in the moment and finishing my plans for the week, usually on Sunday night!! Well, next week we are gearing up for St. Patrick's Day! And while I'm not ready yet, Gertie is...
She cracks me up. Such a diva!
We are working on our Leprechaun Traps to catch the sneaky leprechaun that's been visiting our classroom and leaving footprints. This family project can be found in this unit...
We will also be graphing Lucky Charms, learning about Roy G. Biv, and making Leprechaun Punch. My students LOVE leprechaun punch. Afterwards, we sequence our steps and write about it. 
This great idea is from DeAnna Jump's St. Patrick's Day unit. You can find that {here}. Several of you have been asking me about this photo...
And WHERE you can find the patterns. While I would LOVE to take credit for this, I stole this brilliant idea (and patterns) from April at Chalk Talk who got the idea from Kim Jordano. She so kindly posted the patterns on her blog and you can grab them {here}. I hope that helps everyone!!

Winner winner, Chicken dinner...a Valentine Day recap!

Hey ya'll. I'm back with the winners to our fabulous "Love is in the Air" giveaway. As you all know, I teamed up with some fabulous bloggers to give away a 16GB iPad air! Yahoo! All of the bloggers, who participated, joined in by giving away some type of techie prize. There was much up for grabs! 
Congratulations to Cori Blubaugh who won the iPad!!!!! I'm so excited for her - - yet, jealous! ha On my blog, I was giving away a $25 iTunes gift card. The lucky winner of that giveaway is.....
Thanks to everyone who entered! I didn't have too many entries...because I realized (a few days into the giveaway) that my rafflecopter was messed up. Sorry about that. I set up my blog post in a hurry and set the date of the giveaway wrong. Oops! Speaking of "Love in the Air," there was lots of it at my school. Makes me happy :) 
Will you BEE my Valentine? Here's a glimpse of my classroom door.
We had lots of fun Literacy & Math work stations going on. You can find these (and more) in my Valentine unit on TpT.
We had a fun Ice Cream Social in lieu of a Valentine Party. Students had to have friends sign off on each of their items before they could collect their ice cream supplies. For example: if they wanted sprinkles, they had to find a friend with a pet dog. This great handout can be picked up {here}. 
Here are the Valentine gifts I gave my students and teacher friends! :) Students each received a pack of oreos and a valentine themed straw (picked up at Target) with a tag that said, "Valentine...we go together like milk & cookies!" I also gave out a box of brownies to my friends with a rubber spatula. Their tag read, "Shooting for brownie points!" They went over well! Everyone loved them. The tags were picked up online for free and I just printed them on cardstock and attached with ribbon. I hope everyone felt the love on Valentine's Day. Thanks for entering our "Love is in the Air" giveaway. Hugs!
