Peek at my Week-TROLLS!

First, I would love to thank the FABULOUS teachers and staff at Truman Elementary for hosting the conference on Friday!  AND thank you to everyone else who braved the VERY cold weather to join us!  Despite my wardrobe malfunction, it was a terrific day talking about all things math and assessments.  

How awesome is this chalkboard?  I want IT!

Before I left to go to Farmington on Thursday, THIS came in the mail.  




My class FREAKED out!  They were so excited to have a kid sized version of my apron.  I also got Fairy Tale cards that will come in handy this week while we talk about the Three Billy Goats stories.


This week we will be reading the Three Billy Goats Fluff and many versions of the Three Billy Goats Gruff.  These aprons all come from the very sweet and talent Sandy Welch over at Kinder-Gardening.

Even my little tough guy gave the apron a pat on the way out and said, "I can't wait until we can do this next week!"  Melt!
We will be using these books this week!
You can watch a video of the book as well! I do not suggest you substitute a video for a book.  Holding the book and zooming in on the pages is an important part of reading.  The video will just offer a fun supplemental activity.


You can also watch some videos at Super WHY . 
It is a bit long, but the story starts around the 7 minute mark.

And completing the activities in these units.
 and
I can't wait to have my class build bridges!  So fun!




I also finished these two units yesterday.  They are discounted until the end of today (since I did not get them done by the sale... sigh.)

Sight Word Revisions! and a Sale!

Busy! Busy! Time!

In my classroom, we are really working on sight words!

So I have been updating units and organizing my STUFF!
This one is a new one.  I have one of my boys in my intervention group that LIVES for monster trucks, so when I asked him why type of game he wanted to play, he {naturally} said, "SOMEFING WIF TWUCKS!"   Done!

These are updates of existing files... so if you already own them... you can get the updates for FREE!
{just go to "My Purchases"}





I love making items editable whenever possible.  To see all of my sight word units that are editable, click on the image below.





AND... There is a SALE!!!  
It starts tomorrow and all of my products will be on sale on 2-25 and 2-26!

Peek at my Week: It's all about the teeth... the teeth...

Last week ended up being about a day's worth of instruction... Whomp! Whomp!

3 snow days and 1 early release day sort of made forward motion tough!

So this week, we will have a little "do-over."

However... we are moving on to Dental Health in our content area and reading!

 I love Throw Your Tooth on the Roof.  It shares tooth traditions from Around the World.  I think I have had my book for about 12 years.  In my opinion, there is no substitute for a book.  We go back and look at pages again and again.  Conversations bubble up and true interaction with a text takes place... but sometimes a video is pretty cool too!



Here are few other tooth videos.
This story will give you an opportunity to talk about compassion in your classroom.

And...  well... just because!


Last year we used this unit from Katie Mense and it was perfect!

We are focused with our focus wall.

 Our poem is ready... this is a favorite!
And we will be reading this book closely!  
This is part of our Growing Readers: February Unit.

On Friday, I will be in Farmington!  I look forward to seeing many of you!
There is still time to register!
Click on this flyer to learn more and to register!

Thank you to the ladies in Farmington for asking me back AND for creating this flyer!

One final thought!
 I am a bit behind because The Perfect Son asked if I wanted to hang out yesterday.  Um... YES!  We went to the city and had a little phone war while we were stopped at an impossibly long stop light!

 



Have a great week!
