Five for Friday.. and the winner is...


Three weeks done already?! I am not sure where these last three weeks went, but we are finally starting to get our routine together! We are loving Go Noodle and my kids beg to do multiple brain breaks in a day!

And the winner is… Beth, I will be in contact soon to get your address. Congrats!


We love playing Sight Word Jenga! I put the pre-primer through second grade sight words on the Jenga blocks using my label maker. This makes it really easy to diffierentiate because I can just give each student the color of the sight word list they need to work on, and that is the colored word they need to read me on their Jenga block they pull out. This has also really helped us work together as a team! The only thing we are still working on, is not screaming when the tower falls over :). 




We love Go Noodle! Today our guy grew four arms and everybody thought it was the coolest thing! I love having all of the brain breaks at the tip of my fingers, and not having to go through all of the hops to sign into Youtube!



We started our new math program this week, I am not sure how I am feeling about it, but the students sure had fun playing teacher. We were working on word problems, so I let them take turns drawing and explaining the addition word problems on the board. 


Week 1 of Interactive Reading Journals was a huge success! They worked even better then I thought they would. The kids asked all week long when they could add more to their notebooks. I think it will be really cool when the whole notebook is full and they can look back at all of the hard work they have done. 

That is all for now, have a great weekend!




Currently September!

Wow, it is already September?! That is really hard to believe, because this summer just flew by. However, I am linking up with Farley for Currently Me, September Edition! Also, don't forget about my $20.00 dollar target gift card giveaway,  in my previous post!


Listening: I literally just rolled out of bed and turned the tv on, so I am listening to Good Morning America. It is nice to be able to watch these types of shows when we are not in school!

Loving: I am loving having an extra day to get everything done! We have only been back a week, but I really am in need of a day off!

Thinking: About everything I need to do today! Lesson plans, cutting and laminating, and of course working out! IT will all get done though!

Wanting: I think I need to buy some new fonts on TPT. I am really loving some of the fonts I have seen lately and I may just be a little jealous. :)

Needing: I really do not need anything! I did my grocery shopping already for the week, so I  am good to go!

3 Trips: I really would love to just go anywhere, but Paris, California, and the Bahamas are defiently places I would like to see some day!
