Lesson Plans!!

Can you believe that we are starting the last week of February? We are excited but...a tad stressed at the same time! Spring is on it's way...we just know it!:)
We finished this week focusing on Abraham Lincoln. We had a lot of fun with this great little pack from 
A Cupcake for a Teacher. We especially love the dark eye brows!!
Look how cute these turned out!!

This week we also had Kindness Week at our school. Each day the kids had a fun dress up day and we focused on being extra kind! Friday was dress like a super hero! We had a lot of different heroes, that ranged from Spider-man to doctors. However...this may be my favorite!! She was a great sport and her kids loved that she dressed up!! GO SUPERWOMEN!!:)

Superwomen was needing a little coffee early in the morning!!!

When we were changing out centers for this week, we decided to pull out some oldies but goodies! The kids love having things changed up and things a little different to work with. Here are a few of our favorites! We will be working on different activities to help with sight words, as well as tapping and blending. All of these products can be found at Scholastic, Lakeshore or School Specialty.

We are linking up with our friend DeeDee for a Peak At Our Week!!

Holy Cow...this Momma is tired!! It has been birthday party weekend! My sweet little chick turned 7 on Valentine's Day!! So that means...days and days of celebrating!! Last night, we had 7...yes 7...6 and 7 year olds stay the night!! They played, ate, sang and gave me a complete lesson on One Direction! How can they possibly know every word to every song???:) I see a nap in my future and some serious house cleaning!!:) 

I wanted to share a GREAT blog post from Erica Bohrer's at Erica's Ed-Ventures. She has done an amazing job of explaining how to get started on Teachers Pay Teachers!! She has some very informative tutorials that we are  excited to try! We have been doing this for a year and we still have so much to learn!! Go check it is worth your time!:)

We Have a Winner and We Gave It A Whirl!!

Well... if you are like us...we LOVED looking at all the Bright Ideas going around. What a wonderful way to take a peak into other classrooms and come out with some "Bright Ideas." The one that really caught our attention was from Teacher to the Core. So we have all these wonderful ideas and products from some amazing teachers but really the question is...How do you store everything and keep it organized??? So...when we came across this little idea...problem solved!! Page protectors are the simple! Not only are they cheap, but they fit perfectly into a file cabinet! I have mine divided by months and then into math and literacy. Everything we need and cut out fits right into the protector...brilliant really!! All the masters for the recording sheets are right there and we are ready to roll the next time we need them!! Thanks so much for the "bright idea":)
We are linking up with Mrs. Rios Teaches for a Gave it a WHIRL Wednesday!! Hop on over to find more wonderful ideas!!

Here is a peak into a couple files...

And...we have a winner!!

Happy Wednesday friends...we are halfway through this week!!

Currently, The 100th Day and Lesson Plans!!!

Happy Sunday Friends...I am sure most of you are excited about Super Bowl Sunday...personally...not so much! I guess I will hang out for the food and maybe a few commercials! Seriously...I don't even understand football! But... the Super Bowl is a great reason to have a sale! So maybe in between the snacks and commercials you can shop a little!:) Thanks to Kristen at Creative Clips for the adorable sale image!

WooHoo...we may be late to the party but...we are linky up with Farley for our very first Currently!! We love reading them so we thought...why not!

Listening... one of my all time favorite shows is Parenthood!! Not sure what I did before Netflix!
Loving...that we are out for snow tomorrow kids have to go!! Can you to myself! Whatever will I do??
Thinking...I could get used to the extra day off! I am sure I won't have the same feeling when I am making it up in May!
Wanting...summer! We have booked our vacation to Destin Florida. A whole week with my whole family!! It is going to be GREAT!
Wanting...someone to iron! I spend hours ironing each week! I can't stand the thought of putting clothes away not ironed! I know, I know...a little OCD!!
2 truths and a Fib... I do love Dave Ramsey. We have been faithful to this way of thinking for about 3 years...we don't have credit cards and always use cash! Cash is the best! We even went and saw him live...really it was a fast 8 hours!
I LOVE Keith Urban...if you know anything about me it is that maybe I am a little over the top for him! My husband supports my crazy behavior...what a great guy! I have been to 13 concerts and have no plans of stopping any time soon!!
 I mean can you not love this guy!

And...the fib! No.. I have not sang the National Anthem anywhere...let alone at MLB game! Have mercy... I would be kicked out for sure!! However...I do love going to a ballgame! It is a family favorite during the summer!

This week we celebrated the 100th day of school! How is it that this year is going so fast??? Seriously...we are over halfway done! We are starting to feel the stress already! We have so much fun all day long. We sang songs counting to 100, stopped and danced for 100 seconds, had a 100 day snack, read lots of books, and used clues to guess what each one of our friends brought in 100 of..but our favorite part was discussing what we might look like when we are 100! Adorable!
We created this little pack to help us out!!

Here is a peek at our week...we will have to do a little adjusting since we have a snow day on Monday!
We are linking up with DeeDee again this week!!
