Whatever the Weather

We will start the new year with our big WEATHER unit.  I LOVE teaching this unit!  I have lots of resources like science experiments, art projects and books to read, but I felt like I was missing a few components that I really needed.   So, I got busy and created a resource to fill in the gaps!  It's called

Oh My Goodness!  I haven't blogged in SO LONG!!!  I actually have a very good reason!  Over the Christmas holidays, I changed jobs!  I have moved to a school that is much closer to my house and even better than that, it's where I went to school myself!  I love it!  I love the faculty, staff, administration and my KIDS!  They are the best bunch!  BUT.  Changing schools in the middle of the year is quite a challenge!

Anywho... I'm having a sale on TPT!  Just wanted to let you know! ;)

Summer Summary

Month of June:  nothing but relaxing!  This is where I spent (almost) the entire month!  My skin is going to look like worn leather!  Oh yeah, I watched TV.  Too much TV.  Didn't even read a book.  I'm ashamed of myself.

I did do one real job these last few days of June.  I have made a set of close reads for our big FARM unit in September.  I have just uploaded it to TeachersPayTeachers.  If you are interested, click on the photo.  I started using close reads last year and they are wonderful!  I have never seen that much improvement in my kids' reading from one single change!  Really.

Month of July:
1.  Catch up on the blog book studies.
2.  Spend some time working in my classroom.  Painting shelves and organizing Word Work Center.
3.  Cook more.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

Snow Day Productivity

Three snow days in a row?  That's unheard of in Alabama!  I pretty much wasted the first two days, but today I woke up with a mission… make an "Arctic Animal Write the Room Activity" for my upcoming Arctic Animal unit.  It has been posted to TPT if you are interested.
