I thought I should drop by and tell you that I'm still alive and teaching my heart out. I snapped a few pictures so that I could even prove it to you!
This my "book basket" time. Students are allowed to read any big book that we have read in class together. This class more than any other, are obsessed with my pointers. I think I need to buy those creepy skeleton finger pointers that I saw at the teacher store last week!
This is my amazing assistant running her small group. She's using my CVC Activities and Pictures Cards and having the group stretch out the sounds in each word. Of course I jumped up to snap these pictures so my small group isn't shown...sigh.
Our school purchased the learning software from Lakeshore and this is a student working hard at beginning sounds.
Since clearly this isn't going to be a blog post with a purpose, I will share with you a few other random happenings in my little corner of the world...
* I am toying with the idea of moving my word wall....I just don't love it this year. Like I need another small project added to my ever growing To-Do list ;)
*I have fallen in love with Pete the Cat. If you haven't met him yet you really should arrange a meeting. I have stopped so many tears of frustration this year by reminding my students that Pete wouldn't cry. "Goodness no!"
*No matter how much orange juice I drink or how many vitamins I take, I seem to have a permanent stuffy head...suggestions are welcome.
*My Erin Condren binder is keeping me organized and I love the fun quotes and colors throughout the pages. It keeps me happy.
*My favorite item in my classroom right now is my "lean green pencil machine" - You can read more about that HERE
*If you would like to ask me any questions or leave me any comments, I have installed a gadget so that I can respond to your comments right in my blog post, right after your comment posts. I would love to give this a try so leave some love.
