The kids had to use only one hand to put the Santa hat on and then
take a spoon of mini marshmallows to a stocking.

NO more Writing!!!!!! and a new center

I am tired of writing. 
My kiddos have been writing for the last 2 days.
I feel sorry for them because I made them do it, but
I'm so happy it's all over.  For now.
First we wrote our story that is going to be published into a hardbound book.
I can't wait to get them back. 
It has been such a learning experience.
A wonderful publishing company called Studentreasures
sent us a book publishing kit for FREE.
We got to write our book and illustrate it.
Now I have to send it out tomorrow so it can be
Almost all my parents ordered at least one book, so our
class will get a copy for FREE.  The best part is that
even if no one had bought a book we still
would have gotten one free.
Inside cover

We then wrote to our pen pals. 
We have pen pals in Pennsylvania and
pen pals from a school right down the road from us.
The kiddos were excited to get all this done but it
took all day for 2 days to get finished. 
My aid and I said we don't want to write anything else until next year;)
It won't happen but I sure am tired of writing. 

Here is a new little sorting center I made last weekend.  You can get it
at my TpT or TN store for $2.
I will give this center away to the first 3 people
that comment and leave an e-mail address.

sound of y: long e and long i

This center game was created to go along with the Reading Street Series Unit 3 Week 1 story An Egg is An Egg.

This center contains the following:
*directions for 2 different ways to play this game (sorting center and rolling die center)
*2 sorting mats
*18 sounds of y: long e word cards
*18 sounds of y: long i word cards
*2 y: long e recording sheets (1 for recording the long e words, 1 for writing 6 long e sentences)
*2 y: long i recording sheets (1 for recording the long i words, 1 for writing 6 long i sentences)

Even though this center was made to go along with the reading street series it would still be a great center to learn or review sounds of y: long e and long i words.

December Currently

{Click the button to link up too!}
I'm linking up with Oh' Boy Fourth Grade.. for Farley's
December Currently. 
Where has the year gone?
 I mean seriously it's December already!
I love teaching this time of year.
The kiddos love learning this time of year too!

I'm listening to How to Train a Dragon.  My 17 yr old daughter is the
only one up right now and she is watching it. 
Love that show! 

I'm loving that it is Christmas time and that we have an elf on the shelf.
His name is Snowflake and he is a real character.
Today he was sitting on a picture in the hall with
a dry erase marker in his hand.
Mustaches were on all our pictures.
My little ones loved it:)

Thinking that I need to have a giveaway for
reaching 211 followers.  I reached 200 followers and
never had a chance to have a giveaway so I
think it is time. 

I want a new laptop.  The one I am using now is the one
my school has given the teachers.  I have so much clip art and products on
here that I'm scared I'm gong to lose it. 
If you have any suggestions on good or not good
computers I would love to know. 

I need to plan out my Christmas Around the World.
I plan on starting on Wednesday or Thursday of this week.
I have some great resources to use and I pretty much
know what I'm doing.  I just need to get it down on paper so
I'll actually follow it and have everything ready before hand.

My RAK is we are going to buy a food angel this year. 
Kroger has them and we plan on picking one up
next time we go to the grocery. 


* I would love to know what type of computer you use and if you like it.  I am going to be looking around tax time and would love any and all suggestions:)

Accelerated Reader Board and Christmas Coloring Book {sight word edition}

I had to share one of the amazing AR bulletin boards that my fellow teachers have made up at my school.  They are just too cute to keep to myself.  So here is the first one:
Our 4th grade teacher Mrs. Towels made up this adorable AR
board for her kiddos.
The kids get to choose a colored marshmallow for each AR point they read.  The marshmallows are kept in the snowman Ziploc baggies.  The cups have a cute snowman spoon in it too.  Once the kids reach their goal they will get a packet of hot chocolate to add to their cup.  Their AR party will be watching a movie and drinking their hot chocolate.  Here are a few close up pictures of her board.
Don't forget the HUGE SALES going on this weekend too!! 
I just finished my color by sight word Christmas coloring book. 
It uses Fry's first 100 words and would make a
great gift to give to your kiddos. 
It is available now at my TN store for 25% off. 
Click the picture to check it out at TN.

My TN store is offering 25% off along with the additional 10% that TN is offering.

My TpT store will be offering 25% off too on Monday and Tuesday!!
