Today we are throwing  a big, humongous bash to celebrate YOU!
Last year we blogged about our favorite non-school related things, this year we have decided that we will share with you our favorite school things! So here we go:

Slide1
My favorite app right now is this great reading program called Speakaboos.
I have it downloaded to all my Ipads for my first graders to use.
They love it!
There are over 150 different stories for them to choose from.
Most stories have 3 reading options:  Read to me, Read and play, Read it myself  this makes it so easy for my students to read or listen to great engaging stories without me having to be right there the whole time.




Slide2
I want to share how I organize my math centers.
I have 10 math centers in this colorful rolling cart.

There is one center in each numbered draw. 
 I make sure that everything the students need to complete that center is in the draw.
This draw has an ordinal matching center game, recording sheets, pencils and crayons.
Students just take the draw and get to work.
 On top of the cart I have a green basket I got from the dollar store.
Students know that they turn in their papers here.
Each day I can collect all the center work and check to make sure they are understanding and completing the centers.
All this just helps me stay on top of my math centers and lets the kids be more independent learners.

Slide3
Every Christmas I make homemade Peanut Brittle.  
It's really not very hard to make and my family and friends love it.
The only hard part is making sure you watch it and don't walk away.
Trust me I've burnt it enough time to learn my lesson.
Here is my recipe.



Once again we want to treat you all to our favorite things!!! Check out these great prizes!
