Turkey Fun

We did these ADORABLE turkeys from Doodlebugs teaching.Oh. Did I mention it is a freebie???

I swear...they are PRECIOUS! I followed her advice and had a bag for each student with all of their pieces. They cut them out and put them back in their bag. Then they assembled. Do you die from cuteness?

This is my sweet baby's turkey!

Look at that hat! I love it!

Hee. Hee. No neck! I love.

And. Well. You know this kid! :) Makes me smile!

We also completed our large turkey in the hallway. You can read more about that here and get the note to send home. (Maybe for next year!)


What have y'all been up to lately?

Snow Day #1

Yes. We had a snow day. In November. We got 5 inches actually...which is a lot for us. Luckily it was very powdery and the sun was out today so we are going back tomorrow! (Even though it is going to be below 10 degrees in the morning.) I know for some of you up North that is nothing. It's pretty cold for us. In November.
I love a good snow day (preferably in December, January or February) and I got a lot accomplished today. I got my Christmas tree up (don't hate) and played Christmas music all day. That definitely got me in the mood to start planning Christmas in the classroom!
For now though, we are all about the turkey in the classroom! We've been gobbling up some good Thanksgiving Fun.

(And yes...I correct that mistake below)


 Indian Vests for our Thanksgiving Vest


Listening Center - Run, Turkey, Run!

And we did the cutest stinkin' turkey's ever. I'll have to grab pictures tomorrow but I swear...I love 'em!

Need a quick reader to do with your kiddos this week? Grab this freebie in my store!

November Currently

Hello. Lordy. Where did the month go? I just cannot seem to get a good blogging schedule going! I don't know about y'all about but last week just about killed me! Red Ribbon Week and Halloween...WHEW! That makes for 1 LONG week! We survived and had a blast. I'm ready for a more calming (and shorter) week! I'm linking up with Farley today.


Listening - To my little on watch DocMcStuffins

Loving - The time change. I know I'm weird but I LOVE when we fall back. I love that we gain another hour in the day and I am so excited that it won't be pitch black when we leave for school now. I know it gets dark earlier (but I secretly enjoy that). I won't feel as bad in my pj's at 5:30!

Thinking - I have GOT to finish my November Write the Room today. #1 because we need it in class and #2 I may or may not have not finished my October unit until October 26. Gotta get ahead.

Wanting - I've been on the look for a good pair of black boots that I really like...within my budget. I've not found them but I'm going on a shopping trip next weekend for my birthday!

Needing - To Diet and get serious! Y'all...it's bad.

Reading - Nothing. I LOVE to read but I really don't read a book unless I am on vacation or it is the summer. If I get into a good book I cannot put it down. That means I am up reading a book at 1am on a school night when I am normally in bed by 9:30. 

I hope you will link up with Farley too!

Fall Break, An Update, and More

Well, to say I had a relaxing fall break would be a lie. It was nothing but relaxing, but it was FUN! We went to Disney...our first time as a family! Blast! It was hot and we packed it all in. We got home Friday to the chilly weather, but I am loving it. Fall is my favorite season by far.
The week before we left, we did our apple unit. We had a fun filled apple day on Friday. (Unfortunately, my camera with the pictures is at school!)

This week we are starting our pumpkin unit! Lots of fun to be had! One thing we will definitely be starting is our Count of Halloween unit! I have updated this with SUPER cute clipart!


This is a Halloween themed counting book you can use as a craftivity book or a coloring book. The kiddos LOVE to work on this all month then sing it to the parents at the Halloween party! Want this? Head on over to my Facebook page where I am having a giveaway that ends tonight at 9 CST.

Math Center love!

I cannot believe my fall break is in 2 weeks. Just 2 weeks! Where does time go. We have been in school since August 6th so we are in a good routine and things are just humming along nicely. I love my class this year. It is funny how every year I think there is no way I will love this years class as much as last years class. I'm wrong. Every year. They are just precious!
We do literacy centers in the morning and math centers in the afternoon. They love both, but they especially love math centers. I have 12 math centers and they visit each once during the week. (Three centers 4 X a week.) I don't have a "meet with me" math group, which allows me to just rotate around and help those who need it. Today I just watched as they did their thing. It warms my heart so much! Here they are in action.


 
All About 10...with the watches! My kids LOVE these watches!!!!! I'm so glad I have them for numbers to 20!

 


 

 
 


 
We have loved Doodlebugs Color Word unit. This is our last week using it!



Most of these units are from my Number Fun 1-10 unit, which is one of my best sellers!

We have learned numbers 1-10 in our Math in Focus curriculum and are moving on next week!

Currently September

How is it already September? I'm not complaining. Once school starts summer is over for me so I am READY for Fall. My FAVORITE season! I'm linking up with Farley for her Currently linky party!


LOVING - I sooo enjoyed this weekend. It rained most of the weekend so I did a lot of relaxing!

WANTING - I'm dying to get my fall decorations out. Hubby says it's too early. (I think he is in denial that boating season is over and it's September!) Fall is my FAVORITE season.

NEEDING - I feel like I say this every Currently...but I gotta get serious about my diet. It's out of control!

3 TRIPS - I'm dying to go to Vegas...mainly for I Teach K and not to gamble! :)  Would love to go to Maine and Hawaii. Maine in the fall to look at houses. Doubt I can do the plane trip to Hawaii...I don't like to fly!

I hope you will link up too!!!
