That Silly Cat!

Well, I have enjoyed 4 snow days off this week. I love a good snow day or 2, but a week? Not.so.much. We got 8 inches then got another 2. We had fun on Monday and Tuesday but yesterday and today the temps have been BRUTAL...so no more snow play. I have been able to update a few of my units. One of the first units I created was my Silly Cat (you know who) unit. It was originally a certain famous author unit but since that is a big NO NO...I changed it to Happy Birthday Silly Cat!

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Happy-Birthday-Silly-Cat-Math-and-Literacy-Centers-206839

 It contains 8 literacy and 8 math units for your kindergarten or 1st grade classroom. I originally planned on doing this theme next week and then the week of Dr. Seuss' birthday but since we have missed all week and I already had everything planned.....we will just being doing 1 week! Here is a little sneak peek of my updated unit!

I love this week. We usually have dress up days and our cafeteria makes a special snack! I'm sure we will do many of the things we did last year.  I love to read Dr. Seuss' books to the kiddos. It is super good for those kiddos who still can't rhyme. So...what do you do for Read Across America Week?

Valentine's Day Recap

Well, I don't know about you but it was a CRAZY (and long) week! We had a reading night at school (until 7:30), parent teacher conferences (until 6:00) and then Valentine's Day party on Friday. The kiddos were super excited and we had a fun day! Here is a little of what we did!
On Friday, we passed out our Valentines.

 
We did this SUPER cute activity from Curriculum Castle. They loved it!.

We also did our Valentine Conversation Heart Graphing. (Note to self: Next year....change the white to blue. The boxes I bought this year didn't have white but blue instead!)

We ended our day with a fun party. Here is the picture I used for Scrapbooks this year.


I'm super excited because we are expecting snow tonight and tomorrow. Like significant snow. We had so much last year I was SICK of it, but I've been DYING for a good snow this year! I think it's coming!!!!! Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

Currently February

I'm linking up with Farley again for her currently series!


 
 
 
Listening: I don't even know what he is watching! I'm trying to finish up on the computer so I can go play with little bit!
 
Loving: My newest Stitch Fix I got on Friday. Y'all. I haven't had a stitch fix in a long time. The last time I tried the service, they were relatively new. I would put in a for a box and it would be over a month before it would come. I'm quite impatient and didn't love it! Now....they are FAST people. I put in a for a box and literally got it in like 5 days! 5 days people!!!! I'm always amazed that they are spot on. When I get a pair of jeans I think there is no way they will fit. They've never seen me! They were PERFECT!!!!! I don't know about you but I don't have time to shop these days. I love that they send me things that I would never find in my hometown. I love that I can try it on in my room and send it back in my mailbox with no shipping costs! If you haven't tried Stitch Fix, I really encourage you to give it a try! It's hassle free and super cute clothes!

Thinking: Y'all. We have the SLOWEST internet on earth. When we moved in our house, I was silly and signed a 2 year contract with Dish. We only get so much internet usage and then they "slow us down". WHAT??? We are finally get faster, unlimited internet on Tuesday. I cannot WAIT to watch some Netflix!
 
Wanting: To buy EVERYTHING in the new Matilda Jane release that came out today. Eek! I'm dying. (And so is my wallet!)


Needing: A great Valentine Craft. I can't find anything I just love! Got ideas??

Pageant Name: I don't know anything about pageants. I've never been a pageant girl. I'm thinking Know-It-All Sweetie??? Probably not a name that would help me win, but I'm just being honest!

Also, I am having a SuperBowl Sale in my TPT store! If you are anything like me, you would MUCH rather shop on TPT than watch the Superbowl!!! :)

100th Day Fun

Our 100th day was Friday! Woo! Hoo! I love the 100th day. Having it on a Friday made it a bit more....crazy. Those children were so excited! I may or may not have done things totally different and I may or may not do that again next year. In the past I had 4 groups and we switched every 30 minutes. Very organized. (That is me...OCD...organized.). This year I decided to do 7 groups. I assigned them to their first group then they came to me to see where they went next. I looked around to find a group with openings and sent them there. Lord Have Mercy. I thought I was gonna lose my mind! They had fun but I think I'll go back to OCD next year! :) Here are some of my favorite shirts this year:

We did the fashion show from Kinder-Craze. ADORBS! They loved it and we had so much fun! :) I highly recommend it for your 100th day!

We also did lots of other fun activities. Writing to 100 (ok...they didn't think that was a lot of fun!).

100 day necklaces with fruit loops

Their favorite activity HANDS DOWN was building a tower with 100 cups. They LOVED it so much!



We also made a 100 day snack at the end of the day. Yet another favorite.

My team of teachers (minus my aid who had to leave early) had these ADORABLE shirts made this year! So fun!
When is your 100th day? I hope you had as much fun as we did!

Go Noodle Sanity Savers

First of all, HELLO! I realize I haven't posted in over a month! YIKES!
When I saw that Elizabeth at Kickin' It in Kindergarten was having a GoNoodle linky party I knew that was my chance to get back on board! I am always amazed when people tell me they haven't gotten on board with Go Noodle yet! Y'all. It's awesome! My kiddos LOVE it. (And I do too!)

http://kickinitinkindergarten.com/gonoodle-sanity-savers-linky/


Brain Break: Roller Coaster is one of their favorites. Here is a quick glimpse:
video


They love anything Koo Koo Kanga Roo really!!!

Happy Place: I'm happy anywhere with my family, but especially here:


I LOVE Destin, Florida. We go every fall break (and now Spring Break too) but we didn't go this past Spring Break because we went to Disney so I really seem to be missing it right now! (I did go in August for a weekend boat Poker Run with hubby but didn't get to lay on the beach. GASP! I know!)

Guilty Pleasure:  Jane.com. Y'all. It's bad. Yes. Items for $4-$25 is a great deal....but when you buy 10 in a week...not so much! I need an intervention.


Keep Calm and...Pray for a Snow Day! I know. I know. I was sick of them last year. (We had 18) But in general...I LOVE Snow Days. It was a possibility of ice/sleet tonight but I think it's gonna miss us. It looks warm for the next 10 days. Maybe in February!

Twinkle

Today was an exciting today in my classroom! We received a special delivery from the North Pole!


The package so cold and the kiddos loved it! They all had to feel it!

This is my first Classroom Elf. A sweet teacher won an elf in a giveaway and asked if I would like it for my Kinders! Uh...yes! I have done it with my daughter but not with a class. I LOVE that I got this opportunity because those kids that don't have one or have never heard of it...they were SUPER excited! I mean...look at that face with the hands over her mouth!

I read the story to the kiddos!


And then...we all felt her before we gave her a name. 


They all came up with some cute names. Rosy was my favorite. Shocker - There was an Elsa, but alas....Twinkle it is! (Which I like too!)


So our Elf adventures begin. It should be a challenge keeping up at home and at school. My plan is for the elf to disappear each day after I leave (I have some connections) and the not return until after my little girl goes to the gym for announcements! Whew!!! It's gonna be a LONG month...but a FUN one! I'm SUPER excited!!!!
