It's been a while....

It's been quite a bit since I last posted....busy busy busy as I know you all are. With trying to finish our last few fun things at school before the holidays, having the SHORTEST break ever and finishing up stuff for Christmas, it's been pretty hectic around here.

Here is a pic or two of some things we did before school got out....and it's well..only a couple..sorry! I just realized that I didn't take as many as I thought I did...ahhh darn.

We had fun with the Grinch....of course I didn't take any more pics than this...

The Grinch stole Christmas.
 (love how she looked around the room to find the word Christmas)

The Grinch stole Christmas. He was not happy. His heart grew two sizes. 
He got stuck in the chimney. He stole all of their presents. 

The Grinch got stuck in the chimney. He took all of the presents. He took all of the food.

Then instead of making a list of things we know about Christmas. We made a book.

 We discussed parts of a book, what does a book need, and how we will make one.
 So the first day we discussed a title and the kiddos decided since it's about everything we see, hear, smell, etc. during Christmas then it should appropriately be titled All About Christmas. 
Each page had one word with an illustration to go with it.

Here is my friend working on his picture for the word presents.

Sorry for the lack of pictures. My goal for the new year is to take more pics of what we do in class.....I just forget b/c we get so busy.

I have been working on a few new things. 

I use newsletters in my classroom to let the parents know what is going on. And I like to change them up quite a bit. So I created a set of newsletter templates for the entire year for you. The set includes two formats for each month and they are both editable.
One set has updates, upcoming events, star student, homework, and classroom needs. The other set is blank so that you can add your own headings as you need.

Each set includes graphics that are NOT editable to go along with each month.

Another activity that I just uploaded is a sight word game. 
Click on the picture to take you to my store. 

This game includes:
 2 game boards (one blank, one with varying activities on each spot)
100 sight words (pre-primer and primer list)
 freeze cards
2 dice (one with numbers/one with move ahead, back, etc.) 
a sheet for students to record the words they read, tally how many, write the number, and write any words that they may have had trouble with. 

More to come soon....Happy New Year!!
