I took last Friday off from posting my own personal FFF because I was swamped with our school’s auction. It is our biggest fundraiser and it is a big deal for our little bitty school. We have a silent and live auction. I showed you this picture a few weeks ago..

I hinted that this was going to be our class project. And this is the end result….

Big thanks to my mom and dad for helping out. My dad cut the boards apart {so each student could paint a piece) then glued them back together, framed it up and cut out the cross. My mom helped paint the cross. It was easy and a big hit. I really loved it myself and would have loved to bid on it myself. But, one of my parents won it.

I know Valentine’s Day is waaaaay over but I realized I never shared this picture. I did on Instagram but never here on my blog. I have made fancy bags or valentine boxes in the past for our card exchange but this year I  took the easiest way out possible! I made these cute coloring sheets using Ashley/School Supply Addict clipart and just stapled them to solid white gift bags.

We have a fabulous art program and art teacher at our school. These are my students who won in the school art contest and their pictures have gone to the district competition  and hopefully someone will make it to the state competition too! Can you believe how awesome the owl is?!? All of them are precious but the owl is pretty awesome!

This week has been all about Winter Weather.. we went to school for a 1/2 day on Monday and we were dismissed at 12:15. Then we were out Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It’s been pretty nice to have a few days off to get some things done.

This is my office {it’s in our backyard} and I shared some pictures on my Doodle Bugs Paper /Stationery blog this week if you would like to see where I do all my work!

I’ve also been spending my days off finishing up my latest set of Easter Cut and Paste Printables. They aren’t listed just yet but should be this weekend! Easter is so early this year.. we will start using these in a few weeks.

Enjoy your weekend! Stay warm!

What I’ll be teaching… March and a SALE!

 

yearlyplan

Another month has gone by since my last “What I’ll be teaching” post. This school year is buzzing by so fast! It is pretty scary just how fast it is going. We have our 3rd nine week’s testing week next week. Which means we have just over a 1/4th of the school year left. Yikes!

March is a busy month at our school. We have 9 weeks test (quarterly testing), standardized tests, and Spring Break. That doesn’t leave much time left. Here are a few resources I will be putting to use.

Happy Valentine’s Week! I wish I had some exciting things to share with y’all this week but it has been a pretty normal, routine week in the classroom but a super busy week for me outside of school. So, here is just a quick glimpse of my not-so-exciting week.

We did these Valentine Centers this week. On the left, students had to circle if the word on the card was a month or a year. On the right, students had to read the card and answer the comprehension question.

Students had to read and pick the correct word to go in the blank- the words had inflectional endings

All three of these are in my Love to Learn Valentine’s Pack

Sickness and 4H competitions had 7 of my kids out one day this week. So, we took it easy that afternoon and made these heart caterpillars. I just put a basket of hearts and other supplies they needed in the middle of the floor and they did these by themselves. Super simple but they had fun!

This is seriously one of my FAVORITE products I have made. It is a couple of years old but I pull it out several times a year and we a lot. I used it as an early finisher activity during center time this week.

And, I don’t know HOW we have managed to skip a whole week without using pocket charts but we did not use them at all last week. So, this week they had to be squeezed in with some math counting cards. I also used these as an early finisher activity too.

These are in my Valentine’s Centers Unit.

Our class Valentine party is this afternoon. I swore whatever I was going to do was going to be simple. I saw lots of cute ideas on Pinterest and other places but I picked these heart shaped ring pops up 6/$1.00 and printed some simple cards and I just stapled them to each card.

My students will bring so much for each other that I knew they did not need much. And, I literally went to the store, printed the cards and put them together in about 20 minutes.

 

Have a great weekend! Happy Valentine’s Day too!!
