Sugar High Continues

I thought MAYBE, just MAYBE things would be back to normal today?  But what the heck is normal?  This has been a very long week (and unfortunately not as productive as I wold have liked for it to be).  Monday (which seems like it was two weeks ago) was our hundreds day.  I had all these great ideas, but I most MAJORLY over plan, or my kiddos work slow.  It was still a good day though...(I had 5 kiddos absent -MAN was it quiet! lol).  Our food drive was a success.  Our building (K-5) has about 95% population on free and reduced lunch, so for our students to donate to a food drive was awesome.  The first graders set a goal for 100 cans per classroom and we would donate them to Good Samaritan on Valentine's Day for a gift of kindness.  We collected 594 cans!!  AWESOME! :)   We did go through and count the cans by tens and ones, and tossed out the old dates.  The kids had fun doing it.

Then yesterday was our party.  WOWSWERS I forgot how long it took for firsties to pass out Valentine's :)  We passed them out in the morning, then they partied in the afternoon with their substitute.  Yesterday was one of our crazy special days so they were at specials for an hour and a half. 

I'm finally getting around to posting our ai and ay work and the Treasures Homework/Tests.  Here ya go!

  2. I love your phonics printables and wish I still worked with firtsies(or any students actually) so I could use them with them. The firsties I use to work with loved doing sorts. I was wondering though(I have had my share of typos and missed changes in a template), is the Shape Boxes page suppose to be titled "Long U"?

  12. I am new to teaching and making my way through the changes that are coming (CCSS). It is a year of many new endeavors: new to 1st Grade, new reading series for the district (Treasures), and new math series for the district (Math In Focus). Nothing like starting fresh! I am absolutely loving your blogs and the wonderful ideas you share about your teaching. I am working my way through the reading series and leaning toward changing things up for next year (way too much stuff to get in and really do any of it justice) by working it into a Four Block model. Thank you so much for giving me some great activities and ideas to bring exciting and engaging activities to my kiddos. I look forward to following you!
