The Easter Bunny

So I have a new Jan Brett book The Easter Bunny that I am very excited to read to my monkeys next week. I have planned some fun activities to go with it to review adjectives and to help my kids practice writing a summary of a story. Check this one out on my teacher pay teacher page. I think I am getting better at posting things to this... If you are a follower check it out and leave me some feedback :)

The Time Change????

Is everyone else feeling as tired and worn out as me and it is only Monday! My kids have been so quiet today but I think that is because honestly they are all just plain tired like me! My family built a fence for the backyard this weekend so no rest for me. As for school this week we are doing an Author's Study on Kevin Henkes.... I am in the process of coming up with some originials that are on the subject but haven't gotten that far yet. As you can tell I have been busy this weekend.

This weekend I also had my first purchase on TPT! I know it isn't much but I am excited about that :)

Here is a freebee that I posted. This is my students daily behavior chart. Go to my TPT site and download it! I would also love some positive feedback :) Haven't had anyone rate my stuff yet.

Hump Day!

Today is humpday and I am glad we finally made it. March seems like its is going to be along month. Its already getting warm here and our kids have started getting spring fever. Have anyone elses?

I added another Laura Numeroff Writing Activity that goes along with my smart lesson on TPT click here to check it out. It was a great way to have children feel like authors along with teaching them about cause and effect.

Teachers Pay Teacher Experience

So Today was an average Tuesday. Had a good day with the kiddos. During my planning and after school I have been working hard to figure out how to add a a preview image to things on my teachers pay teacher site.... and hours later I finally figured it out. You have to take a screenshot- something I learned how to do tonight. On my Mac you click command-shift-3 and it saves whatever is on your screen as a dpn file. Then my problem was the file was too big. I ended up editing it with photoshop to make it smaller. This took a while. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. So here it the link to what I posted

Its free download it and let me know what you think!

Well its off to bed for me! One more work day this week and its fun friday.

First Post From Second Grade

This is my first time making a blog or a teaching blog I should say I have been pursing photography for a while now and have tried my hand at that. I am going to attempt to stay caught up and put on my blog things that my second grade did each week that worked well and things that didn't.
