Monday Made it!

Hey all! 
Linking up here for my favorite linky, Monday Made it! I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics! :)
Here are a few things I have made in the last month that I have wanted to share with you! 

My itty bitty ghost unit! I blogged about this last week, but I am really excited about it! It is a small unit, perfect for squeezing into your busy week. Who doesn't love ghosts?? It has a graphing activity, a writing activity, and a literacy and math center. You can find it here in my TpT store!

I made these new name tags for my kids. They may look simple, but I LOVE them. I am obsessed with the labels I put on them that reminds the kids of their mailbox number and there small group animal.  I also put the name tags  on the tables with packing tape and so far they are sticking so well! I hate, hate, HATE, when my name tags get crinkled and come undone from the table. 

This is my chicken coop! I use this starting the first week of school and introduce it after reading Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein. After we read the book, we talk about raising a quiet hand and listening when other people are sharing a story or talking to us. Anytime talking without raising a hand gets out of control, I take a chicken out of the coop. If they lose more than 3 in one day, they owe me 5 minutes with their heads down at the end of the day. So far this year ( knock on wood), we haven't lost more than 2. 

Have a fantastic week!

Five for Friday!

Hey all! 

Once again, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for Five for Friday! This week I have a couple things to share from my TpT store. I am excited to share them with you, and I have a freebie!!! Who doesn't love those, right?

Fall is so fun and so is my new unit! I named it the Itty Bitty Unit, because if you are like me, there is so much to fit in each week and so little time. This mini unit is perfect for fitting in a theme in a quick and easy way! I included a graphing idea, a writing prompt, and one literacy and math center! You can find it here!

This unit is near and dear to my heart y'all! I am a Halloween baby afterall! 

Ok, so here it is!! The freebie! I use this in small group to practice sounding out CVC words with the kiddos. For each sound, they put on play dough ball in the circle. I have included a mat for CVCe words as well.  If you download and have the time, please leave me some feedback! It would be much appreciated! :)

Alright, so one more thing I have to share with you from my store and I am sharing it because I AM IN LOVE. My kids are doing so awesome with these sheets! I just couldn't believe it. It has only been a week and they have got it down! These pictures are from my Listening Center Comprehension Response Sheets. This week we worked on identify the character in the story. Here are some pictures of the kids work. I love the shark on on the right. What a little artist! 

Ignore the yucky filter from my phone. I forgot to take it off! 

Next week is spirit/Right to Read week. We have a carnival theme for Right to Read week. I am working with one of the teachers on my team to create a totally awesome outfit for SuperHero Day. So excited to share it with you! Stay tuned!

Last but not least, I have hit a pretty big milestone with my blog and I am slowly picking up followers. Thanks so much for reading, sharing your ideas and thoughts, and following along on my adventure. Teaching is not only my job, but my passion! I am so glad that so many others share it too. I have learned of SO many great ideas from other teachers through blogging. 
Thank goodness for technology right?

Stop by the link up and see what the other teachers were up to this week!

Happy Friday! Have a super weekend!

Five for Friday and October Currently

Happy fall!!

I am linking up here with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday link up  and... Oh Boy Fourth Grade for her October Currently post! 

This week my Five for Friday will be apple and farm themed. We have had some fun the last two weeks! 

Our apple tasting day!! We had lot's of fun! 

T is for Tractor!

Our pig pen!! The kids loved this one, but this teacher needs a drying rack!!! 

A fun little math activity I got from Play dough to Plato, to help us tell the difference between a 6 and a 9. The kids got really creative with this.  The bottom one is a dinosaur with marshmallows on his back and a dinosaur with spikes. They are having a dance party with strobe lights! Sounds like fun right? :)

Last but not least, we got to have our first Green Team celebration. The kids got certificates if they were on green all month, and those who were got to have a special dig in the treasure box. I have a great class this year!! 

Now for my October Currently. I am so excited for the month of October!! We have two field trips coming up this month ( I got to plan my first field!!), a walk-a-thon, Right to Read Week/Spirit Week, Halloween, and my birthday (also on Halloween!)!!!

Have a great weekend!!!
