I owe you all a big apology.
I know I said I’d post more.
I truly meant it.
life has gotten in the way!
I’m back though… and I’m on SPRING BREAK! I’m going to try to blog so much, that you’ll probably be sick of me! 🙂 I have lots to share though… so get ready to read!
I’m going to get the ball rolling with a quick, easy, and FUN linky! I’m linking up with Flying into First Grade…
It’s the noun game! All of my favorites!
Person- MY HUBBYYYY! He is a sexy stud muffin, is supportive, and just awesome! As you all know, being a teacher’s spouse can be hard! Being a teacher and a coach’s spouse? Yeah, he hears a lot of ranting and raving about parents, spends sleepless nights with me preparing for games or lessons, and has to be REALLY supportive and understanding. I’d say that earns him the fav spot in my life!
Place- Our house. With all of the traveling we do for volleyball, I can’t tell you how many times we say we just want to be HOME! I love our house, and love our time spent together in it.
Thing- CLOTHES! Or… I hate to admit this, but my phone. I use it for SO many things: take pictures, call, text, calendar, look things up… it’s a wonder we survived without technology for so long, isn’t it?! 😉
Animal- TIGERS! I have always LOVED tigers. I want a baby one for a pet.. no big deal, right? My favorite are white siberian, but any are beautiful!
Okay, next I want to share with you something I have been working on for FOREVER! I noticed that I don’t cover nearly enough informational text in my classroom. With it being such a HUGE part of common core, I knew I needed to kick it up a notch. I tied a TON of informational text in with my Famous American project, but still wanted a way to reteach it all, get meaningful reviews, and check student understanding. So, I created one! I created this 62 page pack that has a teach and guided activity for every standard, practice pages with original informational text passages, a graphic organizer, and an I Can statement poster. I waited until I used it in my own classroom so I could tweak it and make sure it worked, and let me tell you, it does! My students loved the passages, and it provided me with a quick, easy way to assess understanding and review! Here’s a preview of this pack!
If you head on over to my TPT shop, you can pick up your own copy here! I can’t wait to hear about others using it! To make it fun, I of course have to throw a freebie in there! Leave a comment with the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you teaching, or a student has said to you! I’ll read them to my husband and let him pick a “funniest” winner to get this pack for free:) GO!
I’m also linking this up with Fourth Grade Flipper for her awesome new linky! I tried this pack, and it works 🙂
