March Currently and New Products

Hello March! Hello Spring! Good-bye Winter! Good-bye Snow!... Oh wait, we're suppose to get 10-25cm of snow tonight. Grrrrr! No more snow please! Unless we get a snow day. Then it'll be worth it. I'm linking up with Farley for her Currently of the month. Here we go...

Way back in September, I saw this great idea floating around to make "new student" bags full of everything you would need for a new student--classroom handbook, desk name plate, hook tag, etc. So when I was getting everything together for my new class, I created five bags for new students. I thought I was being overly cautious, but figured if I didn't use them next year, I'd probably just use them again the following year.

Well turns out someone installed a revolving door on my classroom this year and I have had a total of 7 students move out and 6 new students move in. So I ran out of new student bags and have to make all new stuff for my 6th new student starting on Tuesday! Errrggh! Right before report cards too... So stressful!!

Anywho, my three A's. I like animals, especially my adorable puppies (see left side bar if you have not seen their adorable-ness before!) and I love awesome friends who are always there for me to rant and rave to. I hate annoying people... who complain about things that don't matter and who treat people like they don't matter. Boo to them!

Seeing as it's report card month I have been really procrastinating (of course) so I have put together a few new products for TpT. First up, I finally finished my St. Patrick's Day Word Work Centres. Click the picture below to check them out at TpT.

Included in this pack are a stamping centre, mixed up sight words, long i word family sort, scrambled sentences, and ABC order.

I needed to make some sight word cards to practice with my lowest reading group, so I put together some bright and colourful rainbow sight word cards. I made two different packs--Dolch word list and Fry words. Click the pictures to check them out.

I have also been working on my Year-End Memory Book. This is a pack of pages to create a keepsake for your students to take home at the end of the year. They get to reflect back on their favourite activities throughout the year. There are 57 different pages--some for each month, season, and holiday. There are also pages for each school subject and activity.

And of course I had to leave you with a freebie. This is a little how-to writing activity I put together. We start out graphing how we like to eat our Oreo--by splitting, dipping in milk, or biting. Then we put together a little circle book with directions on how to eat an Oreo. Of course we have to do some Oreo tasting to go with out writing! Yum! ;) Click the picture to get your free Oreo writing activity.

  2. Wow everything looks super!!! Loving it. Totally putting off report cards and working on new activities too. I feel like my classroom has a revolving door on it, except it only goes IN!! LOL. I have had 4 Newbies in and only one out.

    1. Thanks, Dynelle. I'm glad I'm not the only one with a revolving door. At least my class is trying to balance itself out! :) Enjoy the rest of your week!
