Boxes. Boxes. EVERYWHERE!

So, at the end of the year, I found out that I would be moving to fourth grade for the 2014-2015 school year.  Since I had just had my car accident...I had to have others help me move to my new room...

Today, we began inservice...and I walked into....
And THIS!!!
I was so ahead of the game for this year....planning a CiRcUs theme for my second graders...
made purchases, printed posters, banners, nameplates...etc.  
THEN I found out about the move to fourth grade....
I racked my brain all summer on my new fourth grade theme...
thinking Circus might be a bit immature for them...but I couldn't make up my mind...
But tonight...I think I have it...
My new class theme will be Hollywood/Movies...  I've already started finding a ton of stuff!  We have all day Wednesday and Thursday in our classrooms...NO meetings...Yay!  I can't wait to get started on my new fourth grade classroom!

Well...what theme are YOU using this year???

I'm Back....

From where you ask...

From a car losing our beloved furbaby, Maggie Bleu...I've been out of sorts for a bit.  There have been good times though, and I cherish them more than ever!
Now I'm back...and SO happy to announce that I will be teaching 4th grade this coming year...and only teaching Reading/L.A. and Social Studies...JUST MY FAVS!!!!
So...I'll be stalking more fourth grade blogs but will not forget all of my other blog reads, as you all have such wonderful, creative ideas!
I have two weeks left of summer vacation...Yeah, you read that right...2 weeks left!  Inservice begins on July 21 and students come back July 29.  I'm excited about my new 4th grade team...will miss my 2nd grade team terribly...and look forward to what the new school year holds.
I'll be back to blogging regularly soon...I've truly missed it!
Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!
I'd love to hear when you go back to school!

Many Blessings,

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

We've all grown up with the wonderfully, whimsical characters of Dr. Seuss.  What smiles and laughter he has given to children, of all ages, over the years...and his books just keeping giving...and will continue to give!
Thank you Theodor ~Seuss~ Geisel
Happy 110th Birthday!
We are celebrating Dr. Seuss and Read Across America this week.  I've got my hat ready!  I'll post pictures of each day's events!  I can't wait!

❤ Feel The Love ❤

Hope you all had a Happy Valentine's Day!
My kiddos had the best time creating and celebrating the ❤❤❤!
Our story this week was The Valentine Bears.
I created a cute packet for this sweet story by Eve Bunting.

Our Valentine week was cut short with TWO snow days...which no one seemed to mind!  :)
But we did have to spend a lot of time on Valentine's Day doing some necessary crafting that we missed out on those two days.  
Thankfully, we had already taken all the pictures for our parent/grandparent valentine!
So all we had left was to assemble them!
They turned out SO cute!!!
We also made Valentine mail bags for our valentines...
We used hearts to create...
the CUTEST designs for them!

...the afternoon away!

Then...Mrs. Wrinn went home to her Valentine to celebrate her 27th wedding anniversary!

Hope you enjoyed some time with your sweet students and you special valentine!

❆ ❈ ❆ Got Snow? ❉ ❈ ❆

Or better yet... Got a Snow Day?
WE DID!  In fact...we got TWO!!!
That is very rare for us to get out for snow...and two days in a row??!!
WOW!!! we were suppose to get up to four inches...and we got NOTHING!!!  But school had already been the afternoon, it started to snow...HUGE flakes but it was too warm to stick.  Then it rained after that.  This evening...the snow finally started again and began to stick!  Yippee!  And we got the call that we were cancelled tomorrow!  Yippee!

The only thing is...we were going to finish our Valentine Photo project so they would be ready on Valentine's Day.  We'll be a little pressed for time on Friday...with our party...but we can let something else go in the morning to get them done.  They are too cute not to finish! on to the present things at hand...

Stay warm and safe!

100th Day, Chromebooks, and AdvoCare...OH MY!

My 2nd Graders are 100 Days Smarter!!!
We had the best time with our 100th Day!

We made 100th Day Headbands

Did some things in 100 seconds

Made a gumball machine with 100 gumballs

And did some fun out-of-your-seat activities in 100 seconds.
Then another day, was chromebook training.  We are so excited to get our chromebooks, and have lots of activities coming up to use them with! 
And Mrs. Wrinn finished the AdvoCare 10 day cleanse this week...and started on days 11-24...with 6 lbs. lost, no more hot flashes, and tons of energy!
Despite the cold...and snow...with NO snow day's been a GREAT WEEK!
How has your week been?
