Starting To Shape Up...

Slowly but surely, my classroom is coming together.  I am really happy with the Hollywood/Movie theme that I chose for the coming year.  Here are just a few pics as the room begins to take shape...
Our Class is Buckets of FUN!

Daily 5 Board

Board outside our classroom.  I will hang student work here throughout the year.
This area will be a "spotlight" on students and their work.
Calendar and Lunch Menu Now Showing!
Lunch Choice Popcorn Boxes  

Stay tuned for more...
How is your room coming?  Have you started on it yet?  Soon?
I'd love to hear about it!

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....
THIS!
And THIS!
And THIS!!!
Now...REWIND...
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....
SO... 
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...
DRUMROLL PLEASE............
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 accident...to 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,

Loving:  My Spray Tan...the first one I have ever gotten.  I wanted to try it out before our spring vacay just to see what it would look like.  I'm very pleased!  I can't wait for my next one...because it will mean it is vacation time!!!
Thinking:  Evaluation this week...yup...gotta love having these again even after teaching 17 years!  NOT!  lol
Wanting:  Spring Break to HURRY UP!  Only TWO more WEEKS!!!
Needing:  Spark!!!  I haven't drank any today, and I'm needing a caffeine fix!  lol

Thanks again, Farley for hosting this for us!
I'm off to do some blog visits!

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
...and...
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!

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!

Then we PARTIED

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