Good morning everyone. I hope you all are enjoying your short week. I know that I love to have the long weekend, but short weeks at school kill me. There is just so much to do and they seem to be so busy. I do have a Main Idea activity that I am going to share with you later tonight. I just wanted to stop by and say hello and ask you to check out my Thanksgiving Pack on TPT. Hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Creative Sunday

Hey Guys!

   I had a little extra time today between cooking sweet potatoe casserole, broccoli casserole, and cleaning the kitchen. So I decided to create a quick set of tens frames that can be used month to spice things up a little.

   Being an AMSTI school, we love to use ten frames. The kids really like them too. It turns into this big contest between them and me.

I am excited to use this in my classroom and I will update as soon as I get some feedback from the kids.

If you would like some of your very on visit my TeachersPayTeachers store.
Thanks and talk to you soon.

Beginners Frustration

OK. So I am new at this as you can see, but here is my frustration. I am having trouble connecting with people. I don't know how to get my name out there. So if you have any advice or comments, help a guy out. Thanks and Roll Tide Roll!!!!

Main Idea Monday

WOW!!! What a day we had in my second grade class! I get to school early only to remember that I had PD scheduled for the last half of the day. SO I got to spend a whole two hours with my kids today. I wanted to start posting a Main Idea Monday today, but there was no time to get to that. So just to start the trend off, here is a main idea project I did with the kids last week.

We read the story "I Need My Monster", which by the way the kids really loved! We then talked about what the main idea might be from the story. The students then created these mobils that have the main idea listed on the big part and three details listed on the ghosts.
They had a great time with this and the activity really helped them understand the concept a little better. Since main idea and details are on our CIP this year, I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of it from me. Hope you enjoy!
