Staying Busy in December!

Ahh!  December is almost here.  My shopping is almost done and I am so relieved that I am not running around looking for gifts.  In between I have been creating my latest cutest pack! 

Staying Busy in December

I have included LAL/Math printables just like my other sets. 
 These are some of the fun sheets included.

These fun math printable can be used in so many ways.  That's why I love them.  I usually use them for centers.  That way I never have to look for things to have them work on.  This is all ready for them.  If not for centers you can do this for morning work, buddy work or even homework.  
Practice makes perfect!

We are currently working on digraphs and irregular plurals for Wilson's and Grammar.  So what better way to practice than with cute worksheets like this.  I love the winter clip art.  The kids have so much fun coloring them after they are done.

For Grammar the little ones are also reviewing inflectional endings and syllables.  This pack has it all to keep challenging your students and keep reviewing past skills until they have mastered them. 

I have also included a little bonus craft.  Have your students create this stocking and make it their own.  You can toss in a writing prompt or have them decorate it with glitter and pictures.  Have them make it their own.  They will love it.

This sweet pack will have you covered for everything in the month of December. All you need to do is print and place wherever you'd like wether it's homework, centers… you name it!  

This pack includes:
*Warm Me Up {short o sounds}
*ABC Order
*Writing Prompts
*Snowman Troubles -Making Connections { read, highlight & write }
*Possessive Nouns
*Inflectional Endings
*Irregular Pronouns

Staying Busy in November!

Ahh.  It's already the middle of October.  With paperwork, testing and deadlines I am missing my favorite month of the year. My next favorite is November, so if I miss a bit of October, I'll manage.   I've been working on my latest product.  A few weeks ago, I posted my Staying Busy in October pack. My students are LOVING it.  It comes in handy for centers, buddy work and even morning work.  If I don't finish the whole pack soon in class, I will start giving some out for homework.   I decided to keep it going and create it for each month.  This is my latest: Staying Busy in November

This is the perfect pack for the month.  It comes with cute printables that your little ones will truly enjoy.  Let's take a look at some of my faves…

We review short vowel sounds around November/December  This would be perfect for centers.  My students love coloring/identifying letters and letters sounds.

We introduce/review patterns, number bonds and skipping at the beginning of the year.  These are also a bit tricky at the beginning.  What a better way to practice/reinforce these skills with some fun printables.  Use these in the morning when they walk through the door and get those minds going for the day!

I love to toss in some extra fun printables to get them excited for the holidays.  My little ones always love to talk about themselves, what they like and what they already know.  So these printables are perfect for just that.  They are able to work on their reading, writing and opinions.  

My Students LOVED doing this last month.  I would put it in their folder every Thursday when they had to read the story of the week. They filled it out according to the story and then told me their favorite part.  They love telling me what they think.  It's great for comprehension and identifying parts of the story. =)  

I seriously love this pack.  It has everything we need to review our skills for the month.  It's fun, exciting and hopefully will get my students excited for the holidays.  Drop by my store  to see what else is in this pack.  Make sure to download the preview for a better look!  With literacy and math printables, this combo has you covered.  

This combo pack includes:
*Feed Me {ending sounds with short e and short i}
*Turkey Sort
*My Favorite's
*Turkey traditions {writing}
*Roll and Fill {short vowel sounds}
*ABC Order
*Thanksgiving Writing
*Turkey Trouble {reading and making connections}
*Turkey Talk {sentence mix up}
*Retell It
*Apples in Order! {sequence}
*Can Have Are
*I Am Thankful
* Tommy is Thankful {reading and making connections}

*Number Bonds
*Roll and Cover
*Roll a Turkey
*Skippity Do Dah {skipping by two's}
*What's the Pattern?
*See It and Write It {how many}
*Even or Odd?

Stay tuned for months ahead.  

I am resting and mentally preparing for the week ahead.  So I am off to lay down and relax and watch some football. =)

Happy Sunday!

Classroom Reveal-Finally!

Classroom Reveal!!
Ahhh!  So better late than never right?  I have yet to post my classroom pictures.  It has taken me awhile to make changes to the class and get used to what I see everyday.  If I didn't like something, I would change it and move it around.  Soo without further a dew… here it is!

This is my favorite part of the room.  My desk area.  I love it because it's full of bright colors and visuals for the students to be aware of .  I love the quotes posters I have all over my room.  The students are filled with guidance and rules and they don't even know it. =) I have the rules behind my desk because there are many times a year where I have the students sit in the reading corner (pics below) and we just sit and talk about the rules of the classroom and why it's important to follow them.  It's only necessary to have the clip chart next to the rules so the students are reminded of what they are expected to follow in the room and school.   I got this awesome clip chart from
Learning in Wonderland. It's the perfect color.   

Next is my reading corner!

This is another one of my fave's!  I changed the rug this year. Added bright purple crates (my favorite colors) and fun, cute and cozy pillows.  Can you tell my favorite colors are pink and purple? LOL I am seriously all about the brights this year.  Bright colors are what you see walking in my room.

My phone has recently deleted all my apps.  So my pictures look kind of dull and not bright.  But this is how my room looks from one angle.  I think it's perfect the way I used the same borders for each section.  Saved me tons of time of thinking which border goes best where.  
I love the colors and the way it turned out.

There are where my center backers go.  I am able to fit so much. I usually fit another pencil basket in there along with dry erase markers and crayons.  Everything fits so perfect.  These baskets are so useful. I even have another set by my side and put daily work in them.  You can see them here.

 These are how I use my other baskets for my side of the room.  Every Thursday I print out all the work I need for the following week.  I organize/separate them into different categories: centers, tests, lal and math.  They go into these baskets and I pull them when I need them.  It's been working for me for years now and I love the way it looks. =) Have you noticed I have a title for each bulletin?  I love these.  I grabbed these last year from The Animated Teacher.  They are editable so you can make whatever you want.  I laminated them and reused them again this year.  Love the bright colors.  Goes great in my room.

Again… sorry for the dullness in picture!  I really need a good app to brighten these pics.  Jeez!
Anywho as you can see the other side of my bulletin and baskets.  

Another round of baskets.  I plan on putting center things in them.  Like markers!! 

I have so many markers.  It makes me so happy.  We run through these like water.  I was able to put these on my supply list this year and so happy I did.  Everyone brought them in!!

My objectives boar is very important to me.  It's mostly for me and administration, but they love coming in here and checking it out to see what we are up to for the week.  It's bright and is right to the point.  Very easy to understand which is my kind of thing! It doesn't hurt that the colors are cute either.  This set of objectives was a combo from Crockett's Classroom and Learning in Wonderland

Now for my board on the other side of my room,  I have fabric!  It's the same fabric as last year.  No bubbles or looking funky towards the end of the year.  It last amazing and as you can see I'm using it again this year.  On this side of the room, I am using black bulletin board paper.  Well I ran out of fabric paper last year and then got lazy to go back and get some more.  So for now we have black.  And I don't mind it.  I love the crisp look it leaves.  With the bright colors, it makes it stand out more and just so much more inviting!

Finally, this is my aide's desk.  Some people think she's the teacher when they come in b/c her desk is so much bigger and nicer than mine! LOL I like to jazz up her desk as well with fun quote's posters I got home.  The book bins are one of my newest additions to the classroom this year.  I got them from Really Good Stuff.  They have a new selection filled with tons of bright colored things.  

Phew!  Thank goodness that's done.  I've been working on some things lately and excited to have them out soon!!

Happy Sunday.

Staying Busy in October!

October is my absolute favorite month by far. I love the weather, food, and just the leaves falling from the trees.  It's a great time of the year.  However, I feel like I never have enough things or fun activities to do with my little ones during this month.  The month flies by and I'm left with just a few rink dink printables for my class.  So I created this cute pack that I know my little ones will love.  I think it'll be just perfect for centers.

I really think the printables are full of fun.  

I introduce/review rhyming words with my little ones around September/October.  I think this would be a fun center to toss in and have students practice.  It will keep them on their toes as there are many parts to this worksheet. 

Labeling is always one of those things for me that the kids can never get enough of.  It's another practice guide to review materials they may have not mastered yet.  What better way than to have a fun printable like this one.  

I love when my students read.  I love it even more when they can retell me parts of the story in their own words.  I created this just for that reason.  I think this will go perfect on Thursdays when my students have to read the story of the week.  They can complete this after reading.  I also think you can toss this in your buddy reading center and have students do this after reading the story together.  

We spent a month or so at the beginning of the year reviewing word families.  Sometime there will be students who struggle with them, so this is just another way to reinforce the word families skills and to keep practicing.  It's hard for them to master skills right away, but with fun printables like this, it makes it a bit easier to understand.

Love these for my math centers.  This could take my little ones the entire center.  It will keep them busy for sure.  I even think this would be great for morning work.  As soon as they come through the door in the morning, they could get their minds going with one of these math printables.  I think they would really enjoy it!

I even had the chance to include a cute writing craft!

There are so many more exciting printables in this pack.  I am excited to print and get started once October hits.  I am set for the month and I know my students will be reviewing some important skills.

This set includes:
* going nutty - color coding sounds
* fact families
*abc order
*word search
* carve a pumpkin
*how many syllables?
*halloween writing prompt
*making connections
*roll and cover with halloween characters
*rhyme time
