Fabulous in February!

 I can not believe I have not blogged in over a week.  Yikes!   So darn busy with paperwork and wedding, haven't been able to share my ideas and whats going on in the classroom!  


We finally finished our penguins from my penguin bundle and posted them on the board.  They came out so cute and the kids seriously loved it!  Take a look...






Since January literally flew by with all the snow days and holidays we had, it's time for me to take out my February read alouds for the month.  This is where I store my monthly books to read to my little ones throughout the month….

This just looks like a regular crate...



but take a looks at what's inside!!






To read more on what else I store, feel free to check this post by clicking here. It's all about storing and how to make your own crates!



This is the library I put it on to grab when I need a good book for my kiddies.  




If your little ones are anything like mine, they get super excited when they see me put new books in the rack.  They know a new month is coming up and fun books are ahead!  As you can see this month we are celebrating Dental Health, President's Day,  100th Day, Valentine's Day and probably something else I forgot to name. LOL 


This month is seriously full of things to go over.  We're going over presidents in honor of President's Day.  We will also be creating these cute little guys for Valentine's Day that you can check out by clicking here for the sweet little bear and here for the love bugs






Don't forget it's Dental Health month and we need to discuss and review what's important for us to keep our teeth healthy and bright.







I just can't wait to go over all of it with my class.  They love learning about new things and get so excited about creating crafts.  


Lately, I have been shopping for some things to make my centers more exciting for my little ones.  I wanted to add some new ideas  to the rotation and give them something new to work on.  So I went to Lakeshore and grabbed some necessities.





I love these.  I know these will help the students with sorting, sequencing, synonyms & antonyms and reading.  This  small  chart has so much usage and is so versatile.  I can't wait to grab some things from TpT and get these charts up and going.  


Do you use pocket charts?  If you do what ideas or suggestions do you have for me just starting out with these cute centers?  I'd love to hear what works for your class!!

I am seriously in love with those crates. Can you send one down to South Jersey? I think you had more snow than we did last week...but we might be getting more this week. Ugh!!
