No foolin'! It's April!
Time for Farley's Currently Link-Up!
I am on Spring Break this week, and love watching all 4 hours of the Today Show while I'm doing this and that. Today I saw some funny photos about why kids cry, that have gone viral.
On that same note, I love having no time parameters this week. I can stay up and read and not worry about being a zombie the next day.
It's another day of cold here in WI. Usually I go away somewhere warm during Spring Break, but have a big move coming up next week so needed to spend the time (and money) on that.
Sure would be nice to have a warm, sunny day here, though.
I'm looking into washers and dryers - any suggestions???
Teachers in my district have what's called "Professional Hours".
This means we can arrive and leave around the student hours.
So, I am not a morning person and arrive around 8:05, but don't leave each day until about 5:15.
They're called "Professional Hours" because our district assumes you'll be a professional - deciding which time frame works for you. We do have to attend scheduled morning or after school meetings, though.
I'm also hooking up with Holly for her Tried It Tuesday linky.
I've been working on organizing my series books. In third grade we do a whole unit on series books, and I wanted them to stand out in my classroom library.
I got green boxes (which match my gray chevron/green/black color scheme) from Steps to Literacy.
The cute labels are from Creative Teaching Press!
I just ran the book series titles on sticky back paper, and attached them to the CTP stickers.
Are you looking for some fun standards-based Earth Day activities for your literacy groups?
I created this packet with skits, scrambled sentences, cause-effect sheets, and more!
My kids love acting and skits, so I knew I wanted to include a planning sheet for that.
The packet includes 24 Earth Day tips that students use as a theme for their skits.
The goal in the skit is to persuade others to observe that Earth Day tip.
Hope you'll check it out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store!
