Working on Area

Thursday, September 3, 2015

We continued to work on area today, but using much larger shapes and focusing on avoiding gaps and overlaps.  I am so proud of each student for "persevering"!  That's our big word from SMP #1.   Not only did they have fun learning, but they practiced patience with working with a partner and counting up to large numbers, without losing their place!  LOL  These pictures show just how awesome they are doing learning Area! 



Learning "Area"

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

We have had so much fun learning area (CCRSM 3.MD.5)!  Students are spending a lot of time working with tiles, aka square units!  It is a lot of fun watching them apply what they have been learning!

1st Day of 2015/2016

Monday, August 24, 2015

What a great first day of school!  I absolutely loved getting to know my kiddos.  We had a busy day, full of routines and expectations, but we managed to squeeze in some All About Me time.  I loved sitting at the tables reading their information and talking with them.  Their enthusiasm and excitement was contagious.  I look forward to a great year, packed full of fun, adventure, and loads of learning!

I forgot to upload my classroom reveal pictures before today, so here they are.  I'm super excited how great the room turned out.  Enjoy!

Almost Done

Thursday, August 6, 2015

I think hope I'm almost done!  I have the back part of the room done, tables set up,  cubbies organized, and curtains hung.   Now I'm waiting on our class list to see if I need to add more tables.  
After, almost 2 weeks of hot gluing,  hanging, rehanging, and sweating in the warm building, I can say I'm so thrilled with the results.   A huge shout out to my colleague,  Tonia, for being the ladder queen!   I could not have done this without her!

Today is my deadline for completing the rest of the room.  I have many things to do and hope that I don't create more work for myself.  UGH!!

Enjoy the rest of the summer. School starts soon! 


It's SLOWLY getting there!

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Wow, there are only 26 days until school starts!   Where has the summer gone?  Most of mine was spent on vacation, but I have been spending some time in my room.   It's nowhere near done, but I am happy with the progress so far.   

Here's some picture of what I've accomplished so far. 
Thank you to the blog, What the Teacher Wants, for this fantastic idea.   They came out way cuter than I expected!  

Reading Beads are up and ready for readers to earn beads! 


After is coming!   You can see a sneak preview in the next picture!
Love our Teacher Time area!

Okay that's it for now.   As I said above I am still working on the room.   My goal is to have it completely ready to go by August 7.  Wish me luck!
