A little of this and a little of that...

So, I got the blogger app on my phone. I have made a few posts using it and was surprised when I logged on and didn't see my last post. I apologize that my Dr. Seuss pics didn't make it. We have been working on our district assessments for reports the last two weeks. I am excited that all my reports are done. Next week in parent conference week so it is going to be a long one. I always lok forward to meeting parents to talk about their sweet littles ones that I get the pleasure of teaching everyday. But I don't lok forward to all the sitting, talking , and long week. Here is what we have been up to.

Last week we read Yertle the Turtle and then completed the cute craftivity. We also read Horton Hears a Who and completed the super cute craftivity but I guess I didn't get a picture of it :( I can't find the link for where I got the super cute craftivities. I will look at school on Monday for the credits page that goes with it so I can give credit to the talented person who created it. I purchased a super cute unit from The Teachers' Cauldron on TpT. My kiddos had so much fun doing fish math and then getting to eat their fish for snack. I found it odd how their numbers varied from one page to another. I think there was a gold fish bandit in the room that day ;)
Thing One and Thing Two were inspired by a Pinterest post that did not have a link so I created my own templet. My kiddos giggled soooo hard when having their hands painted.

We finished off a fun filled week with some not so silent reading in first grade. My little ones had so much fun reading from their favorite Dr. Seuss books all week. It was exciting to see how they really got into reading during a time when millions of others kids just like them would be celebrating the same thing they were.

I have to share what I got to do yesterday after school. I have a new niece, Paisley who is 5 weeks old and I got to meet her for the first. AND I got to see her big sis, my sweet Taylor. Who I haven't seen since July! My hubbies sister and her family are moving from Washington to Florida and made a stop in California for a visit. I also got to see my other niece, Laina who is 5 months old. I got my baby fix!!!!

Here is one last pic...

This is how I am working tonight... A glass of wine, Footloose, and a little school work.
