Sunday Sneak Peek

Happy Fall Y'all! I'm so sorry about my lack of posting, but please just stick with me. In this, my 13th year of teaching, I'm feeling more overwhelmed than any year so far. I think once I get through my first Ohio Teacher's Evaluation I'll be able to breathe a little bit easier. I promise y'all I'm working until all hours of the night, but I'm feeling so behind! Okay...enough of the Sadsville and onto my Sunday Sneak peak. This past week we learned all about leaves. We not only learned…

Black Friday!

That insane day called "Black Friday" is just around the corner! Alarm clocks set to go off at a ridiculous hour, people camped out at the malls to be the first through the door, and the overall mad dashes to find the best deals for the holidays.

Plants and a Sale!

As we gear up for open house (yep... only a few weeks from now), we have begun our plant and animals unit! I like this science unit because it is filled with experiments, investigations, projects and research :) All my FAVES! We kicked off this week with the parts of the plant, what they need and how they get it. I made a quick anchor chart with the kiddos. I drew and labeled the flower and tree. The kids drew the pics for what they need :) After we do the anchor chart the kids make a…
