I needed this. My body needed this! I've been reading about all the adventures people have gone on this weekend like traveling to see family, football games, and who can forget Black Friday shopping. I for one am happy to be home in my jammies. ALL.WEEKEND.LONG. I'm fighting off a cold or something so this is just what the doctor ordered.
With all my jammie time I have been busy getting some things done for my store. Here's a little sneak peek and what's new in my store just in time for the big Cyber Monday/Tuesday sale at Tpt.
If you haven't already heard...Tpt is having a sale and I am too! You can get 20% off in my store Monday and Tuesday and if you enter the promo code CYBER at check out Tpt will throw in another 8%. I have lots of new goodies ready for you!
I've been working on my Reading Street Homework packets this weekend and I now have the first 3 units done.
I have also been working on some Word Work activities to include into my morning routine. I have 3 of those done too!
All day today I have worked on some Christmas Math Stations. I made some Winter themed ELA/Math Centers but I was feeling festive today so I wanted some Santa stuff. I know we can't all use it (I really shouldn't, I have one student I will have to change it up for) but it is December starting tomorrow and I feel like Santa should be present!
These are all Common Core aligned and more importantly, I've created them knowing what my firsties are working on RIGHT NOW. And even more importantly what they need the most help with. I think these will be in my stations all month long.
Next up is just a little favor I keep forgetting to keep. I created a DIBELS goal chart a few months back and my neighbor wanted a goal chart for sight words. So I created one yesterday for her to use in her room. Do you keep track of sight words? I'm really not that good at it, I need a little organization on my side to figure out how I want to go about this. I'm going to lean on her for some help in this area.
This is used with clothes pins to move kids up the chart just like a traditional behavior chart. It is really motivating for them to see where they are on the chart and what their next big goal is. I use this for DIBELS and it has made a huge difference in their Oral Reading Fluency.
I already blogged about my other products I've had in the works over the last few weeks so I won't bore you with those. I am currently sitting here waiting for my last product of the night to load so thank you bloggy world for keeping me company while I wait. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and return to school energized and ready for the madness that we teachers like to call December. Happy Teaching!
