Meet Your Teacher Freebie

Meet Your Teacher Day & a Freebie
Our school's Meet Your Teacher was held the day before school started. It was also held during our regular contract hours which was nice. The weekend before I started my search for a cute candy gift to give my new kinders after they completed a scavenger hunt. While at Party City to pick up some hanging decoration to use with my table headers I came across these ICEE squeeze candies.  That's when I came up with the idea to substitute "I See" with ICEE! Check .out the way they came out! This year my classroom has a chevron theme so of course I had to add chevron to the labels! If you use these, my Party City had them 5 for $1

Chevron Table Signs on Manic Monday

Table Signs FREEBIE!
How do you label your tables? Since I teach kindergarten I've always labled them by color. I love getting coordinating baskets to go with a table color. I just finished the ones I'm using in my classroom this school year. I changed from a zebra and monkey theme to a chevron and ?? theme. Not really sure yet if I'm going to add an animal and which one I'd add. I've seen cute little birdies that coordinate well with chevron but just not sure yet. I do have to hurry as next week I start a Kinder Jump Start program at my school. Either way I just thought I'd share these with you! I have both the chalkboard theme and a ink saving white frame included in the download. Enjoy!

Here's the table by color with the chalkboard frames. I love them!

For those of you all that do your table by number, this is what they look like.

Students are scrambling to get their things into their backpacks, cleaning up, putting chairs up, stacking them or whatever system you have in your classroom. This little FREEBIE is a nice visual to your students and even when you have substitute teachers in your classroom. Attach a cute ribbon and hang only the ones necessary for your school/classroom and add to your class decor!

Five for Friday Linky Party March 14

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!
F.F.F. is a weekly teacher linky party where you post five random things from today or this past week on your blog. Then, go to the link above and link your own blog post up at the bottom in the linky tool.Don't forget to grab the buttons!

I've been following Christi Fultz on Instagram and have been super curious about Jamberry Nails. Well Monday night I decided I would try it out! Not just the nails but becoming a consultant! I'm so excited to receive my Start Pack and start showing off these awesome nail wraps to my friends! If you're interested in a free sample email me! There's a great Buy 3 get 1 free sale! The designs they come in are hip, cool, pretty and so many to choose from! Join the nail revolution ladies!

On Tuesday I started using these cool whiteboards with my Reading Groups. I bought them at Target's Dollar Spot. The best part about it is that they were 50% off! Score! I dictate a sentence from their story and they write the sentence on the whiteboard. We've been practicing finger spacing, capitalization, punctuation, stretching words and using all the space on the lines before going to the next line. I love it because we are practicing both reading and writing skills at the same time!

Wednesday was our annual Career Day. There entire school participates and we get a great variety of occupations. Kinder classes went through 4 rotations. The top picture shows my class with an officer from the Tucson Police Department. The middle picture show a student with a 911 dispatcher. He is making a 911 call on a pretend phone. The bottom picture shows our Board Member with a Submarine! 

Aw, my lovely daughter! Thursday night was a 5th grade band concert at the high school. Several elementary schools sent kids to this annual event. She was selected from her school to do a solo. She picked Glad You Came from The Wanted. There was some tough low notes on that clarinet but she rocked it!

Finally Friday! Today was a Records Day / Professional Development day for our school. Our morning started with a meeting about Big Universe. Our school is piloting the program. In this picture I just registered and we had time to explore the site. Big Universe has tons of books for our students. You can search by grade level or reading level. Some of the books are even audio books! I already found some books to use with our current Common Core unit called Gravity.

Well that does it for me and my very first Five for Friday! Now gotta get back to those report cards! Have a great weekend!
