Aye, Aye Captain!


It has been a week full of PIRATE Fun!
We read Pirates Past Noon and a lot of other pirate books.
 
 
Our school had Pirate Day, and all the kids got a book and other fun pirate stuff.  The kids and teachers dressed up, and of course, we talked liked pirates too.
 

 
We learned lots of pirate vocabulary and shared it during our PTO night with all the parents.




 
We even made these really adorable pirates!  :)
 

 
What a FUN week learning about all things PIRATES!!!!
 
Nobody had to walk the plank!

Magical Product Swap




I was so excited to participate in the Magical Product Swap once again!  It is always fun to swap and use amazing work of others with your students.  My kiddos just loved Jessica Boschen's Money Matching and Word Problems Spring.  Jessica is a wonderfully talented creator of fabulous items and I just love her blog, What I Have Learned Too.  Check out the product I was able to use!






 
This was the perfect center activities!  Money word problems are always a skill that students need extra reinforcement with and this was the best product! 
 
Check out Jessica's Blog!!!

Smile Tickets

The count down is beginning for my last quarter.  This time is always hectic and chaotic with tons of extras, assessments, tests.....  The list could continue for pages.  Anyways, I decided to revamp some of my positive behavior punch cards.  I created these new punch cards to use.  I figured some positive reinforcement might be needed to make it till the end of year.  :)

Getting into Shape!


Well spring is finally here (I think it may stick around this time).  We all know what that means.  Time to get in shape!  Well, we decided to get into shape with geometry!  :)  I know pretty corny, but that is why we are teachers.  My class had a great time learning about polygons and three-dimensional shapes.  The students have learned about faces, vertices, and edges.  We had a blast creating our own shapes out of toothpicks and marshmallows.  Who does not like to play with food?!?!?
