Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party

I am linking up to Flying into First Grade to her "Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party"


It is Tic Tac Toe.  I am going to go down on the right column.

Dream Vacation-Australia.  I don't know if I will ever be able to go but the dream is there.  It has everything...beaches, the outback, the Opera house, the Great Barrier Reef and so many more things I would love to see and do.

Books I'm Reading- I'm reading couple of books at the moment.  For school I'm reading the Daily Five..I have gone from teaching 4th grade (mostly math and science for 7 years) to 1st grade next year so I'm trying to read everything I can.  My summer reads-I just started Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace.  There were prequels called the Grimm Diaries.  It was giving you background information on some the characters but also on the story line.  I don't know if I will look at fairy tales the same after reading these.  Books I have on my list is Fault in Our Stars by John Green and also a book called Dark Light which supposedly like 50 Shades of Grey.  Those were books recommended to me.

Hobbies-I'm not quite sure I have a hobby anymore.  I like to blog when I get the chance.  I love to read but only seem to have the time during the summer or during breaks.  I LOVE taking pictures especially of my daughter.  When I do have time I love to make digital scrapbooks.

If you would like to join in on this linky party please go to Flying into First Grade.

End of the Year and Currently

So the end of the year has come and gone!  It was a very crazy end of the year...I'm so glad it is over.  Our last time in the library the librarian put out pattern blocks for the students to play with.  This is what my students did.





Then my favorite

Well I have some exciting and sad year I will not be in 4th  grade.  I will be teaching 1st grade!!!!!  I am very excited and nervous.  I have asked to move out of 4th grade for several years now.  The opportunity came along when a 1st grade teacher asked to move to 4th grade. (I am very thankful for this person)  For anyone that is in a testing grade knows the opportunity to move doesn't come along very often.  It seems like once you are in a testing grade you are stuck there for LIFE!!!  So I jumped at the chance. BUT I'm sad to be leaving my green hall friends. (4th and 3rd grade is in that hallway)  We are like family in our hallway.  I won't be working with my friend, Farley anymore.  :*-(  I am moving to the yellow hallway which is totally on the opposite side from green hall.  I am probably the farthest way possible from green hall.  But I have already got plans to 1st graders will be writing letters to 4th graders.  I am going to buddy up with 3rd grade to do some math.  I will be back to visit green hall often.  Farley, please let me know when ya'll order Jimmy John's.  Also don't forget about me during professional development days for lunch.  Just have an Itty Bitty check when you get into the car to leave.  haha!  Really and truly I am very excited about this change.  It is a new challenge.

Math 2D shapes

I had my kids do this with a sub.  Of course this was after we learned and reviewed the attributes of 2D shapes.  They needed to draw a picture using 2D shapes but they were required to draw certain shapes.  Here is the paper I gave them.

 These are some of the drawings I got.



I love this bedroom!
