So, I don’t have any new downloads for you tonight, but I want to show you all what I have been working on thanks to my fellow bloggers out there. I decided tonight would be the night that I started to print and put some of the projects together. So, here is my night through pictures 🙂
So, here is my workspace for the evening. If you can look past the lovely set-up of cookies (homemade by my wonderful husband) and milk… you can see the huge mess I’ve already made!
I started the night by printing math games. Many of these games came from Lory’s Page, while others are games that I have made. Now I just have to laminate and cut out 🙂
For my next project, I was inspired by Growing Kinders. She made sight word chants on popsicle sticks. Here is a picture of her final product. I downloaded the resources she shared and got busy! My husband even help me cut some of my labels. Mine aren’t cut as perfectly as hers 🙂
After I was finished putting the sticks together I needed something to store them in. Well, I am at home, so my resources were limited. I found a crystal light container, and it was the perfect size!Then, I needed to make a label! It was a little long, but I trimmed it up so it worked just fine! I used label paper to stick it onto the container! Here are some pictures of my completed project!
I obviously teach 2nd grade, so I have thought of a few alternate ways to use them after I have introduced the sticks at the beginning of the year:
1. Spelling Review
2. Put in a Word Work station so that students can work on them there.
3. Have a student pick a stick and lead the class in the chant.
4. Use for transition time or at bathroom breaks.
5. Incorporate vocabulary practice with some of the chants.
Please check out those activities from the blogs I posted above! I am so excited to incorporate these new things into my classroom next year! Happy Blogging and Goodnight!

Have you ever read Fiona’s Luck? I had never seen it before this year. It’s not your typical St. Patrick’s Day/Leprechaun story. Which is one reason I LOVE it. It’s about a leprechaun king who takes all of the luck from the people in Ireland. A girl named Fiona uses her wits to get a little face-to-face with the king. You just have to read it!! #rootedinreading #specialedition bit.ly/FionasLuck ... See MoreSee Less
We’ve had a lot of hard discussions with our kids lately... especially about loving who you are and who God made you to be. Sometimes you just need a picture book to continue the discussion, so this is what we will be reading tonight: Remarkably You by Pat Zietlow Miller ❤️ Thank you to @ramonarecommends for telling me about this precious book!! #picturebooksofinstagram ...
