Is it Too Soon To Think About Next Year??

        I have enjoyed my summer vacation so much!!  This year my husband and I decided to take a two week trip IN THE CAMPER!  At first we thought about going out West, but then decided to stay on the East coast.  We dwindled our itinerary down from 8 stops to 3!!  And I am so glad we did!!!
     It is a lot of work setting up camp!  We went to the mountains, a lake and to the beach!  We had the best weather in the mountains and at the beach!
     Our three teenagers had a great time, except for the lack of wifi in spots!  It only became an issue for the girls when they realized they could not watch the Bachelorette or the Men's Soccer Game.  Our son ran into a few snags with the online college courses he is taking this summer, but other than that, we have not missed the fast paced life we normally live!
Every morning I would wake up, have my quiet time and begin working on a TpT project.  I really cranked out a lot of projects and enjoyed every minute of it!  My husband is a numbers-guy and has told me all along, to grow my business I need a lot of products to appeal to a broad audience.  So I have focused on second and third grade and I have made a unit for basically everything I have ever taught!

If you have not visited my store lately, CHECK IT OUT!
I have about 120 products and I am really excited!
Fill up your cart and get ready for a sale right before school starts!!!

I Think I Can, I Think I Can...

We are there and I am so excited!  The last two months have been extremely rough with a few of my students, but we did it!  We can see the light!!!

I have made several end of the year goodies and want to share!
Here is a packet to get you through the last few days of school.  They are a review and easy enough that the students will not be crying and neither will you!

 This is one of my favorite graphs!  They love telling their stories of what their summer plans are and where they went last year!  By now they know how to collect the data and they pretty much finished it by themselves!  I gave the girls a piece of butcher paper and they made it for the class!
I made several sets of cards and they were able to match the reflexive pronouns and contractions easily!
It always amazes me how much they grow in one year!  They come in so "feeble" and leave so boldly!  I love my job!!!

Don't Be Fooled!

Teaching is not as easy as it looks!  OR
Object may appear bigger than they really are!
I am not sure who is winning right now, but we keep on-KEEPIN' ON!

   After I made the 3rd Grade Science Bundle and it started selling immediately.  I realized I was on to something!  So I looked back at my store and started thinking about all of the units I could pair up together!  I started BUNDLING everything!  I know I love saving money, and apparently so does everyone else!

This unit is a 2nd Grade Social Studies Bundle.  This complete unit contains

  • Rules and Laws
  • My Government
  • Oglethorpe, Tomochichi, Musgrove & Sequoyah
  • Dr. Martin Luther King (my all-time BEST seller)
  • Jackie Robinson

If you are a TpT seller, I highly reccommend you start BUNDLING products together for Big sales in record time!

What's Not to LOVE about February?

     We are getting ready for the testing season.  My kiddos have so many too many tests for their little 8 year-old brains.  We have our County Benchmark coming up that they say is for school purposes only, but always manage to pit us up against the Best schools in the county.  My littles do not have the same schema as the other children, but we preserver!  I have to build their schema on top of everything else on the curriculum map!
     After we finish Benchmarks we have the Georgia Milestone Blitz and test online this year.  We round the corner to the finish line with a SLO - Student Learning Objective test.  For third graders, they take a Reading, Math and Science tests.  I teach Math and Science so we will be teaching all the way up to the last three days of school!!!
     We are so busy in Science I thought I would share a few more of my units.
 This HEAT UNIT was a lot of fun in the classroom.  We made mini smores with toothpicks and marshmallows, teddy grahams and chocolate!  They adored that day!!!  I have put the science experiments in the unit and also listed them separately.
 The unit on rocks was a lot more in depth than I originally thought it would be.  I found a few edible science experiments and included them in the unit!  You have to engage the learner somehow, so why not through food!!!
Our unit on soil was very hands on.  I had gathered soils samples, sand and clay from all over.  We made stations around the room and really explored the different types of soil!

So check them out for your self at TpT.  I have lots of pics and so far the reviews have been great!!

Happy Science Teaching and here is hoping for the best with all of the upcoming tests!

Happy New Year 2016

I am so excited for the new year!  It is hard to believe we are half way through the school year!  I have been working hard on completing a Science Unit for 3rd graders in Georgia!  Most of them can be used for all 3rd grade curriculum, but the Habitats unit is specifically for Georgia!

The first unit is Magnets!  My students loved exploring with magnets.  
 Inside the 30+ page unit you will find:
• 2 introductory labs
• Magnetic Stations (4) – Foldable book for documentation
• 2 Interactive Notebook foldables
• What are Magnets? Take Home Booklet
• Vocabulary – Interactive Notebook Page
• Text Features – Reading Passage
• Attract/Repel quiz
• Earth is a Magnet Quiz
• Final Quiz
• I Have-Who Has vocabulary cards (18)
• Word Wall

I love this FlipBook!  It has so many good details they need to know!  My original intent was to put it in their Science Interactive notebook, but they loved reading it so much I sent them home in HW folders.

Another favorite is the Text Feature page!  It has several images to explain repel and attract.  I love incorporating ELA and Science whenever I can!!
