Serapes, Vocabulary Parade and What Nots

Hey everybody! Long time no blog. I know I’ve been MIA but that’s what a sinus infection while preparing for the end of school will do to a gal.
I’ve got a few things to share as far as the haps in my class. BTW yesterday was the last day for students…today was my last day. I’m Living My Life Like It’s Golden…holla if ya love Jill Scott. Her Storytellers episode on VH1…da bomb!

We have a wonderful Spanish teacher who made Serapes with our students. Here’s my class styling and profiling. Don’t they look good.

Every year our second grade teachers put on a Vocabulary Parade…from this book…

I look forward to it every year. Here are a few pics.

Here are a few pictures from Math Stations this past week.
Students use the dice tool and add ten to the number rolled. Then they get to cover that number.

Smile for the Camera

I’m probably showing my age, but does anybody else remember that song “Peg” by Steely Dan?? I love Steely Dan..”Peg.. it will come back to you…when the shudder falls…. you see it only…it’s your favorite foreign movie.”  Maybe I need to add that to my blogging music playlist. I’m loving the addition of the Beastie Boys. I can’t help it..I’m a child of the eighties. If you can’t tell already, I love music!

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week I’m attempting to do the same thing I did last year and give my wonderful awesome followers a freebie everyday this week.

This is a game I created for finding missing numbers. The students match the pictures to the missing number cameras. There isn’t a recording sheet, my students wrote down the answers in their math journals, or they could use a dry erase board. Click below if you’d like a copy. Remember to leave some feedback…please, or follow me. I hope you find this useful.
I’m still loving my newly fashioned blog. I smile every time I see it. SmileHope you all had a great Monday.
