Hard to believe it is already February! January flew by. I am linking up with Farly at Oh Boy 4th Grade! for the Feb. currently.
 
 
 
Listening- to fox 2 news and we are suppose to have another big storm come through MI...possibly 6-12 inches over night Tuesday to Wednesday.
 
Loving- that one of my kiddos yesterday that is challenging had a FABULOUS day yesterday! Hopefully we can do the same on Monday! 
 
Thinking- about what I can do on Wed. if we do have a snow day and to make sure to bring stuff home to do. This past Mon-Wed I was going stir crazy. Ethan is a blast to play with, but I can only handle playing 'animals' so many times in the day. I took him to the play area at the mall for a little over an hour and he just ran! So if you have any fabulous ideas that will keep an active 2 year old boy entertained for more than 10 min. (we made binoculars, played play-doh, painted) let me know! :)
 
Wanting- some warmer weather and snow to melt because I would love to just get outside and enjoy some sun and warmth.
 
Needing- Maddie's room is basicly done, except for the molding, closet door, and getting the crib assembled. I would LOVE my husband to finish this sometime soon because then I can finish organizing and setting up her room.
 
2 Truths and a Fib:
 
My favorite color is blue. I love light, bright blue.
 
I don't hate coffee...I love it. Although I am pregnant I still have a cup a day because it helps me get through the day.
 
 I did run competively at Lake Superior State University (they have lots of snow up there so I shouldn't complain). I ran cross country and track (800, 1500, and sometimes the 3000). It was some of the best four years of my life because of the fabulous friends I made. We still try to all get together once to twice a year and now that many of us are married (many to each other on the team) and having kids it is fun to see our kids playing together.
 
Have a great Saturday.  Stay warm and safe!


I am linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for a recap of the week.


It was a short week in the classroom...only two days, but we were busy!

1. Obstacle Course. Our PT and OT got together and set this up for the kids. It was a lot of fun for them and easy to set up.


2. Not school related, but some of the fun things I created on our cold days. A peg board for my craft area.

Sign for Maddie's room. I am going to add a picture of her next to the word she once she is born.
3. A great task box activity that you can get from Erin at Creating and Teaching (Bear Counting Cards).


4. This activity was a lot of fun for my kiddos! They loved finding the letters and matching them up in the play-doh.



5.

Also, I will having 20% off at my TN and TPT stores starting tomorrow through Feb. 3rd! I have a couple of new Valentine activties just posted!

 

Have a great weekend!

It is our fifth snow day. We have never had this many before and I am getting worried about how we'll make it up. Being in the house with Ethan for the past few days and not really going anywhere has made Ethan and me both restless. I am ready to be back at work and working with my kiddos. With so much time on my hands I have had the opportunity to work on some new stuff and get lots of things finished.

I just finished a new Easter unit.

Easter Time Activities on tpt and here on TN. Here is a preview




I also made some rhyming games. I going to be starting to introduce this concept to my pm class in the upcoming month. One of the games is




I printed the lady (there are 4- one for each season in the game), added velcro to the back of the lady and am ready to go! I had an old frosting container that I used for the container and I added a slit to the top for the card to be inserted into once a match is found.  



I also made a simple color file folder game to reinforce matching the colors and color words.


Now for a freebie....
Rhyming Socks Laundry Freebie. I made a 'washer' (tissue box, white paint, googly eyes) and cut out some socks on my cricut. Then, I added pictures of rhyming words to the back. I think I am going to use this during the spring when we read Mrs. Wishy Washy. The original idea came from








Last but not least the giveaway. You can win my new Easter Time Fun Activities, There was a Lady Who Swallowed Rhyming Game, and Build a Color Cupcake game by leaving your e-mail in the comments section. I will come back tomorrow and draw a winner. Have a great Tuesday!

Well, this past weekend since it was snowing like crazy again and the roads were awful for travelling Ethan and I made some fun things for my classroom. It is fun now that he can actually do the activities that I make for my kiddos. It is also fun because some of the things that confuse him I know will definitely confuse my little ones and I can make changes to it so that doesn't happen.

One of the things we made was super easy! You need an Altoid Box and Magnetic letters or numbers. I actually used the wax numbers that I shared on Friday when making the play-doh dig containers.



I used the play-doh dig mat from Shuna at Pocket Full of Kinders. (She had lots of cute freebies!). Ethan opened the box up and matched the numbers to the mat. It amazes me how quickly he catches on to doing these activities. He doesn't really know the numbers (except 3 and 6), but he can differentiate them, which is great to see.



Non-school related, we made this Valentine Day wreath. I had the ribbon and the yarn wreath. All I had to buy was the felt hearts and Ethan helped me stick them on too. It is simple, but turned out cute.





Have a great week and stay warm!
