This week is not too school related, but there are some fun freebies at the end!

Link up and share your week with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching.

This week was productive and fun!

1. Sub binder is all set and ready to go! Whew! You forget how much stuff you do without thinking about it (especially at the end of the year!) that someone else wouldn't know how or what to do. Hopefully, my plans are clear and not too overwhelming.

2. Ethan and I were busy! We went to the zoo, caught up with some friends, and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather. We went to Belle Isle and visited the aquarium, nature zoo, conservatory, and maritime museum.

We made many trips to the it was finally warm and sunny here! We finally hit 70! Yay!

We went to the local gym and he ran and ran and tried everything out there. 

3. I finished up my IEPs...not a super fun thing to complete over break, but it was needed. We have two days to complete all 24 of our IEPs. My days are almost right away when we return so we are ready to go. 

4. Madi (I think we are going with spelling now) is growing great (5lbs 4oz)! No picture this week as she was refusing to cooperate...I think it was too early in the morning for a pic. Today my dad, Ethan, and I are heading to Lowes to finish buying the stuff for the nursery. I am 34.5 weeks right now...time is flying! Hopefully, Matt will finally have the opportunity to finish up the molding, replacing the blinds, and closet door (I have been trying to wait patiently...not working so well for me...this is one of my downfalls). 

5. Some freebies! I love Graphics from the Pond Graphics! They are so stinkin' cute! I made this fun Beep, Beep ABC Board Game with some of Mel's creations and the game can be differentiated for students in three different ways (abc id, abc sounds, beginning sound words) with three different types of recording sheets.

Have a great weekend! I am looking forward to enjoying some more 60 degree days before it goes back down to 40.  :(

I have been working on a combination of things this past weekend and here is some of the finished projects.

One of the things the other ECSE teacher and I have been wanting to change is our behavior chart. Currently, we have a color system chart,but our little ones don't understand it and the kids that struggle with behavior it is not even effective for. So we are going to try this for next year...

Behavior Chart

I am going to buy a jewelry holder clear pocket chart and put the kids pictures in the pockets and then we will earn popsicle sticks for a small prize at the end of the week. This will be easier to tweak to individualize if needed and will focus on the positive instead of the negative. 

I have finally gotten around to uploading this. It has been done for some time, but I just haven't posted it...Pom pom color matching tasks. These are perfect for the springtime and help with fine motor with the kids using tweeers to place the pom poms. 

Pom Pom Matching Tasks

Same vs. different is a really difficult concept for my kiddos. I think it is more so the language of what is same and different so these clip cards should help with that.
