Trashy Crafter Lanyard + Discount
Hi all! I'm dropping by today to share one of my newest loves. If you know me, you know that I love books. I am a bit of a book hoarder. I just moved over spring break and I noticed that most of my boxes were books. I just can't stop myself from buying new ...

Five for Friday (on Saturday)
I'm linking up with Kacey at Doodle Bugs Teaching for her weekly "Five for Friday" linky  party. It was so good to go back to school again this week. We missed two weeks of school because of snow and ice. Since this week was Read Across America week, we pra...

Week in Review
This past Monday was our 100th day of school. Like I told you before, I never have made this a big deal in 2nd grade but this year I decided to make it a fun day. I was really inspired by Cara Carroll's ideas for the 100th day. For our 100th day, I did have...

All About MLK
I have a confession to make. I have barely taught any science or social studies this year. Since it is no longer part of our schedule at school, I told myself that I would still teach it during the day. Well, that really hasn't happened and I'm kinda mad at...

Spotlight on Christmas Freebies
Happy Sunday! I'm so glad that this is the last Sunday that I will have the Sunday blues for a few weeks.  It's been a rough few weeks at my school. One could never imagine the tragedy of two buses wrecking and causing so much devastation. Thank you to ever...

Visual Plans for November 10th
I'm back with my visual plans for the week. I had to take a little break because I have been having some health issues. I have had major shoulder pain since the end of June and nothing that I've done (therapy, rest, ice, cortisone shot) would help. A few we...

Bright Idea for Math Facts
This year, my students are working really hard to master their math facts. Each day, they take a 45 second test on a certain set of facts like +1, +2, etc.. If they pass the test, they get to move on to a new test for the next day.  To make this easier for ...

Creating a Classroom Economy (Freebie)
Teaching money in 2nd grade is not my favorite thing to do. My students often don't recognize the coins and we are supposed to teach them to count above a dollar in one to two weeks. Fairly impossible for some of them. So, I decided to implement a classroom...

A Peek at My Week: Snow
Well, I'm back. I'm not sure how winter break went by so fast but the first week back to school kicked my butt. I spent the last week of vacation in Jacksonville watching my Tennessee Vols play in their bowl game. So fun but I was not ready to go back to sc...
