Crazy Sock Day!

This week we are celebrating Read Across America with a week full of fun! We were out yesterday for sickness so we didn't get to have our pajama day. Today we read the book Fox in Socks and completed some fun activities to go along with this book. Here are some highlights from our crazy sock day!

We wore crazy socks...

We talked about what synonyms are and wrote pairs of synonyms.. everyone didn't get finished so I will have to add the rest tomorrow. I got this cute idea from Mrs. Terhune's blog.

Let's Celebrate Reading!

Hey, hey! Well blog friends, schools were closed today (and also will be on Monday) in my district due to illness. So I've enjoyed a nice day at home with Dexter dog. I've been working on a few things today for school and planning for next week. I guess even when your off the wheels never stop turning! ha  Anyways, next week we will be celebrating Read Across America week in our first grade classroom. We will be reading several Dr. you know who books and completing crafts and activities that go along with those books. I am also having a fun dress up day each day. I have done this the past few years and the kids always enjoy it. If you are looking for some fun craftivities to complete during Read Across America week or in the month of March, I just uploaded a pattern pack called Let's Celebrate Reading! {A Craftivity Pack for March}. This pack includes 9 character patterns for favorite book characters from books that are read during Read Across America week. If you previously purchased my cat who shall remain nameless and friends unit or pattern pack then you do not need to purchase this pack. But do go back and re-download the file because it has been updated! :)
You can check out some of my Dr. you know who fun and crafts from last year HERE and HERE. :)

Congrats to Jenn! Check your email. :)

We Go Together Like Cookies and Milk

Just popping in to share with you what I'm giving my little cuties for Valentine's Day. I saw the cutest cookies and milk Valentine idea on Pinterest and decided to recreate it. 

I found the heart shaped straws at Hobby Lobby... 25 for $5.99 and they were 30% off! I got the cookies at the Dollar Tree and the clear bags at Target.

I loved The Teacher Wife's too cute football prediction display she made last year and knew I had to purchase Teri's cutie patootie football craftivity for my little sweeties to make too. We talked about making predictions and then completed a couple of activities. With the exception of two, my class thinks the 49ers will win. I loved hearing them chat with their friends and tell why they thought they would win. One little boy said "49ers all the way baby!" hahaha Every time a student would go add their football to the chart they would ooh and aww and oooh baby it! ha Kids say the funnies things! :)
