It’s been such a looong time since I’ve blogged. 97 days or 3 months and 5 days to be exact. 😂
After Halloween, the holidays just came so fast and furious that it’s really been a whirlwind since then. If you would like to see what I have been up to, please connect with me on my Instagram! I share snip bits daily, and would love to connect with you!
Ok…. so back to blogging… lol… As part of my New Year’s Resolutions to blog more often, I am linking up with my friend Megan from Mrs. Wheeler to bring to you my Saturday Six, a rundown of six things from my week!
To celebrate Dr. King’s birthday, my class read about his life and work and used these adorable, FREE banners from Playdough to Plato
to share our own dreams for our country and world. While we had off for the Holiday, I’m so glad that these banners are handing in our classroom to remind us to keep Dr. King’s dream alive!
As a quick activity to tie asking literal questions to text, I encouraged my students to ask questions before, during, and after reading about Dr. King. We recorded the questions on sticky notes, then went back and answered them on pink stickies that were placed directly underneath of the questions. The kids loved completing the anchor chart together, and since we used stickies, I will be able to reuse this anchor chart for next year! Can we say, “SCORE?!!!!” 🙂
Since Tuesday was a super cold day, I had to use my Jeans Pass a wear my new super comfy and warm sweatshirt from The Wright Stuff Chics
. Jeans plus a cute teacher tee made the day back from a 3-day weekend PERFECTO!
I’m a month ahead, but my son’s Kindergarten teacher, who is also my #TeacherBestie, and I are planning to do a fun Chinese/Lunar New Year STEM Challenge together. Therefore, I have been prepping for all the lessons on the holiday that we will need to teacher beforehand. Pulling out the books and looking through my files made me so excited as the holiday hits directly HOME for me! Plus I get to celebrate it with my son and his Kindergarten class this year! You can check out this Chinese Zodiac, craftivities, and more from my newly UPDATED Chinese New Year Packet

Since we’re half way through the year, it’s that time when I’m almost out of color dry erase markers. But then!!!! One of them sent this in for me! A brand new pack so pretty that I had to pull out my book stand! 😂🌈 I seriously have been blessed with such amazing parents in my classroom!
For many classrooms around the country, the countdown to 100th Day of School has officially begun! In years past, I have celebrated by having students dressed as 100 years old. But honestly, my most favorite activity is when my students got to choose 100 items of something and create their own 100th-Day t-shirt! Look at some of the examples below! Their creativity really blew me away!!!
To add more FUN with instruction to your 100th Day celebrations, check out these interactive and engaging activities below that are from my 100th Day of School Packet
. It has both math and literacy activities that are perfect for the entire day!
The weather was finally nice enough outside on Saturday that we finally got to go to the local library to read some books and then went home to enjoy our new spa! Let’s just say, some of us were more than SUPER EXCITED! 🙂
