Somebody wonderful out there had the great idea to have the kiddos walk around and find a certain colored turkey and write the word on it on their recording sheet. (If this is you please leave a comment below!)I took her idea and adapted it to gingerbread men. Hope this is something you can use!

Here are a few more pics from October and Nov. Someday I will have time to keep things updated.... someday.
Here we go:
|These number circle maps are from Fran at Kindergarten Crayons. The kids loved making these!|
|Our roll/color a monster game. This one is one I made and can be found for free on this blog.|
|I pinned this off pinterest somewhere. The kids helped make it and then made their own.|
|50s day patterns. Anyone remember who made this?|
|Pics of selves on 50s day.|
|Check out her blowing bubble gum on the 50th day!|
|We had root beer floats and graphed whether or not the ice cream would sink or float.|
|graphing our bubble blowing.|
|Here is our map of Sarah Morton's day.|

Well, here it is. The post that will include everything I have been doing from the get-go. Who knew that I would be spending my nights re-working everything in order to ensure success for these kiddos? It has been a lot of work and my blog has had to take a back seat to everything - but we will get there! (Just FYI, I said that with gusto and emphasis! I really am trying to convince myself!) Anyhoo... on to the pics. Now a good teacher would have remembered where she got ideas from, but I am sure I won't remember who or where. So, if something looks familiar to you and you want to claim yourself as giving me inspiration please just leave me a comment. I would rather know and let the world know how great you are!
I have more, but I am having trouble uploading pics. I will post again soon when I figure out what is going on!
|Name station - matching clothes pins to the letters in student's names.|
|Another name station - using bingo daubers to outline name.|
|Glitter webs, spiders from using our handprints, and our predictable sentences glued on.|
|Our boy/girl graph. As of right now I have 13 boys and 7 girls.|
|Our apple tree graph. I have used this one for some time now. It is looking a little worn. I may have to make a new one next year!|
|Our Alpha-bats. This was done during our bat unit. Each child had a bat sent home with a letter of the alphabet on it. They were to find items from magazines etc.. that go with that letter to glue on it.|
|Our pumpkin life cycle page. This one is mine. Somehow I missed getting a pic of a student one.|
|Found these on the internet somewhere (Kim Adsit?) and made one for each number up to 10. The kids loved making these charts!|

My darlings have got me beat. They are a handful and I feel like I have no time to do anything but put out fires! If only they would install a sprinkler system to deal with all these little fires.... I might actually get to be teacher Tessa instead of fireman Tessa! That being said, there are a few kiddos making great progress, several making good progress and a couple more making
slow steady progress. Never-mind that it is like pulling a car threw the mud just by using a rope and your teeth - it is still progress. I just take a few thousand deep breaths and keep moving forward. Anyhoo, I hope ya'll are still with me. I plan to take a little time to update this here blog soon. I have lots of pictures and ideas to share. They may be pics of apples and pumpkins - but better late than never! I hope to share some cute gingerbread man stuff soon too! See you soon!
