Gingerbread Man Read/Write the room freebie

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!

Sooooo Random - part 2

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.

Here is our map on Pilgrims and Native Americans.
We made this chart together then they made the Mayflower boats and added a list of items the Pilgrims brought with them.
Native American on the other.
Turkey on one side.
That's it for now.  Hopefully I'll have some Owl stuff and gingerbread stuff to share later on this month.


Sooooooo Random

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!

First up...

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!
I have more, but I am having trouble uploading pics.  I will post again soon when I figure out what is going on!

It is gonna be THAT year.

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!
