All Things Fall!!

I think that I should be whipped for waiting this long to post.  Blogging was taking up LOTS of my time last year and I promised myself to slack off a little and well..... I did a pretty good job.  The purpose of my blog is not have teachers purchase products from our TPT page.  It's just to provide teachers with ideas in which students can grow as learners, thinkers, readers, and writers, as well as being fun for teachers.  So with all of that said... Here are a few ideas for fall.  You will notice that we are beginning to allow the children to write some initial sounds in words.  The letters you see are the letters/sounds that we have covered thus far in the school year :) If you would like a copy of the graphic organizers used, just email me and I will be HAPPY to email it to you!

Jan Brett Author Study..

This was SO much fun for the kids and for me!  By the time we read the third book, the children were able to tell me who the author was and a few characteristics of her books.  We read several but the ones I am posting are Hedgie's Surprise, The Three Snow Bears, The Mitten and The Hat.

All Things Winter

We've had a TERRIBLE ice storm and have missed the past two days are we are missing tomorrow as well.  It looks like snow, but it's NOT!!  I slipped on the ice and fell right on my shoulder and knee and laughed at first until I realized I was really hurt!!  Bruises, sharp pain, etc.  We are not used to this kind of weather in the Florida Panhandle for sure!!
I am posting LOTS of pictures.  All have to do with winter/snowmen,100th day, bears/Polar Bears and penguins
