Currently & A Sale!

Hey friends!

I have not been very good about blogging lately-I promise to be better!
It was a rough January around my house. First, my little dude was sick with a double ear infection & double pink eye. Then right after, I got sick with the flu, a sinus infection, and laryngitis. It was not fun. I was out of school for almost a full week-which is not like me at all. I hate taking sick days! But now, I think we are all back on track!

I am joining in with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for a February Currently!
Pageant Title-I give a lot of dirty looks...some of them are intentional & some of them are not. I tend to have "resting bitch face" and I can't help it!
We are getting a lot of snow this weekend. They are predicting 7-9 inches, but I'm hoping they are wrong. I really don't like snow. We took my little guy out in it for the first time today...he doesn't like it either :)

ALSO, I have a sale running in my store this weekend. 20% off everything!! :)

I am also joining in with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday (...or Sunday?).
We love it. I personally like the Maximo Yoga sessions. The kids like some of the sillier ones-Run Like the Kitty & Ninja Training. You should check it out if you haven't already!

Peer Editing.
The kids have been working on non-fiction "all about" books for a few weeks. This week, they learned how to work in partnerships to help make their books even better. It is going well!

Fact Families.
We have been working on fact families or related facts. On this day, I made a bunch of fact family triangles and cut them apart different ways (some had zig zag cuts, some had curvy cuts, some had straight cuts). Each kid was given a piece and they had to find their fact family members. After they found them and made their triangle, they wrote equations to match their family.

Valentine Penguin Craft.
We started a non-fiction penguin study this week and the students have been helping to chart all of the things they have learned so far! Our craft on Friday was a mixture of penguins & Valentine's Day (the parts of the penguins that look like hearts). They turned out super cute!

This is SO not teaching related. But seriously, these things are delicious. I highly recommend you try them! I got them at Walmart.

Have a great rest of your weekend!! :)


  1. hahaha!! I too can have a cranky look when I don't intend too. I also have a really hard time not showing my emotions on my face. I am always trying to get that under control! :) I wish it would snow a bit here! Not a ton, because I don't want to have to add on to the school year, but a snow day or two would be nice! So sorry you were so sick. I can't stand taking sick days - sub plans are the worst! I had bronchitis a few weeks back and was out a bit too. Hopefully the sickness will be all done now! Happy February!

  2. I love the picture of your kiddo! He was actually why I clicked on your link because the picture made me laugh!
    A teacher the other day asked me about Go Noodle and I had NO CLUE what she was talking about. Thank you for sharing this link and the picture! Perfect timing!

  3. I tried to get my hubby to put those yummy chips in the cart the other day...needless to say I still am anxious to try them.

    I need to check out go noodle. Everyone has been talking about it, but I do not know if it would work for my middles.

    Have a great week!
