Sunday 6 March 18

 Welcome to this week's Sunday 6, where I share 6 random things from my week.  You are welcome to link up at the bottom of this post with your own blog post.  Just be sure to use my "Sunday 6" images!  Have a great week!
 On Tuesday I had to attend a work day to get materials ready for our upcoming unit in Reading.  It was pretty boring but I was able to get Starbucks AND go out for lunch so....

We began non-standard measurement last week.  The kids had fun working through some activities in Miss Giraffe's Measurement Unit.  They also LOVED measuring one another (and me) with Unifix cubes!

I created my own Amazon Store!  This is where I will slowly be adding all of my favorite resources for first grade and teaching!  You can check out my store by clicking HERE.  When you shop from it, a small percentage goes to me which helps me get materials for my classroom.   Sadly, I have to use my own money for everything I buy for my room.  We do not have a PTO or get any money from our principal or district.  I am excited to be earning little extra from this new Amazon shop!

We've been working on -nk and -ng glued sounds in Phonics.  Below are a few activities/centers that we did last week!  Click the cover picture to check this new resource out for yourself!!

We did some fun St. Patrick's Day activities throughout the week.  The class loved playing "I Have, Who Has: St. Patty's Day Edition!"  Check it out HERE.  I have a bundle of all of these games in my store!  Click below to check it out.  It's a fun and quick game to incorporate into your Morning Meeting!

We made Shamrock Floats on Friday!  This is always a lot of fun!  Check them out HERE.

Mr. Wheeler and I went to see Alan Jackson on Friday!  He is so good and has SO many hit songs!  On Saturday, we went out with friends for St. Patrick's Day.  We went to the shooting range and to dinner.  We had to have a green beer while out!

Sunday 6 March 11

 Hi!  Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone's weekend has been fantastic so far!  I am back for another "Sunday 6."  Remember that you can link up your post as long as you use my provided images and link back to me.  Just share 6 random things about your week!
 Last week for centers I added Roll and Trace as one activity.  This was the first time this year we've done it.  The kids LOVED IT!  "Best center ever, " they said!  I love that I can switch out the words and have a matching recording sheet every time.  Click below to grab it.  It's the Fry's First 100 sight words.

I put together some fun Skittles bags for my kids this weekend.  I will be giving them out on Friday for a little St. Patty's day treat!  Click HERE for the free tag!!!

Last night we went out with my bestie from school and her hubby!  We went to the same brewery Mr. Wheeler and I visited last weekend!  We really like it.

On Friday, we always do art.  This past Friday we made one of my favorite projects: tissue paper rainbows!  I get the tissue off Amazon (link below).  I just discovered you could buy pre-cut tissue last year after years of cutting my own squares!!!!  Hello, time saver!  I really enjoy keeping these up all spring.  They are so cheerful!  Make or find a rainbow template, have your kids color it accordingly first, and add tissue!  Great fine motor practice.

I got this sweet note on Friday.  It made my day!

After going back and forth 4 times and some unforeseen circumstance, Mr. Wheeler and I are going to Florida for spring break!  We finalized it Friday!  Woo Hoo!  We've been going down there for the past 13 spring breaks!  I was sad when I thought we wouldn't get to go!  Just a few weeks until we go!!  When is your break?

Fluency Strips

These Fluency Strips have been a big hit in my Guided Reading Bundle.  I have many requests to break these apart from the bundle and sell them on their own.  Here you go!  Use them for guided reading, early finishers, RTI, parent volunteers, home for extra practice, you name it!  The possibilities are limitless.  I am adding digraphs and long vowels for these soon...I have had several requests!  Stay tuned!!!
