Saturday 6 January 6

Hi, friends, and welcome to the very first "Sunday 6!"  I am super excited to get this going!  If you're a teacher/parent, hopefully you'll get some new ideas from this linky.  If you are a blogger, I'd love to have you link up!  Just be sure to link back to my blog and include the "Sunday 6" images!  You can grab them below and save them to your computer so that you have them each week!

This week is our first week back after winter break!  It's also the start of the 3rd quarter.  I start each quarter with fresh checklists in my grade binder.  Once I complete report cards, I file the prior quarter's grades and make new checklists.  I LOVE these checklists from Ladybug Teacher Files.  I've been using them for a few years.  I like how clean the checklists look and I also like that she's included an editable option so I can change the headers for the subjects at the top.  How do you keep track of grades?  We are obviously still pencil/paper in my district!

This past week has been FREEZING cold!  We were in California for Christmas and it was nice and mild...70-75 degrees.  We came back to a lot of snow and -0 temps!  Brrr!!!  I've had the hot cocoa pitcher on repeat!  I got this at Williams Sonoma many years ago.  I love it because it has a battery-operated blender inside the lid!  I just add warm milk and cocoa and push the button.  The lid whisks the cocoa and milk together making the most delicious hot chocolate!  I can't find it online anymore, but I also have the little hand mixer shown below, and it works well, too!  

Before Christmas, I decided to break apart a couple things from my Guided Reading Bundle to make them more affordable and available for those who don't need the entire bundle.  These are my "Fluency Sentences" and I have them in a CvC Edition as well as a Blends Edition.  Click each cover below to check them out.  These are great to use for RTI, Guided Reading, or to send home for extra practice.  

Who doesn't love a fresh new pack of Sharpies?  I just filled up my mug with a new set from Christmas.  P.S. I love this mug!  It is from Franchesca's!  

We had a crazy week back!  We were off for the holiday Monday, had a snow day Tuesday, a 2-hour delay Wednesday and Thursday, and a snow day Friday!  Needless to say, I didn't get much done at school, other than reviewing rules/expectations and a few other things.  The extra long break was nice, but next week is going to be brutal--5 full days!  Hahaha!  

Despite the crazy schedule, I did manage to introduce new centers this New Years Literacy Centers.  The kids had a lot of fun completing these!  For a detailed post about how I set up and manage centers, click HERE.  To grab my New Years Centers pack, click the cover below.

Love your Christmas picture! I've never heard of a hot cocoa pitcher like that but it sounds pretty cool. Sounds like your students are enjoying your New Year's center activities- they look like fun! And I think I need your blogging mug! ;) Thank you for inviting me to link up with you!
