Sunday 6 April 29

Happy Sunday!  Hope you have had a wonderful weekend!  I'm back for another "Sunday 6."  Remember that you can participate in Sunday 6  by writing up your own blog post, using my provided images, and linking up!  Have a great week!
I picked up an inflatable tic-tac-toe board from Target Dollar Spot and used it as one of my literacy centers last week.  It was a hit for sure!  I paired it with my Fry's First 100 Sight Word Flashcards.  To play, kids selected 9 words to put into the board.  Then, before they took their turn, they had to read the word and put it into a sentence (orally).  Each round, they replaced the words.  So easy and so fun!  I'm sure I will be putting this center out again in a few weeks!

The hallway outside my room need a little re-vamp.  I had our St. Patrick's Day rainbows up and had intended to leave them up all year, but I was getting sick of them.  We made these spring bugs from Doodle Bugs Teaching.  I love how each one turned out so differently!

We've been reviewing verbs in Reading.  I love the posters included in my Verbs pack!  So handy and a great visual for kids to remember the tenses.  Click below to check the posters out.

Our house was built in 1942.  It's a very small (1,100 sq. ft.) Cape Cod home.  I'm obsessed with it!  We have lived in it for 12 years, and I have had to become very creative with storage solutions because there isn't a lot of storage!  Our lower cabinets are giant black holes!  Deep and no shelves.  When we were at Lowe's last weekend, we bit the bullet and got soft-close wire baskets!  Hooray for shelves!  I have never been so excited to empty the dishwasher!  Best investment ever.  Sure wish we would have done this 12 years ago!

I was at Michael's shopping yesterday and came across this 48 pack of pencils!  It was just $5.00!  These would make great end of the year gifts.  However, my treasure box is looking sparse, so I think I'll be putting them inside of it.

Speaking of end of the year gifts.........the year is about over for us!  24 days!  PTL!  What a year it's been!  I always plan way ahead for holidays, and so it's no surprise that I'm thinking about what to give my kids at the end of the year.  Last year I did these fun water bottles with their names.  I had to purchase their names from someone who had a Cricut.  I'm not sure what I'll do this year.  I'm sure I'll come up with an idea soon!  What do you give your kids?  Comment below and let me know!
