I have several things in my wish list. . . Have you got yours started yet? You better get to looking. . . there's a lot of good stuff out there.
But then it hit me!
Right between the eyes. . .
When am I going to SHOP?
I have to teach all day Monday. . . .
And Tuesday. . . .
And I only have one break that is 25 minutes long (other than lunch)
But I can't shop during lunch, . . . Oh woe is me. . . I've scheduled a parent conference on both days at lunch time.
And I have parent conferences on both nights until about 7:00. . .
What have I done?
Maybe I'll get up at 5:00 am just to get this done.
How long will it take me? Does anyone know?
I'll just have to cross my fingers, talk fast to the parents, eat fast during lunch and maybe I can get this all in.
Where there's a will, there's a way!
I have fallen in love with The 3AM Teacher's graphics. Have you seen them? She is so creative, and she is just as nice as she is talented. I'm a huge DJ Inker Fan, (They are having a 25% sale right now too!)
but I'm being easily swayed to other creative artists.
So I took some of her snowy back grounds and made some story problems for my students. They just don't get story problems. They can't remember the magic words that tell them whether to add of subtract. I do have all the wonderful posters all over my room that share those magic words. But for some kids it just takes them much more practice.
So my newest activity is Snowy Story Problems. The student reads the story problem, then decides which letter matches the number model they will need to find the answer. There is a recording sheet and an answer key if you want to put this into a center. It also would work well in a small group with an adult supervising it.
You'll find them in my TPT Store and if you grab them on Monday, you'll get them even cheaper. So add them to your wish list if you like them. And I hope you will.
Here are some more blogs to check out.
Each of them are putting their things on sale!
