We have been having so much fun learning about polar animal characteristics and how they adapt to their environment. I like to pose the question, how to polar animals stay warm? One thing I love to do to show this is the blubber experiment. Have you ever tried this? It’s a simulation of what it feels […]
Hello there, happy day to you! I wanted to share some things we are working on this week. But before I get to that I want to remind everyone to step away from distractions(TV, phone, computers, etc) and give your loved ones a hug. I had a hard time going to school and letting my […]
As we wrap up parent conferences it is already time to begin thinking about life after Thanksgiving break. I try to keep my students engaged as long as possible, but the holiday season is distracting enough. I made this math set called reindeer games. There a lot of activities for my kids to work on.

The math tubs always have a variety of activities that provide spiral review for my class. One of their favorites are the find, tally and graph activities.
Well, I did it! I have officially opened a TPT and Teacher’s Notebook store. I have grown to love getting products from there and decided contribute. There is such a wealth of ideas out there. I feel like I need an assistant just to search for ideas on TPT, Teachers Notebook and Pinterest. If I […]
