My students were working on time this week. We made a.m. and p.m. books. This is from my unit on time. Click the picture if you would like to see it.
This is the wall outside my classroom. I wanted to get something up quickly. Now I don't have to worry about it for awhile. The 2017 book and snowmen were bought on TPT. The rules poster is from my packet on review the rule. I am happy about how my wall looks. Sometimes I act like a perfectionist.
We made these books about Martin Luther King Jr. We have Monday off to celebrate his birthday. Three day weekend!
Krispy kreme doughnuts opened a store by us on Tuesday. The line has been crazy every day. My daughter and I decided to wait in the car line. We waited over an hour to get some donuts. Here is a picture of the line to go inside.
Here is something that you may be able to use in your class. It is a great review for Valentine's Day. It is also free!
Click on the picture to get it. If you get it, please leave me some feedback. Also, you can follow me on TPT by clicking on the follow me icon. I am trying to get to 100. Then I plan on doing a giveaway. Thanks!

First week back and we have been doing all kinds of things. We started back on Wednesday. It was kind of nice having a short week! We started with reviewing the rules. I posted about my product I made earlier this week. Here is a picture of the students working on one of the sheets.
Today we worked on silent letters. First we watched a You Tube video on silent letters. Then we read Silent Letter Loud and Clear by Robin Pulver. Then we listed words with silent letters and circled the silent letters. Then I had the students do an activity with silent letters. It is from my unit silent letters. Next week they will have a center that is from my unit to reinforce their learning.
We have been building our stamina back after Christmas break. Here are my students reading their books. I wish I had more places for them to sit. I do have a small carpet and a small table with chairs. Do you have any cheap suggestions for things to sit on?
My students love playing word wall races. Two students each take half of the word wall words. Then the first person to say all the words wins and gets to pick their next opponent. We have to be careful not to bang on the wall so, we don't disturb the other second grade.
This is a picture of one of my cats. My daughter started an Instagram account for the cats. Right now they have more followers than I do. lol

It was our first day back. It was hard getting up in the morning. My daughter had a fit. She doesn't go back till Tuesday, Jan. 10. I had to take her to the neighbors at 7 a.m. I was off at school and wrote today was Monday, January 4, 2016. The kids made sure I new my mistake. Here are some pictures of the kids working on a paper from my review the rules packet. Click here if you would like to see the packet.

I know that many of us are heading back to school soon. I go back tomorrow. Christmas break went very fast! We are starting in the middle of the week. I was trying to figure out what to start in the middle of the week. I decided to create a small packet that goes with reviewing rules and procedures. Click here if you would like to check it out.
