Five for Friday

It's Friday! Time for...

This has been one loooooong week! Anyone with me?
 Seating Chart

I finally managed to get my seating chart assembled during conference week right before Thanksgiving.

I know, I know...we've been in school for over 60 days and I hadn't gotten it done yet!

I use small laminated pictures of my kids and ticky tack to assemble my chart.

Here are my tables, color coded and numbered to match my room

Small pictures of students with their name

Seating Chart!

When I need to move someone, I just move their picture to their new spot.

This chart is super handy for guest teachers since I don't have name tags on my tables.

 Bright spot of my week

Tuesday morning I came to work and found some goodies awaiting me!



Thirty One order
And check out my brother's Christmas present
Can you see the resemblance? Talk about man's best friend! Hope he likes it!
Christmas time

We've kicked off the holiday season with light art.

This idea originally came from my teammate. You can see hers and read her post {here}. 

I decided to use glitter and black paper instead of white paper and black marker.

I love the way they came out!

The kids were so quiet painting their light bulbs! Maybe I needed to do this project all week long! LOL!

Super E fun!

We were introduced to Super E

I was so excited to hear all of the Oohs and Aahs as I introduced him. It's the little things that make this job so rewarding.

I wish I would have video taped their expressions when Super E flew in to change the vowel sounds of the words.  PRICELESS!


Math Strategies

We have been reviewing addition and subtraction this week.

 I have been using my addition and subtraction strategy posters to aide in the process.

These are a few of the ones we reviewed this week.
If you would like to win a set of my addition and subtraction posters, leave a comment with your email. I'll pick three or four or maybe even more on Sun.

I will leave you with this...kinda sums up my relationship with the gym this week since the weather has been so frigid {Suppose to be 10 - 20 below tonight...BRRRRR}!
