I am linking up with Farley over at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the February Currently.

After all the weird weather we have had lately (record lows, record highs, and record rain - all within 10 days!) I am loving the mid 70's and sunshine today.

I have so many things running around crowding in my brain that I want to do with my class, at home, and on my blog, that I could literally sit at this computer 24/7 for about a month and still not get it all done!

My "baby" girl is turning 14 this week!
She is growing into quite the young lady, and I am so proud of her!
I just wish she wouldn't grow up quite so fast!

Pet Peeves
In my classroom, the kids know that lying, stealing, and cheating are my 3 BIG no no's.
I just have zero tolerance for that nonsense.
As for life in general, I get irked by grammatical errors on signage, publications, and such, especially those that come from our district office.  
Doesn't anyone proofread any more?
I am the one who always finds typos and errors in the books I read.

So what are you CURRENTLY up to?

Five For Friday


5 Random things from my classroom this week...

1.  I am loving making books with my kiddos, especially since I started using Snapfish to publish them!

We did the first one at Christmas time - The Best Part of Me
Read about it here.

And this one we did at the end of our MLK unit.
Read about it here.

They have turned out so much better than I expected!

We are working on a new one to go along with the book, A my name is Alice.

I made this template to go along with the book.

Idea from Suzanne at Krazy Town.

You can get it on sale on Sunday!

2.  I am in love with anchor charts!  We are currently working on nonfiction text features.
Here are a few from this week...

3.  Non fiction text features scavenger hunt with a foldable.  We made these foldables

using this freebie file from Amy's SMART Designs
Nonfiction Text Features Flipbook
and went on a text features scavenger hunt.

4.  Active participation in math using angle sticks.
Got this idea from pinterest...

5.  And finally, just for me, I saw this pin on Pinterest
Valentines Day Plaid
and wanted that for my nails!
Here's what mine look like...

  2. I love the idea of using Snapfish to create classroom books!! I might need to try that! And I have sooo many things I want to blog about but feel I don't have the time either. Good thing I have a vacation coming up!

  3. Hi! I found your blog through Farley's currently. I love anchor charts too, I just never find the time to actually get the final copy up on the wall. I also like your class books using Snapfish. That will be next on my 1,000 task long to-do list. I hope you don't mind, I'm "borrowing" your foldable idea.

    Best Wishes!

  4. Sara, be careful! The book making is addicting!

    Mrs. J, Borrow away! That's why I share!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I really enjoyed reading your posts - I found you thru Farley :) I taught 4th grade for 8 years before moving lower to 2nd (not by choice, but loving it now!).

    Love all your nonfiction things! We are spending 2nd semester on nonfiction, and I am always looking for new ideas for my kiddos!

    Please feel free to come visit me over at my blog!

  6. Oh my goodness, I love your nails!!! Haha. If I tried that, my left hand would look fabulous...and my right hand would look like I let one of my firsties do it :)

  7. Have no fear Cait! I didn't do them myself. I took the pic to my nail girl and she did them. I can't even paint my own nails!

  8. Those books look fantastic! The nonfiction text features are great too. Already pinned the anchor charts. I love anchor charts too! :)
