Have you heard?

Hiya Peeps

Shuna here

I recently just discovered the coolest thing since

well at least to me that is!

I am constantly looking for cool sites that I can use to engage my kiddos.

I like  to have a bunch of different activities when my kiddos learn about word families 

So in my search for an interactive lesson on word families I came across

Ms. Jessica's TpT shop

She has these super cool word family thingys

I clicked on one and it lead me to a site called prezi

Have you heard about

It is awesome

Here is one that Ms. Jessica has in her shop for free

She has lots of others ones too including this one that we used last week

Not all of them have video are sound but they provide good teaching points for instruction

You can find almost any skill that you need!

For Free

Which makes it even better

Hop on over and check it out!


Have you seen this awesomeness

A pep talk from a kid!

Peace out peeps

Just wanted to stop in and share some a tidbit of news

The lifecycle of a snowman

This is way cool and we will be doing this next week!

Click the picture to find out how to do this super cool science project and help your littles explore states of matter.

Anyhoo we have been learning about addition/subtraction

First we learned all about the important words in addition/subtraction problems and how those words let us know if we are doing and addition problem or subtraction problem. 

Then we learned different strategies for how to add/subtract

*We have learned to used a number line
*Ten Frames
*Counting Forward and Backwards 
* and to put the larger number in our head and take away or add the smaller number

The little buggers are doing so well with addition and subtraction we have moved on to place value and two digit addition and subtraction

Here is a vid we used to learn to add/subtract

You can find some free addition smartboard files here 
Subtraction files here 

Here is another fun game that we used

I created a simple little review for my littles

It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Winter!

Hiya Peepers

Shuna here

So if you read my post yesterday you know that winter has been giving me the blues. 

I love love love the winter time! In fact I am a winter baby so I have an affinity for cold weather

The last 3 days has me rethinking my love affair with winter

I don't know what the heck is going on with our weather but I don't like it one bit

It is sucking face

It is 35 degrees at the moment and the rain is freezing

Nothing like standing outside with freezing rain hitting you in the face

Good times, peeps, good times


It is starting to look like winter in my classroom

Check out our cute snow globes that we made using tear art!

The kiddos loved them and they need the fine motor practice

They are so adorbs! 

One of the things that we have been focusing on this week is behavior. The kiddos got to enjoy two weeks at home pretty much flying free so when they came back to school it took them awhile to get back in the swing of things. 

I bought these cupcakes from Wally World during back to school time and I never used them.

So when we came back to school I pulled these bad boys out and put them to work. 

I use the cupcakes for individual behavior and I also use the cute table points for each table.

You can pick up the Table Points from Lori for the 

Since the kiddos have been working hard on their behavior for the last week and it has been so freakin cold and wet we decided to make some cocoa.

YUM just what we needed

That is all peepers 

I am linking up with Denise from Sunny Days

for her show and tell linky

Hop on over to check out some fun winter ideas

Peace Out Peeps

Monday Mash Up { A Hodge Podge of Totally Random Things}

Hiya Peeps

Shuna here

I hope your Monday has been better than mine.

It has been raining all day. I do not like rain

I do not like rain at all

Especially when the rain is of the freezing type

Dismissal was horrible

30+ minutes standing outside under a breezeway in freezing rain with a dress, tights, and rainboots on was not fun!

Oh did I forget to mention that it is a breezy 34 degrees today!

Thanks Maria for helping me figure it out

I went in and put all of my boards in ABC order

While doing that I went and deleted a truck load of boards

Hiya peepers

Shuna here

This week we have learned about the "h" brothers

The kiddos had so much fun with it

We watched this video

Did a sort
{click picture to pick it up for free}

We also did some fun centers

Nicole from Rowdy in Room 300 makes the cutest packs and I was lucky enough that she sent me her 

latest winter pack! Oh my word

Let me tell ya it was so cute and the kiddos really had fun with it

Check it out

If you been reading my blog you know that I heart centers

I love center time

This year we have not been able to do centers like I have wanted to so I am so happy that we are 

now able to get back to our centers

They provide the kinders with much needed hands on practice

My kiddos still need a bunch of practice with cvc words so this center game was perfect

The kiddos first picked a word card and sounded out the word. Then the found the picture that matched 

the word and recorded the answer on their recording sheet and colored! So simple but it really helped 

the kiddos practice those blending skills!

My kidos are just now getting to the point to where what I have been saying and showing them is just 

now starting to sink in and stick! We have been working on beginning sounds and ending sounds since 

August and the kinder hearts would get one and I would be so excited then we would move on to ending 

sounds and they would get that but when we went back to review they seem to have forgotten  either the 

beginning sounds or ending sounds

I set this center out and the kiddos really took off with it

So cute and simple and got them to really focus on each sounds in the word.

They love the letters

Don't know what it is about this class but they love them some letters

Vowel sounds sort

Counting sets

Some of my kinders still need help counting so this little center was perfect

Practice with skip counting

Before and After

LOve the recording sheets to help the kiddos show mastery!

Hop over to Nicole's blog to check out her post

That is all for now peeps

Peace Out
