A very exciting week!

I have been so excited this week because I have actually gained followers!  All of my stalking visiting other blogs is beginning to pay off.  I love being able to share ideas with other teachers that are out there and hopefully I will continue to gain some more followers :)

I have my big evaluation this week (Wednesday) I'm actually very nervous but surely everything will be okay!  I'm doing it in Math this year (I taught Elementary and JH Science last year) so I am kind of out of my element but hopefully everything will run smoothly and the kids will hopefully be there normal sweet selves. 

One thing I found in preparation for my evaluation is an interactive geoboard that I will be using. The link is here it appears to be very cool and I know my Mon-"stars" are going to LOVE it!  They love to brag about how smart they are at using a Promethean Board.  They call themselves Promethean experts, and can't wait to show future teachers everything they know! :)

Last week was a very exciting week because I also have discovered a free program that my students love to help them with their facts.  XtraMath is a free program that assesses and allows students to practice addition and subtraction facts based on their grade levels.  My kids love it and it appears to be more on their level than Sum Dog. 

We have been talking about Pronouns and I found this activity on Pinterest which linked back to this blog  I love there stuff!  I found an idea for a "Pocketful of Pronouns" activity.  I created my own pocket for this activity and put it in my TPT Store for free!  Below are some of the pockets:

On the outside flap they wrote the pronoun, and on the inside they wrote a sentence using a pronoun.  We are still struggling with the use of me.  My kids love craftivities and I think I'm going to be making shape monsters with them sometime this week! 

We also did Oreo phases of the moon which I'm sure everyone has done/seen on pinterest so I really didn't get any photos of that!  I've been seeing lots of neat ideas for classrooms and utilizing space I can't wait to tackle mine this summer it is a mess! 

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
