This and That

Hope all have had a good week. Mine has been busy!
Monday and Tuesday I worked on my classroom at school. I am pleased with how it looks this year. Here is a look at a few things.

This is my reading focus wall. Kathryn shared this idea with me from another website. We both thought it would be useful. Well, it must be the buzz thing at reading workshops this summer (which I haven't attended). Several teachers came by and said that they saw them and wanted to copy my idea. Thanks sister!! :)
This is my new favorite. This will be part of math block each day. I will use it along with Drops in the Bucket.
Can't forget writing since it is tested in 5th. You got to get them ready while they are in the 4th.

This is just the back wall of my classroom, I will try to add the other 3 walls later. In case any teachers reads this and can gain an idea. I always like looking at other teacher's rooms.

Wednesday, I took Katie Lee to storytime. The Golden Age Band was singing for the senior citizens, so the little ones joined in on a couple of songs. That band may be golden but they are young at heart.

Thursday was a workshop day for me so Katie Lee spent another day with Grammie. That night Aunt Kitty went out to eat with us. She also brought Katie Lee a new game.

Today, we ran errands for things for the house. I will give an update on all of the progress this week later. I also worked on these. Check back later to see what it is all about.

I made some decorations like that for a party this summer. Your's look very cute! I'll have to peek in your classroom when I face reality and go to school. I need some new ideas. Thanks for sharing!

I am one of those that stole the idea from you and your sister. Great Idea too by the way! Had a "blast" at the workshop with you too! Talk to you soon and enjoy!
