I ail be back tomorrow with 2 Phonics QR Code Scavenger Hunts. My students loved these. I placed the QR Codes around the room. When they are scanned, an ie or igh word is displayed that they must read. Then students wrote it on the scavenger hunt sheet by the correct clue. So not only does it hit phonics skills, but also vocabulary skills. Have a great Wednesday!

My life has been overtaken with school, my little guy, and life in general. My goal for next school year is definitely to be a better blogger. Hopefully Melissa and I can get it together and post on a more scheduled basis. On a good note, Spring Break is next week!!!!! However, we have had snow flurries for the last three days so I am not feeling the "SPRING" in spring break just yet. Our school recently received an ipod touch cart. Wish it was an ipad cart, but we will take what we can get. I really wanted to use them for more than just letting the kids get on random apps. I wanted it to enhance my instruction. So here is a freebie for tonight. It is a sheet where students scan the QR code and watch "Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon" on youtube and then they write what they think the theme is. Click the pic below to pick it up on TPT.

Each pack contains a vocabulary list with essential vocabulary for the domain and student friendly definitions, a practice sheet in the form of some kind of word puzzle, A whole class activity to practice vocabulary (I Have, Who Has, Bingo, or Scoot), and a Pre/Post Test with Answer Key. I tried to mix it up in each pack so it didn't get boring for the students as the year goes on. You can purchase the packs separately, or save $5 by purchasing them together.
We also just finished measurement, and I noticed several of my students still confusing metric and customary units. So, I created this Sort Activity to help them practice! Click the picture below to pick up the freebie!
I am going to give away your choice of one of the Vocabulary Packs to the first 3 people who comment! Just comment with your email and the Vocabulary Pack (Domain 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5) you would like!

We started making a few Christmasy things this week. First off we made Antonym Antlers. We have been studying antonyms and it just seemed to fit. The kiddos made the hand and footprint reindeer seen on pinterest. It was super easy and required no copying of templates ahead of time for me. Then they had to write an antonym pair, one word on each antler. I decided to hang them on my door. I had them glue on a glittery pom pom for their nose and I had them draw their eyes and mouth. I think it would be even cuter with googley eyes, but I did not have any big enough on hand.
So check out our cutesy little door!!
Here is one of the reindeer close-up.
Here is the sign I made for my door. Click the pic to download it.

We also wrote Santa letters the day before Thanksgiving break so I took the letters we did on a pretty Santa themed paper and glued each one to a green piece of construction paper, made a yellow star, and used brown butcher paper to make a trunk. And TA-DA a Santa Letter Christmas Tree. See the pic below. I love how it turned out! I plan on putting some gifts under the tree to spruce it up.
Well I am off to plan for two days of subs this week since I am out on Tuesday for a PD and Thursday to go to a technology showcase with students. Have a great week!

Well I am posting via my NEW MacBook Pro which I am super excited about. It is an early Christmas present from my hubby since I worried him to death about what it was. So now Melissa says I have joined the Mac club. LOL! I do love it though!!!! Over the weekend I was trying to get together a readers response packet for our Advanced Firsties to do during our Intervention/Enrichment time that we call Wildcat Time. So here it is as a freebie to our fab followers. It includes a before reading prediction printable, vocabulary sheet (based on the vocabulary quiz from Accelerated Reader), Chapter Comprehension questions for each chapter, and a Text to self writing sheet. I hope this will come in handy in some way for you! Click the picture below to go to TPT and download your freebie.

Oh wow has this year been crazy already! So we have kind of been so MIA in the blog world. I am hoping we can fix that. So I am finally on here with a few things I have created and use in my classroom in the last little bit. One thing I started this year is a Reading Focus Wall to go along with our Reading Street program. Here is what my wall looks like.
I also created a Halloween Unit that you can find in my store as well. It includes lots of goodies to keep your little goblins engaged these last eight school days before Halloween. The unit uses the books "There was and Old Lady who Swallowed a Bat", "Who Will Haunt my House on Halloween?" and "The Night Before Halloween". Here are a few picture of some of the craftivities you can find in it, but there is much, much more. Click The Teacher's Brew cover page to check out the extensive preview and pick this up on TPT.
So now I have started the task of creating the printables to go along with each story to go on this Focus Wall. I have been creating them as we come to the story. So for now I have all of Unit 1 and half of Unit 2 posted to my TPT store for FREE! Yes! Head on over there and download them all. I am fixing to upload a Unit 1 Bundle so you can download all of Unit 1 at once. Click the pic below to go to my store and pick these up.
I will give a free copy of this unit to the 3rd commenter.

This pack contains 100 review sheets, with 4 problems per sheet. *Answer Key Included*
The corresponding standards are listed below each problem. Also includes a Standards Index where the review sheet #'s addressing each standard are listed beside the Standards. (You can see the Standards Index in the preview on TpT, and see how the standards are introduced and revisited)
I use this in my 5th Grade classroom, but it would also be great review in 6th Grade. Click here to check it out on TpT.
