Greetings from Oregon

I am enjoying my visit with family and friends in Oregon! I have been freezing though in good way because it is so hot at home!!! I am working on some new sight words secret codes to share with everyone! I have been blog stalking a lot and loved all the wish list on the linky party! If you haven't joined what are you waiting for? Happy Wednesday... I think? Funny when I don't do calendar time in the morning I have to look at my phone to see the date!

I am hosting my first linky party about what I wish I had in my classroom. (hopefully I did this right)  What is on your wish list? Here are a few things I wish I had for my classroom!  I have a rolling easel but I would love the storage and versatility of the Royal Reading/Writing Center!(expanded storage)

I really like the colorful storage of these for all my games!!  Hmmm... I am seeing a theme here!

These are so cute... and of course Target has many different ones.  I like these for school and the black oval ones for home!  I found the heart ones on Amazon!  Adorable!

Crash game and Dolch sight words

I made this game with the list of 2nd grade Dolch sight words.  I thought that K and I would play this but he went and rattled off all these words in about 2 seconds! Stinker!  Then said to me that was to easy! Smarty Pants!  Anyways thought I would share anyways.  If you need a website on Dolch sight words check out Mrs. Perkins' Dolch Words.  She has them listed by grade level and frequency used.  I use them and have color coded them for my kids.  Happy Friday!

School's out for SUMMER!!

Yippee!  I am finally done with all my stuff! Let's see I hugged kids, finish portfolios, cleaned and organized my closet and moved all my furniture!  Now onto the mountain of laundry and messy house!  I am working on making some sight word secret words to share!  Thank you to Mrs. Kilburn for the prizes I won!  I finally won something! How exciting!  Now if I could explain to my son that summer means sleeping in.... hmmm 6:15am is not my idea of fun!  Happy Summer!

Ocean Art Projects

The picture above is made with crayons and watercolors.  Have your students draw an underwater scene with their crayons.  Then use the blue and purple water colors but before it is dry sprinkle salt onto it!  It makes a very cool bubbling effect.  

My class will be working on finishing the pirate pictures tomorrow!  They were very excited!  I just made a picture of the ocean, a pirate chest, palm tree! We will add the pirate last! I got the pirate from  Click here to get pirate!

This is a easy jellyfish project!  All you need is a paper plate cut into half and tissue paper cut into strips. Have your students add decorations to the plates then staple the two halves together.  Just add the strips to the inside of the plate!  Quick and easy art!

Kaden at his kindergarten celebration!!  What a goofy kid!  I love his sense of humor and just can't believe he will be in 1st grade next year!
