Dr. Seuss is on the Loose!!!

First I am thrilled to say I have shared over 50 free packets with those who asked.  Today is the last day so if you have not emailed me do so quickly!!
Rumor has it that Dr. Seuss is on the loose in my classroom.  I would have to agree and I am soooo excited.  I'm done with winter, done with snowmen, and done with cold weather themes.  Dr. Seuss with bring a bit of sunshine and laughter back into our classroom.
I am busy working on a freebie for all of you with a Seuss theme but not done yet.  Somehow that "teaching" thing gets in the way:) Stay tuned for lots of fun filled activities!

An Editable Freebie!

I think each of you is a Superhero and deserve a freebie for sharing the "Power of Knowledge".

Chinese New Year

I think the cold has caused a "sluggish" attitude.  I can see why animals hibernate.  In reflecting I have a feeling I have also fallen into that pattern.  Therefore my posts have been few and far between.  It is getting difficult to get any kind of momentum going with late starts and snow/freezing cold days.  It is frustrating.  Testing begins today so for the each student I am hoping for consistent schedules.
So enough of my excuses/whining!
We are going to open this week with a Chinese New Year Celebration.  There are endless possibilities that promote content enforcement: Cause/Effect...Compare/Contrast...Vocabulary
Best of all using informational text to uncover facts about another culture.  I absolutely love embedding content and strategy building  into a theme that is a real life experience.  So let's dig in and uncover facts about Chinese New Year.
The packet has Chinese New Year and our New Year.
Scholastic News provides a wealth of information and visuals.

Two of my favorite books for this theme.
Yep green, we were low on white paper!  ABC order for vocabulary and Cause and Effect using the story the Lion Dancer.

Duck! Rabbit!...Freebie


Oops I missed TBT but wanted to post this picture.
This is me in 1974.  I had just graduated from MSU in their Elementary Internship program and it was my first year teaching.  I will be retiring this year 2015.  That is many years participating in the educational arena that I have had a sincere passion for.  I think I will continue to create and consult.


This is such a delightful story!!
I am anxious to have a YES DAY in class.
