Random Friday

Hey friends! Happy Friday!! Whew! What a week...I am finally linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for her 
 I always want to do it, but never have enough pics. This week I've got a couple to share. Here we go!
1) Morning routine
We are having a hard time in the morning to remember our routines. Sooo, last night, I whipped up these posters and we talked about them at morning meeting today. The kids loved the clipart and they never comment on the little details like that so thanks to Melonheadz! haha, I will have to use that one more.

2) Ruby Bridges
We learned about Ruby this week in social studies and made writing girls. They came out so cute!!

3) Management
So I hope you can see this, but along with the mornings, we've had a super tough week in general so I made this second grade ppt and put all the kids names. Then we talked about how we need to start getting prepared for second grade and each day, I would be looking for great behavior and hard work, if they don't show it, I cross their name off the list! (ahh!) BUT they have a chance to redeem themselves and get uncrossed off...this continues until friday and each week, whoever is still on the list gets a special prize. (This week it was a pencil, next week they get to wear just socks in the classroom) It's seemed to work well so far. I hope it continues.

4) Measurement
We started nonstandard measurement in math and the beginning of this week, we practiced estimating and using pattern blocks to measure each item. This sheet I found through google, but can't remember the source. :/

5) Snowball fun
Again with measurement, we did "snowballs" to measure height. I just love his face in this picture!! hehe

Well, I'm cooking up tacos tonight! Yum! And tomorrow morning the future Mr. has to work, so I'm excited to get up early and finish my school stuff so we can head up to Greensboro for a while in the evening and I can relax on Sunday. My goal is to get things done ahead of time more often so I'm not constantly overwhelmed like I've been lately. I hope everyone has a great night! One thing I love about Fridays is TLC's Bride-day! lol That's what I'll be watching tonight! ;)
