Sunday, almost Monday...

Can you believe how fast the weekends go? I know they are way too speedy quick for this first grade girl! Especially since I spent my entire Saturday doing this:
MISSION ORGANIZATION


Every drawer, closet, and cupboard are now organized and cleaned out!! It took me 12 hours and I'm sure with 3 boys in the house it will stay cleaned and organized for about 12 seconds.  

In Sunday tradition here are my plans: 


Anything in color in the plans is linked. I wish I could share some of the cute things I made for my winter animal unit but I used DJ Inkers graphics and don't have their license, so until I purchase more graphics and rework them, I can't share.  SO sad! 

I do want to share a few things were doing next week and I'll post pictures soon.  
My math and word work center are from this pack:

My sight word center will be this:
My poetry center:
Poem was found here: 
Book Center 
(I'll try to purchase more commercial graphics so I can share this)

My Listening Center comes from here:

This week for Reader's Workshop we are working on making connections.  I have various text-self connections sheets in the pack below that I'll be using. They are of varying complexity so I can differentiate.  

I also have three cutie pies that need some extra basic writing practice and they will be using my sweet friend Deedee's Read, Trace Draw activities.  They love them! 

Oh! And I finally finished my Morning Menu for February and March.  And PTL it finally uploaded! 
Have a great Sunday night and Happy Monday! I'll be back soon.

Until then I leave you with this:
My cute boyfriend from one of my favorite shows, Revenge. 
Just a little eye candy to get you through this week.

  3. Love the organization pictures; I was just looking at some youtube organization videos this weekend! Also, your school dismisses at 2:35? I'm jealous - we dismiss at 4 (but it's a charter school). Most schools in TX dismiss at 3 though. 2:35 would be amazing because of having some time to get work done after the kids leave!

    1. I do love getting out early. Teachers can leave at 3:20 but I also wake up at 4:30 to get everyone where they need to be so I can be at school at 7.

    1. We use Lucy Calkins' units of study. She is coming out with Common Core units next spring. I think 6 Traits is also good for the core.
