Dr. Seuss Day

So, I know I am way behind, but I just HAD to blog about Dr. Seuss Day! This has been a crazy month (see post below) so cut me a little slack : )

March Wedding and Honeymoon

What an amazing and crazy month! I feel like I am always playing catch up, but this month I at least have a good excuse. I GOT MARRIED! : ) I still don't have the official pictures back from the photographer, but here are a few to share:

Please note the raindrops. It POURED the entire wedding. It was so sad because it was suppose to be outdoors and it had to be moved inside at the very last minute. I was so disappointed, but it was beautiful and we got some really neat pictures. Plus rain is suppose to be lucky and symbolizes fertility, great...haha : )

This was a photo collage that my best friend and bridesmaid Kate made, I just thought the pictures were so cute and I am still obsessing about my cake. In fact, it deserves it's own picture.

I LOVE IT! And it was so delicious too. 

Tyler and I : )

This picture just appeared on my phone's pictures. No idea who took it, but I'm so glad I have it.

My favorite flower arrangement. This is when it was still in progress by the florist, it was GORGEOUS.

Y'all planning a wedding is no joke! It was so much work and preparation. I am so glad to have all of that stress behind me! After the wedding, Tyler and I headed to Miami Beach and then onto Antigua. It was absolutely beautiful and so much fun!

Take me back!

I also haven't even posted about our fun Dr. Seuss Day and our Dinosaur Unit that wrapped up yesterday. It looks like my game of catch up will continue tomorrow! : ) It is gorgeous outside and I'm in the mood to plant some flowers. Have a Happy Saturday!

Happy Heart Week and a FREEBIE

I just love VALENTINE'S DAY! 
It also helps that it is my birthday : ) 
Here are a few pictures of how we have kicked off this week of love...

 How cute are these!
"Love is when my dad takes me bowling. Love is when my mom tucks me in."
"Love is when your grandma gives you a bath. Love is kind."

 These activities are included in my Heart to Heart Valentine Math Centers. 
I have them in my math tubs this week and the kids have really enjoyed them!

I have candy hearts with this center so the kids can build the problems too!

And now...the moment you have all been waiting for...the FREEBIE.

This is a SUPER easy write the room activity with giant conversation hearts. The words I used are really basic, but it has been nice to reinforce sentence structure. I hope you can use this in your classroom this week! Click the image to download from Teachers Pay Teachers.

100th Day of School

Today we celebrated the 100th Day of School! It was a great day and a lot of fun for everyone.


 Twin 100 year olds the right! They are precious and dress alike everyday! The cutie on the left is from another class, but I had to take her picture!

 "When I am 100 years old I will go swimming. I will go camping with my grandchildren. I am going to go to the mall."

The idea for these precious little portraits came from Deanna Jump's 100th Day Math and Literacy Mini Unit. 

(Please admire the pipe cleaner glasses.)

 "When I am 100 years old I will get a new watch. I will have 16 dogs.  I will also go camping. It will be so much fun."

 "When I am 100 years old I will go swimming. I will have kids. My kids will grow up. My hair will be gray."

I literally had little friends licking their plates. They loved the pancakes! The best part was that I had a mom to be a pancake chef. AND this mom use to be a teacher, so she was an expert on 100th day craziness : )

Last night I returned from the SDE Kindergarten Teacher's Conference. This was my first BIG conference to attend and it was AMAZING. I left feeling refreshed and excited to be a teacher! One of the highlights of the trip was meeting teacher celebrity blogger Deanna Jump. She was as sweet as can be and did not disappoint. AND she was born a town away. She is a Texas girl too!  Small world! 

Me, Deanna Jump and Paige (my fellow teacher attendee) 

I look like I could eat her because I am so giant next to her! AH! 

I loved it! I also got to hear Crystal from Kreative in Kinder and Kim from Kinder by Kim speak. They were both just precious! 

Thanks for reading! I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Texas Kindergarten Teachers

I am so over this cold weather! YUCK! I'm counting on that groundhog to bring some good news!
Next week I am attending the Conference for Texas Kindergarten Teachers in San Marcos. I CAN'T WAIT. And Deanna Jump is going to be there! I feel like she is a bit of a celebrity in the teaching world. As well as many other presenters that I can't wait to see!
Any other Texas Kinder teachers out there attending? I would love to meet up!
We kicked off our penguin week yesterday and my phone is out of memory so I couldn't take a single picture. GRRRR. Looks like I will be cleaning out my phone tonight...
Stay warm! ; )

Sneezy the Snowman Graphing Freebie

Did you survive the first week back? It was definitely a long one for me! I had something going on every night this week. TGIF for reals.
This week we did lots of fun activities with Snowmen! This year I discovered the book, Sneezy the Snowman. I loved it and so did my class! Many of the activities I used came from Deanna Jump's Sneezy the Snowman Unit.
Today for math we did an ice cream graphing activity to go with the book. The kids loved it because they got to eat ice cream!
Here is the graph for you to use. It is nothing fancy, but it gets the job done. I hope you can use it in your classroom. I found the cute snowman graphic HERE. I just bought a tub of Neapolitan ice cream and we ate it out of cups because I forgot bowls, oops. I was just glad I had spoons!
I wish I had some great new ideas to share with you, but I pretty much did the same stuff that is all over Pinterest. At least I can admit that, right : )
Also, I just had to share this with you. fiancĂ© and I went to Barnes and Nobles for some cheesecake after dinner and I (of course) had to make a run through the children's section and look what I found...
This is a real page in the book:
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
