Linking up with Farley for Currently!

Word Vomit about all the different sections:: I love the Amazing Race! I want to go on the show so bad. Bucket List! It would be such a great experience. Spring Break is here and I am just so happy to be relaxing. My parents got me a Godiva Chocolate Bunny. So Yummy! Self- Control! ;)I am sending in 5 apps tomorrow! Ooh goodness! :) If anyone has any good practical jokes let me know! My fiance needs to be tricked! ahaha!  My advice is about what I notice.. you can really just tell the blogs that are fully in love with their job. It shines right through.

Five for Friday!

I am so happy to be linking up for Five for Friday! :)

1. I am on Spring Break! YAY! I am so happy to home, but this means applying for jobs. Next year, I am moving back to my home town to be with my fiance and our families, which means time for a new job. Ugh! It is so nerve-wracking, but God has a plan for me and everything will work out.

2. On Monday, I had 7 kiddos gone! That's right 7! It was crazy. I had no idea where they were, but with my kiddos that were here I whipped up a quick craft at the end of the day because of their amazing behavior. Here are a few pictures of the masks I let them make. After they made their masks, they had to write a story about them. I wish I would have taken a picture of their writing it was so cute!

These made it really easy to take pictures because their face was already covered up!

3. I found my wedding invitations at target! They were on clearance. I was happy to find them, and I love them! Here is a picture:

4. I bought a new book for weight loss. Fingers crossed I stick with it! It is The Eat-Clean Diet Recharged. A girl I use to work with loves it and told me to try it, so I will let you know if it works!

5. A few weeks ago, I had a weird skin issue, but it is all cleared up now without surgery! Thank goodness! :)

Well there is my five! Happy Friday! :)

March High/Lows! :)

I am linking up Katie at Teacher to the Core for her High/Low Linky!

There was a lot of wonderful things this month, it is hard to choose one high! So I will choose two! The first is in my classroom. We have been working learning our multiplication facts, and my littles are getting it!! Anytime they finish their work, they ask if they can practice more and that make me so happy. It is great to see them trying so far and being so motivated to learn those facts. These kids have come so far from the beginning of the year. When they first started some of them didn't know their addition and subtraction facts, and now they are learning multiplication. Happy Teacher Right here!

My second high is that my fiance and I have been together for two years together this month! I am so excited to marry him even though it is not till July 2014. Here is a picture of us from a car show we went too::

It is hard to think of the lows, but one of my kiddos has been really struggling behavior wise. She began the year struggling, drastically improved, then all of a sudden went back to this unacceptable behavior. It makes me so sad because she is so bright, but her anger can get the best of her. I am hoping spring break will give her the much needed break.

Now it is your turn! Go Link up!

It has been far too long! Lots of Pictures! :) ((Freebie at the Bottom!))

It feels like FOREVER since I posted on here! Along with teaching, starting the process of looking for a new job in a new area, spending time with the fiance, and every other little thing in life, I just have been a lazy blogger. Oops! Well I am back and I have a lot of fun things to share! We have been so busy in my little classroom. There have been so many different things we have been learning. We are in a couple of my favorite units of the school year. The kiddos are at a point where they are really independent, have lots of fun ideas, and are really being challenged with the curriculum. I LOVE it!

Right now our Invention Unit is taking over our classroom.  All the kids can talk about is what they are inventing. In class, they design their invention, write a paper to persuade people to buy their invention, make an advertising poster, and write a commercial script that they will use when they try to sell their product. At home, they have to make their invention. One girl was so excited she went home right away and made her invention! I was so proud! :) At the end of the unit we have an Invention Fair. The kiddos love showing the other kids in the school and parents what they can create. ((I am working at putting all of this fun stuff together in a pack!)) So far some of the inventions are Spring Shoes, Water Bottle Water Gun, Homework Machine, and Bubblegum pop! Here is some pictures of their work so far::

 This is the cover of their folders!

They fill out a page about an inventor

A brainstorm page!

Then they draw a picture of their invention!

 They have to write a proposal

Writing Planning Page! :)

Final Copy Paper! :)

Here are a couple kiddos at work!

As you can see, we have been super busy! :) So one of my good teacher friends just started a blog! We met back at Macy's working at the Estee Lauder counter together, and she got a job at the school we work at and told me to apply! Last year, she was a 3rd Grade Teacher, so I never really saw her. :( This year though she is 1st Grade, which rocks because I get to see her a lot now! Check out her blog!

I, also, have a super fun giveaway for you to enter! Kimberly is having her 300 Follower Giveaway! Check it out! :) ((Click the picture to take you there!))

Here is your freebie! We have been working on multiplying and when we are done working on our math lesson, I love to have the kids do a fun worksheet! We had an Early Release Day today, so I created this short little Bunny Times 3 sheet! Enjoy! :)
