Bugs, Bugs, Bugs

So dang sweet...... when the kids catch a ladybug at  recess and run to  show you..... not so much when they stomp it 40 times like its the Lochness Monster (yes this happened- and we had tears from on lookers)  If real life insects had the CrAzY cute bug eyes like those in our clip art, we might not be so ticked when the mosquito's suck our face off when we go outside.  Here is our Bugs unit Math & Literacy- LOADED with CrAzY fun activities to review and keep the wheel spinnin' up there!

Silent "e"

Silent "e" silent "e" how would we read without thee?? Silent "e" Silent "e" here it is a freebie!
 Tell the kids when the silent "e" is at the end of the word the other vowel gets so excited he wants to introduce himself and say his name!  Such a fun way to teach it! The kids giggle and get it every time after practice! This freebie is great practice! Have some CrAzY fun with it!

2 weeks ago we had 13 tornado's that touched down.  I was bound and determined to get a storm shelter that day- since my husband thought it was silly to put his family $9,000 in debt (yes that is for the deluxe model folks- to which he seriously replied "what could they POSSIBLY make deluxe about 4 walls of concrete in the ground??!!!) SO rude! we He decided against it.  Poo!  So the next tornado we have- be FULL aware I will have no peace yet again!  No tornadoes today, just some rain and wind here in good ol' Texas.  It's been pretty windy lately, and I should know because I hate the wind! I hate the wind so much I started to wonder if they ever close school because of the wind?.  Think about it.  Seriously.  There COULD be power outages and stuff like that.  YES we teach inside where it isn't windy- but just sayin'.... maybe they should reconsider.  All this CrAzY weather has reminded us that our weather unit is right around the corner so here it is.  It's Friday!!!  Yipppiee!!

CrAzY Unorganized Mess!???

We have some students that are SO unorganized that this reminds us of them:
We KNOW you can relate sister!!

We have SOME students that are SO MESSY this brings some names to mind:

And those same students usually look like this after lunch-

We are NOT above bribin' folks!  Have the desk fairy or handwriting fairy visit your classrooms and leave a note for all students.  Leave a treat with the fireman and police officer.  The trash man is a reminder to ALWAYS do their best work.  The kids love being ready for them to visit.  Enjoy-It's FREE!!

Vanilla Ice- we're takng you back...old school style

Field Trip
Yo, kids, let's kick it!
Ice ice baby
Ice ice baby
All right stop
Kindergarten and listen
Your teachers back and ya better be listenin'
Someone -show your neighbor rightly
How to be safe- holding hands tightly
Will ya ever stop?
Yo, say no
Field Trips can be fun ya know!
To the extreme I'll make you hold MY hand hee hee
Its no fun if your stuck with me

Put the bubble in your mouth
The bus driver can't think and I think he's heading south. 
Wrong way!, Everybody hold on!
He turns around and I think he's still headed wrong
Kids don't fight
If there is a problem
Yo, I'll solve it
Have some think time, while we resolve  it

Ice ice baby Vanilla
Ice ice baby Vanilla
Ice ice baby Vanilla

Now that the field trip is jumping
With the kids actin' CrAzY and the teachers are pumpin'
Quick to the place we came to see
We're running all over like CrAZY bees.
Stay cool, parents are helping
I go CrAzY when I hear a scream, I reach down to my stash of Rolo's
  Pop them in my mouth, now it's time to be solo
Rollin' back in our yellow bus- nice
With the window half down so my sweat can dry
 The kids on stanby
Waving just to say hi
Do we stop?
No, we just drove by
Kept on pursuing to the next stop
  We busted a left and we're heading to the next block
That block was dead

 Yo so we continued to a1a to our Elementary school!
  Kids were hot, dying for some water
  Teachers thinkin' it couldn't be hotter!
Fallin' on the concrete real fast
Jumped out the bus, ran into class
Bumper to bumper the hallways are packed
I'm tryin' to get a/c before my make-up is wacked!
 Principal on the scene
You know what I mean
  She passed me up, confronted one in jeans
If there was a problem
Yo, I'll solve it
2 crazy texas teachers know how to rock it!

  We are hoping for sunny skies as we head to the farm on THE BIG YELLOW SCHOOL BUS.  Oh how we love to watch the CrAzY excitement of these kids on their 1st ride on the big yellow school bus.  Goo With field trips right around the corner lets get them writing like CraZy about it!  This Field Trip packet has a pre-field trip writing page for them to write about what they think the school bus ride will be like- OH THE EXCITEMENT it brings! Then there is the day after the field trip where they write about the field trip itself.  Our PTA pays part of our students cost to the field trip, so our students write a thank you note each year thanking PTA and telling them where they went and what their favorite part of the field trip was.  We included that page too!  There is nothing more fun then getting your kids excited about writing- and a field trip always does the trick!

on a side note- we have gone a little CrAzy- given the fact that there are only 6 Monday's left of school....that's right 6!!! And with that comes CrAzInEsS.  Our fingers were faster than the brain and accidentally uploaded our I Have Who Has games with the file that was not corrected.  We have since corrected this problem so please if yours isn't working leave your email so we can get in touch with you for the correct file.

CRaZy Good Writers!

Practice makes perfect! Practice.... practice... practice..... everyday our children must be writing.  Moving the thoughts from their brain onto paper and then adding all the rules to get it right- that's a lot for these little ones!!  But guess what?!!  They can do it!  And they can do it good, if you give them lots of practice!  Our little ones have a writing block everyday day.  We have 30 min of solid quiet uninterrupted time where we play "smart music" (we jam out classical music) the kids know if "smart music" is on, they are quite.  It really lets them think!  We are going to give you all the tools you need to get these little ones CrAzY good at writing.  Here is our Space Writing packet.  The kids LOVE the endless possibilities they have with our writing themes.  They think it is SO FUN, and can't wait for the next theme we bring out.  Wait ....what??  You want your kids to beg for writing time like ours do?? CrAzY! Here is our Space Writing Packet- THEY are going to LOVE how fun it is and YOU are going to LOVE how easy this makes your writing time!
