January fun AND history & geography notebooks


Well it seems I can only get to this a couple times a month. Ah well. Here I am. How are you? 

After another doctor's appointment for my nose, I've been feeling a lot better in the past 1-2 weeks and have been able to do so much more! I have a CT scan for my nose in February to get more info on that situation. Here's what I've been up to:

I am excited about more game nights with friends and an IKEA & Costco date in a couple weeks (some of my friends have never been to Costco as there's not many in the UK-we're silly! And IKEA-who doesn't love it there?)

Here's what we've been up to in History and Geography at school for those that want any notebook ideas:

why is this spelled artefact or artifacts? weird.

Also I've finished Part 2 for Math Journals: Second Grade Place Value. There is so much packed into second grade addition and subtraction.whoa.

I hope to be back on here sooner than later. Love reading all your blogs. I may not comment on them much (am trying to get better at that) but I am constantly inspired by all of you amazing educators!!

Happy New Year!

I can't believe I haven't been on here for a month! My husband and I have spent the last 2 1/2 weeks visiting family and friends in Phoenix for Christmas. The focus was on loved ones, so no time for lesson plans or journal printables.

Needless to say I'm feeling super behind.

Meetings at work tomorrow. Lesson plans. Gotta get Book Week sorted. Field trip in 2 weeks. Hope the playscript I picked got OK'd. Lesson plans. Eeek.

Anyway the past several weeks:

1) last day of term 2) easiest gift I made for my students
3) Christmas dinner  4) new shoes!  5) hiking in Phx  6) reading

I found some pictures of some kdg/first grade literacy journals back at home for those that want some ideas or are ready to start journals for the first time!

Now, the freebie! Money Printables: Part 2 (for second grade) is FREE until Tuesday 1/7/14! Get it here! is what I hope to be finished with next weekend! 

It was supposed to be Place Value: Part 2 (for second grade), but my goodness 2.MD.5 is long!! So there will have to be a part 3 in the future until I can get it all put together.

Off to bed now for me! Have a great day!
