Throwback Thursday...already!

Wowzers...that week flew by!
We have been crazy busy DIBELING our 47 darlins' every chance we get.
But we just HAD to post another "oldie"!

We made these silhouttes 4 years ago with our 1-2 multi-age kiddos. We used our overhead projector and chalk to trace their silhouettes on black construction paper. Then we cut them out and mounted them onto blue and red construction paper. Then our class wrote about what they would do if they were the president!

This picture of us was taken 12 years ago.

So we would like to give you this FREEBIE to help you celebrate with your kiddos!

Story Necklaces


After completing our Multi-Flow Maps of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, our kiddos made storynecklaces and retold the story with a partner. You can click the picture below to click our Multi-Flow map for FREE!!!

We copied our story necklaces onto cardstock. We reviewed the procedures for making the necklaces. Then we set out the materials for our students to use independently...hole punchers and yarn. They did a fantastic job cooperating, sharing, and helping each other!

The next day, our students made mice and completed a fun writing frame!


You can download and print our story necklace for FREE at out TPT store!!!
 Simply click on our TPT widget and it will take you straight to it.
Hope your students have as much fun as ours did☺

We can't wait to meet all of our new Bloggy Friends♥♥♥

Happy 2013! My name is Amy and I am so excited to be a guest blogger for Victoria and Tricia’s blog 2 Super Teachers. This is my first time guest blogging and this linky party is the perfect way to start. I have been teaching for 25 years. I consider myself extremely blessed to have a job that I love (and would continue to do even if I won the lottery!). I am a primary teacher (big kids scare me – LOL) and have taught various combinations of K-3. The last four years, I was an intensive reading teacher for second grade. Each year, I had a full-time class of students who struggled with reading. In addition, most of them had trouble with math and writing. Many of them also had trouble with behavior (understandable, since they had spent the last 2-3 years learning all about what they could NOT do). After four years, I knew that I had found my niche, so at the end of last year, I got certified in ESE K-12. This year, I am working as an ESE resource teacher for grades K-2 and I LOVE it!! I get to spend my days totally focused on my students. I am getting paid to discover how to help my little ones be successful in the gen. ed classroom – how cool is that – without all of the distractions our “housekeeping” duties bring.

I am all about helping students see their potential and achieve their goals. One of the activities I did with my IR kids each year was goal-setting. I found that helping children set realistic goals and then track their progress was very beneficial. So, I thought I would share how I did that.

Have an amazing 2013!
