Happy Weekend Dear Friends!
This school year is flying by. Seriously!!!
Didn't it just seem like we were going over rules and procedures
without our kiddos, and now we are in the midst of it all.
I couldn't wait to link up with Farley at Oh Boy, 4th Grade for
the November Currently.
I absolutely LOVE when our house filled with 4 children is calm and peaceful!! It doesn't happen very often ,But when it happens I am one happy Mama. No one fighting over toys, arguing over a minor thing.... The Quiet can be pure bliss at times.
I have one amazing husband! I am so lucky. It's been a crazy week this week, and he's been working hard to tidy up our home this morning while I've been busy working on school stuff. Actually as I type this, he's now working on one of my son's Lego masterpieces. Our 2 year old loves to seek and destroy these Lego masterpieces.
I cannot believe the holidays are just around the corner. So much to do!!! That's why I would love a personal shopper. Someone to go out during this busy holiday season and purchase the gifts, keep a list with amounts for me ( I sometimes forget what I've purchased and even where I've placed things.), AND wrapping the items would be a huge BONUS!
I'm feeling so blessed! ( What can I say my husband's been cleaning the house and doing laundry and my kiddos are blissfully playing side by side. ) We had several late nights of PTC conferences this past week at school. It's such a relief to have those out of the way. It's always nice to get to talk with each and every parent, but those late nights at school are rough!
Our school just recently allowed us to access YouTube in our classroom. It has been blocked in the past. I have been playing this fabulous song my kids request as a brain break called What I Am! Will I Am!

AND 1 more thing... I promise this is it.
We've been working on a fairytale/folktale unit in my classroom. I love using the fairytales/folktales that are at my 3rd grader's reading level. They can be used to cover many common core standards in literature. These are fabulous for compare/contrast, and lessons taught in a story. Our basal reader has several of them scattered throughout, so I combined them into one big unit for my students, "Fairytale Literacy Unit for Bigger Kids". This 69 page unit includes lesson plans, comprehension questions and graphic organizers tied to the common core for 3 different fairy tales. It also includes 4 literacy stations/work stations. My students will be doing these next week. There is also a fractured fairy tale writing activity as well. I can't wait to get my students into this next week! If you want to find out more information click on any picture below to be taken to this on TPT. The first 3 to comment with their favorite folktale or fairytale will receive this unit free by e-mail. ( Don't forget to include your e-mail with your comment.)
Have a fabulous weekend!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
