I'm finally back

I'm sure if you follow me you see that most of my recent posts are similar to this: I'm back... I'm busy... I can't keep up!  Well the last few months have been extremely. I just finished (last night!) another round of administrative courses.  Four done... like a million left! 
Anyway, I am totally in love with teaching 2nd grade.  These kiddos are amazing and so incredibly cute. I wish I would have been able to switch grade levels earlier.  So this past month we have been reading about fables and folktales.  My kids have done an amazing job telling the lesson or moral, as well as describe the parts of a story.  This week we are reading Stone Soup, and then on Friday, since it is the last day before Spring/Easter break, we are making Stone Soup!! How fun!!!  Thursday is also Parent-Teacher Conference day, so this week is pretty light.  I love being able to tell my parents how great their kiddos are and to be able to show them their progress. 
My plan, at least until the end of May when my next set of classes start, is to keep updating my blog and get some more TPT products up.  If you haven't checked out my math station boards on TPT, please do so! I love creating new backgrounds and designs, so hopefully I'll have a few more up soon.  Thanks for following me, still!

Freezing... and drowning.. oh and Currently

This winter weather is kicking my butt. I've wanted to get into school to do more, but haven't... I really took a break from school until Tuesday this week. I didn't do any work during last week's vacation. This week I really wanted to get planning and get ahead since my administration classes start up at the end of the month.  Those 10 week courses are killer!  Anyway, I'm looking at revamping my blog, since I don't teach fourth anymore... but not sure where to start, so bear with me (those of you who follow..)
I'm drowning in finding materials to teach 2nd and resources. I wasn't really left with much in my class, especially when it comes to units for S.S./Science or extra activities for Math and ELA.  So it feels like each week, I'm drowning in planning and preparation.  I really needed these two weeks off!


I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their vacation or weekend, if you went back last week!
