Oh, how happy is this teacher?  VERY!!!!! I have so much to get caught up on. So let's dive in. First of all, I have had 2 snow days and about to have a 3rd in a row. That is absolutely unheard of in my City School District. Sunday we got this horrible ice storm and snow on top. It is awful on my side of the street. Anyway, I have gotten the chance to love on my sweet preschoolers ( my kids) and be mommy. I love that job a lot.

Second, I wanted to let you know about some awesome things that I have been doing in my classroom over the last couple of months. You better hold on to seats because I'm going to upload as many pictures as I can.

Okay, I just love when you can't go outside and you find Just Dance on Youtube. These pictures are of some of my kiddos getting their dance on. It is so funny to watch them. I love these kiddos a LOT!!!!

These pictures are of my sweet little man and his first day of preschool. He wasn't so sure about eating breakfast, but they said he did well. 2 months later, he loves it and tells me that he loves his teacher Mrs. Brandy. #mommysheartsmiles

When we returned from Christmas break, I worked on a Polar Animal unit. This is a picture of my interactive notebook all about penguins. The 2nd graders had to do a Penguin Research report. I haven't uploaded it my TPT store only because I used these kiddos as the guinea pigs so I have had to make some correction. Gotta love free labor! LOL!

This is from the Martin Luther King unit that I did thanks to Lyndey Kuster from A Many Years of First. I was so proud of this work that my kids did. They learned so much about MLK. I had one student who use to live in ATL and he was a wealth of knowledge. I think I spent a week asking everyone to look at their wonderful work. Now the last picture of the I dream paper is so cute. It was one that I just had to take a picture of. I had asked the kiddos to take the crayons and match it to their skin. I just want to say that I have NO child that dark in my class. I just smiled and hugged this sweet girl. Gotta love their interpretation of the directions.

Then came the 100th day of school. The first picture is of my pitiful door banner. I absolutely forgot the day was coming. I had to quick plan for the day. Of course with 3 classes, it was easy to choose an activity. The rest of the pictures are of  my hallway's banners. The last picture is of the hall banner that the cluster across the way from us did. It turned out really cute and BIG!!!

The top is of our Valentine boxes. I kept saving milk gallons and cut an opening in the front. I gave the kiddos all the art supplies I had and told them to be creative. You can see what I got. It was such a fun day. They had the best time working on them. We had a very low key party. I don't know about any of you but I can't stand parties. It just drains me. I would rather just teach. I know silly. I just struggle with getting excited about it. LOL! The bottom picture is from Babbling Abby's Poppin Adjective unit. I had had this file for a while but had not used it. I started noticing that my kiddos were struggling with the describing so I thought its time for POPCORN!!!!

Okay, I promise this is the last of pictures. Since it is Read Across America Week, my wonderful friend and partner in crime had a "Shower Moment" and thought that we should make a banner for our hallway entrance. This banner would have different book covers and authors because as much as we love Dr. Seuss, we were wanting to do something different. Anyway, The chains are the of the books that our 2nd graders read for AR and passed. It was a lot of chains. We spent Thursday making chains after chains but the face of those kiddos walking through that banner was priceless. It made all that stapling worth it. The bottom picture is of my door for the  door contest that was suppose to happen Monday but of course if you remember we are on a SNOW DAY!!!! 

Now the 3rd and finally thing for the night. The reason that this is one Happy TEACHER!!! My husband and I got our taxes in and fixed both of our cars and bought this lovely computer that I am typing my post on right now. My old computer was needing to go to the pasture. I am so excited I cant stand it. I hope it will motivate me to finish some TPT projects and to start a book that I want to write about my journey in having a Gastric Sleeve surgery. Well, I have written enough and I hope you will return. I hope to get better at this blogging because I really do enjoy it. LOVES!!!!
