Gettin' Cranky with Crankenstein

Have you ever read a book and just thought... 

"You are perfect! You will be my favorite." 

I knew you would understand that feeling! #bookloversunite 

Well... I had that exact moment with the book, Crankenstein by Samantha Berger.

Sentence Practice

Is it just me, or do second graders just not seem to know how to write a complete sentence?

Activity ideas for helping students write better sentences

I mean, sure, they'll have a complete thought, but it's missing the capital letter and the period at the end. Or, there's only 3 words in their sentence. PLEASE tell me this isn't only my seconds???

To help combat this issue this year (And it truly is an issue in our room!) we worked our way through a "sentence writing book camp" so to speak.

Mr. Putter and Tabby Activities

Do you have a favorite book series you just look forward to sharing with your students year after year? I most certainly do! 

The "Mr. Putter and Tabby" Series by Cynthia Rylant is seriously one of my favorite series! I love this series so much, I even pushed it into with a little author study I did my thirds last year. You can read about that here

Exploring Science Inquiry Skills

At the beginning of every year, our science curriculum has us exploring Science Inquiry Skills. It can be a tricky task. Science is huge! Not all scientist do the same things... but to explore this concept, I like to keep it hands-on and fun!

Bulletin Board Hacks to Save Your Sanity

Ok. I love bulletin boards. I do. Ok. Maybe its more like a Love/Hate relationship.

They brighten a room like nothing else can. 

My old room had HUGE bulletin boards. It allowed for so much creativity. I had a few that I kept the same all year, then I had a few that I would change seasonally. This seemed to be a good balance. 

Now, at my new school, I don't have such an abundance of bulletin board space to fill. I also don't seem to have an abundance of energy to expend on filling said bulletin boards 
(I think I am getting old... either that or my toddler is sucking away my energy... ) 

Bulletin board hacks to save your sanity!
