Farm Day at the Texas State Fair!

We had an awesome time at the fair even though we didn't get to see Big Tex. Maybe next time. The kids learned about trees in Texas, milking cows, different kinds of livestock, things we grow in Texas and got to see a HUGE PIG! It was a great learning experience for them since most of them had never seen some of these animals before! Enjoy! (Yes, that's me in my socks!)

We were photo bombed by a second grade teacher!

1st Steps in Math and TPT

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been gone for a while but.... You know how it is with school starting and all. I have been busy teaching 4th grade this year! Whooo hooo! But boy am I tired!!!!! I have also been going to a lot (and I mean a lot!) of district training. One of those is called 1st Steps in Math. It is awesome! They have share so many hands-on ideas and RTI for kids :). I really needed it too being an ELA person by nature (and trade!)

I've also decided to start uploading all of my teacher-created stuff from when I taught high school. I figured since I created it and used it for so many years, maybe someone else can benefit from it. I just uploaded a taste today. I uploaded some of my SAT for freshmen word lists, tests and powerpoints that I made and used every year. Here's a pic of the powerpoint for word list #6. I hope you can use these. It will take me a while to upload all of them I have 20 lists, 20 tests and 20 powerpoints for each grade level from 9th through 11th. I think I'll start with 9th!  Hopefully I will have that level all uploaded by this weekend (fingers crossed!). Enjoy!
