The Reading Corner


I just wanted to share one of my favorite blogs!!  {It's not just for the freebie.........I really and truly LOVE Renee's blog!!!!!  Ask my friends..............I talk about her ALL THE time!! Oh I hope that doesn't freak her out.}  Renee has been blogging for about 6 months and she has shared a plethora {oh yeah, that's a big word!} of ideas!!  Don't be fooled by the name of her blog she is also all about math.  She inspired me to dive into Daily 5 Math this year, which has changed math in my room COMPLETELY!!!

Hope you enjoy her blog as much as I do!!

Cheers!!

This is how I roll......

Tuesday nights are NCIS, NCIS: LA, & Covert Affairs night.

It is the only night I watch t.v. {consistently}

So this is how I roll on Tuesday nights..........













Yup.  That's right...........water, ruler, sharpies, scissors, train monster truck, laptop set to common core website, foam pieces for math puzzle, remote & eye candy in the background {sorry husband.........just sayin'}

Cheers!!

We voted.........did you???

First grade wanted to do a voting special activity for the kids to make a connection to all the election hoopla but we wanted to stay away from all the politics.  So I mention to the others that I saw somewhere that some class somewhere in some school voted between Pepsi & Coke.  So we turned that idea into a week long project!


We did blind taste tests..........



 {B won}

We campaigned.........







We created voter registration cards.
We voted..........

 {signing in with their voter registration cards}



We tallied the votes.......


Pepsi beat Coke 44 to 30 {BOOOOOOOOO!!}


 We celebrated with Coke, Pepsi and red/white/blue jello cups!!!!

CHEERS!!
