Game Goo

Have you seen the site game goo? http://www.earobics.com/gamegoo/gooey.html My students absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this site. It has the funniest graphics and sounds. It is great or grades K-2.  It has this toothfairy guy that reviews antonyms and synonms with your students and at the end all his teeth fall out. My boys love it!! The girls in my classroom think it is disgusting. It would also be a great site to review on your smartboard if you have one. :) Make sure and turn the sound up really loud. My kids love the sound effects!!

Compound Compound

I made my first unit for Teachers Pay Teachers I can't believe how much work these units take to make. I have it on sale right now for $2.50. It is a great supplement for teaching compound words. I have some great centers and even a chant that you do with the students. My students really know what compound words are because my students always beg to do the chant. It also has a fun writing activity that goes with it and how I teach compound words. I hope that you will check it out!

Free Adverbs

I have been so out of the loop lately, I haven't posted in FOREVER!!! However I do follow teacher blogs on a daily basis. Sometimes with two kids it's hard to feel the creative juices. I feel so uncreative lately. When I didn't have kids I had all the time in the world to create and now that I have kids I feel like I have no time to create. I don't know how all you mother/teachers do it. In Second grade we have been studying adverbs. This concept is always so hard for my students. They really struggle with this concept. So I thought I better make up an assessment to see if my students understand what an Adverb is.  I hope this is a good assessment for you and your students on adverbs. Please let me know if you were able to use it. Here is the link.... ADVERBS
Best of all it's FREE!!!

Neatest Math Website

I have a smart board in my classroom. I found the neatest virtual math manipulative site. We use this all the time to teach regrouping. You can move the manipulative's on the smart board and the kids can use manipulative's at their desks. I love this site. I hope you have a smart board like me and can find this site useful.

It is the national library of virtual manipulative's. http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibray.html

I love teaching Second Grade. Everyday before we go home we have a class cheer that we say before we go out the door. Last year our cheer was The Hive The Hive its great to be alive 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. We've worked hard, Lets go home, our work is done! Yippee!
This year our class cheer is 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, I think school is really great. 1,3,5,7,9. It's time to go I'm feeling fine.
I think this helps my students to feel happy before they go out the door.
My classroom is decorated in the bee theme. More pictures to come! :) Hence the name The Hive.
