Oh boy what a day I had today! I cried 2x...yes twice over a VERY DIFFICULT parent! I love my job, I love my job, I love my job. That is what I keep telling myself every day. And when I wake up in the morning I say a little prayer that this
Now onto my original blog post...just had to vent a
1. You pin on the toilet
2. You pin & get a charlie horse in your wrist
3. You pin while you're supposed to be listening to your husband
4. You pin in bed while under the covers so you don't wake up your husband with the light on your iphone.
5. You're blogging with one hand & pinning on your phone with the other.
Yes, all apply to me...I need help!
Seriously, now onto Daily 5 writing.....
Here is a heart map that I created....feel free to "pin" & download for FREE!
GRAB IT HERE FOR FREE!
And here are some pictures of what I did with it to use during Daily 5.......
This is one of my future Illustrators filling up her heart map with all the things she is interested in...all her favorite things.
I should have done my own first & I will next year but I did a mini lesson on what I would put on my heart. I told them I should be able to look at their heart map & be able to tell everything I want to know about them & what they are interested in.
She did a better job than I would have done...look at this perfection!
Another great heart map! You can use these perfect example to show your students what you are looking for. I used some from Pinterest but they weren't as good as these :o) My student's tuck their heart maps into their monthly writing journals & now they have a ton of prompts they can use....ownership friends...it's all about giving them ownership.
Now on to promote my oh so cute Halloween addition & subtraction center games that I created.
Check out this addition game in action below!All you need is one dice (die?) & I used some some spiders & bats I had for the game pieces. Print on cardstock, laminate, cut & TA-DA! I just gave my kids a fun learning game instead of boring old flashcards. I am planning on creating addition & subtraction games for every season with sight word center games as well. With the response I got from my kiddos, it's well worth my time & will be used for years to come! Who says they can't learn & have fun at the same time! Let me know other centers you would be interested in!
Here are some screen shots of the Halloween Subtraction game I created using Thistle Girl graphics!
