October 4, 2013


I literally thought I was going to D-I-E Tuesday afternoon from being overwhelmingly stressed. I was painstakingly wishing for Friday...and now it's here!
If you're wondering what got me through the week....I came across a bible verse in my quiet time that could not have been anything less than God speaking to me. So if you are in need of some reassurance, keep on reading!
My whole attitude changed and my week ended GREAT!
Here's a peeksie at the anchor charts I used this week. Have I ever mentioned I LOVE anchor charts!?
I absolutely adore my kiddos when I get to work with them in small groups. We talked about non-fiction text this week and I had each group prove the book we read was non-fiction. Even my low babies could do it. Proud teacher-mommy moment!

To get in the October spirit, we made a "battivity"! Bats at the Library is a great book for character/setting.

Here is one of our anchor charts in action. We were going to search through magazines for pictures of hot and cold objects, but we got a weensie bit out of hand earlier in the day and the mean teacher wasn't sure we could handle it. So we came up with our own instead!

Last but not least, we are finally supposed to be getting some cooler fall weather here in Texas this weekend which only calls for some decorative leaf painting art for our bare tree in the hallway!
Happy Fall Y'all



  1. Love your bativity! I've never seen that book before. I will have to find it. It would work great with my plans for next week! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I always enjoy your pics on Instagram and now I am your newest follower on your blog, too! So glad I discovered your blog from the Five for Friday Linky.

    I am sorry you had a tough start to your week, but I am glad it turned around for you!

    Small group teaching is my very favorite...I always feel like I am reaching them so much faster! Plus, I feel like I get to know them so much better! :)
