Crazy Announcement!!!!!!!!

          I open a store on Teachers Pay Teachers!!!!!! Yes, you read that right I'm crazy enough to open a store when I'm really new in the blog world, when I don't have many followers, but I really appreciate the ones I already have. In not so many words when not many know about my existence!!!!! So why I decided to open it, first because I'm tired of looking for the right things for my kids, I have bought lots of packets that don't cover the whole standards that we have, and of course I have to continue buying : ) And second and most important is that eventhough my kids are great, they are not native speakers and finding good materials for them is believe me quite difficult.
          Here is when I stopped, and started thinking, mmm... well if I put together all the activities that we have done, and that have proven to work, what would happen then??? Honestly I don't know yet the answer to my question but I had to give it a try.
          I decided to start with a packet about nouns. I believe that building a solid ground in grammar, while they are having fun is going to pay later as they become more independent and confident.

          If by any chance you're interested I would love for you to stop by and leave your opinion. Hopefully you are going to follow me in this new adventure!!!!! In the meantime I leave you some pics, please let me know what you think.

Currently March

While blog hopping, I have read many of these post. At that time I thought it was fun, but way beyond my reach. Now thanks to some great bloggers out there I can link to Farley's link-up!!!!

          Now for the three words: on Friday one of my sweet students gave me a St. Patrick's necklace, I put it on and other kids told me that I was lucky, of course I answered, I have the best students in the world. The reply from one of my girls - You're the greatest teacher of them all. She made my day!!!!! As for my friends they know they can count on me, and my husband says I'm one of a kind : )

Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies: Calling All 3rd, 4th, & 5th Grade Teacher Bloggers!

Lorraine from Fabulous 4th Grade Froggies is having a linky party for upper elementary blogs. I'm really excited this is my first linky party ever!!!!


Postcard Exchange

This school year we have to learn the 50 states, location, capital, abbreviation, nickname, motto, flower, and bird. I thought that it will be great if we could participate in a postcard exchange. I have read everything about them in protecher! So here I was looking for somebody that would be so kind to accept us, when I stumbled with Mrs. Kugelman group. She was really gracious to include us in so short notice. I was ecstatic, now it was time to work.

First it was hard for me to pick the postcard that best describe our beautiful city, it took me a while but finally I found one that I loved. Then with my kids we had to decide what to write, so they made some drafts and together we wrote the information that we wanted to share with the other classrooms. Finally I set aside some time to work on the postcards. I wanted my kids to make them as nice as possible, after all that was the way the other classes were going to learn a little bit about Mexico!!!!

By the way, we didn't receive a postcard from Hawaii, and one of my kids was eager waiting for that one in particular : (  If you live in Hawaii and want to make a kid really happy, please let me know if you are interested in exchanging postcards!!!
