Roses Are Red, Violets are Blue - I've Got Some Poetry Just For You!

Can I have two evenings of conferences, please?  Comin' right up! 

Spring conferences are "as needed" and you've heard me brag about this bunch a few times - so, needless to say, I don't need to conference with too many.  As much as I can't wait for summer vacation - I'm sort of dragging my feet.  You just never know what the next year will bring {Kids under tables, kids slamming doors, kids running away, kids throwing wet toilet paper balls up on the bathroom ceiling...} and this year has brought lots of smiles to my face.

I finished typing up my poems from our poetry collection and thought I'd share them.  Hopefully you find a few you can use now and at the end of the school year.  I have one or two for each month {give or take}.  I put mine on chart paper and put the collection below in a duotang notebook that the kids keep in their personal bookshelves to read during Daily 5. I blogged more about it {here}. 

Black and white cover {in case you're frugal like me} and the whole packet.

Clipart: Scrappin' Doodles, Cre8tive Hands

Front cover only - in case you like it colorful

Hope you can use them!!!!

I put The Hunger Games on my Kindle....you know what I'll be doing over spring break...

...and blogging
.......and drinking coffee
...........and having at least one all day pajama day
................and blogging
..................more coffee
.....................and building a fort or two with the kitchen table chairs
..........................and blogging
...............................and having a Nerf gun battle

Yeah - I've got plans.  BIG plans!

Happy Saturday!

I'm feeling pretty chipper right now - tiredly chipper - but chipper, nonetheless!  Loose ends are being tied up all over the place.  Pancakes were made by a super nice dad...BONUS!  Have I ever told you that I don't cook?  Not a thing. I burn water.  That's about all I have to say about that.

Report cards are completed.  Just have to look them over one final time and that'll be enough of that. 

All that's left are conferences and then it'll be smoooooth sailing! 

I keep hearing mention of these books...Hunger Games...ever heard of 'em?  I guess there's a movie out there too. I think I'm going to have to spend some time reading over Spring Break {which can't get here soon enough!}. 

I thought I'd share the activity I used for my observation with you. Hope you can use it.  We've been talking about Mental Images.  I teach the kids that mental images can be made using all of your senses. A great oldie but goodie for imagining what things might sound like {and look like if you don't show them the pictures until after you've read the page} is The Napping House by Don and Audrey Wood.  That sweet book is FULL of glorious sounds.  The kids have fun sharing with one another the different sounds they were imagining in their minds: snoring, purring, yelping, sighing...

So, prior to my observation we had talked about making mental images for what we might see or hear.  The kids were pretty well versed on what visualizing is.  At the beginning of my lesson we decided under which Cafe' header "mental images" should go.  Great discussion and the kids knew right away COMPREHENSION! 

Then we read this poem....{love this happy little poem}...

Click the Picture to Download!
I always have the kids close their eyes or look up - yup, I tell them that looking up sometimes helps me see things in my "minds eye" a little better.  {Sometimes I wonder if sharing my little quirks is such a good idea - I also tell them to flush the toilet with their foot, and tape a white crayon to our classroom window when we want a snow day}So we closed our eyes and listened to the poem and imagined...

Great conversation happened after that about what other senses we might use when making mental images.  I told the kids since my science teacher husband wasn't able to create a contraption that would allow for me to see inside their heads they would have to draw their mental images for me again today. {The other day one of my kids thought she solved this problem for us by suggesting we draw our very first ones...she was BEAMING with pride!} 

In addition to drawing what was hiding inside their noggins they had to circle the senses they used when visualizing.  Most circled the obvious and a few circled "hear".  Now, in my mind there is nothing to hear when reading that poem, but I'm not deeming that answer "wrong" just yet.  I wrote on those papers "Tell me what you heard and return to me" so we'll see what they come up with.  Any thoughts on what they might have been thinking? 

Would it be wrong for me to go to bed at 8:00 on a Saturday night?

Do You Wanna Know Who Won? {I bet you do - come take a peek!}

Hey Everybody!

The observation went wonderfully, my sweet little first graders pulled themselves up by their flip flops {although technically, it's March, and in Michigan it should probably still be their BOOTstraps} and did an amazing job.  Lots of big thinkers and hard workers.  My principal made me feel like a million bucks and I can now breathe....okay not yet, I still have pancake making {tomorrow} and report cards looming...but by Sunday - I'll be all smiles!!!

Speaking of smiles - I have three lucky friends who will find themselves grinning after they find out they've won this big 'ol giveaway. 

Without further delay....{There ya have it - go to it...get counting....}

Awww, I'm just foolin'...but I gotta keep the suspense at an all-time high so you'll have to scroll waaaaayyyyyy far down to find out just WHO the lucky three are.....

......Hey, I'm down here - HA!   Hope I didn't lose ya!  Ready? Are you really ready?  Are you really, really ready?

Wayyyyy Overwhelmed

Hi Everybody,

Wow is about all I can muster at the moment.  Wow.  My oldest was sick for a couple of days and being the nice boy that he is - he shared his germs with Momma and Daddy... {Which, after telling this story to my first graders, this morning one of them reminded me of this book}...

Click on the picture to listen to Robert Munsch read this book - SOOOO funny!

My guest teacher on Monday was so sweet but didn't quite do the job that was left for her to do and then they weren't able to get a sub until just before lunch for me yesterday{when I stayed home with the MAJOR sickies}....only a fellow teacher can know what that meant for me walking in the doors today. 

Evaluation that was supposed to be yesterday has now been rescheduled for tomorrow...AFTER an assembly, and NOT at the usual time we typically do it which will throw them off.  Combine that with the unusually warm Michigan weather...well,  I don't have a cotton pickin' clue what I'm going to get tomorrow.

Okay, so the long and short of it - I'll be annoucing the winners for my giveaway tomorrow instead of today as planned.  We have a charity basketball game that we're going to tonight {That I completely forgot about...no report cards for me tonight}...

So consider it another day to, ummm, to - uh, enter my giveaway if you haven't already or maybe blog about it, or cross your fingers, or think happy thoughts for yourself about being a winner, or just a time to leave me a comment about anything....

Honestly, this isn't a feeble attempt at getting more followers, or more entries, or anything like that. Just me being waaayyyyyyy overwhelmed!

April is Poet-Tree Month

Hi Chicklets,
This is going to be quick - I'm home with a sick boy who is on the mend so it's taking some doing to keep him on the couch.  I've got report cards to do and a messy house to tend to.  I wanted to show you what I'm cooking up.

April is poetry month - I love sharing poems with my kiddos all year long.  Kids love poems and you can work on so many skills when studying a them{spelling patterns, word wall words, inferencing, mental images, etc.}.  My kids LOVE the ones that make us giggle {Douglas Florian is a funny favorite}. 

Each year we create a "Poet-tree".  It ends up looking something like this...

I found this one on Pinterest which brought me to this blog {here} such AWESOME stuff!!!!

Once I get it all together I'll share mine with you.  I end up copying a leaf  for them to write their own poems on - either when they finish something early, during Daily 5/Work on Writing, or they can take one home with them and write one there.  When they complete a poem we attach it to our "poet-tree".  SOOOOO adorable!

Like I said, we work on poetry throughout the year by doing a poem every couple/few of weeks. I used to do a poem a week, but I have a hard time keeping up with that now that our curriculum is so FULL. So sad because we all know poetry is such an important literacy experience. 

One way we work on poetry is with our "Poetry Collection".  During the summer I copy the packet of poems, the cover, and put it all in a duotang folder.  I also have each poem on chart paper.  When I first introduce the poem we read it together, look for words we know, spelling patterns, etc.  We read the current poem as often as we can and they keep their collection in their "bookshelves" {where they keep their just right books for Daily 5}.  Then the kiddos are sent to their desks to illustrate their poem.  I have about one or two poems for each month.  I'm in the process of re-typing them right now.  Here's a teaser...
First Poem - Beginning of School Year
I'll make them available for you once I'm finished with the entire collection.  

One more thing and then I REALLY need to get to gettin' on my house cleaning and report card doin'...

Jeannie over at Kindergarten Lifestyle is hosting a linky party for you to link up, find new bloggers, and maybe get a few more followers yourself!  Once the linky party is over she plans on putting all of the linked up blogs onto a Pinterest board - what a great idea!

Go link up or just head on over and find yourself some more fantastic blogs to follow!

Giveaways Galore, Sunny Weather and More {Lots More}...

I really don't know what I'm doing on this computer - the weather is nuts, crazy, wild and wonderful for Michigan; this time of year.  It's in the 70's, sunny and downright GORGEOUS.  Every window in the house is WIDE open and I haven't seen hide nor hair of my chitlins since 9:00 a.m. 

Staci, over at Let's Teach Something is having a Grand-tacular giveaway to celebrate 100 followers!!!!  She asked if I'd like to participate. So sweet.  Since I'm not store-worthy {truly, that's WAY beyond me} I'm offering a 10 dollar gift card to TpT but there are LOTS of other girls offering goodies from their stores. 

You'd hit the jackpot if you won...

Head on over to Staci's blog and enter!!!

Here's the more part of my post - I came home from work yesterday, grouchy, tired and just plain happy it was Friday!  Then this caught my eye...

Hubby had surprised me with the new ipad3!!!!!  You have to know something.  I never get the latest and greatest of anything.  Either I get a hand-me-down, a version from three years ago, or nothing at all - so when I saw this I know I jumped up and down and started screaming.  I know I did.  That thing is wonderful.  I can't wait to find some great apps and really use it to its potential.  LOVE!

Here's more of the more...

Something else you should know about me.  I'm really not all that creative, artsy-fartsy, crafty, any of those things a teacher probably should be.  That's why I am SOOOOOOO in love with blogging. Now I'm that "imaginative/fun teacher".  Now my teacher-friends say "I need to get into those blogs".  Why yes, yes you do!
From Cara Carroll over at The First Grade Parade
Saw this all over the place on Pinterest
Does that door not just put a huge smile on your face?  Of course, I tried drawing his 'stache and brows at least 20 times, finally threw down my pencil, crumpled up the paper and went running to my parapro, you know the one who did {these}, and she whipped it up in 10 minutes flat. Thank goodness for HER!

We went to the sugar bush and tapped some maple trees...the sap was running.  We've gone on this field trip a ton of times and it's always rainy, snowy, cold and pretty miserable.  This year it was 70 degrees!!!!! 

Do you remember that I got one of these?

I'm not rubbing it in - just excited!  If you have any cool apps to share please do in a comment below.  Right now my new favorite is Hanging With Friends {not a teacher app} but I found a "Confer" one {lite version = free} that allows you to take notes in this format:  Strength, Teaching Point, Next Step. You can set up groups and once you create a roster you can import it into any group.  You can also put in a reading level.  Your latest conference shows up on the "home page".  VERY cool. You can email the notes to yourself or others.  I'm curious what the non-lite version is like...that's how they get ya! {Although the full version is only 9.99 so that's not bad} 

Do share!!!!

And don't forget to enter the awesome giveaways!

Teachers Taking Care of Teachers

Are you gearing up for a Happy Monday in the classroom?  I know I am, but there are so many who have been left without a home to live in or schools to teach in.  The 44 tornadoes that tore through 5 states on March 2nd have left many with losses that are beyond what I could ever imagine. 

Crystal over at Kreative in Kindergarten is organizing a way for other teachers to help those teachers/families who were affected by these tornadoes.  If you'd like to help out, please click on the heart below. 

In this story an elementary school principal is interviewed after the tornado.

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Honestly, I cannot imagine living through such terror and then moving past it. WE can help those teachers and their students rebuild. 

I know some of my fellow Michigan bloggers and followers live close by one another. If you'd like to drop some items {Extra notebooks, kleenex, bulletin board borders, pushpins, extra books you might have, notes/cards from your students or staff} anything...and nothing is too small} off at my school I would gladly package them up and mail them.  Just email me at hollywazy4@gmail.com.  Maybe you can gather others at your school to help out and we can send out one amazingly helpful, from the heart, package{s}.  Of course, feel free to send your own - I just know sometimes I have the best of intentions and then never make it to the post office.  Together we can make a big difference!

Farley, over at Oh' Boy Fourth Grade has created a Paypal account for you to donate to as well  and as thanks she created this inspirational poster for you to download for just a dollar. 

Don't just think about doing something....

Writing and a Freebie

Honestly, I thought about not blogging until I could give myself an attitude adjustment...but I just can't seem to whip myself into shape. Maybe I need you all to give me a "swift kick in the pants" as my Dad used to say.

I've had to close down shop in the classroom this week, and I *hate* doing that.  I have soooooo much I want and need to teach, yet assessments {the whole dang slew of 'em} are breathing down my neck.  Seems like I asked the kids to "get out their blockers" at least 10 times this week.  Poor things. 

And I'm grouchy.

I do have to brag though - my group this year is so darn tootin' sweet so it basically took 8 days to finish up all my F & P/Fountas and Pinnell {or Effin' P as most of us call them} assessments. I was able to do two during Daily 5 and two during writer's workshop each day.  My little babycakes were so on target; they made it easy this time around.  One kid did fall asleep in Yertle...but hey, at least he wasn't bugging anybody and could you blame him?!?

On top of assessments, after school, school-life has been nutty too.

I know a lot of you are already hot and heavy into the Common Core - we're on our way in Michigan.  Our district is doing a lot to get ready for the adoption and are doing a pretty good job at giving us the skinny.  I'm on the District ELA Common Core committee and was so impressed with the writing program our ISD {Intermediate School District} is developing.  Several of the teachers at our ELA core meeting are piloting units and shared some of their goodies.  One was this awesome paper that I tweaked {of course} and wanted to share with you.

If you do Lucy Calkins you're familiar with Small Moments {personal narratives}. At some point, early on in the program, Lucy has you make booklets for the kids to write their stories in.  I kid you not, I have tried implementing these booklets and they send me over the edge every year.  Basically, I find putting them together to be time consuming and most of all I find them to be a waste of paper.  The kids will write one sentence on each page of the booklet {if that, especially early on} and leave the rest.  Maybe I don't give them enough time - maybe I jump ship too soon, who knows?  This year I didn't even try them.  I just have the kids write their stories and then staple at the end.

What I do like about the thought process behind the three/four page booklets is it gives them a good sense of beginning, middle and end.  When I saw this paper I got goosebumps {doesn't take much, does it?}.  I was like "Where have you been all my life?!?"

Clipart: MelonHeadz and Cre8tive Hands.  Numbers: 3AM Teacher

Sorry it's in three different documents - my computer wasn't being very friendly this week either! Grrr! 

I started using this new paper right away this week and I have got to tell you - it's awesome.  So, like always, I have the kids tell their stories across their hands to their partners.  Beginning is their thumb, next three fingers their middle, and their pinky is where they wrap it all up - the end.  I have a poster of this but I want to make it cuter before I share.  Basically, the icons on each page match what's on the poster {one icon on each finger}. 

I put the paper in three different trays and the kids come up and grab which page they need whenever they need it {I like for them to get up every now and then during writing - keeps 'em focused longer}.  The first page is for your beginning where the two icons; one of a house and the other of a person remind you to include who, what and where.  On the 2nd page {and possibly third, fourth, etc. depending on how detailed they are - this why there are no page numbers} are numbers reminding them to include at least three events/details} and the last page has a gift and heart...wrap it up/heart of the story {if retelling}. This paper makes me happy.

Wanna know something else that makes me happy?  My boys are going to their cousins' house tomorrow for a sleepover and hubby and I are getting some much needed us time.  What should we do? Go see a movie?  Go out to dinner? Both?  You know what we'll end up doing?  Grabbing a quick bite to eat and running errands.  Why we always end up walking the aisles of Target or Walmart is beyond me!?!

Happy weekend!

Happy Monday and all That Jazz...

They're back....

I haven't had one of these in YEARS!  Drove up to the window, ordered it and what do you know they add whipped cream and a cherry to boot! Oh, no - no - no. I'm a purist.  Kid at the window didn't know that and he gladly remade it.  I really don't think he spit in it. I would have been able to see that right? Cuz I checked.  

Do you wanna know why I haven't been blogging? My mind is a whirlwind.  I just can't hunker down and focus in on any one thing.  Soooo, I need to give Farley a big 'ol hug to thank her for my "Get Out of Jail" card {Love this linky party}...because I'm pretty sure I belong in Blogger Jail.  I'll pull it together one day soon.. until then...

Good thing I re-read that before moving on to The Bachelor {Women Tell All...my FAVE!}.  The Poop.  To start this school year I walked into my empty room and found one lonely little creature sitting on a table.

I might have pulled a few pranks last year which just might have prompted a few people on staff to feel the need to have somebody or something keep a watchful eye on me.  By, my gosh, watching our janitor turn his vacuum cleaner upside down and pull out his screwdriver cracked me up to tears {Plug, unplug, plug, unplug} or the infamous POOP.  Honestly, I wasn't the one who started the whole poop thing.  One day it just ended up in my classroom and I never was able to find its owner.  Now, Mr. Plastic Poop drops in at various times and crazy places - of course when you least expect it.  {No worries - it's never when the kids are around!!!!!}  Mr. Poop has seen better days though - when I planted it under a desk I asked our custodian to fix he mistook it for a dirty pickle.

Laughter is good for the soul!

Go find yourself a good laugh - infuse it in your teaching, your home anywhere you can in your life.  A giggle does a body good!

Land Sakes Alive...

Land sakes alive...


Smellin' that soup... {Breathe in.....}

And coolin' it down... {Blow it out....}

Not a good week to have assessments to do.  No week is a good week.

 I wanna wear one of those hidden cameras for a whole day; and I want to wear a pedometer and something that can measure how fast I walk too.  Cuz this week was crrrrrrrrrazy.....you know where I'm coming from,  I know you do - that's why I love you!  Sheesh.  You know those days, weeks where you actually sorta forget to breathe.  You are a whirlwind and know if somebody was on the outside looking in they'd have the straight jacket at the ready because they are just sure you're gonna lose it at any moment. But you never do. You just whip around, do, do, do and go, go, go!!!  Imagine what that would look like with one of those cameras that attaches to your head...you know like one of those lights people wear when they go cave dwelling or spelunking?  What a hoot...

I've pretty much have learned helplessness in some key areas.  Cooking and grocery shopping to name a couple {Hubby does both} but I'm also, very much by choice, NOT very handy.  So when I accomplished THIS today...

Looks easy right?  I guess it should have been, but I usually leave stuff like assembling tents up to my husband. I did break into a sweat while putting up this cuteness but it was well worth it, wouldn't you say?  My kiddos are going to be SOOOOO excited to meet Yertle the Turtle.

I hope it's still intact when we get to school tomorrow morning. That, for surely, is questionable!!!

Oh tomorrow....what a busy day ahead.  We'll be making Cara's Seuss Juice  and writing about it.

Equal parts Hawaiian Fruit Punch and Sprite....yummmy! {Cara's idea - not mine!}
We're also having a Brown Bag Book Club Reading Celebration tomorrow - what perfect timing! I told the kids today that if Theodor Geisel were to walk in our classroom tomorrow he'd be pleased as the punch! 

We've been using our schema to make text-to-self connections and text-to-text connections too.  We prepared our brown bags today.  We wrote about our connections and attached them to the front of a brown lunch bag.

Click on the document to pick it up!  My lovely friend, Barb, made this for me last year before I knew about text boxes...

We're going to get into Book Club groups and share our connections, eat popcorn and drink our Seuss Juice. I'll probably be hiding out in Yertle because I know my kids are going to be hoppin' on pop tomorrow!!!!! {That's code for: WILD and CRAZY}

I got a couple awards while I was away...

Barbara over at The Corner on Character gave me the One Lovely Blog Award...awww, thanks!

And Miss S over at Just Teaching Kindergarten passed the Top 10 Blog Award on to me - so nice!

I will fulfill my blogger duties that go along with these awards this weekend.  That will take some thought and I don't have a brain cell left!!!  Thank you so much girls...so sweet of you both!  If you haven't checked out their blogs...head on over!

Deep Thoughts...

How many stripes does The Cat in the Hat's hat have?  We're having a debate in my class over today's March is Reading Month trivia question. 

Have a great Friday!
