Blogger Meet Up!

I was so lucky to get to meet up with some amazing bloggers!

I was so excited! {My husband was nervous... He is very protective and knowing that I was meeting complete strangers worried him. Of course, I told him that everyone was a teacher and it would be fine}

Here is a group pic {See all those beautiful blogger smiles!}

Lindsay from My Life as a Third Grade Teacher set up this Meet Up. {As you can see from the bags, we met at The Cheesecake Factory}

Here is a list of the bloggers that came {I copied the list of bloggers from Lindsay's blog - I hope I didn't miss anyone!}

Cara from The First Grade Parade
Sara from Kindergarten is a Hoot
Sandy from Fearless in 5th
Heather from Heather's Heart
Megan from I Teach. What's Your Super Power?
Rebecca from Ladybug's Lounge
Kristin from Teach n'Tex
Donna from Math Coach's Corner
Lynda from Curls and a Smile
Diane from Teaching with Moxie
Jessica from Welcome to Room 36
Jennifer from Teaching and LaughingKelly from Love N 3rd Grade
Barbara from Mrs. Balius's First Grade
Carla from Sewing Sassy in Texas
Lindsay from My Life as a Third Grade Teacher
and Me! :)

I made place mats and name tags for everyone -

I got to eat with Sara {Kindergarten is a Hoot}, Carla {Sewing Sassy in Texas}, Heather {Heather's Heart} and Lynda {Curls and a Smile}

(can you tell the sun was shining bright?!)

 It was so much fun to get to meet so many blogs that I follow! We sat at 3 booths and I got to visit the other tables and talk school and blogs with everyone! It was so much fun to hear how different schools do things so differently!

Of course we ate too! {and yes, there was cheesecake involved!}

I can't wait to meet up with these fabulous bloggers again!

100th Day!

Not too long ago, we celebrated our 100th day of school!

What an exciting day!

We found 100 Hershey Kisses (okay, we were missing a few, but I have since found them)!  We also counted to 100 using HeidiSongs

 (this is not my class, but aren't they cute?)

We also made a hat with 100 stickers and 10 strips of construction paper (each student put 10 dots on each strip - then we counted them all the way to 100!)

(Can someone please help me figure out how to turn pictures!)

And we made these 100 glasses (The students cut out the number 100 and we glued them to popsicle sticks)
(this is my son - isn't he cute?)

I also took each student's picture in front of this 100 Day Banner holding the Happy 100 Day sign you see in the picture above from Mrs. Gilchrist's Class - I made me a matching t-shirt - you can find it here)

We read Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten.

We wrote about what we would buy if we had $100 using the 100 Day Activities packet from Lidia Barbosa

And the last thing we did was make a 100 Day snack mix!  This is the note I sent home with my students ~

I do have one student with allergies, so I made sure I had separate snacks for him to count!

Whew! We were busy, but we had sooo much fun!

I am linking up with TBA
and Learning with Mrs. Leeby for some 100 Day Linky Fun!

Valentines Week! (and a Freebie}

We are getting ready for our Valentine's Elegant Party on Thursday!

Here are few pictures from previous years:

Our chair covers are just pink butcher paper cut and slipped over the chairs and then tulle that I have tied around the chairs in a bow (I do this for our Mother's Day Tea also).

All the students get dressed up in their best Sunday dress - {here is my little one from his party last year} -

 The boys escort the girls into the classroom and to their chairs. {They even pull the chair out for the girls}. The students use their best manners while seated and eating {which we have discussed at length}.  Then the boys ask the girls to dance and they dance to elegant {slow and classical} music.

It is a fun event! 

In the afternoon we sort our conversation hearts by color and count and graph.  I got mine from Carson Dellosa years ago, but here is a super cute one from Babbling Abby {click here}.

Of course, I had to decorate my classroom, and I made these from First Grade Blue Skies (these are from last year - I forgot my camera)

Click here to get it from her TpT store
and I had to make the cute Valentine craft from Miss Kindergarten {well, I forgot my camera - but they are super cute!}

We also made these cute Heart Men! {Whew! This has been a busy month!}

Want to make one? Click here to get your Heart Man!

With President's Day coming up, I can't wait to make the cute President craft from Erica Bohrer!

What are you doing for Valentines?
