Happy Friday, Ya'll!
I'm finally getting into the routine of capturing my week:
I caved and bought a laminator this week. The school I was at last year had one the teachers could use for free (what a luxury!) This year I was missing it! I always read your blogs and see you talking about your personal laminators. To be honest, I thought they were super expensive. It turns out this one was only 28 buckaroos at good old Target!
I've been B.U.S.Y!
On Thursday I got to be Queen for the day!

I went to Target for a second trip to get more laminate sheets and
three bags of M&Ms for number *Two*. (What? I had to buy three bags. They were on sale.)
I ended up finding Pin the Heart on the Giraffe! Have I ever mentioned that I love giraffes?
Since today was the first day in February, I started using the game as a behavior incentive!
When I was in the checkout line, the mother behind me asked, "You must be a teacher."
We have been learning all about letter writing. This week I let my students pick a student from the "Pick Me Popsicle Sticks" to write to. We put them in the mailbox and are desperately waiting for everyone to finish before we read them!
We began our Reading Imagine It Unit 7 this week. We
have get to use these "basil-like" books to read our weekly story. It's a big deal in first grade because the weekly test format switches from first grade material to second grade material this unit. After two years of teaching it, I still get nervous for the first test.
How do you incorporate your district curriculum with the Daily 5 program?
This has always been a struggle for me!
