February Rooted in Reading and Update


Look at my little buddy's cheeks!  Smith is quickly approaching 8 months old, and I am pretty sure he is the best baby ever. I know, I know I am biased!

So if you follow me on instagram or Facebook you know, Amy and I were working away for weeks on Rooted in Reading!  The shot below is the face I made when I finally got to the point that I knew I was going to be finished in a few hours!  I LOVE creating these units, but they are a beast!
Here's a peek in my office as well!  Instead of having a formal sitting room, we decided to make this space my office!  In our last two living spaces, I didn't have an office and my teaching/blogging stuff TOOK.OVER.THE.HOUSE.

Just to give you an idea of how I work (which is completely different than Amy by the way). I am the type that has to jump in the pool and stay in there. Do you know what I mean?  I can't get into a book and work a little bit, walk away, do some stuff, and go back.  If I am going to work, I am going to need like 5 solid hours at least!


So that being said, here is February Rooted in Reading!!! 


I am really excited to add this vocabulary game to our repertoire! I always love doing fun ways to practice our words in my room, so I am happy to have found a way to turn it into a game!


Here's is a sneak at some of the anchor charts included in this unit. I love, love making charts that the kids are involved in as well, but I have very limited wall space in my room so these are small enough they can stay up for reference!

The last couple of units we have really bumped up our expectations for asking students to analyze portions of the texts.  Isn't it amazing how much our kids mature through the year?


And last but definitely not least, aren't these art projects AH-MAZING! My kids get so excited about doing these, and I love the writing results that I get from them! 


If you want to snatch up our unit, just click on one of the pictures! It is on SALE for the rest of the night!!

  13. Employ the lottery system software. This is a software that generates numbers in random from 1 to 46 or whatever numbers are use in the lottery. It works just similar to the official PCSO Lotto Results system and has proven effective to win the lottery guarantee. This is very effective and has already been used by many lotto experts who won the lottery for several times.

  14. The Pinoy tv Channel and its respective definitions will vary from one company to another. No two companies really seem to look at the term in the same exact way. If we were to generalize, it is safe to say that small businesses can be viewed as companies that have fewer than ten employees and perhaps less than ten million in annual sales. When broadly defining medium sized businesses, it can be said that they are companies which have fewer than one hundred employees and perhaps less than fifty million in annual revenues. Again, these definitions will vary from industry to industry and even across companies within the same sector.

  15. The rock ballad 'Tum ho toh' which is sung by Farhan himself is a gut wrenching song sung with such palpable emotion that it takes one back to the rock ballads which Bon Jovi was so famous for. 'Video Badtameez Dil', which is a fun song, is full of energy and a great number which will make you sway and has become quite a popular warm up song with the bands in India before a live gig.

  19. Even you could learn how to do all of these things as well! A lot of people are thinking about getting lessons designed to facilitate piano learning for their children for instance because classical music is always a sweet tune to the ear. But then because kids are already very busy, they do not have time to go to music Tv Tonton anymore. But parents must not fret because there are available online piano lessons already that children and adult can use so they may have wonderful time learning whenever they want to at the comforts of their home.

  20. Keep your scalp and hair clean. Hot oil massage is very good for our scalp. Take the hot coconut oil and massage gently with the tips of your fingers. Keep it overnight and then wash your hair with a good shampoo. To dry your hair do not rub your Piya Albela rather use the towel and keep it around your hair to dry it. Try to avoid the use of hair dryer

  22. Another interesting drama movie is TV Tonton Drama. It is an innovative and breathtaking study of a character that is played by Orson Welles. He looks amazing in the role of the wealthy and powerful newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane. The story unfolds a series of flashbacks that refresh the memories of the viewers who know Kane. This is a great film to watch because the visual style is just stunning and inventive even today. The star cast of the film is also very experienced one. So, do enjoy this superb drama film and know about the life of newspaper tycoon-Kane.
