Checking in on Room 219

Hi everyone! I am enjoying a relaxing Sunday here with the hubs. We are putting some finishing touches on the nursery, putting our feet up, and just enjoying time together! :) Hard to believe that we could have a little one to snuggle with, too, in 8 weeks or less!

I wanted to share with you a little bit about our first full 5 day week of school, and show you what we've been up to! There are lots of pictures coming your way. :)

We finished our "All About Me" flip books and hung them up! They look adorable and I am loving reading them. :)

We got our Reading Interactive Notebooks all set up! I use a combination of activities from this notebook by 24/7 Teacher and Erin Cobb's Literature and Informational Text notebooks! They are both great and help me cover everything! :) My students were so excited to learn about our first skill and glue down our first foldable: theme!

We successfully made it through a full week of grammar using Jivey's Mentor Text Unit 1! My students LOVE doing grammar this way, and they learn SO much from it!

We worked on our "Summer to Tweet About" writing and craftivity. It's a perfect first assessment for me to see where my kiddos are in writing, and they look adorable hanging in the hallway!

I was pretty excited that I survived a 5 day week at 31 weeks pregnant, with 3 volleyball matches, two of which I didn't get home until after 10:30pm! And, to top it all off, our air isn't working in our school! This preggo mama survived in maxi dresses and with Icees!

Have you been back at school for a while? If you're getting ready to head back, make sure you check our my Back to School Essentials Mega Pack! It includes goodies from the things I talked about above, and much more! Here are some happy teachers in action with my pack!

Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend, friends! :)
