Pirate Freebies has definitely been a LONG time since I posted on my blog.  I have really enjoyed my time off this summer, and I have not thought about school at all since last week really.  Since I have been away for so long, I wanted to offer a couple of freebies I created for my classroom.  I have a pirate theme going on, and I created some number and color posters to go along with my new theme.  Just click on the picture and away you go to them.  Enjoy!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 are some freebies!

Hey fellow bloggers.  Hope your Wednesday was good...I know mine was because only 2 days left until the weekend :)  I was doing some things on my blog, and I realized that some of the freebies I posted earlier in the year were not there anymore.  Not really sure why, but I am going to repost them for next year.  One is for Halloween, and the other is for Valentine's Day.  Not very useful now, but download and keep them for next year...that is what I do with half the amazing things I find on other people's blogs.  So, click on the picture, and you will find them!

Nouns of Fun!

Chicken In The City (nouns)

Earlier this week I introduced the concept of nouns to my students.  To begin the lesson, I read aloud the book Chicken In The City by Liza Charlesworth.  It is a great book to use when you are teaching nouns to your students.  I read the book once just to introduce it to my students.  I then introduced the concept of nouns by discussing with them that nouns are all around us.  They are people, places and things that are in our world around us.  After our discussion, I read the book again, and we stopped after every page or so and created an anchor chart using the nouns seen in the story.  My students LOVED this activity, and our final creation is now hanging in our room for them to refer to for the rest of the year!

Great Technology Blog

Hey fellow bloggers.  I have the wonderful opportunity to attend the NCTIES conference in Raleigh, NC today. As I'm listening to the keynote speaker, he has informed us of a wonderful website/blog that I have not heard of. It is called "Free Technology for Teachers", and it was created by Richard Byrne.  This is an amazing site you can follow that gives FREE resources and lesson plans that incorporate technology into your classroom. Another great resource to use (that's FREE) I have found is Tagxedo.  It is a very neat website that allows students to make word clouds about a topic.  You can pick the shape you would like your word cloud to be in.  Some students at my school just made some whales that were fantastic!!!  I strongly recommend you check them out!

So I am super excited to see the 100th day of school come next Friday.  In lieu of that, I have created a quick 100 words on the 100th day activity.  I created this based upon some of the concepts we have been learning about in our classroom.  Hope you can use it.
