Two Hoots and A Holler: We're Lovin It!

Hoot #1
We have been working hard to make letter units to use in our classroom.  We just felt that our students needed more hands on types of activities to help them learn and remember letters and sounds.  This past week was the first time that we actually got to use them with our class!  Our kids absolutely LOVED getting to do all of the activities at our Ll Celebration.  Each child got to make his/her own glass of lemonade to drink.  They got to taste their lemon before squeezing it; that was one of the funniest things, I regret I didn't have my camera ready to snap a picture of some of those faces!  We graphed about our lemonade, we made a glyph about our lemonade, and we wore our ladybug hats home.  The hats were a HUGE hit!  They loved putting them on and "flying" around the room!  They are already asking what is in store for the letter Oo tomorrow on Fun Friday! We think that these letter units are definitely kid approved.  That means so much to us to know that our students are benefiting from the activities happening in our rooms!

So lately, I have become sort of obsessed with ordering teacher t-shirts! There are so many that I see on Facebook that are just TOO cute, and I think that I MUST have them!  Today, I got my last order of shirts, and I AM IN LOVE WITH THEM!   I had a friend make them, and she did a wonderful job.  
Made by Just 4 You.  Look her up on my Facebook Page.  She does EXCELLENT work!
 We have been to two blogger meet ups so far since we started our journey as Kinder Glitter Girls back in November.  Both of the meetups ended by having one last breakfast before saying good bye to our new friends.  Both times, we have worn matching shirts to the breakfast that we feel represent us.  We found the PERFECT shirt to wear to our next meet upWe can't wait to go to another meet up to be surrounded by such wonderful and talented teachers!  So in the meantime, we will keep our shirts hung up in our closets and wait as patiently as possible until the next blogger teacher meet up.  Hope it isn't too much longer...
HEY Y'ALL! Here we are at the Nashville Teacher Blogger Meet Up on our last day.  We saw these shirts, and we just couldn't resist!  Can't wait to wear the new shirts!

This Week's Holler...
This week's holler goes out to Heidi at Flipping For First! This sweet lady is a ball of energyOur backs are still hurting from seeing her do that back flip on the trampoline! You can see it too when you check out her blog!  We loved her editable Open House Handbook that she created! Since we started school on the 5th, we are definitely putting that on the list for next year!  No matter what grade you teach, this girl has covered the topic! We are so thankful for Heidi!
