pumpkins, prepositions, and poems

So as you can see... life is getting better...
I vented and so did others...
isn't it always nice to know you are not alone!!!
BUT WHY on EARTH do you want someone in your personal Titanic with you???
OH WELL we are sinking together and it is nice to know the LIFE preserver store called and they are restocked!!!

OK so what did I do this week...
well let me see
I had some meetings (can't even remember what they were... faculty, data, grade level, and at risk, and one more... )
I had some data collecting and documenting... ( science, reading, writing, and math...OH MY)
I had some grading... all of the above mentioned and add in spelling, english, social studies.
I had some disciplining... enough said (ok maybe not... I have signed more planners this year than I have in the last 5 years combined) I have high standards maybe BUT... bad habits established in previous classes need to be broken YES!!!
AND to top off all of this... I GOT IN A GREAT LESSON TOO!!!
*~*~~~~~ confetti ~~~~*~*
and here it is
thanks to Kenoyer for the inspiration...




 well I hope you likey!!!
we also did some other PREPOSITION activities
We LOVED watching this

I know it has some errors... BUT the idea was to get them hooked into Prep PO PREPOsitions...

we also did a sorting activity with these

if you are curious about where I got the POEMS
are ya are ya???
well that book recommendation came from Kenoyer too!!!
here it is... mine is on the way...
this one is for Texas TEKS

looky lou!!!

they have it for common core too

it is for grade levels k-5 and
it has e-book versions too
and those can be grade specific...
BUT I suggest getting the whole shabang
because it refers to other poems in the other grades...

OK is that it???
is it...
I think so!!!


  1. LOVE that song!!
    and I'm glad life is getting a little better...one fo our grade level meetins this week, our admin asked us to tell them what is and isn't working...I told them...
    having meetings EVERY day isn't working for me..lol! I think they actually heard that a lot (go figure), so hopefully...they will listen :)

  2. What a great idea! Thanks for the book recommendation.

  5. WOW! The pop up pumpkins are very creative. Setting it up so they write sentences and then a poem is an excellent idea. Students are so engaged by activities like that and the lesson is memorable for them! Thanks!

  6. This is such a great idea for teaching prepositions! I'll definitely have to try something like this with my students. Thanks for sharing!


  7. I love the ice cream scoops venn diagram. What a cute and clever way to do that! Bet the kiddos loved it!!!

  8. I love the pumpkins! I have taught a similar lesson for a few years using a house, but I love the pumpkin idea!

  9. I noticed the book, Big Words, on your desk. What are you using it for? I just checked it out of my school library this week, too.

  10. Love it!! Our mentor sentences focus this week was prepositions! We'll be stretching prepositions into another week. Thanks for sharing this.

Also, because you love a good Linky party ;) I've "Boo'd" you at my blog. All you have to do is link up your favorite October activities...like the ones you just shared!

  13. Love those pumpkin prepositions. I like the idea of Poetry Friday. It's a Hot Spot for our school, this is a good idea. I don't think I could do it every Friday, but 1 Friday a month would be nice.

    Speaking of breaking bad habits from previous teachers...I have a student who was Home Schooled. HUM...needless to say it's been a serious CHALLENGE. Plus, last year one of our 2nd grade teachers left in December and they put a sub in her class the rest of the school year. The results...Not pretty.
