the making of an interactive door


OK I posted this a little early...
I am now going back and linking this up with my bestest buddy Tara for her 
WONDERFULLY Fantastic....


after you read about my door come back and click on the pic above
and 
head over to Tara's to see LOTS of cool Made Its











my mom had an interactive door
for years before she retired
and I have been doing them since I started teaching
we both used a chart tablet  or chart paper on the door.
I wanted something SUPER cute and decided to do it this way...
I am going to be honest...
a few years my class make-up was NOT conducive with an interactive door... so they didn't do it
BUT no fear... I try it every year with my kiddos and you can tell right away if it is going to work...
THIS YEAR it is going to work... YAY
I usually change questions or titles... every week or two.
I am so excited to share this with you guys and look forward to hearing what you have to say :)

and on a side note
it is somebody's 5th birthday today!!!

he started PreK last Tuesday and LOVED it!!!
I was a little nervous for him...
BUT I did NOT cry which was a feat in itself!!!
my little bub is growing up!!!
Happy Birthday BUB...
and poor baby woke up with a fever and runny nose...
so dinner plans have been canceled and a full day of cuddles and new toys are on the menu!!!


CURRENTLY September

It is late... I know I know...
BUT I am pretty sure you aren't 
even interested in what I did today...
and why this is soooo late 
so I will save you the details...

S.S. says .... this 100 Day Celebration unit has all of the items needed to celebrate the 100th day of school.  It has math activities, writing activities, three family projects, a headband, certificates and a craftivity.  SS even has several pictures of these items in use in her classroom so everyone can get an idea of how to implement these ideas.

 Shake it and Make it packet is SS's best seller. It is Common Core aligned and teaches the goal of decomposing / composing numbers less than or equal to 10.  It also transitions into teaching students how to represent addition within 10 with objects. It is a great whole group, small group or workstation activity.

BUT the last spot is for you
many of us put ourselves at the bottom of the list when it comes to our
career, families, kids, and what nots
sooooooo
I decided to make the last question
a LOVE YOURSELF SPOT
pick things you would love to accomplish this month...
things that bring YOU a happy heart
you have to be happy to make others happy and a happy heart is a good place to start
mine are to walk 33 miles in the month of Sept... I haven't walked at all in AUG... no excuses

20+ days of over 100 degree temps might be a good reason BUT for Sept... I am going for 33 miles

NOT FROM SCHOOL SILLY
but I am not going to bring school work home or walk or blog...
I might IG but I will try really hard not to!!!
