Have you seen Tom Turkey???

Here's a real quick post today people:
I will admit, I did not come up with this idea.. I stole it from someone at some point.  I've done it every year.  And every year I cannot wait to see what my turkeys will turn their turkeys into.  So fun!
Hope your Monday was a good one!  Have a great rest of the week!

November Math Journal Prompts-- common core style!

I don't know about you, but my kiddos love to work in their Math Journals.  We just recently started using them, due to our journals coming in so late (that's another story).  But-- since they like it so much I decided to create more packs to use throughout the year.  Last year I created 1 pack with intentions of continuing... well, you know how life happens... I didn't finish!  So needless to say, I have picked back up where I left off-- sorta.. and I am making a pack for each month.  One of my newest is the November Math Journal Prompts.  You can click the picture to check it out!
Here is a list of some of the common core standards addressed in the prompts:
K.OA.1 Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.

K.OA.2 Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.

K.OA.3 Decompose numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 5 = 2 + 3 and 5 = 4 + 1).

K.NBT.1 Compose and decompose numbers from 11 to 19 into ten ones and some further ones, e.g., by using objects or drawings, and record each composition or decomposition by a drawing or equation (e.g., 18 = 10 + 8); understand that these numbers are composed of ten ones and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones.

K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality
**If you're still here... I will give away the November Journal Prompts pack to the first 3 people who comment below! Don't forget to leave your email!! 
Have a wonderful Sunday!!!
P.S.- I have already added December and January.  Click the pictures to check them out!

Picture walk of my CrAzY week!

I don't know about you but I feel like I need a few more hours in my day... Thank goodness for Fridays! Can I get an AMEN?!?! I had my pop-in observation Monday, Doctor's Appt Tuesday, Pumpkin Patch Wednesday, must I go on... This is one tired teacher here! I am far too brain-dead to discuss anything too in depth. So.... I decided just to share a few pictures from this week!
We read this informational text on bats. Then, I filled in a tree map on my Promethean Board...
While they filled in their own.
I've been reading this fun book all week for my masters...  Did I mention how much I like to read stuff like this... (sarcasim).  I love to learn about how we learn... but I'd much rather be buying clip art, creating packs for TpT, laminating, and doing stuff for my classroom.

I did buy this during the trick or treat sale.  I have a few kinders that are REALLY struggling and need some help with letter ID and sound MAJORLY!!  So, I bought this little baby from Abby and began printing.  Well, I ran out of ink in the process!  But--- my hubby works for Dell.  So, I immedately texted him and told him it was an emergency that I have ink shipped to me that day so I could finish printing.. He just laughed!  Then, ordered the ink!
And of course I have to share a picture of my $40 dresser I bought at a yard sale... cough cough-- I'm proud!  It was super old and a yucky brown.  I sanded, painted and changed the handles.  And ta-da!!!  A cute little dresser for my sweet girl.
Finally, can you guess what we are doing next week?!?!

I hope everyone has a restful weekend.  I know I need it and I plan to get it!  Happy Friday!
