It's been too long!

So with the holiday season approaching and last minute shopping, preparing, celebrating and closing up things at school, I have been soooo bad about blogging!  I did want to share some Christmas cheer though.  We had a closing staff meeting before Christmas break.  It was an early release day so many classrooms had pajama day.  Well to lighten things up, little did our principal and staff know, a few of use were planning a "Flashmob" for the meeting.  It was sooooo fun and now I want to do it over and over again.  The videographer did not catch the beginning, where our music teacher raised her hand and said, "I have a question about last Christmas".  Then que the music.  Check us out.

I'm throwing a linky party!  Here are the rules:
I'm looking for your favorite IPAD app that you use and how you use it.  Maybe you use one in your daily 5 rotation or during math?  Let me know the app you use and how you use it!  This will be FUN!
Make sure you copy my linky button onto your blog and and link it back to me so that we can spread the word.
I will also feature the apps on my blogs weekly.
Also, please follow me and I will follow you :)

Martin Luther King

I've been working on trying to find appropriate books that my teachers can use to help teach the common core and integrate ALL subjects.  Therefore, I am going ahead and throwing out this "Follow the Common Core".  This unit pulls language, writing, and social studies all together in a bundled mini lesson.  Hope you enjoy!  Check it out here at TEACHERSPAYTEACHERS.

Snowmen at Night

The specialist at my school, art, pe, music, science, and me (media) are doing a "Snowmen at Night" theme this month.  The children are loving it so far.  PE is doing "Snowmen games" based on the book, Science is talking about snow and it's components, Art is working on symmetry with snowflakes, and Music is working on snowmen songs.  Looking at Common Core, first grade and second grade are working on Opionion writing.  Therefore, in Media we are going to look at the different "Snowmen" books and tell our opinion of which is our favorite.  I also love the ideas on Scholastic's website.  Here is a circle map from there that I am using to make predictions about the book.
