Currently Teaching....and Anchor Charts

Happy fall!! September has flown by and this is what we are currently doing in second grade! Scroll down for our anchor charts:)

Morning Work:
This is the third year I've used this and I still enjoy it! Third grade teachers also use the third grade packet and they enjoy it too!


Phonics is something we picked back up this year. I'm hoping it will eventually click! There are always those holes from first grade so I'm hoping to fill them in with a quick exit ticket each morning. I also put these cheat sheets up so they can choose a blend, digraph, etc.. or else you may get some WILD combos. 


I swear by Jessica's stuff from Second Grade Nest! She is amazing!

Skill Focus:
This resource is great! We made a collective noun class book yesterday with this unit and they turned out adorable! I wish I could upload them all. It was a fun way to end our 4 day week.


This is the first time in 3 years of teaching second grade I've felt confident in teaching narratives! It really breaks it down!

We are on Module 2 of Eureka Math which is measurement!
It can be found HERE. We supplement it with ZEARN.ORG. We just started using it and my kids are loving it!


This has kept me focused! 

Kids think they are doing less work since it's only a half sheet:)

Stick a Fork in Me...we're DONE!

Found this in my drafts from May:
Tomorrow is my last day... As crazy as this school year was I really enjoyed this class....all 25 of them! 

What a rotten group!

Yesterday we spent the entire day cleaning the room and getting everything packed up, now that it's done we can spend the rest of the day enjoying our friends!

We did a couple of memory books!

This one seemed to be the most favorable!

We ended by doing a self-assessment. They were pretty on target!

Fri-nally (Late Post)

With only 6 days of school left its starting to seem unreal that SUMMER can be this close! I saw a lightening bug last night and that gave a bit more realization to the fact! Today is the last day of my college student math push-in. We are celebrating.

*Forgot to post Friday

Is this school year almost over? Here's what I'm currently up to.

Reading: Jessica's stuff is AMAZING! I buy them all!



I highly recommend all these resources for your teaching needs!

For writing I do my own thing. I'll share that when I'm done with it:) 
Social studies we are doing maps and in math we are sticking to our Eureka math! 
Happy Monday ya'll!

I'm been soooo busy this fall. Its insane! I've started an online boutique called RiverTown Boutique and it has taken my life to get it together! FINALLY, after months of planning, purchasing, booths, and paypal invoices we launched our first site!! check it out!! readers get 15% off their purchases with the code "teach" good until New Years Day! ENJOY!! Spread the word:)

We are also looking for blogs to advertise on! We are looking for sites that get over 5,000 hits a day, that specialize in teaching or fashion. Most of our clothing is conservative enough to wear to work. It is also AFFORDABLE! YAY! If you know of any please comment:)

Getting Fit Friday

I've linked up today with Christina at Bunting, Books, and Bright Ideas for:

I was so excited when I saw this so I could share this wonderful black bean salad (or salsa) recipe! My mom emailed me this so I'm not sure where the original came from.. But it is an amazing summer time recipe. It's so fresh, clean and bright and would be a great addition to tacos or a taco salad. I usually eat it with just corn chips! It's something you can never just have one bite of, for sure.
I've never taken a picture of mine, but it should look similar to this! YUM!

What you need:
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
1/2 cup red or sweet onion, diced
1 can (15oz) corn, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
S & P to taste
tortilla chips
1. In a bowl combine peppers, onion, corn, garlic and cilantro.
2. Add olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste, and toss.
3. Add black beans, toss well and serve with tortilla chips.
 This is better when it can sit over night but if you don't have that option at least make it in the morning so it can settle together. The flavor is so amazing and addicting and best of all It's CLEAN!

So once again I'm blogging from the APP which doesn't let you hyperlink text.
Copy and paste? See you there!!
