These are a few of my favorite things

Jodi over at Fun in the First Grade started a linky party and I couldn't help but join. I know that everyone is visiting for the FIRST time so please click follow on the right. I would love for you all to learn more about me and what's going on in my classroom.

 The following items are things I can't live WITHOUT!!!

1. Ginger ale

 This became a favorite of mine since I am no longer allowed caffeine.

2. Gatorade
After ginger ale this is my go to drink. I drink Gatorade like it's water. That's something I need to change though, I'm sure a little water won't kill me.

3./4. iPad

How else am I going to play

 My life is also planned on this thing. NO more paper planner for me!  SIDENOTE: Why can't I get blogger on my iPad? If you know how please explain to me what I'm doing wrong.

5.Cole Haan Sneakers
I have this pair in black and brown. I buy two new pair EVERY school year because these are the BEST shoes in the world to chase firsties around all day. Plus they look super cute with everything!

6. Sharpies
You aren't a real teacher if you don't love these markers!!! I mean really who could resist grading papers in such pretty colors? NOT I!


How else am I supposed to keep in touch with the world?

8. Coach Carry All Bag

Gotta love this bag because numbers 1-7 can all fit inside and because it's so CUTE!!!

9./10. House/Real House Wives

House is BEST show EVER!!! I swear I would love to have a doctor like him. Everyone says he is crazy BUT who cares as long as he figures out what's wrong with the patient.

Real House Wives- Drama Drama Drama- Yep that is the ONLY reason I watch any of the House Wives. I love their drama. Better them than me!!

There you have it people! Those are a few of my favorite things, hope you enjoied!

100th Day of School

Ok, so the 100th day of school fell on Valentines Day which I know was two weeks ago. However, I couldn't think of a better post to start off with. I read what seemed like millions of blogs on what different teachers were doing for the 100th day of school. So lets just say I had PLENTY of activities to last us the WHOLE day.

In the morning when students came in we started off our day with a journal "My favorite thing about the first 100 days of school" from Rachelle over at What The Teacher Wants.... The students loved this. They wrote so many amazing things. They even refreshed my memory with some activities I had forgot all about.  Then we decorated our 100th day of school crowns and sun glasses. Both of these items were purchased from Really Good Stuff. The students LOVED it!

We also wrote 100 words and displayed them on our classroom door!
The students also tried to guess how far 100 steps would take them. Many of them guessed they would end up on the third floor. But to their surprise we didn't even make it to the end of the hallway!

The last activity was the one I LOVED the most! We made a portrait of what we would look like if we were 100 years old. This idea came from Deanna over at Mrs. Jumps Class. After we finished I hung all of the pictures in the hallway. Not only did the principal compliment their work, she also took a picture of the board and added it to the school wide newsletter!!!!

Over all we had a great time! Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas.
