Words Where? and a Wonderful Wednesday

I'm in such a good mood today for many reasons! First off, the sun is shining!!! And to think, we had snow yesterday morning; crazy Oregon weather!

Things are moving so fast for me! 200 + followers...wow. Thank you all so much! Love my bloggy buddies!
I also have sold a few of my Sentence Sensation packets. You don't know how thrilled I am!!!  I'd love feedback on my store/products please!

And yesterday I was contacted by a company, wanted to pay  me to put a small one line link ad in my blog! If you would have told me that someone would pay me for advertising when I started my blog, I would have laughed. I'm still in amazement over how my little blog has grown and in May will be my 1 year blogiversary!

Ok, so onto some teachery stuff! Speaking of word walls the other day, I remembered a word 'wall' that the kiddos absolutely loved. It was on the ceiling! Each word was from the 'no excuse' list and each word was printed on a star. The teacher tacked them to the ceiling (or you could tape).

Then it became a game. The class was divided into two groups. One person in one group had a flashlight and went against another person from the other group who also had a flashlight. The teacher turns off the lights and picks a word from the ceiling. The first kiddo to put their light on the word wins. You could give points or just have it for fun. Then they pass their flashlight on to the next person. The kids loved it and had fun learning.

You could do this for sight words, no excuse words, or vocabulary you are learning about in a unit. So many possibilities! Or if you have a few extra minutes in a day, great way to sneak in extra learning!



  1. Congrats on the 200+ followers! That is so exciting abut the advertising company. It's funny to think that your blog can open so many new opportunities and meeting wonderful people (like you!)! :)

    Cheers to School
