Classroom Happenings

Hey y'all...happy Sunday!
I hope everyone is enjoying their 3 day weekend..as for me..I'll be heading to work at 7:15 in the am..armed with all the cute MLK activities I have accumulated from my bloggie friends!
Thanks a bunch, peeps!

So here's what my Firsties have been up to...
We have been learning all about inventors and inventions..so when I asked my friend Alisha to give me some fresh and new ideas she directed me to The First Grade Parade where I found these adorable light bulb anchor charts. 
Too cute!
Please forgive my Blackberry photos..and yes we are still missing two inventors; the Wright brothers and Thomas Edison will be added this week. 
After learning about the inventor, my kiddos had to write about them...I love first grade writing!
I also {puffy} heart the progress they have made!
love the drawing...as for the penmanship..well..it needs a little work. 

During my ESL time this week we read The Mitten by Jan Brett and made this story map.
As well as some other uber cute mitten activities..let's just say we had a blast! I'm so proud of my sweeties..they are being little sponges when it comes to learning English...LOVE!
 This idea again comes from Cara...thanks girl for being such an endless source of inspiration!
The little pictures are from Erin at Creating and Teaching {such a cute blog!}..we also used these for a sequencing activity that I forgot to take pictures of..oh well..you can find the printable at Erin's blog here.
If you haven't read The Mitten with your class yet..you can check out my Marvelous Mittens post for more ideas and links to some really cute stuff!

So that's it for my teaching week, now for some random stuff..I just realized that I have no pictures of myself on my blog {weird, right?!}..I'm usually behind the lens or the cell phone {in most cases} thus no cute pics of me..but I LOVE this picture taken of hubby and I..so I thought I would share it with the world! Ha!
I usually don't dress this fancy everyday...but in December my little 15 year old sister had her debutante ball..thus the reason for our formal attire. I absolutely adore this picture of my handsome hubby and I..and I most definitely love dressing up! ;)
This is my little sister Valeria...isn't she beautiful?!
Love that girl!
That's it peeps, I hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow..please think of me when you are in your pj's enjoying a cup of coffee while blog stalking. I'll be dealing with 15 little energizer bunnies...that keep going, and going, and going. Oh boy! 
Monday...here we come!
