Five for Friday, Winter Fun, A Cell Phone, Super Genius, and a Little Love

{1} Winter Art
We're wrapping up our snow theme this week, but still enjoying our classroom art.
16 students?...said no public school teacher ever:(  The rest of these cuties are on another wall!

{2} Snow Day
We had our annual "snow day" (a.k.a. scraped ice from the local rink), California style. Yep, these three pathetic hills of snow were more fun than a barrel of monkeys.
Our friend "Snowy". Don't judge.

{3} Cell Phone
Wow, it happened! I thought I might make it to retirement before a cell phone popped up in my kindergarten classroom and became a distraction. It somehow kept finding its way out of the owner's backpack!
I'd been told this day was coming. Forth and fifth grade teachers at my school deal with it quite frequently.
But even I couldn't resist capturing this special moment in history:)

{4} Super Genius/First Words
I discovered a new game over the holidays and it is truly my favorite way to practice CVC words now. The engagement rating is OFF THE CHARTS! My students LOOOVVVVE to play Super Genius/First Words.
There are actually several versions of this game, but we play "Face Off", which is just like the game Spot It. There is always one match between any two cards. We play as partners, or in small groups. Simultaneously, two cards are turned over. The first player to find the match calls it out and points it out. We all win, because we all work so hard on decoding! You can find it at Amazon, HERE.

{5} Love is in the Air
My vintage chalkboard is taking on a simple message this month. 
Less is more (or lazy?)

We will soon be getting ready with some "hearty" decorating. For more info on these photos, hop on over to HERE.

    1. Thank you Amanda! The chalkboard was so quick and easy compared to others I have made, but sometimes less is more :)

  4. The reverse lookup cell phone technique uses the latest technology to find information. gsmcamp

  5. Also if you want to control the amount you talk over your phone, a prepaid cell phone is the answer as the connection will be disconnected once the prepaid talk value is over.

  6. When you are in search of a specific phone, whether it is for Verizon or another carrier, it can be tough to find the one that you want. Most of the time carriers will have specific phones that they offer for their contracts and then different choices for prepaid. Cheap Verizon Phones For Sale Without Contract
