Monday Made it October

Yay! I love MMI and 4th Grade Frolics for hosting! Today's Monday Made it's are student projects!

First, is our conference project. This is the 2nd time I have used it and I love it! I got this idea last year on pinterest. Check it out here. Such a great idea and my kids love to be creative!
Here's what's included:
-Favorite Book & Info about it
-Math goals, strengths, and challenges
-Reading goals, strengths, and challenges
- 5 things I like about 5th grade
- Bucket list of 3 personal goals
-Scores from our testing

Didn't they turn out so CUTE?!

Creepy Contraction Houses: I love doing these in October. The teachers I student-taught with showed me this fun project! Simply get a Haunted House coloring sheet. Have student cut windows and doors so that they open partially. On the outside they put their contraction and on the inside they put the 2 words that make up the contraction. Love how festive these look!

That's it for today! Hopefully, later this week I will post my students' Explorer projects which turned out great!

1 day left until conferences! Can't wait to see more Monday Made its!

Can't Believe it's already October!

So I have been majorly slacking on blogging! The beginning of this school year has been crazy and busy and I'm finally making time for my blog.

Even though I am a few days late I am going to add my October Currently from Farley's blog.

Listening: My dogs are going crazy outside this morning barking at anyone and anything. I think it's the highlight of their day!
Loving: I am so excited the 80s have finally left us. I want to get our my comfy boots, sweatpants, and scarves! (And yes, I probably have over 30 scarves, so I need to start wearing them!)
Thinking: I should really be cleaning my house instead of watching this NCIS marathon on TV. Hmm.. wonder if that'll happen?
Wanting: I want to go shopping for new fall clothes since the weather has changed! Old Navy anyone?
Needing: Can't wait for my 3-day weekend that is coming up after conferences this week. Much needed for everyone.
Treat: I am obsessed with Reese's candy. We can't keep it in the house for more than a day before it disappears!
Well that's it for today. Hopefully, I'll be back real soon! I need to get back in the habit!
Happy Weekend!
