Currently... Linky from Oh' Boy 4th Grade

I have decided to get involved with Linky Parties again after my nearly two-year hiatus from blogging. Farley from Oh'Boy Fourth Grade has hosted them for quite some time-- and I am excited about this current one because it relates to the holiday season!

I love how Farley is doing Random Acts of Kindness. Christmas is the season of giving, so my students are going to soon see how I am going to reach out to others around the school, from cafeteria staff to custodians to other teachers, assistants, and administrators. I am going to see what ideas they come up with as well, and I have other surprises up my sleeve to bring a smile to peoples' faces. My students will also receive what my other classes have received in the past-- my homemade, hand-painted ornaments with gems and other special embellishments.

This is certainly a special month, and with my classes this year, it will be no different.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Have fun in Walt Disney World- that's amazing. I love that you will get to work with a 3D printer- I've used one once but my school doesn't have one. I hope you have a fabulous holiday and that your creativity strikes you! I'm sure it will.

    1. Hi, Alison! I actually live just over an hour away from Walt Disney World. I don't know when I am going yet, but it's a tradition every year to at least make it over to EPCOT. As for the 3D printer, I am a Technology Club advisor and have only been for a few months. I cannot believe we are blessed to be receiving a few so early. I am excited the eighth graders in the group will be able to have one on campus before they "graduate" to high school! Thanks for the wish, too-- I am going to check out your blog now! - Victoria

    1. Hi, Katie! I am about to go check out your blog so I can follow you as well. I haven't received a follower in who knows how long... LOL... so I am very, very grateful for you! It most certainly takes a ton of dedication and creativity to maintain a blog, but I am looking forward to the adventure. Have a beautiful holiday season! - Victoria =)

  4. Welcome back after your break. I tend to blog in spurts--usually during the summer and winter. Fall and spring just get so busy.
    Looking forward to looking through your posts. It is nice to read content from other upper level teachers. I teach 6th grade reading in a middle school setting.
    Have fun with the 3D printer that sounds like an amazing piece of technology for your students to get to experience.
    Have a fabulous holiday season and enjoy Disney!

    1. Thank you, Sally! Nice to "meet" you. I love connecting with upper elementary and middle school teachers, so I am stoked! I hope to blog not as sporadically this year and have the best blog I can. =) The 3D printer experience will be amazing, too... it'll be a learning curve for me and probably quite a bit easier for the middle school students (as well as my fifth graders)!

  5. Our science teacher turned us on to these science activities for winter. I think you will like them. I like the mitten one the best. The site is http://monthbymonth.scholastic.com/teach.html. The cold weather unit is on the bottom row, right hand side of the page. Enjoy

    1. Thank you so much, Mark! I know about Month-by-Month and am very grateful you mentioned the site. There are tons of amazing ideas out there, and hopefully teachers take the time to use them because December can be a memorable, awesome month for science. =)
