Collective Nouns and a Few Pictures

 Well, I am not keeping up to date with my blog as well as I would like. I seem to stay so busy, and then when I get home, I am so exhausted! Anyway, we have been learning about Collective Nouns this week and I made an Anchor Chart for my kiddos to use throughout the next couple of weeks as we continue our lessons. Check it out! Remember I am no artist, but my kiddos think I am! They kept telling me what great pictures I drew.   Gotta love 'em!

  Sorry it is not very bright, my camera was getting low on batteries.  
I also have a couple of more pics to show. One is a bookshelf in my reading corner, I plan on buying some of those wooden or paper mache' letters that spell "Read" and cover them with pretty scrapbook paper. Then I am going to hot glue them onto the big pig hanging over the shelf. What do you think?

I have one more picture to share. This is where I keep my Write the Room Station. My students get a clipboard from the basket and a Write the Room paper and find designated words on the page from all around the room. This is one of their favorite stations.

Well, I hope to be able to blog more often as soon as I get in the "groove" of things in my classroom.

I have linked up with Kelly over at Teaching Fourths Fun Friday #2 Linky! Come on over and join in! You can find some great classroom ideas!


  1. I love your blog design and all of your pigs! They are too cute. I'd also like to invite you to my new linky called "Fun Friday." It is all about the fun things we do in our classrooms to teach our students. I'd love for you to stop by and link up!

  2. Love the paper mache letters that are all over Pinterest. It would look cute in your little corner with the pig. I say go for it!

  3. Thanks so much for linking up! I agree that the letters would look adorable in you room!


  4. Could you please explain your "write the room" station a bit more... Thanks!!
