Tomorrow is the #lastdayofschool but today there’s still time to have fun learning! Candy Land LAB day was a big surprise and so much fun! There was a challenge for each character. Jolly: Build the tallest gumdrop and toothpick tower that can hold a giant gummy bear for 20 seconds, Gloppy: Which candy bars sink or float?, Princess Lilly: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?, Lord Licorice: Build a bridge at least 12 inches across between stacks of books that can hold a fun size candy bar for at least 20 seconds, and King Kandy: design a brand new candy and create a poster to persuade people to buy it!

Oh my gosh state test prep for math was so fantastically disgusting today! Kiddos got their noses smeared with “snot”, then used their noses to pick up a review question to answer. I made a booklet to record answers, which were categorized by topics, with themed names such as Snot Rockets, Boogers, Goobers, Nose Nuggets, Bats in the Cave, and Nose Slugs. 😂 So they practiced everything from rounding to fractions to division and just giggled and loved every minute! Thanks @mirandatreagan and @_wadeking for the super engaging and gross idea! #thirdgradehallway #setthestagetoengage #teachlikeapirate #kidsdeserveit #madorinsmavericks #bestyearever

I got a 5 am text message from my teaching partner with this brilliant idea to celebrate #literacyweek by making a giant book cover the kiddos in our grade level could pose in... and now it’s done! She totally knows how to get me started on a project and she knows I can’t stop until it’s finished! 😆 #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #dreamteam #madorinsmavericks #masseysemojis #iteachthird #thirdgradehallway #happyclassrooms #kidsdeserveit

This is always a time consuming process (with lost of character-traits lists open in background tabs), but these name tags are my favorite January tradition. I edited the wonderful template from @miss5th ‘s tpt to reflect our school’s emphasis on #leaderinme #bestyearever #madorinsmavericks

Project Complete ✔️ So excited to see my kids on Monday and show them what I’ve been working on!
We had four #yogaballs rotating through students, now we have 14 thanks to my sweet mama! ❤️ I made the stands because even the four balls just floating around the room when the kids aren’t on them makes me crazy. These little frames will keep them in place!

These #yogaballs tho. Five Below is trying to make me think I’m losing my mind.
Long story: Mom buys 10 new yoga balls for my kiddos to go with the 2 I bought earlier in the year! YAY! I blow one up at home. It’s HUGE! Exchange 10 yoga balls for smaller size. YAY! Blow one up at home. Looks better. Take it and the other deflated 9 to school. They are smaller than my originals! Boo! Were the first 10 really too big? Go back to Five Below and buy one. Blow it up. Compare all three. Yes, it’s giant! But Five Below only has black in the two sizes I bought and neither is right. So confused. Blow up another of the “smaller” ones, and it’s just right! Turns out the ball I picked from the round two set just happed to be in the wrong box. 😖
Pictured: 3 is the original, 4 is the first set, 2 is the second set, and one is a different one from the second set. #yallgonmakemelosemymind

Did you guess... squares?! One for each kid?! BUT WHY?!!! #teaser #iteachthird #kidsdeserveit #bestyearever #madorinsmavericks

Ha! Today and yesterday’s project. Any guesses? Here are some unhelpful clues. 18 10” x 1” pvc pipe in each color, and 76 black 1” 90 degree elbows.

One of my kiddos had a surprise waiting in front of his house when he got home from school today! He’s my first student to master his multiplication facts this year! I saw this idea from @busymrs.b and it may be my new favorite tradition! #iteachthird #bestyearever #kidsdeserveit #bettertogether #madorinsmavericks

What a surprise today-our #classroomfairy decorated her door for the holidays! And we finally learned her name! #classroommagic #fairydoor #iteachthird #madorinsmavericks #bestyearever

#deckedthehalls a little bit after school to surprise the kiddos on Monday! Picture doesn’t do it justice, it makes my heart happy! Can’t wait til they see their names “in lights”! #iteachthird #bestyearever #madorinsmavericks

#classshirts are in! My teaching partner and I have totally different themes, but there’s a secret nod to each other in our shirts if you look closely. 😉 kind of like a Hidden Mickey. Thanks to my parents for funding our shirts this year and Massey “Fans” for hers! #bestyearever #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #dreamteam2017 #bestyearever #madorinsmavericks #masseysemojis #shesmyannaimherelsa #orviceversa

Well. Today was awesome. Day one in the books! So pumped for the #bestyearever with this lady!

Open House 2017 is a wrap! Forgot to post pics before, so this is after all the cute treats and handouts were gone! #bestyearever #madorinsmavericks #masseysemojis #dreamteam2017 #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #iteachthird

My #oneword for the year!
This word has been and will continue to be my focus in the classroom, but this year I'll also include this focus on my relationships at school and with family and friends.
