A GoNoodle kind of day

Can I just say, I love, love, love Classdojo and GoNoodle !! Separate they are amazing but together!!!!! Omg, they are awesome!!! 

At the beginning of the year, we as a class, sit down and talk about goals for behavior! We create the positives and negatives for Classdojo and we choose what they would like as the ultimate reward! 

They chose a GoNoodle day! I was ecstatic because my love for GoNoodle has transferred into all of my students!!! 

So they worked and worked and worked to meet their goal and when they did you would have thought they won the lottery! 

It was finally here! GoNoodle day !!!

I made a smart board sign to display throughout the day! They all got a GoNoodle t shirt that I made (thanks to the help of our awesome and patient staff center secretary and awesome mother of one of the little girls in my class), pencils and stickers! You would have thought they all received the best present in the world! I bought the pencils and stickers from the GoNoodle store! This is an awesome place to visit to get your GoNoodle necessities!!!

We took pictures and we did GoNoodle word searches, coloring sheets, writing activity about which GoNoodle champ they would be and why, and many directed drawings of various champs!

Here are the pictures of the class and their shirts and the champs we drew!!!

Look how happy they were!!

Cinco De Mayo

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!! My kids and I traveled to Mexico today! They made passports, boarded a plane and went to Mexico! Thanks to YouTube we were able to experience the take off and landing as well as walk inside El Castillo, witness the monarch migration, see the Mexican Hat Dance and see a bull fight. 

We learned about the Mexican flag and did a comparison activity with the American flag. We made a book about Mexico and Cinco De Mayo! 

We got our pictures taken and ended the day with Chips and salsa! 

So from all of us to all of you......
Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

May the 4th Be With You!

I love this day!!!!! My kids love this day! So as you may or may not know today, May 4th is Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you!!'

So of course to celebrate Star Wars Day my kiddos needed pencils and erasers. I got these at Party City!!

I also got a Yoda bucket with some mints for them there as well!!

Then we got our picture taken with a light saber!!

We did Star Wars math and puzzles as well as a directed drawing lesson of Yoda! They then had to write an opinion piece about whether or not they would want to be Yoda!!! Here they are in the hallway!!! I love their Yodas!!! 

To end the day they went home with star wars fruit snacks!!

So from our galaxy to yours............

Now here is my May Currently!

 Listening: I am listening to the Odd Couple while writing my many blog posts! There are so many things I need to post about so I thought i would try! I am still debating on whether I like the New Odd Couple or not so I keep giving it another try! I love Matthew Perry from his Friends Days so I think that's why I keep chugging along with it!

Loving: I just bought a brand new Bearded Dragon baby for my classroom! OMG!!!! He is adorable! I have named him Mojo after the awesome monster from +ClassDojo !!!

Thinking: I have so much to do and very little time to do it but honestly that is what I am always thinking!!!

Wanting: To actually finish al the blog posts I need and want to get done! I would also like to finish the 200 projects I have planned for this year! I know good luck with that is probably what you are thinking!!!

Needing: To go to bed but that is precious time wasting when I could be creating! I know Go to Bed! 

Truth: Ok, I am petrified and I mean petrified of monkeys and that is because of those horrible flying monkeys from the Wizard of oz!!! Yes, they scare me so bad that I have never seen the entire movie! I turn it off when the monkeys come on. I am scared of snakes and talking in front of adults. I can talk in front of kids all day long!!!!
