Keeping Up With My March Resolution!

You read the title correctly! Who would have thought that, not only have I been able to keep my Pathfinder clean for 2 weeks, but that I would also be keeping my word on that Resolution, as this is my 2nd post in March?! Woot Woot! =) (I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is!) Lol.
It's been a crazy week at our School... on Monday we started our standardized state testing (ISAT... yikes!), so I've been out of my classroom every morning for the past 4 days proctoring for the 8th graders and let me tell you: I NEVER want to teach upper grades... Ever! Talk about a rough week! Sheesh! To top it off, there has been a terrible virus passing around our building and most of my misbehaved children were absent this week! It was like a vacation for the sub in my classroom! I'm sure I'll have 100% attendance next week... isn't that how it always works? Lol.

On a brighter note, thought this would be fun to do! My classroom is on board... hope you all decide to do it too, as it promotes the importance of fitness amongst our kids!

Not Very Good At This =(

OK, so as you all may have guessed, I'm not much of a Blogger. I've been so busy with all my IDEL, MClass Math, and TRC testing and Progress Monitoring that I've neglected my little Blog EVEN MORE! I know it's late in the new year, but you can set a Resolution at any time, right? Well, my resolution for the month of March is to Blog at LEAST once a week. Let's see how that goes! Lol.
As an apology to you, I will post a Freebie! I created this at the beginning of the year for my students' reading binders. It's an ABC chart that I use for Reading and Writing. It has REALLY helped my LOW readers and writers. I found all images through online searches. I know for sure there are some from ThistleGirl, but the others are random images found online. If you see an image that you created and did not receive credit for, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
Oh, and before I forget, I was unable to add the accent to the capital "ñ", so before laminating them, add the accent to it! =)
