16 May 2017

I am here to tell you about Fit4Schools, a free health activation program from Sanford Health developed with WebMD.

  • Empowers children and families to make healthy lifestyle choices a habit
  • Includes fun free resources aligned to national standards
  • Has weekly challenges
  • Focuses on the Four Key Factors of Healthy Living: Mood, Food, Recharge, & Move
  • Includes fitBoost: brain breaks for the classroom

The site is organized into the four Key Factors of Healthy Living: MoodFoodRecharge, & Move

Here is a sample of their Mood lesson page, where you can find detailed lesson plans, free printables, and more:

Here is a sample of their Food lesson page, where you can find detailed lesson plans, free printables, and more:

I found these great food themed images from fit4Schools fb page:

I am a firm believer in healthy eating and always eat a fruit or veggie at snack times.   The kiddos get so excited when we have the same snack.  They say things like, "Oh, Miss Bohrer we are twinning!  We both have apples for snack today."

Here are sample images from their Recharge section.  We did the free slide show on energy level and completed the My Energy free printable recently.   As with all the sections, it was easy to do, check it out below:

The battery page is a wonderful way for students to be more self-aware of their energy levels.  I agree with my kiddo below, I know my energy level at home is in the red and that I need to work on getting to bed on time.

Here are sample images from their Move section, where you can lesson plans, printables and more:

One of the easiest things to do with your students is the fitBoost.  Your students will love the spinning, slot machine style, activity choice combos. 

I hope you check out fit4Schools for yourself and register for your free account, I did!  Parents and home schoolers can register, too.

New Farmhouse Decor Files Posted and a Sale!

08 May 2017

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

I have added a some more Farmhouse Decor to my store since my last post about my new classroom decor.   I even created a freebie for you.  Plus, you can grab all the decor on sale May 9th and May 10th!

Now is the perfect time to think about revamping your classroom for next year.  I cannot tell you how many complements I get on my classroom and how many teachers stop in to tell me how calming it is.   I used to have polka dots and I am going to be straight with you... it was a bit over stimulating for my autistic students (I am a mainstreaming classroom).   The burlap, the metal, and the black are actually perfect for me, too.  All those home decor items that I buy, but have no place for, now go into my classroom.  I cannot resits galvanized metal containers!

You can shop all my sale items, not just decor by clicking below.

Click on the covers to check out the packets.   Click {HERE} to check out my blog post with tons of photographs of my classroom and all the included links below.

This one is a FREEBIE:

You can snag it all in this growing bundle:

Spring Ideas for First Grade

03 April 2017

I found this adorable bunny in glasses pop art project through Pinterest.
When you follow the pin to the website, you will see it is in French.   I was still able to find the bunny template by clicking the pink writing that says "tete lapin a imprimer."  You will need to go to the actual website to download the image.   Click my screen shot below. 

To make the eyeglasses, I just googled eyeglass outlines and printed them on bright colored paper.   
I completed my display with the writing prompt freebie below!


Here is a close up image:

I hope you enjoy the freebie.  Here are a few other spring themed resources for you to check out.

Math Manipulatives and Webinar Resources

22 March 2017

Hopefully,  you just finished watching the math manipulatives webinar my friend, Anna (Simply Skilled in Second), and I did tonight.   We want to thank you for watching and for your great questions.  We both thought it would be easier if we wrote blog posts with links for you to some of the resources we shared.   

If you were unable to catch the webinar, you can still check out some of the resources we shared by checking out this blog post and then by hopping over to Anna's blog.   Or you can register and watch it by clicking the image below.  We have two freebies embedded in the actual webinar, so watch on your computer!

Our webinar focused on math maniuplatives.   So why do we use manipulatives?

During our webinar, we gave many examples of manipulatives and how to use them.  One simple manipulative I shared was these Hide Zero cards.  You can download them from TpT by clicking the image below.

I also discussed during the webinar my favorite teacher made manipulatives...LIMA BEANS.  I use spray paint and sharpies to create these.  They actually last a really long time.  

Here are some of the math resources I shared during the webinar.  You can check them out on TpT by clicking the covers.  All math resources are on sale!

You can only snag this Tens and Ones freebie by watching the webinar {Click Here}.
