Freebie, March 4th Visual Plans, and More!

02 March 2013

I made this freebie to celebrate Dr. You Know Who's birthday using Cara's new fonts, Krista's adorable graphics, and The Digital Bakeshop's papers and frames.  Click above to download.  I just ask that in return, you follow my blog and TpT store.  

This week's visual plans were a bit tricky, since I will be using things from last year to celebrate Dr. You Know Who's birthday.  These things are not allowed to be sold or shared as per Dr. You Know Who trademark.  So, I found some adorable circus themed items and I had to leave some of the center links blank on the visual plans.   I really wish I could share from the items I made last year, but I am huge chicken about these sort of things.   I am not even going all out like I did last year.  I think the usage terms, just left me with a bad taste in my mouth for Dr. You Know Who.  Plus, we are behind on my Letter Writing Unit!

Just click the images below to download my plans from Google Docs.

*This plan book format is called "Erica."  Click here to check it out in Ms. M's A Teacher's Plan Store.
**My visual plans are inspired by DeeDee Wills' visual plans.


I am linking these plans up with DeeDee's.  Click below to hop over and check out hers! 

Some noteworthy packets I am using this week:

Here are some photos from the math centers we started last week.  We only had one rotation last week, so we have three rotations to get through this week.  All of these centers are from my 0-120 packet.  Click the pictures below to check it out. 

I noticed a few of my students struggled with reading numbers above 20.  I decided to make this assessment to see which number they needed practice recognizing.

Looking ahead....

This year is my first year teaching and your blog has help me figure out how to be incorporate new and fun ideas into the classroom! I notice you do a lot of literacy centers. I have five a week and I was wandering... How do you run those and/or fit all of them in? Do kids visit certain ones on certain days?
