Bed Rest Day 17...

Well, day 17 is the day I'm starting to go a little stir crazy. I know it's the best for baby and me but these four walls are getting a bit boring! I had daddy-to-be get some things done in the nursery and it's one step closer to being ready for baby. I LOVE Pinterest and found some really cute trees on the walls in baby's rooms. I asked the art teacher at our school if he would paint one for us. It turned out so adorable!!!

I have to say being off work I thought I was going to be worried about school and what was happening in the classroom. But I know my room and my students are in good hands!! I love my sub, she is fantastic.

The sisters sent me a few pictures and freebies to post for YOU! So here's a look at what our classes have been up too..

Three digit addition is in full swing. The students are using multiple strategies to help them solve the problems. Grab this freebie!

I really don't understand why I couldn't get this picture to fit and load the right way! Grrr
They also did a Solve It! This Solve It! can be found in our addition packet.

They have also been working on cause and effect during our Daily 5 rounds. We read tons of books during this unit, both fiction and nonfiction. One of my favorite books to read to kick off this unit is The Wonderful Happens.  We start off whole group discussing cause and effects and by the end of the unit our students are able to pick them out by themselves! Here's one cause and effect map that we use.  

That's it for now, I have to get back to my movies! Have a great Monday everyone!
