These Are a Few of my Favorite Things...

Hey guys! I am linking up with The Teaching Trio to bring you a few of my faves for the week!
1. I just started using my Exit Tickets on Monday and they are a HUGE hit!! I love how the kids get ready to go quicker so they can get their ticket done. So far, I mean it has only been two days but, everyone of my students has been able to get their ticket done before leaving the room!! This is something I never thought would happen. I thought it would be like skinning teeth to get some of the kiddos to get their stuff together in time to do their ticket, but WOW. I have been so impressed!!

2. It has been pretty cold lately, but tomorrow is supposed to be crazy cold!! We got the text for a 2 hour delay just a couple hours after school was out today! I sure love 2 hour delays:)  They are even jean days for us! I will miss my prep, but it's worth the extra sleep, especially right after break! These kids are wearing me out like it's the first week after summer break! 

3. We started blogging right before break. Our first blog was about what they would ask Santa if they could call him. It was so much fun to read their comments back and forth. They are just so kind and supportive of each other. I sure hope that online attitude sticks with them!! That is one of my goals with integrating blogging in the classroom. When we got back, they were so eager to get back to blogging right away. We are doing fun posts for now so they get better at logging in, posting, commenting, and making good sentences online. By February, I want to start blogging about our reading story and doing math! I can't wait! The kids are catching on quick and teaching the ones who are struggling with the technology. It is just starting out to be such a great experience!
What are some of your favorite things this week!? Head over to the link up and let us know!


  1. Oooh! I am jealous of your delay! It is cold here, and it snowed a tiny bit, but we have school as always. How fun that your kids are blogging. What a great idea!

  5. I use exit tickets in my classroom too! I absolutely love them!! We had -35 degrees F (windchill) here today... so I hear you on the cold part! I wish summer was hear already!!
