Time for a Hall Pass

Today I get to combine two of my favorite things into one post.
#1 I LOVE linky parties. # 2 I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Reagan from Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits.  She is one of my all time favorites
(click here to read my previous post).  So joining in on her Hall
Pass Linky Party was a NO BRAINER!!
This hall pass comes at a perfect time.  We are closing in fast on the 120th day of school so I love the idea of chilling out and taking a little timeout.  So let's get this party started.
This week I finished up my newest TPT Product ~ Shake-It and Make-It.  I've been doing these sheets with my class all year long but I finally put all the parts together into this set. 
If you are looking for a fun way to teach your kids about decomposing numbers to 10 then this is the packet for you.  Here are some more pictures of some of the pages you will get in this set.  
If you would like a chance to win this unit be sure to enter the rafflecopter below. 
This is my favorite Area of my classroom my reading center.  I try to switch things out throughout the year with themed books, mini books, brochures, maps, cook books, whisper phones, board books, magazines, and holiday glasses.  
I use lots of Signals in my class but this is one of my new finds.  If this is your product please let me know so that I can credit you because it is a LIFESAVER!!!!  I have this sign on my board under my center wheel as a reminder to my students.  At the beginning of the year I taught them this rule by holding up 3 fingers as my visual.  During workstations if someone came up to ask me a question about their task I would hold up 3 fingers to remind them of this rule.  9 times out of 10 they would return to their table and not come back because someone in their team helped them. 
Besides all of my friends at work who help to keep me together, these are my Sanity.  I keep a pair of my old Nike flipflops under my table at school.  After school I will immediately put these on to rest my tired feet.  Sometimes I even wear them during my break when my kids are out of the room. . . shhhhh don't tell anyone.

There you have it a little glimpse into my world.  If you need a hall pass click here to join the party.  Well I'm off to do some blog hopping.  SHINE on everyone.
