I have completely neglected the blog. Life happens…
I had a daughter 11 months ago. We are beyond happy and super tired, so creating new stuff and posting on the blog was not a priority. In fact I have started this post so many times I had to edit the age of the baby twice. 😉
After a whole year at home with the baby I feel (almost) ready to go back to school.
Before leaving the class I packed most of my personal stuff into 6 big boxes and took them home. I still left a ton of personal stuff because I was feeling tired (pregnant). I wish I didn’t take so much home, because I ended having a wonderful sub, and everything was in perfect conditions.
I loved being a teacher again. I have an awesome group this year. I loved decorating the classroom and organizing everything. And I am enjoying read aloud time more than ever. During these months I have bought many books and I can’t wait to show them to my students.
After a whole month teaching half-day I love my new situation. I have my day in the classroom but I go back early enough to enjoy the afternoons as a mom. I don’t know how this is going to work with TpT but as you can see she is already helping. 😉

This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy!
They love everything crafty!
I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.
We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
We have been working on Proper Nouns and Common nouns. If you have been following for a while you know that I would not miss the opportunity to create a craft. So we created these Fall trees and I asked the kids to classify the nouns (Proper Nouns on the left/Common Nouns on the right). We also added the definition in the little boxes.
Get the pattern here (English & Spanish). I added some blank leaves to write their own nouns.
On the other hand I finished my Fall crafts with the first grade classrooms. I love being the Art Teacher! We created cute Fall leaves in a very short session.
First we glued a leave in the middle of a yellow paper. Then added some colorful strips of paper as borders.
The kids added the eyes made of punched circles and drew the arms and legs. It worked great and they were really proud of them!
