Welcome Spring!

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your day, and have had a great weekend. I think the cooler weather in my part of Texas is finally over for the year which means plenty of sunshine and sandals ahead!
In honor of Easter, a few teacher friends and I are throwing a TpT sale! Stop by our stores and check out all the amazing resources we have for you.
Here's a sneak peek of what we're learning in my class.
Tuesday and Thursday of this week is STAAR testing. We don't take the test in second grade, but we're going to spread some encouragement to our class of fourth grade buddies. I just posted Treat Tag Freebies in my store. Simply fill a baggie with cereal or cookies and you're done!
We're also tackling the skill of telling time on an analog clock. Telling time is one math skill that certainly takes practice and patience to master for students. One way the minis are practicing time on an analog clock is with Time Task Cards.

In addition to tackling the basics, we're digging deeper and learning about elapsed time as well. Spring Forward can be used during any time of year to teach or review elapsed time skills. 
Check out two of my minis working in small groups. They LOVE using the iPad to self check their answers.

I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Currently March

Oh my goodness y'all....
I've been a HORRIBLE blogger lately! I posted nothing in February and barely anything in January! I must make it a point to get back on track with blogging. My Bloglovin' news feed hasn't been shown any attention lately. To get back in the swing of things, I'm linking up with Farley for some March Currently fun! 
Listening- I have no shame in admitting I watch all of the Real Housewives series. Up next is The People vs. O.J. Simpson on FX. Has anyone else been watching that?
Loving- I found a recipe on Pinterest a couple of weeks ago that I'm finally getting around to trying tonight. The recipe includes chicken and asparagus. I hope it turns out good!
Thinking- At this point I'm learning towards laundry being done tonight as a great big NO.
Wanting- It's been a while since I've had ice cream. There's just something so delicious about a bowl of Blue Bell...
Needing- I seriously have the attention span of a goldfish sometimes. I have every intention of doing one thing at a time, then get side tracked. It takes me foreverrrr to write a blog post.
Polling Site- Thankfully my school isn't a polling site. I'm in agreement with Farley about schools not being polling sites.
Don't forget to link up and share your currently post!
