Teacher Week Linky Party

It's times for another Linky Party! If you want to join the fun go check out this blog:

Teacher Week Party at I'm Blog Hoppin

Today is Must Have Mondays! Here are mine. I am giving ones I have used the past year as a subsitute teacher. Enjoy!

Coffee. I have a thermos which I fill with coffee from my wonderful Keurig. Sometimes on a payday I treat myself to a Starbucks. 

I bring a few picture books. One of my go to books is The Substitute Teacher from the Black Lagoon.

Stickers! Kidos just love stickers!! It is amazing what they will do for a sticker especially if it smells! 

I also bring some cute paper so I can leave a note about the day. 

I hope this helps some of those fellow substitutes out there in blog land. I also hope teachers leave a pile of these goodies for their future subs. I just love those classrooms that have substitute teacher folders with extra supplies. 

Happy Reading!

J-E-T-S !!!

Guess what I did this weekend????

That's right - My sweet husband and I went to Cortland, NY to watch the JETS at a training session.

We spent Saturday evening in Syracuse eating at a delicious Italian restaurant called "Spaghetti Warehouse" and then went shopping! Then we woke up VERY early to head to Cortland. 

If you know me, you know I love football, and I love those NY JETS !! 

All three quarterbacks practicing drills at the same time - HEAVENLY !

I wish I could have been this close to Sanchez and Tebow!!!! 


It was so neat seeing all the different plays and drills! 

One last quick picture before we ( well, me - since my DH HATES thruway driving)  drove back home!

Maybe next time I can watch a scrimmage. YAY - FOOTBALL !

Making Sentences

I tutor in the summer and I have been working on reading skills with a student. We have moved from unscrambling one cut up sentence into unscrambling three cut up sentences. She was having trouble putting them in order and she suggested  I number the bag. What a smartie! For now, while she gets use to doing more sentences, I did number the bags!

Then she put the sentences together and glued them in her notebook. 


This is one of my favorite activities to do with kidos! I just wish I did not have to do so much cutting! 

Happy Reading!
