Sunday Smorgasboard: June 22, 2014

Happy Sunday! I'm linking up with the fabulous Michelle for a little Sunday Smorgasbord action. 


We recently went to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge for a few days with Eric's family. Here are a few pics from our fun little getaway.



Earlier in the summer I talked Eric into coming to school to help me move my desk. I've taught six years and my desk has been in the same spot the whole time. It was there when I got the room and I just never moved it. Well I decided it was time for a change. Here is where we moved it. Please ignore the mound of stuff that is piled on top of it. I snapped the pic right after we moved it. 


I've been spending lots of time with this cutie baby. Love him big!

 Poor little booger has a cataract in his right eye. We had to make a trip to the vet recently.

And since we were in town I thought we would swing by school for a bit {or a few hours! ha} to do a few things. So we ran by McDonalds to grab a happy meal for Dexter :) and then headed to school. 

Dexter likes to help! ha


Here is some of the things I worked on while me and Dexter were at school.

New reading focus wall...I will attach the weekly skills, high frequency words, spelling words, etc. to the cut-outs on the board each week. My desk used to be right in front of this board. Since moving the desk, it has opend up a ton of space and new possibilities!

You can get the polka dot party border and the jumbo bw designer cut-outs I used on the board from Creative Teaching Press!

For the header I attached bold brights 4" letters to 6" bw designer cut-outs both from Creative Teaching Press. I love how it turned out! :)

You can get the monkeys and bold brights letters that I used for the tubs from Creative Teaching Press

Next year I plan on using Smart Cookie Math from Lucky to Be in First. Here is the display I made for that. Not completely finished with it...but it's a start!

I plan on using Jennifer Bates sight word superstars next year. This is the display I made for that. I used the shining stars bulletin board set from Creative Teaching Press for this display.


We have been enjoying the lake every chance we get! I love spending summer days with this guy! :)

Well that's all I got for this Sunday Smorgasbord post. Don't forget to link up with Michelle with your Sunday Smorgasbord! :)
