Down but not Completely Out

Ugh, so I am home with a case of pneumonia. I usually plunge on when I'm sick, like most teachers and moms, but this has really run me over! :(

So, after a morning of realizing that I am not missing anything on TV while I'm at school, I resorted to blog world and showing off some things I created this weekend in between bouts of coughing, sleeping, and body aches.

One is for rounding, while the other is part of a new series I'm creating called "Grammar Adventures," where you get a mini book to read to your class, then they have to do a hunt for clues to solve the "mystery." (They even get a badge at the end! I plan on using it this week with my class, if I can ever get there!). You can find them at my TpT store, but for the first 3 comments below, I will send one or both to you for FREE! :) My only request is to comment on them on my TpT store after you've had a chance to use them!

The day is young, though. I'll be at school at 3 to pick up my personal kiddos, but maybe I'll create some things in the meantime. Still need a few more homophone, abbreviation, and fraction activities, not to mention life cycles and maps! Why is it our mind always goes so much faster than reality???

Hi! I'm your newest follower. I am a second grade teacher in Idaho and have a blog I love your items in this post. my email is I can't believe I am finally one of the first to comment, I am usually too late. Have a wonderful day! It is raining, snowing, blowing here, but I don't care it's spring break.

Jill, I am excited for you! :) I'm like you...I'm always like the fifth person, or later, to respond! Congratulations! I will be sending you those this evening, if the internet connection gods are with me :)

Happy Spring Break! Ours starts April 7 (but we have a field trip the 6th!). Gosh, it's 60s here...and was up to 80s last week! Hope you thaw out soon!

Hello there, I hope you feel better soon. I teach 2nd in Calif and have had pneumonia three times - until two years back (we had to have a whooping cough booster) when my GP finally said he was giving me the pneumonia vaccine too. You might consider it - it's done wonders for my respiratory issues. :)

I don't have a blog and have only recently begun blogstalking, but I'd love to try out your homophones unit. My email is starsgoblue at sbcglobal dot net. Thank you and I wish you a speedy recovery!

Thanks for the advice on the vaccine...I had no idea they even offered one! This is maybe the third time in my life I've had pneumonia, but it's a definite consideration since this has kept me out of school 3 days this week! :(

I'm speeding you the Homophone activity! :) Hope you enjoy it!

:) Chrissy
