Veterans Day Pics, Turkey Math & a Freebie!!

Happy Veterans Day! I'm so happy to have this day off to spend with my family! In years past we had professional development on Veterans Day, but this year we got it off! My husband had a 4 day weekend (one thing to love about the Army, 4 day weekends for federal holidays!) so he was tasked with taking Sullivan to the doctor for his check-up and shots. Good news - Sullivan's hip click is gone so no more worries about dysplasia! Bad news - his skin is soooo dry but the only thing we can put on it is hydrocerin since he's so young, and the hydrocerin does almost nothing for it, so rather than having baby soft skin, Sullivan's little forehead feels like sandpaper :(  He apparently took his shots like a champ but was a bit sad that evening:


On Friday my school had a Veterans Day breakfast. In addition to myself, 3 other teachers at my school are vets! Our music teacher  put together a great program and I thought the cafeteria looked super:




My class did our part to help decorate the hallways for Veterans Day with this cute craft from Hadar:


Its kind of hard to read, but this one says "Thank you for serving our country. You are the best soldier in the world."

 "Thank you for fighting for freedom Thank you for our country. I love you soldier." Awww!

Our Veteran's Day Roll & Cover games were a hit inside the classroom too!

I'm spending today cleaning house and getting progress reports finished (progress reports already?! Didn't I just send home report cards?!). Yesterday I finished up my Turkey Math pack that covers all the skills we have been working on, plus the ones coming up in the next several weeks. Can I just say that I love teaching math and this pack makes me so happy! Its going to be so much fun that I'm rather jealous of my student teacher - it has been so hard to stay out of my room! This week I ducked back in several times to help out with our craft and do a few lessons, but next week I'm turning over the reins 100%! Anyways, here are some images from this pack:

It is truly remarkable that after your time fighting for our country you are still doing your part to fight for our children. It is people like you who keep our country afloat! Thank you for all that you do, and for the amazing work you share with fellow educators on this blog! I, like your student teacher, am about to take on full time teaching in my Kindergarten classroom and could really benefit from what looks like an amazing math packet. Thank you for sharing!

You poor little guy....i feel your pain. My daughter is now 8, but she had severe eczema as a baby and still has it now. Have you tried Aquaphor? It is greasy, but it works wonders and helps with the itchyness of it. I lather my daughter up with it when she gets out of the bath and it really helps with her dry patches.

I would LOVE to be able to use your math packs in my classroom. We are in the middle of assessments for reports cards, which is oh so painful, and these would come in handy for them to do while I do assessments. And to use for the rest of the year.

I used "aquaphillic" on my kiddos. You have to ask the pharmacist for it... but you don't need a prescription. I have only been able to find it at Walmart though. It is WONDERFUL and can be put on everywhere (not too close to the eyes). Our dermatologist told us about it... if you have any questions - please email! jennifer.steinacher@meeker.k12.co.us
