Movie Stars

I participated in the Seller Challenge and we were supposed to create our masterpiece.  I have been working on my movie star room theme FOREVER!!!! Its for a coworker and I am sure she thinks I forgot about it. But I have been busy! The seller challenge was awesome but it also took up some of my other TpT creation time and then came Periscope I have been slightly less productive as I watched what everyone had to say! You can find me at @TeacherBronco on Periscope.

So here is the movie star room theme complete with award show glitter and popcorn! Digital glitter and digital popcorn!






I will Periscope the complete set soon. My Luau theme has been pretty popular this summer so I hope that this one will be too! Let me know what you think. I wish I could show it to you all printed out and set up but since its not for my room and I am stingy with my ink (I know I need the HP ink program.) I hope you will be happy with the post and the Periscope. Maybe I will be able to add pictures later.

Sight Word Jenga

My school uses Fry Words and I wanted to find a fun way to work on the sight words with my kiddos. I know that I will have several kiddos this year that will need to practice these and I don't want it to be tedious! So I just came up with the idea of Sight Word Jenga!



I saw the idea for math fact Jenga and I wanted to figure out a way to use it in my literacy classroom. The prep was pretty easy. It took about 10 minutes (if that) to write the words on the blocks. I wrote the words on the widest parts of the blocks and did two words for each block. I also chose to do two different colors but more would probably be cuter.  I snagged my Jenga set at a garage sale so its okay with me that it is missing a few pieces but I had enough to write the 3rd 100 Fry Words on them. I am considering finding more sets and doing some of the other Fry words on them.




Here is how it works:


I think this along with Poison Apple  will be a small group favorite!

Periscope



I did not make TpT Las Vegas and I am bummed about it but it was totally worth it to stand by my besties side on her wedding day. The wedding week activities were fun and the wedding itself was so beautiful! My sweet girls were flower girls too.  It was their second flower girl gig this summer. They are pros now so we will start charging a fee!

I tried to keep up with all of the Vegas happenings on social media and it seems like the next big thing is Periscope. I have watched a few live streams and it seems so much fun. I will have to come up with something to share soon but I am really enjoying live videos of everything. You can search Teaching In Bronco Country or find me at TeacherBronco. I am on Twitter too at BroncoTeacher I am working on figuring out both of these! Please check me out and stay tuned! 

UPDATE: I have done two Periscopes! I will be back soon to share my classroom and some other share worthy items!

July Currently

I am linking up with Oh Boy 4th Grade for July's currently!
Listening: My little ones are really enjoying the summer time and playing in the back yard. I think that they could do it for hours! We love bubbles and chalk! 
Loving: I love all of the fun summer time things like BBQs, the pool and free time. 
Thinking: We have two golf tournaments, a wedding and a vacation packed into this month. Its busy but fun! I can't wait for all of this to start this week. 
Wanting: I want a new dress for the occasions above! I just need to find the time to go shopping and survive it toting two, two year olds with me. Anyone want to baby sit?  
Needing: I need to finish my seller challenge masterpiece. The holiday weekend left me way behind. I am working on a room theme for a coworker and I have been taking forever! I need to get on it. 
All Star: I have been doing a bunch of little projects and I am loving them! Its fun to be crafty and accomplish something.
