Dr. Seuss Giveaway, teaching /ay/ and /ai/, and new small group area

Warning: this is a random post ( as if you didn't already know that based on the title!)
 First things first: Have you entered the HUGE Dr. Seuss giveaway that I'm a part of on Teaching Blog Addicts? I'm giving away my Dr. Seuss Unit
Click the pic and go enter now! 

Second: we are finally learning about the married couple {ai} and {ay}. My kids have been waiting for this sound for so long so they were excited that we have finally gotten to it.

Third: I moved my small group area last week to the front of my classroom like I had it last year. We needed a change and it works SO MUCH BETTER here. You wouldn't believe how much it helped with our reading :) :) Sometimes we just need a change of scenery. 

I've had a lot of requests for a /ai/, /ay/ packet and I'm working on it now. I will hopefully have it finished within the next couple of days. Tonight's Glee night so I can promise it won't be done tonight. Any other Gleeks out there?? :) 


  1. love your ideas!


  2. I love your small group area...so fun and inviting. I have to know where you got those green and purple chairs!

  3. I absolutely love the green and pink chairs at your table!!! Do the kids use them? Where did you find them?

  4. Yes! Love Glee. I am from Lima, Ohio, where the story line takes place!


  5. Adorable, as always! LOVE YOUR BLOG. Your little ai/ay unit sounds great. I'm excited to see/hear more about it.

    Thanks for sharing, darlin!

    Come visit my blog sometime. I just posted some freebies (cvce and y at the end of a word)
