First of all I am sorry I am just now posting my Fashion Friday, lets just say Friday didn't go quite as planned. You see I am not the type of person who likes to talk about what my principal calls "hard topics." I would rather just keep it all inside and forget about it, but on Friday that didn't happen. I had a "hard talk" with one of my colleagues and lets just say it didn't turn out how I hoped. I felt like she didn't understand what I was trying to say and it was just a MESS! Well that pretty much ruined most of my Friday and Saturday, because I could only think about whats going to happen on Monday. Ugh! My kids were by the way SUPER good all week. Thanks kiddos I am glad you can be responsible and caring!
Here is the Fashion Friday post I meant to have for you on FRIDAY! Over Spring Break I found this great jacket from Kohls with my mom. I knew I had to have it because it was so versatile and of course it was 40 percent off!
It is a dark greenish brown color and hits you in the all right places. This is especially true for shorter girls, because I am definitely one of them! I paired it with a striped shirt and chunky heals on Monday:
I also thought about pairing it with this cute lace top from Charming Charlies and flats for a more girly look!
I also think this jacket is great for the weather now, but will also be acceptable to wear in the fall. I just recently purchased the jacket, so they probably still have it in the stores.
On to school news this week! We started our measurement unit, which by the way I HATE measurement. It just never seems like much fun to me but of course my kids were just enthralled by it! I created this anchor chart to help them remember some of the things we have learned so far...
Lastly I found this great idea from Pinterest for word work or fluency. The lady used a digital picture frame and uploaded pictures of her sight word cards for her kids to practice! I couldn't believe it! It was so cool! I think I might also take pictures of common phrases for my kiddos that already know all their sight words. We do fluency every day so I think I might allow a group to come over each day and work using the picture frame. I think the kids are going to LOVE this. I am having a hard time finding a cheap picture frame though. Kohls and Target are pretty expensive so I will be looking at the dreaded Walmart later this week. This is a picture of one I have at home, but it is a little to fancy to bring to school.
Mine also had different alums you can create which I figured is perfect for different levels of sight words! I can't wait to try this out with my kiddos! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! It is suppose to be 90 degrees here today which is totally crazy for only being April. Well I am off to post some comments on some of my bloggy friend's blogs because I feel like I have just gotten so behind this week!
