Is Pinterest Frozen??

Has anyone else noticed that Pinterest seems to be frozen?? I've been pinning a little less but my followers # hasn't gone up in a couple weeks. I find that odd. I've been stuck at 1691 forever! Weird! Has anyone else noticed this?

Grammar Tales

Grammar Tales

I posted yesterday about a fun adjective activity and I  recently posted fun vidoes and projects we have done while reviewing grammar. I use Grammar Tales by Scholastic as a tool to teach grammar. It has a nice little teacher guide, picture books to reinforce concepts, and worksheet pages to make a student book for each concept. Here is a link to Amazon that will hook you right up!!

I've had this set for a while and this is the first year I've really started the kit and stuck with it. I have to say that combining the songs/videos, using the kit, and occasional projects have really made grammar fun. The kids love it when they see me reach for one of the books or pull up our latest song/video. The kit really doesn't cost that much and I think it would be a great addition for any classroom!!

Let me know what you think!

Adjectives

Hey blogger buddies!!

I hope all is well out in chaotic holiday blogger land!! In school we have been BUSY!!! We just had our first round of conferences and the holiday craze is soooo here!! 
We have been discussing adjectives. 

I read a cute book about bugs that focused on adjectives. I decided that I would grab out the fun stuff (paper, glitter, buttons, etc.) and we would make unique bugs of our own. They then made lists of words that described their bugs. I typed the lists out in a sassy font and they cut them with fun scissors. The bugs turned out a little more disorganized than I had envisioned but I must remind myself that they are only 3rd graders and they really did have soooo much fun making them.


Things are rockin busy at the Lutton house! I enjoyed some way super fun shopping after Thanksgiving. My "team" and I were in and out by 1:30ish. We have sooo much fun each and every year. My long time friend Jill and her supper sassy cousin Lexi and I usually stand in the cold a couple hours but man do we grab up bargains and laugh a ton! We kept calling ourselves shopping ninjas. :) Good time!
That is me in the WHITE coat. :)  At this time we had been waiting outside of Toys R Us for over an hour and it dawned on me that in all the years we do this I had never snapped a photo.
