Love Me Some Polka Dots and Chevron and a Quick Peek at My Week

Happy Sunday, friends!

As I was looking around my classroom this week and taking stuff down, I started to think about what I wanted to change about my room. School is out in 7 days and I'm thinking about next year already. I must be crazy!!

I have a pirate theme in my room this year. I bought red and black polka dotted fabric for my bulletin boards. I just love polka dots. I've fallen in love with chevron patterns. Who hasn't?

So, while Brayden has been napping this weekend I made me some new word wall words and headers for my classroom next year. Yep, they are polka dot and chevron themed. I can't wait to put them up. I'll definitely be making lots more stuff for my classroom this summer with polka dots and chevron to match my word wall. Super duper excited about my theme.

This is my last full week of school. I'm off tomorrow, but next week we have 3 half days. This is it. I've got a lot of fun stuff planned this week.

The game plan:

I'm so excited to be using Sara Cooley's, First Grader At Last,  Hollywood themed packet. We will be making our memory books and I'll be having a Hollywood themed party filled with food as awards of Friday. Click the picture to check out her packet. Pictures of our party to come...
We will be using my review packet for all the common core standards we have leaned this year. Click the picture to check it out. They sure have learned a lot. We took our math benchmark last week and my lowest score was a 75. I'm so proud of my little smarties!!

We have been transitioning from centers to independent reading. They sit in their seat and read. They have a reading notebook where they have certain pages to fill out every day. I miss centers!!

I'm bringing out the play dough this week. My little monsters will be making habitats and animals and writing about it.

Lots and lots of games are planned this week as we review out word wall words. I'm finally getting to use my Duck Dynasty themed packet. That makes me happy, happy, happy! Click the picture to to check it out. 

Even though school is practically over, summer fever has set in for my students (and me), we are still reviewing and learning. 

Any fun activities planned for the end of the year in your classroom?  I'd love to hear about them.

Lots of love, 


  1. you stole my theme idea ;-) LOVE it!! cannot wait to see what you come up with :-) if only I knew how to do stuff like that....

    1. You can do stuff like this! I said the same thing to myself and realized that I could do it.

      I hope I can help with your theme! :-)
