It's beginning to look a lot like ...Christmas VACATION! ...and finally Seating Lesson Plans

Hey All. Whoooooos been slacking in the posts department? THIS GIRL! But...break officially started today and it is amazing to just be able to sit, watch TV, leisurely drink my hazelnut creamer with a splash of coffee and R-E-L-A-X. And the most exciting news...I have 58 followers as of compared to some blogging superstars this may not be a lot....but to TRULY is amazing. I had pleaded stomped and cryed asked begged Santa for Christmas to have 100 followers but I am coming to terms with the fact that that was a HEFT goal which may not actually happen...and you know what? I am JUST THANKFUL for those of you who are following my posts, typos (sorry!) and all....

It is SO HARD to juggle being a wife, housekeeper, teacher and a blogger that is followER worthy? How do you guys do it?

Well...I have been so surprised at the response I had to "Fewer Seats than Kids" so with the permission of my amazing teammate Melissa, we have decided to give you guys the lesson plans Melissa created (picture me, jumping with my hand in the air saying...but I helped too) ...full well knowing SHE was the brains behind these lessons!...anyways we used these to begin our school year introducing this out of the box way of designing and setting up your classrooms.

Lot's of you have said you are ready to get started when you come back from break and why not? is a NEW year....(hah!, GET IT?...2012...) Anyways...adapt these, use these, and PLEASE comment when you do...ohh, and keep sending people over to my blog! :)


Ohh and if you missed my letter to talk your parents and administration into inform your parents and administration of this NEW life changing approach to teaching this click HERE

Merry Christmas...vacation teacher buddies! :)

  8. thanks for linking up BUT I don't see your "currently" anywhere???

  9. I cant figure it out!! :( I thought filling out the Linky information at the bottom would help but no SUCH luck! :) I am up early and at it again! sorrrrry

  10. You're wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing. Merry Christmas.

  11. Love theses explicit plans! We have a lot of these same choices in our room. I love the fewer seating plans. My only dilemna, I regularly have is with art projects. Many of the places we would use for math or reading or writing, just aren't accommodating for art type projects.


Thanks for stopping by... See you in paradise!
