Things I Love - May Edition

5/03/2014 / Leave a Comment

Spring makes me think of dresses and I have purchased a few new ones that I simply adore and had to share with you!

Lately I have been all about Evan Picone. I bought these two back in the winter, and now I found three more I am smitten with!

Click the pictures or store names for links if you would like to check them out!
I found this one on Macy's.com, and with my gift cards and the promo code, I paid nothing! <3

It is available in a pink and yellow pattern too, but I love the olive green and cream mixed with the purple and teal combo!

This was on ideeli, on sale for $45.99 with 20% off and free shipping! It only cost $36!
Here is the best deal of all! I had been eyeing it on both Macy's and ideeli for months, but I ended up purchasing it from TJ Maxx's new online site! I wasn't even aware that they had one until last month! Maybe that is not a good thing to have found out... ;) They had it for the best price of all, only $29.99!
What is a dress without a fabulous jacket to wear over it? Especially in New England when the weather can be wicked fickle this time of year!

I scored this jacked by Bar III on Macy's.comand with my gift cards - and their friends and family discount - I paid...nothing!! I cannot wait for this one to arrive! (Wednesday cannot come soon enough!)

How about you? Any great spring/summer finds you would like to share? Let me know in the comments below!

Irregular Vowels Games Set

5/01/2014 / Leave a Comment

I am looking forward to using this Irregular Vowels game set in one in my Word Study rotations after vacation. My students could definitely use a refresher in the variety of sounds that these 11 vowels can make.

There are seven game boards:

• igh (ex: fright, bright, limelight, airtight…)

• ng (ex: tongue, slung, fling, wrong…)

• ous and ost (ex: joyous, serious, ghost, almost…)

• ow and oo (ex: grow, plow, moose, book…)

• au and oi (ex: gauze, clause, hoist, foil…)

• tion and sion (ex: mention, fiction, erosion, fusion…)

• augh and ough (ex: laugh, caught, through, dough…)


* All graphics are created by Pretty Grafik Designs *

I also included a key to help them decode these words. It has a description of the sound the vowels make, as well as examples.

The score sheet makes a great exit slip. It allows me to see how well each group worked together, and I am able to assess whether or not we need to do a whole class review on one of the sounds.

As a lot of these words are higher level, many of my students use a dictionary (online or a book) to look up the words prior to writing their context sentence. This is a nice way to build vocabulary while they play the game.

This set is available in my TpT shop and it is discounted for the first 24 hours!
