Dr. Seuss Week Day 3

Wacky Wednesday!  And a Wacky Wednesday it was!  We had a two-hour delay this morning, and not the kind of "snuggle up in bed and drink hot chocolate because it's snowing" kind of two-hour delay.  It was a "OMG! I'm going to die because their is a tornado warning, and it sounds like a train is coming through my living room" kind of two-hour delay.  The tornado missed my neck of the woods, but there was a touchdown nearby that did some damage.

I was a little bummed about the delay today because we didn't have reading groups, and I had some really cool rhyming activities planned, thanks to Rachelle @ What the Teacher Wants.  She has created an AWESOME Dr. Seuss unit full of fun literacy and math activities! 

Find it on Rachelle's TPT here

Since today was Wacky Wednesday, everyone in Kindergarten was supposed to dress "crazy" (clothes backwards, inside out, mis-matched, etc.).  I did not particpate in this because.....well I just had NO idea what to wear!  Shouldn't be that hard right?  I mean it is CRAZY day, I can wear whatever!  I just couldn't stand the thought of wearing clothes that didn't match!  But I did wear my new shoes, which I have to say are pretty awesome!

Converse makes this super cute Dr. Seuss shoes!  Mine are from The Lorax, but they have all different kinds from all different books!  I love love love them! 

Despite all the craziness this morning, it turned out to be a beautiful day!  Check back tomorrow for more!

Dr. Seuss Week Day 2

Hooray! Hooray!  It's Pajama Day!  The book for today's theme was The Cat in the Hat.  Why The Cat in the Hat on Pajama Day you ask?  Well I don't really know the answer to that... It is what is!  I would like for you to think of any other job where you can wear your pajamas to work, not just once (Polar Express Day), but TWICE!  That's right people!  There are no other jobs (fun jobs) where you get to do that!
Here is a list of the funny things the kiddos said to me/about me today:
-"Look! Miss Fuchs has on a tuxedo!" (a.k.a a robe)
-"Miss Fuchs, you look weird!"
-"Miss Fuchs, you look funny!"
-"Miss Fuchs you wook 'zactly wike a wittle girl 'cept your weally tall!"

We had a couple of celebrity appearances today in our room!  Justin Bieber (every little girl's dreamboat) showed up to read The Cat in the Hat to us!

And Tim Tebow (my dreamboat) showed up to read us Green Eggs and Ham (dramatic sigh!).  He's so dreamy!

Tune in tomorrow to see what's next!

Dr. Seuss Week Day 1

It's my most favorite celebration of the year (besides Christmas)!  This year at Loge, the kindergarten classes have decided to have a theme for each day.  Today's theme was Oh, The Places You'll Go!  Everyone was supposed to dress up as their favorite Dr. Seuss character, and I chose to dress up as Sally from Cat in the Hat. 

Me as Sally from Cat in the Hat

A couple weekends ago I went up to Indianapolis to visit by brother and sister at IUPUI, and we went shopping.  I found this cute little navy blue and red polka dress (a perfect "teacher" dress).  Whenever I was trying to decide what to be for dress up day, I remembered that I bought that dress and thought it would make a perfect "Sally" dress!  I added a headband that I had wrapped in red ribbon, flipped my hair out with a curling iron, and Voila! a perfect "Sally"!

We had a really great turn out for our dress up day!  We had appearances from Cat in the Hat, Thing 1, Thing 2, Thidwick the Kindhearted Moose, and Mr. Brown (from Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?)

Part of the class on dress up day (I had to block out the faces to protect the innocent!)

I also thought I would share the bulletin board Cori and I did for the month of March.  We have an unspoken competition with the class across the hall, and this month I think we definitely gave them a run for their money! 

The whole shebang!

The middle...It's a giant Dr. Seuss birthday cake (which I made out of construction paper)

Found this gem on Pintrest and decided we HAD to do them!
We added their faces to ours (which I of course blocked out!).

One fish, Two fish craft.
I manipulated their hands in different ways to create different kinds of fish.  Then we added googly eyes and bubble stickers.  Also a Pintrest find! Gotta love Pintrest!

Stay tuned for more Dr. Seuss stuff later in the week!

Here Goes Nothin'!

Here Goes Nothin'!

Welcome to my blog!  I never thought my life was exciting enough to start a blog, given that I am not yet married, and I have no kids.  However, I am an aspiring teacher, on the quest to find a full-time job for the upcoming school year, and I do have an amazing boyfriend, fantastic family, great co-workers, and a pretty darn fun group of friends, so I figured "WHAT THE HECK! Let's go for it!"

God has blessed me with so many great things!  I am so loving my life with a cherry on top!
