Friends~My Class is Diggin IT Linky is Under Way!

Friends~ My Class is Diggin it Linky is under way! I am getting in the back to school spirit with Cristina Bainbridge over at Bunting, Books, and Bainbridge to show you what my room 331 really digs in her My Class is Diggin IT Linky!!

First, without a doubt room 331 totally digs Roscoe Riley Books!  They get a huge kick out of Roscoe's shenanigans and the fact that he always starts out in time out.  They gobbled up these books like crazy!  I even created some Novel Studies for them because they became so popular in class. (Thanks Mrs. Lewis for introducing us!)  You can click the book below to check out one of my studies.

Second, just like Mrs. Bainbridge's class, my kiddos love Smencils.  It was a favorite in the writing center.  Any student that earns a 25/25 on their Whiz Quiz this year will get to use a Smencil on their next quiz. (The Whiz Quiz is our weekly spelling and review quiz.)

They also love smelly markers that we now call "smarkers." 
 Mr. Sketch are my very favorites!

My class flipped over our Moc Iditarod.  In fact, I just saw a copy of an article written about it in our local Harrisburg Magazine!

I am so proud of our team and how we all worked together to make this day possible for our kiddos!  

My students also LOVE singing and chanting in the classroom.  Their very favorite song is Prove It from my Singing is Learning Collection.  Check them out below!

My 2nd grade friends really enjoyed our Touch Points during our Daily 5 time. It allows them to be more independent during center time.

The list goes on!  I can't get into my classroom until August so I am going from memory!  
Thanks to Christina for putting this together.  It is a great way for us to reflect on what make learning meaningful and fun in previous years.
